Last week we saw that Kurt was in the middle of his football game when Susan sent him a note. It made him mad, but he looked at it and saw that she had sketched a football play for him. Since he was about to lose the game he decides to try it, and he won the game. I'm skipping a section here and our excerpt starts the next day. We're in Kurt's POV.


Excerpt:


Kurt yawned and turned over to look at the clock. Seven thirty. Dang that barking dog next door. He usually didn’t get up until eight thirty or so on Saturday. He squeezed his eyes shut, but he couldn’t go back to sleep because he’d started to think of Susan English.

 How did a beautiful English teacher come up with such a simple but effective play? I spend a lot of time creating new plays and devising strategies, but this one strikes me as brilliant. I’ve never done anything to equal it. He chuckled. Hope she doesn’t want my job.
 
Blurb:

Susan English can’t stand Robin Lanford! She’s so full of herself she irritates everyone on the faculty of Fairfield High. When Robin bets Susan fifty dollars that she can’t get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach, Susan jumps at the chance to put the little heifer in her place. She had no idea that teaching Robin a lesson would irrevocably change her life, strain treasured friendships, and throw two families into chaos.

Interesting the way she approaches to get his interest.

Now you really have me wondering how she does come up with these plays... I am so looking forward to reading this story!

I think your heroine has a secret superpower ;-) or a gootball mad man in the family!

With a last name of English, she seems pre-destined to be a teacher...I think his job is safe. :-)

Fun little snippet, and hopefully he doesn't spend every waking moment thinking about her, or he'll end up having to use her playcalling talents in the future. :-)

So charming and funny. A football play brings romance to this couple, I do believe. Lovely, Elaine.

Christina Ochs said...

I'm wondering how she figured out the play too. I'll be she has more than one hidden talent. :-)

I want to know what the play was! Flea Flicker? Statue of Liberty? Lonesome Polecat? Can you tell I'm married to a coach? Love this story!

Um... it's not your job she's after...

Jennifer Powell Reynolds said...

If they end up together, she could be his assistant. Fun snippet. :)

Veronica Scott said...

She's certainly on his mind! Enjoyed the excerpt very much...

Siobhan Muir said...

She definitely has his attention now. Good snippet, Elaine. :)

Ed Hoornaert said...

LOL. She's literally beating him at his own game ... and he's man enough not to get furious about it. Good for both of them.

Caitlin Stern said...

Well, an hour less sleep probably won't kill him--except he could spend it dreaming about a certain someone. ;)

Linda said...

She totally wants his job, lol! What a way to get at him. She is going to win her bet!

Emmy Gatrell said...

I think I love these two. Seem perfect for each other. Can't wait for more!

dmorgana said...

Well, I can tell him one thing, it's not his job she wants. But how did she come up with the play?
