This is a sports story revolving around soccer. There are not a ton of action scenes and when they do grace the pages, they are not extremely long. I don't follow soccer and was confused with some of the terminology. I know that I've looked up what a hat trick is before several times, but for some reason it never sticks. Regardless, I was still able to follow along OK.
There was too much focus made on the fact that Kenzie was a super fan. With a mega crush on Sutton Flores. The author tried to have us believe that Kenzie liked Sutton for all the right reasons. But then would repeatedly fall back to mentioning the infatuation. It felt more like an unbalance to me. Especially since their beginning was initiated by attraction and not necessarily anything deeper.
The best part of this book is in the middle when Sutton and Kenzie are juggling getting to know one another but trying to keep things discreet. They have a lot of sweet moments together.
My biggest pet peeve happened in this book. I will never, ever, understand why anyone outside of junior high would ask someone else to be their girlfriend. There are so many alternatively more mature ways of locking things down.
I've seen a lot of reviewers that were not pleased with the sexual harassment aspect of this story. I didn't mind it. Since it was somewhat recent news as far as USA gymnastics goes, it felt relevant and like something that could happen. I'm not sure the execution was on point, though. There was something off, although I couldn't explain to you what that is.
Also, Sutton's immature way of handling things felt contrived to bring angst and drama at the 3/4 mark of the book. I suppose you could say that it is within her character since she was described to be a bit childish. But I thought she was more childish in a playful way. Not in an idiotic way.
Overall, this was just OK for me. I like sports and I like romance. It ticks off those two boxes. But the fact that Kenzie was a super fan prevented me from connecting with them as a couple the way I would have liked to. There were definitely some sweet moments. Enough for me to be OK recommending this.
I recommend to those who enjoy reading romance, sports, soccer, hot butch athletes, red hair, and nipple pinching.
I received an ARC from Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
Kenzie Shaw and Sutton Flores are the two main characters in this book. Kenzie is a rookie who has been drafted to a professional team out of New Jersey. She is extremely talented and has a bright future. Nearing the end of her career, Sutton Flores has played for this team and is one of the top women soccer players in the world.
As a teen and college player, Kenzie had a huge crush on Sutton. When she is drafted out of college to play for the team that her “crush” is playing on, she is excited and scared that she might not play well in front of Sutton. As the story progresses, readers will see they are attracted to each other.
I have enjoyed Ms. Ullrich’s books in the past and found this one to be a good read. The plot is interesting, and the characters are thoroughly developed. Ms. Ullrich has done a great job in researching the sport of soccer. The secondary characters added depth to the story. At times, however, I found the pace of the book to be a little slow. I believe the harassment conflict which wove itself through the last half of the book seemed to take away from the romance and the soccer story being told.
I rate this romance as 4 out of 5 stars. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a sports romance.
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Regardless, I loved it. The read itself was great and I was able to get lost in the relationship of the two MCs, their teammates, and the beautiful game of soccer. Fans of Ullrich i think will enjoy this (I haven't read too many books by this author), fans of romance will enjoy this, and fans of the soccer will enjoy it. In other words, more likely than not, if you read this you will enjoy it :) 4.75 stars
