Love breaks the offside rule in New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken’s irresistibly sexy Red Card romance.

Successful, high-profile sports agent Matt Kingston thinks he can handle anything. Then soccer player Parker Speedman shows up at his door. She is young and gorgeous, has natural talent, and is looking for a team. She’s also a hothead with a punchy past who floored her last coach on live TV. Despite his misgivings, Matt agrees to be both her agent and her coach. Professional common sense says she’s off-limits. But what can he say about the raw attraction between them?

Parker plays soccer with her heart and soul. But after the events of the last year, she’s shaken. She’s already seen what a powerful man can do to a female athlete’s career. And her beloved dream is in the hands of a sexy, gorgeous man with the uncanny ability to slip past her defenses…and into her heart.

Now Matt and Parker are about to learn that when it comes to love, the only way to win is by breaking every rule they know. And by playing nice. Real nice.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/NetGalley, Skyscape, Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
Holy WOW! I am a long time fan or Van Dyken’s. Everything she writes, she sucks me into. I can literally read one of her books in 24 hours. I absolutely adored Risky Play when I read it, falling in love with all the amazing characters like Slade and Mack. Reading Kickin’ It…! Even better than the first, and the first was absolutely amazing!
Parker. Bless her soul. I felt so much for her! She had a lot of anger built up, but who can blame her, with a past like hers? But, when she comes to town, and she meets sports agent Matt…….holy hell! The intense, passionate sparks that fly between them is all consuming! Matt’s character was my favorite. I felt his feelings fly off the page. They were raw, they were mind blowing, they were LIFE.
If you are looking for a fantastic, 5 star read, then look no further than this incredible story. You’ll find everything you need in this romance novel……perfectly flawed characters, passionate emotions, a story of letting go and moving forward and so much more. It is book 2 in Van Dyken’s Red Card series, and I highly suggest you read them in order. It’s definitely a book for the keeper shelf!
