Last Chance Hero Review

What happens when your heart is intercepted before you even know it's in play?

The inhabitants of Last Chance, New Mexico, could not be more pleased. Dr. Jessica McLeod has opened an office right on Main Street. Andy Ryan, the best athlete the little town ever produced, has ended his short career in the NFL and has come home to coach the mighty Pumas of Last Chance High. Unfortunately, Dr. Jess immediately gets off on the wrong foot when she admits that she's never seen a football game, isn't really interested in doing so, and, in fact, doesn't know a first down from a home run. Meanwhile, Coach Ryan is discovering that it's not easy to balance atop the pedestal the town has put him on. When this unlikely pair is drawn together over the future of a young player--whose gifts may lie in the laboratory rather than on the football field--they begin to wonder if they might have a future together as well.

Last Chance Hero by Cathleen Armstrong was a cozy read. At times I felt like it was going to slowly and got bored but I loved the characters so that kept me interested. Last Chance Hero is a predictable light romantic read that I feel is all about the characters. The ending was a little too abrupt for me but overall I enjoyed Last Chance Hero and its wonderful cast of characters. If you're looking for a cozy romance to read while snuggle up tight with a hot cup of coffee (or tea) then this is the book for you.

4.8 out of 5. An enjoyable Afternoon Snack. 

I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.


  1. Thanks Hannah! I stumbled upon your blog searching for new book suggestions. This is great. I really appreciate the suggestion! I’ll have to check out Last Chance Hero.

    I wanted to pass along one my pastor recommended to me. It’s the #1 bestseller on religious fiction, so maybe you’ve already heard of it. But I can’t stop thinking about. It’s a fantastic collection of short stories. It’s called Pieces Like Pottery. I really can’t recommend it enough. I would love to see your review of it at some point!

    1. Thank you, Mike. I'll have to look into it.

  2. Of course Hannah. Thanks for your review. It was great! And definitely check it out. I enjoyed it at least. I thought the stories were great.
