When horse racing and football collide, Hunter McCoy, star tight end of the Seattle Steelheads and neophyte horse owner, finds himself in a battle of wills with a sexy horsewoman and a stubborn, champion Thoroughbred.

In order to save the farm and fulfill her dying mother's wish, Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan’s Thoroughbred has to beat Hunter's horse in the Derby, an easy enough feat until her heart entered the race.

Lilli McCoy, Hunter's sister, has been burned by men before, but she'd believed her last boyfriend was The One. He wasn't. He couldn't deal with Lilli's disability and used her blindness as tool to cheat on her. Reeling from the betrayal, Lilli returns home to lick her wounds. She hadn't factored in the instant attraction she’d feel for her brother's playboy teammate, Cameron Swift. One playboy in her life should've been enough.

A new delve into horse racing from one of my favorite sports authors! A really enjoyable read that takes you through the trials and tribulations of falling in love but being in denial about it, and when to let yourself trust that you’ve truly found “the one”. If you are coming to this book expecting your typical football engrossed novel, you will not find it. There’s a very moderate amount of football talk or action in this story … but there is a large presence of horse racing in it. I was slightly thrown when a 2nd hero’s perspective started being shown, but I soon caught on with what was going on and went with the flow … and in the end, the 2nd side story was just as sweet as the first! 🙂

Seattle Steelheads tight end Hunter McCoy has been all about family and football for a long time now, but he has a new passion in his life that he’s brought his sister Lilli and a few of his friends and teammates along for the ride on. He’s the majority owner in a Derby contender race horse with several of them having part ownership. He’s sure they are going to win the Kentucky Derby this year … but then he meets someone who is sure SHE is going to win!

Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan comes from a long line of horse breeding and championship training at her family’s Kentucky farm. She has one last chance to save the farm … and honor her mother’s dying wish … she has to win the Derby this year!! A friendly competition abounds with a good bit of a love hate relationship going on with Hunter and Kate. Will they be able to agree to disagree and find some common ground in the end? And when his sister falls for one of his teammates, will he be able to keep his cool and not lose a friend … and his sister?
