Kendall Tracy, General Manager of the San Francisco Miners, is not one for rash decisions or one-night stands. But when she finds herself alone in a hotel room with a heart-stoppingly gorgeous man-who looks oddly familiar-Kendall throws her own rules out the window…and they blow right back into her face.

Drew McCoy should look familiar, he’s a star player for her team’s archrival the Seattle Sharks. Which would basically make Drew and Kendall the Romeo and Juliet of professional football…well, without all the dying. Not that it’s an issue. They agree to pretend their encounter never happened. Nothing good can come from it anyway, right? Drew’s not so sure.

Kendall may be all wrong, but he can’t stop thinking about her and he finds that some risks are worth taking. Because the stakes are always highest when you’re playing for keeps.

My Thoughts:
Truth be told I didn't really read the blurb for Covering Kendall. All I knew was it's Drew's book, I liked the previous book, and it's about football. That's what sold me on reading Covering Kendall. Anyway, I thought the story started out cute. You probably going, "What?"

When Kendall and Drew first meet they have no clue who one another is, but they have this instant attraction. So much chemistry that they almost jump into bed with one another. Then Kendall figures out who Drew is and puts a kibosh on the whole thing. After all things could get pretty ugly since they are like mortal enemies in the football world. I guess it would be like having a Broncos fan marrying a Raiders fan, you just don't do things like that. However, fate had other plans in store for these two.

However, Drew and Kendall don't  automatically get together it actually takes sometime before they even make an attempt on the relationship. Yet, there are other things going on in the story before they make a go. For instances Kendall is picking up the pieces in the organization and trying to make sure runs well. While Drew is playing referee in his parents life. Poor guy shouldn't have to deal with his parents issues on changing dynamics, but they brought it to his door. So, they both are dealing with personal issues that keep them inline for a little while. Like Romeo and Juliet they can't seem to stay away from each other.

Truth be told I laughed and cried while reading the story. However, the tears came more cause of Drew's interaction with a kid name Nolan. The beginning had be chuckling cause you have the Capulets and the Montague's of football. Yes, Drew and Kendall have their trials to overcome in the story once they finally decide to make a go. Overall, I found Covering Kendall enjoyable. So, if you are looking for that Romeo and Juliet kind of stories that doesn't end in death, you will find it in Covering Kendall.
