About The Trouble WIth Quarterbacks
CANDACE: KAT & YASMINE! DO NOT DALLY! Come straight home after work. Kat, don’t take the long route from the subway station just so you can pass by Cute Hot Dog Guy. This is important!
I’ve had THE BEST DAY. You won’t believe it. There I was in my preschool classroom, washing a bit of poo out of some soggy trousers, when this absolute babe came to collect his nephew from my class.
Truthfully, I thought I’d blacked out for a moment when I first saw him. He was a proper hunk with glorious brown hair, quite tall, and he had these arms. Are muscly arms supposed to turn me on? I’m panting just thinking about them.
Anyway, he told me he’s a professional foosball player. At least, I think that’s what he said. The tots can get quite loud near pick-up time.
YASMINE: Foosball? What are you on about? Have you gone mad?
KAT: Oh sod off. So what if I like to have a good look at Hot Dog Guy’s arse on my trek home after a hard day’s work? It’s called self-care.
CANDACE: Kat, you’re hopeless. Yasmine, yes—foosball! I suppose it’s a big thing over here in the States? We must investigate and learn everything we can.
By the way, he’s called Logan.
Logan + Candace. I think that sounds quite nice! I can hear the wedding bells now. Dum dum da-dum.
YASMINE: Oh good grief. I suppose we can do some snooping when I get home. I’ll grab wine on my way.
KAT: I’ll grab hot dogs.
THE TROUBLE WITH QUARTERBACKS is a hilarious romance about unlikely love found between a British preschool teacher and the professional quarterback who sweeps her off her feet.
Candace Halliday & Logan Matthews
A preschool teacher & a professional quarterback
Straight-laced, everyday type & baller, in the public eye
On paper, Candace and Logan have nothing in common, but that’s exactly why they seem so drawn to each other and why the superstar football player revels in their time together — the flirting, the witty exchanges, the time spent getting to truly know each other, despite their seemingly busy lives – all of it allows them to be themselves and find a way, regardless of insecurities and second guessing to be on equal terms.
I really enjoyed how Grey crafted Candace and Logan’s personalities in a way that balanced each other out and gave them something to hold on to when things got to be too much or they went too far into their head, overthinking and feeling conflicted.
I can always count on R.S. Grey to put a smile on my face while making me laugh out loud at her characters’ antics as well as the amount of sass and snark that the hero and heroine exchange and then when she adds in just the right amount of sweet and swoon to the story line, it’s just the feel good read I needed.
