Intro: I am drafting out this review while I should be shoveling. Terribly neglectful on my part but it’s really cold out there and I am wearing comfy fuzzy slippers in the warmth of my home. I need to prepare myself emotionally before going out there.
I loved this book. I am a weakling for sports romances. Especially ones with a particularly bad boy type hero. This one was one of them.
Heroine: Nikki-I absolutely loved Nikki. She waltzed into her PR job with Jake’s team and just gave them all the good old what for. She didn’t take any crap from anyone and I love that. She was strong and capable and pretty frickin awesome.
Hero: Jake-I love bad boy sports heroes. The nice ones tend to be boring. Jake was definitely not one of the boring ones. He’s one of those sports heroes with that oily type of swagger but he also was kind and sweet as well. I love that there was some depth to him.
Chemistry: I have seen the bet plot done so many times but it never fails for me. I love it. It’s the teenager in me that loved She’s All That. The bet plot always works. It’s so angsty and perfect and it was done so well here. It didn’t exactly hurt that Jake and Nikki had this opposites attract thing going.
Conclusion: I am loving this series so far. I love it when I can fangirl a series from the beginning. That so rarely happens. I loved this book. The angsty bits were just so well done. And the bet plot. If that’s ever been done badly, I haven’t seen it yet.
