My life revolved around two things. Football and my cock. And not necessarily in that order.
Being the head football coach for a top university in Texas had its ups and its downs.
The ups? Endless women to f*ck.
The downs? The politics that came with the job.
From the moment Aubrey Cain walked into my office, she turned my world upside down. Being forced to have her follow me around for a month was going to be a pain in the ass. Especially since I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her.
The best I’d hoped to come out of this was a few nights with her in my bed. I never imagined she’d be the game changer.
Brett Owens was my assignment.
Head football coach for a top college, bad boy reputation, short temper, and handsome good looks should have scared me off. But I was tougher than that.
From the first words out of his obnoxious, dirty-talking mouth, I knew it was going to be a long month. It wasn’t five minutes after meeting him, he hit on me. If only I had known his blue eyes would haunt my dreams and awaken a desire inside of me I never knew existed.
This was business. There was no way I would be tempted by him no matter how good looking he was or how many things he whispered in my ear.
He was only supposed to be my assignment. Not the man who threatened to destroy both my heart and my career. I would follow along with his playbook for now. But who would end up winning was anyone’s guess.

So Kelly Elliott has done it again!!!
She has given us a great book with an interesting storyline and wonderful characters.
I have to be honest….this book does have a different feel from the other Kelly Elliott books I have read. Yes she gave us a story with all the usual drama, Yes she gave us the sweet love story, and of course we got the HUNKY Hero, but what made this feel different to me was that it wasn’t an over the top gushy love story. Brett and Aubrey had to work at things.
Their journey wasn’t an easy one.
Also I had a hard time liking Brett in the beginning. Usually I fall for her Heroes immediately…..that was not the case with Brett. But by the end of the book, I loved him just as much as her other Heroes. I will say I that I believe Aubrey is one of the strongest heroines Kelly has given us. She wasn’t all broken and needing to find herself. She was strong and knew what she wanted out of life. I really LOVED Aubrey!!!
As with all of Kelly’s books the writing was effortless and the pace was perfect. The Playbook is a standalone novel with a completed story. This book actually felt longer than some of her other books, but it never dragged. The storyline was interesting enough to keep my intrigued all the way through. I will be honest that, at closer to the end of the story, there is a part that I really didn’t like in the book and didn’t think it was necessary for the storyline, (hint: Logan) but it didn’t take away from my complete enjoyment of this book. I just thought it could’ve been left out.
As with all of Kelly’s books, I get sucked into the story and her characters lives. The Playbook was NO different. I found it really hard to put down once I started.
I would 100% recommend this book to everyone who likes a great sports romance. This was a different type of spin on your usual sports romance story. If you are a fan of Kelly’s books you won’t want to miss this standalone novel. And if Kelly is a new author to you, then I think The Playbook is a great place to start your journey into her stories.
