The Love Playbook by Suze Winegardner
Publication Date: November 4, 2019
Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush
When Avery Stone learns her dad will be fired if his high school team doesn’t make the playoffs, she has to get her head out of her day planner and do something—anything—to help him win. Even if it means secretly coaching the team’s newest player, who seems to have more game than skill.
Lucas Black just transferred to Hillside with a fake name and a big secret. The MVP of every team he’d played on since he was seven—not to mention the MVP of every post-game party—he can’t understand why since arriving at Hillside, he’s been unable to catch a single. Freaking. Ball.
Until…Avery. Amazing, kind, generous, and crazy-freaking-hot Avery.
As Lucas goes from zero back to hero and Avery struggles with just what Lucas means to her, she inadvertently sets them on a collision course with Lucas’s secret…a secret that could take down not only Lucas but her father too.
DISCLAIMER: This Entangled Teen Crush contains a football player hotter than the Texas sun, hotel cuddles, and a steamy makeout session in the rain.
Cover Love (Why you love the cover)
The cover to The Love Playbook was designed by Juliana Cabrera, and I think she did a great job. When you hear “you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover”, I want to yell “BUT I WANT YOU TO!”
I think a good cover should pretty much show the reader what they’re getting inside. And this one really does… it’s all football, and closeness, and intensity. The only thing I think the cover doesn’t show is the humor running throughout the book, but how was Juliana going to show that? Plonking a red nose on one of the characters?! Bottom line is that this cover pretty much shows what readers will get inside. So feel free to JUDGE MY BOOK BY JULIANA’S COVER! I love it!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Suze Winegardner is a British YA writer, currently living overseas with her military husband, and lovely Lab. She loves Buffy, Fray Bentos pies, Archer, cheese, and the serial comma. Wait – Cadbury Flakes too. And naps. Wait, what was the question? Anyway, she thinks her life is chock full of hoot, just a little bit of nanny…and if you get that reference, she already considers you kin.
