The Coach and the Professor...
Carolyn Trent's logically mapped journey to becoming the perfect professor of English is hijacked the day she is appointed academic advisor to the Ashton University men's basketball team.
Especially when she meets C.J. Draper, a former pro player now the team's infuriating, irreverent, and sexy new coach, and discovers he's the hijacker of her careful plans. She thoroughly disapproves of her beloved Ashton's jump to big-time basketball, but how can she say no to safeguarding the academic progress of the players?
As for saying no to the coach . . . surely she'll get better with more practice.
And there will be plenty of practice, because they’ll have to work together all seasons for the benefit of the players.
C.J. has never let adversity stop him — if he had he'd never have gotten this far. He's not about to start by letting enticing Professor Trent derail him. He has goals. Ashton’s small-town campus is just one rung on his ladder up.
If he chooses to rattle Carolyn's ivory tower, it's for the fun of seeing the fiery woman beneath the marble-cool exterior . . . isn't it?
When logic clashes with ambition in the game of love, will anyone win?
Hoops, Book 6 in USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's The Wedding Series, also introduces you to a younger version of Brad . . . before the all-grown-up Brad, now an assistant coach, volunteers to be Katie's improbable knight in The Surprise Princess. Despite what it will cost him.

Excellent book! Very well thought out insightful characters that keep you going
Professor Carolyn Trent worked hard to get where she was. At twenty-eight she was a success in her field. Her downfall was seeing things black and white and striving so hard to do her best...she left fun and enjoying life behind. She loved Ashton University and didn't like changes, especially if they involved athletics.
