JUST FOR KICKS by Tracy Solheim
Tracy Solheim kicked off a winner in the first book of her Milwaukee Growlers Football series, Just for Kicks. There’s a new team in sports romance and the members of the Milwaukee Growlers will make for some swoon-worth, not put down-able stories, flooding the area with love. We have a hard-knocked, strong, stubborn heroine, looking like a fairy with pink hair, whose life has never been easy; but hopefully she can soon see the light at the end of the tunnel. The alpha hero is a kilt-wearing, intelligent, moody jock whose legs look sexy in a skirt and dislikes when things don’t go as planned; plus he speaks with a brogue.
Andi Larsen is close to graduating college with her business degree by taking night classes and working at a friend’s salon during the day. Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, she plans to start her own business, without help from anyone else; that’s what growing up in foster care, after the death of her grandmother, does to a person. When her deadbeat ex steals her identity, amasses a huge debt in her name, this girl is in dire need of a fairy godmother.
Becoming a place-kicker for a professional football team was never on the list of possible career moves for Declan Fletcher, but that’s where he landed. Exiled from his much-loved home in Scotland, a decade ago, Dex is now a superstar athlete known as the “Man with the Million Dollar Leg.” When a mix-up in his immigration paperwork threatens to deport him back to Scotland in three days, before the season even starts, he must find a solution to this dilemma as well as having to face his greatest mistake. Enter a fireball whisky-wielding septuagenarian, mother of his agent and friend of Andi’s; an unexpected fairy godmother. Her suggestion: these two should tie the knot.
Andi and Dex are amazing together. They are a bit opposite yet similar in so many ways. Neither can deny the electric chemistry arcing between them. This marriage of convenience become anything but convenient as these two deal with a grumpy cat, nosy teammates, a mean girl, the dead-beat ex, and a sizzling magnetic attraction in route to finding their happily ever after.
Ms. Solheim wrote a wonderful, sizzling, humorous and emotional story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with magnetic chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Dex and Andi a chance for a love and a future together. I highly recommend Just for Kicks to other readers.
