What started out as a joke - seduce Coach Wilder - soon became a goal she had to score.
With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing 19-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He's a professional soccer player, America's favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper. A face that makes girls weep - check. Abs that can shred Parmesan cheese (the expensive kind) - check. Enough confidence to shift the earth's gravitational pull - double check. Not to mention Liam is strictly off limits. Forbidden. Her coaches have made that perfectly clear. (i.e. "Score with Coach Wilder anywhere other than the field and you'll be cut from the team faster than you can count his tattoos.")
But that just makes him all the more enticing... Besides, Kinsley's already counted the visible ones, and she is not one to leave a project unfinished. Kinsley tries to play the game her way as they navigate through forbidden territory, but Liam is determined to teach her a whole new definition for the term "team bonding".

yes, the author's writing was great. Loved the book and characters.
The narration was terrible, I honestly couldn't get past the first 10 minutes. The narrator has a high pitch voice, not great for this type of book
none, thought the book was well written
With more than 1600 audio books to hitchhike along with, I've realized only now that I started "reviewing"...boy I need to catch up!
I really enjoyed this soccer themed tricky romance. A little fun, flirting, evil jealous mean girl and of course, hot soccer players! This a good listen, typical athlete issues of dating, trials and tribulations but what I enjoyed the most is that the main character didn't turn into a complete dummy or push-over when things got dicey. She kept a good head in the game!
Tell me a story
This was a easy, lighthearted, funny book. I would've given it a higher rating if not for the narration, which I found a bit annoying. Not so annoying that I stopped listening, but enough that it detracts from the story.
It's a fun book, unfortunately, I thought narration was quite annoying for my liking .
Say something about yourself!
Yes. It wasn't the best story but I laughed so hard throughout and made it a fun listen.
How funny it was.
No. But I will in the future.
Yes, as a romantic comedy. The stars should be Liam Hemsworth (of course) and Hayden Panettiere.
The sexy scenes were a bit weird for me. Both of the main characters has more of a laid back, cool personality and great sense of humor. For some reason, the dominant side of Liam didn't seem to fit him. Or maybe it was just the voice over... Just didn't do it for me. And I thought there would be more drama or more to the story but it kind of fell flat in the end. It was an easy listen nonetheless and I enjoyed it.
Wow...I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It not only had a great romance but it was also extremely comical as well! I would be listening to the book while walking around my house cleaning and just burst out laughing all of a sudden & my little daughters would just stare at me and then say..."You okay mommy? What are you laughing at?"
So, overall I really enjoyed this book and really loved the author for making it so well rounded! I totally fell for the Hero of the book, he was so sweet & honest & supportive of Kensley, the heroine. And as for her, she was a very good heroine as well! She wasn't one of those wimpy, whinny characters; she was the total opposite of that which I absolutely loved about her!! Strong, independent, talented, beautiful & extremely funny!! Excellent book!
The narrator was excellent as well! I loved her voice and she made the funny parts even better with the way she said them. I also love when a narrator uses a different voice or tone for when their speaking as either a female character or a male character. It makes it easier to understand and flows nicely.
ROMANCE! MC, vampire, YA, etc...I'm picky & only leave feedback on the ones I LOVED, w/lots of bookmarks, the ones that ck'd all my boxes.
Bcz I don't like being negative, I only do reviews on bks that I LOVED. I normally like MC/vampire bks...I'm super picky but this was a great book! It starts off with her catching her boyfriend cheating. Then 2wks later, she's out celebrating her 19th bday (the nit b4 her 1st college soccer practice) & she meets Liam at a party when she's talking to his pro soccer friends ...she gives him the brush off...although she does flirt w/him a lil... until he tells her that he's one of her coaches this season... (Throughout the bk her ex, Josh, is trying to get back w/ her...) I luv that u can tell how much Liam, likes & cares for Kinsley. He is really protective. Funny book. I listened to it twice even tho 50% of the bks I buy... I can't even listen to once! Definitely worth a credit! ~Blessings!! :)
I busy myself living life, chasing smiles, and enjoying adventures!
This was a fun read! Jessica's narration was perfect and really brought the story to life! This was not life-changing literature but definitely an upbeat, entertaining story. I chuckled a few times and definitely rooted for these characters. There was no back story of terrible parents who beat down their self esteem or tragic childhood events that warped their adult psyche, which was refreshing. Just two young people and their fun friends trying to achieve their personal goals through hard work, determination and the support of their loved ones. There was a bit of drama to keep things interesting and spark some new challenges...but overall, simply a happy story. Glad I spent the credit and I will read again!
reviewed wrong book for one more day
Honestly this was one of the funniest books, the narrater was amazing, she really bought the story to life.
They're equally good. Jessica Almasy has terrific timing and tone. Some narrators can be a little flat, but the narration in this was really spot on. I liked her male voices too - they weren't overdone.
The main character - Kinsey. I would list this as a romantic comedy and Jessica Almasy performed it to perfection.
The content and how it was narrated had me rolling. I laughed so loudly I scared my hubby a few times.
I really love this author and the narrator did an amazing job. Well done overall!
