After getting kicked out of boarding school, bad boy Derek Fitzpatrick has no choice but to live with his ditzy stepmother while his military dad is deployed. Things quickly go from bad to worse when he finds out she plans to move them back to her childhood home in Illinois. Derek’s counting the days before he can be on his own, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with someone else’s family drama. Ashtyn Parker knows one thing for certain--people you care about leave without a backward glance. A football scholarship would finally give her the chance to leave. So she pours everything into winning a state championship, until her boyfriend and star quarterback betrays them all by joining their rival team. Ashtyn needs a new game plan, but it requires trusting Derek—someone she barely knows, someone born to break the rules. Is she willing to put her heart on the line to try and win it all?

It's quite the opposite. Ashtyn Parker, a girl football player, a kicker, dating t...
"Wild Cards" by Simone Elkeles was the perfect blend of contemporary romance dealing with coming of age and tough subjects, with a central theme of sports. I really enjoyed the journey through this book and found it well worth the read. The story toggles between two first-person perspectives: Der...
I love the idea of girls coming out to kick butt in male-dominated sports. Dairy Queen, for example, which is probably my favorite, was not only hilarious, but really well done. And even though I didn't love Out of Play, I still loved the hockey aspect in it. Wild Cards, on the other hand, was incre...
