Money. Fame. Endorsements. Blake Carpenter had it all—before his professional football career spiraled out of control. Determined to rebuild his life, he takes on coaching the high school team in his Colorado hometown. Despite a few fumbles, Blake knows he can lead these boys to victory. As long as he can keep his eyes on the prize and off the team's distractingly gorgeous physical therapist.
Annabelle Turner knows all about the scandal that cost Blake his NFL career, and she'll be damned if she's going to let his mistakes hurt her team. What she doesn't count on is the intense attraction that turns every heated run-in they have into a wildly erotic competition. Point by point, play by play, kiss by kiss, they try to keep things professional for the good of the team. But when the score is this close—and the passion this fierce—it's anybody's game . . .

Winner Takes All tells the story of Blake, a retired and disgraced NFL player, and the headstrong woman, Annabelle, that he tries to push away. As his hometowns new High School Football couch he already has enough to deal with, so the last thing he wants is to have the teams physical therapist trying to tell him how to couch his boys. Doesn't matter how cute she is when she's arguing with him...or so he tries to tell himself.
This was a small town romance filled with a lot of heart that I think any contemporary fan will love. The characters were sweet, and funny, and even sexy at times. I liked the slow build to their relationship, it wasn't so slow that it got boring and it also wasn't rushed to where we missed pertinent information. The secondary characters were woven into the story in a very easy manner and it was great to meet all of them. Some of who I hope will get their own stories.
Overall, this was a super cute story that I really enjoyed reading. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants a light and funny read.
