Going for the Goal

Ullstein Buchverlage

Ein sexy Eishockeyspieler, eine toughe Sportagentin und eine heiß-kalte Lovestory

Sportagentin Jillian Nichols arbeitet nach drei Grundsätzen:
Erstens: Arbeite niemals mit arroganten Mistkerlen. Zweitens: Arbeite niemals mit jemandem, dem du nicht vertraust. Und drittens: Arbeite niemals mit jemandem, den du dir schon mal nackt vorgestellt hast.
Seitdem sie Nick „The Punisher“ Salinger vor fast zehn Jahren zufällig kennen gelernt hat, hat Jillian ihn sich häufiger nackt vorgestellt, als sie zugeben möchte. Damals war sie Praktikantin und er ein vielversprechender Rookie in der NHL. Jetzt sitzt der Eishockeystar in ihrer kleinen Agentur und will, dass sie seinen Ruf und seine Karriere rettet. Denn Nick Salinger ist ein Bad Boy, bekannt für seine Hitzigkeit auf und neben dem Eis. Grund genug, um sich nicht auf ihn einzulassen, weder privat noch beruflich. Aber die Luft zwischen den beiden knistert auch nach all der Zeit immer noch gewaltig…

What happens when you fall for your biggest competition? Sara Rider scores with this charming romance about soccer stars battling their tough opponents and playing the field of love.

Lainey Lukas has sacrificed everything—sleep, family, carbs, a life—to earn her spot as the top player and captain of the Seattle Falcons women’s soccer team. She’s determined to lead her team to a national championship and finally earn the sport the respect it deserves—and nothing will throw her off her game. When Lainey’s hero Gabe Havelak, star of the Seattle Surge, crashes her team’s first press conference—making the Falcons look like a joke to the local media and humiliating Lainey in the process—she’s hell-bent on revenge.

Charming, confident Gabe is practically a god to Seattle soccer fans, but he doesn’t mind a little friendly competition from tough-as-nails Lainey, with her top-notch athletic skills, her mile-long legs, and her girl-next-door freckles. But when he learns the Falcons are booting the Surge from their coveted practice space to the notoriously cursed Cricket Field, those warm feelings give way to crippling superstition. With his contract up for renewal and his thirty-fourth birthday just weeks away, Gabe will risk anything to protect his position with the Surge.

The rivals agree to settle their differences in a Battle of the Sexes competition—a test of skills, fitness, and willpower. At first the situation seems win-win: Gabe gets the chance to earn back the Surge’s practice space, and Lainey’s team will finally get some much-deserved media attention. But as the friction between them becomes hot enough to spark and smolder, Lainey and Gabe are entering new territory—and with both of their careers on the line, love might just be the toughest opponent of all.
