Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.
He’s the newly drafted quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words.
Ready to score.
I’m an athletic intern, and the coach’s daughter.
Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.
The NFL is full of rules. Rules I’ve never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched—until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don’t-give-a-f*ck attitude.
After I almost injure my father’s star player, I volunteer to make sure he’s in top shape. At first, it’s hell. I don’t like his attitude, his cockiness, his easy smile. Don’t like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.
That doesn’t stop me from wanting him.
He’s meant to be a distraction—something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I’m forced to leave football behind forever.
I know what we’re doing will lead nowhere good. I know we’re crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.
None of that matters.
But maybe it should.
Rules aren’t meant to be broken.
Or are they?

“I was the devil wearing a Bear’s jersey. She just didn’t know it yet.”
“There was something about that shier that made my heart beat even faster. Something that made this all the more right–it was the fact that we both craved this, needed this, couldn’t not have it.”
“I felt him trembling. It was the same vibration I felt in my own body. It was raw, real, and undeniable. It was a feeling fueled with such intensity, neither one of us could ignore it.”
There is nothing I love more during football season, than to curl up with a good football related sports romance. And boy does this one ever take the cake. From the moment we are introduced to Gillian and Lucas, I wanted more. I needed it. Lucas was a total badass. If you looked in the dictionary for Hot Stuff, Lucas would be there. He had the looks. He had the attitude. He had the job that millions wanted. As a newly drafted NFL player, he could have the world at his feet. The only thing Lucas wanted though, was the one thing that he couldn’t have…Gillian….the coaches daughter. From the moment he laid eyes on Gillian, he couldn’t fight the pull. There was just something about her that drew him in. But, she was forbidden. Completely, 100% off limits…..Gillian had her whole future ahead of her. She loves her family. She loves football. And she loves caring for the players. Gillian is about to face her greatest test ever….Lucas. Try as she might to keep things professional, the sparks and heat are hard to deny. The more time these two spend together, the more the lines will get blurred. And you know the saying, rules were made to be broken….
Hot Stuff was such a fun read. It is smartly written and pulls you in from the very first page. Gillian and Lucas are a force to be reckoned with. From undeniable passion to banter that keeps you begging for more, I could not get enough of these two. Their story kept me on my toes and was angst filled and 100% swoon worthy. I loved the forbidden quality to the story and could not stop myself from devouring each word. Hot Stuff is one of those reads that you can easily finish in one day. The story line is a ton of fun. The characters are entertaining and real. Their emotions are raw and easy to relate to. The romance is a terrific mix of sweet, swoon-worthy, and is hotter than hot. Gillian and Lucas are the couple that you just can’t help but root for.
Hot Stuff is the perfect sports romance to spend your afternoon getting lost in.
