Synopsis:

On the management fast-track, Breeze Cohen has no time for family. No interest in love. No inclination toward romance, lust, dating-or anything that doesn't include retail business strategy and cornerstone client Nitrous' most important product launch ever. No way is she going to let a live-for-the-moment, life-is-only-about-fun guy like Logan Chandler tarnish her professional reputation and derail her career.

Recovered from a near-fatal bus accident, Logan has successfully moved from professional athlete to key player for Nitrous Kicks athletic shoes. Only one woman is capable of managing his project the right way, but the proper kind of management will take time together. And that's exactly what Logan Chandler is counting on to help him get close to her heart and stay close-if he can ever catch up with her.
Breeze is focused, so focused she puts her love life and dating on permanent hold.  She wants nothing more then to work her way to the top and be the youngest manager for  Mendelssohn's department stores.  When a big launch is in jeopardy she is willing to do almost anything to make it a success.

When Breeze literally tumbled into Logan's arms and life they had no idea what would happen.  With chemistry neither of them could deny - although Breeze sure tried - will they be able to balance work and pleasure or will it be a deal breaker?

This was an interesting read.  I had to push my way through the first little bit to get into the story, but I was glad that I did.  I really enjoyed the chemistry between the characters, how opposites Logan and Breeze learn to overcome the obstacles.  I enjoyed Logan's pursuit of Breeze, how he tells her not to fight fate.

FOR KICKS was a cute quick read.  Jenna is a new author for me and one I'll definitely look for in the future.  This is one that most contemporary readers will enjoy.
