City Of Champions (A Gateway To Love Novel) {Book Review}

Title: City Of Champions {A Gateway To Love Novel}

Author: Chloe Barlow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description:

How do you find the will to try, when you've spent all of your life playing on a field strewn with shattered lives and broken rules?

Tragedy and betrayal taught Jenna Sutherland early on that her safest bet was to fiercely avoid any risk, whether it is in work, life, or love. Now a respected orthopedic surgical resident on the cusp of finally breaking through in her career, she's more guarded than ever.

When injured NFL quarterback Wyatt McCoy bulldozes into her life there's no denying he's cocky, selfish, and downright dangerous -- everything Jenna's sworn she doesn't want.

Suddenly the levelheaded doctor finds herself facing down her greatest fear, and she's tempted to gamble all she's fought so hard to build. The two embark on an intense holiday love affair that quickly teeters on obsession, and tempts them both to think they could go all-in on a real future together. Yet Wyatt's desperation to stay on the field -- and out of the operating room -- lures him to take dangerous risks with Jenna's trust.

Will they win at love or lose everything --including their fragile chance at happiness?
My Review:
      If you read my Three Rivers review which is the first book in this series. Than you know how happy I was to be able to review these books. After reading Three Rivers I had high hopes for this book and author Chloe Barlow doesn't disappoint. She's starts City Of Champions off with a bang with Jenna and Wyatt's dry sarcastic sense of humor  towards each other. 

    I loved Jenna's character in Three Rivers. She was such a great and loyal friend to Althea. To drop everything and move to Pittsburgh to help her Althea and help with Althea's son Johnny. Jenna's still a great friend and loyal in this book. And is very independent in her career and knows what she wants. Though she is a little bit stubborn in this book. Though there is one thing in this book that bothers me with Jenna. She likes to keep secrets from people. 

    Hmmmm Wyatt, Wyatt, Wyatt.... Wyatt was kind of a difficult character for me figure out at first. I wasn't sure if I should love him or hate him. He's kinda cocky and definitely self assured. At the same time there were times where it seemed like he only cared about himself. Which of course is understandable. Though he does redeem himself by the end of the book. 

     Again these two, Jenna and Wyatt, have instant chemistry between them. And author Chloe Barlow weaves us through a story that has half truths, lies and friendship. It's nice that she brings back the other characters throughout the story. Did I mention the chemistry between Jenna and Wyatt is off the chart hot!!!!

     I give City of Champions 4.75 Stars Out of 5 Stars and would recommend it. Also if you've read Three Rivers you will enjoy this book. I can't wait to read the next book this series.
            You can purchase City Of Champions on Amazon, B & N, iBooks, and on Kobo.
