Publisher's Summary

Goalie [goh-lee]: (noun) A player in the goal whose duty is to prevent the ball from entering or crossing it

See Santos and Mariana DeGuajarado

As goalie of the Texas Mutiny, Santos is damn good at protecting that net. But he never bothered to protect his marriage. Letting the fame and notoriety go to his head, he lost the things he loved the most...his wife and kids. Now he has one shot to make it right before losing at this relationship game and he's determined not to miss this time. Mariana has been scarred so deeply by Santos's betrayals, she will carry the wounds forever. After almost ten years of marriage though, she knows him well, and she knows he won't let go without a fight. Still, she refuses to be a push over. Because love is never enough...

A romance with a unique storyline.

I very much enjoyed this story. This series is very out of the box exploring themes that are very relatable and yet very unorthodox in the romance genre. I am a huge fan of stories with characters that pursue redemption and forgiveness and I enjoyed this one for that reason. Mariana's situation and perspective made me empathise with her very much, and seeing Santos evolving and face the consequencess of his actions was heartfelt. The female narrator, Kirsten Leigh was great overall. My main feedback on Alexander Cendese's narration is regarding his female voice... It's very difficult to appreciate the story when the female voice done by the male narrator sounds mocking. I enjoyed the story so I pressed forward but I really think his female voice needs some work.

This book should have been named : Cheater

This was a hard story for me; Santos is a cheater, has always been one, continues to be one, so why would he change? Hitting rock bottom and losing his wife and kids didn’t stop him. It was difficult to have empathy, sympathy for him or even to like him. I’m sorry, I hate being harsh but I couldn’t get past all the cheating.

Good third installment

This was an interesting and thought-provoking story. It was different than the first two books in the series, about more than players on a soccer team. I am very particular about my audiobook narrators, and while I enjoyed Alexander’s portrayal of Santos and any other male character, his “female” voice was strange and difficult to listen to. I muddled through, though, since the story was so interesting.

I literally couldn't finish

the relationship development was great but the male narrator does horrible women's voices and at some point I just couldn't care anymore.

Don’t care for cheater

I had a hard time reviewing this story. I didn’t care for cheater. I know it happened in real life. If this woman was okay with the cheater, more power to her. For me, that’s so gross. He’s having sex with groupies and she’s okay with the sex disease and she also grateful to have him around. What a woman! Yucky! Hope they live happily ever after! If you like cheater, this one is for you! Not for me! FYI, I listened about thirty mins and went straight to epilogue, I’m glad I didn’t waste six hours!

Tough Subject for the Romance Section

Infidelity, consequences, anger, sadness, despair, grief and self-destructive behavior. This book pulls no punches. One section shows how we see something can be completely different from what another person sees. Really good book, especially for those that believe extramarital affairs are harmless. One thing for me to make clear in how I see blame in the vast majority of extramarital affairs... The married person is at fault as they made a commitment to their spouse. Blaming the other person is a waste of time as they have no commitment to the marriage.

Good story with real emotions

The story was written really well and the ending was believable. If she had completely "forgotten" his past behavior and they skipped off into the sunset with no worry left, the ending would have been not true to life. I do have to admit, the male narrator's voices for women made me cringe the entire time. He was fine for male characters and narration. Female narrator was fabulous.

So good!

This book was so good. It perfectly portrayed the realities of a relationship that is falling apart. My heart strings were tugged during multiple scenes, and it made me uncomfortable in the best kind of way. I appreciated the struggle that the characters went through to get to their HEA. All that being said, I almost wish there wasn't a 'Hollywood ending' and that these two hadn't gotten back together. Sometimes the HEA is achieved by being apart, even when the couple loves each other. And I feel like this would have been a great book to portray that. But it was still a good story, and I'll happily ready more by this new to me author.

Sometimes its just better to walk away...

I dont know how to really accept this book and this is why, I firmly believe that if you cant truly forgive and completely let go then you just need to walk away. I honestly feel she "forgave" him in her own way but not truly forgive and forget (not that it is an easy thing to do) but just enough to keep him in her life. She found out that it has been happening dince the moment they met and still cant seem to let go. Even in the end she truly hasnt given it her all since she constantly saying she not ready to take the next step and at the first time he was late she completely freaked out and checked she wont ever be able to not doubt him. I honestly believe that this guy wont ever truly gain her trust and she will never truly wholeheartedly forgive him, so why stay, why put yourself through that if you can move on. If its not moving on with other people you can move on for yourself.
