Will I continue this series?  Possibly…I'm torn…maybe I'll try a different book by her.

 

 

 

My Thoughts⇜ 

 

I would like to thank the Author for writing a story with the perfect blend of sexy stuff, angsty love, humor and some olympic inspired drama.  Everything about this clicked with me.  I loved it.  That's why I'm so bummed, that the second book in the series, has so many reviews that are two stars or less...

 

Narration is excellently done by Amanda Dolan, she has a great voice for this genre of book…and she did an excellent English accent as well (at least from this American girls pov).  Shaun Grindell did the male pov and he was good too, but I think I would of liked a more masculine voice for Freddie.

⇝Sex Factor⇜  Just the right amount of well written sexy scenes…

Cover Reveal for Dropkick My Heart by Winter Travers

Kellan
Countless hours of practice, and enough determination to succeed no matter the cost is what has brought Kellan to standing at the door to his life coming full circle. 
Life on the competition circuit was fast-paced, and exciting, but now Kellan is ready to settle down, and stay in his own bed for longer than a week.
Opening Powerhouse Martial Arts with his three best friends was just what they all needed to showcase their skills from traditional forms, all the way to show-style sport tricking.
Kellan thought he had it all figured out, except he didn’t figure in the sassy barista next door.
 
Molly
For seven years, Molly saved every penny she had to buy the quirky coffee shop on the corner.
Lattes, cappuccinos, espresso. You name it, Molly can make it.
Early mornings slinging coffee, and late nights thinking up the next new coffee craze leaves Molly little time to have a life. Her customers have become her family, and she would do anything to keep her customers happy.
Even venturing over to the new Martial Arts studio next door, and asking them to keep the screaming and grunting to a minimum. Surely one doesn’t need to scream so much, right?
 
With Molly throwing down the gauntlet to quiet down or shut down, Kellan does the only thing he can do.
Take off the sparring gloves, and show the barista just what Powerhouse Martial Arts is all about. 
Strength, Style, & taking no prisoners.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Winter Travers is a devoted wife, mother, and aunt turned author who was born and raised in Wisconsin. After a brief stint in South Carolina following her heart to chase the man who is now her hubby, they retreated back up North to the changing seasons, and the place they now call home.

 
Winter spends her days writing happily ever afters, and her nights zipping around on her forklift at work. She also has an addiction to anything MC related, her dog Thunder, and Mexican food! (Tamales!)
 
Winter loves to stay connected with her readers. Don’t hesitate to reach out and contact her.

CUTE!
Rookie Move - Sarina Bowen

Rookie Move - Sarina Bowen 

 

I didn't go gaga over this like I did with the IVY YEARS series, but I thought it was cute. I'm a sucker for second chance romance and I was glad to see that Georgia and Leo got a shot to be together again.

I was a little ticked at her for almost screwing it all up...AGAIN, but I was glad that Leo was so freakin focused on not letter her get away for a second time.

I enjoyed the other characters and hope to get to know them better. I even hope to see Silas again. He got a bum wrap at the end. I'm thinking that there may be something between Becca, Georgia's roommate, and Nate, the team's owner. I look for more clues to that in the next book.

I listened to this one on audio and it was done by two new to me narrators. I thought they did a great job.

Blurb: 
 
 Football is my life. My passion. The only thing that matters. There's one goal: A perfect season. But now, all that’s changed. The feisty little brunette on the sidelines. I watch her. I study her. I want her. She’s my new goal. And it won’t be easy. Not to mention she’s the enemy. We both know being together will stir up a storm. That doesn't change my mind. In fact, knowing there's a challenge only makes me want her more. No matter how hard she fights, I’m going to make her mine. Add to Goodreads   (unedited) Excerpt:   “What do you want Dawson?” “Ha! So you do know who I am. And here I thought we needed introductions.” My eyes roll. “Everyone knows who you are. I’m not an idiot.” His body reaches me and he completely towers over my short frame. I can’t help but feel a little intimidation but I can’t let him see that. I won’t. “I just want to finish our conversation from before that little interruption. I know you saw me last night. Just admit; you were watching.” His voice deepens as his eyes turn dark, seeping with tease and lust. I gulp, returning his stare and know that I can’t lie my way out of this mess. “You’re right, I did see you last night. I was watching. But, it’s nothing I haven’t seen before. You just caught me off guard. I wasn’t expecting to see that and that’s why I was staring.” His eyes squint, trying to decipher what I just mumbled. Just as his mouth opens, the valet driver returns with my car, pulling up to the curb. “Your car, Miss Andrews.” I step away from Dawson and spin to face the driver. I thank him and walk around the car toward the driver side as the valet holds open the door for me. Just as I’m about to climb inside, Dawson grabs the valet by his jacket and pushes him away and shuts the car door. “Buzz off kid, we’re busy here.” My mouth drops as Dawson sends the driver inside. “Why would you do that? He’s just doing his job.” Dawson snickers, “Please. He’s just trying to score points with you. I could have seen that shit from a mile away.” I shrug, standing against the driver side door. “And what if I wanted him to. That’s none of your business.” He chuckles deep under his breath then inches his head, closer to mine. “Yeah? And I bet you would have been thinking of me instead.” His fingers reach up, grazing my skin, igniting it on fire as the heat from our touch scorches between us. He whispers, “Just admit it Peeps…you want me to --.” My mind snaps out of the trance and I immediately push him away from me. “No, stay away from me.” I open the car door and jump inside, immediately shifting the car into gear. Just as I’m about to pull away, he taps the window and I can hear his voice chime through the glass. He gives me a devilishly handsome and conniving smile. I can’t help but feel excitement and aggravation all at the same time. “You can’t run from me forever. This ain’t over.”

I laughed a lot with this one!
Cleat Chaser - Celia Aaron,Sloane Howell

Cleat Chaser - Celia Aaron,Sloane Howell 

 

 

This was really cute. I enjoyed it even though I knew, just KNEW what was going to happen with the new pitcher on the team. I wasn't happy with the way Easton handled it, but it all worked out in the end. Lots of funny moments, and lots of hot ones too. 

I'm definitely going to continue on with the next book.
