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.
MY REVIEW (Brandi)
I'm a sucker for the sports romance and Jen Frederick has managed to deliver every single time. First with Knox and Ellie and now with Luce and Matty.
Lucy isn't the most outgoing person. She likes to stay home, work at the coffee shop, and participate in mock trial.
Matty Iverson plays football, parties, and hooks up with random chicks because he can. I mean, if random chicks were throwing themselves at me, I'd take them up on the offer too.
Anyway, one random night, Matty finds himself in a coffee shop entranced by the blonde chick sitting hear him. How many times can one person sigh like that? Matty being the man he is engages her in conversation and attempts to ask her out. Attempts is the key word. Lucy turns him down. She isn't sure why this hottie is talking to her, but she knows he is a risk that isn't going to be worth the reward. Guys who look like Matthew aren't in it for the long haul.
So begins the exchange. The fun back-and-forth, the sexual tension, the forbidden romance. It's all here. It's so good that I finished this book in one day. I couldn't put it down. I had to know how Matty would win over his woman. He had several obstacles in his way: she didn't want to go out with him, she promised Ace (her best childhood friend and QB for the Warriors) that she wouldn't date any of his teammates, and he's Matty Iverson so he's known for his womanizing ways. Add these issues to the fact that Matty has to convince Ace to step away from the QB position and you can see that this is going to be a shit-show.
