➦Rachel Van Dyken delivers an entertaining and sexy sports romance with hot football players and cheerleaders for characters. What I loved the most about this book was the new adult feels of it. It’s been a while since I’ve read a good new adult novel. An while this would probably classify as a contemporary read, the fact that all these characters were so young gave me new adult vibes.
➦This book is about professional football and covers a lot of interesting points, such as how gruesome the practices are and what it’s like to be part of a team. The author has a good balance of romance and football and I definitely appreciated the sports aspect of the book.
➦If you haven’t derived it from the cover yet, this book has a love triangle in it. And I have to say that normally this is not a trope that turns me off… at all. I actually like this trope. Here, however, I had a bit of a hard time with the delivery of the story.
➦I found myself a bit confused because I didn’t know which guy to root for. By the time the heroine made her “pick” I was frustrated because I knew I could have fallen in love with this hero completely if he had his own POV earlier in the book. Because of the fact that there were two guys the character development was lacking for me. I almost felt like by the end of the book I knew the guy who the heroine didn’t end up with better than the one she picked… And now I’m really itching to get my paws on his book.
➦If you like sports romances, hot football player heroes, strong heroines and love triangle tropes then do give this book a good look! I can’t wait to continue with this series and see what else Rachel Van Dyken brings to the plate!
