✪ Replay ✪ Amy Daws ✪



  Not all players deserve a second chance… no matter how hot their first chance was.

Football club lawyer, Santino Rossi is known in the locker room as the two-month chump. For years he’s been on a mission to find someone he can share his basil plant with and cure him of his former playboy ways.

Tilly Logan is a fiery, Scottish lass who didn’t bat an eye five years ago when a smoldering Italian pulled her into a nightclub bathroom. He was dark, dangerous, and exactly the good time Tilly was looking for—even if he worked for her over-protective brother’s team.

But a lot has changed and when Tilly returns to London five years later only to find herself trapped in an elevator with the smoldering Italian, it isn’t a happy reunion. Especially because her brother blames Santino for her high tailing it back to Scotland in the first place.

Tilly doesn’t want a replay of past mistakes and reconnecting with Santino is playing with fire.

But if they keep their relationship a secret, it could be worth the burn.



 ARC received from author for an honest review

Here we go - a "sports romance" without a sports star as our lead player.  We are in the sphere of the Harris brothers (Harris Ho and proud here!), with Bethnal Green's lawyer Santino Rossi, and Mac Logan's sister Tillly.

Santino is the man! He is the only other Amy Daws character who has come close to getting anywhere near the dizzying heights of my love for Hayden Clarke #MyHayden.

I loved getting into both our lovelies heads, especially when it came to learning about their past.  

Though I will say I a surprised at some of Santino's actions, as he is such a protector, and I was all "what the eff, man? What are you doing?".  However he redeems himself very well, and that is a good thing, as I didn't want to have to kick his ar$e hahaha

Papa Bear Mac comes across as a bit of a douche at times, but as we learn more of the demons our lovelies have dealt with, it is understandable.  Plus, his lovely lass Freya doesn't let him get away with that crap.

You can't help but need the fiery Italian and stubborn Scot to get through their fights, their worries, their pasts and get their HEA.

Ms Daws has also given us one heck of a set up for the next book in the series. Believe me when I tell you, you are NOT ready for what is to come.

Bring it on!




 She exhales a shaky breath and lifts her lips towards mine. 


I pause a fraction of an inch from her mouth and whisper, “Tilly?” 


“Yes?” her breath stutters as she waits for contact. 


“Are you about to kiss me?” 


“That was the general thought,” she huffs breathlessly. 


I slide my nose along her cheek. “I like that thought.” 


“Then why are we talking?” 


“Because…” I pull back and frown down at her. “I have some rules.” 


Her face contorts, and the mood is killed. “Rules?” 


“Well, just one rule.” 


“What?” she asks, annoyance dripping in her tone. 


I brace myself for her wrath. “We have to be exclusive.” 


“What?” She laughs, her face twisted in confusion. 


I shake my head. “I told you I’ve changed.” 


She blinks back in confusion. “So, what are you asking for exactly? To have me be your next two-month ride?” She chokes out the phrase. “Look, I don’t need to be another one of your two-monthers. I know you’re Mr. Monogamous now, but how do you know that’s what I want?” 


“What do you want?” 


“I don’t know…” 


“Yes, you do.”


“No, I don’t.” 


I step back, giving her some space. “Don’t think about it, just say what you want. Get out of your head.” 


“I can’t get out of my head because that’s when mistakes happen.” She crosses her arms over her chest and begins pacing in front of the table. “After everything I’ve shared with you the past week, you think a relationship with me is a good idea?”


“I think it’s a better idea than kissing you and not knowing when I’ll get to kiss you again.”
