Blurb:

Billy Jeffers, pianist, never dreamed of being in a rock band, yet he reluctantly agreed to help a friend start one: Steel Total Destruction. Then, at a Miami club one night, the front man was injured and unable to play lead guitar. Therefore, Billy quickly learned and was then thrust into a spotlight he never wanted.

Madison, lead singer Memphis Black’s sassy twenty-year-old sister, left college to work for Forever Four. She has felt an intense attraction toward Billy from the first time she laid eyes on him. She even makes it apparent, but he brushes off every attempt she makes.

When his world starts crumbling apart, the band’s nice guy becomes deliciously bad. Will he use Madison’s attraction toward him to seduce her into keeping her mouth shut? Or will she reveal the secret that could crush the bond Billy has with Steel Total Destruction and Forever Four?

Hearts will be broken, hate f*cks will be had, friendships will be tested, and all hell will break loose.

Are you ready to rock?

REVIEW

Billy Jeffers is the best Rocker of Steel YET! Demanding, intense and undeniably attractive, Billy will soar to the top of your book boyfriends list. Billy keeps trying to shut out the teases that Madison keeps sending his way – she is his best friend’s sister after all – but there’s only so much a man can take. When he finally gives in it’s explosive & hot – ripping away any control he had of staying away.

There’s so much more to this story than the amazing hate f@#cking going on – Billy’s father has thrown him into a precarious position that he needs to get out of. Suddenly, Madison is his ally – the girl he could barely stand a few days ago is holding his secrets with care. All of his secrets *winks*

I completely fell for this book. It’s funny, sexy and an easy read. Billy knows how to use his fingers…and his tongue…mmmhmmmm. Fields catches you in her net and holds you tight to the story. This rocker will strum his way into your heart with only a few strokes. Thankfully he takes longer when he’s stroking other things…;)

You need Billy Jeffers in your life. LONG LIVE THE ROCKERS OF STEEL! 5 stars!

Review: Jackson’s Trust by Violet Duke

25738929

Author: Violet Duke

Book: Jackson’s Trust

tl;dr recommendation: There are no penalties in this sweet love story

Book Summary:

New York Times bestselling author Violet Duke kicks off her fun and sexy new Fourth Down series with a heartwarming friends-to-lovers romance between a no-strings-attached sports analyst and the hottest damn tomboy he’s ever met.

It’s no secret that sports analyst Jackson Gray doesn’t do relationships. What is a secret, however, is the reason why. Jackson’s life is . . . complicated. And it doesn’t help that his current hands-off “friendship” is with the cute-as-hell new sideline reporter he’s assigned to train. Turns out, not only is the woman damn sweet, she also knows as much about football as he does. Like it or not though, Jackson has to remind himself that sex is the only thing he has to offer . . . until now.

Leila Hart’s fast-growing friendship with Jackson is something she’d never risk, no matter how unbelievably seductive the reward. Becoming an NFL sportscaster has always been the goal, and thanks to Jackson’s fierce support and mentoring, it all finally seems within reach. Problem is, a girl can only take so much of that sexy-as-sin voice whispering dirty, filthy football stats in her ear before she loses all self-control. A workplace romance with Jackson is a disaster waiting to happen, especially for someone with big dreams . . . and secrets of her own.

Longer Review:

If you’re looking for a sweet sports romance with wit, humor and plenty of heat, then you NEED to run to pick up this book! Jackson’s attraction to Leila is instantaneous and all consuming – which is shocking since he’s never wanted more with anyone else. He’s not even truly sure that he can give her more…his life is complicated.

Leila is full of spitfire, one-liners and intelligence. She’s smart as hell and I loved her for it. She makes Jackson work for what he wants, even though he’s not quite sure what his end goal is. He just knows that she feels so good in his arms, and that her kisses light him up inside.

Duke is masterful at creating passion with grace and sweetness with humor. This story is full of fantastic characters you actually want to cheer on, root for and hope they score. There’s also a TON of dirty talk. While both aren’t sure that they can…or should…get involved with the other, they just can’t help it. It’s like fates colliding and the world halting to make sure that they know that they’re supposed to be with the other.

There are no penalties in this sweet love story – Violet throws a glorious pass with Jackson’s Trust! 4.5 stars!

REVIEW:

Gripping. Heartwrenching. Emotional. The fear and the sadness, the hope and the longing, these emotions take hold of you while you get inside Keller and Britt’s minds. They each come from the same, yet completely different place. This book is beautifully tragic because it takes one life changing event and shows us what happens after.

