First and Goal (Moving the Chains Book 1) by Kata Čuić
Real life doesn’t come with a playbook.
Eva Papageorgiou has one goal—to make it through her senior year of high school unseen and unscathed. When her strategy to stay out of the limelight is derailed by rampant rumors, she’s forced to change tactics. Her new game plan is to keep everyone at arm’s length. Especially boys. So when she’s partnered up in class with the hot as hell varsity quarterback, she pushes and pushes.
Until he pushes back.
Rob Falls just wants to fit in. With his teammates, with his friends, with everyone. His image as the quintessential jock makes him feel like a fraud. Especially since it’s the only reason all the girls at school want him, except the one girl he dreams about. She wants nothing to do with him. When he’s forced to tutor the class pariah, he realizes it’s time to get in the game instead of standing on the sidelines.
She’s going to help him get exactly what he wants, whether she knows it or not.
