WINNING ISN'T EVERYTHING Callie Daniels is a singular sensation. She owns and operates her own bakery, contributes to a popular lifestyle blog, and is the dance team coach at a local high school. She lives by her own design and is much too busy to consider dating. Mr. Right will have to fit into her life when the time is right... UNLESS YOU'RE PLAYING FOR KEEPS Football coach Bennett Clark always plays by the rules. He knows that his new colleague Callie is off limits but she's so beautiful-and irritating!-that Bennett can't get her off his mind. She wants him to participate in a charity dance contest, and won't take no for an answer. Soon, what begins as a festive athletic endeavor turns into a heated flirtation on and off the dance floor. Could it be that the free-spirited Callie has finally found a way through Coach Clark's line of defense?
Win Me Over is the perfect sweet story. I was drawn in by the idea that the main character, Callie, is a blogger! So a mix of a hunky football player and a baker/blogger? I’m sold!
Luckily? This book was as fantastic as it sounds. I felt an instant connection with both Callie and Bennett, and I only grew more in love with them both as the story unfolded.
Callie was a fresh breath of air – I’ve read some pretty soft leading ladies lately, and she was anything but! She was full of spunk, fire and emotion. And I loved every minute of her page-time.
Bennett is broken – physically, and emotionally. After his career-ending injury and his girlfriend left him? He’s skeptical and avoiding the spotlight at all costs. So being tossed into the craziness of a local dance contest with Callie? Well, he’s all kinds of uncomfortable!
The love story in Win Me Over is slow – there’s instant chemistry, but the love comes slowly and is believable! (Something I need for a Romance to be good – no insta-love here!)
I think fans of Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallery will absolutely love Nicole Michaels fresh writing style!
