Callie Daniels is a singular sensation. She owns and operates her own bakery, contributes to a popular lifestyle blog, and is the dance team coach at a local high school. She lives by her own design and is much too busy to consider dating. Mr. Right will have to fit into her life when the time is right...
UNLESS YOU'RE PLAYING FOR KEEPS
Football coach Bennett Clark always plays by the rules. He knows that his new colleague Callie is off limits but she's so beautiful-and irritating!-that Bennett can't get her off his mind. She wants him to participate in a charity dance contest, and won't take no for an answer. Soon, what begins as a festive athletic endeavor turns into a heated flirtation on and off the dance floor. Could it be that the free-spirited Callie has finally found a way through Coach Clark's line of defense?
ReviewI am LOVING this series! This is the second book in the Hearts and Craft series by Nicole Michaels. Isn't that just the cutest name for a book series, especially one about a blog that three friends run?!
Callie runs the local bakery, is the high school dance coach and contributes to a blog with two other friends in town. Bennett is a former NFL star that took up coaching High School football after an injury took him out of the game. They both have pasts they're hiding from each other, but will the outcome be worth letting the other see their true selves?
I'm from a small town and even though we weren't the greatest football team, you could find the whole town at the field on Friday nights. We never had a romance blossom between a dance of cheer coach and the football coach, but I love the premise and Miller does a great job putting these two together.
When the coach and dance teacher are asked to take part in a fundraiser, there's some hesitation from the former NFL player but after finding out he can help some of his graduating seniors he agrees. The sparks fly on and off the practice floor between these two do-gooders.
All of the outside influences at play in their love story were great additions. Callie's bakery, the way the town gets involved when there is a tragedy and just the feel of Fall in the air really got me psyched for Fall Football in general.
This is a stand alone, but if you're interested in reading the series as a whole I would encourage you to check out Start Me Up for Anne and Mike's story.
I'm very much looking forward to the next book in this series, Draw Me Close, due March 2016 which involves Lindsey and Derek who had a rather interesting run in and back story discovered in Win Me Over.
