The Hail Mary
Waiting Series Book 3
Adult Contemporary Romance, Coming of Age Trilogy
Sixteen years is a long time. In a marriage, it’s a milestone. On the gridiron, it’s a miracle. Reed Johnson wants more time for everything, but time is funny that way.
It can be cruel.
With a body that can’t quite take the hits it used to and a heart tired of being torn in two different directions, Reed is faced with a reality he’s not quite ready for—life without the game. He became a man under Friday night game lights and in college stadium tunnels, and without the grit and the glory that’s earned ten yards at a time, he’s afraid of what kind of man he’ll be.
But there’s more than a game at stake now.
Reed’s wife, Nolan, is afraid too. She’s seen what can happen when the love of her life pushes himself too hard, and she can’t escape the nightmares she relives after almost losing her entire world to one single play on the field.
There is no compromise when it comes to football. Same goes for the heart. You’re either all in, or you get crushed. For Reed and Nolan, the clock is ticking down. Time…it does that. One way or another, they’re going to have to make a choice.
This is their hail Mary.
This is win or lose.
(The Hail Mary is book 3 in The Waiting Series, which follows high school sweethearts Reed Johnson and Nolan Lennox through football, life, love and everything messy that goes along with it. The series begins with Waiting on the Sidelines and Going Long.)
Ginger Scott pulled off the ultimate Hail Mary with this book!
The Hail Mary is the third book in the Waiting on the Sidelines series by Ginger Scott. When I heard that there would be a 3rd book to this series, Ms. Scott made my entire year! This book is everything! The feels, the love, the characters. This book will make you fall in love with the series all over again.
If you have read the first two books in this series, which is absolutely necessary before you start this book, you have already fallen head over heels in love with Reed and Nolan. As a fan of this series, I was so happy to see this book compliment the first two.
This book picks up with Reed and Nolan 17 years after they have been married. The simplicity of the storyline is so genuine. These characters are crystal clear. This is not your average love story, this book gives you a realistic look at the struggles that many relationships go through. How life and circumstances can change a marriage.
The transition from the first two books to this one was flawless. You are swept up in the lives of Reed and Nolan so easily as if no time has passed. It almost felt like visiting an old friend. It was familiar yet new and exciting.
This story will make you sigh, laugh, cry. Every human emotion is woven into the pages of The Hail Mary.
This is a must-read for every Ginger Scott fan!
Start with the first book in the series and fall in love with two high school sweethearts that will take you on a journey of a lifetime.
