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.

When your career goes up in smoke, there are many ways you can handle the situation. For Matt – the lack of abilities on the field did not dampen his desire to ‘make it big’. Instead of kicking a ball on the field, Matt found his calling representing other players as their agent. To say that the career choice was profitable would be an understatement. Matt has worked hard to earn the livelihood that now graces his doorstep.


Matt is about to have his life turned upside down when his sister Willow moves into his home. Willow wants to learn the ins and outs of the business from the one person she looks up to most in this world. Did I mention that Matt has a hard time telling Willow ‘no’? That lack of attention to the things Willow asks for is about to turn Matt’s world around. When Willow shows up, it’s with her friend Park in tow.


With soccer as her main focus, Parker found her career in a downward spiral.  No one wanted to even entertain talking to her about a career move after the fiasco on the field. After meeting Matt, Parker is hopeful that he can revive her career in spite of the secrets that she is keeping. Does Matt possess the magic to rebound Parker’s career while helping her secure a deal that would be life changing?


Kickin’ It is the second installment in the Red Card series by Rachel Van Dyken. This installment centers around Matt and career as a sports agent. With Matt trying to revamp Parker’s career, anything can and WILL happen. The banter between these two characters had me laughing at times, while pulling me in when the secrets surrounding Parker’s career came to light. I loved the fact that this novel brought to light one of the challenges that many individuals face when dealing with their careers. Kickin’ It is definitely one for the negotiating table and the playing field!!
