Release Date: October 19
Quarterback Austin Reid’s got it all–talent, looks, women. The only thing missing? A national championship. Something he intends to rectify. With his kicker laid up and the university’s home opener in three weeks, he’s not above poaching talent from the women’s soccer team. Or recruiting a sassy, STEM-loving brunette who wants nothing to do with football or him.
Kennedy Carter is no jersey chaser. Hell, she doesn’t even like football players. They’re all swagger and no substance. Guys who like to play games on and off the field? Hard pass. She knows exactly how those stories end. But when Waverly’s sexy quarterback dangles the prospect of a full scholarship under her nose, it’s game on.
Sparks fly and the more time they spend together, the harder it gets to fight the sizzling attraction. Austin’s always done what’s expected of him, but when the clock runs out, he’ll have to decide what’s more important: fulfilling his legacy or following his heart.

Austin is a college quarterback who is entering his final year and is expected to be chosen in the first round of the NFL draft but for that to happen the team needs to have a good season and that means they need to find a replacement for their injured kicker.
Kennedy is attending college on a partial scholarship for the woman’s soccer team when she is approached by Austin with the opportunity to receive a full scholarship kicking for the football teams. It is an offer too good to pass up since it will allow her to quit her part-time jobs and focus on her studies.
There are so many reasons for them not to be together as not only has the coach made it clear that no one on the team should be dating Kennedy but they both also have family issues that make it more complicated. What starts as teammates with benefits turns into something much deeper, but first they must learn to balance not only the demands of the team but what direction their futures should take as well.
Meet Jennifer Bonds
Jennifer Bonds writes sizzling contemporary romance with sassy heroines, sexy heroes, and a whole lot of mischief. She’s a sucker for enemies-to-lovers stories, laugh out loud banter, and over the top grand gestures.
While she’d like to tell you she’s always loved reading, it just wouldn’t be true. In second grade her mom had to bribe her to read (and learn multiplication tables), but by the time she reached middle school she was hopelessly addicted to all things fiction. Amazingly, it didn’t help her popularity level, but did inspire her to write her first book, which (thankfully) is buried in the basement where it will never see the light of day.
Ten years of professional insanity and one MBA later, Jennifer decided to take a chance and pursue her dream of writing. Because, honestly, what could be better than spending your days reading and writing swoonworthy romance?
She also writes YA paranormal romance as J.J. Bonds.
Jennifer lives in Pennsylvania, where her overactive imagination and weakness for reality TV keep life interesting. She’s lucky enough to live with her own real life hero, two adorable (and sometimes crazy) children, and one rambunctious K9.
Loves Buffy, Mexican food, a solid Netflix binge, the Winchester brothers, cupcakes, and all things zombie. Sings off-key.
