Publisher's Summary

Juked: verb.
/jook-t/
A slang soccer term meaning: faked out, deceived, confused your opponent

See examples Daniel Zavaro and Quincy Watson:

As the rising star in Houston, Daniel has found fame as captain of his pro soccer team and the city's most eligible bachelor. Daniel has everything - except someone special - and that suits him just fine. He doesn't want, or need, complications.

Quincy has baggage, and lots of it. After a tragic accident spins her world on its axis, she finds herself as a single mother, raising a newborn nephew she never knew she had. Between parenthood, her full-time job, and dealing with the suffocating grief of losing her sister, every day is a struggle. When they begin to cross paths unexpectedly and often, an unlikely friendship starts to evolve. Feelings change. Lines get crossed. What happens next surprises them both....

Before they know it - they've been juked.

Sweet story

After listening to M.E. Carter's two book series, Change of Hart, I selected Juked because Change of Hart was so incredible and I wanted to sample more from this author.

Even though this book was not at the same level as Change of Hart, it was a feel good kind of book. There was enough chemistry between Daniel and Quinncy to keep me entertained and several interesting secondary characters to add to the story. I love stories about pro-athletes that meet a regular girl, but since I'm not a big soccer fan, Daniel's character was not as alpha sexy to me as some of the other books that I've read that have simular storylines (i.e. hockey, football or baseball).

Fortunately, our exceptional narrator, Joe Arden helps bring sexiness to the character with his gruff and totally hot voice. Joe is one of my personal favorites. He also does an excellent proformance when he speaks in Spanish or uses an occational Mexican American accent. He gives a five star proformance. I was not familiar with Simone. but, she really does an outstanding job as Quincy. Overall, I would give this a 4.5 rating.

Juked

I'm ashamed to say Juked has been on my TBR forever (reads 2 yrs). I bought it and forgot about it. I saw the upgrade for audiobook and jumped at it...but it still sat there.

Now comes the part where I'm ashamed. Juked is a great story. M.E. Carter had me in tears immediately. I loved the immediate bond formed with the main character.

In such a tough situation, M.E. Carter didn't pull any punches. It was rough, it was real, and it was eye opening.

I have to say the meeting between the Daniel and Quincy was probably one of my favorite meet cutes. Juked is sweet, real, and a perfect escape.

Light but sweet .

I Like that this book's storyline is different than most books. I enjoyed seeing a woman portrayed as being strong and hurt without all the yelling and hateful talking. This is who more women in books should be like.

More of a single parent story than a sports romanc

The story was very solid, but for some reason I expected more sports in it. I loved Daniel, the big family dynamic and how mature and gallant he is. This is a male character any woman would love, and with Joe Arden voicing him, it's even better. Quincy is a solid strong willed, smart and great leading female. Her circumstances were well developed and you could empathize and root for her the whole way. A solid 1st book in the series with excellent narration!

Juked

I still really enjoyed Daniel and Quinn’s story. It’s been a while and I’m finally going to listen to the rest of the series so I figured I would re-read first. Daniel meets Quinn on one of her worst days and is as charming as always, coming to her rescue and giving her much needed help with her new nephew Chance. The spark and attraction is there for him from the beginning and it never leaves. It quickly develops for her as well. They both are reluctant to put a label in their relationship and that ok- until it isn’t. Daniel wasn’t perfect with his actions but he had his reasons. (Even if he took too long to explain himself).
Now I’m curious about the next book since she isn’t a favorite side character.

Admirable sports hero.

This is the first novel in a series but a stand-alone. I enjoyed it very much, especially since the author was new to me and I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was well-written, paced right, with likeable characters. I especially liked that: the soccer-playing hero was not portrayed as a sports God, rather, as a humble, modest person; and that there was no insta-anything here. Instead, there was a good build-up, good plot, well executed. I’d like to read more by this author.

The narrators included Joe Arden, who was wonderful as usual; and I may have listened to Simone Lewis once before. I thought she did a great job here too.

Cute story

Likeable characters. Cute storyline.

Steaminess level was simmering, with a couple of hot vanilla scenes.

Narrators were good.

No cliffhanger.

ENJOYABLE AND SWEET

Since I’m in Houston this was a bit closer to my heart bcuz I love our soccer team. Overall the story is well written and narrated. The sex is not as hot as I like it but it was enough to make me say Ummmm. I think my followers will enjoy as a light Sunday listen.

More than I expected!

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started this book, but was very pleasantly surprised and am now telling every one of my reader friend that they have to read it!
It’s got heartache. It’s got heat. It’s got all the messy involved in a young relationship and it was wonderful!
