Sunny Shelly’s Review: Falling For The Rookie by Carina Rose

 Release Date: February 7

People rarely catch me off guard. I’m Collin St. James, after all, starting wide receiver for the Virginia Thunder, and playing football has kept me on my toes. But nothing could have prepared me to mentor our newest teammate, kicker Charlie Nicholson.

I wasn’t caught off guard because I had to take someone under my wing, or because Charlie was easily banging sixty-yard kicks through the uprights. It happened when the rookie’s silver helmet came off and long blonde hair spilled out. Completely baffled, I edged closer and took in the prettiest blue eyes I’d ever seen.

Charlie wasn’t only a complete knockout, she was also my younger sister’s closest friend, and when she smiled at me, I knew right then and there I was in serious trouble.

The last thing I needed was a distraction, but thanks to my gorgeous new teammate—and, to my surprise, my roommate—that was exactly what I got.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Charlie had plans to be a physician when she got sidetracked by a brief career as a kicker for a pro football team. She happens to end up on the team that her best friend’s older brother, Collin, plays for and ends up as his roommate. Oh yeah, Charlie has always had a crush on Collin…

Collin isn’t exactly thrilled when he’s asked to mentor the team’s new kicker. And he’s absolutely stunned to find out that the kicker is the first female in the league. The awkwardness between Charlie and Collin is delicious at first, and it evolves into sizzling sexual tension before they eventually start to fall for each other.

When the unexpected happens and Charlie is forced to make a life-changing decision, will she decide that Collin is her future or her dream is still to go to med school? (There’s a lovely full-circle moment with a motivational quote that I adored.)

I loved the concept of this forced proximity, football romance, and I enjoyed the cameos from the other characters in this series. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
