When the competition's this hot, someone's bound to score.

Angela Peterson was always the quiet, shy kid growing up in Harper Falls, crushing on the high school quarterback and honing her football strategy skills. Now grown up and coaching the high school team, she’s shocked when that same sexy quarterback returns to Harper Falls asks her back to his hotel room. And then tries to steal her job.

Injured NFL quarterback Cade Reynolds is in Harper Falls to take over as interim head coach, and he never thought the tall, blond bombshell he propositioned would offer up any resistance. Not to a repeat of the amazingly wild night they shared and certainly not to his coaching position.

But the Harper Falls High Eagles are Angie’s team, and even the hometown hero won’t take that away from her, no matter how hot he is. As the two engage in a battle of wits and wills, this is one game neither is prepared to lose.

Kassiah: I love football and I love Brazen books, so picking this one up was a no-brainer for me.

Injured NFL quarterback Cade Reynolds is back in his hometown, planning to take over as head coach for his high school football team. Trouble is math teacher Angie is already filling in for the current ailing head coach and she wants the position. Add to that, they’ve seen each other before–they recently shared a night of passion where Angie left the following morning because she didn’t want Cade to remember they knew each other in high school. How will these two find love when they’re both after the same thing?

I liked these characters and really loved the premise for this story. There were fun sexy times and thought the drama was a little over-the-top, but that didn’t detract from the hotness 🙂 Angie was fierce and definitely relatable and Cade was hot and sweet and swoon-worthy. And I seriously loved all of the football stuff going on. #win

If you’re in the market for a swoony football player and a girl who isn’t a doormat, then check out Skin in the Game by Jackie Barbosa.
