They say the red zone is the hardest place to score.

But for me, those last twenty yards were my sweet spot.

They didn’t call me Lukas “Last Minute Lucy” Callihan for nothing.

I was at the top of my game…until life sacked me harder than any linebacker ever could.

Losing my mom was devastating and left me as the sole person responsible for my little sister.

Taking care of Ella and juggling my career was like playing the hardest game of my life.

My only saving grace was Scarlett Knox, Ella’s sexy, red-headed, no-nonsense teacher.

She loved Ella. She hated me.

She thought I sucked at this parenting thing, and she wasn’t wrong.

But whenever she was around I got the same earth-shattering, heart-stopping feeling I did when I was only twenty yards from the goal line.

She made me feel like I was back in the red zone, a place I’d never fumbled.

Until now.


My review:

Scarlett and Lukas were friends in high school when Scarlett was a freshman and Luk was a senior. She was his French tutor but they soon became close friends. Shortly before leaving town, Luk kissed Scarlett and then never talked to her again, breaking her heart.

Now ten years later, Luk is on a successful NFL team on their way to the Superbowl when he gets word his mother suddenly died. He moves back home to Alabama, guardian of his little sister Ella. Little does he know that Ella’s beloved teacher Ms Lettie is his Scarlett.

I loved this book so much! Luk is all about his family. He has adored his sister since she was born. But becoming her sole caretaker is another thing. He struggles with so much – his loss, being what Ella needs, his new team. And Scarlett is still the one who can help him. But she is afraid of letting him in again.

This book was so well written. The story is captivating and I felt like I was right there with the characters, experiencing things as they did. Luk and Scarlett are so perfect for each other, and I love how they created their own family.
