This series is amazing and really easy to follow and get hooked on. In this installment in the series Intercepting Love, we get Kate and Cooper’s story. The book is written in dual POV’s which I really love. Kate is the Carolina Cougars team physician. Thanks to her brother Evan who is their wide receiver. She is happy, she loves the team and really loves her job. Cooper transferred to the Carolina Cougars as the Quarterback after suffering a shoulder injury.
The story opens up with a powerful prologue that will grip your heart and make you want to continue this story. I was completely sucked in and invested. Kate and Cooper both have a past and secrets they do not want to out in the open. Their relationships starts off slow. They become friends first and both are very attracted to one another, but are weary because of their past. When Kate first saw Cooper, she noticed how amazingly different he was and her stomach fluttered at the sight of him. Kate saw Cooper as arrogant and could not be bothered, but Cooper is very persistent and would not take no for an answer.
“I have to be careful what I do, because if I let something happen between us it could not only cause a hardship between us me and you, but also with the team. I don’t date the players, Cooper.”
“Things change, Kate. When you want something bad enough, it’s hard to just let it walk away. Over the past year, I gave up because I was too f**ked up to even try. Not anymore, though. When I want something I’m going to go for it, and when I see I see it I’m going to take it.”
“Cooper, we can’t”
“Yes we can, Kate, and I’m going to make sure we do.”
“If you want me to kiss you, I’m not going to do it until you place your soft lips on mine first. If you want me to touch you, I’m not going to unless you beg me for it. It’s all on you love.”
Kate and Cooper have a bond that is so strong, they both need each other to move forward. They are both there for each other, to offer support, love and unconditional understanding without judgment. When things go bad for one of them the other person is there to push and make sure they come out on top. Kate and Cooper are very protective of each other, and will take down anyone or anything that threatens the other. This love went both ways, and it was beautiful to read. There are some very deep topics that are touched on that I got emotional over several times.
The secondary characters in this story are amazing, loyal and funny. Kate’s brother Evan is very protective of his sister and he refuses to let anyone to hurt her ever again.
“You know you are wasting your time, right? She has strict rules about dating the guys on the team; she doesn’t do it. She’s broken many hearts by turning them down, and I know she’s not changing her ways for you. Sorry, dude, but you might want to consider another female if all you want is to score a touchdown under the sheets.”
Lara ( Kate’s best friend) is what I call a ride and die chick. She loves her friend and will push to make sure she gets what she deserves in life, and to her Cooper is the man for Kate.
“I want you to go into my house and wait. When you go inside, turn to the left and there will be a hallway. Go down to the second room on your right and wait in there. I’m going to lock the door from the outside so she can’t walk away.”
“Why are you doing this?”
“Don’t get me wrong, I like you and all, but for once I don’t want to see Luke get the girl.”
Luke well Luke has known Kate a long time and always wanted more with her. But he also knew what she went through so he was patient.
“I’m so sorry, Luke. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.”
“Are you absolutely sure this is what you want? You don’t even know this guy. You’ve known me for years.”
“It’s not always about that, sometimes things just happen.”
“I’ll be around if you ever need me.”
When they finally do get together get some dry panties because it’s smoking hot. Cooper is one dirty mouth Quarterback.
“Where to? If you don’t tell me where, I’m going to f**k you right here against the wall.”
“I want you to take me on my bed.”
“Kate, you feel so good. I can’t believe how wet you are for me. Lean back so I can taste your nipples. Seeing you in my shirt and in my bed makes me so f**king horny I can’t stand it. I know you’re mine, but all I want to do is f**k you so hard that you won’t want to think about another man. I want to see my marks on that beautiful skin of yours, I want to flip you around and grab a handful of your hair while I f**k you from behind.”(Someone get me a fan!)
Kate’s past makes an appearance and things become dangerous, but with Cooper by her side, Kate no longer hides. Although Cooper is fighting his demons, he will not let any harm come to Kate, he will protect her.
“If they so much as contact you again you need to tell me, you understand? I’m not going to let them hurt you.”
“And you think you can stop them?”
“I don’t think love, I know.”
I got so involved in Cooper and Kate’s story that I felt like I really knew them. I loved the suspense that the author added into the story. I was so nervous. The issues are really detailed, fully explained so you know what is going on throughout the story but that does not make the story less interesting. This book had second chance at love, suspense, football and really hot sex. I am also happy to see that Evan’s book is next. I cannot wait to get my hands on that one.
