The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love.
Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?
Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…
Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she's shut him down. Completely.
That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It's a good thing Drew knows all about winning.
All’s fair in love and football…Game on.
I had this one on my kindle for awhile and finally decided to give it a go as I was feeling a New Adult kick starting. It was a rough start to me, to be honest. In fact I read the first 20 pages or so a few months previous and wasn’t feeling it at all so I put it aside. I finally decided to give it a second chance and I am glad I did because it did get much better.
The first 35-40 pages of this book were a huge miss for me. I did not like how the introduction to the characters and how they’re introduction to each other was written. The insta-love was a turn-off and both characters came off cheesy and annoying. Eventually the writing and character development improved for me and the ‘hook-up’ scenes were definitely hot. I wasn’t blown away by the story, though I do like the trope, but have read other examples I enjoyed more. Overall it was a good read.
