” I’m always all in for a sports family and the Harris brothers are just the right kind of sexy that I want to continue reading about.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve had this book on my radar for a long time.  Really, since it came out.  But I had never read the author and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to give it a shot.  I was looking for soccer romances to read because… World Cup!  and they are surprisingly hard to find, let me tell you.  It seems you can’t ever run out of football and hockey romances but other sports are certainly lacking.  Authors, get on it!  But back to this book.  I couldn’t resist the cover and had to give it a try.  And I’m so glad I did!

Set in London, this book is about Camden Harris who is a star soccer player with a bad injury and his doctor and surgeon Indie Porter.  Indie is extremely smart and has achieved already a lot of recognition for her young age.  Being in charge of the surgery and recovery that could make or break an athlete’s career is no joke and can really jump start the rest of her own career.  But the attraction between them is instant and Camden fits Indie’s list perfectly to be Penis #1 and lose her virginity.

This book was surprisingly a lot of fun.  Not quite over the top humor, but it certainly made me smile.  Indie is quirky enough to make me believe some of her actions throughout this story.  And while Camden is the player (on and off the field) I really liked seeing him come to terms with his feelings and not fight them like you usually see with playboys.  I think he came across as more mature than Indie did, but it also made sense that was the case.  These two were certainly perfect together.  CHALLENGE has a lot of chemistry and it’s a great soccer romcom.

I’ve read this book had some spelling or grammatical errors, but keep in mind I listened to the audiobook so that was not an issue I had to face.  It also has 3 narrators so it was fun to hear the change of narrator for certain characters.  It was well done!  Plus, this first book in the series was part of the Audible Romance package so if you’re looking for something to listen, give it a whirl.  The rest of the series isn’t included on it though.

I’m left really looking forward to the rest of the series.  I’m always all in for a sports family and the Harris brothers are just the right kind of sexy that I want to continue reading about.

About Amy Daws

Amy Daws is a goof of epic proportions. She enjoys making dumb videos and laughing at herself...a lot. It gets awkward. She thinks she should have tried her hand at improv theater but figured she'd learn how life looks behind the lens of a camera first.

She also thinks talking about herself in the third person isn't awkward at all.

Amy lives in South Dakota with her husband, Kevin, and their miracle daughter, Lorelei. The long-awaited birth of Lorelei is what inspired Amy’s first book, Chasing Hope, and her passion for writing.

Amy's contemporary romance books are a part of the The London Lovers Series and currently have two installments out with more to come. Her writing style is emotional and self-deprecating with awkward humor sprinkled in. Basically, if she makes you cry happy and sad tears...she's achieved her goal. Extra points if you have to blow your nose.

Amy's inspiration for writing is and always will be her six precious angel babies and her daughter, Lorelei. On most nights, you can find Amy and her family dancing to Strawberry Shortcake’s theme song or stuffing themselves inside children’s-sized playhouses because there is nothing they wouldn’t do for their little miracle.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
