My only dream was going pro...until she blazed back into my life.
Cara Moreno - my biggest regret - just signed with the women's soccer team in my city. I tell myself to keep my distance...but I can't stay away.
She says the most powerful man in the sport is set on destroying her career. That behind closed doors, he's hurting her and everything she's worked for.
I doubted her once before and rejected her. Now, I'll do anything to make things right and protect what’s ours.
Exposing the truth means risking my career. But how can I chase my dreams knowing hers are slipping away?
With both our futures on the line, I’m ready to risk it all and expose the truth. Losing her once was devastating enough. I won't let her down a second time.
What we share is electric, and protecting her feels worth any sacrifice. This time, I'll fight for her trust…and hopefully her heart.
A high-stakes, sizzling sports romance, Forging Glory delivers courage, second chances, and a fight for love against all odds.

Thank you Netgalley and Author Collective 20 for letting me read Forging Glory.
I liked the book and the tropes where very interesting to me. I'm a fan of sports romance books and always enjoy them.
What I liked about this book is that it was not to long and is fast peaced. I liked the main characters and was interested in them and their progress through the book. Also I loved the side characters because they made the book more enjoyable. I liked the storyline and the plot. In some parts the books was a bit hard to get through. I laughed and was emotional at some parts.. I liked the writing and think that the author did a good job.
The book starts with Wes and Cara together, then separating after a misunderstanding. I actually really liked this aspect of the story, the fact that they started off together and then the story centred around them trying to figure where they went wrong and how to move forward from there.
As a huge sports fan, I found probably enjoyed this more because I understood the football narrative. I have to say though, Lainey Davis did a great job not overcomplicating the technical sports language / content, so even those who aren't sports fans will follow the story easily.
As characters, Wes and Cara are so likeable and you're rooting for them from the beginning. The supporting characters, such as Cara's roommate Jay and Wes' family are equally likeable and add a homely feel to the story. The thread with Cara and the powerful exec overshadowing her success is very similar to a real life incident that played out in women's football recently and I did find myself thinking of this while reading, although it didn't put me off or stop me from enjoying the story.
The only thing I was not so keen on was the front cover of the book, but that is just me personally as I tend to prefer when there are not 'real people' on fictional covers.
None the less, I still very much enjoyed the book and would recommend it.
