DOUBLE OR NOTHING Release

Being a soccer legacy is tough. Especially when you move to a new city and your superstar ex-soccer player father is the main coach of your high school team.
Expectations are high about going pro while all you want to do is blend into the background of faceless students.
But last year I made a mistake trying to kick the assistant coach off the team.
This year Gabriel Hayes is back as the main coach armed with insults, sarcasm and the will to make me pay.
He makes me question my talent for soccer and pushes me to my breaking point both on and off the field.

Natalie Hitchings was the coach’s daughter. I suffered through a semester of her smart mouth correcting everyone and her soccer knowledge being top notch.
This year, with her father letting me take the lead, I’m determined to break her.
𝗡𝗼 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗸𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝗳𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝗮𝗺 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀 and it will be my pleasure to teach the spoiled soccer royalty that actions have consequences.
But during our heated exchanges sparks of anger are not the only ones flying. There’s lusting and love hidden behind our cold exchanges and soon I find myself seeking her out and slowly falling for her.
For my athlete.
For the girl I was supposed to punish.
For the player who is destined to play in the big leagues.
I know I should let her go, but I’m used to getting what I want and I’m not scared of fighting for it.
