It's a call that changes my life--and my little girl's. Years ago, playing for the NBA was the dream, but the Seattle Stallions suck. Worse than that, my old teammate is now the star center--not to mention my number one rival. There has to be a catch, some sort of agenda. Before I was injured, I was the best. Now? There's no way they want me.

But when I see the roster

To be completely honest, I wasn't sure I was going to like this story when I first started. The main characters come off as very immature in the beginning, most especially the heroine. I picked up a young new adult vibe that took a little bit to shake off, but I was glad I stuck around to see it change. The premise of the story is revenge. Both Courtney and Trae have a distinct dislike for her ex, each with their own valid reason. Courtney has to bridge the biggest gap to growth in my opinion. W ...more

Overall Opinion: This was a little bit better than "just ok" for me. I didn't necessarily go in expecting much, but I didn't get much either. It won't go down on my favorites shelf, and I don't think it will be all that memorable in the long run tbh. I think that the characters had potential to be more than they were, but sadly we just scratched the surface -- especially Trae and his daughter! I felt like there could be so much more to that whole part of the story. Oh well! It was a e

You know those books that you read that can just instantly change your mood and make you feel happy? This is one of those books! The overall vibe of the story is sweet and fun, sexy and hilarious. It feels light and carefree even though it deals with some serious stuff, and you'll be hard pressed to not fall for these characters! Usually yes, the relationship between the characters is what everyone remembers most about a book but the vibe and feel of Offensive Rebound is something else I won't f ...more

This story was about revenge. Plain and simple. Both Trae and Courtney hated her ex Brock for their own reasons. They each had their own history with him and had been burned in many ways by him. Somehow they fell into a friendship with each other that blossomed into a pseudo-relationship and grew into love.

Although a sports romance, it focuses more on the behind-the-scenes action than what actually happens on the court. I'm not sure how accurate it was but while reading it I found I couldn't car

Oh sweet baby Jesus we all need a Trae Rhodes in our lives. He is a filthy, dirty Hero with a hidden side of sweet.

Courtney Cohen has inherited the Seattle Stallions although at the moment they are acting more like ponies. Her father Charlie Cohen built it all for Courtney.

Charlie Cohen is no more but the sly dog put a plan in motion to help two people.

The Stallions are the laughing stock of the NBA and Court wants to change that and bring them right to the top if it wasn't for one slight pesky

Offensive Rebound is an entertaining read. Parts of it could actually be described as fun and the character development is exceptional. The story includes one of my favorite tropes and had some really fun scenes. However, while reading this, I decided on a lower rating. I'm really glad I waited a couple days to write a full review. Since finishing this book, I've thought about it several times. Because of it's staying power, I decided on a higher rating.

Offensive Rebound is a wonderful sports romance with two fabulous main characters. Courtney definitely took charge and wanted to do her deceased father proud by taking over his basketball team The Stallions. It took a lot knowledge and work but she was persistent and determined to make it a success.
She'd gotten her heart broken by the basketball team's star Brock but wouldn't let that define or break her down. No, she would get even or better yet, make his time there miserable.

This is the first M.J. Fields book I have read and I went in not sure of what to expect from her writing but I got caught up on that blurb. So I went in without any preconceived ideas on what I was getting and it was great. Well it was mostly great. I was a little thrown by the way the first person point of view was written for the first few chapters but then I was so caught up in the story and seeing where it was going to go that I didn’t even notice it.

Courtney Cohen has inherited a basketball team, but not just any team, she inherited The Stallions, the laughing stock of the NBA. To make things worse, her ex-fiance, Brock, is team captain and prior to his passing her father hired Brock's arch-nemesis. Desperate to prove everyone wrong, Courtney takes on The Stallions and begins turning things around, but things get confusing when Trae Rhodes shows her he's more than just Brock's enemy and her Plan

Okay, I'd say this book is a must read for all sports romance fans/readers.
Main hero is a basketball player and heroine is an heiress that recently inherited Seattle Stallions, her own basketball team.
Having that in mind, I have to emphasise the fact that I don't watch basketball and pretty much don't know anything about it. Lame, I know. NBA is just not my thing, and my own little brother would probably kill me for what I just wrote. But that

New sexy sport romance ALERT!!!! This book is addictive and will keep you hooked from beginning until the end. One hard-ass basketball player, a smart mouthed team owner, and a little girl. Their story will pull at your heart strings a little bit.

