"The Game of Love" by Jeanette Murray

My Book Summary : Christina (Chris) has just started a new job as a high school math teacher and the girl's tennis coach, making plans to start a new life. And with her past behind her she can finally move on .... right?

When Chris meets Brett, the high school football coach, for the first time she already knows she wants nothing to do with him. Especially since after her first few times talking with him he seems arrogant and selfish, not to mention that he used to be a pro athlete--which is already a major red mark against him. However, for Brett, after getting to know Chris a bit, he'll do his best to prove to her that he's the guy for her.

Now, after a while of spending time together, and complying to their attraction for each other, Brett will have to prove to Chris that what they have is more then just an affair. But will Chris agree or be ready to take that next step??

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, it was a cute/sweet novel but I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have. I mean the main characters were good and the plot was okay, but around 2/3s of the way in it was just WAY to dragged out. I got really annoyed with Chris. I mean I could understand her motives but I just felt like shaking her at some points. I did love the secondary characters, the last chapter and epilogue though, those redeemed the book for me.

I recommend it for those who want a light read that's a romance too.

Author Book Trailers :

Book Teaser(s) :
“What the hell was that?” The kid wasn’t even watching the damn ball. Tossing his clipboard down, he crossed the field. As the grass crunched beneath his Nikes, he noticed that one by one, his team’s heads were turning. And they weren’t looking his way.
Following their line of vision, he found the distraction. The damn tennis team, running the perimeter of the football field in some half-assed formation, following their fearless leader. They weren’t looking at the field, weren’t yelling or causing a scene. Just concentrating on keeping up with Chris. ~ within Chapter 7