It’s not just the day and the weeks after that are affected by such a terrible crime. A horrific incident. It’s entire lives that are destroyed. Entire lives that will forever have an imprint due to evil.

Keller thinks he’s a killer – and maybe he is. If he wasn’t so selfish and he wasn’t so much of a fucking teenager maybe his life wouldn’t have been so affected. Whereas Britt did literally nothing wrong to deserve the pain and lifelong penalty for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The greatest thing about this book though is that it’s really about healing – it grips you and commands your attention. The writing felt a lot like Katy Evans, in a great way. Perhaps that’s because it’s about a fighter, but I really felt that it was more than that. Heather lets you peek into the minds of these characters and feel what they’re feeling – every raw, gritty and sickening piece of it.

I flew through this book and gasped a sigh when it was over. Their hearts are the strongest parts of them and the hardest part to heal. Nothing is sugarcoated and everything is flayed open, letting you see the guilt, misery, despair….and love that swirls between the characters. Heather killed it. 5 stars.

Excerpt:  Britt freaks out

Britt and Gabriel are waiting for me in his office so we can start our meeting. After my interaction with Wolfe, I’m seething and frustrated. All I want to do is jump into the cage and beat the fuck out of something, release this shit building up inside. Confusing new emotions like jealousy are dueling with my usual focused, raw fury.

The dark, hollow place in my chest isn’t equipped for this. I fight, I fuck, I exist. Nothing more, nothing less.

Furious, I walk over to Gabriel’s office and shove open the door. It bangs against the wall with a loud crack, causing Gabriel to frown and Britt to cry out. Just like that, she drops to the floor, curling into a ball and covering her head with her hands.

Gabriel leaps to his feet, hurrying around his desk to crouch next to a huddling, quivering Britt. Stunned, I stand at the door frozen, unsure what is going on or what I should do.

Meu filha! Britt! What is happening?” Gabriel’s voice hitches as he tries to pull Britt out from under his desk. His head whips around to face me. “Killer! ¡Venha aqui e ayudar!” (Get over here and help..)

I cross the space in two quick steps, approaching Gabriel’s desk from the opposite side. Britt’s tiny frame is tucked into a tight ball, her knees pulled to her chest, head ducked, and arms curled protectively over her head.

Protecting her from what?

“Britt,” I say in as composed of a voice as I can manage, which at this moment, isn’t saying much. Not a lot freaks me out, but right now, watching Britt fall to pieces, has me struggling to keep calm. “Please, come out.”

Britt is quietly sobbing, her body shuddering in fear. Watching her in such obvious distress sends a stabbing pain through my chest. Not sure this is the best thing for her, but not knowing what else to do, I crawl under the desk. Being as large as I am, I can only get my head and shoulders in next to her.

Gabriel slides into nervous, staccato Portuguese. “I will leave you to take care of her. Let me know when she’s feeling better and I will return.” He stands and leaves the room, gently closing the door behind him.

He left me with her?

What the fuck am I supposed to do? At a loss, I do the only thing that comes to mind. It worked to relax her before, so why not? I gather her tiny, trembling body up in my arms, and hold her. Britt immediately unwinds her arms, clutching me tight, burying her face into my shirt, her tears dampening the fabric.

On the floor in my trainer’s office, lying half under a desk, a tiny shard of my black soul becomes human again.

Release Day Review: Us by Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen

businessman working on laptop  in black suit

Authors: Elle Kennedy and Sarine Bowen

Book: Us

tl;dr recommendation: This is a story about what happens after the happily ever after. About love, life and truth. It’s also about really fucking hot sex with two incredibly gorgeous guys. Yup, you’re in.

Book Summary:

Can your favorite hockey players finish their first season together undefeated?

Five months in, NHL forward Ryan Wesley is having a record-breaking rookie season. He’s living his dream of playing pro hockey and coming home every night to the man he loves–Jamie Canning, his longtime best friend turned boyfriend. There’s just one problem: the most important relationship of his life is one he needs to keep hidden, or else face a media storm that will eclipse his success on the ice.

Jamie loves Wes. He really, truly does. But hiding sucks. It’s not the life Jamie envisioned for himself, and the strain of keeping their secret is taking its toll. It doesn’t help that his new job isn’t going as smoothly as he’d hoped, but he knows he can power through it as long as he has Wes. At least apartment 10B is their retreat, where they can always be themselves.

