Gear up for an all-the-feels, steamy slow-burn in this enemies-to-lovers sports romance about fighting for love when life’s taught you it’s a losing game.
We’ve been teammates for two years, but it feels like a lifetime that Oliver Bergman’s been on my last nerve. A demanding captain and veteran player, I’m feared and friendless, while he’s the beloved rising star, all sunshine smiles and upbeat team spirit. To make matters worse, he’s obscenely attractive. In short: he’s genetically designed to get under my skin.
Avoiding Oliver has been my survival tactic on and off the field. But when Coach drops the bomb that we’re now co-captains, avoiding him becomes impossible, and keeping the truth from him–let alone my distance–is harder than ever.
Life was great until soccer legend Gavin Hayes joined the team and proved he’s nothing like the guy I grew up idolizing. Instead, he’s a giant–albeit gorgeous–grump who lives to rain on my parade. I’ve sworn off pranks since entering the public eye, so rather than settle our differences the Bergman way, I’ve had to settle for killing Gavin with kindness. There’s just one problem: killing him with kindness is killing me.
To make matters worse, Coach gives us an ultimatum: put an end to our enmity or say goodbye to being captains. I’m prepared to be miserable while we meet her demands and make nice, but the last thing I expect is to discover an explosive attraction we can’t help but act on, and worse yet, to realize the man hiding beneath Gavin’s gruff exterior is all I’ve ever wanted.
It was my first full audiobook with the narrator. He narrated both characters, and somehow made it sound like they each had their own uniqueness. Each character has his own voice timbre.
The beautiful Bergman Brothers
I’ve been waiting for this book from the minute the author announced it.
I love the Bergman Brothers and I knew Oliver’s book would be interesting!
After 4 FM books in the series, this book was MM.
This book was very special.
The author knows how to touch our hearts and how to make us feel like we’re experiencing everything with the characters and this book was no different.
Oliver was sunshine and happiness and positivity while Gavin was grumpy, and gloominess and basically the exact opposite from Oliver.
My heart broke for Gavin and his story went straight to my heart.
However, deep inside, they were pretty much the same.
They both wanted to do what they love, they both noticed the other and decided to stay away.
I love what the characters brought out of each other. I loved what they did for each other.
Their connection was close even when they didn’t communicate much. They were special. Their connection was special.
I love the whole Bergman family and I can’t wait to read about the two remaining siblings
