As if things aren’t already tough enough as the only girl on a college football team, Coach had to go and assign Zeke Collins as my roommate.

A cocky kick returner and my brother’s best friend who should have been ripped of that title years ago, he’s as infuriating as he is undeniably sexy.

I hate him, and for good reason — reason I won’t ever let him forget.

He thinks because we grew up together that it’s his role to protect me, but all he does is get in my way, make me look weak, and piss me off more.

I tell him I can handle myself, and I’m hell-bent on getting that point across to him and the rest of the nation watching the only girl in collegiate football.

The pressure doesn’t get to me. The scrutiny? I’m ready for.

But sharing very thin walls with Zeke Collins? I wasn’t prepared for that.

And the more we’re forced together, the harder it is to distinguish that pencil-thin line between hating him… and wanting him.

Fair Catch is my first Kandi Steiner book, so I had no idea what to expect diving into this new author/book adventure. But once I dove in and started reading, I found something pretty great, as this new adult story was fast-paced, well-written, and the lead characters are both complex and charming.

I really loved the premise here. Best friend’s sister, enemies to lovers, and roommates all combined in one new adult sports romance. When the story starts, Riley makes her injured brother a promise to tryout as a football kicker while also vowing not to forgive the man she deems responsible for her brother’s accident, his best friend, Zeke. This setups up the main storyline for the book, where Zeke is on the college team Riley is trying to secure a spot as a punt kicker on. They end up as roommates, with the whole hate-love thing going on.

Fabulous writing, great characterization, excellent goals, motivation, and conflict, steamy love scenes, and a satisfying ending. I loved how both Riley and Zeke had to fight for different types of respect. And how they had to fight to learn how to communicate with each other, despite having known each other most of their lives. They were a delight to read, and so were all of the side characters.

If you’re looking for a well-written, fast-paced, first-person dual point of view sports romance that will sweep you up in the ambiance and have you rooting for all the characters, this might just be the book for you. I enjoyed it a lot and absolutely cannot wait for the second book in the series.

About Kandi Steiner

Kandi Steiner

Kandi Steiner is an Amazon Top 5 bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.”

She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, planning her next adventure, or pole dancing (yes, you read that right). She enjoys live music, traveling, playing with her fur babies and soaking up the sweetness of life.
