Genre: Contemporary Romance
Nicky Thomas is a female sports reporter for Kick Magazine and has been given the chance of a lifetime. Following the English football (soccer) team as it battles for the European Cup, she will also follow Lewis Tate, captain of the team. He is England's golden boy and beyond sexy.
Coach Fellows has strict rules for his team when they travel, especially with The Cup in the balance. No women are allowed to distract the men as they focus on winning, so when Nicky shows up at the first press conference coach ignores her. So when her outspoken nature gets her noticed by coach and Lewis, Nicky jumps at the opportunity.
After a series of hurdles meant to keep them apart, Nicky and Lewis find each other rooming across the hall from each other. They share casual words and long looks until fate throws them together, but no one can know until after the final game.
I loved the detail given to the aspect of the game. Lily definitely showed her love for the game and made me feel like I was right there watching the game. The romance between Nicky and Lewis was smoldering and when fanned with enough room to breathe it combusted.
