The H was the biggest douche !!!
The first meeting was a one night stand and even if i find it a little insulting he bailed just when he finished. I guess it's how it works for some.
But after that when he try to seduce her only because he wants to secure his place on the team i wanted to slap him so hard !!
I really saw him as only a misogyn and disrespectful guy.
It felt like she was just a ticket to use whenever he wanted something to benefit him .
Ava was "powerless" in front

Omg I was sucked in at page one and didn't stop till I was finished! I couldn't put Rush and Ava down! Once you get your hands on this book you'll be sucked in. You have your hot QB and the girl he can't get off his mind. Their story is great and you won't want it to end! Loved it!! Have to say I wouldn't be too upset if SE and Hilary gave us more of Rush and Ava!!!

Very sad to say, this book didn't work for me. I love [LOVE] S.E. Hall's writing, but seemingly only when she writes alone. I thought Ava was wishy-washy , that her and Rush's connection was too 'insta' and Rush's character does this 180 without any real explanation of why he suddenly wants a real relationship with Ava. I skimmed to finish, very predictable, lots of steamy scenes, not enough character development.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? Well, I was, but I should have known better – after all, it’s off-season for the NFL. Rush Riggins's "plays" were way OTT and far too many. The first night stand meeting between Rush and Ava turned my stomach. And any connection between them thereafter felt cold and calculated with no meaningful feeling entering the picture. From the start, I just got an icky vibe and it continued throughout. He may be the star quarterback, and believe me he won't let you forget

My biggest problem with this book is that why can't the women character be strong enough to resist this guy's characters advance?
Yes, Ava was hot for him but, because she became owner of the football team he plays on she continued to tell they couldn't be together. But, he wouldn't stop getting in her face giving her his grin and dirty talk and she couldn't resist him.
Can't we have more Heroines that are strong and can resist a guy for more than a paragraph?
I skimmed most of it. I'm glad Amazo

OMFG This book was just Amazing. Steamy as all hell, I completely devoured this book and while I should have probably gone to bed I had to stay up way past my bedtime to read this.

S.E. Hall and Hilary Storm gave me a lady boner with Rush Riggins. He oozed confidence and was relentless with Ava. At certain point I thought to myself HOLY SHIT dude you need to be slapped but as I continued to read it I found myself falling for Rush and his Alpha attitude, his brash cockiness and his vulgar yet sed

Quarterback Sack by S.E. Hall & Hillary Storm

If you're looking for steamy, look no further! Hall & Storm know how to dish it up!

Quarterback Sack is a fast paced book filled with enough steam to set your Kindle on fire, while still maintaining a storyline that will completely draw you in.

I loved Ava Vanderbilt's character. She has so much thrown at her, and handles it all with dignity and pride. Ava is one of those characters whose unselfish nature shines through, and you want so bad for

I’ve had my eye on this book for a while. From the time I first heard about the book, I knew it was right up my alley. Which, when you think about it, is weird. I mean, I’m not a football fan. So me liking football romances is just a little odd. But I digress.

I’ll admit that when I started this book, I really didn’t like Rush. I’m not even sure I have the right words to describe my feelings for him beyond saying I didn’t like him. I felt like he was going to make the book a chore to get through

Perfect if you're in the mood for a hot and steamy read!

My review may contain minor spoilers, so consider yourself warned.

So, while I did enjoy this book and for a first-time collaboration it was quite good, I can relate to some of the negative reviews. The writing was pretty fantastic and I don't think I've ever read a sports romance with a storyline like this, so that was a plus.
But... Rush, seriously? After their one night stand, he leaves right after he's done. Okay, I guess that happens, b

Hot from the very beginning!
Rush & Ava will suck you in and keep you glued to the pages until the very end.
The QB who could have virtually any woman he wants and the extremely hot woman he can't get out of his head.
When she realizes who he is she wants nothing to do with him, but Rush doesn't give up on what he wants and what he wants is Ava.
But Ava has one huge reason to steer clear of him, even if that's the last thing her body wants.
The man is sex on legs and the worst part is he knows i

An enjoyable sports romance. Rush and Ava will cause you to want to pull your hair out with some of the things they do, but that is what makes the story interesting. The book is well written. Characters are enjoyable. Plot is realistic. Dual point of view. No cliffhanger. I would highly recommend this book.

Rush Riggins, I Love You!!

Ava, Ava, Ava... You indecisive little butterfly. I get why you're reluctant; the guy has a messy sexual past. But quit using your new job as an excuse! Are you the boss, or aren't you?

