Once Upon A Half-Time…

Lachlan Reed is the Ironfield Rivets’ most-anticipated rookie…and he’s also my biggest mistake. Our three-day Vegas sextravangza is a hazy blur, but seeing him at training camp rings a bell...wedding bells.

As the Rivets’ team photographer, it’s my job to document the players, not marry them. But Lachlan proposes a deal. If we stay married, he promises that I’ll fall madly in love with him by the sunset of our third date.

Good thing I don’t believe in fairy-tales.

But after one night, I’m head-over-heels. Two, and I’m secretly pregnant. Three dates, and he’s either the worst thing that’s ever happened to me…or he’s the only one who can help me save the team from a season-ending league scandal.

A dark secret threatens the Rivets’ organization, and only I can expose it. But when Lachlan struggles in his new position, taking on the coaches will risk both of our careers. If I fail, I’ll lose the love of my life and the perfect father for my secret baby.

Maybe it’s not a fairy-tale romance…

But Lachlan and I will make our own happily-ever-disaster.

I recently read my first Sosie Frost book, so I knew I had to read more of her work. I picked up Once Upon A Half-Time for only 99 cents, and squeezed it in when I was looking for something lighter and fun to read. This was a second chance at love for Lachlan and Elle, as I learned that they hooked up once before and are both fighting the attraction they have for one another.

Elle and Lachlan's first altercation in this book was when she saved his ass and left him in front of the Ironfield Rivets grounds. It was quite amusing to see them interact, but since Elle was dealing with her own issues she left him and fled. Elle was the team photographer and would do whatever she could to protect the team as they were like family to her, and she had a few strong friendships with some of the players. But as they both work for the same team they continued to cross paths and it soon became apparent they had met before, although that time was a little hazy for Elle.

Lachlan was the newest rookie for the Ironfield Rivets and was finding it hard to fit into the team, but being around Elle made it hard too. He knows what he wants, and that's Elle, and he was willing to do anything to win her back.

I liked seeing Lachlan and Elle together, they often bickered and flirted with one another, and the sexual tension between them was off the charts. I could see why they were so good together before and it was going to be a matter of time before they hooked up again. There was a secret between them, that changed everything for Elle, and I loved that Lachlan wanted to get her back.

This was a fun read and I enjoyed watching Lachlan and Elle face each hurdle. I liked that they weren't the conventional couple either, being from different races. But there was no denying that they were great together. Sosie did a fantastic job at weaving their story together, with a little controversy, an intense relationship with plenty of hurdles! I look forward to the next story from this world!
One sweet tease, one funny one!

“I’ve wanted you every minute of every day since you walked out of that hotel room.” His voice lowered, deep and rasping. “I was crazy to let you go, and I’ll be damned if you’ll get away this time. You’re the most beautiful and amazing woman I’ve ever met.”

“Okay, when I go into labor? You aren’t allowed to do anything. I’ll drive us to the hospital, and you do the stupid breathing exercises.”

Sosie Frost is no stranger to quirky, embarrassing, and wild situations, and she’s channeling all that new adult angst into fun romances.

From marching at the high school homecoming game without her trumpet (a punishment for forgetting the instrument on the band bus), to regretfully tucking her prom dress into the back of her tights before pictures, and even accidentally starting a chemical fire in the college chem lab, Sosie has the market cornered on crazy stories.

But hey, writing is a better outlet than therapy right? 😉

If you want funny, charming, and steamy romances, you’ve found the right author!

Sosie lives in Pittsburgh with her hubby, her two cats, and thrives on a near constant stream of gummy bears.
