ABOUT THE BOOK
Football-loving TyAnne Daws has long admired BYU's star quarterback from afar. This semester, she's determined to step away from the sidelines — and she has the perfect game plan for winning the heart of Anthony "Rocket" Rogers. When some smart moves land her in one of his classes, she finds herself in the perfect position to make her play. But as she gets to know the real Anthony, away from the lights of the stadium, Ty realizes that this is no game — she's falling in love.
Anthony takes full advantage of his all-star status, holding girls at arm's length for one reason: it keeps him from repeating the same mistakes that once led to a devastating heartbreak. When he meets Ty, his assumption that she's just another pretty face is quickly proven wrong. Though he's completely drawn in by this sweet young woman, her intriguing mix of amusing football know-how, and her quiet selflessness, he will not let himself fall in love. But when faced with the reality of losing the woman he's come to care for despite himself, Anthony's resolve is tested — and he finds it's getting harder to keep his head in the game when his heart's on the line.
Being a big fan of BYU football I found this book, Playing for Keeps quite enjoyable. I enjoy love stories like this one that feel believable and real. Anthony and Ty are great characters that I liked reading about. They have their problems and struggles but they face them, eventually, with hope and faith. Like most relationships, Anthony and Ty's has it's ups and downs but they get it right in the end. The sweet romance was the highlight of the book but other issues are touched on, including mental illness, the challenges of being in the spotlight and the complications of stalking. All in all a sweet LDS romance that I can recommend for those who enjoy a smidjen of sports with their romance.