Or can they? When Wes’s nosiest teammate moves in upstairs, the threads of their carefully woven lie begin to unravel. With the outside world determined to take its best shot at them, can Wes and Jamie develop major-league relationship skills on the fly?

Warning: contains sexual situations, a vibrating chair, long-distance sexytimes, and proof that hockey players look hot in any shade of green.

Longer Review:

Oh my sweet wes and jamie. I wanted to coddle them and get between them (for pure comfort purposes only of course). It’s like the world will not give them a goddamn break. While Wes is in his rookie season, he’s living with Jamie, and they’re more in love than ever, that doesn’t mean that life won’t get in the way.

Wes and Jamie aren’t out. They’re out to the people who matter to them the most but not to their teammates and not to the world. Wes is terrified that it will ruin his rookie career and Jamie is terrified that Wes will never actually want to come out to the world. Their relationship isn’t fragile but it’s certainly not as solid as they’d like.

For those who already love these two you’ll be thrilled and saddened to read everything that they go through but let it be known – I love love love these characters. I ran through the gamut of emotions while reading, hitting the highs and lows with each of them.

This is a story about what happens after the happily ever after. About love, life and truth. It’s also about really fucking hot sex with two incredibly gorgeous guys. Yup, you’re in.

5 stars!

Review: With Ties that Bind by Trisha Wolfe

28665776

Author: Trisha Wolfe

Book: With Ties that Bind

tl;dr recommendation: Trisha blows me away EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Book Summary:

This series is a spinoff of the Broken Bonds serial which must be read prior to beginning this first book. Contains spoilers to the Broken Bonds serial.

Detective Ethan Quinn has questions. The Arlington Slasher case is closed, the UNSUB no longer a threat—but Quinn can’t quiet the suspicion he harbors toward his partner and the young, attractive M.E. Not only does he loathe his uncertainty, he’s torn between doing his job and protecting his team.

But burying himself in cases no longer works. He’s restless. On edge. And tired of fighting his compulsions. Quinn has always viewed the law in black and white. Only now his world is swirling with a murky gray that threatens to devour him.

When lead medical examiner Avery Johnson careens toward a dangerous path, she pulls the unwitting detective into a dark web of deception and lust, triggered by a spree of recent killings.

Is this new player linked to the Bathory murders, or is it another copycat?

Time almost took Avery from him once before. As the clock ticks, Quinn will stop at nothing to protect her, refusing to let Avery become a victim again. Against his uncompromising logic, Quinn can’t deny his feelings. Avery forces him to acknowledge his darker desires, tempting his control—which weakens with every second he spends with the feisty M.E. as they hunt down the perpetrator threatening to tear them apart.

Longer Review:

Trisha blows me away EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Her plot twists are unlike anything I have ever read before – she has a completely crazy mind that I want to get lost in over and over. While yes, this is a second in a series, it can also be read as a standalone.

Ethan Quinn is a seriously hot detective. He knows that something deeper is going on with Avery – I mean, she was just abducted afterall. But he’s so used to seeing things in black and white, he’s starting to get concerned that he’s letting gray cloud is vision. When a potential new serial killer starts up again in Arlington, everything starts to get twisted quickly.

Avery is once again at the center of everything. She’s made some choices that thrust her right into the danger zone – exactly where she had just left. I freaking loved her though. Even though she’s been through a lot she’s strong, smart and completely awesome.

Trisha writes characters that have just enough dark to balance out the light – there’s seriously hot sex scenes, tons of secrets and the fast paced thrilling ride that you need. This cover is hot as hell and the story is well developed, smart and scorching. Get to know Trisha NOW.

Review: Curvy by Alexa Riley

29245689

Author: Alexa Riley

Book: Curvy

tl;dr recommendation: My hunger for the instalove, breeder nation was strong and only more possessiveness borderlining stalkery could quelch it.

Book Summary:

The first time Flynn Long sees her, she’s lying on a bed in lingerie. The picture is soft, just like her curves, and instantly he’s obsessed.

Cali Carr is at the end of her full-figure modeling career when she’s hired for a new campaign. But when the owner of the company steps out of the shadows and starts calling the shots, a job is the last thing it feels like.

Love at first sight isn’t supposed to be real. One touch isn’t supposed to ignite so much. A single picture isn’t supposed to drive a man insane. But luckily for us it’s happening in Curvy!

