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.
Completely off-limits.

You get the picture.

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? 

Available in eBook + paperback formats!

As always, Kim Karr created a swoon-worthy hero and a strong, relatable heroine from beginning to end. I loved Lucas and Gillian! Loved them individually and even more so as a couple. I loved how much they cared for each other to the point that they were willing to risk everything just to spend time together. Dating the coach's daughter was not just off-limits, but Lucas was essentially risking his career, one he had worked very hard for his entire life. He hadn't ended up where he wanted to initially, but he was right where he was meant to be.

Once I got into this book, I was all in. I was invested in Lucas and Gillian and wanted to see how they would figure out their not-so-slight (at all) predicament. I loved the coach, but man, I was just as anxious as Lucas and Gillian were and I was hoping for the best outcome possible. 

Now, the reason this isn't a full 5-star book for me is that while I really did like the book, I do wish there had been a more of an emotional side to Lucas and Gillian's forbidden romance. I felt like the story was there, their love was there, I just wasn't always fully feeling their passion, especially during their alone time. 

That said, I do recommend this book, very much so! I have been a huge fan of Kim Karr since she published Connected, so yes, grab it! If you're in the mood for a steamy sports romance, this is definitely the book for you! 4.5 Stars!

Kim is a daydreamer. So much so that if daydreaming could be a hobby it would be her favorite. It's how her stories are born and how they take root. An imagination that runs wild is something to be thankful for, and she is very thankful. :)

She grew up in New York and now lives in Florida with her husband and four kids. She's always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, she wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. She went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise her family. Kim currently works part-time with her husband and with the rest of her time embraces one of her biggest passions--writing.

Kim wears a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of her family. However, she always finds time to read.

She likes to believe in soul mates, kindred spirits, true friends, and Happily-Ever-Afters. She loves to drink champagne, listen to music, and hopes to always stay young at heart.
