Blurb
Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling
author Kim Karr. 
 
He’s the newly drafted
quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too
sexy for words. 
Ready to score.
 
I’m an athletic
intern, and the coach’s daughter.
Driven. Determined.
Prepared to conquer the world.
Completely off-limits.
 
You get the picture.
 
The NFL is full of
rules. Rules I’ve never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched—until
the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and
I-don’t-give-a-f*ck attitude.
 
After I almost
injure my father’s star player, I volunteer to make sure he’s in top
shape. At first, it’s hell. I don’t like his cockiness, his easy smile. Don’t
like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me
everywhere. 
 
That doesn’t stop me
from wanting him.
 
He’s meant to be a
distraction—something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot
summer nights before I’m forced to leave football behind forever.
 
I know what we’re
doing will lead nowhere good. I know we’re crossing the line. And I know my
father will never understand.
 
None of that
matters.
 
But maybe it should.
 
Rules aren’t meant
to be broken.          
 
Or are they?

Must-Read Sports Romance

 

I absolutely ADORED this book by Kim Karr. Lucas Carrington is on the cusp of living his dream…playing for the NFL. All of his training and dedication have come down to this moment. However, he soon finds out dreams have some twists and turns and what you thought were your dreams become something else entirely. He was holding out for one team in the draft and leaving Chicago behind, but that doesn’t happen. He is not happy AT ALL! Things start looking up when the athletic trainer intern shows up. Gillian has known nothing except football her entire life, and this training camp is bittersweet. After it’s over, she will be leaving to pursue her own dreams. She always been around players, and they don’t affect her…that is until see lays eyes on Lucas for the very first time. Their first interaction is unforgettable, and from that moment on, their connection is undeniable. Both know being together is OFF LIMITS, especially when Lucas finds out Gillian is none other than the coach’s daughter!

Kim Karr came up with the perfect title for this book….Lucas is DEFINITELY HOT STUFF, both on and off the field. He’s built like a god, and he can quote Winnie the Pooh. Ladies, you can’t get better than this! Yeah, he has an attitude at times, but I couldn’t help but love him. As the story goes on, what really made me fall head over heels for him was his love for Gillian and putting her needs first even when it caused him pain.

I loved her as much as I loved Lucas. She was smart, beautiful, and determined. She isn’t afraid of going after what she wants, and she was a friend I would want in my corner. I loved the way Karr developed her character. Through her, I saw different parts of both Lucas and Gillian’s father’s personality. She softened Lucas somewhat and yet challenged him. She didn’t easily give into him, and she pushed him both in their relationship and his ability as an athlete. She also showed a different part of her father. To Lucas, Coach was formidable, but through Gillian, I got to see him as a father. He was an outstanding father who always tried to be the best for his daughter and tried to give her life some normalcy. He was also the first to admit his mistakes.

I love a good sports romance, and this one was AWESOME. Karr showed me just how hard being an NFL player can be! It definitely takes hard work and dedication. I loved the sexy banter between Gillian and Lucas. I completely enjoyed watching them fall for one another. If you are looking for a perfect combination of sexy and sweet, Hot Stuff is for you!

Excerpt
Disappointed, she unwrapped her arms from her body, and then
pivoted on her toe in the direction of the open door. “Then it looks like we
have nothing further to discuss, Lucas.”
I reached for her and tugged her to me. “I don’t want to
want you,” I breathed, my mouth hovering just centimeters from hers.
Gillian tried to pull away, but not whole-heartedly. If she
wanted me to let her go, I would have, but I knew she didn’t. “Then stop,” she
sighed.
I took her face in my hands. “I can’t. I don’t know how to.”
“Neither do I,” she whispered.
Unable to stop myself, I crashed my lips to hers and drove
my tongue into her mouth to retrace every inch that I had explored days ago.
