About the Author

Growing up, Sara Rider dreamed of becoming a professional soccer player. When that dream was squashed by her extreme dislike of running, she decided to do the next best thing: write about professional soccer players. By day, Sara spends her time working in the field of research ethics and daydreams about plotlines and character arcs. She spends far too much time at public libraries and never leaves the house without a paperback or an e-reader stuffed into her purse.

I really liked how two professional athletes could make a relationship work.

Such a fun read! This book has such great chemistry between Lainey & Gabe- you can't help but fall in love with them while they are falling in love with each other. I also liked how the story built their love slowly, not like so many books that the love is instant & the happy couple run off for their HEA with no struggles. This author has a great writing style & some funny one liners. Can't wait for the next book in the series!

Wow, this is an amazing book that features two outstanding soccer players that prove opposites attract. Lainey Lukas is at the top of her game and is now captain of the Seattle Falcons, a women’s soccer team. She has endured injury, won a world cup, and made a lot of sacrifices in pursuit of her career. Lainey is gifted on the playing field, but struggles with the press. She meets Gabe Havelok, hometown hero and leader of the male soccer team, during her team’s first press conference and a beautiful relationship is born! Gabe and Lainey start a battle of the sexes that leads a series of public relations events to see who will win the right to practice in their preferred space. They start as adversaries and become much, much more… I loved this book and am looking forward to the next book in the series! Sara Richards does an excellent job creating two strong, driven leads that are both working towards their life goals. I loved how the story interwove the plot with humor and romance. I also loved the supporting characters and setting. I was given a free copy for an honest review.

A fantastic read and what a treat to read a sports romance with a national women's team being featured. Lainey and Gabe are two great characters and the sparks that fly between them made for one very entertaining story. Lainey has worked hard her entire life to get to the top of her game. She's determined to lead her women's soccer team to a national championship and no media hogging men's team player is going to stop her. When Gabe Havelak, Seattle's top male player, hijacks her press conference she vows revenge. When they challenge each other to a battle of the sexes the hilarity begins and the attraction between the two comes to life! This is one I highly recommend.
