eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
Sam Leavitt has returned home to Stewart Mills with one goal: to fill in for Coach McDonnell and lead the high school football team to the championship. He doesn’t have time for distractions or commitments—but he’s unable to resist falling for the sexy guidance counselor he shared a hot night with months ago.
Jen Cooper knows what she’s looking for long-term, and it’s not Sam—even though the night they shared was explosive. Now, with Sam back in town and working by her side, picking up where they left off is too great a temptation to resist. But before long their fun fling is looking like a future together. And as the championship approaches, Sam is faced with a big decision that will either break them apart—or help them find their way home.
Somehow i missed this series. Just happened upon book three and i am glad i did. Sam is the final guy of three former football players that were once on a champion high school team. Each has come back to their hometown and found love except Sam. Sam has been a little resistant. His past has taught him not to trust in love or relationships. Jen Cooper is going to change all that whether he wants her to or not. He doesn't see it coming. It was fun to watch these two stumble their way through a relationship they didn't realize they were having. Jen wants Sam to stay but Sam thinks he has to go. So many past situations play into the way Sam acts and you can see him struggle to make peace with all that while cautiously seeing where his fling with Jen is going. I loved the main characters and the secondaries in this story. Certainly makes me want to go back and get the two previous stories in this series. Shannon Stacey always seems to go a wonderful job with her contemporary stories and this one follows all her previous work. I always love the aha moment when that one stubborn character finally figures out they are in love! A Keeper!
