When it’s glee vs. gridiron, can love level the playing field?
Show choir teacher Tess Johansson loves three things: music, her job, and sharing that passion with her students. But when a school budget crisis forces funding to be pulled from either the sports or music programs, she finds herself going head to head with Jack, the gorgeous new football coach who broke her heart fifteen years ago.
Jack Marshall wants two things: to be closer to his young daughter and to make his mark as a football coach. Taking the new job, with the promise that he’d have time to build a solid team, gave him both. But now he must win the season with a group of boys who aren’t anywhere near ready or he’ll lose everything he’s worked so hard for. Being pitted against Tess, the summer love he never forgot, is like being fourth and long with only seconds on the clock.
On opposing sides of a fierce battle and with everything at stake, Tess and Jack find themselves torn between doing what it takes to win and doing what it takes to be together.
“Captivating and delightful! I rooted for both characters—and I’ll admit it…I swooned.” – USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Diane Alberts
I started this book last night...and I finished this book last night! It was addicting and I simply could not put it down. The characters are engaging and I fell in love with them immediately. The author kept giving you a piece of chocolate and not the whole candy bar and so the pages flew by.

Slick's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
I always worry when I read a new to me author if I’ll enjoy her (or his) work, and I’ll admit I’m kind of choosy about who I read. However, the synopsis of this book sold me on it and I am so glad I asked to review it. Ophelia London... ...more
So..... I really really liked this book! I am usually a little iffy about the Bliss books, but I always like them... I don't know why but I must get amnesia every time I pick a new one up. I am always iffy because I know they don't have the "steamy sexy stuff" in them. Don't get me wrong - they a... ...more

When I saw this new Bliss title, I jumped at the chance to read it. It has my favorite trope – you guessed it – second chances at love. I just can’t resist that one, so as I settled into my seat for the flight back from OKC, I started gobbling up this book. It is a sweet romance, with rapid pacin... ...more
Imm.... eğlenceli... romantik... rekabet dolu... gülümseten... bazen güldüren... çoğunlukla kalbi pır pır ettiren bir kitapmış "Bıraktığın Yerde Bekler mi Aşk?". Böylesine romantik komedi tadında bir kitap beklemiyordum. Diyerek yorumuma başlıyorum :)

This story is a sweet and sexy romance that is clean but not prude. I like a little heat but not the trash and Tess and Jack were steamy enough! The story kept a good pace and you really want to figure out how they overcome their adversity.

Content: Adult Romance but on the cleaner side of Entangled's Bliss line. Implied sex, a couple instances of mild language but nothing graphic or crude. Wish all Bliss titles were like this one. ...more
