Quarterback Holden Moore can have any girl he wants.
Except me: the coach’s daughter.
With piercing green eyes, herculean biceps, and irresistible dimples, Holden is the number one target for every girl on campus. But according to his teammates, football is the only love of his life.
He’s their leader, their QB1 and team captain who is all business and no play.
But when I’m with him? Mr. Serious isn’t serious at all. He loves to push my buttons, to pin me with those sexy eyes of his and tease me until I bite back.
I remind him I’m off limits.
He can’t have me, and I don’t want him — or anyone else, for that matter.
I’m here for one reason: to show my father I’m more than his greatest disappointment.
But when an old injury flares up and I’m forced to work with Holden every day as his athletic trainer, his attempts to get under my skin start becoming harder to resist.
We can’t give in, no matter how much the air crackles between us when we’re close.
I’m the coach’s daughter, and if Holden Moore wants to go pro, he’s got to play by daddy’s rules.
Otherwise, he’ll be off the team.
And he’s not the only one with something to lose.

I was so excited to finally get our captain and quaterback’s story. Holden is the rock and glue of the team and he deserves love!
I loved seeing a different side of Holden in this book. He was kinda goofy and looser with Julep than we usually see him. As team captain, he’s strong and stoic and has to keep everyone in line. It was so nice to see the real him and the effect Julep had on him.
The epilogue to this book was the best ever! It wrapped up Holden and Julep’s story really well and just gave the book an overall sweetness after having so much grief and heartache mixed in.
Overall, this was the book and romance Holden needed and I’m so glad he got it. Now, onto Leo and Mary!

Kandi Steiner is an Amazon Top 5 bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.”
She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, planning her next adventure, or pole dancing (yes, you read that right). She enjoys live music, traveling, playing with her fur babies and soaking up the sweetness of life.

We like the forbidden romance trope. This reminds us of Whatever Life Throws at You.
