There is nothing quite like a good guy who finally gets everything he deserves from life. This series has been full of emotion, with complex characters and situations that make for very angsty reads. Hard to Score is probably the lightest one, though don’t tell that to this hero; he is a genuinely kind, loving, and loyal man who has just taken hit after hit. I loved him. This former friends to lovers romance is full of heart, oh so sexy, and brimming with intimacy. The push/pull between these two made for an excellent read – there’s tension of the sexual variety, but a whole lot more too. Their shared history is probably the best part of the book; the author only shows us a few flashbacks, but they are incredibly powerful in the present. It’s an emotional, engaging read that had me rooting for the good guy.
The story follows Brexton and Drew, or Bratty Brexton and Dreadful Drew, if you ask their teenage selves. Their families were close growing up, so they spent countless summers and vacations together. Brexton even had a huge crush on Dreadful-turned-Dreamy Drew, even if he was oblivious to it. But the families had a huge falling out, and these two haven’t seen each other in years. Brexton is now a sports agent, and she can’t help but wonder why the extremely talented Drew has been left on the sidelines. As the two begin to spend more time together, it becomes obvious that their history is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing, because the pull between them is so strong, but a curse because it’s also what pushes them away from each other.
I’ve been LOVING this series, and this was no exception. The first two books were intense and steamy, with heroes who weren’t quite as “nice.” Drew is the kind of guy that you’d want to snatch up in an instant in real life; not an alphahole you can tame, but a sweet, sexy, nice guy. His issues certainly add a level of complication, but there’s no hiding how good he is underneath it all. I loved the storyline – it felt unique and different, but also very realistic. There’s a great growth in intimacy and some very sexy moments. It leads with the sexual tension before smoldering into a more emotional story, and I loved the progression. Now I can’t wait for the final book in the series – we’ll see what we get with that one. I was lucky enough to receive an early copy and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sexy sports romance.
New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a new Kincade sister and a swoon-worthy football player in an all new standalone romance that will make you believe in first crushes and true love.
I’ve signed numerous players to my family’s agency—I assumed winning over my next client would be just as easy.
The last thing I expected was to run into the boy who took my first kiss and broke my heart: only now Drew Bowman is all grown up.
Sexy. Scandal-tainted. Second-string. The crush I never got over.
I tell myself work is the reason I can’t get him out of my head. I tell him his talent far outweighs his position, and I know I can help. I lie and lie, because admitting that I want a second chance at my first love is impossible.
Some lines cannot be crossed, and ours was drawn in the sand years ago.
I’m supposed to hate her.
I’ve been told so time and again for ten years – her father ruined our family, smeared my name before my career even began.
But that’s not what I’m feeling now.
Brexton Kincade just strode out of my memories and onto my field.
Driven. Determined. Grown up. The Capulet to my Montague.
Being with her would be an unforgivable sin against my father, but I can’t resist the pull between us. Even if it means hiding what we have. Even if it means confronting the secrets I’ve always feared were lies.
