"The spice was OFF. THE. CHARTS."

trope arrows

Julep Lee was the coach’s daughter. She was completely off limits.

And yet I knew right then and there that I had to have her.

“I’m off limits.”

“I’m just talking to you. I’m not allowed to talk to you?”

“You’re flirting with me. There’s a difference.”

“Someone’s full of themself.”

Her little mouth popped open, brows furrowing as she took a step into my space.

“It’s never going to happen, QB.”

“Hey, I’m just as off-limits as you are,” I quipped back, testing that delicate space between us. “So maybe you should take a step back and avoid looking out your window if me being shirtless is a temptation.”

As if she just realized how close she was to me, her gaze dropped to my bare chest.

I flexed my pec, and she scoffed, taking a giant step backward.

Editorial Reviews


★★★★★ "Quarterback Sneak is the perfect forbidden sports romance! This book gives all the spice, football, and feels. A strong heroine, a swoony hero, and that delicious forbidden tension that Kandi writes so damn well. A top read for me this year!— Elsie Silver, Amazon #1 Bestselling Author

★★★★★ "It is currently 4 AM and I've just finished this book in a single sitting. I physically could not put it down.
This isn't just a sports romance, it's a forbidden romance between the quarterback and coach's daughter and it is truly TOP. TIER." — Bella Lee, ARC Recipient

★★★★★ "I thought no Kandi Steiner man could make me fall in love more than Clay Johnson (Blind Side.) I was wrong. Very wrong.
Holden was a DREAM." — Isabella, ARC Recipient

★★★★★ "Quarterback Sneak is definitely
one of my top reads of 2022 and the absolute perfect read for fall. Kandi Steiner quite simply NEVER disappoints." — Stacie R., ARC Recipient

★★★★ "
PHENOMENAL. This book was intoxicating. I swear anything Kandi writes is laced with drugs that does not allow you to stop reading till the final sentence." — Jordan, ARC Recipient
★★★★ "
Y'all. This book had me in a chokehold from the very beginning. If I was working or doing something where I couldn't read, all I could think about were these characters. I couldn't wait to get back to my kindle so I could immerse myself back in the story. I love when I connect with a book like that!" — thatashtyngirl, ARC Recipient
★★★★★ "Quarterback Sneak is
the perfect angsty and emotional sports romance. Holden is EVERYTHING." — Monica, ARC Recipient

★★★★★ "
Mark my words, this book is A MUST READ ALERT, A M.U.S.T! ...with every new book I'm falling deep and deeper in love with the world that Kandi Steiner is delivering." — Marta Bo, ARC Recipient

★★★★★ "
The spice was just so freaking good. The film room scene was just perfection. Holden can have whatever he wants." — Cassie, ARC Recipient

★★★★★ "I flew through this book, read it in one day. Couldn't put it down. I absolutely loved Holden and Julep!
I had high hopes for this one after Blind Side and this did not disappoint!" — Katherine Emm, ARC Recipient

★★★★★ "Where do I even begin with this one? Holden and Julep maybe my favorite Kandi couple to date. This book was so much more than I thought it was going to be
, I knew it would be good, but I never expected it to be full of so much depth and heart." — Janelle Pegram, ARC Recipient

★★★★★ "
I think this might top blind side and how is that even possible. I ate this s**t up let me just start by that. I couldn't put the book down!" — Booksugarrr, ARC Recipient

★★★★★ "Holden and Julep are
what angst is all about." — Karrie Lynn, ARC Recipient
★★★★★ "I'm officially a Kandi Steiner fan. [...]
one of my favorite books of 2022." — Leticia (jerseygirl), ARC Recipient
★★★★★ "
If you loved Blindside (book 2) you're going to love this even more! As for spice... If you're familiar with Miss Kandi's work you know damn well she ain't shy with spice. Besties she basically wrapped this up red satin lace ribbon and said, 'MERRY F*CKING EARLY SMUTTYCHRISTMAS!'" — NoGoodDeeds (D.), ARC Recipient
★★★★★ "I have become such a huge fan of this author.
Seriously, her books are ADDICTING." — Brittany Stevens, ARC Recipient
★★★★★ "One thing I greatly appreciated in QS was that there was no big falling out/toxicity between Julep and Holden. Many romances have a third act break up because of a fight or some issue within their relationship, but this book didn't have that.
It's very refreshing to read a romance like that." — Janae (Evergreen Reads), ARC Recipient
★★★★★ "Okay,
I didn't think I could love a book boyfriend more than Clay in Blind Side, but Holden said hold my beer. I love Kandi Steiner books — she has the amazing ability to balance romance and serious/real life topics that make you just feel so much for all of the characters. She is an auto-buy author for me! This book was everything." — Brittanys_in_wonderland, ARC Recipient
★★★★★ "OMG. Obsessed.
The spice. The banter. The angst. Just EVERYTHING. Holden & Julep's story was a freaking masterpiece." — Amber, ARC Recipient

Kandi Steiner is a #1 Amazon Bestselling Author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. Her love for writing started at the ripe age of 10, and in 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.”

She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, planning her next adventure, or pole dancing (yes, you read that right). She enjoys live music, traveling, hiking, yoga, playing with her fur babies and soaking up the sweetness of life.
