Book Blurb:

They call him the second coming.
Of honor for British football.
Of God in an athlete’s body.
Of every English woman’s fantasy.

Jude Davies is my country’s prodigy on the pitch. More famous than the nobility in Buckingham Palace, he and his merry band of scoundrels rule the Rogue Football Academy and the London nightlife scene alike.

And now, he’s aiming his well-honed set of skills directly at me. His devilish charm is lethal, but with the tragic hand life has dealt me, distractions like him aren’t an option.

Plus, we’re only playing a game. One of convenience, where he needs me to save his reputation, and I need his money to save the one person I love.

Until he wraps me around that immoral finger.
Until I crave that reckless, wild high he provides.
Until I hope for a future that will never happen.

That’s the thing about going toe-to-toe with the next football legend. He’s faster, stronger, and will destroy me every time.

My review:

Jude is a 20 year old soccer player who has grown up being treated like a star. He was enrolled in a soccer focused boarding school at age 7 and adored by fans and the media almost his entire life. Aria is a 19 year old working two jobs at the school, which is near her home, trying to make enough money to keep the bills paid and a roof over the heads of herself and her father, who is battling cancer. She works day and night, running home to take care of her father in between shifts.

They encounter each other when Jude uses the locker room showers when his roommate is “entertaining” in their shower and Aria walks in to clean, singing along with her headphones. Jude is taken by her beauty and her voice, and the fact that she wants nothing to do with him unlike literally every other woman he encounters. Aria has no time to even think about dating, and she isn’t interested in the self-proclaimed cocky bastard and his attitude.

Jude and Aria keep running into each other, and develop a relationship. Jude encourages Aria in her singing and helps her to record a demo. Jude’s partying reputation has jeopardized his career, and the Dean of the school threatens Aria’s job as a way to keep him in line. But can their fledgling relationship survive the scrutiny of the media, the college administration, and Jude’s millions of fans?

This was a good story. It’s another Cinderella-type story but it still seems fresh and original. Aria and her father have an amazing relationship. Jude is financially responsible for his two younger brothers since their parents were killed in an accident several years previously. They find things in common despite their vastly different upbringings. And the character development is fantastic.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

Author of romance novels such as Red Card and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the stories she dreams up, and the yoga pant dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and dog.
