GoodReads Summary:
Angela Peterson was always the quiet, shy kid growing up in Harper Falls, crushing on the high school quarterback and honing her football strategy skills. Now grown up and coaching the high school team, she’s shocked when that same sexy quarterback returns to Harper Falls asks her back to his hotel room. And then tries to steal her job.
Injured NFL quarterback Cade Reynolds is in Harper Falls to take over as interim head coach, and he never thought the tall, blond bombshell he propositioned would offer up any resistance. Not to a repeat of the amazingly wild night they shared and certainly not to his coaching position.

But the Harper Falls High Eagles are Angie’s team, and even the hometown hero won’t take that away from her, no matter how hot he is. As the two engage in a battle of wits and wills, this is one game neither is prepared to lose.
I initially received this book to read  and review for the blog tour surrounding it's release.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to participate as planned because I was admitted into the hospital due to pregnancy complications.

I was happy to finally get the chance to read the book, however, and was no disappointed.  It caught and held my attention instantly.  I'm very much into more adult books and Skin In The Game has just enough sexy situations to satisfy without going overboard.  I enjoyed the characters as well as the overall story and believe that, in my opinion, it was very well written.  I would have no problems reading more from Jackie Barbosa in the future.

I do think the ending was pretty predictable but it fit well within the story, so no complaints here.

Characters: Cade.
Rating: 4 Stars.
