It’s spring, 1970. The Vietnam War has been raging for years with no end in sight. Janey Martin, a California college student and aspiring journalist is tired of writing puff pieces about her university men’s sports teams. She wants to be taken seriously as a journalist and as a woman. With riots at their doorstep, her wealthy father sends Janey to the Sorbonne in Paris to finish her college education away from the chaos.
Janey is reluctant to leave the Big Story that is Vietnam, but vows to prove herself. Much to her dismay, her first assignment is to interview the hotshot star forward of a local soccer team. Janey is sure Adrien Rousseau is going to be like every other playboy jock she’s ever dealt with, but quickly learns there is much more to Adrien than meets the eye.
The mysterious, sexy footballer just might be the biggest story of Janey’s life.
One Good Man is one good little book!
It is always so easy to recommend books from my favorite authors and I’m delighted to support them. However, the ease at which Emma Scott delivers characters and stories that leave me in a puddle of feelings overwhelms me some times. Most times, even.
And now to do it in a little over one hundred pages? I don’t have many words. Despite the lean page count Janey and Adrien’s love story is rich with emotion and compelling characters giving it the weight a full length romance.
If you’re a die-hard Scott fan like me, or looking for a quickie to introduce yourself to this author’s incredible talent, I definitely recommend One Good Man.
