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

Release Date: January 31, 2018
Genre: Sports Romance. Humor.
Actual Rating: 3 stars
Wildcat by Max Monroe is a good start to the Mavericks Tackle Love series. While I did enjoy the story for the most part, I felt like I have read something very similar before (hence the reason why I gave it 3 stars). For me as a reader, I crave originality in the books I read and this was missing that. It's the story of an all star quarterback who meets a woman unexpectedly and has to hurdle a few hoops to find their HEA. Sounds familiar... Now, while this book wasn't original in the plot, I did like how the authors created an interracial couple. This is something I don't see a lot in the romances I pick up and I appreciated that they deviated from the norm here. Do I think the authors could have tackled some of the issues associated with interracial dating a bit more? Yes. In this day in age people can and do date whoever they want no matter their race, religion, gender, etc. However, we also have people who still DON'T agree with dating outside of their own race, religion, etc. (like Quinn's parents). So it would have been nice to see this play out a bit more. With all that aside though (I'm not trying to pick the entire book apart) it is a good read.
Sports romance fans, and those who enjoy Max Monroe are certainly going to want to pick up Wildcat. It features an amazing hero (he was my favorite thing about the entire story because he was not only funny but wanted love), and an equally charming heroine. The cover is eye catching as well, so... You know, if you like pretty covers it wouldn't hurt to read it either. LOL.
No matter what little things that I didn't care for about this book I do still plan to read the second one. Sean (who is set to be the hero) seems like a HILARIOUS character and it will be nice to read about his journey through love.
PS: Each of these books can be read as complete standalones.
