Coach Asa Dawson has fallen wildly in love only twice in his life.
First with football.
Then with Scott Callaway.
But Scott isn’t just the one who got away.
He’s the one person—the one man—Asa hoped might finally show him how all-consuming passion could be.
Instead, fate (and football) intervened and they never got the chance to explore their attraction. Their friendship ended in ruins, Scott left, and Asa’s been torn between hating him and loving him for the last seven years.
Asa doesn’t think he’ll ever see him again, but when his bad habits catch up to him and he doesn’t have a choice but to accept help, he’s horrified—and exhilarated—to learn Scott’s been hired to assist him.
With the final stretch of the Piranhas season falling during the holidays, maybe what Asa and Scott have needed this whole time was a little Christmas magic to remind them the most important job isn’t to win the season—but to finally win each other’s hearts.
There was true mastery in this author’s writing as she took her readers through every emotion these men felt and the admissions of heartbreak, loss, and love. ~ Sharon – Simply Love Books
I think anyone who has been reading Beth Bolden’s Piranhas’ series has been waiting for this story. Coach Asa has been so supportive of all the relationships his players have entered but there has always been an inherent sadness about him that wasn’t about his ex-wife. I mean I think we all knew this had to do with another man his former best friend, his son Beau’s godfather, and his former coaching partner, Scott and at the beginning of this book, we found out in flashbacks what brought on their estrangement and it was heartbreaking as it was one man’s sacrifice in order for the other one to go on and achieve big things. I loved these two men and I commend author Beth Bolden for letting us see their friendship, the moment it became more for a man who always considered himself straight, their heartbreak, their anger, and they way they moved past it to finally be together. There was true mastery in this author’s writing as she took her readers through every emotion these men felt and the admissions of heartbreak, loss, and love.
Winning the Season was an outstanding book of two men; one who has loved the other for decades and the other finding everything he’d been looking for in a relationship with his best friend and the man who owned his heart for the last eight years despite the hurt that kept them apart. Add in the characters from the previous books including Asa’s son Beau, and his partner, a bit of holiday cheer and this book was a feel good romance that was hard to put down.
