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.”
A fun & sexy New Adult Romance (age 17+)
This book was entertaining and It was a great escape.
One of the things I liked is the secondary characters. I really enjoyed reading about each one and I felt like they are really part of the story and it wouldn’t be the same without each one of them. Becca is probably my favourite character; She’s just really nice, relatable and I want to be her friend!
For some reason, I felt a little disconnected to the main character Kinsley. I just wasn’t rooting for her . She’s not annoying whatsoever. She makes decisions that I would probably make if I was her, but I just couldn’t find myself to really love her as a protagonist. I don’t hate her though. We’re just really different I guess.
Another thing that I wish was a little different was how Liam was portrayed and how his relationship with Kinsley developed. I felt that their relationship is a bit rushed. I wanted to know more about Liam before he starts this “thing” with Kinsley. Like, they barely know each other and next thing you know, they’re all over each other. It’s kind of a turnoff.
This was supposed to be a romantic comedy, I think. The beginning was a little funny I have to say, but after that, I can’t say the same thing. It was good, but not funny enough that I would call it a romantic comedy.
Now, I’m not a huge fan of long descriptions, but R.S. Grey really amazes me with her writing style. She describes everything so well and that’s one the things that kept me reading and wanting to read her other books.
Now, a lot of people seem to really enjoy this book, so don’t let my 3/5 rating stop you from reading this novel.
