She lives by the book—and is still searching for her happily ever after. 

Darcy Wilde has tried hard not to live up to her last name. As a librarian in Atlanta she lives a fine life far away from the football-obsessed town of her childhood. But when her beloved Grandmother needs help, Darcy takes a leave of absence and heads back to the home and past she left behind.

He knows how to play the field—and is in no rush to settle down. 

Robbie Dalton knows a thing or two about painful pasts. After bouncing around in foster care and the Army for years he is finally ready to move on and make a home for himself in Falcon, Alabama as the newest high school football coach. Sparks fly when the sexy new coach and the sharp-tongued librarian meet, but neither of them is looking to make ties.

But when it comes to love, sometimes you’ve gotta throw away the rule book to cross the finish line… 

Everything changes when Darcy falls in love, not only with the gruff, protective, and smoking hot man who's sharing her days and nights, but also with the complex tapestry of people who weave Falcon together. Could this be where she belongs - and who she belongs with?



This is my first book Laura Trentham That I read. I loved the blurb so I figured why not. I appreciated the story and the characters. I think my rating is a bit harsh sorry but I struggled to get used to the way the story was written. The sequence of actions that did not provide consistency to the story for me. The characters are very endearing. Darcy's smart, funny and awkard sometimes. She left her hometown in Alabama to escape his past. She returns there to care for Ada, her sick grandmother. Robbie meanwhile is the new coach of the football team, former military, with a difficult past. The attraction between Robbie and Darcy is immediate. To silence the rumors of Robbie's homosexuality, due to Darcy, they decided to pretend dating ... but reality will join the fiction ... The story is rather interesting, funny (the fridge moment) and sad. You could read this book easily and quickly .. I gonna read the 2nd without any doubt.
