Top 100 Amazon Bestseller -- 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."

REVIEW

 

This was my first R.S. Grey novel and I cannot wait to read more!!! This book was super cute and funny. I love a good sports romance but I haven’t read one were both main characters are actively involved in the same sport. Seeing the characters training together and understanding each other’s commitments, sacrifices and goals was an awesome reading experience.

I loved Kinsley’s snarky wit! Her and Becca’s friendship is one of my all time favorites. Although we got to see a lot of Becca and Penn’s relationship through Kinsley and Liam’s story, I would’ve loved to have read their story in a separate book. But who can complain about a good Epilogue?? Or an epilogue to the epilogue…because she can.

One bit that I didn’t care for was the audio book. When I grab a good deal on an ebook and the audio upgrade is reasonable, I jump on that bitch! The narrator turned all the female characters into valley girls. Ugh! Nails, meet chalkboard. Now I wouldn’t have minded this for Tara’s character but for crying out loud, the narration for Becca’s parts were almost cringe worthy.

My only regret was not buying this in paperback! This would definitely be my go to beach vacation read!

About R.S. Grey

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
