Review/Giveaway: "The Most Important Catch" by Jaclyn M Hawkes

 Back Cover Blurb: 
She knew too much, and she’d seen too much. And the police refused to help. Knowing that she was to be the next scheduled death, Kelly Campbell hid under head to toe black leather and a tinted motorcycle helmet and ran for her life.
When the weather turned cold, she turned south. She ended up in North Carolina, home to one of the most famed and eligible NFL football stars in the whole league; only she didn’t know that. She thought he was a businessman. Not being a huge fan, all she knew was that he was incredibly attractive, kind, generous, and that she was safe with him. Or was she?
His brand of fame proved to be all but deadly, but his fame wasn't nearly as lethal as his attraction. He kept her safe and protected. All except her heart.

You can also catch the book trailer.  

My Thoughts: 
This is the first book I have read by Jaclyn M Hawkes.  It was refreshing to read a clean romance with characters that share my faith.  I enjoyed the suspense in the novel, and the quirkiness of the characters.  Both Kelly and Robby, and filled with insecurities and doubts when it came to matters of the heart, but strength and confidence in their faith.  At times Kelly seemed a little too blinded by her insecurities, but I found her believable. And Robby just seemed like the catch every lady dreams about. 

I was hooked before I finished the first chapter, and I found myself wishing for more time to read when I had to take a break.  I was intrigued by the plot line.  The Most Important Catch is a beautiful tale of love, filled with suspense and laughter.

If you'd like to purchase your own copy, you can find it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and the Book Depository.
