    4.5 stars After seeing a friend's review on here, I knew I needed to read this book. The cover is stunning and the blurb helped sealed the deal. Emotional read with rivals turned lovers. Filled with off the charts chemistry and angst that will have on edge. I really enjoyed this one! Blake is sassy, but broken. She doesn't let just anyone see her shattered pieces and her trust is something that is earned. Not freely given. Her pink haired friend Frankie is her rock and I adored her. Everyone needs 4.5 stars After seeing a friend's review on here, I knew I needed to read this book. The cover is stunning and the blurb helped sealed the deal. Emotional read with rivals turned lovers. Filled with off the charts chemistry and angst that will have on edge. I really enjoyed this one! Blake is sassy, but broken. She doesn't let just anyone see her shattered pieces and her trust is something that is earned. Not freely given. Her pink haired friend Frankie is her rock and I adored her. Everyone needs a friend like that in their corner. Hudson, Hudson, Hudson. Star QB. Everyone loves him. Guys want to be him and girls want to do him. Don't let his handsome face and sly smirks fool you. He has some demons of his own. He's closed off and only his two best friends have a hint as to what pushes him to the greatest. Football should be his life, but a blonde haired woman has his pulse racing. He hasn't felt that in, well forever so he is determined to get to know her. Blake has other plans... let the fun begin! Together, these two were the perfect storm. It wasn't rainbows and unicorns... there was heartbreak, secrets and half truths swirling around them. The chase was far from over and the game is still going on. This book broke my heart and had me rooting for these two. I wanted them happy. I wanted them to feel loved and worthy. I needed them to rise above the storm and find a love they so very much deserved. Hudson is book boyfriend material for sure! I hope we get to see side characters with their own books!! They were all a great addition to this story.

    This enemies-to-lovers romance is just what the doctor ordered! While Hudson and Blake seemingly despise each other from the start, the โ€œenemiesโ€ elements are light in this book. Both Hudson and Blake have dark pasts that they keep to themselves.

Do heed the trigger warnings before reading this bookโ€“theyโ€™re pretty well outlined in the beginning of the novel.

    Thank you to the authors for sending me this book! +check twโ€™s This was a cute fast paced, sports romance, with tropes like brotherโ€™s rival! The concept was really entertaining, but I couldnโ€™t help but feel like it was all going a little too fast. I feel like I definitely would have enjoyed it a bit more had there been more character & story development.

This is decidedly different for Kayleigh King, and I must say, I really loved this collaboration. They delivered a story with beautiful emotions, heartfelt romance, and so much juicy drama. A new adult, college sports story that feels familiar but becomes something else entirely- a fresh and original take on the trope. The characters were mesmerizing, main and secondary alike. Each has their own substance, and I really appreciated how strategically and thoughtfully King and Greer unfold the full depth of our hero and heroine. Our heroine has been through quite a bit of adversity, pain that has left her distrustful and broken. But her unexpected connection with Hudson challenges her emotional security in ways both entrancing and alarming to her. And Hudson turns out to be so much more than the quintessential arrogant athlete- heโ€™s kind of just a dreamy guy. If youโ€™re new to these authors, this is a great introduction. The narrative style felt seamless and the story has many layers and surprising components that make it quite griping and fast-paced. Looking forward to future co-writing by these brilliant authors!

    I hadn't read these authors before, but this book pleasantly surprised me! It's really steamy with all the feels, and even a bit of suspense thrown in. There's some sensitive topics that are dealt with here (attempted sexual assault, physical abuse -- all that were done by someone who is NOT the H. The hero is a truly good guy!) But these ladies handled this with so much care, that you could just tell how much these characters meant to them.

