He’s her patient. She’s his doctor. They shouldn’t. But God, do they want to.
Camden Harris, the famously hot, hulk of a footballer is laid up in a London hospital. But his busted knee doesn’t stop him from running his well-practiced game on Indie Porter—his redheaded spitfire of a doctor. She’s not his type, not even close. But she could be the perfect distraction from the soul-crushing damage this injury could cost him.
Indie’s tired of her naivety putting a target on her back. As a gifted child, she’s let her education take the front seat her whole life. But a fling with a footballer like Camden might be just what she needs to grab life by the balls.
And he could be the perfect guy for the plan she’s been sitting on for over two years.
But when feelings make a final play, there’s no amount of medicine that can heal the damage to their hearts.
Let me start by saying that I absolutely fell in love with Challenge by Amy Daws! Her characters totally wooed me with their wit and vulnerability and shared such a sweet and passionate romance. The story was lighthearted and fun, definitely sexy, and topped off with her trademark British flair, provided the perfect getaway at just the right time for me. Quite honestly, I really couldn’t be more impressed with her writing!
Camden and Indie were so unique and their names alone fit them to a ‘T’. Their personalities were so quirky with their specks, ‘lists,’ and superstitions. Career-wise, they were both at the top of their game, and their drive and determination was quite impressive. However, I really admired that Camden and Indie both had an almost quiet confidence about themselves. Don’t get me wrong, neither of them would hold back if pushed, but they just weren’t overly showy about it. Their characters were very relatable and realistic, with natural flaws and insecurities of being the best in their careers and dealing with relationships.
Damn, if Camden and Indie weren’t just perfect together!
Although Indie’s innocence was endearing, I really loved how feisty she was in standing her ground and challenging Camden. There was certainly a bit of a dreamy factor for me in Camden, with his inability to resist Indie and how he adored and appreciated her uniqueness. He wasn’t all sappy, but man, his combined tenderness and determination in his pursuit of Indie was more than any girl could ever hope for! There was such a gentle understanding and balance between Camden and Indie, and their dual point of views really showed how well they complemented each other. It seemed as if they gave each other strength and courage at just the right time to help them overcome their obstacles and fears. Camden and Indie’s journey in building their relationship wasn’t always easy, yet their feelings for each other fell into place so naturally, like a real and true love should.
I’m drowning in deep, dark, delicious destiny. I’m in a place I never want to leave. A place I never want to say goodbye to. A place I never want to let go. Just sinking further and further into a world I’ve never known.
Daws completely pulled me into the sporting world of a footballer (English soccer), which I know next to nothing about, and she did a fantastic job of taking me away with her descriptive English setting and language with the loos, blokes, boots, and knickers. I am still trying to sort out why I haven’t heard of warming bars by the shower for towels in America – I want one! She expresses herself so well in her writing with the perfect balance of beautiful and romantic words combined with funny as hell dialogue. The passion of her characters and in the story really stirred a lot of emotion with me, and Camden and Indie’s banter with each other and their dynamics with their friends and family really had me laughing. The whole Harris clan was such a delight, and the family feel of the story got me in all the right places and left me a lot of warm fuzzies in my heart!
I originally sought out Amy Daws writing in preparation for the Bookish Denver author event, and let me tell you, she is truly as fun and lovely in person. Her heartwarming story was such a breath of fresh air to me, and I am really looking forward to reading more about these Harris brothers in Endurance (Harris Brothers #2), which is Tanner’s story, and then Keeper (Harris Brother’s #3), which is Booker’s story and releasing September 7th, 2017!

Thank you for this awesome review!!!
You’re most welcome! This is such a great series! =D
Ah “warming bars” which I just call a hot towel rack… best thing ever. They don’t just heat your bathroom, they heat you’re towel too. My Aunty has this really nice waterfall shower (which is AMAZING) and then a hot towel rack: best experience of my life!
I’m telling you, I TOTALLY need one of these! =D
