REVIEW: Coach by Devney Perry


* * * * * * * * * *


I’ve spent the better part of a decade forgetting Ford Ellis. If he had just stayed away from Montana, I might have erased the memory of his striking blue eyes and rugged smile forever. Avoiding him was easy when the only place I saw his face was on ESPN—and a remote control could fix that problem.

Except my boss just hired Ford as the new head coach for the Treasure State Wildcats. Not only will I be stuck watching him on the sidelines this season, but avoiding him will be impossible now that we’re working together.

Maybe I haven’t forgotten Ford. Maybe I still dream about what we might have been. Maybe he hasn’t forgotten me either.

Except those maybes won’t change the fact that we were never meant to be. Maybe he was mine once. But as of today, the only thing I’ll be calling Ford Ellis is Coach.

Devney Perry branches out into sports romances with Coach, the first book in her new Treasure State Wildcats series. Against a college football backdrop, Perry launches this series with a steamy and emotional second-chance, single father romance. Millie and Ford were best friends in college who both harbored secret crushes on each other but didn’t cross the line—until that one time… But then Ford took off, leaving Millie behind without a word. Ten years later, he returns to his alma mater as the new football coach and gets the surprise of a lifetime when he finds his old friend—and the only woman he’s ever loved—is one of his new co-workers.

Perry’s writing is always so beautifully crafted, and she has a talent for creating complex, relatable characters enveloped in poignant, heartfelt love stories. An unputdownable, heartwarming soul-mates love story with a dash of heartbreak and plenty of authentic emotion and smoking hot chemistry. The slow-burn build-up of Millie and Ford’s romance was sweet, steamy and addictive, and their journey is filled with ups and downs that kept me tapping my Kindle until the very end. I loved these characters, I adored Ford’s show-stealing daughter, Joey, and I was all-in and rooting for Millie and Ford from the from page one. Five smooches from me for Coach from Devney Perry!
