RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW: The Second Coming (Rogue Academy #1) by Carrie Aarons

Today we are celebrating the release of a sports romance, standalone title by Carrie Aarons. THE SECOND COMING is live now and available to read for FREE in KindleUnlimited. It is the first book in the Rogue Academy series! 

The Second Coming by Carrie Aarons
Available Now | Rogue Academy, #1

They call him the second coming.
Of honor for British football.
Of God in an athlete’s body.
Of every English woman’s fantasy.

Jude Davies is my country’s prodigy on the pitch. More famous than the nobility in Buckingham Palace, he and his merry band of scoundrels rule the Rogue Football Academy and the London nightlife scene alike.

And now, he’s aiming his well-honed set of skills directly at me. His devilish charm is lethal, but with the tragic hand life has dealt me, distractions like him aren’t an option.

Plus, we’re only playing a game. One of convenience, where he needs me to save his reputation, and I need his money to save the one person I love.

Until he wraps me around that immoral finger.
Until I crave that reckless, wild high he provides.
Until I hope for a future that will never happen.

That’s the thing about going toe-to-toe with the next football legend. He’s faster, stronger, and will destroy me every time.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

I'm a big fan of football (aka soccer), so I love a good story set in that world. Jude is your typical athletic superstar and has been groomed to be one since he was very young, but he has a problem staying out of trouble. Unfortunately for him, his latest stunt has put his career in jeopardy and he needs to redeem himself. 

After a very embarrassing encounter with Jude, Aria finds herself in an interesting position. He needs to be kept in line and thinks Aria is the perfect person to do it. She tries her best to resist him, but Jude is just to damn charming for his own good. 

I really enjoyed this book! It's a true NA book in the sense that both Aria and Jude are young, nineteen and twenty, respectively. Their personalities are older because their life circumstances have made them that way, but throughout the book we are constantly reminded just how young they are. 

Yes, Jude may be rich and famous, but he's still a young man who needs to realize that being a big football star isn't everything. And Aria might have a lot of responsibilities on her plate, but she's still an innocent teenager. I really liked that Carrie wrote them in that way. It made me like them even more. 

And a little bonus for those of us who have read Carrie's book Red Card. Killian and Leah show up and it's so great! It made me want to go back and reread that book again. 

I'm looking forward to the rest of this series. We meet Jude's friends and one of their stories is set up in this story and I can't wait to read it!

Author of romance novels such as Red Card and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the stories she dreams up, and the yoga pant dress code, much better.

When she isn't writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and dog.
