A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A disgraced soccer exec reluctantly enlists the help of a retired soccer star in coaching a children’s team in this small-town love story in the vein of It Happened One Summer—from the New York Times bestselling author of The Spanish Love Deception.

Adalyn Reyes has spent years perfecting her daily routine: wake up at dawn, drive to the Miami Flames FC offices, try her hardest to leave a mark, go home, and repeat.

But her routine is disrupted when a video of her in an altercation with the team’s mascot goes viral. Rather than fire her, the team’s owner—who happens to be her father—sends Adalyn to middle-of-nowhere North Carolina, where she’s tasked with turning around the struggling local soccer team, the Green Warriors, as a way to redeem herself. Her plans crumble upon discovering that the players wear tutus to practice (impractical), keep pet goats (messy), and are terrified of Adalyn (counterproductive), and are nine-year-old kids.

To make things worse, also in town is Cameron Caldani, goalkeeping prodigy whose presence is somewhat of a mystery. Cam is the perfect candidate to help Adalyn, but after one very unfortunate first encounter involving a rooster, Cam’s leg, and Adalyn’s bumper, he’s also set on running her out of town. But banishment is not an option for Adalyn. Not again. Helping this ragtag children’s team is her road to redemption, and she is playing the long game. With or without Cam’s help.

Elena Armas is a Spanish writer, self-confessed hopeless romantic, and proud book hoarder. Now, she’s also the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Spanish Love DeceptionThe American Roommate Experiment, and The Long Game. Her books are being translated to over thirty languages—which is bananas, if you ask her.

Reviews

"Narrators Frankie Corzo and Shane East fully immerse listeners in this small-town enemies-to-lovers soccer romance. After an altercation with the Miami Flames’ soccer team mascot goes viral, Adalyn Reyes is banished by her father, the Flames’ owner, to a North Carolina backwoods town to turn around a struggling youth soccer team for girls. Her first encounter with the Green Warriors' coach, Cameron Caldani, a broody retired professional goalkeeper, is anything but pleasant. Corzo and East flawlessly transition into various character voices. Also, Corzo’s inflections shine in her portrayal of Adalyn’s witty banter and emotional longing. Plus, East’s charming British accent and smooth delivery of swoony heartfelt words will have listeners pining for Adalyn and Cameron to find their happily-ever-after." Expand reviews
