But Henry, an overly possessed and back stabbing creep, is making it difficult for them both. He fell in love with Susannah and take every chance he got to help pick up the pieces of her life when it begin to shatters due to her separation with Ryan. Henry would find his way to get into her life and manipulate story against Ryan.
With everything that get thrown in between Ryan and Susannah, the author gave us a insight on trust, loves, second chance, marriage and family. I really like Ryan. He is type of characters I normally don't get to read about too often but is one who I would have like to see more. There alot of love scenes, but most are done in a way that would make you just simply sigh. It made me smiles. I thought that Line of Scrimmage is a refreshing book and also sweet and romantic to read. I really did enjoy it. It really one of those, "Don't Judge the book by it's cover" kind of thing. I think it a novel to read!
