Release Day: April 19

It’s spring, 1970. The Vietnam War has been raging for years with no end in sight. Janey Martin, a California college student and aspiring journalist is tired of writing puff pieces about her university men’s sports teams. She wants to be taken seriously as a journalist and as a woman. With riots at their doorstep, her wealthy father sends Janey to the Sorbonne in Paris to finish her college education away from the chaos.  

Janey is reluctant to leave the Big Story that is Vietnam, but vows to prove herself. Much to her dismay, her first assignment is to interview the hotshot star forward of a local soccer team. Janey is sure Adrien Rousseau is going to be like every other playboy jock she’s ever dealt with, but quickly learns there is much more to Adrien than meets the eye.

The mysterious, sexy footballer just might be the biggest story of Janey’s life.


Rating: 5/5

Emma Scott truly knows how to write romance no matter what the time frame is. I love ONE GOOD MAN. Janey Martin, a California college student was just sent off to Paris by her father after getting herself into trouble covering riots. She was sent to get away from all the chaos back home.

Janey wants to prove herself in a male-dominated world of Journalism. However, her first assignment is to interview the hotshot forward of a local soccer team. Janey was pretty sure that Adrien is like any other jock she met back then, but the more she gets to know him, the more he has proven her wrong.

Adrien is what not I expected. He was so much more, and he had proven himself again and again. He’s selfless and just plain wonderful. Janey, and his family are lucky to have him.

ONE GOOD MAN is short, but everything felt right and complete. It will make you smile, and make your hearts hurt and make you fall in love. I enjoyed reading it - the needed twist and turns and the all the feels.

I reached over and pushed ‘stop’ on Janey’s tape recorder and turned to her. “Saturday then?”
She coughed in surprise.  “What happens Saturday?”
 “We conclude the interview. You need to see a football match firsthand or your article is going to sound like a bunch of amateurish gibberish. You want to be taken seriously?”
She pressed her lips together for a moment. “Yes.”
“So do I. Saturday at noon at Stade Jean-Marc. We’ll finish the interview after.”
“Antoine wants the article in two days,” she said.
“Tell Antoine I said to wait.”
She took another long pull from the lemonade, her pride not letting her say yes to me so quickly. 
Saturday then,” she said. “For the article.”
“Right,” I said, holding her gaze. “For the article.”
She finished off the lemonade and set the glass down. “Thank you very much, Sophie. It was just what I needed.” She gathered her belongings and turned to me. “See you.”
“You have a drop of lemonade on your chin,” I said.
“Where?” Her hand flew to her mouth. “No, I don’t…”
I held out the cocktail napkin with my sketch of her, my brow raised.
Janey dropped her hand from her dry chin, fuming. I expected her to flounce away. But she snatched the napkin out of my hand, dropped it into her bag, and coolly walked away.
I wasn’t in love with her, but in that moment, I knew someday I would be.
