Kendall Tracy, General Manager of the San Francisco Miners, is not one for rash decisions or one-night stands. But when she finds herself alone in a hotel room with a heart-stoppingly gorgeous man—who looks oddly familiar—Kendall throws her own rules out the window…and they blow right back into her face.

Drew McCoy should look familiar, he’s a star player for her team’s archrival the Seattle Sharks. Which would basically make Drew and Kendall the Romeo and Juliet of professional football…well, without all the dying.

Not that it’s an issue. They agree to pretend their encounter never happened. Nothing good can come from it anyway, right?

Drew’s not so sure. Kendall may be all wrong, but he can’t stop thinking about her and he finds that some risks are worth taking. Because the stakes are always highest when you’re playing for keeps.

Kassiah: You know I love football romances and I love Romeo & Juliet, so I wanted to read this one as soon as I heard about it. The summary for it is basically exactly what happens. Kendall and Drew have a one-time hookup, only to later discover that they’re basically archrivals. She’s the GM of one team, he’s the star of the other team. Of course, they can’t stop thinking about each other. Will they get past their jobs to be together or was one night enough for them?

First of all, I thought it was totally unbelievable that Kendall wouldn’t have known who Drew was. If his team wasn’t the rival of her team, then maybe. But even then, I would think that the GM of any NFL franchise would be familiar with the most important players on all of the teams in their division, even a temporary GM. And especially when you factor in that her team is trying to steal him. But that’s just me. *shrugs*

I thought Drew and Kendall had great chemistry and the story, including all of the football stuff, was interesting. I really liked Drew. He was sweet and swoony, but there was just something I didn’t love about this story. It was overall kind of meh for me. I didn’t care about them or if they worked it out–at all.

With instalust that turns into instalove and an unbelievable situation, Covering Kendall just wasn’t for me.
