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.
