Goodreads Summary

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress.

Two season tickets. 
One genius idea. 
Zero interest in a relationship. 

The plan is simple: a brand new, hot, preferably funny, definitely single male will fill one of those seats for every Bears game at Soldier Field. And I’ll fill the other. 

I can’t think of a better way to use the season passes I’d bought for my ex-husband. I am a woman of plans, and this one’s foolproof. 

Until Zach Bowen offers to be my practice round. 

He’s infuriating. Presumptuous and overbearing. And absolutely, undeniably gorgeous. Any woman with a heartbeat would be attracted to him, and mine picks up speed every time he speaks. 

But as I said, I’m a woman of plans — and I’m not backing down on this one. 

One night. One game. And then, his time’s up. 

He can try to change the rules, but here’s the truth: he can’t win if he’s playing the wrong game.

Review

A book about a female football fan who has season tickets to the Chicago Bears sounds like the perfect book for me. I am also a female football fan from Chicago. The Bears are my team. Sounds great, right? Not so much.

First of all, I have to things about this book that stuck in my craw. The are:

  • Gemma referred to her ex-husband. He’s dead. They were married when she died. He was not her ex-husband. 
  • They kept talking about the “kiss cam” at Soldier Field. They don’t do kiss cams at football games, especially Soldier Field (where I was a season ticket holder).

Ok, back to the story. I freaking loved Zach. He’s a great guy who gave up so much for his family, and he’s a hopeless romantic. He meets Gemma and he’s instantly smitten. Gemma’s plan is to take a different guy to each home game, to get herself back into the market. She doesn’t count on meeting Zach.

The reason I gave this book only 3 stars was Gemma. She was a really hard character to like. On paper, we have a lot in common. Both football fans from Chicago. But this girl, who was hurt, which I get, my god. She just wouldn’t budge on her stand to give Zach a chance. It made her so hard to like.

I did like the way this book ended and it had a good ending. But overall, I couldn’t relate to the heroine, which made the book less likable for me.
