Win Me Over (Hearts and Crafts, #2)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...


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?

Callie Daniels life is going good at least for the most part. She owns her own successful bakery, works on a blog with two of her friends, and those same friends met at least twice a week to eat and share what is going on in their lives. She then takes on the coaching duties for the dance team at the local high school after the pervious coach was let go. This other than baking is really what she loves dancing, and something she has been doing since four or five and she even earned a scholarship to college for her dancing. Really the only person that bugs her is her mother but that is just a mother daughter thing, and she wants her to be married and have children. Callie is not on that idea yet. After the first week of practice the principle asks to talk to her after practice and during the meeting it is brought up about a dance competition, like on T.V. for a fund raiser at the local country club. She had heard about it but really had not thought about competing because of all of the extra things she had been taking on. The principal wanted her to talk to the head football coach Bennett Clark into being her partner even though he had already said he did not want to do it. She said she would try. Thinking that the football coach would be old and stuffy she was surprised when he was well built 6’4” and worked out. Once she got her composer and they had their talk he still declined. Not telling her about his leg injury from a car accident his first year in the NFL that ended his career and put him her into teaching and being the head football coach. When Bennett finds out a week later that the prize is also scholarship money for seniors of the football team he decides to compete. Their practice and their feelings for each other takeoff and though she tries to hold back on the physical part they finally let their feelings for each other go and everything was going great up to a point where a player got seriously hurt at one of the games and Bennett put a wall around himself and lock everyone out including Callie, who with the help of her team raised money for some of his hospital bills along with the town and other people joined in. Bennett though did nothing because he was locked in his home thinking about his injury and when it came time for the dance she sat there by herself as people asked where he was. When one of his friends showed up at his house and chewed his a-s for being a jack a-s he look on the web page and saw that while he was feeling sorry for himself Callie and the school were actually doing something. He called his former fiancĂ© and asked her what he was like after the accident and got the answer he was not expecting or wanting to hear but by then new it was the truth. If he wanted Callie in his life he would have to do something for her. That week at the pep rally with the help of her team and his he called her out to the middle of the floor and they did the dance. Later they talked about everything and he finally told her about his leg and he said with the help of her he would get out of his shell. A very good book and a fast read for me. I got this book from net galley.   I give this 5 stars.
