    I had heard some great things about this book and I love that cover, so I was pretty eager to get into it. I really liked Charlie. She?s smart and knows that she?s good and doesn?t try to diminish that. Connor was okay. He?s pretty stand-off-ish and spent the majority of th...

    4.5 stars What an enjoyable story Sidelined was. Suzanne Beltsar wrote a smart and sassy story that was funny in places, serious in others but a very pleasant surprise from a new-to-me author. Charlie had to have a chip on her shoulder being a woman in a man?s world. She?s made ...

    3.5 rounding up to 4 stars. A follow up to the first novel in the series, Trouble Brewing, Sidelined follows a different friendship/romantic relationship this time around. This novel focuses on the new head coach for a High School football team, the first female coach they have had. Ob...

    There are times when I feel like the timing is perfect for particular books...this was the case for Sidelined. . Fall is approaching. Of course down here it?s a little further out...but nonetheless it?s heading this way. For me, Fall is football. Enter Sidelined. I really enjoyed...

    Charlie Gibbs has landed a dream job. The head coach of a high schools football team. She can show how amazing she is at her job. But she isn?t met with open arms by the other coaches, especially Conner McGuire. He thought he was going to get the position. Let me tell you, these two ...

    Connor was in line to become the head football coach, when his dream job is handed to a GIRL. The chemistry and rivalry between Connor and Charlie is unreal from the very beginning, and Baltsar creates characters so 3-dimensional it feels like I know them. When what feels inevitable pl...

    I absolutely loved this book. It is full of incredibly strong, kind successful women who love and support each other. The male characters are just as engaging. I appreciated the straightforward, no nonsense dialogue, and realistic situations. Charlie is not the kind of woman to cajole ...

    I really enjoyed the premise of this story. It was very unique and kept me engaged throughout the story. Charlie is a female football coach doing all she can to prove she can do this considered ?mans job.? And, she is not afraid to put others in their place when needed! The rel...

    Even after not having read the first book in this series, I still enjoyed Connor and Charlie?s story and never felt lost about any of the players, or their individual and collective roles...the backstory was minimal but sufficient. This was not a story just about gender inequality, i...

    I wish I could properly express how much I loved this book. It had great friendships and a wonderful romance. However, that is not the only thing that I extremely enjoyed about this book. This book expertly handled how a woman navigates roles and jobs than society has deemed only for m...

    Firstly, thank you so much to Gallery Books and Netgalley for providing my review copy in exchange for review. This book follows a female football coach as she heads into a new job that is dominated by the male gender. I was hoping for love story that also tackled some great topics on ...

    4.5 Stars! I?m generally not a fan of the enemies-to-lovers trope, but Sidelined was great fun to read! Probably because it stuck to an actual plot with real-life issues, instead of being all filled with ?I hate his guts but he?s so hawt? and ?I hate her guts but I want ...

    This book grabbed hold of me and never let go. From the very first page, I was fully invested in Charlie's "new beginning". Charlie's whole life had been built around football, and after realizing she would never be able to break that glass ceiling at the college level, she pursued...

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. If you?re looking for a story with a straight talking, no nonsense, strong heroine, Sidelined is the book for you. One chapter in and I was wanting to wave my fists and shout ?girl power!?. Charlie moves...

    I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. This is a sharp, funny and well observed story about Charlie, a high school football coach and Connor, the assistant coach who resents her for taking the job he?s always wanted. Charlie has skills and experience...

    Woman football coach who kicks but...sign me up! Not just for the girl power aspect, I love an underdog. Charlie with all her accomplishments and skill is still an underdog just because she's a she. In the world of football, woman are less than. Sidelined is a feel good story about a w...

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. If you?re looking for a story with a straight talking, no nonsense, strong heroine, Sidelined is the book for you. One chapter in and I was wanting to wave my fists and shout ?girl power!?. Charlie moves...

    When I read the synopsis for Sidelined, I knew I needed it: a female football coach takes the head coach position at a Minnesota high school, and sparks fly between her and her offensive coordinator. I am admittedly not much of a football fan but I love any book with strong female cha...

    I read this e-arc thanks to netgalley and the publisher in an exchanged for an honest review. Sidelined is about Charlie, the first female football coach in Minnesota and Connor, one of guys who lost the head coaching position to her. This was your typical enemies to lovers book...

    Well no I have to go read Trouble Brewing so I can get Pipers story. Because the side characters were super cute in this. This is a Romcom about Charlie a female football coach, and Connor the Offensive Coordinator. While I did enjoy the story and the characters I?m pretty ticked...

    Now, for the book. It was right up my alley. Charlie Gibb is the first female head coach at a high school. She was not greeted with much enthusiasm from the other coaches on her team. Shocker! One coach in particular, her offensive coordinator Connor, really was not a fan. But y?...

    Now, for the book. It was right up my alley. Charlie Gibb is the first female head coach at a high school. She was not greeted with much enthusiasm from the other coaches on her team. Shocker! One coach in particular, her offensive coordinator Connor, really was not a fan. But y?...
