Because love is never enough… 

4.5 Stars 

Santos and Maria's story is not one to be missed. I've thoroughly enjoyed each book in this series, although Goalie can be read as a stand alone. Goalie, is not the easiest book to read, but it's real. It's filled with emotion and not your typical sports romance, the story line is very unique. Goalie reveals the betrayal, loss, heartbreak and devastation, and self recriminations that come from a marriage falling apart. 

M.E. Carter writes about raw, gritty content with characters that are complex, flawed and realistic. She has the ability to create characters that have incredible depth and complexity, that are completely unlike-able, and nonredeemable by their actions. Much like the previous title Groupie, I found that as the book progressed I ultimately began to feel my perceptions regarding the characters change and wanted them to find forgiveness and find their happy ever after. Although at times this story was not easy to read, and was quite sad, it was also uplifting to see these characters come into their own. 

“Mother, reader, storyteller - ME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.”