It's been a while since a college romance hit me this hard, and I'm very glad it did. This isn't your usual college romance either, even if it did start off that way. I'm definitely being vague for a reason, but I truly believe this is a book where you need to go in blind to appreciate its beauty. All I can say that these authors are on my radar now! **I received an ARC of this book and these are my honest opinions**

    I love football so college romances with football players are my jam. Blake (h) and Hudson (H) have a lot more happening to and around them then just college and sports though. I had a bit of trouble connecting with them until later in the book when they opened up more to each other, but this was a great character-driven romance with a lot of drama and steam. Told in first person, dual POV. No ow/om drama, neither were virgins but not specified how long it's been, and no protection used (birth c I love football so college romances with football players are my jam. Blake (h) and Hudson (H) have a lot more happening to and around them then just college and sports though. I had a bit of trouble connecting with them until later in the book when they opened up more to each other, but this was a great character-driven romance with a lot of drama and steam. Told in first person, dual POV. No ow/om drama, neither were virgins but not specified how long it's been, and no protection used (birth control and safety were discussed AFTER the first time). H was a player in his early college years, but hasn't been recently. There's insta-attraction happening and these two get together early on at a party for what Blake thinks will be a ONS and Hudson hopes will be more. It's a hot scene outdoors after a chase on Halloween. Then the drama starts with someone releasing a video. I both understood and was frustrated with how Blake reacts and I felt for Hudson. There are some time jumps, a week or two at a time, while the two of them are dealing with the fallout. Including one brief time jump after they give in to their attraction again (another hot scene) when I really wanted them to start working on themselves together. Personally, I enjoy books like these more when the characters are supporting and working together and while they do start later, there's a good amount of handling things on their own. But there's also more happening besides the video with each of them shouldering personal struggles. Eventually they start opening up to each other and we get more deeper togetherness and on page caring for each other. I do love the two of them together, I wish there had been more "regular moment" scenes too, outside of what they had to navigate. I was pleasantly surprised at how one hurdle was handled and appreciated how there weren't easy/pat solutions for the emotional side of things. Their exchange of "I love you" was awww-inducing. The epilogue is several years in the future and wraps up everything really well. I also loved that the story is therapy-positive! This ends with a HEA that's both sweet and sexy. Catching Lightning has a list of trigger warnings, so please mind those. On a positive note, we get some great game scenes and actual college campus times in class and at parties, which some college romances skip but I really enjoy. There are several side characters who stand out, Blake and Hudson have supportive friends, esp Blake's. I'd absolutely read books for a few of these side characters. Overall I ended up really enjoying this one!

I absolutely loved Hudson and Blake. Hudson is our star quarterback and Blake is our feisty girl who gives him the run of his lifetime. Things start happening within the first 10% (which reminded me of the video meme โ€œwhy we going so f*cking fastโ€) BUT trust the process because everything unravels so perfectly and it all starts to make sense throughout the plot! Also, THAT JEEP SCENE?!!!โ€ฆ my jaw was on the ground.

I enjoyed the story of Blake and Hudson. There was tension between them from the first page and I could buy it. Within these 300+ pages is soooo much happening.

To be honest, I couldn't tell while reading that two people were writing it. It was so smooth to read. I enjoyed the story of Blake and Hudson. There was tension between them from the first page and I could buy it. Within these 300+ pages is soooo much happening. Really we have funny college student funny-party moments, public shaming/bullying (in some kinda way), angst, spice, trauma and trauma healing and romance. The story starts with a fun hunting game on Halloween night - the football team is doing every year and Blake is participating this year to win the big prize by finding the watch every QB in the team has to protect since the first hunt. That's the moment Blake and Hudson meet for the first time alone ๐Ÿ˜. After that night, a lot of things happen and Blake and Hudson work through them - what was really nice to read. Both surprised me at how in some situations they handled everything very mature besides I thought they will. Besides the classic banter and steam and finally falling for each other, both MCs have trauma to work trough. And I love how this is giving both characters a bigger meaning just within these few pages. Rating: 5/5 โญ Spice: 2,5/5 ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ Hudson he is a playboy, but there is more to him than you realize at the beginning. By having a father who played football in the NFL - all eyes are on him. He's pushing him self to be the best man for his team. He falls for Blake first, and I love how he tries to convince her and make sure she is safe. Not only that, but he also never pushed her to upon up about her past / trauma. I'll help you. You want to keep fighting storms, baby? I'll fight them with you. We'll fight until I can kiss you in the rain and you're not afraid. Blake at first to seems like a party girl. But after a few pages you learn she made some mistakes before in her life and because of that she tries to change.

