New York Leopards by Allison Parr

Running Back by Allison Parr
New York Leopards # 2
Running Back is the second addition to the New York Leopards series by Allison Parr.

I love the sports NA genre and I love series, so what’s not to love right.  Although this book meets most of my check list, I didn’t love it.  It was ok, and the writing style was good.  I didn’t really connect with the characters.

The plot was interesting.  The book itself started strong and the fell flat.  I had to power through the middle and the ending picked up again. 

I am going to give this one a solid 3 stars because I loved the first book in this series, and will read the next installment.  Maybe I didn’t get into this book as much is because I am used to this series as a sports theme and this book strayed from the game. 


Natalie Sullivan is on the verge of a breakthrough most archaeology grad students only dream of: discovering a lost city. Her research points to a farm in Ireland, but to excavate she needs permission from the new owner: the Michael O'Connor, popular NFL running back.

On TV Mike seems so charming and good-natured that Natalie figures getting his cooperation will be a breeze. So she's not prepared to deal with the arrogant—and adamantly opposed—man she meets in person. Or the way one look from him sends shivers down her spine…

Determined to kick-start her career, Natalie travels across the Atlantic and finds herself sharing an inn with Mike, who has come to Ireland in search of his roots. She tells herself her interest is strictly professional, but the more she gets to know him, the harder it is to deny her personal attraction to the sexy sports star. And when Mike confides why he refuses to allow the dig, Natalie must decide if she can follow her heart without losing sight of her dreams.
