The Second Coming by Carrie Aarons – Review

Jude is a soccer superstar. He plays at the Rogue Football Academy, and when he behaves he moves up and plays for Rogue FC. The problem is, Jude gets into more trouble than he should, so the manager of Rogue FC has a hard time keeping him called up. Jude has suffered loss and the image the public sees isn’t necessarily the person that Jude truly is.

Aria is just trying to get by. She works at Rogue Football Academy in the sew shop by day, and does work around the academy by night, all while trying to take care of her father. She works hard and doesn’t have time for nonsense. Of course she knows who Jude Davies is, she’d have to be living under a rock to not know, but she also knows that he is trouble with a capital T.

One night, when the two meet, it’s clear that the attraction is pretty instant. Attraction or not the two lead vastly different lives. When Jude asks Aria to come with him to London to keep him in line, that attraction becomes almost too much to ignore. However Jude, once again causes trouble and Aria realizes she can’t afford the kind of trouble he creates. Can Jude pull himself together and be the guy that Aria needs and deserves?

When I heard that Carrie was writing another soccer story, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I absolutely loved ‘Red Card’ and just knew that ‘The Second Coming’ would be just as great. Carrie absolutely surpassed what I thought this book would be and made it even better. I appreciate her writing style, and the way that she makes you fall in love with the characters. You can’t help but root for the resident bad boy to pull himself together, or for the good girl to let her hair down and have some fun. This book was absolutely amazing, and I can’t wait until the next book!

About the Book:

They call him the second coming.
Of honor for British football.
Of God in an athlete’s body.
Of every English woman’s fantasy.

Jude Davies is my country’s prodigy on the pitch. More famous than the nobility in Buckingham Palace, he and his merry band of scoundrels rule the Rogue Football Academy and the London nightlife scene alike.

And now, he’s aiming his well-honed set of skills directly at me. His devilish charm is lethal, but with the tragic hand life has dealt me, distractions like him aren’t an option.

Plus, we’re only playing a game. One of convenience, where he needs me to save his reputation, and I need his money to save the one person I love.

Until he wraps me around that immoral finger.
Until I crave that reckless, wild high he provides.
Until I hope for a future that will never happen.

That’s the thing about going toe-to-toe with the next football legend. He’s faster, stronger, and will destroy me every time.


Author of romance novels such as Red Card and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the stories she dreams up, and the yoga pant dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and dog.
