Review Tour - Fourth Down By Kirsten DeMuzio

During the biggest football game of his life, Ford Walsh makes a split second decision that will change his life. For the worse. Three years later, Ford is still stuck in that moment - when his leg was broken and his dreams along with it. Not able to move on, Ford trudges through his life, each day more depressing than the last.

Poppy Mitchell has dreams of being a doctor, and she will work night and day to get there. Sweet, focused, and hard working, Poppy forges ahead when obstacles get in her way. When circumstances bring them together, Ford and Poppy develop an unlikely friendship. As they grow closer, Ford is faced with another fourth down decision. Will he go after his old dreams when given the chance? Will Poppy sacrifice her dreams for his? Or will she let him go?

**This book is recommended for a mature audience, age 18 and older, due to language and explicit content.

My Review

Ford Walsh's mum is suffering from cancer. His friends live a flight away. One game is all it takes for all of his hope and dreams to come crashing down. After a bad tackle Ford is told he won't play football again. 

Poppy Mitchell has worked hard to be where she is to be a doctor. Then she meets Ford. But whose dreams will be put on hold. 

I loved this book. I loved Ford and Poppy. I read it all the way through without stopping. The pace and flow are just right, there nothing I didn't like about this. 

Kirsten does a exceptional job With this. It pulls you in. Its Fantastically written. With a beautiful story. It was heart-warming, and a bit sad. Its refreshing to hear the story from a male pov(point of view). 

Kirsten has done an amazing job with this story, another amazing book. 

I would give this 5/5 stars.
