Series: Denver Mountain Lions #4
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Setting: Denver, CO
Cocky football star Knox Fisher has been driving me crazy for years.
I’m one of the few female coaches in the league. I shouldn’t want someone who has the power to jeopardize my entire career, especially someone seven years my junior.
But I can’t stay away.
We keep the sizzling chemistry between the two of us.
A glance here. A touch there. I live for the stolen moments with him.
I know he wants more, but more is dangerous. If anyone saw us together, I could lose my job and be blackballed from the league.
There’s no way this relationship can end with anything but a broken heart, yet I can’t resist him.
I might be his coach, but this player is about to teach me a thing or two about love.
Illegal Contact is book 4 in Denver Mountain Lions series, but I read it as a stand alone as I hadn’t read any of the previous books. I was drawn to this because its a forbidden romance with a woman in an unconventional job: football coach. I gravitate towards books with women taking over a “mans” world.
Knox is totally smitten with Frankie and it is adorable. But, she bears all the danger-she could lose her job and be run out of football. So, most of their romance is super secret. I liked both characters and enjoyed their journey. Their chemistry is hot for sure! I thought Illegal Contact was a good read and will be a hit for readers who like forbidden romance but don’t want it to be creepy (I do NOT like student/teacher romances because that isn’t forbidden-it’s illegal). I thought the pace was a bit slow for my taste. That is really my only dislike!
