Cam has been the king of college basketball for the past three years. Every season he dominates the basketball scene, and the entire country loves him. Well, everyone except for the only girl whose attention he actually wants.
As the new trainer for the men’s basketball team at North Calhoun University, Reese literally can’t stay away from the cocky star forward. She tends to avoid Cam’s type. The big-man-on-campus, alpha male type. But she’s finding it very difficult to ignore him and his relentless flirting.
THERE’S JUST ONE PROBLEM
Reese is the coach’s daughter. Cam’s coach has made it very clear that all members of his team are to keep their hands off Reese, no exceptions. With his final season at NCU under way, the last thing Cam needs is for his team’s dynamic to be screwed up, all because he couldn’t keep from screwing the coach’s daughter. He has to stay far away from her if he wants to take his team all the way.
MAKE THAT TWO PROBLEMS
Trey Warren. Point guard for NCU’s rival school. A.k.a., Cam’s long-time arch rival and coincidentally, Reese’s greatest nemesis. Trey is the one person who can send Cam’s basketball empire crumbling to the ground. Not to mention make matters between Cam and Reese even more complicated.
As the highly publicized rivalry between Cam and Trey intensifies, the attraction between Cam and Reese heats up to scorching levels. No matter what, they know they have to resist each other. The more they deny their feelings, though, the stronger the pull between them becomes.
But can they withstand secrets, betrayals, rivalries, and the ever-present press? Even if they break all the rules, will they be strong enough to fight through the forces conspiring against them?
AFTER ALL, EVEN KINGS CAN BE OVERTHROWN…
Cam is the ultimate sports romance hero in that he's a bit arrogant, loyal to his sport and team, and after a woman who sees the conflict in their getting together. Reese is an intelligent and level-headed heroine who finds it very difficult to ignore her attraction to Cam. Mix this chemistry/intensity with the fact that Reese's father is Cam's coach and you got yourself some tension.
There is some fantastic banter between the two, and it was quite fun to read. I love listening to witty banter. This also came as a surprise since it took me a bit to get into the book. It certainly wasn't a long time, but it did take a short bit. However, once I got into it, oh, it was sooo good. I definitely recommend this for my fellow romance readers - if you haven't tried a sports romance, let this be your first one.
