Catching Cameron (Love and Football, #3)
This was a good story overall, but suffered from being a bit unbelievable as well. I didn't think the sports world would be quite so interested in the fact that Cameron and Zach had been married previously, and that felt more gossipy than anything else. I couldn't feel a good connection between Cameron and Zach themselves, and didn't see much wooing in either side for them to be able to come back together so quickly.
I also didn't care for how quickly the rift between Cameron and her family seem This was a good story overall, but suffered from being a bit unbelievable as well. I also didn't care for how quickly the rift between Cameron and her family seemed to be mended, it happened mostly off "stage", and we don't get many details about it. An entertaining read, but not a great one. In a series full of plot premises that are shaky, to say the least, this one takes the cake.
Two young twenty somethings meet in Las Vegas ten years ago and get married after around ten hours of knowing each other. They spend three apparently amazing days as a married couple, only to suddenly end the marriage after the man apparently takes a cash payout from the woman's father and hits the road.
The two never contact each other again. Now, ten years later, the two are forced to interact when In a series full of plot premises that are shaky, to say the least, this one takes the cake. Now, ten years later, the two are forced to interact when the woman, Cameron, a sports reporter for an ESPNesque network is assigned to be embedded in and cover the training camp for the Seattle Sharks football team where Zach, the man, is a star player.
You would think that a three day marriage to someone you barely knew would register as a really ridiculous and youthful mistake, only to be thought of in your "What in the world was I thinking? But no. Apparently these two fell head over heels in love with each other ten years ago, and they never got over it. Technically, this is not exactly an insta-love story since the "insta" happened ten years earlier, but if you aren't a fan of that sort of story, you aren't going to like this one either. Major beef for me In two of the three stories I have read in this series major plot issues involve a national sports network devoting a HUGE amount of time to discussing the personal lives of NFL players.
If a sports fan were to turn on ESPN and find them devoting an hour long special to who the defensive end for any NFL team was dating I am sure that the channel would be turned in less than a minute. Sure, this is not ESPN exactly, but it is described to be about the same thing. In this story the producers of this network decide to exploit the former and maybe current relationship of these two people for ratings. It doesn't fly for me at all. It's ridiculous. If someone needs a fix of information about the personal lives of celebrities, they aren't headed to ESPN.
They'll check out E! So, I thought the plot was ridiculous. I thought the speed of this relationship was ridiculous. I thought Zach and Cameron's feelings did not ring true at all. If this had happened in real life, I have a hard time seeing things play out as they did. However, having said that, Zach and Cameron were good characters. The story was sweet, and it was a nice HEA ending.
I REALLY appreciated the fact that the two of them talked through their issues together and tried to work through problems rather than running away and hiding But, I'm not continuing on in this series. I can tell that Julie Brannagh's writing style, particular in these sports themed stories doesn't work for me. Still, this one gets three stars from me. May 22, Stephanie G rated it liked it Shelves: reviews-by-ronnie-guest-reviewer. I very much enjoyed her last book, Rushing Amy, so when Catching Cameron was available, I promptly made the request.
Cameron Ondine is a successful sports reporter whom has worked hard to get where she has. When she interviews football player Zach Anderson on her show, things take a turn for the worse when she asks him tough questions about his on field performance, and his off the field love life. When you learn that Cameron and Zach knew each other in the past, and were briefly married, the animosity and disdain that each one has for the other becomes clear.
Cameron has turned away from her rich, snooty family in favor of making a name for herself in the world of sports journalism. She has a hard row, and the book makes it clear that she still has a long way to go before a lot of people take her seriously at her job. I wish I could say more on Zach, but truth be told, he came across as the perfunctory hero.
Rich, good looking, takes care of his family, wants to make a good impression on Cameron even though they left things on an ugly note years ago. The forced proximity between Cameron and Zach causes them to re-evaluate the mistakes and miscommunication that happened between the two of them ten years ago. He does come back and tries again to wield his influence, but both Zach and Cameron are prepared for him this time and send him packing.

She's not thrilled by the opportunity, even more so when by accident everyone finds out about her and Zack's former marriage. Zack on the other hand wants to make amends and see if they can work things out because he still loves Cameron. Zack tries to catch Cameron, meaning recapture her heart. Things are not what they seem regarding the end of their marriage.
At first it seems there is a big miscommunication between these two, but Julie nips that in the bud soon enough. Zack is a sweetheart, and Cameron is a feisty heroine who stands up for herself. Watching these two reconnect is wonderful. Also the one love scene is steamier then the last two books, which establishes how much Zack and Cameron love one another.
I really enjoy the spotlight on Cameron's job and how she navigates the world of sports entertainment as a women who deserves to be taken seriously and treated like the journalist that she is. Catching Cameron gets a big cheer, pom twirling rah-rah hurrah from me.

Catching Cameron was a fun, emotional sports romance read that will be LOVED by sports romance fans and contemporary fans as well. Julie Brannagh does a wonderful job building this story. The elements from the past blend nicely and the sub-plots that develop keep the story moving at a great pace.

