I adored this book! I loved how well developed the characters (Emma & Will) were & I liked how the story progressed at a slowish pace instead of the 2 of them just jumping into the sack together. This is both a sweet & sexy love story- can't wait to read more by Kim Carmody. ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Emma Lexington leaves the comforts of home to take on the opportunity of a lifetime, and hopefully find the advancement in her career that she has been so desperate to achieve. She is going to New York for a twelve month PR job exchange with the New York Warriors football team. She has every intention of keeping herself focused and on task because she knows what is at stake and she isn't willing to lose this opportunity, and be sent back home as a failure. With her fool proof plan in place she is certain nothing can derail her focus, but she didn't plan for a man like Will Jensen. The minute she lays eyes on Will she is intrigued, but when she discovers he is one of the players she immediately shuts him out...but Will isn't taking no for an answer!! New York Warriors star quarterback Will Jensen is well known for his expertise on the field and off, and isn't use to taking no for an answer. He is cocky, handsome, and always get what he wants, and the minute he sets his sights on the teams new Australian PR hire he wants her, even though he knows it's a line he shouldn't cross. But she isn't about to give in to his advances, and it is driving him crazy, and inspires him to go to great lengths just to gain her attention... when he sets his mind to something he doesn't stop until he has it...and he wants Emma!! When I read the synopsis for this one, I instantly knew it was one that I had to read, for me there's nothing quite like a cocky football player going to great lengths to get the girl, I love sports related romance stories and this one DEFINITELY hit the mark!! I was surprised to find this was a debut novel, the writing lead me to believe I was reading something from an author who had several bestsellers under her belt!! The story line pulled me almost immediately and had me flying right through the pages in search of what I hoped to be a steamy and satisfying happily ever after, and I have to say that I found that and SO much more!! This turned out to be a VERY impressive first read for me and I look forward to more reads from this author in the future!! Highly recommend this one, it's sure to have you smiling and swooning the whole way through!!

I loved this book! I read it straight through and just didn't want to put it down. What makes this sports romance book different? Will and Emma. Their chemistry started right from the beginning and it was very entertaining reading their banter back and forth. Will was extremely charming as he chased Emma. Will is the star quarterback for the Warriors and Emma is working for the team on a twelve month exchange program from Australia. I liked that Emma had no idea who Will was or how famous he was. Will was completely charmed by Emma from the first moment he laid eyes on her. His pursuit of her was relentless and entertaining. Emma wasn't immune to Will but she found out quickly it was a bad idea to get involved with one of the players and things started to crash around her only to be pulled back up by Will. This is one of my favorites by far! ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Loved this fantastic, fun and sexy romance. This is a quite an impressive, debut novel for Kim Camody and I can't wait for the rest of this series. I have found a new author that I will be following for a long time to come. This story swept me off my feet, I could not put this story down. Emma Lexington has been given a chance of a lifetime, when she is chosen by her Football Club in Sydney, Australia for a job swap to the New York Warriors team in NYC. Emma doesn't know much about the NFL and has been so busy doing some sightseeing her first week in the exciting city, that she will call home for the next twelve months, she hasn't taken the time to do her research about her new team. So when she shows up at the first official event she is thrown off her game when she comes face to face with Will Jensen the drool worthy, sexy, charming, playboy and star Quarterback of the NY Warriors. Will is taken with the laid back, beautiful Australian who doesn't have a clue who he is. And he can't wait to see more of her. But Emma, with her well ingrained sense of responsibility is determined not to risk her career or her integrity for a fling and she tries to put Will in his place and keep him at arms length. But Will can't take his eyes or mind off of her from the first time he meets Emma and neither can she. Will becomes so dedicated to her as he tries to get her to see how much he cares. That when a near tragedy occurs all bets are off and Emma decides that it is time to live for the moment. And it was Totally worth the wait. The sex scene are.... Not so fast you will have to read to appreciate. Loved Emma and Will they are great lovable characters. I loved the instant attraction and chemistry between these two, that spark of something more and then watching them as they interacted with flirty, sexy banter, playfulness and the innuendo is so engaging and electrifying that it explodes into a lot of Hotness. As they start to get to know each other and start to fall for each other, you feel their protectiveness for one another and even more so, you can feel the anticipation, the fear, the want, the desire, that they feel for one another. There are some twists and turns in their journey and with it all I must confess. I laughed, I cried and I exclaimed out loud several times. It is one of the best romance books I have ever read. And I've read a lot. The way Kim Camody expressed the thoughts and feelings of the characters made me feel like I truly knew and understood them. The twists, heartbreaking and exciting. This story swept me off my feet! LOVED IT! Highly Recommend. Received a complimentary copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

***ARC Provided by the author via NetGalley*** When you hear that something is by a debut author, immediately (at least I do this) you wonder if you are going to get something that lives up the blurb, or if you are going to get something that needs an editor and a few re-writes. Lexington and 42nd is perfect, just as it is. I absolutely LOVED this book. Will and Emma are engaging, and fun, and more importantly, you like them and you want them to end up together. Because you like them as much together as you do apart. I feel like I have been put through the wringer, in the best way. Kim Carmody can write characters you like, and she can describe a scene, she can tell a story with the best of them...but most of all, she can make you FEEL like you are with the characters, like your heart is breaking with them, you understand their fears, their wants and their hopes. By the end, you are a little in love with each of the characters yourself, you can definitely see why they ended up together. There is some push and pull as Emma, and rightly so as it turns out, is concerned about what will happen to her career if she becomes involved with Will. And, Will is the star quarterback, the number one draft pick, so, as Emma tells him, he lives in a bit of a bubble when it comes to understanding this...but he gets it by the end. The supporting characters are likable, and the story is fun. The sex is hot and you can feel their chemistry. You believe it. I loved this book, it is one that I would read again, one that I will gladly recommend. I am looking forward to the next one!

​​​​​Wow, what an entertaining tale from new author Kim Carmody! Although Lexington and 42nd takes place in The Big Apple, it definitely has a vibe from the Land Down Under. The two primary characters, Aussie event organizer Emma Lexington, and NFL quarterback Will Jensen, have amazing yet complicated chemistry, and their relationship is replete with sexual tension, trust issues, and fun. Emma and Will indirectly work together, which totally complicates their blossoming romance. I loved their lively banter and flirtatious ribbing. I especially liked Emma's reference to Roo hunting, which comically messed with Will's thoughts about visiting Australia. Overall, this is an engaging read with great characters and an interesting plot. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.
