Haven Haggarty is woefully inept when it comes to men and matters of the heart. Successful in her job as an image consultant with an up-and-coming company, she wishes she could enjoy as much triumph in her dating efforts. When she falls hard for a handsome wide receiver, Haven realizes she needs to tackle her fears or miss the opportunity to experience once-in-a-lifetime love.
Brody Jackson lives and breathes football. As a wide receiver for a popular arena team, he's determined to make it back to the NFL. Cocky and confident, he doesn't have the time or energy to be bothered with a serious relationship until he's blindsided by a sweet, naive girl who breaks through his defenses. He has to decide if he'll let go of his dreams or fumble his chance to win Haven's heart.

You don't have to be a football fan to enjoy LOVE AT THE 20-YARD LINE. I'm not a big sports fan, so when I know a book is centered on a sport, I automatically think the author is going to throw out terms that I don't know and I won't be able to follow the story. This doesn't happen in this book. Yes, football is important in this story, but the storyline was easy to follow and the author did a great job at keeping me interested.
Haven and Brody are not out there looking for love, but when they least expect it, it sneaks up on them. Brody is a football player whose mind is firmly on making the NFL and Haven is a consultant who gets roped into attending the football games for her job. Once Haven and Brody lock eyes, there is an immediate interest in each other.
I enjoyed the characters getting to know each other and eventually falling in love. This is a clean romance, so there is no detailed descriptions of them being together, but this book doesn't need all that. Shanna Hatfield did a marvelous job at making me fall in love with her characters and I didn't feel as though I was missing anything.
I was a little worried how the characters were going to survive as a couple, but this author gave me a perfect ending. Overall, LOVE AT THE 20-YARD LINE is an enjoyable read that will keep you occupied for a couple hours.
