The New York Times bestselling author of Defending Hearts returns to small-town New Hampshire where a substitute football coach and a guidance counselor tackle love. They were the golden boys of fall: Stewart Mills High School s legendary championship football team. Fourteen years later, they re back to relive their glory, save the team and find themselves again . . . Sam Leavitt has two goals when he returns home to Stewart Mills to fill in for Coach McDonnell: to keep the school from finding a permanent replacement while Coach gets back on his feet, and to reconnect with his mother. As substitute coach for the high school football team, Sam must work hard to keep the boys on track, and that means spending time with the sexy guidance counselor he shared a hot night with months ago. Jen Cooper knows what she s looking for, and it s not Sam he wasn t even supposed to come back. She wants a cultured, romantic soul, not some rough-around-the-edges guy with calloused hands and a hard, muscular body. But seeing him every day forces Jen to question what she really wants out of life. And as Sam begins to deal with his past, Jen discovers there s more to him than she imagined.

I like to think of Shannon Stacey's books as my "real life" romances because she tends to deal with very real issues in very real ways. That being said, I love Stacey's books; they are great romances. I didn't like Jen as much as I liked Kelly and Gretchen but she's still a good character. Sam was one of those strong, quiet type of heroes (one of my favorites) and I loved watching him reconnect with more of the town.
