Over My Brother’s Dead Body, Chase Andrews by Piper Rayne: After her fiancé broke off their engagement for another woman, Twyla needed to get away from her small town and the town gossip. With her brother living in San Francisco and playing football for the Kingsmen, she goes there to stay for a few months with a job condo/pet-sitting. Only she discovers her next-door neighbor is her brother’s teammate, Chase Andrews, who she has always had a slight crush on.

While spending time with him, she starts to see below his grumpy exterior. But Twyla’s already had her heart broken once so can she risk falling for the grumpy man who doesn’t do relationships?

“Because you’re like the sun – you bring life to anything you give your attention to. People open up, want more of you, like flowers turning toward the sun for sunlight…”

Professional football player Chase was not a people person, but Twyla proved to be the exception. He had been attracted to her for years but felt he wasn’t good enough for her. She was so outgoing and cheerful while he liked his solitude. Besides Miles, her brother, was his best friend and he was overly protective of her. But having her for a neighbor and seeing her all the time wore down his resolve to stay away from her.

“I think inside here, there’s a real softy.”
“It’s just you, Twyla. You bring it out of me.”

Over My Brother’s Dead Body, Chase Andrews is the third book in the Kingsmen Football Stars series. While it can be read as a standalone, I found myself going to the first two books in the series and reading them first. I loved Chase in the previous books and was so happy to see him get his own story. He was the opposite of Twyla’s sunshiny nature, but he found himself wanting a future and spending time with her. Chase and Twyla were an adorable couple, and I really enjoyed this book. So far it is my favorite and it led us straight into the next book which will be Miles. I cannot wait for his and Bryce’s book. They have been circling each other since the first book so it should be very entertaining.

Chase Andrews.

The Kingsmen’s top tight end.
My brother’s friend and teammate.
My new neighbor.
The grumpy to my sunshine.

But underneath that grumpy exterior, there’s so much more.

Chase likes to pretend nothing affects him, but I’ve seen glimpses of his other side in the time we’ve spent together.

And the more we get to know each other, the more I’m falling for him.

Under normal circumstances, this would be great. Except my hyper-protective big brother thinks no man is good enough for me, and my ex-fiancé is trying to win me back.

One charming, seemingly good man already broke my heart. Am I stupid to give a self-confessed relationship-adverse football player a chance to break it a second time?
