This time of year, Sundays find me cheering on my beloved Steelers. I would have swooned at the opportunity to meet one of the players back in the day.
Unlike me, Bethany, the heroine of Making the Play, gets that opportunity. She’s the single mom of a hearing impaired son who worships Grant, an injured player trying to get back in shape so he can return to his career. Also unlike me, Bethany is not impressed by Grant’s celebrity and tries to keep her distance. Her adorable son, however, has no such compunction.
Grant does his best to resist Bethany and her son James. Once he’s cleared by the team physician, he’s leaving town.
It all “plays” out under the watchful gaze of his salt-of-the-earth family and the typical small town where nothing goes unobserved.
My post-game analysis: Kline scores a touchdown.

T. J. KLINE was bitten by the horse bug early and began training horses at fourteen as well as competing in rodeos and winning several rodeo queen competitions but has always known writing was her first love. She also writes under the name Tina Klinesmith. In her spare time, she can be found spending as much time as possible, laughing hysterically, with her husband, teens and their menagerie of pets in Northern California. That is, when she isn’t running around the Gold Country of California researching new stories.
