Star footballer and successful businesswoman Jessie Grainger has her life set, and doesn’t need anything getting in the way. That includes rebellious rival player Fran Docherty, a burnt-out barmaid with a past as messed up as her attitude. So when the clashing pair find themselves on the same Edinburgh women’s football team, how will they survive each other, let alone play to win?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soccer, Love, and a Whole Lot More This is my first time reading this author so I had no idea what to expect; maybe a fluffy romance happening on and off the soccer field or a sort of beach read romance. This book does have romance and soccer but there is a lot more going on far beyond the soccer field. One of the main characters, Fran, is especially intriguing, mysterious and intense; her backstory was nothing I expected it to be. With her character particularly (more than the others) there is far more than meets the eye. There are some funny moments in the book but mostly it’s drama and romance loaded with uncertainty after uncertainty for and about the characters. For fans of soccer (games are very well depicted on paper as well as team drills and practices), anyone who has ever played a team sport (the on- and off-field camaraderie is great), and those who enjoy good stories that are more than they appear to be, I’d recommend this one for sure. I want to read more by this author to see what other stories and characters she has up her sleeve. This one was a true pleasure to sink into for the hours it took me to read.
