Wow.... It's 12:47am... And I just finished reading this book. I have all these things swirling around in my head right now. I'm kind of shocked on how the book ended. And the reaction of Tanner at the very end of this book.
I couldn't even fall asleep right away because I kept playing what I just read in my head!

For being this author first book... I think she did a good job. There were however a couple things that I didn't care for.

OMG!! I can’t believe this is a debut novel from Kimberly Bracco. Hours later my brain still will not shut off!!! For this being the author’s first book she did an amazing job. This story deals with somethings that I can seriously relate too. The author wrote about places that I have been to before in New York and New Jersey. I loved that I could actually place the areas. The story is very well-developed. It’s fast paced but it has everything that an avid book reader c

I really enjoyed this debut book. Ashley is a journalist who has the opportunity to interview the star quarterback for the Jets, Tanner. Prior to their meeting, Ashley already distrusts men because she caught her ex cheating on her and he said some hurtful things regarding her sexuality which has only fueled her insecurity. Without knowing Tanner firsthand, Ashley assumes he's like all the other guys out there and her assumptions cause the interview to go south quickly. Despite that, they do hav ...more

WOW... Where to begin? When we first meet Ashley, she is having the worst run of luck possible. She caught her boyfriend cheating on her (in her bed), he proceeds to blame her for it & she finds that he maxed out her credit cards without her knowledge. And things go downhill from there.

Then one day, she is informed by her boss that she has to cover an interview of a football player for one of her co-workers; the only problem? She has no clue about the sport. So she decides to google the pla

This is the debut of new author Kimberley Bracco.

Ashley is a journalist and is given the chance of a story to interview hot star quarterback Tanner. The interview ends badly but Tanner allows Ashely to redeem herself and so starts a connection that goes from strength to strength.

Ashley is insecure in her own skin due to the actions of a hook up in her youth and her cheating ex. This leads to a lot of angst that Tanner

3.5-4 stars. I won an ARC in exchange for an honest review of this book. Honestly, I really liked the story line here.

Ashley, a lifestyle columnist, who's down on her luck, get's a chance to interview Jets superstar quarterback, Tanner Garrison. It does not go well. Despite that there seems to be a connection between the two of them. Can Ashley get over her inhibitions and get out of her own head enough to let Tanner in? Can Tanner trust a woman without fearing she has an ulterior motive?

New Indie author I was fortunate to stumble upon. Saw teasers on FB for this book & they were super hot!! I had to check it out. I'm SO happy I did!!!

Be warned, this ends in a cliffhanger & you have no choice but to dive into book 2.

Sports romance with a sexy cocky quarterback (Tanner <3) and an insecure reporter (Ashley). Loved how their relationship develops. It's not Insta-love. But they get the BOOM!

Quinn, Ashley's BFF is freaking awesome! Super cool chick who's sassy and brutall

I loved this book and applaud the Author in taking a risk to join this wonderful world of books!!! I have a strong feeling that not only will this book take off but Kimberly Bracco will soon become well known.

Where to start?? Let me start by saying, I don't read books about Athletes'. Not that I have anything against them, it's not just my cup of tea. However, after winning an ARC of this book, I have just expanded my Goodreads list! Kimberly uses every descriptive word in the dictionary to suck

What I Loved:First of all I love romances, second I love romances that take place in New Jersey, third I love football, and fourth I have been a diehard Jets for more than half of my life! So this book had all the right ingredients for me to fall in love with it, which meant I had high expectations. Most of the time this is not a good thing, because when you have high expectations they often don’t get met. That definitely did NOT happen and this story met every sin

"4.5 stars"

This is Kimberly Bracco's first novel and she did a great job. Inhibitions is a story about a journalist Ashley and a famous quarterback Tanner. Ashley is journalist who is struggling financial (her ex took all her money) and emotionally (blaming her lack of sexuality for his wandering ways). Tanner is portrayed by the media as a cocky, womanizing, playboy. Ashley and Tanner's first meeting takes place when she is assigned to interview him for the pa

Ashley has a hard time completely giving herself over to someone after she walked in on her boyfriend cheating on her (in their bed). She has trust issues and is insecure about herself. Tanner is a popular football player and can count on one hand the people he trusts. He has to have his guard always up to keep the gold diggers from finding a spot in his life.

Ashley's life lately sucks. He live in boyfriend gets caught banging some bimbo, she tosses them out, but not before he berates her and blames her for being a prude and dead fish in the bed room.

Fast forward a few months and things don't get better, given a highly important interview for the paper she writes for, she alienates the guy who happens to be the starting QB of the NY Jets. Her boss is pissed, she lost her bf, her apt, what else could happen.

Inhibitions was raw, real and a book I was able to connect with on a deeper level.

I loved this book. It was a sweet love story with the whole boy meets girl scene. Neither one does one night stands but what about two nights to three? Yeah. That’s doable right?
One problem with that Ashley grew up with a mom that wasn’t supportive and her ex-boyfriend called her a prude.
And Tanner? Everyone wants something from him. Money, fame, or sex. Can he trust Ashley?
The writing is good. The descriptions are in depth and give dimension to the story. I wo

I enjoyed this book so much. I accidently found this author in one of my FB groups and thought okay I will give it a chance.

The book is amazing. I loved Ashley and Tanner together. And besides who doesn't love a quarterback football star.

Their attraction to each other was like immediate chemistry and the sex was Hot Steamy and so so good. And Tanner was definitely a Dirty Talker (for all you ladies who love that)

So I definitely recommend this book, it has everything you want in a good hot steamy

Wow, what a great debut novel! I couldn't put it down. I thought the story moved along flawlessly. The characters were well developed and the sex scenes - HOT! Loved that Tanner and Ashley were willing to work through their issues together. Apparently, though, not all were resolved. Looking forward to the next book in the series to see what happens next. It can't come out soon enough for me. Kimberly Bracco has now become one of my automatic one clicks!

This was a really great debut novel. I found it to be a fast paced storyline with great characters.

Ashley can't trust men anymore after being hurt by her ex. She goes to interview a sports star, Tanner believing he can't be trusted. There's chemistry between them so she takes a chance. This is a rollercoaster of a ride. Their journey isn't an easy one. There is some really hot, steamy and sexy scenes in this story.

Really great read but be warned theres a cliffhanger. Hope we don't have to wait

Tanner & them. Loved this book. Ashley is a woman that many women can relate to. She has a run of unlucky circumstances...and then...She meets Tanner, quarterback for the NY Jets. At the last minute, she gets called in to interview this misunderstood athlete for an article in the sports section of the paper...and the sparks fly. Can she trust a man again? Can she ask for what she wants? Can she let go? Read and find out! You won't be disappointed. I know I wasn't.

This was on that list and upon reading it again, I can't really remember why. So much instalove and if I had to read "Tanner! That mouth!" one more time... I get it, you like "dominating" in bed, dude.
