For Kicks

In For Kicks by Jenna Bayley-Burke, Breeze Cohen doesn't have time for a relationship, not if she wants to accomplish her career goals. However, Logan Chandler makes her heart beat faster than she ever thought possible whenever he's near. Except with her working hard to make the Nitrous launch party a success, Breeze doesn't have time for the gorgeous man that is her complete opposite with his live-in-the-moment personality. Yet, Logan isn't about to let Breeze get away. Will Breeze realize that there's more to life than work, so she and Logan can achieve their happy ever after; or are her career goals too important for her to even consider giving Logan a chance? 

What do you get when you pit a stubborn heroine obsessed with her career and a hero determined to show her that there's more to life than work? Well, the answer is an entertaining read from start to finish due to the obstacles this couple face on their journey to happy ever after. Will the hero be able to convince the heroine that there's more to life than work? That there is more than one way to achieve one's goals for their life. The way this story started had me amused, because the opening line had me wondering what the heroine was doing, as it makes her job sound exciting and she has an enthusiasm for her career that just had me wanting to know more. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine met that had me captivated, as Breeze isn't one to make a fool of herself, and yet, she feels very foolish when it comes to first impressions with Logan.

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, especially that of the hero that makes him live in the moment because one never knows when their time is up. Moreover, I loved every interaction between the hero and heroine, as Logan is a very determined man and won't give up on showing Breeze that love and happiness is just as important as her career. I also liked how far Logan has come since his near-death accident and his drive to succeed in getting everything he ever wanted in life. While the heroine, she's stubborn, independent, driven and I liked that she didn't make things easy for Logan. Then again, with all that she's been through, it's understandable why she put so much effort into achieving what she wants for her career. How could her fellow students have been so cruel that it made her run away rather than face what happened?

Overall, Ms. Bayley-Burke has penned a really good read in this book where the chemistry between Logan and Breeze was delightful; the romance fervent and definitely shows off their chemistry nicely; and the ending had me loving how far Breeze was willing to go to show Logan she wanted a future with him. Who knew she had it in her to be so expressive by doing something that was definitely going to get the hero's attention? I would recommend For Kicks by Jenna Bayley-Burke, if you enjoy the opposites attract trope or books by authors Wynter Daniels, Daire St Denis, Sarah Balance and Hayson Manning.

Breeze Cohen knows there’s something missing from her life, but her career doesn’t leave time for anything but retail business strategy. She has to prove herself by making sure the product launch for her company’s cornerstone client, Nitrous, is a success. No way is she is she about to let live-for-the-moment Logan Chandler tarnish her professional reputation. Even if the former athlete is now Nitrous’s poster boy and makes her heart pound like she’s run a marathon.

After surviving a near-fatal accident, Logan doesn’t want to waste a minute of life. It’s meant to be lived, ravished, enjoyed—and there’s no one he’d like to ravish more than Breeze. There’s a fiery desire beneath her icy facade. He can feel it every time they touch.

Logan’s ready to take her for a run on the wild side—but he’ll have to catch her.
