Synopsis of the book:
The folks in Last Chance, New Mexico, could not be more pleased. Dr. Jessica MacLeod has opened an office right on Main Street, and Andy Ryan, the best athlete the little town ever produced, has come home from the NFL to coach the high school football team. Unfortunately, Dr. Jess immediately gets off on the wrong foot with this football-obsessed town when she admits that she’s never seen a football game, isn’t really interested in doing so, and in fact doesn’t know a first down from a goalpost.
Despite having little in common, Jess and Andy find themselves drawn to each other. But when a disagreement over the future of an injured player puts them both on the defensive, it begins to look like the game is over…
A nice end to this series. What I liked most was the small town people. Having lived in Texas, I could understand the small town fascination with the hometown football team. I also felt compassion for Coach Andy who didn’t want to be on a pedestal but had trouble keeping the townspeople from trying to put him on one. I really enjoyed his laid back ways and diplomacy in dealing with people.
Jess was a little harder for the townspeople to warm up to and her disdain for their favorite sport didn’t help, but I related to her confusion over the football passion.
The romance was sweet and my favorite characters from the other books in this series were all back to make me feel right at home.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
The people of Last Chance, especially Elizabeth.
What I didn’t like about this book:
The chemistry between Jess and Andy wasn’t real strong.
Would I recommend this book to others? Probably. It is a nice sweet romance and I loved saying goodbye to the recurring characters. This is the fourth and final book in this series. It can be read as a standalone.
