Book Description

Tolly Lee is pearls, debutant balls, and old silver on the breakfast table. She is ashamed of something she did thirteen years ago, but she was only sixteen and she didn't set out to do it. Still, she should not have led college senior Nathan Scott to think she was his age. She never imagined a football star like him would keep calling her, but it was mostly a long distance relationship and it's not like they had sex. In the end, she paid for her sins with her heart and she might not be done paying. When she moved to Merritt, Alabama, Nathan had been gone for over a decade. Now that he's back, and if the good citizens of her adopted hometown learn of her part in costing their hometown hero his chance at an NFL career, she might as well pack up her law practice and move to Siberia.

A sports commentator christened Nathan Scott "The Angel" because of his flawless face and his ability to leap to catch a football, as if he had wings. He still has the face but his leaping days ended when he was injured after going on the football field distracted, only hours after catching the girl of his dreams in a terrible lie. He would never have accepted the job as head football coach of Merritt High if he'd known Tolly had set up shop on Main Street. Not that he still has feelings for her.

But a small town has a way of reviving the past and when common interest in an orphaned teenager forces Tolly and Nathan to agree to an uneasy truce, guilt and old resentments resurface.

With no end zone in sight, their mutual attraction leads to a Scrimmage Gone South.

Sensuality Level: Sensual

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as 'Sweet Gone South', but close July 19, 2013
By Patti
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forwards to reading this book after enjoying Sweet Gone South. However, I felt they authors spent too much time on Nathan's anger issues and Tolly's passivity. The story really clunked along at times and pacing was two steps forward--one step back.
Character development fell flat. It was pretty obvious the direction they were going with Jaime, the high school girl, who had a crush on Nathan and I felt bored.

I am hoping the next book is better!

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read. June 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
In Scrimmage Gone South by Alicia Hunter Pace, Tolly Lee may be from old money but that does not take away from the shame of what she did as a teenager. Trying to act wild and older than her then 16 years old, she ended up ruining the life of a young man with her lies and deceptions.

Nathan Scott also known as "The Angel" by everyone in Merritt, Alabama from his college football days has never forgiven Tolly for her deceptions, which led to his accident and his lost chance at the NFL. He believes that all she wanted is to be the center of attention and that he was no more than another star to add to her collection of sport stars.

Now many years later she is back in Merritt working with her cousin as a lawyer, while he is the high school football coach. He has done everything possible to keep away from her since her return to Merrit after a decade. But when the grandmother of his quarterback, Kirby, dies and he attends the funeral he finds himself face to face with her again while she is hugging Kirby, he believes that she is up to her old tricks again, but he will not allow her to ruin another young man's future.

As Kirby finds himself in a tough position since his only living relatives don't want him , Tolly knows that she cannot allow Kirby's family to ruin his future and decides to take custody of him herself. Something that she does not realize will bring her closer to Nathan than either one of them wants. Life as a new mom to a teenager will not be easy, especially with Nathan looking over her shoulder the entire time waiting for her to fail in some way so he can point it out to her.

The chemistry that was there a decade before is still there, but neither Nathan nor Tolly will accept it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purely entertaining. Purely southern. June 2, 2013
By cWallin
Format:Kindle Edition
This is another wonderful, touching, romantic and throroughly entertaing book by Alicia Hunter Pace. Each character is so well developed that one is swept into the warm southern landscape and into the emotions of young love, mistakes caused by inexperience, the pain of misunderstanding and the comfort of good friends. I truly loved this book. I never wanted it to end. I can not wait for more from this author

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Summer Beach Read May 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're hitting the beach soon Amazon's got the perfect summer beach read for your Kindle right here! The book is set in fictitious Merrit, Alabama and is the second in a series. Turns out the duo writers behind the pen name Alica Hunter Pace also happen to be Alabama locals. Their writing chemistry pulls off the perfect Southern themed romance combining food, football, friendship, and foolin' around. Make sure you start with Sweet Gone South before moving on to their new release Scrimmage Gone South. Don't have a Kindle? Sweet Gone South is now available in print!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved Scrimmage! May 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Scrimmage is a wonderful story set in a small town in the south where traditions were to be followed and respected from pearls to SEC football and friends that would move mountains for each other. Regardless of where you are from, you will fall in love with these characters and see yourself and your friends in them. Abilene from The Help would be so proud of how these babies turned out. I can't wait for the next book!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great April 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book and all Gone South books. The setting in a small Alabama town, I can relate to because I grew up in a small Alabama town. Also being a huge Alabama fan helped me enjoy the atmosphere of Alabama football. I really enjoy reading about southern towns and all the drama that surrounds the. The characters all are involved with each other. You need to read all Gone South books. They are great!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars This lady knows the South March 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found myself smiling (and sometimes frowning) many times in recognition of how well Pace portrays the way people act and think not only in the South but also in smaller towns where everyone knows everyone. I was frustrated by how much these main characters kept secrets and how much they didn't say when they arguing about something, but I guess that's what was supposed to cause the tension and I'm sure people do clam up a lot when they should be letting it all out. That's my only complaint, though, that I would have found myself in many situations yelling out what I really felt and thought where these people would leave in a huff without saying anything. But if that's my only complaint, you can see it's really no complaint at all. I enjoyed this book!
