Review – Hail Mary by Nicola Rendell 

Annnnnnd the crowd goes WILD! The crowd being me because I’ve finished Hail Mary and I think I’m having some pretty big feelings for this book. 

Nicola Rendell has once again taken romance and BLOWN IT UP. She has once again put a spin on everything we know and love and made it better. More intense. More passionate. Just MORE. Nicola is an enigma. I have no idea where she sprung from back when she released Professed but HOLY WOW this woman is a writing goddess and I’ll happily bathe in all her wordy magic. Nicola is a true diamond and story telling GENIUS. I honestly don’t have enough praise for the woman. She gets it ALL. I instantly fell in love with Hail Mary. It immediately became one of my top reads of 2016 and I COULD NOT put it down. It infiltrated itself so bloody deep. From the indestructible sexual tension that just BLEEDS from this book, to the breathtaking romance, to the devastation that pulled at my heartstrings, I was 100% IN. Nothing was going to stop me devouring this book. Even Frankie Knuckles has wedged himself into my heart.


Jimmy Falconi, ruthless, raw and powerful but so damn passionate and beautiful. The man made me all tingly. He sent my emotions CRAZY. I was ALL over this beautiful specimen. He rendered me speechless, left me breathless and made my heart skip a beat. 

And Mary. OMG! High five Nicola Rendell. You wrote one amazing, sassy heroine that I would LOVE to be besties with. 

From beginning to end Hail Mary oozed beauty and passion. Five stars just doesn’t cut it.. this was the touchdown of all touchdowns!!

A funny, naughty, dirty *standalone* sports romance…

At a boxing gym in Chicago, Mary Monahan accidentally knocks out the most handsome man she’s ever met. After she wakes him up with a few slaps and some smelling salts, the very first thing he does is ask her out for ribs and beer. His name is Jimmy. He looks like a Gillette model. And he’s just too hunky to resist.

Jimmy “The Falcon” Falconi is mystified that Mary has absolutely no idea who he is. Mystified and refreshed. He is, after all, not your everyday NFL quarterback. He shops at Costco, has a soft spot for Pinterest, and is in the midst of an epic losing streak.

Jimmy falls for Mary fast and hard, the way he does everything—balls out and like it’s fourth and long. And he realizes he’s finally met his match. That stamina he’s so proud of? Doesn’t stand a chance against her Kegels.

But what they don’t know is she’s also his new physical therapist, recently hired by the Bears to work on his rotator cuff…and groin injury. If she can’t help him, he’ll be traded faster than they can say “offensive penetration.”

In spite of the thousands of internet memes featuring Jimmy’s face with captions like: “HEY GIRL, WANT TO TOUCH MY BALLS?” Mary finds herself falling for him and his unrelenting desire to make her his.

Until a toddler shows up at Jimmy’s door.

And throws their lives into total chaos.

To the reader: Sweet. Safe. HEA. This is a comedy that gets very dirty, so be advised. Other tasters’ notes: Hints of honey and champagne. And a feisty little dog named Frankie Knuckles.
