“Trust me, I’ve wanted to punch you in the face a time or five.”

When the man you worshipped as a kid becomes your coach, it’s supposed to be the greatest thing in the world. Keywords: supposed to.

It didn’t take a week for twenty-seven-year-old Sal Casillas to wonder what she’d seen in the international soccer icon—why she’d ever had his posters on her wall, or ever envisioned marrying him and having super-playing soccer babies.

Sal had long ago gotten over the worst non-break-up in the history of imaginary relationships with a man that hadn’t known she’d existed. So she isn’t prepared for this version of Reiner Kulti who shows up to her team’s season: a quiet, reclusive, shadow of the explosive, passionate man he’d once been.

Nothing could have prepared her for the man she got to know.

Or the murderous urges he brought out in her.

“Sal, please don’t make me visit you in jail. Orange isn’t your color.”

This was going to be the longest season of her life.


"...So as long as you don't say something so stupid again, I can live with it this once, Reindeer."
The look he gave me was blank for so long, I wasn't expecting him to react the way he did.  I thought for sure he'd argue with me some more about how I needed to get over being pissed at him, however small the amount.
He didn't.
Instead almost a minute after I finished talking, the doors were opening to the main level of the office building, Kulti burst out laughing.  I swear he said something like "Reindeer" under his monster laughs. (Kindle location 4086)

They call each other names.  It's hysterical really.  The German is quiet and the book is a very slow burn but I'm loving it.

Tradition Be Damned (Last Hope, #1)It is the end of days…

Taken from her family at birth, and raised by the mystic Sisterhood, Anne understands she will fight the demons for the rest of her life. Often referred to as the Weird Sister, Anne longs for a life she knows she can never have and dreams of her five guards affections although she believes they hold her in disdain.

She couldn’t be more wrong.

Bryant, Mason, Garrett, Kieran and Milo see Anne for who she is and they’ve loved her every day they’ve known her, although they can never see her face. Fate has chosen them as her beloveds and when the already destroyed world falls apart, they will see they are meant to be…and that maybe all hope is not lost at all. Maybe it is just the beginning.


All of them sucked in their breaths, but it was Mason who spoke. "You think we hate you? You think I hate you?" 
The implication was there. How could I think that after last night? "Mason, I decided last night you didn't." 
Bryant touched his heart. "I could never hate you." 
Garrett shook his head. "Never." 
Kieran stepped forward. "Not for one single moment."

So glad I finally have some time to sit down and read this book because I am LOVING it!
