Tackle by Holly Hart

I received an e-ARC from RedCape Romance PR in exchange for an honest review. 

The rule journalists live by?
Never become the story.
And whatever you do, don’t sleep with him!


My life’s changing so fast I’ve got whiplash! Two weeks ago, the only reporting I did was for the website… Cute little league stuff – yeah, I was that junior.

Now I’m in Barcelona, Spain, reporting on the biggest signing in US soccer history – the tanned, ripped, and outrageously cocky superstar striker Alex Rodriquez. Suddenly my career’s not just going places, it’s flying there business class.

Fast cars, late nights and loose women? Alex is any journalist’s wet dream. He’s my one chance to show that I’m more than just a pretty face. And I’m going to snatch it with both hands, even if that means sacrificing his career to send mine to the stratosphere.

I’m supposed to be the new face of WBC Sports. But I don’t even recognize the girl staring back at me in the mirror.


I’m more than just a bad boy. It wasn’t easy growing up in inner city LA, and I didn’t just make it out, I made it to the pinnacle of my sport – playing offense for the world’s best club in Barcelona! But that Diana b@tch is painting me out to be no better than a ghetto gangbanger!

I hate her. I want her. And I’m going to take her.

It was really enjoyable in the beginning. Alex’s adventures as football star in a country where the other football is more famous were really fascinating. He is every girl’s dream man. With his killer looks and even more of a killer body and a cocky attitude. And whose reality was it?


From the start, I didn’t like her, for reasons I’m not too sure about. She seemed like the kind of girl that isn’t afraid to tell what she thinks, but at the same time, squirms under the watchful eye of the society.

And as much as wanted to love the story, it was impossible for me to picture them a 21-year-olds. Achieving something that great at such a young age is something that I haven’t witnessed in my life. And the love story between Diana and Alex had no chemistry and even though their feelings developed quite quickly, it was killed with all the sex that they could think of.

But I have to hand it to Ms. Hart, the sex scenes were absolutely, surprisingly wild and loved every bit of it!

Rating: 3/5

Recommendation: If you love books with a hunky male protagonist with some hot sex, this is definitely for you!
