I am a big sports fan. I am not a football fan at all but any romance about an athlete will likely appeal to me. I haven't read many but I was really excited about this one. I should probably note that I know next to nothing about football.
I really like Lavender a lot. She was extremely likable and very easy to identify with. She was also a very well-rounded character with a very interesting backstory--and some very good reasons not to date jocks. I am not usually a very big fan of football players. At all. They usually come off as spoiled and egotistical to me. But I really liked Tyler. He wasn't at all like that. He did have alpha tendencies. But I like that. Alpha tendencies are a good thing. He also had some jerk tendencies. But again, I liked that. It's probably a flaw but I don't care.
I did not read the first book in this series so I entered kind of blind but I didn't find myself lost at all. It was a very easy story to get into. Mainly because of the chemistry between Tyler and Lavender. It was perfect. They bickered and bantered and I just love that. Neither was willing to give an inch. Their conflicts also weren't just for the drama factor. There was no needless angst which I really appreciated. I also really appreciated that the story wasn't really dependent on football knowledge at all--because I have none.
I found this book to be an especially enjoyable read. It was fun and quick---like with many books, I breezed through it in an hour. I will be going back and reading the previous book in the series.
