Playbook Rule #1: Never ever give up
It's official. The Alabama Warriors have the worst reputation in pro football. As the team's captain, Carson Savage has his ass on the line and - thanks to a leaked photo - his ass is also online. Now the team is getting an image makeover from Sadie Reynolds, the hottest redhead in the South and Carson's high school sweetheart. Maybe making a play for his sexy ex is a risky move... but Carson didn't make it this far by playing it safe.
Alabama is the last place in the world Sadie wants to be. Going home again only reminds her of what - and who - she gave up. Seeing the insanely hot ex she never quite forgot is dangerous. Carson's too sexy. Too tempting. And Sadie can't afford to go out of bounds. So she'll do whatever it takes to finish this job and leave town with her heart still intact. The only problem? Carson's decided it's not about winning the game... it's about winning the girl.
Carson and Sadie dated in high school but Sadie ended it when she was expected to give up her dreams to follow Carson and his dreams. Years later, Carson is a quarterback for his hometown NFL team. While Sadie is a media relations expert and is hired to help Carson's team clean up their public images. But when Carson and Sadie meet again, the sparks still fly and it doesn't take long for a romance to begin.
This is a cute romance story, but I found it very predictable and I just couldn't connect with the characters. Just my personal taste.
