Can she forget the fumbles of her past and open her heart to love?

He breathes football. She shudders at the very mention of the sport.

After a tragedy involving a football player destroyed her family, athletic trainer and graduate student, Cassie moves across the country looking for a fresh start, but a change in financial aid lands her in the middle of her worst nightmare.

Meanwhile, rookie coach Reed worries his dream career will slip away as injuries plague his players and his star receiver teeters on the brink of ineligibility. As the two work together to salvage the season, sparks fly, and Reed must eventually choose between the game and the woman he loves.

Clean & Wholesome Romance

One of my favorite quotes is from the late Larry Burkett who said, “If both of you had everything in common, one of you would be unnecessary.” That’s the fun of reading Catch of a Lifetime. Reed is all about football and Cassie isn’t a fan. But she’s thrust into the sport and has to work with Reed, who wants a winning season and a lasting career. What neither of them count on is the sparks they find with each other.

There’s so much to enjoy about Catch of A Lifetime. I love that she created a football world that even the most uninterested reader can understand and keep turning the pages. The sports aspect is part of the plot but not overwhelming. She created real characters. They have wounds, temptations and personalities to deal with. Finally, the romance is sweet. This is a romance I think older teens could pick up and hand off to their grandmothers and there’s no shame between the pages. That’s a big deal for me.

Whether you’re in the bleachers cheering on your favorite team or sitting on the couch reading while your loved one watches a game, you need to pick up a copy of Catch of a Lifetime. It’s a touchdown.
