The Blurb:

College freshman Lucia Ramirez has a secret crush on Dane Monroe. He’s a tall drink of water — blond, brash, and one hell of a volleyball player. ¡Híjole! Lucia hopes her volleyball scholarship to his school will make him notice her.

Too bad what’s noticeable is Dane’s obvious hatred for Lucia. Her family’s politics contradict everything he stands for. And politics are front and center in both their families. Dane’s mother is about to face Lucia’s father in the race for US President.

When Secret Service throws them together, Dane can’t deny his frustrating attraction to Lucia’s athletic curves and sweet faith in the world. Amid the intense pressure of college athletics and presidential politics, can opposites not just attract, but overcome overwhelming odds to be together? Or do their differences block their match from the start?

My Review:

This is a new adult sport romance – and you don’t even need to know what volleyball is to enjoy the battles these two children-of-Presidential-candidates engage in on their quest to stop repressing their feelings towards their polar political opposites.

Lucia Ramirez, daughter of the Republican Presidential candidate, has a secret crash on Dane Monroe, son of the Democrat’s Presidential candidate. When Secret Service bundle them into a single safe-house, things move in entirely unexpected (for them) and intoxicatingly wonderfully (for us) directions.

Light and sweet, yet passionately written, this is surprisingly addictive. Romance, sport, political debates and finding the commonalities in outwardly opposite beliefs all blend beautifully in this fast-paced romance. I just could not get these characters out of my head – and that’s quite something when they are immature, occasionally obnoxious, overly-stressed students. I want more!
