There's one rule in reporting: don't ever fall in love

When Amelia Adams tells everyone my days as Chicago's quarterback are over, I vow never to give her another minute of my timeuntil the team owner sees an empty stadium, and forces us together on a reality show in hopes of filling the seats.

When Bryce Luck becomes my assignment, I swear his brown eyes and dimpled smile

I really loved the first book. It had started off weird, but I had pushed through it and really ended up liking it. So when this one started off a little dull, I thought to myself, "No worries, the first one did too..we got this!" So i pushed about 37% and then I had to stop. The characters are so BEYOND ANNOYING.

The two of them are absolutely absurd. Bryce, simply put, is a man-child. He hates a reporter because she made a comment during an on-air report that he could POSSIBLY be

I'm in love with Bryce and Amelia! Such a good book - my favorite part is that for once leading man isn't a manwhore :)

I loved that Amelia is a though girl - takes no s#$t from no one :)

I highly recommend it!

I liked this, but it wasn't fantastic either. The characters were pretty cool, but they went from not getting along, to suddenly getting along and beginning to like each other as something more very suddenly. I felt there needed to be more of a progression from that.

The relationship was pretty cruise and then when it gets to the penultimate point, it seemed a bit too easy. A bit rushed maybe. No real discussion or previous indication of things turning out the way they did.

An easy going

The title in GR states its #2 in a series but on amazon it states its a stand alone. I usually go with GR.

It started out pretty good but then it seemed like the writing just got lazy after they got physical.

They didnt seem to care about their careers at all, Bryce worked hard to get where he was and one would think with all that dedication, resisting someone he barely knew would be a cakewalk. But he caved like a wet noodle, giving into his physical wants

Tough Luck is a sexy and fun enemies to lovers romance. Amelia and Bryce are both independent and headstrong people, who each have something to prove to themselves and the public. The story is told from both of their points of views and it definitely made each of them more relatable and human. I really loved the inner monologue of each character and of course, the chemistry between Bryce and Amelia.

Bryce is both cocky and vulnerable at the same time. He has built a wall around his heart

Tough Luck by Liv Morris
Amelia Adams is a sports reporter who reported on the famous Bryce Luck. The problem, she never gave him a good report, in fact she made it seem like his career was over. Bryce has never forgiven her for it. It did make him prove to himself and his team that he was the best when he came back on a winning streak. Amelia has never understood why Bryce has always refused her interviews and has basically given her the cold shoulder. When the owner of the team decides that

Amelia is the freaking bomb.
Bryce is such a cute little heartthrob.

I had a whole review written, but goodreads decided to delete it.. and I'm meh. So.. that's that.
Loved the book, cute, fun, sexy. All the boxes ticked.

Sexy sports romance

I loved the story. I wished there were updates from the other couple but all in all it was a great story with a good love involved.

Cliche. Hot quarterback. Female sports reporter. He goes from hating her to screwing her in a blink of an eye. Story line is ok, missed opportunity on building the characters and story line though.

I liked this light enemies to lovers story. It was a quick entertaining read with no unnecessary drama. Hate between Amelia and Bryce is followed by a truce and deeper understanding of each other with hot attraction and falling in love.

Pretty good.

Very low angst. Fun, with a bit of naughty. I read some reviews that said they didn't feel the connection between the couple, but I thought they had a cute back and forth. It was resolved really quickly, but I didn't mind it.

I didn't have strong emotions for Bryce or Amelia, but I did like their dynamic in the beginning. I would have rated it higher, but I just felt like SOMETHING was missing. Don't get me wrong this was a feel good quick love story, but I kept waiting for something

I was annoyed with this book. I'm pretty sure I'm going to spoil a lot so be warned.

Let's start with the fact that Bryce has some bad games ,and Amelia- the sports announcer -makes a comment. Bryce gets mad and holds on to this grudge for over a year.

The team decided to do a reality show and have Amelia host it- I guess. Bryce is still pissed but smitten after seeing her up close for the first real time. Before the night is over the hate is pretty much gone.

