Publisher's Summary

How do you win a soccer game when you don't even want to be on the team?  

When Hunter Hercules, the biggest soccer star in the Northlands, is transferred to play in the Motherlands, he's mad as hell. Not only is their style of soccer different, but they have mixed teams, and his female captain, Emanuela, calls him unsophisticated and claims that she's a better player than him. What a f--king joke!  

The whole thing is ridiculous and infuriating to Hunter. That's why when the soccer club sends all the players on a team-building trip, Hunter shows up determined to put the little woman in her place. 

It should have been easy, but Emanuela isn't a normal, sweet Motlander he can push around. She's competitive to the bone, and when Hunter plays dirty, she's fast to adapt and hit him back tenfold. Someone should have warned her not to mess with an Nman.  

Contains mature themes.

Really Disappointing

Hunter and Emanuella are miserable people. Jeez. they are both so judgmental and narcissistic. Emanuella is especially righteous and the biggest nag ever!!! Hunter I kinda get since he was away from home, in a relatively foreign culture and had been hurt in the past. Emanuella is just a self centered jerk. I had no desire for them to end up together but at least they aren’t making anyone else miserable.

That said - don’t judge this series on this book. The rest are really fun, fresh, and exciting.

Great sequel

This SQL contains romance and steam. It was nice to see Hunter and Sol forgiving each other at the end. Another great book by Elin Peer.
Once again the narration was superb
