What he wants he gets...

Knox Masters is a quarterback's worst nightmare. Warrior. Champion. And...virgin. Knox knows what he wants--and he gets it. All American Football player? Check. NFL pros scouting him? Check. Now, he's set his sight on two things. The national title. And Ellie Campbell. Sure, she's the sister of his fellow teammate, but that's not going to stop him. Especially not when he’s convinced Ellie is the one.

...but he's never met her before.

But Ellie isn't as sure. She's trying to start a new life and she's not interested in a relationship...with anyone. Beside it's not just her cardinal rule of never dating her brother's teammates that keeps her away, but Ellie has a dark secret that would jeopardize everything Knox is pursuing.

Knox has no intention of losing. Ellie has no intention of giving in.

Maria’s Review

➦This is a stand alone new adult sports romance novel, first in the Gridiron series. Where does that term come from anyways?

“Gridiron” is a reference to the design and shape of the lines on the field of play, which resemble that of a gridiron – a grid-shaped metal grate used for cooking (like those found on a grill).

Well, cuz… FOOTBALL.

➦So… A VIRGIN star college football player for a hero? Um, yes please! If you think you’d find this to be an aphrodisiac… then by all means… have a read, would ya?

➦I should perhaps mention that Knox has an identical twin and has a bit of a complex when it comes to girls not being able to tell them apart.

❤The first half of the book was HOT! I loved the anticipation and a little back and forth the MCs had going. Ellie, the heroine, was against dating a football player so Knox had some convincing to do.

➦The hero experiences a case of insta-love and repeatedly declares Ellie to be “the one.” I’ts cute, really. I could have totally overlooked everything if it wasn’t for a totally predictable and cheesy ending >.< But oh well, liked it non the less!

➦Recommended for those who enjoy sports romances, college scene, a bit of drama and cheesy sprinkles on top.

Oh! One last thing I have to include! Our hero goes to work out and sees his buddy doing deadlifts. He then decides to spot him.

I mean, I had a fit imagining two football players doing this. I don’t know of any other way to spot a deadlift, do you? 🙂
