Last Chance Hero by Catherine Armstrong

The inhabitants of Last Chance, New Mexico, could not be more pleased. Dr. Jessica McLeod has opened an office right on Main Street. Andy Ryan, the best athlete the little town ever produced, has ended his short career in the NFL and has come home to coach the mighty Pumas of Last Chance High. Unfortunately, Dr. Jess immediately gets off on the wrong foot when she admits that she's never seen a football game, isn't really interested in doing so, and, in fact, doesn't know a first down from a home run. Meanwhile, Coach Ryan is discovering that it's not easy to balance atop the pedestal the town has put him on. When this unlikely pair is drawn together over the future of a young player--whose gifts may lie in the laboratory rather than on the football field--they begin to wonder if they might have a future together as well.

Overall this wasn’t a bad book.  I liked Jess and Ryan.  They were as different as night and day.  He lived and breathed football.  She lived and breathed medicine.  Jess also didn’t know anything about football.  And didn’t really have any desire to learn.  This book is about their journey to discover love is right around the corner and that there is more to life than they had thought.  The only problem I would say I had with the book is that it ended rather abruptly.  I turned the page and there wasn’t anything else.  The ending was ok but it just seemed the book stopped.  I would have like to see some resolution on some of the issues that were raised during the course of the book. 

I would recommend this book for anyone seeking a light Christian romance novel. 

I was given this book for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way.