Warning: Over the top isn’t strong enough for what this short story is. It’s velvety sweetness coated in insta-love cheese, and it’s waiting for you to take a bite.

Longer Review:

I don’t know exactly what it was about this book, but the second I finished it I wanted to devour every single thing that Alexa Riley has every written. My hunger for the instalove, breeder nation was strong and only more possessiveness borderlining stalkery could quelch it.

Seriously. I’m being serious. Curvy is fantastic. It celebrates a normal woman without making her seem like she’s anything other than a normal fucking woman. I hate when BBW books that talk about the woman’s curves seventy hundred times. It’s almost like you want me to hate her because she likes to eat more than kale. But not this book.

The plot isn’t heavy on substance, but it’s undeniably fun. It hit all the right notes when it comes to fast falls and alpha men. I loved the effect that Cari had on Flynn without even trying. Literally the second he catches a glimpse of her picture he’s taken – and so is she.

Go throw on some lingerie and revel in your sexiness. This book is all about loving yourself and that huge, powerful, sexy man who will fuck your brains out if anyone else so much as glances your way. LOVED. 5 stars!

Review: Wolf Bite by Nina West

28246970

Author: Nina West

Book: Wolf Bite (Wolf Cove #2)

Wolf Bait (Wolf Cove #1)

tl;dr recommendation:  I’m all fucking in when it comes to this series. Nina writes a teasing, sexy and sultry book without being scandalous. 5 stars.

Book Summary:

Isolated in the luxurious Wolf Cove Hotel in Alaska, Abbi Mitchell is thousands of miles away from her family and friends.

In the hands of a predator. Potentially.

After discovering condemning information about the mercurial man who controls her day-to-day work life and, now, her most intimate private life as well, Abbi’s not sure she can continue on with… whatever is going on between her and Henry Wolf. Especially when he’s about to be thrown into a fiery media circus ring, and she, along with her reputation, will undoubtedly get dragged into it with him.

But breaking things off with the Big Bad Wolf now likely means losing her job and her summer of freedom, and going back to the farm and her controlling mother.

She’s not doing that.

Abbi does have something to hold over Henry’s head. If he forces her hand. If she has the guts to do what amounts to blackmail.

But will the all-powerful Henry Wolf concede, or will she finally feel his bite?

Wolf Bite is Book 2 in the Wolf Cove series and should be read after finishing Wolf Bait (Book 1).

Longer Review:

This book flat out turned me the fuck on. It’s the second in the series, so you need to read the first one, but really – it’s worth the investment. This review is going to be hard as hell to not spoilerize, but I’m going to give it my best shot.

Nina teases us with some of the hottest sex scenes I have ever read. This is a no joke, emergency vibrator situation. With the amount of sex that I read I sometimes get a little desensitized to it. It becomes clinical. It loses the shock value. NOT THIS BOOK. I was so built up and full of sexual tension that I grabbed my husband after a very specific truck scene and looked around for the nonexistent third guy that was going to live out this fantasy for me. When he never appeared I decided my husband would have to do. And he most certainly did.

But back to the book. Henry Wolf is a dick. We knew this from book 1, but we’re getting to know this even more in book 2. However, he’s a dick that’s completely infatuated with Abbi Mitchell. He’s under a teensy bit of other stress insomuch that his slimy brother is trying to squeeze the resort, Wolf Cove, from his grasp and an ex-paramour is trying to sue his ass, making false threats of forcible sexual assault. There’s a lot going on.

And Abbi is young. and inexperienced. and naive. and so so ughhhhh STUPID. She interprets events in such a way that make you want to take off your comfy slippers and throw them at her head, hoping the rubber soles knock some sense into her. BUT without her idiocy we wouldn’t get to experience one of The Hottest Threesome Scenes Ever. *picks slippers back up, pats Abbi’s head*

Nina builds the tension in this book masterfully. I actually was questioning whether I even wanted Abbi to get back together with Henry – and that’s HUGE for me. Not because I disliked him, but because goddamnit, I fucking loved everything else about this book. I should note that I usually hate it when the heroine sleeps with or messes around with anyone else even when she and the Hero aren’t together. Welp, throw that requirement out the window. I’m all fucking in when it comes to this series. Nina writes a teasing, sexy and sultry book without being scandalous.

