Pair a biology teacher with a coach and a struggling student athlete for one explosive game of chemistry.
Gina Tellis is happy with her single life. She loves her job as a high school biology teacher in the Catskills town of Abbeydon and doesn’t need a man telling her what to do. Her routine gets turned on its head when the school hires a new coach who is too hot for words, but she’s content to admire from afar. She’s got zero interest in some former sports star.
Brandon Waters is trying to rebuild his life after an injury took him out of hockey forever. He came to Abbeydon to escape the constant pressure and attention, but small-town life has its own challenges—like everybody knowing your business. He didn’t count on meeting a woman who pushes all of his happy buttons. He sure as hell didn’t count on falling for her.
Then Gina notices the school’s star quarterback is struggling with his classes and she pits herself against the typical academics versus sports power struggle to help her student. She finds a surprising ally in Brandon, and chemistry simmers as the two work together to help the young player. Their budding relationship gets sidelined by her biases against sports and his fears of his continued struggles to deal with the lasting impact of his injuries.
Brandon will need to open up and let Gina help him, but first, she needs to accept the teacher and the jock can work together.
