Just Released: Soccer Mom Secrets

Share Article

New novel takes light-hearted peek into sexy, sassy side of competitive soccer in the OC.

Soccer Moms Secrets -- Soccer and sex. What could these two words possibly have in common, other than the same first letter? For some soccer moms they might as well be synonymous, especially in southern California, perhaps the most prolific area of the country for both excesses. It is a place where youth sports thrive and where the high level of competition is matched with plenty of drama.

Soccer Mom Secrets (published by AuthorHouse), the new novel by Rachel Gunther and Judy D. Holstein, steps out of the suburbs and into the lives of several less-than-perfect soccer moms, dishing the gossip and reveling in the glory of the club soccer scene in southern California's fashionable Orange County. Infighting and affairs, playing time concerns and discrimination and egos are all part of the Bayern Beach sidelines. As various family secrets intertwine on and off the field, take a glimpse into the shocking behind-the-scenes episodes that pervade the lives of otherwise "typical" soccer moms.

Consider this review from Lian Dolan, co-host of Satellite Sisters:
Wow! Who knew all those soccer moms were having this much fun? Soccer Mom Secrets is a sassy, sexy novel. Any mother who has ever sat on any sideline in a cheap foldup chair or dragged a cooler full of orange slices across a wet field at 6 a.m. will totally get Soccer Mom Secrets. And love it!

Meet characters like Renae, the frustrated team manager, naughty but nice Darlene and British import turned OC socialite Skye Trudeau. Some personalities clash, other click. All the while, money, prejudice, sex and power pose distractions for these bold women dedicated to their children's success. Chase the intrigue all over the OC in this series of jaw-dropping suburban exploits, which prove that not all games take place on the soccer field.

Written by two real-life soccer moms who spent many years in the youth soccer trenches and whose children now play college soccer, Soccer Mom Secrets presents a fictional, light-hearted peek into the ambitious world of club soccer. It is also a testimonial to the dedication so many young players display in their dizzying climb to success in this popular sport.

Rachel Gunther and Judy D. Holstein met 8 years ago when their sons landed on the same soccer team. Together they founded Soccer Moms USA, and they co-host an interactive internet broadcast called "Soccer Mom Talk." Soccer Mom Secrets is their first book.
