➦This was a very sweet sports romance, a third in the Gridiron series and can totally be read as a standalone. It is my favorite out of the three. I really enjoyed the characters and the sports aspect was done nicely – team spirit and all that jazz. :D➦Ace is a quarterback who gets transferred to a new college team. A fresh start, right? Wrong. His past certainly follows him and he has trouble bonding with his new team because of it. His teammates don’t trust him and while Ace certainly plays an A game on the field he wishes to actually be friends with the guys.
➦Lady luck is on Ace’s side though because Bryant, the daughter of the football coach, picks him to be one of her “projects.” She reforms asshole college guys into gentlemen and then promptly dumps them onto one of her sorority sisters. Pretty healthy behavior, no? As you can tell, Bryant isn’t without issues of her own. Will Bryant be able to “fix” Ace?
➦Well, you know, I luuuurve me a pretend boyfriend/girlfriend trope. Although I suppose this wasn’t really your usual pretend girlfriend trope since only one person was pretending. Or at least she was trying really hard to. lol
➦I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did given the fact that mcs start getting jiggy with it practically on page one. But I have to say that the story from then on focused more on the emotional aspect of their relationship and I loved reading about the transformation both characters made.
➦I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves sports romances about football with reformed heroes and sweet/affectionate heroines.
