Book & Author Details:
Courting Kate by Tori Kron
Publication date: 23rd June 2019
Genres: Sports Romance
Slapped with court ordered community service for brawling—again, Miller Cassidy, the Indianapolis Panther’s star player, is forced into laboring under stodgy non-profit supervisor, Kate Gallagher. Her saving grace—she happens to be best friends with Stella, the woman he’s been chasing for years.
Despite the masses falling for his charm, Kate doesn’t care for Miller’s notorious reputation or his flippant behavior. But wanting to impress her strict boss, she agrees to a trade that could give them both a shot at success.
Propelled into an unlikely alliance, Miller finds himself taking a defensive stance when he sees beyond Kate’s hard exterior. And Kate is equally thrown off guard when she discovers there’s more to Miller than games.
But is love worth sacrificing friendship? And can Miller let go of the feelings for Stella he’s held onto for years?
In love and basketball, it’s five fouls and you’re out, and every play counts.
OK. I’m going to get this cleared up first – there is no cheating in this book. If that is a turn off for you (and it is for me), then you’re safe.
So, to the story. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a good story, but this exceeded expectations.
The dual POV works really well in the context of this story, particularly as the relationship unfolds. And although I didn’t warm to Miller at first, I soon warmed up to him.
And as for Kate? well, she has issues. But her growth as a character makes for pleasant reading.
In short, well worth a look.
