Refuse to Lose by Alison Mello
Series: A Coach's Love #1
Genres: Sports Romance
I thought I was helping a friend, but instead I only managed to get myself in a heap of trouble which left me with two options. Coach little league as part of community service…or face jail time.
So here I am…coaching little league, a project I wasn’t looking forward to—that’s until I see Stella at the field with her son. Unfortunately for me it takes a lot longer than I’d hoped for her to give me the time of day.
Yet, now that I’ve caught her attention, things are much more complicated than I thought. Who knew juggling a struggling friend, community service, a team bully and a girlfriend would be this hard?
But I won’t let it get me down. Someone once told me the secret to success, and come hell or high water I’ll show everyone around me that I…
…refuse to lose.

This was my first time reading anything by Alison Mello. I’m not a big sports romance fan but I decided to take a chance on this was and was pleasantly surprised. It’s not fully of technical terms or anything like that. This turned out to be one of the better second chance romance books I have had the pleasure of reading.
