“Kathryn Shay scored the winning touchdown with this sweet tale of love.” The Best Reviews

When the Buckland Bulls professional football team sets up their summer training camp at Beckett College, former linebacker, Mike “The King” Kingston, now a celebrity coach, upsets Dr. Jacelyn Ross’ academic life. First he mistakes her for a student where, in reality, she heads the business department. Then he accuses her of a being a biased, stuffy teacher. But when he muscles his way into her personal life, and worse, falls for her, Jacelyn experiences a totally different kind of emotion. Faced with accusations of professional misbehavior and acting like a groupie, Jacelyn won’t admit she likes the rugged coach and eventually that she’s fallen in love with him. Because they can’t avoid contact, tension mounts. Based on the football training camp of the Buffalo Bills at a college in upstate New York (where the author did extensive research), PLAYING FOR KEEPS combines real life conflict with a fictional love story that will knock your socks off.
