Publisher's Summary

Star quarterback Marcus Kingston lives and breathes football. He's trusted his abilities and instincts to get him this far, but an injury last season nearly ended his career. When his coaches want him to wear biofeedback technology to analyze his game, Marcus thinks the idea is ridiculous. Plus, the mousy scientist behind the project knows nothing about sports, and she quickly gets under his skin. But with another QB waiting on the sidelines, Marcus can either agree to participate, or be benched - permanently.
Scientist Clare Wynifred values intellect above most things. With her brain constantly working, she has little interest in her appearance and zero interest in sports. She never imagined her wearable tech being used to improve someone's game, but its success with the team could get her a military contract. Clare may be too late to save her brother, but her technology could save the lives of countless soldiers. She just has to make it work with the stubborn quarterback, and she'll be one step closer to her goal. Marcus and Clare butt heads at first, but their mutual attraction quickly grows. And yet, with everything to lose, it's easy to ignore that together they might be able to go the distance.

Football Drama

Footballer Marcus Kingston has sustained an injury that just might end his career. His team enlist the help of Clare Wynifred, a scientist, who knows nothing about football, but knows everything there is about biotechnology and how to analyze the information to improve an athlete’s game. Marcus wants nothing to do with the technology and certainly nothing to do with the quirky scientist tasked with helping him. Marcus thinks Clare’s just using him to further her career.

It’s amazing to me that author Leslie North could pack so much story into a 3 ½ hour audiobook! There’s nothing lacking in this book. There is drama, angst, and plenty of romance. Both Marcus and Clare are characters that you can’t help but like. They both have serious issues in their past that they need to resolve and you’re rooting for them to find happiness.

Rebecca Roberts narrates, it’s the first audiobook that I’ve listened to her read and she does a good job! Her delivery is a little stiff at times, but really, it’s a minor complaint. Rebecca does excel at voicing characters and I’d like to listen to another book with her as a narrator.

Contemporary Romance WITH Sports! :)

/\

Wired is yet another in the contemporary sports/romance category that I am really excited about. I first discovered this great mix with author Jaci Burton. These are becoming more plentiful and I love it. Leslie North puts forth a plot that is easy to follow, likable characters and straight up romance and sports. It is a perfect book for a beach read or to curl up with for a few evenings.

Rebecca Roberts is a competent and enjoyable narrator. It is a smooth and strong performance. I'll look for her work (along with that of Leslie North) in the future.

4 solid stars across all three categories

Warnings: some strong language and intimate situations
