A pro career.
All eyes on the league’s new kicker.
Millions of people expecting her to fail.
But Reese wasn’t a novelty and the spot she landed on the New Orleans Steamers was one she planned to keep.
With her teammates giving her hell and the world doubting her every move, Reese will have to fight harder than anyone else to make her dream a reality.
Even if that means following the lead of Quarterback Ryder Glenn —the only man who brought her to the edge of ecstasy and the depths of heartbreak. The same man who broke her heart ten years before.

Eden Butler is an editor and writer of Mystery, Suspense and Contemporary Romance novels and the nine-times great-granddaughter of an honest-to-God English pirate. This could explain her affinity for rule breaking and rum.
When she’s not writing or wondering about her possibly Jack Sparrowesque ancestor, Eden patiently waits for her Hogwarts letter, edits, reads and spends way too much time watching rugby, Doctor Who and New Orleans Saints football.
She is currently living under teenage rule alongside her husband in southeast Louisiana.

This was different from a lot of sports romance books that you read today in that the female is kind of taking on a "male" role. I have to say, I wasn't looking forward to getting into this book - until I started reading it. I'm not one of those women who think a woman can do everything a man can do and I still admit that we can't do everything a man can do. This book, however, was super cute and had me at the first chapter. Reese and Ryder have some chemistry that can't be denied in this book. It's sort of smoking hot if I'm gonna be honest and the storyline did have some angst, which I'm not a fan of...but it fit in this. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I'm kind of hoping it comes to Audible soon with maybe some SebYo.
