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.
Kicked is Celia Aaron’s first novel that delves into New Adult territory. With a unique story line, America’s favourite pass time, light college drama and a whole lot of sex. Undoubtedly, Celia Aaron strikes gold again. Told as a second chance romance, Kicked is filled with a perfect combination of humour and heartfelt. Showing off her creativity and her ability to challenge herself, with different genres, Celia Aaron is once again giving readers many reasons to remain avid and loyal fans.
Kicked immediately delves into unique territory. Introducing Cordy Baxter, who under Title Nine is the first female football player in America, readers already know this story will be memorable. With a partial scholarship, Cody’s home life means she would do anything to have a full ride at school. Wanting to be the first string kicker for the Billingsley Bobcats, practice seems like the obvious thing to do. But practicing with Trent Carrington, is something Cody didn’t see coming.
Trent Carrington has everything – except the girl of his dreams. Pining over Cordy for the last two years, he has decided now is the time to strike. Determined to make her his, he will do ANYTHING to be with her. This includes telling her the one thing that might turn her away from him. The truth. Helping with kicking practice, Trent hopes that it serves its purpose and he can break down all of Cordy’s walls. Showing her what he’s known all along.
Told in dual POV’s, Celia Aaron ensures that readers are familiar with both characters and their headspace. As Cordy battles between her head and her heart and Trent is consumed by determination, their chemistry and banter is addictive and charming. Paired with hot sex, readers will be rooting for nothing but a reunion between the two. With football making a significant appearance throughout the story, readers are destined to fall in love with the Aaron’s attention to detail and ability to make something foreign (I’m Australian) sound so interesting. Having secondary characters that bring both charisma and drama, Kicked holds all the secret ingredients, for what is now one of my favourite New Adult reads.
