My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Touchdown is a contemporary romance novel set within the world of American football. This is a steamy read, so if you’re looking for something more subtle, this is not the book for you. The heat starts instantly and does not stop until the very end of the book. This feels like a very promising start to a series and I cannot wait to read more.

This is a full on read. From start to finish, Touchdown brings the heat, drama and emotion. Our leading lady, Lexi Driver, is a woman we all would love to be. Spending her life inside a football team’s changing room, she has seen it all. And it’s fair to say she loves it. She is a strong, sassy and sexy woman that isn’t afraid to speak her mind. I liked Lexi from the beginning, and grew to like her even more over the course of the book. Yes, she has her flaws (maybe she should have just apologised for that whole incident to start with) but she has been through so much in her life. As the story went on, I found myself really feeling for her and everything she was going through.

A sports romance isn’t complete without a sexy man to raise the temperature. Brett Brock is just that man. He had a rough start, I’ll give him that, but I have to admit I had a love hate relationship with him. While you can see why he wanted revenge, his way of doing so was questionable. I spent a good portion of the book on the edge of my seat, waiting to see if he would in fact release the recordings he had made. While some tension is good, I have to admit that this is one of the things that drives me mad when reading! I won’t spoil what happens, but I was so pleased when it finally did. This really moved the story along and finally, I could breathe again!

Overall, Touchdown is a really fantastic sports romance read. It stands-out for its steaminess as this is definitely not your average read. If your looking for a romance that offers just that bit more, this is definitely one for you.
