Ryan Hunter’s parties are legend. And tonight she’s going to be there.
Liza Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she’s a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Liza craves, she’s just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she’s prepared to play ball to get her man.
The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school. Ryan Hunter.

Wow. I love this book. Full review when I wake up later. ;)
Morning came… and I still love this novella. I think this is the first book after months that really made me giddy because of the sweetness? Ah! I don’t know what to phrase it in English but we do have this word in Tagalog called ‘kilig’.
kilig (KEE-lig) – To shiver. When used in topics of love and romance, it means to shiver with delight when something romantic or cute…
That’s what I freakin’ felt while reading this novella. I’m grinning from ear to ear (Thank God it’s night time when I read this), stupidly feeling happy and I’ve been biting my lower lip while reading to stop myself from smiling. BUT I JUST CAN’T HELP IT.
“I strongly suggest you don’t do that. During a game you will have to stop the ball. But you’re not allowed to use your hands. So you use your body to block it. Your shoulders, or head, but mostly your chest.”
“Aha. There’s only one problem with that.” I cupped my boobs with both hands. “I’ve got these!”
Struck silent, his gaze traveled from my eyes downward and didn’t return. The spark in his eyes almost scared me. Like I was Snow White and he was the…Hunter. In fact, I didn’t want to even imagine what thoughts crossed his mind right then. I sapped my fingers between our faces.
“Eyes up here.” He obeyed. Reluctantly. The sliver of an impish smile crept to his lips.
It’s a light novella, a bit predictable, BUT I really love it cause it made me really really smile, an honest-to-goodness smile. An innocent smile and laugh, not the smile because I know something would lead to something adult-like. LOL. I’ve been reading new-adult books a lot now, so this is just a good change of pace.
