The Second Coming (Rogue Academy #1) by Carrie Aarons
They call him the second coming.
Of honor for British football.
Of God in an athlete’s body.
Of every English woman’s fantasy.
Jude Davies is my country’s prodigy on the pitch. More famous than the nobility in Buckingham Palace, he and his merry band of scoundrels rule the Rogue Football Academy and the London nightlife scene alike.
And now, he’s aiming his well-honed set of skills directly at me. His devilish charm is lethal, but with the tragic hand life has dealt me, distractions like him aren’t an option.
Plus, we’re only playing a game. One of convenience, where he needs me to save his reputation, and I need his money to save the one person I love.
Until he wraps me around that immoral finger.
Until I crave that reckless, wild high he provides.
Until I hope for a future that will never happen.
That’s the thing about going toe-to-toe with the next football legend. He’s faster, stronger, and will destroy me every time.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was absolutely fabulous! I couldn’t stop laughing, and totally enjoyed the humorous back and forth between Jude and Aria! From what I understand, this is the first book in and new series, and if it’s any indication of what’s to come, I can’t wait!
Jude is the golden boy of the Rogue Football League. At the top of his game, his star is on the rise, and he knows it! He works hard at the game he loves, but plays harder! He has no intentions of slowing down any time soon. Until Aria crosses his path, that is. He can’t take his eyes off her, or get her out of his mind!
Aria is just amazing! She is a hard worker, strong enough to take what life throws at her and keep going. And she doesn’t let her head be turned by Jude’s arrogance or star power.
This book has a bit of a fairy tale feel to me. I mean, it has the Prince (of football!) and the girl who works herself to the bone. And a happy ever after! Who could ask for more? This book was the perfect balance of angsty drama and steamy chemistry, exactly what I need to have me hooked from page 1! I can’t wait to see what this author has in store for us next!
