Talk about heat on the sidelines - Kate and Danny have it! I enjoyed the smooth writing and the intermix of sports in the story, especially being a former athlete. This book brings to light the unequal situations that face women, including pay differences. Kate is a strong character that you find yourself cheering for throughout the book. A feel-good read for your next weekend getaway!
I really enjoyed this book. I could say it was because both lead characters, Danny McMillan and Kate Snyder are intelligent, attractive, strong-willed people who are very good at what they do. Kate, a top-notch woman's collegiate basketball coach with numerous championships under her belt, and Danny, the new football coach, hired to bring the team stats up from the basement while bringing his reputation up as well. I could say it was because the banter between them is sharp-witted, and that they had no problem standing toe-to-toe, giving as good as they get. I could even say it was because the sparks between them jump off the page. And all of this is very true. But what was even more a draw for me was the fact that neither need to be "fixed." There was no need for a knight in shining armor to ride in and "rescue" the damsel, especially when the lady in question is a 6'2 dynamo quite capable of slaying her own dragons. In a lot of stories the conflict is between the couple themselves, something is lacking, or missing, a hurdle has to be jumped before the couple gets together. In this book the conflict wasn't internal but external. While both Danny and Kate can fight their own battles, as a united front, together they are a force to be reckoned with. Their strengths complimented each other, they didn't intimidate.
