First & Goal is a fun, fantasy football-filled chick-lit novel about figuring out love and life. We start off with Harper, an office manager at a car dealership that is fabulous at her job, but not so great at connecting with the team. After a little encouragement from her boss to become friends with the guys, Harper finds herself getting pulled into her work’s fantasy football league as their 12th member. She figures since her brothers are football fans, they can help her figure out how to draft her team and not look like a total football fool by failing miserably.
Cue the beginning of Harper’s hilarious path on her pursuit to become one of the guys. Throw in a cute co-worker and a sexy high school football coach and you’ve got yourself a recipe for some major drama and laughs.
One of the main themes in this novel is the importance of learning to stop second guessing yourself. Learning to let yourself be happy and believe that you deserve the best is vital on your path of love and life. You can’t let your rocky past dictate your bright future and ultimately, you must realize that nobody’s life is perfect, but that’s no reason to not keep pushing towards your goals and living life to the fullest.
First & Goal was wonderfully written and was a thoroughly entertaining novel. Who knew fantasy football could be so stressful but exciting at the same time? I’m not a football gal myself but it piqued my interest and you don’t need to know a thing about the game to enjoy this novel. Whether you’re a football fan or simply a chick-lit enthusiast, this novel is for you!
First & Goal is an entertaining chick lit tale that follows the trials and tribulations of Harper Duquaine as she delves into the competitive world of fantasy football leagues.
Author Laura Chapman weaves a sassy tale full of humor and drama that easily draws the reader into Harper's story as she tries to fit in with her new co-workers by joining their fantasy football league. As a newbie, it doesn't take long for Harper to set aside nicety and realize the competitive edge to the league ... and when you add in two sexy men who vie for her attention but who are also her challengers, what are her chances at winning the game and finding love?
As a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan who also plays the various fantasy sports leagues, I can so relate to the author's passion, and to Harper's competitive side as she learns the ins-and-outs of fantasy football leagues, and the drama that comes with it. I couldn't help but snicker as I read the story, it is just plain fun. I absolutely loved the intertwining of romance with a football theme, football fans get the best of both worlds in this nifty little story!
First & Goal is an exciting and fast paced story that flows smoothly and easily keeps the reader turning the pages. Author Laura Chapman sure knows how to weave an enjoyable tale that keeps her readers in stitches. You can't help but get caught up in Harper's roller coaster ride of a life full of crazy co-workers and fantasy football drama, and a sweet chance at romance, it's simply delightful!
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author / publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Harper is positively irresistible! She is smart, hard-working, sassy, quirky, and absolutely hilarious. (Though I'm not sure she always intends to be so funny.) In an attempt to win over some of her coworkers and distract them from her super-organized, workaholic tendencies; she spontaneously agrees to join their fantasy football league. The trials and tribulations of her weekly fantasy match-ups are comical!
With the new league, her social circle expands significantly. Enter Brook. Multi-time league champion, high school football coach, and hunky, sweet, specimen-of-a-man; Brook is a dream! And Brooke and Harper soon find themselves in a budding relationship that exists both inside and outside of the league.
This book made me laugh out loud. There were several parts that had me in tears - and not the sad kind. First & Goal: Queen of the League is smart, sassy, funny and romantic. The book is set in Lincoln, Nebraska. It was so much fun reading about characters in a setting that I know so well. Lincoln is a sports town, especially for football. And it provided the perfect backdrop for this story. The football parts of the story are smartly written but can be enjoyed by a football pro or rookie. And, if you or anyone you know has ever participated in Fantasy Football, you will really get a kick out of this!
First & Goal: Queen of the League is one of my favorite books from this year. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire thing from start to finish. If you are looking for a sports romance, with great characters and LOL-moments, this one will definitely deliver.
