“Smart, sexy, and funny” (Publishers Weekly) contemporary romance writer Rachel Goodman is back with a brand new series about a quarterback trying to score in the most important game of his life—the game of love.

Gwen Lalonde is a rising star in the eyes of the elite restaurateurs of the world. But when her celebrity chef boss and now ex-boyfriend fires her, she finds herself playing a different game. Forced to flee San Francisco and return home to Denver, Gwen lands a spot as the executive chef at Stonestreet’s, a new restaurant owned by NFL golden boy and Colorado Blizzards quarterback Logan Stonestreet. When Logan starts pursuing Gwen romantically, she pulls a classic duck and weave and avoids any advances by throwing herself into reestablishing her reputation in Denver.

But Logan Stonestreet is persistent—he didn’t become one of the best football players in the league by throwing in the towel at the first rejection. Something about Logan’s unwavering determination—and amazing body—keeps Gwen around, and soon there’s more that’s sizzling than just the steak on the grill. Things are getting more serious than either side cares to admit, and when Logan suffers a severe injury in the playoffs, they’re both forced to make game-time decisions. The perfect romance for football fans and foodies alike, Intercepting the Chef is a delicious read that’ll have you hooked until the very last play.

Intercepting the Chef is a story for foodies and sports enthusiasts alike. Rachel Goodman pairs the hot quarterback with the brainy, passionate chef and easily takes readers from the field into the kitchen.

When talented chef Gwen Lalonde loses a prominent position, along with a relationship she thought was stronger, she heads back to Denver to lick her wounds and rise again. As the executive chef at Logan Stonestreet's new restaurant she plans to add her signature touch to the dishes created in memory of his mother. Even though Gwen refuses to be thrown into the spotlight as an opportunist using her feminine wiles to get to the top, Logan is determined to explore the chemistry between them.

Gwen and Logan are like opposite sides of the same coin. While Logan throws his health to the wind in order to put everything he has into leading his team to a Super Bowl victory, Gwen is scared to risk everything for her dreams. Rachel Goodman takes readers through their simmering passion as they learn to find happiness and more than just satisfying futures. Banter between the sassy chef and suave footballer lends the story a humorous edge that breaks up the detailed football language peppered regularly through the story. The How to Score series is just ramping up and I can't wait to see what's next. Hopefully food will still be intertwined within the plot!