The team decide to do a reality

This was a free download from another author's newsletter, and while it made a quick, nice read for the weekend, it wouldn't make me rush out to buy any more.
The characters are pretty flat and stereotypical, and the story was pretty straightforward. No major dramas involved.
They hate from a distance, they meet and still hate, but lust at the same time. They get thrown together by their respective bosses and bang, they're in love.
That's about it really.

Bryce was unlikable, the pacing was too slow, and I didn't buy into how everything was playing out. I also felt like it was an odd take on American football. I'm from Australia but the terms used and the way Bryce was portrayed didn't ring true to me. This made it difficult to stay engaged with the story and I DNF'd it.

This was vapid. There is no real character development in this beyond his supposed hatred after her assessment of his playing ability preseason. This really lacked depth.

I enjoyed Bryce and Amelia's story but the book was a bit of a slow read for me.
The concept was great and some parts were very entertaining but over all I found it a bit drawn out.

What happens when a drop your panties sexy pro NFL athlete finds himself hating a gorgeous sports newscaster? Well I am sure it's not what you think... unless you're thinking of them being stuck filming a reality TV show together.

DNF ~ there wasnt anything inherently wrong with this story. It was just sort of boring. The reasons both for the original animosity and the impetus for throwing the MCs together were really weak. The banter was kind of funny and thats probably the only reason I stuck with it as long as I did.

I received this book for free for signing up to the authors newsletter (recommended in *another* authors newsletter). After reading two chapters I decided to check to see how many books were in the series.

As far as romances go, this one was pretty decent. Hero who swears off women to concentrate on his game, until the day hes ready to meet the one; heroine who is career-focused until she meets the one. And, oh yeah, they hate each other but have to work together. The reader knows from the get-go what is going to happen, but thats okay because the journey there has some laughs and the characters are fun to get to know. The banter between Amelia and Bryce is real and give insight to their ...more

Received an ARC for an honest review.

Tough Luck is sexy, alpha read! Bryce & Amelia's story goes from hate to lust to love in about 2.5 seconds it seems. I felt some areas were too rushed, but was still a great addition to the Luck brothers series. The beginning was wonderful with the back & forth angst/hate going on. The last 10 chapters were where it got rushed. I didn't expect the insta-love that happened. All in all, it was a fun sexy story with a swoony alpha who found a sexy

I enjoyed this enemies to lovers sports romance but felt like it was a bit short. It had lots of rom-com potential as the rookie reporter is paired with an NFL quarterback for a reality show but they moved so quickly into a relationship it lost that push/pull of will they/wont they; they literally never even kissed at all before they were going at it in a hotel on the first game road trip after they met. Im definitely interested in the rest of the series though - the heros baseball playing ...more

I just Love Liv Morris Books !! Bryce Luck is just as hot as his brother but less then a player...In fact he never realized what he was looking for till Amelia Adams pissed him off and he hated her. That changed when they met and when they both stopped fighting it they were romantic, sexy,funny and hot !!! I just loved this book even better then the Brady Luck book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok read.

This was a fast read. I didnt like it as much as the first one - Hard Luck. There was very little character development for either of the characters. The book started the story and didnt tell us much about how we got there. I had also hoped to see more of an appearance of brother Brady and his lady continued in this story to fill it out a bit more. That didnt happen unfortunately. The book felt rushed and the storyline was hard to believe, especially at the end.

Sweet and romantic

This story is so sweet it just might make your teeth hurt :). The story story is simply about two people falling in love, no crazy drama, no crazy break up over a simple miscommunication. It was a really nice change of pace. Both Amelia and Bryce are instantly loveable.

Sports romance meets enemies to lovers story... you really can't ask for more in my opinion.
The chemistry between Bryce and Amelia is hot from the start and just burns hotter as they try to fight their feelings. I loved the build up in this book and the snarky banter between the main characters had me laughing out loud!
