I thought I would like this book since I tend to have fond feelings towards sports-romances. Unfortunately, this book left a lot to be desired for me. Here are some of my issues:

- Characters that were way *too* perfect. I prefer flawed characters.
- Little drama, and the drama that did occur was cleared up in a matter of a few pararaphs
- Repetition of names throughout dialogue in an unnatural way
- Sex scenes that I found to be unmotivating to the story. Honestly, I got bored by them. And, there was a lot of them. I will read erotica, so it's not something that normally bothers me, but I just found it to be tedious reading in this novel.

On a positive note, I did like the cover. I didn't hate the book, but I was hoping for so much more. It's my first book by the author, so maybe I just went into it with unrealistic expectations.

FlibBityFLooB I was disappointed, Sabrina. I guess I was hoping for a lot more. I tend to be the odd one out in the reviews by my friend's who have read it, though, so you may side with them :)
