Win Me Over Review by Nicole Michaels


Callie Daniels is a singular sensation. She owns and operates her own bakery, contributes to a popular lifestyle blog, and is the dance team coach at a local high school. She lives by her own design and is much too busy to consider dating. Mr. Right will have to fit into her life when the time is right...


Football coach Bennett Clark always plays by the rules. He knows that his new colleague Callie is off limits but she's so beautiful-and irritating!-that Bennett can't get her off his mind. She wants him to participate in a charity dance contest, and won't take no for an answer. Soon, what begins as a festive athletic endeavor turns into a heated flirtation on and off the dance floor. Could it be that the free-spirited Callie has finally found a way through Coach Clark's line of defense?

Win Me Over (Hearts and Crafts, #2)

Win Me Over by Nicole Michaels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 2nd book in the series but the first book I have read by Michaels and I really got into it. This is another small town romance that has football in it.

Bennett was in the nfl until a horrible car accident shattered his leg and ended his career. And to top it off his fiancé left him. Since then he has been a science teacher and a football coach. His life has been pretty content, he had dated here and there but nothing to serious unless he lays eyes on Callie.

Since Callie has moved to town she has opened her own bakery and this will be her first year becoming the dance coach. Bennett is up for an award for the past 6 years but hasn't won. The principal believes with Callie's help he can win. Callie expects coach Clark to be some old stuffy guy so when she goes to class room she is completely taken off guard to the hot guy who is standing in front of her.

These two had such amazing attraction and chemistry from there first meeting. Both are a little taken back with one another it was really cute. They have this cute, flirty banter that keeps them both intrigued by the other. The more time they spend with one another dancing the more they tend to learn about one another.

Their first kiss was so unexpected but sweet. Since they are working together Callie basically says it can't happen again but then she just can't get him out of her head. I liked as the story progressed they acted a little like teenagers stealing kisses and fooling around in the backseat of Bennetts truck.

This book didn't really seem like all the other football/small town books that are out there. I thought the whole dancing with the Stars concept with Callie teaching him how to dance was a really fun and interesting idea. It added to the storyline and didn't bore me.

Each of the characters were likable and I liked how Bennett was there for his students and wanted to help them no matter what the situation was. The more I got into the book the more I enjoyed this series. Since I didn't read book one I will HAVE to do that just to get a better feel for some of these characters.

Overall this book was everything I loved and enjoyed in a contemporary romance. I really have high hopes for this series. I can't wait for the next book to find out what happened with Lindsay and Derek. And I can't wait to catch up with Anne, Mike, Bennett and Callie again.
