Juked: 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.


Juked was a sweet, fun read that cleared my reading palate. Enough laughs and a dash of drama allowed for a quick read that had feeling.

The unthinkable happened and sent Quincy’s life into a tailspin.  Now caring for the nephew she never knew, Quincy must make some major life changes.  Daniel landed right in the middle of her tailspin, showing that he was more than just a player on and off the field.

This is my second read by Carter and I feel her writing and story development continues to grow.  Juked was a solid story with feeling and emotions.  I became invested in these characters and didn’t want to put the book down until I knew they were ok… Or as ok as they could be.  This is one to add to the TBR.


About M.E. Carter

My name is ME Carter and I have no idea how I ended writing books. I’m more of a story teller (the more exaggerated the better) and I happen to know people who helped me get those stories on paper.
I love reading (read almost 300 books last year), hate working out (but I do it anyway because my trainer makes me), love food (but hate what it does to my butt) and love traveling to non-touristy places most people never see.
I live in Houston with my four kids, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who was just a twinkle in my eye when I came up with my pen name. Yeah, I’ll probably have to pay for his therapy someday for being left out.
