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.”
Hey babes, Amy here with a review of this deliciously romantic fluffy book. Well, not all fluffy because Kinsley Byrant is a soccer player at a high level and a freaking badass.
I’d totally Crucio her ass. Yeah that’s right, I’d use one of the Unforgivable Curses. Come at me, Ministry of Magic.
So the plot is simple: Kinsley is about to start at ULA after the summer, but during the summer she has soccer practice everyday and her new coach is the one and only bad boy of soccer Liam Wilder. Even the name sounds sexy. Anyway, Kinsley is crushing on Liam real hard and surprise, surprise… Liam likes her back. Whoa, who would have thought?! However, despite the mutual attraction, they can’t be together. The media would have a fit and well… Liam is her coach after all. But let’s be honest here, we both know that there’s going to be stolen kisses and quickies in the office.
Then finally his gaze found mine and he winked, slow and devious, as if he couldn’t help exuding pure sex appeal. And there went my panties instantly in flames. Damnit.
While Kinsley and Liam try to find a way to be together without having to be sneaky, Kinsley also needs to focus on soccer and the Olympic tryouts and on top of that deal with the headbitch aka Tara, who has it as her lifegoal to bully Kinsley off the team.
Was I going to have to start barricading my door every night to ensure she wouldn’t Edward Cullen me? It probably wouldn’t work; she’d just climb in through my window like the angsty vampire did.
I liked this book in a ‘it-was-a-nice-read’ kinda way and not the ‘ohmygodshipshipshipthey’reamazingiwanttohavebabieswithliam’ kinda way. It was nicely written and I liked Kinsley, but I just didn’t like it enough to hardcore fangirl over it. You can feel the sexual tension booming off the pages and Liam and Kinsely make a really cute couple together. They joke around a lot, but they’re also very honest with each other and that’s what you don’t find in a lot of NA books, so I appreciated that for a change.
“Kinsley, I’ve never liked any girl more than I like M&Ms.” I laughed and let my head fall back against the wall. “Am I getting close?” I joked. “I’d say I like you more than regular M&Ms, but you’re going to have to really step it up if you wanna beat out peanut M&Ms.”
So between all the sexy time moments, there were a bunch of funny moments like the one above and that made the book fun to read. If you’re in the mood for something light and fluffy, I can definitely recommend this book.
