All Lined Up by Cora Carmack Review

If you have read this blog before then you know that we are big fans of Cora Carmack around here! She has a lovely talent for creating characters that are real and dear to our hearts. In her new novel, All Lined Up, she introduces us to Dallas and Carson. They seem to fit together perfectly, but can they put all the outside forces aside to be together?

In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.

     Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.
      But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.
      Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It's obliterated.Dallas doesn't know Carson is on the team. 
   Carson doesn't know that Dallas is his new coach's daughter. And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel

Sounds awesome right? Well it is! I couldn't wait to get my hands on the ARC of All Lined Up! I finished it in one sitting and I must say---Carson is pretty much perfect! Dallas is great as well, but there was something just so loveable about Carson. Carmack did a wonderful job with all their characters, but she broke the mold with Carson.

I'm a big fan of Carmack's because the level of angst in her stories is low and her characters have wit and true feelings.If you haven't read any of Cora Carmack's work then you are missing out! I would start with All Lined Up or Losing It, which was her first novel. 

Cora Carmack Bio:

She's done a multitude of things in her life-- boring jobs (like working retail), Fun jobs (like working in a theatre), stressful jobs (like teaching), and dream jobs (like writing). She enjoys placing her characters in the most awkward situations possible, and then trying to help them get a boyfriend out of it. Awkward people need love, too.

And here is a picture of Cora Carmack at the Romantic Times Booklover Convention this year in New Orleans! I was able to get my copy of All Lined Up autographed by here!
