Tabatha Kiss scored a touchdown with Whiplash. Quarterback, Junior Morgan knows his new coach has three simple rules: Hit the gym hard five times a week, don’t eat crap, and stay away from his daughter. However, he has no intension of staying away from Eliza Pierce. This contemporary sport romance is appropriate for new adults.
I loved Whiplash. The characters were likeable and believable. Junior is your typical player. That is until he meets Eliza. He is persistent and thoughtful. Eliza is the inconvenient daughter of coach Cary Pierce. She never felt loved by her parents. Sent away to boarding school but now needed to help her father’s image. The two characters are defiant and have great chemistry. I love their verbal banter. Eliza does not make Junior's life easy that is for sure. I thought it was cool that four-time pro-football champion Cary Pierce felt he was no one in college and had a coach who believed in him, so he wanted to return the favor by coaching a similar team. That being said, he was a jerk. I also liked Ty Fisher and Grant. They are good friends to Junior and Eliza and make a great couple.
I enjoyed the plot. It had some interesting conflicts and was well resolved. I love Junior and Eliza’s first date. Junior has a great family. I loved his sister. I adored the ending. This is a great read for people that enjoy sports romances. This is the first book I read by Tabatha Kiss. It will not be the last. She has a fantastic writing style.
