City of Champions (A Gateway to Love, #2)City of Champions by Chloe T. Barlow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a powerful read which covers an emotive subject. It starts extremely painfully and had me sobbing during the prologue but the story as a whole is amazing and focuses on a passion for life, love and happiness.

The story covers the lives of Jenna and Wyatt, a QB and someone Jenna has been following closely during his career. Now struggling with a shoulder injury, Wyatt must reevaluate his priorities. Does he risk surgery and his career or does he find alternatives and hope they his team will support his decision but will they be able to continue to accept his reluctance to commit his heart to the game.

After an impromptu meeting, Jenna and Wyatt soon feel a mutual attraction but Jenna has been hurt before, badly, by someone who used her to impress her father, the coach of her High School football team. Wyatt knows he needs to get Jenna on side to convince his team that surgery isn't necessary but will he be able to convince her of his hopes and dreams both on and off the field.

The story continues with Wyatt and Jenna accepting their feelings for one another and whilst happily spending time together, Jenna is facing another battle and one she's not ready to share with Wyatt, her friends or even her father.

This is a brilliant book and one which pulls on your heart strings throughout the story. Every time you think this amazing couple look to be finding happiness, life knocks them back. Can Jenna trust her heart not to be broken again? Can she overcome the biggest battle of her life so far? Will Wyatt get to keep his team place without affecting Jenna or her career? You'll have to read the book to find out!

Next up in this series is Claudia and Trey's story, I can't wait!!!
