Review: Kicked

Kicked Kicked by Celia Aaron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am really loving these sports romance novels! Cleat Chaser, Cleat Catcher and now Kicked!

I don't usually read blurbs first, as I like to experience everything without any kind of spoiler, so I have to say I was rather surprised to find out that the kicker in the story was actually a woman. I love that!
Trent is the quarterback, and Cordy, the third-string kicker. Cordy tries her best to avoid Trent as much as possible, but when an opportunity arises for her to try-out for the first-string kicker position, she reluctantly accepts his help.

These two have a past. One that left Cordy heartbroken.
Trent wants to make up for that fateful night, two years ago.

Delving into Trent's past, we see that there is more to him than meets the eye. If only he could get Cordy to see.

Hot athletes, steamy sex scenes, drama, laughs - this book has it all! I love that it breaks the stereotypes by having a woman kicker. I love that she is strong, but still vulnerable and has those hang-ups that we all do - what if I'm not good enough?
There were times when I wanted to reach into the book and strangle some of the characters, and then plenty of times that I wanted to give them a hug and wipe away their tears. I could feel what they were feeling.

Celia, you have done another knock-out job with this one!

Trent Carrington.
Trent Mr. Perfect-Has-Everyone-Fooled Carrington.
He’s the star quarterback, university scholar, and happens to be the sexiest man I’ve ever seen. He shines at any angle, and especially under the Saturday night stadium lights where I watch him from the sidelines. But I know the real him, the one who broke my heart and pretended I didn’t exist for the past two years.
I’m the third-string kicker, the only woman on the team and nothing better than a mascot. Until I’m not. Until I get my chance to earn a full scholarship and join the team as first-string. The only way I'll make the cut is to accept help from the one man I swore to never trust again. The problem is, with each stolen glance and lingering touch, I begin to realize that trusting Trent isn’t the problem. It’s that I can’t trust myself when I’m around him.
