Money. Fame. Endorsements. Blake Carpenter had it all—before his professional football career spiraled out of control. Determined to rebuild his life, he takes on coaching the high school team in his Colorado hometown. Despite a few fumbles, Blake knows he can lead these boys to victory. As long as he can keep his eyes on the prize and off the team’s distractingly gorgeous physical therapist.
Annabelle Turner knows all about the scandal that cost Blake his NFL career, and she’ll be damned if she’s going to let his mistakes hurt her team. What she doesn’t count on is the intense attraction that turns every heated run-in they have into a wildly erotic competition. Point by point, play by play, kiss by kiss, they try to keep things professional for the good of the team. But when the score is this close—and the passion this fierce—it’s anybody’s game . . .

This was an OK read for me. I’m a pretty big football fan so any book with football in it usually piques my interest. The writing was decent. It was obvious this book was the start of a series as the scene was set for the next few books. We were introduced to a lot of characters and future tensions set for a few of them. I was left wanting more romance with this book. The sexual and emotional tension was off the charts but I never fully felt Blake and Annabelle’s relationship took off; they really just always stay in the tension zone. I also felt like we got more information from the side characters about these MC’s than from the actual MC’s. The tension and back and forth indecision carried on a bit too much for me.
Blake had some residual issues from his injury that were more glossed over than they should have and minimized quite a bit. That was a bit unrealistic for me. He is a bit of a jerk but when he lets his guard down he has the potential to be sweet. Annabelle was a pretty great character and I liked her quite a bit.
I really liked Cameron and Brandon and would be interested in their stories. If the next book is like this one, I’d probably give up on the series after that. I need a bit more romance in my stories.
