A disgraced soccer exec reluctantly enlists the help of a retired soccerstar in coaching a children's team in this smalltown love story in the vein ofTed Lasso and It Happened One Summer -from the New York Times bestselling authorof 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 theteam's mascot goes viral. Rather than fire her, the team's owner-who happensto be her father-sends Adalyn to middle-of-nowhere North Carolina, whereshe's tasked with turning around the struggling local soccer team, the GreenWarriors, as a way to redeem herself. Her plans crumble upon discovering thatthe players wear tutus to practice (impractical), keep pet goats (messy), andare terrified of Adalyn (counterproduc­tive), and are nine-year-old kids.

To make things worse, also in town is Cameron Caldani, goalkeeping prodigywhose presence is somewhat of a mystery. Cam is the perfect candidate to helpAdalyn, 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. Butbanishment is not an option for Adalyn. Not again. Helping this ragtagchildren's team is her road to redemption, and she is playing the long game.With or without Cam's help.
