Trent Carrington.
Trent Mr. Perfect-Has-Everyone-Fooled Carrington.
He’s the star quarterback, university scholar, and happens to be the sexiest man I’ve ever seen. He shines at any angle, and especially under the Saturday night stadium lights where I watch him from the sidelines. But I know the real him, the one who broke my heart and pretended I didn’t exist for the past two years.
I’m the third-string kicker, the only woman on the team and nothing better than a mascot. Until I’m not. Until I get my chance to earn a full scholarship and join the team as first-string. The only way I'll make the cut is to accept help from the one man I swore to never trust again. The problem is, with each stolen glance and lingering touch, I begin to realizing that trusting Trent isn’t the problem. It’s that I can’t trust myself when I’m around him.

This is a full-length, standalone American football romance novel with hot guys in tight pants who really know how to handle their balls.


My Review:

     I am a Celia Aaron fan so I usually can't wait to get my hands on anything that she writes. 
Kicked is a different read for me, I am not use to picturing a woman in a male dominated sport. Trying to get my mind around different scenarios ( locker room and the football field) took some time. It did not hinder the story one bit because I was grabbed from the beginning by
 the characters.

     Trent Carrington, star quarterback, gorgeous, and his patient heart grabbed me from the start. With having a female third string kicker on the team, that did not seem to bother him. The fact that she is the one that he truly loved and broke her heart 2 yrs ago may be a problem to the team. Trent doesn't see it that way, having her close and willing to do anything to win her back is the only thing he has in mind.

     Cordelia " Cordy" Baxter is surround by sweaty men on the football field but her eyes seem to only be on the star quarterback Trent. His smile, body and his sweet remarks may not be enough to undo the hurt that he caused the night he broke her heart. Cordy needs to try and earn a full scholarship and the only way she can do it is by becoming the teams first- string kicker.  Trent is more than willing to help her get that position, but will all that time practicing bring them together or be a reminder of the pain she is not willing to go through again? 

     I was given a ARC for a honest review and I truly enjoyed reading Kicked. It has that young second chance romance with lots of steamy passion. This story had me laughing, heartbroken, furious, heated, smiling and at times on the edge of suspense. The characters surrounding Cordelia and Trent are memorable. I love the football aspect part of the story but it does go beyond that, the story of their family, friends, insecurities, and the renewal of a love that was set aside years ago. It is a 5 star read!

A movie started playing on the back of each seat, but I focused on Cordy. Her polo was unbuttoned, and I could see the swell of her breast. My cock went from fight mode to fuck mode in the time it took me to shift more toward Cordy.
“Are we…” She nibbled her lip.
I grabbed her chin and turned her to face me. “What?”
“Are we like, together?” She stumbled over her next words, as if she couldn’t get them out fast enough. “I know it’s too early to DTR—”
“DTR?” I grinned.
“Define the relationship.” She furrowed her brow.
“Right. Well, I define it as you’re mine and I’m yours. How’s that?”
Her gaze brightened. My phone buzzed again, but I ignored it.
“Someone’s calling you.” She glanced to my pants.
“It’s my mother.”
“Oh.”
I’d told Cordy about the difficulties I had with my mom, but I didn’t go into the details of how much acrimony our relationship would stir up. Mom had no doubt seen the press conference. She would know. Mom always knew. She was waiting for me to pick up the phone so she could load me down with Carlotta’s tears, my family’s legacy, and the bright future she thought I was throwing away. I’d deal with it. Later.
I leaned close to Cordy’s ear. “Put your jacket on your lap.”
She turned to me, a wary look on her heart-shaped face. “Why?”
“It’s cold.”
“Not really.”
“You’re trembling.”
She arched a brow. “Not because I’m cold.”
“Then why?”
“Because you—” She seemed to rethink her answer and, instead of responding, pulled her jacket into her lap as I’d requested.
“Good. My hands are cold.” I slid my palm along her thigh beneath the jacket.
She jumped and looked at me with a scandalized expression. “Trent!” She hissed through clenched teeth.
“What?” I pressed my fingers higher until I reached the apex of her thighs, then I eased my hand between her legs.
“We can’t do this here.” She glanced around, but no one could see us in the dark, and if anyone was looking, all they’d see was us sitting together and Cordy’s jacket in her lap.
I rubbed my index finger along the seam of her jeans over her clit. “We can.”
She gripped my wrist, but I didn’t stop. Her breathing grew faster as I stroked her. My cock demanded reciprocity, but it would have to wait. I wanted to pleasure her more than anything. When her lips parted, I knew I had her.
I pressed my lips to her ear. “Unbutton your jeans, and unzip them.”
She tilted her hips forward and did as I’d said.
“You’ll have to be quiet.” I ran my fingers along her quivering stomach and she let out a small sound.
