I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

He's the newly drafted quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words.
Ready to score.

I'm an athletic intern, and the coach's daughter.
Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.
Completely off-limits.

The NFL is full of rules. Rules I've never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched--until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don't-give-a-f*ck attitude.

After I almost injure my father's star player, I volunteer to make sure he's in top shape. At first, it's hell. I don't like his cockiness, his easy smile. Don't like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.

That doesn't stop me from wanting him. He's meant to be a distraction--something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I'm forced to leave football behind forever.

I know what we're doing will lead nowhere good. I know we're crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.

None of that matters.

But maybe it should.

Rules aren't meant to be broken.

Or are they?


This is a hard review for me to write, I went into this book expecting to love it for some reason. I am a huge sports romance fan and this blurb took hold of me from the first word. Unfortunately it wasn’t the same with the storyline.

This is the story of the forbidden fruit. Lucas Carrington, the newly drafted Quarterback of the Chicago Bears literally falls at the feet of a beautiful girl, Gillian Whitney. What de does not know is the fact that she is also his coach’s daughter he has a “No Girl” policy during Training Camp rule, but especially one that states that any of his players are to stay away from his girl. But of course, rules are meant to be broken.

This story gave me some insights into the whole football process from the draft, training camp etc, which for a foreigner like me, is very cool, and it gave the story a feeling of being realistic, but what really didn’t work for me was the fact that I didn’t feel any connection to the characters or between them. It wasn’t until the last 12 percent I felt that driving need to keep reading to see how would end. But those last 12 percent which actually had me tearing up a few times, is why this book gets 3.5 stars.
