“Trust me, I’ve wanted to punch you in the face a time or five.”
When the man you worshipped as a kid becomes your coach, it’s supposed to be the greatest thing in the world. Keywords: supposed to.
It didn’t take a week for twenty-seven-year-old Sal Casillas to wonder what she’d seen in the international soccer icon—why she’d ever had his posters on her wall, or ever envisioned marrying him and having super-playing soccer babies.
Sal had long ago gotten over the worst non-break-up in the history of imaginary relationships with a man that hadn’t known she’d existed. So she isn’t prepared for this version of Reiner Kulti who shows up to her team’s season: a quiet, reclusive, shadow of the explosive, passionate man he’d once been.
Nothing could have prepared her for the man she got to know.
Or the murderous urges he brought out in her.
“Sal, please don’t make me visit you in jail. Orange isn’t your color.”
This was going to be the longest season of her life.
“He’s wearing a wedding ring,” Kulti’s low voice murmured from right next to me.
“That doesn’t mean I can’t look,” I muttered right back, noticing that yeah, he was wearing a shiny yellow-gold wedding band right above a tattoo of what looked like a letter.
Something came down over my eyes and I realized that the German had pulled his beanie down over my head. hot jealous guy--check! *swoon
I loved this! I love Sal, she's one of the most very likable heroine ever. This story is not your typical fast-paced insta-love story(I have nothing against insta-lovestories) but this is a breathe of fresh air, the readers are given a chance to get to know the characters, to fell in love with them etc. I feel like Sal is someone I really know or can relate to, I love how she tries to be the best she can and give her all when it comes to her job. I slowly feel in love with Kulti, the way he changes for the better upon meeting Sal.
All in all I really did enjoyed this but I wish it to be longer or at-least the epilogue, I just want more because I'm a greedy little sh*t :p .
P.S I loved that I get to see a glimpse of Dex and Iris future here (Under locke book). I'm getting crazy because there is only one book of the Author I haven't read yet, I need more books from this amazing author.
