“Her sharp voice fit her, as if she had edges he’d injure himself on if he were not careful.”
“When he touched her hand she flinched, her need to make him go away, yet never leave, intense beyond imagining.”
“You won’t be satisfied until we’re both sitting around our parents’ house, old and covered with cats, bitching about how we got screwed over by men.”
“A small corner of her heart seemed to flex, like an atrophied muscle,”
“He might want her for some of the wrong reasons, but so many more of them were right. She represented so much he missed about his life, in an utterly bizarre way, but still…”
“And she disappeared as if someone hit a delete button on a computer screen,”
“I love you but don’t get a big head over it or anything.”
Red Card is a heartbreaking story. It contains several love stories, as well as one of devastation and grief. It turned on a dime, stood me on my head, and pulled me inside out. I adored Metin but also frequently wanted to part his butt cheeks with my dainty foot. The story was angsty, high drama, sizzling sensuality, and painfully real. Ms. Crowe’s characters continue to fascinate, antagonize, lure, and bait me. They squeeze my heart, have me grinding my teeth, make me smile, and cause me to gasp and require rehydration and extra laundry. How she can trick me into caring for a bitter, cold, petulant, hostile, and bossy woman whose own father describes her as having a “terrifying personality” is… stupefying and mind boggling, yet Liz Crowe has that down to an art form, and uses fifty cent words while doing so. I can’t stop now – I see there are currently 2 more books in this series. I fear I have a new addiction…
“Before she could protest, he slanted his lips over hers and lost himself in her once again. She clung to him, opening her lips to his. His body burned, skin flamed from the inside out, his ears deafened by a roar of need. He had to have her, now, had to put his mark on her before she escaped again.”
This story was going along and I was perfectly happy but then there was a twist. I had a bad feeling and sure enough, she got me. I was crying and there were feelings everywhere. This story is very emotional, and I loved all of the characters although they frustrated me at times.
If you like stories that aren’t always wrapped up perfect with a little bow, you’ll enjoy reading Red Card by Liz Crowe. Working through their issues made the story worth it all in the end.
Metin is the hotshot Turkish soccer player who could have any woman he wants, and has had them. Before now they've always been of the superficial model-like variety which has become boring. His first meeting with the tall, athletic, and sturdy-looking Alicia intrigues him. He admires her spirit and love of soccer which she desperately wants to play in the big leagues. He's sexy, charming, and oozes confidence except in his dealings with her. Though she's not easy to win over, he's immensely attracted and sets out wholeheartedly to woo her in a whirlwind romance that is super steamy but very rocky. Just when things look to be perfect between them fate decides to intervene and changes the meaning of love and family forever.
Alicia was raised by her sister ever since her mother died when she was very young. She's never been girly and devotes her life to soccer to the exclusion of all else. Wanting to play professionally has her angry and jealous of those male players who are making millions. Her initial meeting with Metin therefore is full of aggression which ultimately morphs into attraction and a relationship that's full of sexual tension, steamy interludes, and a lot of verbal warfare that's really HOT.Read more ›
This book is an emotional roller coaster that takes you through the highs & lows of life! The story revolves around Metin (a famous soccer player) & Alicia (a woman who just wants to play soccer professionally).
This book is part of a series, but the books in the The Black Jack Gentlemen series are standalone focusing on people associated with a new expansion football (soccer) team in Detroit, USA. If the other books in the series are anything like this one then they are sexy, intense reads that can have you crying, laughing & yelling at your book all within a short time!
I am giving this book 4.5 stars since it kept me hooked enough to read it in one sitting of 6 hours! (I know, when do you get 6 hours to sit down? For me it was 2am - 8am!!!! I was jet-lagged this week from flying back from NYC to Melbourne). I had been to bed around 7pm the night before & just couldn't sleep! I had 4 days off before going back to work, so it just seemed right to read! After I picked up this book there was no way I was going back to bed anytime soon either!
The characters are well developed with life-like sometimes irritating characteristics that make it all the more believable! I highly recommend you pick up and read this book if you like intense romances with a lot of angst! Don't expect it to be an easy read but it's worthwhile in the end!
I was invited to be part of the Blog Tour for Red Card (The Black Jack Gentlemen #2) a part of a new series by Liz Crowe which I am very happy I agreed to! You can read my full entry at Bec's Book Blog.
