Book Review: Slow and Steady Rush by Laura Trentham

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?


I love football and I grew up in a small town, so this book was right up my alley. The chemistry between the two got off to a rocky start, but that's one of the things I loved about this book. The misunderstanding between the two of them carries into a very powerful part of the book that a student of his is struggling with and I really loved the crossover effect that Laura wrote into this story.

A book about coming home and making that ultimate decision to stay or go. Slow and Steady Rush pulled out emotions all over the place for me. The humor and drama kept me interested and wanting to see this book all the way to the end.

I look forward to reading more from this Laura Trentham and it looks like there's more to come for the Falcon Football series this Summer with Caught Up in the Touch.
