Josie Barnes has always craved a sense of home. She's found
that in Hope, Oklahoma--she bought a house, has a new job
as an English teacher at Hope High, she's made wonderful
friends, and she's taking in stray animals that no one else
wants. Now she's flirting with fellow teacher and hot high
school football coach Zach Powers. But he's almost too good
to be true, and Josie learned long ago not to trust in the
too-good-to-be-true, because it has always let her down.
A former pro football player, Zach had to pull back when a
career-ending knee injury forced him to rethink his future.
Now he's happy calling plays as Coach. If he could just get
Josie Barnes to stop benching his players for their poor
grades, life would be perfect. Instead, she drives him
crazy as the stern teacher at school and the sexy woman of
his dreams outside of the classroom. He knows she's been
hurt in the past, but he wants to be that guy she can
The one thing Josie has never been able to count on is the
people closest to her. But Zach intends to show her that
what they have between them is a textbook case ofa love.