I loved the ending, even though it anticipates a book 3. There’s no huge cliffhanger, which I thanked the Sex Gods for, because the entire book was a goddamn cliffhanger. Be prepared to be addicted. 5 Stars.

Review: Audio version of Big Rock by Lauren Blakely

28688681

Author: Lauren Blakely

Book: Big Rock (audio version)
read my full review of the book here!

Book Summary:

It’s not just the motion of the ocean, ladies. It’s definitely the SIZE of the boat too.

And I’ve got both firing on all cylinders. In fact, I have ALL the right assets. Looks, brains, my own money, and a big c*&k.

You might think I’m an a*&hole. I sound like one, don’t I? I’m hot as sin, rich as heaven, smart as hell and hung like a horse.

Guess what? You haven’t heard my story before. Sure, I might be a playboy, like the NY gossip rags call me. But I’m the playboy who’s actually a great guy. Which makes me one of a kind.

The only trouble is, my dad needs me to cool it for a bit. With conservative investors in town wanting to buy his flagship Fifth Avenue jewelry store, he needs me not only to zip it up, but to look the part of the committed guy. Fine. I can do this for Dad. After all, I’ve got him to thank for the family jewels. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancée for the next week. Charlotte’s up for it. She has her own reasons for saying yes to wearing this big rock.

And pretty soon all this playing pretend in public leads to no pretending whatsoever in the bedroom, because she just can’t fake the kind of toe-curling, window-shattering orgasmic cries she makes as I take her to new heights between the sheets.

But I can’t seem to fake that I might be feeling something real for her.

What the fuck have I gotten myself into with this…big rock?

BIG ROCK is a standalone, dirty romance novel written from the guy’s POV by NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely

Longer Review:

I am an audio book convert. Sebastian York is really to blame. His voice is like a soothingly sexy wave that crashed over you and turns you on at the same time. People have stalked and have been unable to find him in an online presence and frankly, I don’t give a fuck. I like the mystery. I also like that he’s reading these books to me and me alone. Oh, I’m sorry, did you think he was reading to you? no. Just me.

Big Rock performed by Sebastian York made my drive to and from work seventy thousand times better. Listening to him talk about his cock almost had me wanting to pull over and take care of a few things. Super sexy things. Right on the side of the highway. Whatever. NotSorry.

I also got a few looks while stopped at red lights with my windows down. Oh, I’m sorry, did you not want to hear about Spencer dipping his fingers into his best friend’s pussy? Don’t care. My car. My rules.

If you’re looking for an audiobook to make you melt, this one needs to top your charts. The story is pretty wonderful too, I stand behind my review (link above) in that this book is a fantastic friends to lovers story full of humor, sweetness and scorching sex. This version just upped the ante with a baritone I could feel all the way down to my….toes.

Thank you audible & Lauren for making this happen. I have determined that audible books are exactly what you need to make everyday mundane tasks suddenly sexy. I almost look forward to driving to work now. Almost. 4.5 stars!

She’s ready to try again. . . .

Sasha Blake is scarred from a BDSM session gone wrong, but she can’t deny how much a strong Master turns her on. Determined to overcome her fears and rejoin the Partners in Play community, she asks Abby and Nathaniel West to set her up with a Dom who can help her feel safe again as a sub. They know the very experienced Cole is exactly the kind of man who can push all of Sasha’s buttons—and she soon wants to go much faster than she had planned. . . .

Cole knows that Sasha is not the kind of submissive he needs. He wants someone who will serve him 24-7, not a part-time partner. Still, the further they go into their play, the more Cole begins to wish he could make Sasha his all the time. . . .

Excerpt

During a lull in the conversation, he leaned forward and lowered his voice. “There’s a play party next weekend.”

She froze and he could see her process his words and their meaning before she relaxed. “Yes.”

“Good job, Sasha. You did what I told you to do earlier, didn’t you?” She’d remembered he wouldn’t touch her without telling her where and how.

“Yes, Sir.”

He nodded. “A fast learner. I like that. I would like for you to attend the party with me.”

He paused, gauging her reaction. Her cheeks were flushed with excitement. “I would like that,” she said.

“Since the party will be held at Master Greene’s house and I don’t know if he has granite countertops, I won’t have you wear the black lingerie.”

Her voice was calm when she asked, “What will you have me wear, Sir?”

“I’ll have it sent to you this week.” Let her think about it for a while.

“I look forward to it.”

“We won’t formally participate in any scenes, but you will serve as my submissive.”

