Synopsis:

Landing the PR contract for North Carolina's new soccer team could take Holly Taylor's career to the next level. Her task? Make Kepler "Killer" de Klerk, an athlete with a party-hard reputation, a star. But revamping the sexy footballer's image while battling her unwanted attraction to him is easier said than done.
The car accident that derailed Kepler's European career also gave him some much-needed perspective. He's ready to give up on fame and focus on the game he loves. The last thing he needs is a headstrong brunette pushing him back into the spotlight, even if butting heads with her is the most fun he's had in ages.
The more time Holly spends with Kepler, the more she sees how different he is from his tabloid persona. But when she's offered her dream job for a price, she finds herself torn between the career she's spent years building and the man she doesn't want to give up.

My review:

The beginning of this book did not grab my attention and whisk me into the story, but it brought me through the story gradually. This allowed me to get to know the characters without a lot of  huge information dumps along the way. I was able to gradually learn about Holly and Kepler. I won't lie the slow start isn't something I like but I loved the slow and steady way the author allowed us to know the characters. The story line was pretty good, very romantic and it had some definite steamy sections.  The author brought me into the game and the behind the scenes action that a PR specialist has to go through in order to represent their client and keep them out of trouble. I actually went and looked things up to find out more about the game, the possible injuries and the PR aspect of it to figure out if this was just a gooey story or if these things were possible. Trust me when I say that Rebecca Crowley really did well in representing the plausible side of things through out the book. It left me wanting more in the end. I will be reading more by this author and I am going to be telling every sports and romance fanatic I know about it!

About the author:

Rebecca Crowley inherited her love of romance from her mom, who taught her to at least partially judge a book by the steaminess of its cover. She writes contemporary romance and romantic suspense with smart heroines and swoon-worthy heroes, and never tires of the happily-ever-after. Having pulled up her Kansas roots to live in New York City and London, Rebecca recently relocated to Johannesburg, South Africa.
