My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Callie Thompson has spent her life around basketball. Sports is her life, it is in her blood and that is why she is studying journalism at the University of Oklahoma. All she wants to do when she graduates from Uni is be a broadcaster of sports it has always been her life’s dream. To help pay her way she is a dancer for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Callie may love the sport but after being burned and had her heart broken she lives by her rule and that rule is to never ever date an athlete. But with her Dad and best friends by her side she has all she needs, or does she?

Kyle Kelly is only twenty six but he is the best at what he does and that is play for the Oklahoma Thunder. He is currently the man and everybody loves the sexy charismatic man and pure gentleman. All he has ever wanted to do is play basketball and he knows he is damn lucky to be where he is but winning an NBA championship would be the icing on the cake. But is he unknowingly missing something?

Will Callie’s dream come true? Will she break the one rule she has lived by? Will Callie find herself back in the same situation with her heart shattered? Can Callie learn to trust again? Will Callie find love? Will Kyle win the heart of the spunky and sassy girl? Will he earn her trust? Will he lose the things he loves most in life? Will he remember what is important in life or will it be too late?

Enjoyed the characters in this story You are immediately drawn into the story by the characters that were fun, sassy, spunky and witty. I found myself laughing out loud at their antics. It was a great read from start to end. It was light hearted, funny and all round entertaining. Ashlie is a good writer and I can not wait to read more of her outstanding work. For those of you who like a good romance with a little sports thrown in then look no further.
