by J. Nathan (Goodreads Author)
All Andi Parker has ever wanted, all she’s ever dreamed of, is a spot on the Olympic track team. But when an accident leaves her hospitalized with serious injuries and shattered dreams, she’s not only uncertain what her future holds but also completely alone.
Drew Slater is a wanted man. Professional football teams want him for his arm. Women want him for his good looks and magnetic personality. But the well-crafted disguise he wears, the one that helps him score on and off the field, hides secrets. Conceals lies. Threatens the happiness of everyone around him.
One chance encounter brings Andi and Drew together, changing their worlds in ways they never thought possible. Unfortunately, what they thought they knew about themselves—and about each other—might just be the biggest lie of all.

My Since Drew Review ...
After reading J Nathan's debut book Until Alex (which I really liked) getting the chance to read Since Drew I jumped at the chance to review it. In Since Drew it's based on two totally new characters, Andi Parker and Drew Slater.
Andi Parker has had one dream and that's to run in the Olympics.
Drew Slater has had everything come easier to him but it hasn't always been what he truly wanted.
One moment in both of their lives drastically changes everything.
After Andi finds herself in the hospital broken physically and mentally with her dreams shattered she befriends a fellow hospital mate named Drew. The two quickly become close and help push each other to heal and move forward.
When things seem to be moving in the right direction all of a sudden a mind twist happens and makes us doubt everything that has already happened. I had a feeling I knew what was going to happen and why (which I was correct in guessing) but it didn't change my experience in reading it.
Andi's now confused and heartbroken.
Drew's now for the first time feeling something that he has never felt before.... hope.
Two wrongs don't make a right but for these two it sure does. I loved Drew even when he was being an ass. I fell for him right from the get go. Andi was strong and resilient and together they pushed each other, that they couldn't have done without the other.
Thank you J Nathan for something refreshing and new in this very formulaic genre. The story was great. The twist was refreshing. The angst was heartfelt. The bond between the two was solid and strong. The whole thing was great from start to finish.
