When Avery Stone learns her dad will be fired if his high school team doesn’t make the playoffs, she has to get her head out of her day planner and do something—anything—to help him win. Even if it means secretly coaching the team’s newest player, who seems to have more game than skill.

Lucas Black just transferred to Hillside with a fake name and a big secret. The MVP of every team he’d played on since he was seven—not to mention the MVP of every post-game party—he can’t understand why since arriving at Hillside, he’s been unable to catch a single. Freaking. Ball.

Until…Avery. Amazing, kind, generous, and crazy-freaking-hot Avery.

As Lucas goes from zero back to hero and Avery struggles with just what Lucas means to her, she inadvertently sets them on a collision course with Lucas’s secret…a secret that could take down not only Lucas but her father too.


“I didn’t see this story coming…This is well written and both characters are interesting.” – D.M. Duncan, Goodreads

The Love Playbook by Suze Winegardner is a lovely young adult romance that is sure to take you away to high school and that sexy football player who everyone loves. This swoon-worthy read is sure to keep you up at night turning the pages as quickly as possible.” –Lovely Loveday

“A touching story about the power of love, family, and friendship, when it comes to recovering from great losses.” – We Live and Breathe Books

“It had me at the edge of my seat waiting for the ball to drop (HA!).” – Yahaira, NetGalley

“I LOVED this book. I’m a sucker for a football love story. I can’t tell you why but it’s true. I loved Avery’s character and how strong of a person she is. Lucas was perfect, I loved how he cared about Lexi when she had had too much to drink. It’s really important to me that he felt that way. This is a perfect feel-good story.” – Brooke, NetGalley

“The story is about football, about a small-town community, about a boy who is treated badly, and about a girl still grieving the loss of her mum. It has depth and we see that life is messy and complicated. These factors lifts it above a simple romance novel where the angst is often superficial and quick to overcome. Recommended to lovers of teen romance novels, and who love their boys hot yet supportive, and their girls clever and bossy. I enjoyed it a lot.” –Trish Talks Texts

Avery's family was still recovering from her mother's sudden death, when she learned her father's job was on the line. She wasn't sure how to guarantee his football team made the playoffs, but she knew they had a better chance with Lucas on the team.
