Harper Duquaine is back for another season of fantasy football! This time she’s a year wiser and prepared to dominate the league. But while she finally seems to have her fantasy life in order, reality proves more challenging.
Her plans to peacefully play house with her boyfriend come to a halt when the high school suddenly names Brook its head football coach. The promotion comes with more responsibility on the field and less time at home. It also unexpectedly means more work for Harper, who already has her hands full helping a friend pull off the perfect proposal (while dodging questions about when she and Brook are going to get hitched already). Plus, a new development at work could leave her—and half of the fantasy league—jobless.
With the complications of her career and being “Mrs. Coach” adding up, Harper wonders if she’s committed to the life she’s already building or if there is something else out there.
“There is enough football woven into this story to keep me pumped for football… And there is plenty of relationship ups and downs to keep me interested as well. There is a very nice balance of the two. This is a perfectly wonderful chick lit/sports story.”

“I can so relate to Harper and the addicting feeling of being the surprise underdog in a man’s activity (fantasy football for Harper, March Madness for me) and the anxiety for the next year’s challenge. Throw in some relationship dilemmas and you got yourself a great chicklit novel!”

“It’s not often I enjoy a sequel just as much, if not more, than it’s predecessor. That has been my M.O. with not only books, but movies, too. I can honestly say I enjoyed Going For Two even more than First and Goal- and let me tell you, that’s saying a lot, because I thoroughly enjoyed First and Goal!”

“Harper is a super loveable lead character. She reminds me a little of myself cause she can talk sports with the best of them, but she can be girly too. And Brook is a DREAM.”

“I promise if you give it a chance you will enjoy it. You don’t have to get football to fully enjoy this read, it’s funny and the relationships are what truly makes this read. No matter if it’s the relationship between Harper and Brook or that of the ones between friends this is a story that has something for everyone.”
