Bryant Garrity isn’t irresistible.
His lengthy resume of Heisman Trophy winner, number one draft pick and highest paid player isn’t all that impressive. The fact his chiseled jaw and mesmerizing blue eyes have probably made him Mr. Popularity from the age of five isn’t going to work on me. Not when I have goals—goals that don’t include finding myself on an all pro-football heartthrobs checklist.
Carly Lincoln is different.
I could go on and on about her dark wavy curls, her pouty pink lips, or her whiskey-on-the-rock eyes that reveal her truest desires. The fact she’s not impressed by my sports superstar aura like most women makes her worth more than a fling. But this year is my last shot at glory after crumbling to a mere mortal on the game’s biggest stage. My focus needs to be on the ring, not turning Carly’s no's to yes's.
Carly and Bryant’s paths are about to collide, and they better be prepared to fight for what matters most because life’s paths aren’t all sunshine and winding roads.

I'm a little late in reviewing and reading this book - but by far, this is one of the best books I have read this year!
I love everything Michelle Lynn writes, she's one of my favorites - but with Detoured by Love she have outdone herself. I was looking forward for another great read, the one that will have my heart beating hard, and my knees weaken but I didn't expect for this book to make me cry. Argh. My heart ached so hard, and I couldn't breathe. The pain, the suffering was palpable, and I do wish that the characters won't be so hard on themselves and choose their HEA despite all the circumstances that were thrown at them. Yes, this isn't your ordinary love story - it might have started out that way: hot-sports super star meets an ordinary beautiful girl and they fell in love.
There is more to it. The story opened my eyes that all of us should choose happiness rather than wallow in our suffering. We should embrace everything good that is happening and present in our lives and choose to live rather than push people and moments away.
There's romance, there's enough steam, and enough drama to put this one on TOP of your reading list, plus an author's note that equally breaks my heart and made me understand how this story means so much to the author.
