Love breaks the offside rule in New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken’s irresistibly sexy Red Card romance.
Successful, high-profile sports agent Matt Kingston thinks he can handle anything. Then soccer player Parker Speedman shows up at his door. She is young and gorgeous, has natural talent, and is looking for a team. She’s also a hothead with a punchy past who floored her last coach on live TV. Despite his misgivings, Matt agrees to be both her agent and her coach. Professional common sense says she’s off-limits. But what can he say about the raw attraction between them?
Parker plays soccer with her heart and soul. But after the events of the last year, she’s shaken. She’s already seen what a powerful man can do to a female athlete’s career. And her beloved dream is in the hands of a sexy, gorgeous man with the uncanny ability to slip past her defenses…and into her heart.
Now Matt and Parker are about to learn that when it comes to love, the only way to win is by breaking every rule they know. And by playing nice. Real nice.
“I like you, I care about you, and when you care about someone you want to take care of them. I just don’t know how to do that without ruining what we have. I don’t know how to be the bossy agent but also be your boyfriend.”

I read a lot of angsty books, darker romance stories, and anything that pushes you outside your comfort zone. When I want a “pallet cleanser” or something to just break up the flow of darker stories – I pick up something lighter. Rachel is great at delivering the lighter, heart-warming, fun romance I’m looking for when I need it.
This is the follow up to Risky Play, which was book 1 in the Red Card series. They are both stand-alone books but reading them both are better in my opinion. I loved getting inside Matt Kingston’s head. He was one of my favorites from the first book. The rest of the guys are in this book, and I just love those guys. I really hope we get Jagger’s book next.
This is fun, flirty, and sweet. Rachel delivers a book full of her signature banter, swoony moments, and smoking hot chemistry. I thoroughly enjoyed this latest release in the Red Card series.
“Prove it and I’ll get you everything.”
“That’s a mighty big promise, Matt Kingston.”
