2 out of 5 stars


I really wanted to like this book.  The story of a hot football player, who is a single dad.  Um, yes please!  Here are some of the many reasons this book didn’t work and I will warn you there are SPOILERS ahead.

  • Gage hardly spends ANY time with his daughter.  When he does, he acts like it’s an inconvenience.
  • Chloe.  She’s a horrible heroine.  She’s whiny and super annoying. I didn’t like her at all.
  • The whole boob-pic on the jumbo-tron.  Chloe takes a boob pic and someone steals it off her phone and puts it on the jumbo-tron at the football stadium.  REALLY?  Where in the hell would this ever happen?  And it’s a boob pic.  How would you know whose boob it is?  This entire storyline was ludicrous and stupid.
  • The absolute lack of football.  This books is about a football player, but there is no football talked about.  Everything was in the locker room.
  • The attitude of the men Chloe worked with.  Why would someone work with a group of sexist assholes?  Chloe hated the guy she worked with and felt she was discriminated against because of her gender.  Find a job on the private side.
  • The summary from goodreads is longer than the book.  Seriously, this book ended at 37%.  Is it a novella?

Very disappointing book.  I would not recommend this.

Happy reading.
