Publisher's Summary

Juked: verb.
/jook-t/
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.

Sweet story

After listening to M.E. Carter's two book series, Change of Hart, I selected Juked because Change of Hart was so incredible and I wanted to sample more from this author.

Even though this book was not at the same level as Change of Hart, it was a feel good kind of book. There was enough chemistry between Daniel and Quinncy to keep me entertained and several interesting secondary characters to add to the story. I love stories about pro-athletes that meet a regular girl, but since I'm not a big soccer fan, Daniel's character was not as alpha sexy to me as some of the other books that I've read that have simular storylines (i.e. hockey, football or baseball).

Fortunately, our exceptional narrator, Joe Arden helps bring sexiness to the character with his gruff and totally hot voice. Joe is one of my personal favorites. He also does an excellent proformance when he speaks in Spanish or uses an occational Mexican American accent. He gives a five star proformance. I was not familiar with Simone. but, she really does an outstanding job as Quincy. Overall, I would give this a 4.5 rating.

Juked

I'm ashamed to say Juked has been on my TBR forever (reads 2 yrs). I bought it and forgot about it. I saw the upgrade for audiobook and jumped at it...but it still sat there.

Now comes the part where I'm ashamed. Juked is a great story. M.E. Carter had me in tears immediately. I loved the immediate bond formed with the main character.

In such a tough situation, M.E. Carter didn't pull any punches. It was rough, it was real, and it was eye opening.

I have to say the meeting between the Daniel and Quincy was probably one of my favorite meet cutes. Juked is sweet, real, and a perfect escape.

Light but sweet .

I Like that this book's storyline is different than most books. I enjoyed seeing a woman portrayed as being strong and hurt without all the yelling and hateful talking. This is who more women in books should be like.

More of a single parent story than a sports romanc

The story was very solid, but for some reason I expected more sports in it. I loved Daniel, the big family dynamic and how mature and gallant he is. This is a male character any woman would love, and with Joe Arden voicing him, it's even better. Quincy is a solid strong willed, smart and great leading female. Her circumstances were well developed and you could empathize and root for her the whole way. A solid 1st book in the series with excellent narration!

Family man

Loved this book and love this series! Can't wait to listen to the rest. The narrators were great and did an amazing job with the main characters as well as well as the side characters. There is a lot more to this series than it being a sports romance. The author tackles some pretty serious topics that are common place in relationships and does a fantastic job writing about them. Quincy and Daniel's story is very believable and sets a good example on how to be adults and face tough situations life can throw at you.

Daniel comes from a big family and is more of a family man than even he believes he can be. However, he has reservations thanks to his dad and never keeps a girl around for more than one night. Quincy on the other hand has practically no one and her circle just got smaller and a lot more complicated. The tu need each other more than they realize but any good relationship is made stronger if the base is made off of friendship. But will these two stay in the friend zone or will they become more?

This was a great book and I really enjoyed listening to the audio. I highly recommend this book and I'll be listening to the rest next!

Very good

This book was so good! I really didn’t expect a sports type romance to have such a sweet and touching story behind it. I absolutely fell in love with the Characters and I can’t wait to listen to more from this author.

Unexpected Love

This is a sweet story about how life can change in the blink of an eye. I loved how the main character had enough self-worth to pull herself up by the bootstraps and always try to do what’s best for others.

🎧 Quincy and Daniel 🎧

Sweet and simple, single-parent, sports romance.
Love Joe Arden's Spanish talk. First time hearing Simone Lewis, who is fine but could do with some accent coaching.

Great story

This story was as much about Quincy & Chamce as Daniel & Quincy.

Good handling of sad topic, although the resolution with Eric was so-so. Also, there was fictional license taken with the custody process in Texas, but this IS fiction.

Overall a good read and will be reading the next in the series.

Heartbreakingly Beautiful

I absolutely loved this book. This was a heartbreakingly beautiful and endearing story. It hit close to home for me; I lost my sister who left two darling little girls to me. On top of that I was a single mom of two of my own. This was a wonderful, emotional journey to go on. I adored every single moment of this book.
Joe Arden and Simone Lewis were Outstanding!
