Top of Her Game by M. Ullrich

For more than just the love of the game.

What was the book about?:
Kenzie Shaw joins the New Jersey Hurricanes Women’s Soccer team after being drafted from Penn State. The Hurricanes also have her idol and crush, Sutton Flores playing for them. 

The attraction to each other is sizzling and before either of them know it, the chemistry becomes infinitely more and they can’t get enough of each other. But when a sexual harrasment suit and national soccer team rules throw them curve balls, can they hold true to each other?

Featured Tropes
Sport, Friends to Lovers, Age-Gap

Book Strengths
This book made Les Rêveur top books of 2019.
I was astounded by how much I adored it but then again, M. Ullrich never disappointments me. She is kicking goals (see what I did there) every time she sits down to write. I was glued from the word ‘go’ and honestly, her little twists and turns in the story just kept leaving me stunned!

These women are both powerhouses on and off the field. When it comes to the soccer, M. Ullrich gave a solid account of the game and the players. I can honestly say this book would suit any reader even if you’re not a fan of soccer. The romance and storyline take centre stage but the soccer just adds a nice little extra for us soccer fans out there.
I cried. I cried a lot in this book. It also made me nervous, made my stomach flip in good ways and in bad. And the Epilogue… Sigh. It was nothing short of perfection.

Character Chemistry
I have read some hot sex scenes and some of the best ones have come from M. Ullrich. As she grows as an author she seems to hone the craft of writing them and adds little extras that suit only the characters in the story. You’ll see what I mean when you read it but this book’s hottest scene was not what I was expecting. So very sexy!

The chemistry between Sutton and Kenzie is off the hook. I got shivers a few times when they would look at one another or when they’d touch. There was also a certain level of non sexual intimacy that made my heart swell and I reckon you can only have this intense connection if you have been friends before lovers. It was actually quite lovely to read.

Wrap up
I read this book twice in a row because the first time I forgot to take notes I immersed in it so much. This book has landed on my all time favourites list. Exceptional!
