Murray's COMPLETING THE PASS kept my interest from the first page to the last. It was a quick read even with all the football references and flowed smoothly, considering this is the first book in the series that I've read. The main characters of Josh and Carri were multifaceted and had a depth to them, surprising each other as well, even though they'd known each other all their lives.
Josh and Carri prove there is a fine line between love and hate. She calls them frenemies! It was heartwarming to see them get closer, and who else but the matchmaker moms were rooting for them from the sidelines. Josh had a tenderness about him that surprised Carri, and she was more attractive both inside and out than Josh thought possible. They reminisced about growing up together but also had "a-ha" type moments when they realized they each had different memories of some of those times.
Josh's mom and Carri's parents were woven throughout the story. It was sometimes touching and other times heartbreaking to see their interactions. Carri had a life back in Utah, flipping houses and owning rental properties, but didn't know if she'd go back to that life or stay in Santa Fe where she grew up.
There are family and friends, football players, tears and arguments, laughter, get-togethers, loving and love. The epilogue gave a nice glimpse into the future but also tied up the loose ends nicely.
Murray is a new-to-me author, and I look forward to not only reading the first four books in the SANTA FE BOBCATS SERIES--ONE NIGHT WITH THE QUARTERBACK, LOVING HIM OFF THE FIELD, TAKES TWO TO TACKLE and ROMANCING THE RUNNING BACK--but her other contemporary romances as well!
