What if you had to do the one thing you hated most to get the guy you loved to notice you?

Ryan Hunter’s parties are legend. And tonight she’s going to be there.

Lisa Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she’s a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Lisa craves, she’s just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she’s prepared to play ball to get her man.

The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school… Ryan Hunter.


This book was short :’) Everything happened so fast and I felt like the author had skipped a lot of details and settings in the story.

This book I read because it was free on Amazon Kindle and I desperately needed something to get me in a reading mood again.

It wasn’t a really great book. I mean it’s ideal when you are looking for something easy to read but otherwise I don’t think I want to continue on with this series. As I understand there are four(I think) single standing novels in the Grover Beach Team series.

The main character Lisa was very unlikeable and I actually didn’t really care for her at all. She reasoned all of her thoughts and doings very stupidly.

Ryan was funny and I liked that. Funny and sassy characters are my absolute favourite. I don’t think I have that many bad things to say about him because even though the book was over 200 pages long, a reader gets to see very little of him.

The story had two side characters who made a longer appearance in the novel, there were surprisingly little extra characters here to spice up the whole book.

I feel like 2.5 stars is the best I could give this. There isn’t really anything to review here. Readable but not very likeable.
