REVIEW ➞ Second Chance Scandal by M. Robinson


From Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson comes a second chance sports romance.

I was a god on the field and a legend in the bedroom.

Football was my life; women were merely a hobby. I had no interest in settling down until…


She was supposed to be a one-night stand. Like all the rest.

Except, she was nothing like them.
Her smile.
Her laugh.
The way she made me feel…

Make no mistake, I wanted her in a way I’d never wanted any woman before. But the next morning, she just disappeared from my bed and my life, leaving me feeling empty. Only to show up unexpectedly weeks later to tell me…

She’s pregnant.

Oh, did I forget to mention she’s my coach’s daughter?

“My absolute favorite memory of you was—”

“I’ve heard eno—”

“Is how you lit up my world with just a fucking smile.”


I DEVOURED this book. The second I started reading I couldn’t put it down and before I knew it the story was over and I wanted more. I loved Jax and Sophie’s story.

Jax is the GOAT, but when the news of moving to a new team isn’t going well, he needs something to change the public’s view of him. Sophie is a single mom and a romance author. She works hard and does a great job of taking care of her son, Ben. Jax and Sophie also have a history together. Her mother worked for his family and they meet when they were teens, but things changed over the years and its been seven years since they have seen or heard from each other.

Jax and Sophie have no shortage of chemistry, even after seven years without speaking to each other. A whole lot of miscommunication and secrets forever changed the course of their relationship, yet once the truths start to come out and they actually take the time to speak about their history together things start to shift between them.

Jax was unexpected. There were things that made him seem uncaring and kind of a jerk, yet once the truth comes out and the way he is with Sophie shed a new light on him. I loved how hard he worked and how determined he was to prove to Sophie that he isn’t who she thinks he is and that she is the one for him.

If you’re looking for a second chance, fake relationship, surprise baby, sports romance this is one to check out.
