She lives by the book—and is still searching for her happily ever after.

Darcy Wilde has tried hard not to live up to her last name. As a librarian in Atlanta she lives a fine life far away from the football-obsessed town of her childhood. But when her beloved Grandmother needs help, Darcy takes a leave of absence and heads back to the home and past she left behind.

He knows how to play the field—and is in no rush to settle down.

Robbie Dalton knows a thing or two about painful pasts. After bouncing around in foster care and the Army for years he is finally ready to move on and make a home for himself in Falcon, Alabama as the newest high school football coach. Sparks fly when the sexy new coach and the sharp-tongued librarian meet, but neither of them is looking to make ties.

But when it comes to love, sometimes you’ve gotta throw away the rule book to cross the finish line…

Everything changes when Darcy falls in love, not only with the gruff, protective, and smoking hot man who's sharing her days and nights, but also with the complex tapestry of people who weave Falcon together. Could this be where she belongs - and who she belongs with?

Kassiah: I love small-town romances and I really love football (hello, Tim Riggins!), so I was very excited to pick up Slow and Steady Rush, the first book in Laura Trentham’s Falcon Football series. I absolutely loved the dynamic between Darcy and Robbie (Dalt) and that there wasn’t instalove here. After they get going, though, it’s as adorable as you would expect the high school football coach falling for a librarian would be. I loved how multi-dimensional these characters were and the storyline wasn’t contrived. Yes, it was predictable, but I loved it!

Slow and Steady Rush is a great choice for all small-town romance fans, and I can’t wait for Logan’s story–I’m really hoping that his is next!
