Momma Says: 4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Kick Off is a new adult romance, but parts of it feel a bit like a coming of age romance. Jay's innocence is so endearing and at times, he seems like a fish out of water. He knows what he wants, but he flounders a little on how to get it. I loved the dynamic between Jay and Seb. Jay is as reserved as Seb is outgoing, and they work so well together. Seb is an absolute hoot and I found myself chuckling several times at the things he said, but he's also more sensitive than he lets on. The whole story did hold my interest, even though we get a cliffy in the end. That left me feeling a touch melancholy, but my interest in certainly piqued about whatever's next for this series.
