Skin in the Game by Jackie Barbosa

Title: Skin in the Game
Author: Jackie Barbosa
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, LLC
ISBN: 9781622667932

Angela Peterson was always the quiet, shy kid growing up in Harper Falls, crushing on the high school quarterback and honing her football strategy skills. Now grown up and coaching the high school team, she’s shocked when that same sexy quarterback returns to Harper Falls asks her back to his hotel room. And then tries to steal her job.

Injured NFL quarterback Cade Reynolds is in Harper Falls to take over as interim head coach, and he never thought the tall, blond bombshell he propositioned would offer up any resistance. Not to a repeat of the amazingly wild night they shared and certainly not to his coaching position. 
But the Harper Falls High Eagles are Angie’s team, and even the hometown hero won’t take that away from her, no matter how hot he is. As the two engage in a battle of wits and wills, this is one game neither is prepared to lose.

I love stories where the women are the go to characters for sports!This story was sweet and well written! I really liked not only the characters but I really liked the community feeling in the book. The feeling you only get from a small town!

It was great to see how the characters, both major and minor, lives were wound together coming around full circle. It was a terrific story about following your dreams and altering them when the time was appropriate. Cade and Angela were a great couple, and I loved the dynamic between the two especially when they were coaching the high school football team. It didn't matter that Cade was the NFL player, Angela had the brains and the love of football. 

All in all, if your looking for a good story with a twist I would definitely read Skin in the Game! It's worth picking up! You won't regret it!
