Book Review: Coach Me

Coach-Me-Shanora-Williams

Blurb

When I met Amber Lakes, I had no idea that she’d become a shining star in my dark, miserable life.
Her smile was never supposed to warm my heart, and the sight of her tears was never supposed to make me want to hunt down the person who’d caused them.
We were never supposed to touch, or kiss, or do so many dirty things on campus that I knew could jeopardize my career…
None of it was supposed to happen because she’s the student – my athlete – and I’m her college track coach. 
I could lose everything by being with her, but I’ve fallen too damn hard, and despite how big the risks are, it’s too late to turn back now.


Coach Me by Shanora Williams is a sweet, little bit of taboo, romance. Taboo because you have the track coach who doesn’t want to catch feelings for one of his athletics. Amber Lakes is an all-star track athlete who gets a chance at college track at BU University. Even though this is a basically “white” college, she doesn’t let that hinder her and goes for it anyways. Amber is of course, bullied by her fellow competitors and you get to see how she reacts, or doesn’t. The bullies are out to get her in this book and make to ruin her chances of running before the season is even started.

Coach Torres is trying to stay away. He knows nothing can happen. He needs to stay away. DON’T catch any feelings Torres, it won’t end well for you! JK, this book has an HEA that you are going to love!

I love that this books brings up discrimination and how both Amber and Coach Torres handles it. We don’t get to see this in enough books and Shanora did such a good job. This book has the steam, the feelings, the, WHY moments. LOVE it!
