According to FTC guidelines I am required to disclose that I received this book from bookfun.org and the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
If you enjoy football and romance, I think you will enjoy this book. Personally, I know just about zilch about football, so keeping up with the football jargon, plays, etc was a bit challenging for me. Nonetheless, it did not take away from enjoying the book.
Once I got past the first few chapters, I got into the story and enjoyed seeing how it played out. Cassie has just recently changed schools due to tragic circumstances surrounding her previous school. She also hates football, well, maybe not the sport exactly, but certainly those egotistical guys playing on the field, who think they are "all that". But God has plans for Cassie, and they can only be fulfilled if she is willing to surrender her will to His, as well as, take a few chances. There is also that five-letter word, that holds a huge punch - TRUST. And that is something Cassie struggles with.
First day on the job, Cassie meets Reed, rookie coach, struggling to find his worth and value apart from what his family thinks of his career choice. A man with a deep relationship with God and great values, but also a man whose life is surrounded by football, and football players. Even after Cassie gets to know him, can she let her fears go?
This book is about love, trust, forgiveness, and so much more. I really enjoyed how Candee weaves together the story along with the faith of those involved. Pretty much it is a predictable read, just a steady paced enjoyable book. There is a bit of a twist towards the end, that adds a bit of excitement and it contains a meaningful ending.
This is the first book I have read by Candee and aside from my cluelessness about football, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
