New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack follows up her trio of hits—Losing It, Faking It, and Finding It—with this thrilling first novel in an explosive series bursting with the Texas flavor, edge, and steamy romance of Friday Night Lights. In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both. Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past. But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again. Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It's obliterated. Dallas doesn't know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn't know that Dallas is his new coach's daughter. And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.

“You would think being the football coach’s daughter would be a benefit. I know more about the sport than half the guys at our school, knowledge that should make it easy to land a date. If they weren't all petrified of my father.” –Dallas

"In Texas, everyone is a wannabe coach." - Dallas

That quote made me LOL so much. It might have to do with the fact that I love Friday Night Lights so much & know exactly what she means. I can't say from experience, but I know Dallas has it tough. All she's ever wanted to do is Dance and get away from anything football related, but when your dad is a coach known for bring back teams that aren't doing so well and you just happen to be at a new college where said football program ain't doing so well.... well you can see the issue. She thought she was leaving that all behind, but it just keeps catching up with her.

"I've spent too much time pretending, too much time on the outside, too much time feeling spineless. This time... I'm going after what I want." - Dallas

“Why would you tell me that?”
“So that when I slip up and break my promise, you’ll at least know I tried.” –Dallas and Carson
