Review: For the Win by Sara Rider

For the Win (The Perfect Play, #1)
What happens when you fall for your biggest competition? Sara Rider scores with this charming romance about soccer stars battling their tough opponents and playing the field of love.

Lainey Lukas has sacrificed everything—sleep, family, carbs, a life—to earn her spot as the top player and captain of the Seattle Falcons women’s soccer team. She’s determined to lead her team to a national championship and finally earn the sport the respect it deserves—and nothing will throw her off her game. When Lainey’s hero Gabe Havelak, star of the Seattle Surge, crashes her team’s first press conference—making the Falcons look like a joke to the local media and humiliating Lainey in the process—she’s hell-bent on revenge.

Charming, confident Gabe is practically a god to Seattle soccer fans, but he doesn’t mind a little friendly competition from tough-as-nails Lainey, with her top-notch athletic skills, her mile-long legs, and her girl-next-door freckles. But when he learns the Falcons are booting the Surge from their coveted practice space to the notoriously cursed Cricket Field, those warm feelings give way to crippling superstition. With his contract up for renewal and his thirty-fourth birthday just weeks away, Gabe will risk anything to protect his position with the Surge.

The rivals agree to settle their differences in a Battle of the Sexes competition—a test of skills, fitness, and willpower. At first the situation seems win-win: Gabe gets the chance to earn back the Surge’s practice space, and Lainey’s team will finally get some much-deserved media attention. But as the friction between them becomes hot enough to spark and smolder, Lainey and Gabe are entering new territory—and with both of their careers on the line, love might just be the toughest opponent of all.

Oh, who doesn't love sport romance at all? Well, I definitely love to read sport romance because it has so much intensity between characters that it makes the read so much interesting. Sara Rider has written a sport romance series, The Perfect Play series, that will introduce new character in the sport industry specifically soccer athletic. In the first book in the Perfect Play series, reader will get to read about Gabe and Lainey in the soccer world in For the Win.
Lainey is the team captain for the women soccer team that she is determined to put her team on the top in the sport industry. But she is having trouble promoting her team in the spotlight because she does not know how to act with the public eye and especially Gabe influences. Lainey definitely do not like Gabe at all because he is a terrible influence and he is too cocky for his own self that it only infuriates her more. But Lainey is attractive to him but she is trying to ignore it since she is vulnerable but hides it well from others.
Gabe is sexy yet cocky soccer player but he gets more and more intrigued with Lainey. He has always gets want he wants and when he wants but Lainey will not give him the time or day that she becomes more attractive to him. Gabe is struggling to get through to Lainey because she is making him work for it that I definitely applaud her for that. But Gabe is determined to find more and more about Lainey so he can get through to him which I enjoy too. 
Gabe and Lainey are total opposite from each other that it makes no sense for them to be together but they are fire and out together. Their relationship is definitely explosive that I root for them to make it together! For the Win is another fantastic sport romance that it makes the read so much heartwarming! Five Stars.