Rush, you sexy gridiron alpha beast! Thank you for being strong enough to anchor Ava while she fought your connection. Thank you for breaking through the false divisions between you two, whether by action or patient inaction. And thank you for being a bossy sex god.

Lots of heartstring tug

Rush and Ava meet and share a hot unforgettable night not bothering to share their names. The next day, Ava's grandfather passes away and leaves her the NFL team he owns. Turns out Rush is the quarterback and he has no intention of letting Ava go even if she thinks they can't see each other.

I loved Rush. He's a big sweetheart of a flirt and is used to getting any woman he wants. He changes for Ava and goes out of his way to prove himself. I only liked Ava okay. There were a number of times I wa

First off I have to say I am completely jealous of the great ass on the cover. Lets just all admit that its pretty sweet. :) Okay, its time to get down to the brass tax. This was one of the best sport romances I have ever read. Not only did two of my favorite writers put this kick ass read together but they did a bad ass job with it. The characters have chemistry that is out of the park. Like flaming pages kinda hot. Rush is.... hell I cant put him into the right words. But to me hes just all th ...more

looking for that book that has steam coming from the pages from page 1 then this is the book for you.

For me the main character Ava Vanderbilt is to be looked up to. So much was pushed her way, things she didn’t even want but she rose up to the occasion, ignoring all the people who doubted her, even her own so called family, took the bull by the horns and rolled with it, she made mistakes, who doesn’t but she came out at the end of the book victorious, strong, determined and still a lovely caring

When I heard SE Hall and Hilary Storm were writing a book together, I was sure it would be great and then I heard it was a sports novel and well.. I knew it would be epic! I was absolutely right!

Rush Riggins is a sexy dirty talking quarterback that will melt the the pages right off of your kindle. Add in his determination and persistence to make our sweet Ava see that what they have is real and he is down right swoony!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

NFL quarterback Rush Riggins has it all. a perfectly honed body, agora nice that is sexy and irresistible charisma. Every girl want to be with him.....except Ava Vanderbilt.

Ava has made it very clear to Rush that his relate takes flirtation will not change a thing. She only has one rule. She doesn't date football players. Rush though did not get to where he is by giving up. He is nothing if not persistent. The end zone is not the

So disappointed. I expected more from this author or I would never have purchased this book at full price. Since I'm a big sports romance fan plus a S.E Hall fan I was expecting a new, fresh storyline. Unfortunately that's not what happened. If you have read "It Had to Be You (Chicago Stars Book 1)" by Susan Elizabeth Phillips you have read this book and Susan did a better job. This is nothing more than a tired retread of the same story. I even liked "Taking Shots (Assassins #1)" by Toni Aleo us ...more

Ava and Rush.
Well let me tell you. It starts out where shy, never done this before, Ava meets sexy Quarterback Rush and ends up having a one night stand. Only she doesn't know she will be crossing paths with him again in ways she never imagined.
I fell in love with Ava right from the start. Not only because of her true, honest personality but also because of her commitment to honour her grandfathers whisked.
Rush, what can I say. Sexy is one word that comes to mind. But that's not all, once you

As soon as I saw that HIlary Storm and S.E. Hall had teamed up I knew it would be a wild ride but I had no idea how WILD it was going to get until I dove into the pages of Quarterback Sack. From the beginning I connected with Ava and all her rule following ways and I couldn't wait to see how her story would play out in the hands of these wonderful authors. When Rush enters into the picture things get seriously laugh out loud funny with a little chaos thrown in for good measure and I never wanted ...more

Steamy sex, alpha male football player and sassy driven woman. What more could you ask for from SE Hall and Hilary Storm?

From the moment this book started I was completely taken by Rush Riggins! This hot quarterback from Tennessee had me wriggling in my seat as I read each delicious demand that poured from his mouth. Hall & Storm's character oozed with confidence that was sexy on and off the field.

Rush Riggins is every bit cocky and confident. Not to mention sexy. He knows you don't get where you want to be by sleeping your way to the top-- you work hard for it.

Ava Vanderbuilt is strong and witty. She represents a true lady. Someone who wants to do what's right and is willing to sacrifice love because of it.

Rush and Ava's attraction to one another is off the charts hot!!!

Wow!! I can't say enough great things about this book. The comical banter between Rush and Ava is awesome. However the sexual chemistry is off the charts. My first impression of Rush was "he's an ass" however a few pages later I was totally in love with him. He's sexy and confident and will have you chanting his name. Yes he's that good!! Ava is an absolute sweetheart who captures your heart instantly. She's the good girl looking for love but denying herself at the same time. Quarterback Sack is ...more
