REVIEW: Coach by Devney Perry


Coach was something different than what I usually expect when I think of a Devney Perry novel. I typically associate her novels with a character that's in danger or trouble and in their plight to escape it or avoid it or rectify it, they fall in love with someone involved...or something along those lines. When I saw her first announcement of this novel, I was intrigued. I like football and romance and the single dad/second chance tropes so I grabbed it up when it went live. 

This novel follows the story of Millie and Ford and how they went from best friends to strangers, with Millie having some really hurt feelings about how things went down. Fast forward to many years after college and Ford ends up being hired at the head coach where Millie is one of the assistant athletic directors. As you can imagine, things heat up almost immediately. Ford is instantly interested in Millie as soon as he sees her and Millie is instantly guarded when she sees him. As the pages go on, we learn more about why there are hurt feelings and why things happened the way that they did. Soon it's less about the past and more about how they navigate a world where he's a dad, plus they're colleagues in a place that has a zero tolerance policy on coworkers dating. It's at times tense, at times frustrating, but ultimately satisfying that things end the way they do.

 It's always interesting when a tried and true author does something a little different from what many expect and I can only see this series getting stronger as Devney Perry delves into it.



single dad, sports romance from Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author, Devney Perry.

Football star. Single dad. And once, a long time ago, mine.

I’ve spent the better part of a decade forgetting Ford Ellis. If he had just stayed away from Montana, I might have erased the memory of his striking blue eyes and rugged smile forever. Avoiding him was easy when the only place I saw his face was on ESPN—and a remote control could fix that problem.

Except my boss just hired Ford as the new head coach for the Treasure State Wildcats. Not only will I be stuck watching him on the sidelines this season, but avoiding him will be impossible now that we’re working together.

Maybe I haven’t forgotten Ford. Maybe I still dream about what we might have been. Maybe he hasn’t forgotten me either.

Except those maybes won’t change the fact that we were never meant to be. Maybe he was mine once. But as of today, the only thing I’ll be calling Ford Ellis is Coach.
