Review | Playing at Love by Ophelia London

Sooooooooo I really likes this book!  You totally need to check it out!  
It is an adult book but it is clean because of the publisher; it's a Bliss imprint from Entangled.  
It's a nice real life contemporary romance.  Ok so here we go!


Show choir teacher Tess Johansson loves three things: music, her job, and sharing that passion with her students. But when a school budget crisis forces funding to be pulled from either the sports or music programs, she finds herself going head to head with Jack, the gorgeous new football coach who broke her heart fifteen years ago.

Jack Marshall wants two things: to be closer to his young daughter and to make his mark as a football coach. Taking the new job, with the promise that he’d have time to build a solid team, gave him both. But now he must win the season with a group of boys who aren't anywhere near ready or he’ll lose everything he’s worked so hard for. Being pitted against Tess, the summer love he never forgot, is like being fourth and long with only seconds on the clock.

On opposing sides of a fierce battle and with everything at stake, Tess and Jack find themselves torn between doing what it takes to win and doing what it takes to be together.

My Review

So..... I really really liked this book!  I am usually a little iffy about the Bliss books, but I always like them... I don't know why but I must get amnesia every time I pick a new one up.  I am always iffy because I know they don't  have the "steamy sexy stuff" in them.  Don't get me wrong - they are AWESOME and always full of steaminess just not the normal stuff I'm used to really loving from Entangled.  Ok... now that I've kind of confused everyone with my ramblings - but - I will say this - this book DOES NOT NEED the extra explicit stuff that I classify as Adult, if you know what I mean.  **wink, wink** 
I completely LOVED this book.  The story was so good - characters are amazing - setting is perfect.  I think I loved this because of the history between Tess and Jack.  I loved the story there - I always love a second chance romance!  Don't hate me... but it reminds me of an adult version of Glee, kind of...  It isn't centered around the glee club (show choir) completely - it's about their teacher, but you meet a few kids.  And they totally add tot he story.  My favorite parts of the story were in the pool and at Tess's apartment   LOVED IT!
I don't have a song for you for this book... I know - unusual right?!  Since this had so much music in it anyway, I couldn't really hear anything specific the whole way through.
Anyway... final words - check out this book, I think you'll like it.  It is a perfect classic contemporary romance story.  <3
