Storyline

Laurel Welk is an out of work aspiring fashion designer who lands a job as a personal assistant to superstar quarterback Danny Holland. Holland's been sidelined with an injury and the last thing he wants is a female assistant, particularly one who knows nothing about football. But the two opposites strike a bargain and agree to work together on a trial basis. While Laurel struggles to master her job, knowing she's in way over her head, Danny struggles to maintain his star image even though he's concerned his injury might impact his career. Things get even more complicated when employer and employee start to notice there's more to the other than meets the eye - and what they find is love on the sidelines. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Wonderful Film
9 April 2016 | by scienceofexcellenceSee all my reviews

I love football movies and this took me by surprise. The characters are wonderful, the story is great, and the ending a surprise. It was great to see the football characters off the field and to follow their lives. The dialogue is brilliant, funny, and keeps you enthralled from beginning to end. You will love this movie. I was not expecting to laugh and cry and found the emotional journey very well done. The acting was excellent and the they did justice to the excellent dialogue. I won't give away the surprise ending but this movie will leave you feeling you want to see more of these characters. I hope Hallmark is planning a sequel or a series.
