Skin in the Game - Jackie Barbosa

The Book
Release Date: 27 May 2013

Angela Peterson was always the quiet, shy kid growing up in Harper Falls, crushing on the high school quarterback and honing her football strategy skills. Now grown up and coaching the high school team, she’s shocked when that same sexy quarterback returns to Harper Falls asks her back to his hotel room. And then tries to steal her job.

Injured NFL quarterback Cade Reynolds is in Harper Falls to take over as interim head coach, and he never thought the tall, blond bombshell he propositioned would offer up any resistance. Not to a repeat of the amazingly wild night they shared and certainly not to his coaching position. 

But the Harper Falls High Eagles are Angie’s team, and even the hometown hero won’t take that away from her, no matter how hot he is. As the two engage in a battle of wits and wills, this is one game neither is prepared to lose.

My Opinion  4 STARS
**Provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review**

Ok... so in this book we have the previously shy geeky kid who has now turned into the Red wine drinking, soccer loving, math teacher that has turned until the preverbal swan. Then we have the former school star quarterback who made it big but is currently in-between jobs due to an injury. 

Of course the couple have problems to overcome, hot sex (a must in these types of books) and a man intent on causing our swan trouble.

Although the story is sweet, its nothing to write home about and the ending feels a little too rushed. But it does leave a great opening for another book in the series with another couple.

The book is not that long and didn't take too long to read (i read it in less than a day).

Altogether a sweet short story.
