Peek Inside Playing at Love

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. Being pitted against Tess, the summer love he never forgot, is like being fourth and long with only seconds on the clock.

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.

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.

4.5 Stars

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

Loved this fun book! Great characters and the concept was so much fun. I could feel the heat between Tess & Jack, and was cheering for them all the way up to the end. And oh that ending! It had me reading with a big happy smile on my face. ...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 book made me fall in love with Ophelia London. I love football, and I love second chance romance, so I couldn't wait to grab this book. I loved Jack *swoonyeyes* and really liked Tess. I loved their history and the sparks that were flying between them. Playing at Love was fast-pa... ...more

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.
It's a great weekend read that is relatable and believab... ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Ophelia London

USA Today bestselling author Ophelia London was born and raised among the redwood trees in beautiful northern California. Once she was fully educated, she decided to settle in Florida, but her car broke down in Texas and she's lived in Dallas ever since. A cupcake and treadmill aficionado (obviously those things are connected), she spends her time watching arthouse movies and impossibly trashy TV, while living vicariously through the characters in the books she writes. Ophelia is the author of SOMEDAY MAYBE; DEFINITELY, MAYBE IN LOVE; ABBY ROAD; the Perfect Kisses series including: FALLING FOR HER SOLDIER, PLAYING AT LOVE, SPEAKING OF LOVE, and MAKING WAVES; and the upcoming Sugar City series for Entangled's Bliss line. Visit her at ophelialondon.com. But don't call when The Vampire Diaries (or Dawson's Creek) is on.