Her lips parted and she nodded. “Yes, Sir.”

“Master Greene has asked me if he can apologize for Peter’s actions.” He watched her carefully, looking for any hint of panic.

“Will Peter be there?” she asked quietly.

“No, in fact I understand that as a result of the phone call, there’s to be a meeting to determine if he should be allowed to remain in the group.”

Her eyes widened in shock. She hadn’t heard that. He was surprised Julie hadn’t told her, but then again, Daniel might not have told Julie.

She straightened her shoulders. “In that case, I’m good with Master Greene apologizing.”

“That’s what I told him, but I also said I wanted to check with you

She nodded, but then her gaze grew distant and she looked over his shoulder.

“Everything okay?” he asked. “Are you having second thoughts?”

She slowly returned her focus to him. “No, I’m just thinking about Peter. Now that I can think about him and not risk an episode, I often find myself wondering if I missed something, some sign.”

“I understand why you’d do that, but your time would be better spent asking yourself what qualities you’re looking for in a Dom.” He reached into his pocket and took a twenty dollar bill out. “Do you know how they train people to recognize counterfeit money?”

Her forehead wrinkled and she frowned in puzzlement. “Sir?”

He passed her the twenty. “They don’t give them the counterfeit bills to study. They only touch and hold the real thing. They become so accustomed to the real money that they immediately recognize the fraud.”

“I’m not sure I understand what you’re trying to say, Sir.”

“Focus on what you want from a Dom, how you want him to treat you. Think through the characteristics of a Dom you’d like to play with. That way when you meet someone and you get to know him, you’ll recognize if he’s a fraud or not.”

She nodded.

“To make sure you understand, I want you to make a list of your top ten requirements from a Dom. We’ll go over it next time we meet.”

Her gaze grew wistful again, but she smiled and replied with a soft, “Yes, Sir.”

Author: Jen Frederick

Book: Jockblocked

tl;dr recommendation: Lucy and Matty are a football couple headed straight to the hall of fame. 5 stars.

Book Summary:

She’s always played it safe…

College junior Lucy Washington abides by one rule—avoid risk at all costs. She’s cautious in every aspect of her life, from her health, to her mock trial team, to the boring guys she dates. When a brash, gorgeous jock walks into the campus coffeeshop and turns his flirt on, Lucy is stunned by the force of attraction. For the first time ever, she’s willing to step out of her comfort zone, but can she really trust the guy who’s determined to sweep her off her feet?

He’s always played around…

Entering his last year of college eligibility, linebacker Matthew “Matty” Iverson has the team captaincy in his sights. And it’s his for the taking, if he can convince his quarterback Ace Anderson to give up the starting position. Luckily, Matty already has an edge—the hottie he’s lusting over just happens to be Ace’s childhood best friend. Getting Lucy on his side and in his bed? Hell yeah. Matty is more than confident he can have both, but when he falls hard for Lucy, it’s time for a new game plan: convince the woman of his dreams that she’s not sleeping with the enemy.

Longer Review:

Lucy and Matty are a football couple headed straight to the hall of fame. Frederick writes amazingly well, as per usual, and delivers believable characters who I adored from the very beginning. Lucy is smart, witty and adverse to risk. I mean, she has her reasons and they’re good ones. If you have even a second of time, she’ll pro con pro you faster than the Executive Board on Pref Night (any sorority girls out there? COME ON.)

Lucy isn’t in a sorority though – she’s on mock trial, which I can tell you is way more fun than actually being a lawyer. (omg. I’m so jaded). But really, she’s damn good at it and actually fucking loves everything having to do with crafting arguments and avoiding risk, and I sort of loved her.

Matty is the jock of your dreams. YES, he’s a manwhore (ok, he WAS a manwhore) but he’s getting a little old for that now. He’s a fourth year junior and he’s growing a little tiresome of the football tail that throws itself at him faster than Ace’s latest hail mary pass. The second he sets his eyes on Lucy he’s a goner.

The heat and back and forth between Matty and Lucy is absolutely on point and completely fantastic. There’s banter and tenderness; sex and feelings. It’s everything you want in a college football novel. EVERYTHING.

Jockblocked doesn’t hide the love between the characters or the feelings that clearly develop. This book showcases every touch, joke and text that makes you easily fall in love. You’ll want to do your own touchdown dance after it’s over and grab your own Matty. 5 stars!
