It's the most anticipated sporting even of the year: PUPPY FOOTBALL! But this year things get a little complicated when:
•The hottest professional quarterback in Seattle goes toe-to-toe with
•A determined production assistant of the yearly Puppy Cup and
•Her adorably bumbling pack of puppies
•In a showdown that'll leave everyone happy ever after.
As a production assistant for the Puppy Cup, Hailey Lincoln knows all things puppies and football. She also knows all things Cole Bennett, star quarterback for the Seattle Lumberjacks and sexiest man alive. But years spent cheering for Cole from the sidelines never prepared her to meet his famous winning grin—or his unexpected plea for help.
Cole's entire life revolves around football, but that's not the future he wants. He's in a bind: if he leaves the spotlight, he risks disappointing his team, his fans, and his incredibly tight-knit family. He needs a bit of good PR to help him out, and Hailey (and her puppies) are perfect for the job.
But winning at puppy football is only the start. If Hailey really wants to win—the game, the man, and the family she never thought could be hers—she needs to pull out all the stops. And Cole, who's spent his entire life playing a game, has to realize that losing football isn't nearly as catastrophic as losing the woman he loves.
"AS APPEALING AS A PUPPY."—Publishers Weekly STARRED for Puppy Christmas
A fun read
What a fantastic read about two of my favorite topics football and puppies. This book is centered around Hailey, the production assistant to the Puppy Cup and Cole, the current quarterback for the Seattle Lumberjacks. Hailey fosters dogs and right now she is fostering a pregnant Golden Retriever, Bess. When Cole visits the offices, Jasmine, Hailey’s boss, sends Hailey out with Cole. They get stuck in elevator and Cole injures his bad shoulder prying the doors apart to get help for Bess, who’s having difficulty delivering her puppies. Cole hopes Hailey can help him with the Kickoff Cup Curse, since she has such success with the Puppy Cup. What you should know is that Hailey’s dad, who adopted her, was a huge Lumberjacks fan and she knows a lot about the team players and isn’t afraid to share her opinions, lol, good or bad. I won’t leave any spoilers, but if you’re looking for a fantastic read about family, by blood or through friendship, you will enjoy reading about these amazing characters.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley and this is my voluntary and honest review.
