Playing at Love ReviewPosted on the 29 November 2012 by Lifeofasportswife @jessaolson
The book starts on the first day of school at an all teacher conference. The superindentent announces the last one messed up the budget, and they have to make cutbacks. The two departments up for cuts: Drama vs. Football. (You weren't expecting that were you?) haha They have until Homecoming to prove which department should stay.
In the book the 2 main characters are obviously the choir teacher, Tess, and the football coach, Jack. Tess is a choir teacher at the school she grew up. Jack is the new head football coach. The twist is when they were younger they vacationed in the same spot. I'm not going to give too much away because I think it's a great book to get, but Tess blames him for a lot of things.
As the book continues it tells about each weeks competition. The choir performs at half time with their big competition right around Homecoming. The football team must win more games than the lost. There is a local reporter who write a non bias review each week. Think of it kinda like a scoreboard on who's in the lead. This slightly tears the town apart, and includes jokes on each side.
Even though they are competing against each other they start to date again. They try to keep it a secret, but towards the end of the book everyone finds out. As predicted it comes down to the last game. If the football wins they stay. If the choir gets first place they win. I'm not going to tell you who wins because I don't want to ruin it for you, but it's good.
This book is Book 1 in the Perfect Kisses series. Playing at Love was written by Ophelia London. I can't wait to check out the rest of series to see what happens next with Jack and Tess.
