Dr. MacLeod is opening a new office right on Main Street, and Andy Ryan has come home from the NFL to coach the high school football team in Last Chance, New Mexico. Andy Ryan is also the best football player that the small town has ever seen so there’s lots of pressure about him bringing back the glory days. Dr. Jess also gets off on bad foot with the town she admits that she’s never seen a football game and that she isn’t really interested in seeing one. Did I mention that this small town loves football?

Jess and Andy find themselves drawn to each other, but what happens when they argue over the future of an injured player?

I didn’t love this book, but I didn’t hate it either. It was well written and the story was interesting. With this aside, I plan on checking out other works by Cathleen Armstrong in the near future. The only thing that kind of bothered me was that the argument was never truly solved. They never actually talked about it. Don’t miss this one.
