The Substitute by Mickey Miller


Release Date: January 14, 2019


When the NFL goes on strike, Super Bowl champion Peyton O’Rourke ends up back in his hometown as a substitute teacher and high school football coach.
The one thing he didn’t count on?
Fellow elementary school teacher Maddy Cooper being newly single.

She’s the hot girl next door type.

Literally. She’s literally the cute girl who grew up next door to Peyton and his best friend’s (now ex) girl.

And even though he knows he should be with anyone other than Maddy Cooper —

Well you know the drill.

Things are going to get hot. Heavy.

Does Facebook still have an ‘It’s complicated’ button?
Because it’s about to go down.


This was cute. I felt really bad for Maddy in the beginning, but I also wanted to smack her sometimes, especially near the end. Peyton was a delicious male lead, who I really wanted to smack in the beginning, but grew on me towards the end. But really, I saved all my smacks for Michael, the ex. Funny how that worked out. Overall, the journey with both of these characters was really fun. I’ll definitely be checking out more books from this author.