I generally liked both Zach and Cameron but was sad we didn't get to see more of how she mended the rift with her parents.
And a bit more on what was really going on with her agent. May 15, Amber rated it it was amazing. I so love this series Overall Rating: 3. I was united with this rocky story from the beginning. The characters are so lovable from the start. I felt enthralled with their story and the way they interacted. This book seemed more like real life, like this story could really happen. Zach Anderson, a veteran professional football player, who came from humble beginnings and a mega ladies man.
Maybe in a way, because all the ladies love him, but Zach is Overall Rating: 3. Maybe in a way, because all the ladies love him, but Zach is a good guy who takes care of his four sisters and grandma. He plays football to help provide for them. Known by millions, but not really, he's in his 30's and longing for that one special person. He didn't realize that love would come back to him, but she walks into his life again and everything comes back, and everything changes Cameron Ondine, a woman from an "old money family" in high society New York.
She wanted more out of life than what her family wanted for her. She wanted to be sports journalist, sports reporter and do it all on her own. So, her desire and drive led her to be one of only a few sports reporters for national football news. Then, a man from her past shows back up and draws her in again. The feelings that never died are driven back to the surface. I loved this story.
It was well written and very entertaining. I felt that it was very true to life and could've happened to any of us. It was a book that made me feel good all over. I loved the fact that even though their crazy, shared past of only a few days, their's was a connection that was meant to be. Overall, I enjoyed the stuffing out of this book!!! Job well done, Julie Would I read other books by this author: Yes! Find this review and more at kimberlyfaye reads. It's been awhile since I've read one of Julie Brannagh's books and I'm not entirely sure why. I really enjoyed the first two books in her Love and Football series, and I had a review copy of this one, but for some reason I'm just now getting to it.
I'm also kicking myself for waiting so long. Catching Cameron is my favorite book in the series so far. I love football. I love romance. I love second chance stories. Catching Cameron gave me all of th Find this review and more at kimberlyfaye reads. Catching Cameron gave me all of these things in one delightful and sexy little package. Cameron and Zach had some fantastic chemistry when they come face-to-face during their interview. Of course, there's also a good bit of tension that I didn't really understand until the whole story came out.
Cameron and Zach were definitely acquainted with each other — quite intimately, as a matter of fact — and share quite a history. But, I'm not going to tell you any more about that. A book has to have a strong female character for me to connect with it. Cameron was definitely strong. She was intelligent and damn good at her job.
It's not easy to be a female sports journalist and Cameron's struggles show this. While I loved Cameron from the start, it took a little time for Zach to grow on me. He was a little too much of a playboy for my liking, but once I got to see the other side of him, the one he's kept hidden since his time with Cameron all those years ago, I was sold. I loved their banter and how their relationship progressed throughout the book.
Catching Cameron was a fun book with a lot of heart. The premise of a female journalist being embedded in a football training camp was just plain fun. My inner feminist was outraged right along with her when they tried to change the show and exploit her personal life. But, at the same time, I loved her interactions with Zach and the other players so much, I loved the idea for my own selfish reasons. Of course, there's some drama, but it wasn't angsty and it was definitely needed to move the story forward. Sports romance fans should definitely check this series out, if they haven't already.
It just keeps getting better and better and I can't wait to start Covering Kendall! I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review. May 22, Melody May What I'm Reading rated it really liked it Shelves: contemporary , edelweiss , romance , sport. I do have have own A Love and Football novel, I just haven't gotten to it. However, I plan to rectify the situation one day. That's okay, because I read Catching Cameron yesterday. I have to say that I did enjoyed the story. Whats not to love I mean the hero is a football player, who doesn't love a football player?
Anyway, Catching Cameron is a second chance love stories. I give up saying that they are my least favorite trope, because every time I find a new one I find myself enjoying the story. Back to my thoughts. Then Zach basically annual the marriage and never gave a reason why. So, Cameron has been holding a grudge on Zach.
Ten years is along time to hold a grudge. They see each other again and basically Cameron just goes off on him in an unprofessional way. She ends up on assignment at the Sharks training camp. While there Cameron and Zach resolve what happen ten years ago and try to rectify the huge misunderstanding that ensued. I personally liked the story, because it's more than just a second chance love story. You have a meddling father who wants his daughter to marry someone like him and bring more power to family.
While Cameron just wants to live her life on her terms. Then you have two people that blame each other for what happen in Vegas, and believed it was the other persons fault. However, when they get reacquainted they realize that there was more that played into the situation. Overall, I enjoyed the two characters, because they had grown up since there first attempt at love. When they first new each other they both had issues.

For instances, Zach was concern for his family and wanted to make sure nothing happen to them and Cameron hadn't learn to standup for herself. They both had to learn to trust one another, because of what happen in the past. By the end of the story, I was happy with the end results. So, if you like football and second chance romance, this might be a read for you.

What is it about athletes that make them fabulous characters in romance? Is it their stamina? Is it because they usually have the body of a God? Or is it because they are so determined on winning and they can put that determination towards other pursuits? I love sports themed romances. Hockey, baseball, football If it has an athlete, I'm in love. Even before starting Catching Cameron, I knew my Kindle was in for a treat.
