Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.

He's the newly drafted quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words.
Ready to score.

I'm an athletic intern, and the coach's daughter.
Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.
Completely off-limits.

The NFL is full of rules. Rules I've never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched--until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don't-give-a-f*ck attitude.

After I almost injure my father's star player, I volunteer to make sure he's in top shape. At first, it's hell. I don't like his cockiness, his easy smile. Don't like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.

That doesn't stop me from wanting him.

He's meant to be a distraction--something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I'm forced to leave football behind forever.

I know what we're doing will lead nowhere good. I know we're crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.

None of that matters.

But maybe it should.

Rules aren't meant to be broken.

Or are they?

Lucas has just been drafted as a quarterback for Chicago. Football is his life, but he SO wanted out of his home city. He was dreaming of New England.
But it is what it is and now he's fighting with everything he has to secure his spot on the team.
Enter Gillian. She's the coach's daughter and the team's athletic trainer intern.
She's the one helping Lucas to not land on the injured list in his first NFL season - because it was kinda her fault he got hurt in the first place.
Huge attraction on both sides, but neither can risk their future for a little training camp fling... or can they? And will it just be a little fling????



I loove football and this was just perfect. I started reading the book the day of the first game of the new NFL season and it got me all fired up for later that night! ☺ Even though my Gronk and his Tom lost :(

Lucas is this extremely sexy & cocky college football superstar....

But now here in Chicago, he has to prove his worth. And more importantly, he has to prove that he's not only this cocky college hero. He needs to take his career seriously.
And starting something with the coach's daughter is not really going to help his reputation....

I loved reading this book.
It was funny, sexy, adorable, a bit sad and frustrating and moving.
90% of the story takes place at the team's training camp in Florida. So the book is a lot footbally - maayyyybe a tad too much for non-football-loving people! ☺
And it might've been a bit too ... slow for me? Not really slow. Things are happening. And I loved all the things. ☺ But ... I didn't really feel a connection to Gillian and Lucas in the beginning - and I didn't much feel the feels between them either. BUT - that might also be due to my mood that day :/ No idea. I really liked the story!! And it definitely got better the more I read!
Don't let me scare you away.... it was an adorable football romance!!!!

HOT STUFF was an adorable & funny & sexy & moving Football Love Story!!!! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Lucas - this one is MINE!!!!

ARC received for an honest review

It is always a good day when a new Kim Karr story turns up on your kindle.

Now, I am not a football fan at all (soooo don't understand it!) but I dived right into this one.

I am not sure if it was my state of mine (I had been sickish for days) or if it was just this one book, however I really struggled to get started with Hot Stuff.  Once I got about 30% in I was fine, but I did put this one down a few times and it took me a few days to read it - but this is probably just all me!

Once I got going, I really enjoyed Lucas and Gillian's story.  Hot Stuff is funny, sexy, adorable with a bit of sadness thrown in too.

It took me a while to connect with both Lucas and Gillian, again this could just be my mind set as I was reading.

I adored the forbidden, taboo-ness of their relationship - it's nothing bad, but you can understand why it is frowned up.  I just wanted them to decide if what they had was going to be enough for them.

And to find out, you have to read for yourself.

Whilst I did like Hot Stuff, I just didn't love it like I have with other books of Ms Karr.  It was a case of it's not you, it's me with this one.

I look forward to seeing what Ms Karr brings us next.


Disappointed, she unwrapped her arms from her body, and then pivoted on her toe in the direction of the open door. “Then it looks like we have nothing further to discuss, Lucas.”
I reached for her and tugged her to me. “I don’t want to want you,” I breathed, my mouth hovering just centimeters from hers.
Gillian tried to pull away, but not whole-heartedly. If she wanted me to let her go, I would have, but I knew she didn’t. “Then stop,” she sighed.
I took her face in my hands. “I can’t. I don’t know how to.”
“Neither do I,” she whispered.
Unable to stop myself, I crashed my lips to hers and drove my tongue into her mouth to retrace every inch that I had explored days ago.
