Taken from Goodreads

Sydney Smoke star recruit Kyle Leighton can’t believe the best sex of his life was just a one-night stand. He didn’t even know her name… Until she shows up at the locker room two weeks later and he connects the dots.

Val King. Oh shit.

Coach has one hard and fast rule: Never, ever date (much less f*ck ten ways to Sunday) his daughter. And not only did Kyle break that rule, but he wants to break it over and over again. In the shower. Against a wall. On every flat surface in his home.

But the coach and his daughter share more than just DNA. Their issues run deep and fooling around with her could widen the family chasm.

And get Kyle benched for life.

So why can’t he stop thinking about her? Flirting with her? Suggesting they date for real and damn the consequences?

4.5 Stars

I really love sports romances. My first book in the “Sydney Smoke Rugby” series didn’t disappoint! I’m definitely going to read the rest as well!

Kyle is the hottest thing in rugby. Valerie is his coach’s daughter and definitely off-limits but he doesn’t know that. They meet at a bar where Valerie goes to “celebrate” her 24th birthday alone. They spend the night together and after that Kyle can’t stop thinking about her.

The chemistry between Kyle and Valerie is off the charts. I like how Kyle is not the typical athlete playboy but he is sweet and considerate. Valerie is hurt because her dad is distant and the only thing she wants is for him to show her some love; I really felt for her. The gesture that Kyle does at the end of the book is something else. Girls you really need to get yourself a man like that!! The epilogue is really sweet and wraps up the story perfectly!
