What started out as a joke— seduce Coach Wilder—soon became a goal she had to score.
With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing nineteen-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He’s a professional soccer player, America’s favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper.
• A face that makes girls weep – check.
• Abs that can shred Parmesan cheese (the expensive kind) – check.
• Enough confidence to shift the earth’s gravitational pull – double check.
Not to mention Liam is strictly off limits . Forbidden. Her coaches have made that perfectly clear. (i.e. “Score with Coach Wilder anywhere other than the field and you’ll be cut from the team faster than you can count his tattoos.”) But that just makes him all the more enticing…Besides, Kinsley’s already counted the visible ones, and she is not one to leave a project unfinished.
Kinsley tries to play the game her way as they navigate through forbidden territory, but Liam is determined to teach her a whole new definition for the term “team bonding.”
I’ve been on a total binge of R.S. Grey books lately and since I love sports romances I figured I’d give this one a shot as well! This is a classic forbidden romance where the stakes are high for both Liam and Kinsley. There is a slight age gap and I was a sucker for the coach/player dynamic because oh myyyy were there some hot moments and loads of teasing. While I really enjoyed the first half of the book, I found the second half circled a lot and it was almost like the author couldn’t decide on what would be the climax and there were tons of moments where it could have ended. Other than that, I really enjoyed this one and you will too if you enjoy books with:
-forbidden romance with a lot of stolen moments at parties and in cars
-strong female friendships that result in a lot of bodily injuries
-reformed soccer bad boys who can’t keep their hands to themselves and won’t share their candy
-camera-shy soccer girls who don’t let the bad guys win
-cute romance subplots
-hilarious moments involving things like Brazilian waxes and lobster bibs
