The Lion Heart - Carrie Aarons

This is book #2, in the Rogue Academy series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this sexy series in order.

 

Kingston is at the top of his game.  He has made it to the best of the best.  Now he wants to be with the best.  Attracted from the first moment they met, he has wanted Poppy.  Chasing after women is just not the same now.

 

Poppy is sick of being lusted after by men who feel it is their right.  Overpaid, or born into money they all seem to be just overgrown boys who want to add her to their toy collection.  She has plans to be more than just a rich mans conquest.

 

The chemistry with this couple is off the charts.  Every time they are even in the same room the temperature rises.  This series seems to just get hotter.  I love the banter.  I love the pace that is nice and strong.  The heat is nice and hot.  I cannot wait to see the next installment.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

The Second Coming - Carrie Aarons

Aria has lived near the ballers her whole life.  Now she works for the very college that brings them to their small town.  She avoids them all, even dresses down as not to attract any to herself.

 

Jude finds her attractive anyway.  He sets out to find more about her.  Only he is already on thin ice.  He is pushing the envelope because he can.  Aria wants nothing to do with someone who is so cavalier with the rest of his life.  

 

This is a story that I Was not sure I would understand.  Outside of reading, I am not real patient with someone like this main character.  Seeing it through their eyes however, I now understand why he appeals to someone more laid back.  I found the banter interesting.  The heat was certainly there.  And the friendships were very cool.  I cannot wait to read more about this series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

I Am The Secret Footballer: Lifting the Lid on the Beautiful Game - The Secret Footballer "It is often said that 95% of what happens in football takes place behind closed doors. Many of these stories I shouldn't be telling you about. But I will."

So reads the blurb on the back cover.

If only the book actually lived up to it....


I went into this book thinking that it might actually 'lift the lid' and expose secrets and stories that people hadn't already heard many times over already. Instead. far too much of the book is filled with the kind of stories that you hear regularly touted as 'shattering' on various TV shows by pundits or former players.

About the only 'new' thing was the 'player agent' answering questions from fans via Twitter - something that the Secret Footballer actually lifted directly from his column in 'The Guardian' newspaper... It's not new, and it's not even remotely 'shattering'.


I did so desperately want to like this book. It is well written. You can see, as a reader, that the player (whomever he may be) is writing from the heart.

But too much of it is simply a rehash of his regular columns and fails to meet the expectations that the blurb envisions.

It is only because GR doesn't have a half star feature that enables this book to score the full 2-stars that I give it...

..and in some respects I wonder if even that is too generous.
