Play by Play- Kate Donovan

Former college football star Jake Dublin’s wildly popular sports blog also details his personal life. And lately it’s all about Sophie, the pretty young woman who just moved into his apartment building. His readers know her only as “Elevator Girl,” and they’re all rooting for Jake to score.

The blog posts and banter with his followers are all in good fun, and he fully intends to come clean with the woman he’s wooing and wowing. That is, until she confides that she grew up in a house full of jocks and even dated a few. Her verdict? Never again!

Jake knows he needs to confess. But somewhere along the line he fell in love with Sophie and can’t stand the thought of losing her. So he procrastinates, and blogs, and digs himself deeper into a hole, until it all leads to a showdown that’s so nail-biting, not even the best play-by-play guy could ever have seen it coming.

This is a short and sweet novella, with a cute plot. Its not deep and meaningful it straight to the point with good characters.
What i did like about this sports romance the lead hero is not a big shot football player, he played collage ball for a time but a injury stopped him from going big time. Jake is not bitter he has just moved on to do something else with all his football knowledge.

I liked the style in which this book was written we get mostly Jake’s POV but then a big part of the story is written as Jake’s blog posting i found this refreshing and easy to read. The story is a funny smart and cute romance.

For such a short novella this story was great there was enough plot to carry it, i do find some novella’s lacking story content but this book ticked all the boxes for me.
