When opposites attract, is a relationship sustainable or will it be doomed because of their differences?

Elizabeth "Libby" Tucker is a small-town girl who hasn't had an easy life, but she has big dreams of graduating from Indiana University and continuing on to attend the prestigious Harvard Law School. Banford Aidan Palowski is an All-American jock from a wealthy California family, who has dreams of playing baseball in the major leagues. When Libby and Aidan meet sparks fly and interests are at a peak level, and they engage in a year and a half game of cat-n-mouse. Aidan is relentless in pursuing Libby, but she deflects his amorous attempts, even though she's denying her mutual attraction for him. Even though he considers her a "cutter" or "townie," and she considers him a superstar jock, they strike up a friendly platonic relationship. Their relationship takes a very different turn one cold night in January when he rescues her from being accosted by some drunk frat boys at a local bar, and their attraction for each other is consummated in his apartment. Knowing their relationship won't be going anywhere, Libby refuses to see Aidan, until she discovers she is pregnant. What will happen to Libby and Aidan's relationship? Will their dreams go up in smoke, or can they find a way to make everything work out the way they want it to?

Cutters vs Jocks is a fast-paced, fun and sensual novella that will make your toes curl. The storyline is well written and told in a two-person perspective by Libby and Aidan, with each perspective told in alternating chapters. The characters are realistic and believable, their engaging personalities and interactions with each other make for fun reading and laughter as you turn the pages. I absolutely loved both Libby and Aidan's characters, I think the author did a wonderful job of bringing two people from very different worlds together, and use a playful cat-n-mouse approach towards building a relationship. Cutters vs Jocks is a prequel to the continuation of Libby and Aidan's story in Binding Arbitration. This short novella will make you laugh, sigh, and hold your breath as the ending leaves the reader yearning to know what happens to Libby and Aidan. You can't help but want to find out what becomes of Libby and Aidan's story, and believe me it is well worth reading both books, you won't be left disappointed!
