[Review + Release Day] YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE, LEE BURROWS (Kingsmen Football Stars, #1) by Piper Rayne

 Source: Received an egalley to participate in the blog tour.
Release Date: December 27, 2022


USA Today Bestselling Author, Piper Rayne, begins the Kingsmen Football Stars series with an enemies-to-lovers, second chance story set in the world of professional football.

You Had Your Chance, Lee Burrows by Piper Rayne is now live!

Lee f’ing Burrows
The Kingsmen’s star quarterback.
Legendary throwing arm.
Six-pack abs.
Kissable lips. 

Oh, but don’t forget, he’s also a lying, heartless egomaniac who broke my heart in college. 

It took me years to build myself back up after his deceit, and now I have the dream opportunity to prove myself working as a sports therapist for a professional team. 

The hurdle? Or mountain to be more accurate…
The job is with the San Francisco Kingsmen. 

Back when I was a na├»ve college girl, I felt lucky that he even noticed me. Now eight years later, he’d be lucky if I gave him the time of day. 

Which I won’t. Not ever. 

Some people don’t deserve a second chance and Lee Burrows is one of them. 

Now if someone could only tell him that because he’s hell-bent on scoring the winning touchdown and won’t accept that it’s game over for us.

I was a bit sad when Piper and Rayne's Hockey Hotties series wrapped up recently, but I always look forward to what they come up with next, so I was eager to start their new Kingsmen Football Stars series! I was even more excited when I saw that the series started off with Lee Burrows since we were introduced to him in his brother Kane's book, OFFSIDE WITH #55. I recently read the free novella that introduces this new series to us, FALSE STARTS, so I was very eager to see what would happen to Lee and Shayna in YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE, LEE BURROWS and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Lee and Shayna were both excellent characters—I loved their passion and I really enjoyed seeing how their romance played out, especially after FALSE STARTS as that showed us what happened to them before they got their second chance here. Lee and Shayna had excellent chemistry and I was so happy to see them come together. The only thing that kept me from loving YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE, LEE BURROWS was that it felt like it relied a bit too heavily on the fact that the two characters already loved each other in their past relationship, and I felt like that was explored more in the novella, FALSE STARTS, than it was in the actual book. I did thoroughly enjoy their romance though and thought it was lovely...just wish we got a few more falling in love-type moments rather than just steamy ones (which I'll be honest is rare for me to say haha).
One of my favourite parts about companion series like this one is that we get a whole cast of characters that we'll see over and over again. I loved the introduction that we got to some of Lee's teammates here and to some of the other side characters! I'm looking forward to Brady and Chase's books..and I'm hoping we get a story for Miles, too!!!! I'm also excited that we'll get to see Lee and Shayna in future books. :)

Overall, I thought that YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE, LEE BURROWS was a great start to a new series and I'm excited to see where it goes! As usual with Piper and Rayne's books, it was sweet and steamy, and kept me very entertained! I'd recommend this one to fans of contemporary romance, especially if you like sports romances with footballI do recommend that you pick up the free novella, FALSE STARTS, first though!

Star Rating: ★★★.5 to ★★★★
