Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.
He’s the newly drafted quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words.
Ready to score.
I’m an athletic intern, and the coach’s daughter.
Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.
The NFL is full of rules. Rules I’ve never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched–until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don’t-give-a-f*ck attitude.
After I almost injure my father’s star player, I volunteer to make sure he’s in top shape. At first, it’s hell. I don’t like his cockiness, his easy smile. Don’t like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.
That doesn’t stop me from wanting him. He’s meant to be a distraction–something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I’m forced to leave football behind forever.
I know what we’re doing will lead nowhere good. I know we’re crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.
None of that matters.
But maybe it should.
Rules aren’t meant to be broken.
Or are they?

I received an advanced copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review!
This book was a cute little read with lots of steaminess thrown in. Lucas is an up and coming quarterback and it taking part in summer training. Gillian is an athletic intern and the coaches daughter. When she and Lucas met there is an almost instant attraction between them, which leads them to agree to have a secret fling that ends when the summer ends.
This book is told from in the first person, from the dual perspective of Gillian and Lucas. I thought it was well written and flowed really nicely.
I liked both the main characters, and I enjoyed the chemistry they shared. I liked the speed at which the story developed, I do love a slow burn romance and this really ticked the box for me. I also really liked the forbidden romance element, I enjoyed all the sneaking around – somehow its always more steamy!
I thought the back stories that Gillian and Lucas were good and gave their character’s lots of depth. Particularly Lucas because he really has had to fight his way to the top.
There was a lot of (American) football talk in this book, which I found quite interesting being from the UK.
To finish I loved how Kim Karr wrapped up the story. it was perfect and cute and just everything you want from a romance novel.
The Bottom Line:
If you like sports romance then this book is a no-brainer! GO PRE-ORDER!
My Rating: 4/5 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
