I'd love to read more sports romance stories from this author.
**See goodreads.com/NMmomof4 for my full review with spoilers**
Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Cordy and Trent's story. Cordy is the token female on the football team as the 3rd string kicker. After some injuries and a big fail, Cordy finds herself needing to work hard to earn the 1st string position. Trent sees this as an opportunity to fix the mistake that separated them 2 years earlier, and offers to help her out with her kick. Old feelings return, and they end up together. There is some family and friend drama and some hot sexy times...but they get a HFN ending.
POV: This alternated between Cordy and Trent's POV.
Overall Pace of Story: Good. I thought it flowed well, and I never skimmed.
Instalove: No. There were some strong residual feelings left from before their separation though.
H rating: 4 stars. Trent. I liked him. He was in a bad situation when they separated, but more than made up for it later IMO.
h rating: 3 stars. Cordy. She was just ok *shrugs*
Sadness level: Low. No tissues needed.
Heat level: Moderate. This was hotter than I expected, but I don't think that the scenes were at the point that they took away from the storyline.
Descriptive sex: Yes
Safe sex: Kind of. Mentions of birth control. No mention of std status that I remember or previous practices for the H.
OW/OM drama: Yes
Sex scene with OW or OM: No
Closure: This had decent closure with a cute epilogue. It's what I would call a HFN ending, but some might be just fine with it and call it a HEA.
How I got it: It was part of my kindle unlimited subscription.
Kicked is a different read for me, I am not use to picturing a woman in a male dominated sport. Trying to get my mind around different scenarios ( locker room and the football field) took some time. It did not hinder the story one bit because I was grabbed from the beginning with the characters.
Trent Carrington, star quarterback, gorgeous, and his patient heart grabbed me from the start. With having a female third string kicker on the team, that did not seem to bother him. The fact that she is the one that he truly loved and broke her heart 2 yrs ago may be a problem to the team. Trent doesn't see it that way, having her close and willing to do anything to win her back is the only thing he has in mind.
Cordelia " Cordy" Baxter is surround by sweaty men on the football field but her eyes seem to only be on the star quarterback Trent. His smile, body and his sweet remarks may not be enough to undo the hurt that he caused the night he broke her heart. Cordy needs to try and earn a full scholarship and the only way she can do it is by becoming the teams first- string kicker. Trent is more than willing to help her get that position, but will all that time practicing bring them together or be a reminder of the pain she is not willing to go through again?
I was given a ARC for a honest review and I truly enjoyed reading Kicked. It has that young second chance romance with lots of steamy passion. This story had me laughing, heartbroken, furious, heated, smiling and at times on the edge of suspense. The characters surrounding Cordelia and Trent are memorable. I love the football aspect part of the story but it does go beyond that, the story of their family, friends, insecurities, and the renewal of a love that was set aside years ago. It is a 5 star read!
