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.

The story here is about a strong woman learning that she is strong, overcoming some set backs in her life and meeting real men. The Hero is a High School Teacher and Coach who really is "ripped from real life". The plot is interesting, as the Heroine learns how to work Fantasy Football with a group of men that easily represent the typical fantasy football group. The romance moves at a slow and steady pace, which makes this a good read.
This is not a thriller nor a spy novel. It is a quiet love story that captivated me. The only slight negative is the predictability of the book. Some incidents were unusual, but on the whole, it moved towards a known ending. BUT then, so does true love.
I recommend it highly.
It soon became clear to me that there was nothing to worry about. Football is a large part of the story but it is not THE story. The star of the show is Harper and, much like Laura Chapman’s previous leading ladies, she’s a main character you want to cheer for. I really liked Harper because she was so real. Her backstory was also very interesting and relatable. I wanted her to succeed... in love, life, and fantasy football.
Laura Chapman creates a colorful cast of supporting characters and a totally swoon-worthy leading man. (You’ll have to read the book to discover who he is.) FIRST & GOAL is charming, funny, and entertaining. I’m so happy the story doesn’t end here and there are more Queen of the League books coming up!
