Jessica Montgomery’s chance at a promotion to CFO at her father’s company hinges on convincing Logan Wilde to sign on as chef at their Atlanta restaurants. When she arrives at his Falcon, Alabama eatery, she is confronted by a scruffy, unkempt man who helps her with her and sets her up at his friend’s B&B. She learns that the scruffy “mountain man” is actually Logan Wilde, who just returned from two weeks in the wilderness.
Now cleaned up, Logan, assistant coach to the Falcon football team, won’t make any promises but claims he will think about it. Meanwhile, she is stuck in podunk Falcon until her car is fixed and she won’t let Logan out of her sight until he agrees.
Their chemistry is undeniable, and before long the two surrender to their feelings. In fact, Jessica starts to fall not only for Logan but for this little Alabama town’s way of life. When her controlling father pays a visit to check on Jessica, he may ruin the only chance at happiness she has ever had.
This novel takes the excitement of high school football and the allure of a budding romance and rolls it into a pleasing and thoughtful story. Reliable characters coupled with passionate and genuine love scenes complete the package in Trentham’s second of the Falcon Football series.
