Publisher: H.S. Roberts
Synopsis: Cami Avesque is a shy, wannabe journalist, working for the largest newspaper in Ohio. She’s stuck editing classified ads until she lands her big break. That break comes when the only female sports reporter goes on bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy. For some reason, Cami is chosen to cover The Slam, a rugby team in Colt, Ohio. They have a chance of going all the way to the Rugby League Championship.

Unfortunately, Cami has a poor track record with jocks and going all the way is one of her problems. Because of her past, she hides her assets behind clothes that are a size too large and big glasses that camouflage the sexual sizzle that eats ripped bodies for lunch. Shy, she must remember she’s shy. If only man muscle didn't bring her wild side out to play she might survive a rugby try.

Gorgeous brothers, Van and Joel Stelson, own, manage, and play for The Slam. They see through Cami’s cover up and attack in order to make their goal. Who will be the first to get her in bed? Who will be the first to win her heart?

Remember in rugby… 80 Minutes, 15 Positions, No Protection, Lets Ruck!

What I Thought:

I've enjoyed Holly's Completion series.  Each book can be read as a stand alone.  Kick  is the third book in this series and features two rugby players who happen to be brothers.  I found the dynamic to be very interesting.

I read Kick  fairly quickly.  It's well written and interesting.  I'm not a huge fan of triangles and even less so when they involve siblings.  It's a guarantee someone is going to get hurt and when it's family involved, the hurt is deeper and harder to shake off.  I liked Cami.  I also liked Van and Joel.  Both of them have different personalities and that plays a large role in how the story plays out.

I was a little let down by the mystery surrounding Cami's assignment.  There was all this build up and then nothing.  The ending was very sweet.  I do hope this series continues and eager to see which sport and how it'll be featured.

About the Author
I began writing as a child and cut my teeth on Edgar Allan Poe, Louisa May Alcott, and Alexandre Dumas. Even then I was a warped romantic and found a kinky passion in Poe's writing. I moved on to Jude Deveraux, Judith McNaught, and Bertrice Small. As my life experience grew so did my reading tastes and I found I loved the authors who pushed the romantic envelope; Mary Balogh's A Precious Jewel comes to mind.

I love the outdoors and have hiked the Grand Canyon three times. Gardening continues to be my muse and listening to my pond's waterfall sets the mood for day dreaming which easily turns to writing.

At age twelve a boy across campus was pointed out to me and I instantly fell in love. Four years later he finally took notice and became the love of my life. I tend to write "love at first sight" because I live it. My teenage heartthrob and I live in the Southwest United States with our Rottweiler and Chihuahua. They have us well trained and we obey all commands.
I love books, chick flicks, coffee, chocolate, and wine. The order depends on my mood.