(view spoiler)[Hudson has also been dealing with his own drama outside of school and Blake makes it her mission to help him. (hide spoiler)] . They deal with their problems and fears together. My thoughts: Such a entertaining college romance. This was classed as enemies to lovers trope but I disagree, she didnโ€™t like him for a period of time but he never stopped trying to make things right. Hudson wasnโ€™t as badass as most college quarterbacks are depicted, he was sweet and caringโ€ฆI kind of wish he was more or a badass though. Blake was a good character but her reactions at the beginning and her assumptions annoyed me but it wasnโ€™t long before she came to her senses.

    I absolutely loved Hudson and Blakeโ€™s story! We all have fears to overcome and this book just shows with the right support behind you, you can overcome anything! We all need that one person to fight for us along with catching us when we run from a situation that scares us. Add Catching Lighting to your TBR now!

I got an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Itโ€™s a college sport romance/ American football, brotherโ€™s rival, boy obsessed trope, hurt/comfort, instant-lust but emotional slow burn, and it was so good! Hudson and Blake meet and share a night on Halloween. Their dynamic is immediately full of tension, chemistry and itโ€™s hot! They have this playful banter to them. Blake is such a badass. She challenges him and their hunter/prey games and she really makes him work for it and it is so fun to read. It is action packed, quick paced, youโ€™re not bored with any type of filler because something is always happening. There is a lot of spice and tension which was HOT! but I wonโ€™t tell you when, cause spoilers! But I like that itโ€™s more than just the physical. Blake and Hudson have the sweetest and emotional moments together. He is there for her when she needs it, comforting her and listening to her. He offers a support system where she knows she can trust him and lean on him and that sheโ€™s not alone and likewise and because of that check your twโ€™s on the first page because there is some trauma bonding and some off page past stuff but I loved that they were each otherโ€™s person and comfort. Heโ€™s definitely had that โ€œIโ€™ll hurt anyone for you.โ€ Type of vibe and honestly, what a king! You gotta read this! I promise whether youโ€™re a sport romance fan or not, this is a really great book and itโ€™s dual pov so you get to see both of them and their thoughts, for being their first sport romance book? I think these two authors did an amazing job. This book comes out April 20, 2022 so if it peeks your interest. Read it!

This is actually my first sports romance book, I've been meaning to read sports romance for a while now and this was just the perfect opportunity for me to do so. If you're into some spicy sports romance with some darkish themes this book is for you. Hudson has only ever chased one thing in his life, Football. Until the new girl showed up. He's found a new game to chase except the star quarterback may be used to winning, but the new girl can play games too. I loved the characters, Hudson and Blake were so cute together. The book was easy to read. However, I'd loved if we got more of Hudson's and Blake's pasts. That would've made me feel more connected to them. -โ€œLike I said, you were supposed to chase me around like the night of the hunt.โ€ย  -โ€œI donโ€™t want to chase anymore, Blake. I want to catch you, and never let you go.โ€

    Catching Lightning was a perfect storm of two perfectly broken souls finding each other and not knowing that once Blake ran from Hudson he was going to chase her until it was game over for the both of them. Blake moves to this new university after going through some tragic events in her past and is hoping to just stay under the radar. But her feisty best friend is sleeping with one of the football players and that's when Hudson sees Blake for the first time and wants / needs to hangout with her.

    Iโ€™ve been enjoying sports romances this year but this one has so much more angst in it that normal but I loved it! Blake transferred University after a scandal and accident at her old college left her losing her scholarship. Hudson is the University's star quarterback who has been attracted to Blake since she first walked into a class that she shared with him. They share a night on Halloween and after that Blake loses any trust that she had in Hudson and this becomes an Enemies to lovers book.

I love how possessive/protective Hudson is of Blake. This book covers some serious topics including: Abuse, Trauma, Harrassment, drugging and potential rape. It also shows how the justice system needs improving and how there are double standards when it comes to sleeping with someone

    I loved this book from the first chapter. Blake is feisty and takes no sh!t. Hudson makes you think heโ€™s a c0cky jock, but heโ€™s loyal, fiercely protective, and totally swoon worthy ๐Ÿ˜ Their chemistry is fire from the beginning & their sassy, witty banter makes it even hotter.
