Publisher's Summary

When Harper Duquaine's no-nonsense approach to work unintentionally ruffles the wrong feathers at her new job, she joins her co-workers fantasy football league to prove she can hang with the guys. Only problem: she doesn't know a sleeper from a keeper (or any of the other lingo thrown her way).

Embroiled in a world of lineups, stats, and trades, Harper's quest to make nice topples when her competitive streak emerges. And her promise to herself that she'll be a strong, independent woman and leave the drama and heartache behind is seriously tested when she catches the attention of her two biggest competitors: J.J., a local celebrity determined to win a fantasy championship, and Brook, the mild-mannered coach who seems too good to be true. Both threaten her resolve to remain single and, more importantly, her chances at winning the prize pool.

With a slew of conflicting advice in her real and fantasy worlds, Harper must figure out how to play the game and come out a winner.

    "Enjoyable Sports Romance :-)"

    To be honest I've heard about Fantasy Football but I didn't know much about it. This book takes Fantasy Football to a whole new level. It's a flirty and romantic sports adventure that takes an unfamiliar subject and makes it an interesting and fun story. If you love sports romances put this one on your list for sure. :-).

    Note: This one does have adult language and non-explicit sex.

    I would like to thank the author, narrator or publisher for providing me this review copy in exchange for my honest review.

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    "Great Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book; this is the first book in the Queen of the League series written by Laura Chapman and narrated by Annie Abate. When Harper Duquaine's no-nonsense approach to work unintentionally ruffles the wrong feathers at her new job, she joins her co-workers fantasy football league to prove she can hang with the guys. The problem is she has no clue when it comes to football. Embroiled in a world of lineups, stats, and trades, Harper's quest to make nice topples when her competitive streak emerges. And her promise to herself that she'll be a strong, independent woman and leave the drama and heartache behind is seriously tested when she catches the attention of her two biggest competitors: J.J., a local celebrity determined to win a fantasy championship, and Brook, the mild-mannered coach who seems too good to be true. Both threaten her resolve to remain single and, more importantly, her chances at winning the prize pool.<br/><br/>The narrator Annie Abate did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. <br/><br/>If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator. <br/><br/>This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Boom.<br/>

    "Sweet sports romance"
    Would you listen to First & Goal again? Why?

    I would not listen to this story again. While I found the story enjoyable I wasn't overly fond of the narration and it wasn't a story I would listen to/read again. It just didn't take me away


    Would you be willing to try another book from Laura Chapman? Why or why not?

    I would be willing as I think there are a lot of good bones to her writing style


    Did Annie Abate do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Annie did although I found her voice a little whiny in parts and that was difficult for me to listen to


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No :(

    "Fantatsticly flirty"
    What did you love best about First & Goal?

    It really captures the passion of a newly discovered fandom. In this case it was football but anyone who try's something new and ends up enjoying it can relate to this story.


    What other book might you compare First & Goal to and why?

    I don't really know of any comparison.


    What does Annie Abate bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings a flirty vibe with her narration and I swear you can picture the character rolling her eyes just by the tone of the narration, her exaggerations and personality really make the character lively.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Football and flirting.


    Any additional comments?

    What I really loved is how Harper made me think of my crazy football fanatic Aunt who will totally jump up and down on the furniture when her team scores. But more than that I loved how she learns to not be so serious, and ultimately gets that it's just a game. Her romance was cute and Brook was a total sweetheart...JJ was not my favorite character, but you be the judge for yourself. I would recommend this book, though I would add a warning that there is a good amount of football technical jargon, though a lot of it was explained and you don't really need to understand it all to enjoy the story. I obtained my audiobook copy for free from audiobook boom for my unbiased review.
