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.

This was my first Kara Sheridan read. I confess, it was the cover and title that caught my attention. I don’t like really read books with a sports aspect to them but this one was interesting! While I admit to struggling through the first half of the book, the last half pulled me in and ended with a touchdown.
The main characters were high school sweethearts and Carson was on track to play professionally. He had plans for Sadie to follow him to college, then marry him after graduation; not taking into account what she wanted to do. Sadie decided that she didn’t want this and broke up with him right after high school graduation and moved north for college. She returns to Alabama reluctantly to help Carson and his teammates remake their images. Of course, Carson decides he wants her back and works on winning her.
It is sweet, sexy and emotional with great dynamics between the characters. Pretty good. If you like second chance romances then you’ll probably enjoy this!
