Pass Interference by Cami Checketts {Review}

Pass Interference (Book Six Last Play Series) by guest author Cami Checketts
Kindle Edition
Published November 17th 2016 by Birch River Publishing


Hyde Metcalf, wide receiver for the Denver Storm, is recovering from pneumonia and needs the best personal trainer in Colorado to get him in shape for the season. With his dad missing again and his mom fighting Alzheimer’s, it's crucial he stays close to home.
Lily Udy idolizes Hyde Metcalf and the Denver Storm. Her dream is to be a team trainer someday. When Hyde walks into the gym she’s working at and her boss gives her the opportunity to train him, it’s more than a dream come true.  

Hyde thinks he may have found the perfect trainer and maybe more with Lily, until another man who wants Lily for himself, the media, his mom, and a horrible accident come between them. Happily ever after may be a pass that neither of them can jump high enough to reach.


My Review: 4 Stars

I feel like I need to hang my head in shame because I haven't read any of the other books in this series...yet. Too many books, too little time. However, this book can completely stand on its own. Confession time: I have some weird fascination with professional athletes and celebrities--I love them and their lives, especially when they're like Hyde. I also love the idea of an average girl, like Lily, finding a relationship with someone of this fame.

Hyde plays football and an illness at the end of the football season leaves him in desperate need for a trainer to whip him into shape for the upcoming season. Enter Lily. She's got grit, determination, and doesn't back down on her trainer skills for someone with national popularity. They each come from opposite sides of the tracks, but their common interests are enough to support a solid working relationship with a fragile personal side. 

I love Hyde! He's tough and fierce in his sport, but he's a big ol' softy off the field. He's generous, almost to a fault, but has a jealous streak that I couldn't help but adore. Lily is motivated and aggressively loyal, especially when her large family is involved. She's got priorities and nothing messes with her--except her small streak of insecurity. The explosive combination of their personalities ignites a genuine and turbulent chemistry that ensnared my heart. I definitely need to go back and read the other books in this series, so that I can get the full scoop on those whom I only caught glimpses of in this story.
