Sunny Shelly’s Review: You Had Your Chance, Lee Burrows

USA Today Bestselling Author, Piper Rayne, begins the Kingsmen Football Stars series with an enemies-to-lovers, second chance story set in the world of professional football.

You Had Your Chance, Lee Burrows by Piper Rayne is now live!

Lee f’ing Burrows

The Kingsmen’s star quarterback.

Legendary throwing arm.

Six-pack abs.

Kissable lips.

Oh, but don’t forget, he’s also a lying, heartless egomaniac who broke my heart in college.

It took me years to build myself back up after his deceit, and now I have the dream opportunity to prove myself working as a sports therapist for a professional team.

The hurdle? Or mountain to be more accurate…

The job is with the San Francisco Kingsmen.

Back when I was a naïve college girl, I felt lucky that he even noticed me. Now eight years later, he’d be lucky if I gave him the time of day.

Which I won’t. Not ever.

Some people don’t deserve a second chance and Lee Burrows is one of them.

Now if someone could only tell him that because he’s hell-bent on scoring the winning touchdown and won’t accept that it’s game over for us.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

I have realized there’s a pattern in my last few Piper Rayne reviews: It was a great addition… it was a great close to a series… and now we have You Had Your Chance, Lee Burrows — which was a great start to a new PR series! But there’s a reason why I keep saying that in my reviews because it’s true. These two authors know how to create full, rich characters and a captivating storyline that holds the reader’s attention from start to finish.

My first tease of Lee and Shayna’s story was in Offside With #55 (Hockey Hotties) since Lee and Kane are brothers, and then I fell in love with them as a couple in the novella False Start (originally part of the Ten First Dates anthology). I definitely recommend reading that short story first, because it provides all the backstory about Lee and Shayna’s college romance, and why there is then an eight-year time jump.

Now it’s eight years later, and Shayna has gotten a job as a physical therapist working for the Kingsmen, Lee’s football team. The sizzle between them hasn’t fizzled, but Lee broke her heart and Shayna hasn’t forgotten that. Or fully gotten over it either. The road to reconciliation does not come easily for these two, but it’s a great journey as Shayna and Lee find their way back to one another. Narrators Joe Arden and Callie Dalton did a great job in bringing Lee and Shayna to life, and I have become a big fan of the duet narration!

Having read several of Piper Rayne’s series now, I love finding the Easter Eggs that connect the worlds. I knew the Kingsmen Football series was connected to the Hockey Hotties because of Lee and Kane, but I loved the surprise connection to Jasper and Lennon (Mad About The Banker from the Modern Love series) and look forward to more cameos in the next books of this series. And doing what they do best, Piper Rayne dropped lots of nuggets about the supporting characters, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for Brady and Miles.

So I’ll say it: You Had Your Chance Lee Burrows was such a fun read and a great start to a new Piper Rayne series! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.


Piper Rayne is a USA Today Bestselling Author duo who write “heartwarming humor with a side of sizzle” about families, whether that be blood or found. They both have e-readers full of one-clickable books, they’re married to husbands who drive them to drink, and they’re both chauffeurs to their kids. Most of all, they love hot heroes and quirky heroines who make them laugh, and they hope you do, too!