Trae retired from professional basketball so he could be close to his daughter. One phone call from the coach and his life is about to change. Trae has a beef to settle with his teammate who happened to be the new owner’s ex-fiancé. Can you smell troubl

What a book!! I'm loving MJ's new Sports Series Holding Series. We have one hot alpha basketball player, Trae Rhodes and we have Courtney Cohen the owner of Seattle Stallions. The Stallions are the laughing stock of the NBA and Courtney wants to change this and bring them right to the top. She unfortunately is faced with a long hard round ahead with no one taking her seriously except Trae.

This is one incredible novel by M.J. Fields. As always I love her style of writing. I

Every M.J.Fields book I have read has been different, some more humorous or more serious than the other. What isn't different is this authors ability to have me glued to the pages.

I loved Trae, a basketball player, he's got a rep as a player off court too but you cant always believe the tabloids. Trae is not only hot, he's one caring, sweet talking, sexy,baby daddy, he's definitely my new bbf.

Alpha hero? Check. Heroine looking to establish her independence? Check. Sexual tension that crackles? Check. A romance that will steam up your screen and make you swoon? Check. M.J. Fields delivers in every single area with Offensive Rebound.

Courtney is a heroine that is looking to reclaim her independence. She has been hurt by someone she thought she could trust, someone who was supposed to love her, and she refuses to allow him to harm

I love Trae! That's the first thing I have to say.

This was a fun read, with a depth to it that left me heartbroken.
I loved the main characters, Trae and Courtney. Christa was so damn funny. Parker intrigued me. Brock...I wish he would jump off a building. I wanted to kill Coach, and I loved Bill.

Trae ... I'm telling ya, he's a one in a million guy. He's all alpha, yet he has a softness to him that outshines his alpha tendencies. And his dirty mouth...holy crap!

Offensive Rebound is a stand alone novel by MJ Fields. I love a great sports romance and MJ killed it with this one. I guarantee if you didn't follow basketball before reading this, you will now. You need to find your own Trae Rhodes somewhere out there.

Here is what to like about this one

MJ Fields has been a go-to author of mine for years now. Not only is she an amazing person, but she is also a fantastic writer. Known for her alpha males, independent heroes, and strong storylines, she gives readers her best book... to date.

Offensive Rebound was a sexy, thrilling, intense, passionate, and all-consuming book that kept me glued to the pages cover to cover. As usual, MJ took me on an emotional roller coaster full of ups, downs, and everything in between.

I really enjoyed this book. It's not my usual go-to sub genre - I'm not particularly into sports related books - but this one is worth venturing out for.
It's a great story filled with a few laughs, lots of chemistry, a fiery, stubborn woman and an alpha-ish male. Don't get my wrong, Brock is great but he's not overly alpha. Just enough, which suits his character.
There are parts that warmed my heart and left my eyes slightly damp. It's well written and gets your heart racing on many levels.

MJF is hit or miss with me but I always give her books a shot (see what I did there lol). I really liked this book. It was a fresh take on a sports themed book. I really loved the characters, the storyline and even the secondary characters. I loved the attention to detail when it came to Callie and her needs, you can tell lots of research went in to how to make that little girl's life come in to focus. All in all, a great job.
4.5-5 stars

omg I love this book so much I have no words!!!!
Trea was an amazing character to read... I love him so much!
and Charlotte was great too; tho my favourite girl from the book was Christa, I love her!!!
The book was beautifully written and it sucked you from the start. I couldn't put the book down from the moment I start reading it. It was such a good book to read after many crappy books I've read lately!

Since I was a teenager I’ve always had a great passion for American sports: basketball, football and hockey above all, and I talk about sleepless nights to see matches live and so on, in short, I was really “crazy” for them. Now I switched to the next step: I love reading sport romance novels and as I saw “Offensive Rebound”, I thought “miiiine” instantaneous.

The first few pages had deceived me about Courtney, the female protagonist, she seemed a little bit too naive to fall for Brock and not so

It's no secret that I do love me a good sports romance. Football, hockey, rugby, baseball, doesn't much matter to me. A hot jock, some action on and off the playing field/pitch/court, and a good love story and I'm pretty darn happy!

I absolutely loved this sports romance. MJ had proven yet again how awesome of an author she is. This is her first sports romance age was written and she blew it out of the water. And the fact that this is centered around basketball just makes it that much better.

Another great book from MJ, I loved this one. Trae was great, I loved his attitude and the way he said what was on is mind. Courtney was great, as well. She may have felt like she was weak, but she was far from it. She held her ground and was able to overcome a lot. I loved the whole book and I am hoping we get another book with Christa, she was crazy and I just loved her. Trae and Courtney were the perfect match, but with him just playing for the season will they be able to make it work?
