      Many people out there have the sometimes thrilling and exciting job of changing people for the better, and when I say this I want you to think psychologist, specialist, hairstylists the list goes on and on.But what if your job is to change a celebrity to take them to a level of stardom that will strike every possible stardom crazed fan out there out of the arena and the player right into the hands of the great teams of history If it is what you trained for than it is easy right, and falling in l [...]

      Ok so I technically didn t read this book, but I did listen to the Audible version of it, and for some unknown reason it had me tearing up with my favorite ice cream Jessica Almacy did a phenomenal job as narrator and her voice wasn t too whiny It was nice I have a hard time finding female narrators with beautiful voices The only complaint I had was Holly s voice Almost like Ms Almacy was trying too hard and the accent came across as fake now Kepler s voice was hands down the hottest voice from [...]

      I really liked he premise of this book It started out well and I liked Keplar What I didn t like eventually was Holly I didn t like the way her character was selfish and the fact that she was selling him out I know that I stopped reading at about 70% done because I just couldn t like her any I see from other reviews that there is an HEA of course but I just didn t care for her enough to finally get there It started out as a great read, though.

      Reading this book was like watching a cheesy movie, lets just say i rolled my eyes often than not Honestly, the writing was just bad I m not trying to be mean but it was a waste of time Maybe it got better as it went on but from what I read, would not recommend.

      Originally published at Book Lovers Inc.A sports romance set in North Carolina about soccer instead of NASCAR What a surprise Hey, a sports romance set in the U.S about soccer instead of football An even bigger surprise On the other hand, because the book is about soccer instead of football, or any other sport that USians are familiar with, the title kind of lays an egg On the other hand, the cover, while featuring yet another infamous headless torso, represents an event that takes place in the [...]

      I m not sure what it is lately, but I seem to be picking some pretty damn awesome books to request from NetGalley, especially since the books I ve been having the best luck with are shorter than 200 pages and that typically doesn t fit well with me.The Striker s Chance is author Rebecca Crowley s romantic debut and I have to say she made sure it was a fantastic one in my opinion I haven t always had the best of luck with the sports romance sub genre but this is the epitome of how they should be [...]

      This book was WAY better than what I was expecting I blame the ridiculous cover for my lack of faith I mean, don t get me wrong, I love drooling over ripped, shirtless guys as much the next person but I don t think this cover does the story any favors The Striker s Chance I m also not in love with the title but I m not the editor so whatever was a solid contemporary romance There was no damsel in distress or any bad boy who needed saving While I feel too many romances rely on soap opera esque dr [...]

      Actual Rating 3.5 starsThis was a pretty good sports romance I love when the author throws in some actual on field action instead of just having the character be an athlete, but we never actually see them playing their sport I really liked Holly and Kepler Separately they were really interesting and together they were even better And I liked that Kepler was from South Africa, that added a nice touch to the story His background was really interesting and I wanted to know about him.I really liked [...]

      Having never read this author before, I went into this book with no expectations I was intrigued by the idea of such a different hero A man who s a blond haired football soccer player from South Africa.As a sports fan, if not a soccer fan, I enjoyed the different plotline Unfortunately, I wound up not liking the book as much as I d hoped I fault my own personal book snobbishness The author wrote well and created characters that hit sparks off of each other For me what I didn t like was the heroi [...]

      2.5 5 At the end of the day, if we don t take pride in where we re from and try to make it better, who will It was a decent read I was kind of hoping for a bit .I enjoyed the little references to South Africa that were weaves into the book I was kind of expecting for a little impromptu trip back to Kepler s homeland somewhere near the end of the book, to be honest.I wished that Holly would ve been upfront with Kepler and the trade New York situation She says she cared for him but she strung him [...]

      DNF at 75% I had several issues with this book most of them stemming from being South African myself but I have a thing for so called competence porn , and this heroine demonstrates the complete opposite of that I could swallow her lying and insecurities and mood swings and all her other irritating traits if she was excellent at her job, but her lack of professionalism is both a huge part of her personality AND a driving force behind the romance My opinion of her just got poorer and poorer as th [...]

      3.5 stars Listened to the audio version so didn t read I love Jessica Almasay as a narrator and in this book she did with multiple voices and characters then normal I m a huge soccer fan and former player so I was drawn to this storyline Plus I am living in North Carolina I enjoyed the story enough, but it wasn t one that is overly memorable or had me so drawn in that I couldn t put it down I wasn t sure why the hero was so drawn to the heroine and I would have loved for them to have interacti [...]

      Actual rating 3,5 stars The Striker s Chance is actually a pretty good book The writing is great The characters are likeable The story is sweet Good pace You have two people falling in love and overcoming lies, betrayal and trying to make it work despite their circumstances Good concept, good execution It was all in all a good book But it was not a great book in the sense of it could have been edgier, sexier, romantic I m going to sound cray cray, but I m thinking it was slightly too realistic, [...]

      This was a wonderful change from the sad dystopian book I had just finished and it was just what I needed I am a huge soccer fan so I was interested to see how that would tie into a romance novel It was cute, nothing phenomenal but I did enjoy it The story skipped quite a bit I though, every time I read the next paragraph it was a few weeks or a few months later which was sad to me What I love about romance novels is watching the couple fall in love, the small moments not just skipping through i [...]

      A beautifully crafted romance and a great read Rebecca has a way with words her descriptions are magical I remember when she described Kepler s looks without a shirt on, how real he seemed and how desirable The story was great and kept me hooked I cringed in some spots, wishing Rebecca would realise how career focused she was but that was all part of the conflict and it s wonderful how Kepler and her love for him, changed her As a reader, I couldn t help falling in love with him as the story pro [...]
