The Long Game by Elena Armas

"The Long Game is the perfect small town romance if you love Roy Kent from the Apple TV show, Ted Lasso, and a slow-burn rom-com. Adalyn has been exiled after an altercation with the team’s mascot goes viral. Rather than fire her, she’s sent to middle-of-nowhere North Carolina, where she’s tasked with turning around the struggling local soccer team as a way to redeem herself. Her plans crumble upon discovering that the players wear tutus to practice (impractical), and are terrified of Adalyn (counterproductive), and are nine year old kids. Add their famous, but in hiding, ex-pro soccer player coach and let the games begin! I loved the quirky, rural NC town, the characters, of course the romance, and there’s goat yoga too! Armas is quickly becoming one of my favorite romance authors!"
