Successful, high-profile sports agent Matt Kingston thinks he can handle anything. Then soccer player Parker Speedman shows up at his door. She is young and gorgeous, has natural talent, and is looking for a team. She’s also a hothead with a punchy past who floored her last coach on live TV. Despite his misgivings, Matt agrees to be both her agent and her coach. Professional common sense says she’s off-limits. But what can he say about the raw attraction between them?

Parker plays soccer with her heart and soul. But after the events of the last year, she’s shaken. She’s already seen what a powerful man can do to a female athlete’s career. And her beloved dream is in the hands of a sexy, gorgeous man with the uncanny ability to slip past her defenses…and into her heart.

Now Matt and Parker are about to learn that when it comes to love, the only way to win is by breaking every rule they know. And by playing nice. Real nice.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Kickin’ It is the second book in the Red Card series by the ever talented Rachel Van Dyken. Rachel is one of my favorite authors who can write anything. And I mean anything. I also read everything she writes because I know she will always give me what I need. Fun, sexiness, laughter, lust, love, friendship, a little angst and a happily ever after. We met Matt in Risky Play. He’s Slade and Jagger’s agent. He’s also broody, sexy as sin and really good at his job. When his sister, Willow, shows up on his doorstep for the summer with her gorgeous best friend, Parker things get a little tricky. Parker is a very talented soccer play who needs an agent. Matt. She’s also young, pretty and off limits. Matt finds himself offering to coach her for her tryouts and he never does that. Never. Now he has to figure out how to keep his hands off her when he’s with her twenty-four-seven. His will power just isn’t that strong. In true Slade and Jagger fashion, they tease him about Parker because they know their agent and friend. He wants her and they all know it. Parker plays the game with her heart and soul, but she has a reputation for being a hot head. Matt knows he can represent her, but when his feelings take over will he do what’s right for Parker? Will she fight for he career and her happiness? I loved this story! It’s fun, sexy and very emotional. Parker has a past she’s trying to overcome and Matt is so supportive and willing to do whatever he can to help Parker. He struggles with the line between personal and professional, but he’s going to make it all work. He has to. He can’t lose the only woman who has ever meant anything to him. Parker is talented, strong, confident and a fighter. Matt is smart, sexy, handsome and just the right amount of jerky. He’s also older, which I loved! And we can’t forget Jagger. Oh man, thank you for giving us more Jagger like we asked. I love you Rachel!


“I love Converse and Nikes. Heels are fine, but you can’t run in heels. I mean I could if a bear was chasing me or if I was chasing a taco, but I’d prefer Converse.”

“I mean heels can be useful. What if you were starving?” Matt joked. “You’d have to use your stilettos to kill you own food in the wild, versus wearing Converse and catching it.”

“Exactly. What does nobody understand this?”

“I get you.”

5 out of 5 stars

Kickin’ It is the second book in the Red Card series by the very talented, Rachel Van Dyken. It can be read as a standalone. If you read Risky Play then you have met Slade and Jaggar’s friend and agent Matt Kingston. The most sought after sports agent in the country. And he is about to get a new client, his sister’s best friend, Parker Speedman.
Parker needs an agent. The problem is that nobody will touch her after she punched her college couch on National television. That was until she met Matt Kingston. The agent of all agents and she was living under his roof for the summer thanks to his sister and her best friend, Willow. While Willow interns for Matt, Parker is in training. With Matt. The sexy asshole who could be the man to help her with her dreams of going pro. Soccer is her passion. She plays with mind, body, and soul. She just needed someone to be on her side. To believe in her. What she didn’t expect was to want him so much.
Matt knew she was off-limits. She was not only a client but his sister’s best friend. There is also the age difference. Eight years. She was a very mature twenty-two year old but he was thirty. He wanted her to have everything she worked so hard for but can he keep his hands to himself? Parker was everything he never knew he wanted. She was sassy, beautiful inside and out, and was full of passion. But, is being together worth the risk?
I loved this one! Parker is sassy AF and knows exactly how to push Matt’s buttons. She always knows how to get the stick out of his ass. She relaxes him. Intrigues him. And he wants her. Badly. And I love Matt! He can be an asshole but a good one. He is also sweet, sexy, and funny. Together, their banter is flirty, sassy, and heat.
Overall…I loved every minute of it. Once I started I didn’t want to stop and really…I didn’t. It had it all. It made me laugh, cry, and swoon. I am excited about what is up next in the series.
Make the world your oyster. And if that doesn’t work? Make it your bitch.
“His neck vein is throbbing,” Willow said in a hushed whisper as she drummed her fingernails across the granite counter. “I would tread carefully.”
“Prove it and I’ll get you everything.”
“That’s a mighty big promise, Matt Kingston.”
