Juked by M.E. Carter

JukedJuked: verb.
A slang soccer term meaning: faked out, deceived, confused your opponent
See examples Daniel Zavaro and Quincy Watson:

As the rising star in Houston, Daniel has found fame as Captain of his Pro soccer team and the city’s most eligible bachelor. Daniel has everything – except someone special – and that suits him just fine. He doesn’t want, or need, complications.

Quincy has baggage, and lots of it. After a tragic accident spins her world on its axis, she finds herself as a single mother, raising a newborn nephew she never knew she had. Between parenthood, her full-time job, and dealing with the suffocating grief of losing her sister, every day is a struggle.

When they begin to cross paths unexpectedly and often, an unlikely friendship starts to evolve. Feelings change. Lines get crossed. What happens next surprises them both…

Before they know it– they’ve been Juked.

3 stars

Very fast, light read. Quincy finds out her baby sister has died, leaving behind an infant, baby Chance. Daniel is the Captain of a professional soccer team. They meet at Walmart when Quincy is desperately trying to find the right formula and he steps in to help her. Being an uncle to lots of kids has its benefits. When they meet again, weeks later, he asks her out.

Charming story, not too big on drama. Who would not love a guy who enjoys taking care of a baby? He is also so sweet when Quincy is sick with the flu.
