“Don’t tell me you hate football.”
A last-minute change in responsibilities lands Cassie Parker a job assisting the university football team, the last place she wants to have to spend her time. Looking for a fresh start, she has just moved to Colorado as a grad student in the Health and Exercise program, but things have started badly for her. She rises, however, to the challenges before her: academic oversight of the players, athletic training, classes, and tutoring. Most importantly, she learns she can’t judge all football players by the poor decisions of one.
Reed Worthington is a first-year football coach, working hard to prove himself in front of the players, coaching staff, and his father. Cassie and Reed soon discover that they have a shared faith and realize that there is an attraction between them. But university football is demanding. Can they overcome the many obstacles to their relationship?
This was a fun, quick read. I loved the football setting, and it was great to watch the characters grow in faith and integrity. I recommend this book, whether or not you are a football fan.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
