Not Another Bad Date (Avon Romance) by Rachel Gibson

From the back of the book:

What does a gal have to do to get a good date in this town?

Adele Harris can’t even begin to answer that question. She’s had so many lousy dates that she’s sure she’s cursed. Why else would every man she goes out with suddenly act like he’s lost his mind – and his manners? Adele thought life couldn’t get any more confusing…until she learns the marriage of her seemingly Miss Perfect sister is on the rocks. So she goes back to their hometown to give her a shoulder to cry on, only to run smack into Zach Zemaitis…the one who got away.

Texans love God, family, and football, though not always in that order

Zach, a former pro star, knows all about football. As for the other two, well, he’s doing his best. But when Adele comes charging back into his life – still all lush curves and beautiful, big blue eyes – he wonders if his best is good enough. After all, he did her wrong. Can a woman with her track record ever really believe that he’s serious this time…or is he destined to be another bad date?

This is the forth book a series about 4 author friends. Adele is the author of fantasy books, and she believes she is cursed. Well, she doesn’t really believe it, but she knows that something is definitely wrong with her love life. After 3 years without a good date, Adele is ready to call it quits.  Her sister calls with news of impending divorce and asks Adele to come and help her adjust. Returning home isn’t on Adele’s list of things to do, but she goes anyway. Running into an ex-boyfriend was just something she wasn’t counting on. I really liked this book. With a side story of Zach’s mean late wife trying to get into heaven, the story definitely has some funny moments. The chemistry between Zach and Adele is hot. They seem to catch fire when around each other even though Adele is sure that she wants nothing to do with Zach.
