Romance Books to Read During the FIFA Women's World Cup

Let’s talk about anything bookish!

It’s the FIFA Women’s World Cup and in our house, we are basically glued to the TV! I tell you, it’s probably one of the sports competitions that I actually watch! And of course, I’m rooting for the underdogs!

But this is a romance blog, so what perfect time to share romance books featuring soccer? Bonus points if the heroine is a soccer player!

Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey

Scoring Wilder by R. S. Grey


This is the only soccer romance I read that features a heroine who is a soccer player! Of course, what makes it even better is that the hero is also a soccer player who is temporarily coaching the women’s soccer team! Plus, the heroine, Kinsley is also training for the US Olympics team.


The Shameless Hour by Sarina Bowen

The Shameless Hour is a little different because it doesn’t really show a lot of soccer but the hero is a soccer player in college who is younger and a virgin! The heroine in this book is the one who is experienced! But Rafe is a sweetie and I absolutely fell for him myself!


Risky Play by Rachel Van Dyken

Risky Play

This is a book that I am currently reading right now and man, the hero is an alphahole! I also like that this relationship started as a one night stand and they meet-up in the heroine’s hometown where the hero transferred to because of his history. Risky Play is full of drama and is actually hitting me in the feels!


Kickin’ It by Rachel Van Dyken

Kickin' It by Rachel Van Dyken

This is book 2 in the Red Card series and features another female soccer player! The hero is currently a sports agent but he also used to be a soccer player but had to retire due to injuries. In this book, the heroine is a hot head and needs a team after the last blowup with her last coach, the hero then coaches her and sparks fly!


Settling the Score by R.S. Grey

Settling the Score is another book that features a female soccer player! This was also set during the Olympic Summer Games in Rio! Also, the hero is a decorated Olympic swimmer!


Kulti by Mariana Zapata

Lastly, Kulti by Mariana Zapata also features another female soccer player! Also, it’s an age-gap slow-burn romance with tons of banter!

  1. Wow! I don’t think I’ve read very many sports romances, and certainly not ones centered around soccer! But I guess I have this list now to help change that!

    I don’t watch sports all that often. I probably only start caring once the Olympics come around, and then I usually focus on things like gymnastics and ice skating!

    • There are a lot of sports romance books! It’s just that there isn’t a lot of soccer romance books! Hockey and football are really popular!
