Book Description
One wrong step derailed my entire professional tennis career. Fleeing the spotlight, I head to Arbor Cove—the perfect place to focus solely on my recovery.

Helping the woman who threatened me with pepper spray is the last thing I should be doing. I can’t afford to be distracted by thoughts and fantasies that have nothing to do with returning to tennis and everything to do with making Tristan mine.

Especially after learning what being together could cost us both.

One word shattered my world. Because of my parents’ crimes, I’m now the sole guardian of my three siblings.

Desperate for a fresh start away from the public eye, we trade NYC for the quiet town of Arbor Cove. My only priority is putting our lives back together—falling for a world famous athlete is not part of the plan.

Especially knowing Dominic Moreau can’t be mine to keep.

“Do you have any plans for the Fourth of July? There’s a bonfire and barbecue on Brighton Beach with fireworks. Gen and Liam have been begging me to take them. You should meet us there if you’re free,” I say without giving myself a chance to change my mind. A week ago I practically balked at the idea of dinner together in public, now I’m asking him to meet us at an event most of the town probably attends.
“July fourth? Seems random. What’s the occasion?” he asks, looking perfectly confused with a brow arched.
My mouth gapes on a gasp. “Um, America’s Independence Day? And you say you have dual citizenship!”
A slow smile spreads from one corner of his mouth to the other before he breaks into full-on laughter.
“You jerk!” I groan and roll my eyes before reaching over and punching him in the bicep. “I can’t believe I fell for that.”
He rubs his arm, feigning actual injury, but it’s only a second before we’re both smiling and I realize the mood has dramatically lightened. But then, I’m starting to feel that way every time I’m around him. Whether it’s been a stressful day at the gallery or I’m ready to tear my hair out because of one of my siblings, five minutes around Dominic seems to melt away the day’s stress. And I’m not sure that’s a good thing considering he’s only here temporarily, and once he’s gone our lives will certainly never have a reason to overlap.
“I don’t have plans, and I’m probably overdue for a proper American celebration.”
“Well then let’s hope Ellen and Kai invite you to celebrate because my invitation just got revoked,” I counter, proud of myself for keeping a straight face.
“That so? What if I just so happen to show up at the same time and continuously bump into you guys?”
“I’d say you might be turning into a little bit of a stalker so I’m gonna have to cut you loose.”
“Just like that, huh? Ouch.”
I shrug casually. “Somebody’s gotta keep France’s most eligible athlete humble.”

About the Author:

C.R. Ellis is a Texas native who writes contemporary romance novels with plenty of drama and humor, and just enough heat to ignite e-readers and paperbacks everywhere. She can almost always be found attached to her laptop with coffee nearby and her two trusty canine sidekicks by her side. When she’s not writing or plotting, she enjoys going to concerts with her sweet husband, dragging him along to see rom-coms at any theater that serves booze, checking off the next destination on her ever-growing travel bucket list, and trying new recipes.

Her passion for writing stems from her lifelong love of reading, and she often binge-reads entire books in a day. She’s an unapologetic book hoarder, and her paperback collection is rivaled only by her massive shoe collection.

[I received a digital arc for an honest review]

For The Love by C.R. Ellis is a new sports romance that is the right combination between sweet and sexy.

Professional tennis player Dominic is recovering after surgery in a small town in order to take a break from the spotlight. The same small town that Tristan choose to escape to after her world and her reputation was destroyed by her parents crimes. She now works to support her three siblings and the last thing she needs or wants is to be put back into the public eye. Dominic and Tristan become friends and then more but she doesn’t want the spotlight and being seen with her could ruin his reputation plus his stay in Arbor Cove has always been temporary.

Just like that huh? Ouch.I shrug casually. Somebody’s gotta keep France’s most eligible athlete humble.

I always enjoy Ellis’ writing and For The Love did not disappoint. She created a wonderful cast of characters. Dominic is sweet, charming and sexy with his French accent and athletic body. The way he bonds with Tristan’s younger brother warms your heart. Tristan is down to earth, caring, and fun. She has a lot on her shoulder, but she doesn’t let that stop her from creating the perfect balance of being a parent and still a sister to her siblings. Together they made a great little family unit and when they were alone one on one they were both flirty and sweet.

I’m sorry; I just couldn’t spend another minute not knowing what it felt like to kiss you.

For the Love was a pleasant romance filled with sweet family moments, steamy kisses, flirty texts, and dirty video calls. I loved that it wasn’t over the top drama but just enough to create a speed bump for the couple. I’m excited for the future books to come in this series.
