#2 Playing with the Boys

(Pretty Tough Book #2) In the second book in the Pretty Tough series, new girl Lucy Malone tries out for Beachwood soccer, but despite her amazingly accurate kick, fails to make the team. When the Coach points out that varsity football is looking for a new kicker, Lucy is skeptical. Football? Isn’t that a boys’ game?

On the gridiron Lucy discovers that she feels strong—in control for the first time since her mother died. She loves football. She actually wants to play. Will Lucy cave in to the pressure of those who don’t want her on the team? Or will she prove she’s pretty tough after all?

Being pursued by the most popular boys at school? Amazing! Running in the other direction to avoid being tackled by them? Not!

In the third Pretty Tough book, Taylor Thomas is a total all-star on the court. Off-court, not so much. She may be model-tall, gorgeous and quite a catch, but try telling her that. With a showcase game and playoffs fast approaching, Taylor’s basketball career is totally on the line. She doesn’t know which way to turn first when her BFF ropes her into a fashion show and she finds herself torn between Zach, the super-tall, super-off limits basketball star and Matt, the super-sweet guy from her English class. Can Taylor stop her head from spinning long enough to strike a pose, land the boy of her dreams, and win the game?
