Our Review

“You make me want to try.”
“Try what?”
“Be a better man for you.”

This was our second book by P Dangelico, and once again, we fell in love with her characters with this enemies to lovers having the hallmarks we love in a slow burn romance. This author delivers romance with passion, fun, swoon, and emotion and we just devour it!

‘Love isn’t finite. There’s no measure to it. It stretches time and space, loops back around, and expands again. Real love, the selfless kind, transcends our own needs but doesn’t leave us poorer…’

Sadly, we hadn’t met Amanda Shaw and her sweet son Sam in Wrecking Ball (Her brother Cal’s book – Hard to Love #1), and although it didn’t impede on our enjoyment of Bulldozer, it did make us curious to know more about her and Cal relationship, plus a little more of Amanda’s past.

Thirty-three-year-old Amanda Shaw is a single Mum to the sweet 10-year-old Sam. Amanda is a reformed alcoholic, sober for three years, and there’s not a day she doesn’t berate herself for her past choices and actions, nor a moment she doesn’t feel guilt over her parenting. Amanda really should be a little more forgiving of herself because she’s a caring, nurturing and wonderful Mum.

‘Time: The most powerful force in the universe. Some people believe it’s love, but I disagree. Love can be steered, stalled, silenced. Not time. Time doesn’t give a fuck about anything other than itself. Time will roll right over love and march on without missing a beat. ‘

Amanda is about to expand her successful Manhattan Yoga business, The Bend business by opening a branch in the Hamptons over summer. Unable to afford the rent for the duration, her brother and his wife offer their house to her, and it’s just what Amanda needs. A bit of an escape with Sam until he goes to spend time with his father who has been absent for most of Sam’s life. Amanda has a lot on her plate so she’s looking forward to the peace and quite the house in the Hamptons promises.

However, what Amanda didn’t count on her brother also offering up his house to his teammate Grant Hendricks. The grouchy cantankerous star of the Titans NFL team who is recovering from a back injury. Amanda’s first impression of Grant isn’t the best – especially when he fronts up wearing nothing but a pair of pink heart shaped sunglasses and nothing else…not a stitch!

And so, the story begins. Although Grant is grumpy towards Amanda, and they’re constantly at loggerheads, he’s as soft as a kitten to Sam and their dog Roxy. There’s a heart underneath all that brawn somewhere, and finding it beneath the snarky banter, and the arsy behaviour is a joy to see. He really is naughty boy innocence wrapped up in one tall, fit and sexy package!

Both Amanda and Grant come from broken homes, are products of their upbringings, and have demons from their past to work through, both carry a mountain of guilt on their shoulders. Can these two people, untrusting of themselves, open their hearts enough to trust one another?

“Did you wish for me?”
“No. But only because I stopped believing men as good as you existed.”

A sweet, sexy and fun read with sexual tension aplenty! The moments between Sam and his ‘dude-bro’ – Grant MELTED us. The Mum and son situations were heart-warming and funny. OMG! What Sam put his Mum through had us in fits of giggles at times. There’s a scene in the supermarket that’s every parent’s most embarrassing nightmare – oh the humiliation. This story was pure enjoyment.


What happens when a single mother is forced to live with a grumpy, ailing football star? The smolder turns red hot of course.

A standalone follow-up to the best-selling, WRECKING BALL.

Amanda Shaw has pulled it together. It’s taken a couple of years, a boatload of hard work, and a ton of self-discipline, but she finally has her problems in a headlock.

Her yoga studio in the city has become so successful she’s opening one near the beach, and her relationship with her ten-year-old son is improving every day.

The last thing she needs is a monkey wrench thrown into her smoothly running life.

Grant Hendricks is one big monkey wrench.

The four time Defensive Player of the Year, three time NFL sack leader, and all around football god has officially hit rock bottom.

A devastating back injury means he may have to retire and that scares him more than doctors telling him the next hit could leave him paralyzed.

All he needs is a quiet place to think and his teammate’s beach house sounds like just the place. Problem is, the woman already living there.

‘Sometimes passion was a whisper, other times a roar. This time? It was a storm.’


“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
