Milwaukee Growlers Football Book 1
It was supposed to be just for kicks...
Andi Larsen learned early on there is no such thing as fairy godmothers. A childhood spent in foster care will do that to a girl. She’s working her way through night school and is on the cusp of establishing her own business without help from anyone, thank you very much. But when her deadbeat ex steals her identity, amassing a staggering debt in her name, her fairy godmother appears in the guise of a spunky, Fireball whisky-wielding septuagenarian. The older woman’s solution for Andi? Tie the knot with a kilt-wearing, moody jock whose legs look sexier in a skirt than hers do.
Declan Fletcher never intended to be a place-kicker for a professional football team. But fate had other plans. Exiled from his beloved Scotland a decade ago, Dex is now a superstar athlete known throughout the league as the “Man with the Million Dollar Leg.” But when a mix-up in his immigration paperwork threatens to send him home before the season begins, he’ll do anything to avoid deportation and facing his greatest mistake. Even if it means marrying a pink-haired waif of a lass with eyes that seem to see everything he’s determined to keep hidden.
A grumpy cat, nosy teammates, and a sizzling sexual attraction make their marriage of convenience anything but convenient.

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.
