Rebecca Stone is smart and driven. She has dreamed of being a sports reporter for her entire life, and now that she has landed her very first job at a TV station in tiny Curtinville, Texas, her dream is starting to become a reality.
The only problem? Curtinville may be small in size, but it’s home to plenty of big secrets.
It doesn’t take long for Rebecca to figure out that money, power, and greed are the names of the game here. Everything that the beloved Curtinville Cats do on the football field is overshadowed by the dirty deals that are going on behind the scenes. The Cats aren’t the only ones who are good at drawing up trick plays. Some of the biggest names in town play dirty tricks every single day.
Rebecca arrives in Curtinville believing that hard work is the key to earning respect and building a successful career. She’s so serious about her work that she refuses to give in to her feelings for the steamy ex-quarterback — even though he has her squarely in his sights. But as she soon learns, doing the right thing doesn’t always pay off. In fact, in Curtinville, it can be the easiest way to land in some serious hot water.
How far will Curtinville’s elite go to keep their secrets hidden?
How many consequences will Rebecca suffer for exposing the truth?
Will all of those trick plays crush her dreams forever?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always dreamed of being a fiction writer. I’ve also always been fascinated by the Texas football scene, so I decided to combine the two. The end result is “Trick Play”!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Rebecca is alot like me — just in a different industry. She’s passionate, hard-working, and willing to put in the time and effort to make her dreams come true. I guess you could say that Brock is my ideal guy — gorgeous, athletic, loyal, and caring.
About the Author:
Author. Dreamer. Entrepreneur.
That’s how Jessica Kelly describes herself. Just like the main character in her first book, “Trick Play”, Jessica believes that hard work is the key to success. Luckily, though, creating new characters and new plot twists doesn’t feel like work to her! Jessica has always had a passion for writing, and she has dreamed of becoming a successful author for more years than she can count.
So what about the “Entrepreneur” part?
That proves just how serious Jessica is about turning her dream into reality. Her goal isn’t to write a book or two in her spare time. Instead, she’s focused on building a successful writing career from the ground up. She’s not content to JUST have a dream. She’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it come true.
Jessica began living the dream the moment she started writing “Trick Play”. When she’s not dreaming up new story ideas, this native Floridian can be found spending quality time with friends and family, soaking up the sun on the beach, and — of course — reading.
