Synopsis from Goodreads

Wildcat: a football formation in which the ball is snapped, not to the quarterback, but to another player lined up in the quarterback position.

Wild, Cat: a beautiful woman from the sky, who hooked me against the rails, and has me on the ropes. Sweet like honey, with a hint of sass burning behind her pretty brown eyes, she took over my heart without warning.

I’m Quinn Bailey, quarterback for the New York Mavericks. Sports analysts predicted I’d break records and take my team all the way.

But no one predicted this.

And just like the other team, I never saw it coming.

Disclaimer: Things this book is: • Romantic Comedy • #1 in the Mavericks Tackle Love Series • Can be read as a complete standalone. Things it isn’t: • Paranormal: The only thing magical is inside Quinn Bailey’s pants. • Boring: Pssh, please. Max Monroe doesn’t do boring. • Short: Prior to reading, prepare yourself for one huge, long, thick…book.

On the whole, Wildcat is utterly adorable however, there is a serious undertone that is unfortunately still an issue in modern society.

Quinn is a fantastic character, it would be easy for him to be egotistical and conceited with his looks and talent but he is one of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet. He is honorable and sticks to his personal moral code which in itself is surprising due to his family background. It isn’t until Quinn becomes involved with Cat that he is confronted with the depth of his parent’s prejudice.

Cat is an air hostess who first meets Quinn while he is on a flight home to visit his family. there are definite sparks between them from the beginning but Cat tries to ignore them. However, fate has other ideas when they get diverted due to a storm and end up on a train together. Things are so comfortable between Quinn and Cat it is as if they have known each other for a long time instead of a few short hours. Determined not to let the opportunity pass him by Quinn sets out to woo Cat, and he really brings his A game 😉

Despite both their hectic schedules, Quinn and Cat make time for each other and are totally adorable. Feelings escalate quickly but organically, the only downside is the negativity displayed by Quinn’s parents and its effect on Cat’s self-esteem. This is exasperated by the media attention and social media trolls.

Ultimately, Quinn and Cat have to fight for their happiness and prove to each other that they are worth the struggle and that they can overcome any obstacle together.
