Pete Sebastian is in his forties, divorced, with twin girls in college. He’s lonely and looking to settle down but has yet to find that magic combination. Jo Parker is a career gal who takes on PR responsibilities for the team. For both of them, it’s not so much that they have issues, but rather they have standards, and from that much of the conflict in their relationship arises.
Given Jo’s familiarity with football and their attraction to each other, it should have been a no-brainer, but a few external forces pop up to keep them at loggerheads. I enjoyed the coach’s level-headedness and Jo’s individuality and self-assurance, but oh my word, those teens. Talk about spoiled, entitled daddy’s girls. Whew. If it had been me… Let’s just say, Jo was a saint at several crucial points.
This is a nice, fast read with some locker room tension, insider glances at management, team members acting like high school gossipy boys to lighten a few moments, some hot between the sheets action, and a good job at tying up loose ends by employing plot elements from book #2.
Pete Sebastian, Coach is a solid four star read and I look forward to the next in the series.
