Harper continues to play Fantasy Football. She has a stable and happy relationship with Brook. But their equilibrium is upset when he is proposed to make the coach. He is always busy and also Haper has much work to do. She would like to support him in his career but they see less and less and Harper doesn't know if she has made the right choice. They will have to work hard to build their lives together.
Harper and Brook are a perfect couple and he's really amazing, a support for her. Harper is a very realistic character with her many qualities but her little and adorable defects. Very well developed and lovable are also the secondary characters.
It 's a likeable chick lit, exciting, full of humor with an interesting background about football. Hoping and waiting that comes out the third book, I absolutely want read the first one.
If you love chick-lit and football this book is a must read
In this series, Harper Duquaine joins her workmates' Fantasy Football league as a way to make friends in her new job, and ends up with a boyfriend, a best friend, and a life she loves. Harper's character is sweet, and relatable - at 27, she both panics about her life plan and gets fall-down-drunk at a bar. It's a dichotomy I (at almost 27) recognise all to well. Surrounded by the men in the league, her brothers, and her co-workers at the car dealership, Harper finds herself.
In First and Goal, I fell in love with Chapman's cast of characters. It was refreshing to read chick lit that had more men in the line up than women! Each of the guys was completely different, and all added something to the story. Really, there were only two women; Harper, and Amelia (a sister to one of the boys). I loved Amelia as much as Harper, she was strong and feisty, with a realistic dose of insecurity and hopeless romanticism. I would give First and Goal a solid 4/4.5 stars, as it kept me hooked from the beginning, and I was even invested in the results of the Fantasy Football tournament. Who would've thought!
Chapman's sequel, Going for Two, saw the same characters, back for another season of football. This time, Harper's life is a little more serious than it was the year before, and the book focuses more on actual 'adulting' - a work/life balance, marriage and kids. Because of these more serious topics, the competition of Fantasy Football was almost an afterthought, and overall the story was a little less bright than the first book in the series. I still liked it, but it did have a little less magic than the first instalment. All of the characters were still there, but the focus was definitely on the relationship between Brook and Harper, rather than Harper and everyone is the bigger group, which I really liked in the first book.
That said, I read that there's a third book coming soon, and I'll definitely be picking it up. After the ending of Going for Two, I'm very interested to see how the book brings the group back together for a third season in the League!
Going for Two is the second book in the Queen of the League series by Laura Chapman. If you need another classic example of why I love Chapman’s writing, then you’ve got it right here. Her writing is clever, witty and downright entertaining.
In the second novel we continue Brook and Harper’s story. At this point in time, their relationship has progressed and they’ve moved in together. Can they accomplish domestic bliss when they’ve got new drama and chaos in their lives? And all on top of another season of fantasy football on their hands? To overcome last year’s season, Harper has thoroughly done her homework and flawlessly creates a total kick-ass team. Will her practically perfect team be enough to make the cut to the playoffs and bring home a win?
One of my absolute favorite things about this story is the idea that they’re a team. Their relationship may not be perfect and they’ve got things to overcome and big decisions to make, but they’re doing it together. It’s so spot on and relate-able and at the same time extremely entertaining. This novel kept me entertained the whole way through and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series when it comes out!
5 stars for another win by Chapman
Chick lit fans, this is an AMAZING series that deserves to be read and I can't say enough good things about it. I highly recommend these books!
