When the dean of students asked me for a favor, I had no idea it would mean tutoring Owen Dawson.

Me, forced to spend time with Boston University’s notorious quarterback?

With his dark hair, chiseled body, and a promising future playing in the NFL, every guy on campus wants to be him. Every girl wants to be under him.

Every girl, except me.

OMG....I didn't think Jacob could write a more swoon worthy character than Trevor from Tackle, but man, I think he just might have. Just finished Jock, which is the next installment in the Boston Terriers series, and I have 2 words: Owen Dawson!! I am head over heels in love with him. As soon as smart, beautiful Eliza Michel is asked to tutor Boston University's sexy as sin quarterback, Owen Dawson, she knows she is a goner. Quite frankly I was a goner too! This book has all the feels. Its ...more

Oh. My. God. To say I loved this book would be a damn understatement. IT. WAS. PERFECTION. Just wow.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

Give me a sports romance and I’m putty in your hands. Sports romance’s are my absolute weakness and this beauty just hit the damn spot, head on.

Eliza and Owen are two characters I know I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. They’re both complete opposites and Jock just proves that sometimes opposites do in fact attract.

Owen is a jock, a beautiful,

I can not sympathize with a hero who has an affair with a married woman for 6 months.
And he does not regret it, sex was good and she was cool, according to him.
He is an adult, for God's sake, he has no excuse for this deplorable and irresponsible behavior. He risked his career for sex with an older, married woman who worked for the team.
The beating he took was nothing, in my opinion.
He is not worthy.
I gave up and I'll move on.

When Owen Dawson is suspended from Boston U's football team, then attacked afterward, he is naturally a little down on life. Until he meets the cute girl who's going to tutor him while he catches up with the schoolwork he missed out on while in the hospital. Eliza has the wrong idea about Owen. She figures he is the typical cocky manwhore football player that all jocks are. Until she starts tutoring him and finds out he's actually a sweetheart with a huge heart. As the two fall effortlessly into

Wow...just, wow. I don’t even know where to begin with how amazing this book is. This series is one of my favorites and I always look forward to the next knowing it will be amazing, but Jock blew me away. It was one of those stories that, unexpectedly, reaches you all the way to your heart, yet you still are laughing along because it’s full of humor and wit... something Jacob is known for.

DNF at prologue. Was written with short jerky sentences that my 4th grader writes. Too many good books to spend time on something I knew I’d be frustrated with. Just not for me.

I have loved the Boston Terriers since I picked up Penalty over a year ago and with each swoon worthy jock I have fallen more in love with them , but Owen had just dethroned my Brady as TOP DOG! Wow I couldn’t have pictured a better story or person for Owen and for the first part of the book I was so in the dark of where things would go and who would be his woman!

The twists and turns Chance provided just solidified his amazing ability to write stories that are full of intrigue and will leave

OMG!!! I just loved loved loved Owen and Eliza!!! Owen wasn’t your typical popular college quarterback. He was decent and smart; he was funny, kind and gorgeous. And he loved his family and was a loyal friend. He met Eliza when she was picked to tutor him after an incident which had him behind on school work. He was intrigued by the studious beauty but nothing was rushed.

Eliza was studious, mature and organized but she disliked jocks because of a bad experience. She was gorgeous but her main

This is the second Boston Terriers book that I've read. And thoroughly enjoyed it.
It can be read as a standalone.
Quite a bit of banter between the characters, which I loved.

Jacob Chance has done it again with another fantastic book that made me fall in love with the characters of the Boston Terriers world! Owen and Eliza are just so great, I just know everyone else will fall in love with them too.

Owen is the captain of the football team, but after a mistake his world starts to spiral out of control. Owen is such a great character, he is real, he shows his emotions which I just love. He is so sweet and caring towards Eliza, he seriously is the perfect guy!

Oh Owen freaking Dawson... your remorseful attitude after that big as reveal in the opening chapter - got me feeling some true redemption!

I really enjoyed this sweet read. Jacob Chance really knows how to get his heroes on point! Dawson after everything in the beginning, was such a great character to read about. His true nature and the progress of his character was awesome. Eliza was great - though I had a couple of things I had a problem with in regards to ‘her’ only, her own remorsefulness in

DNF 55%. I just wasn’t feeling the love here. The couple declare their feelings and I just wonder why. I am not getting the bond, nor the chemistry. I don’t really understand why the h’s daughter is such a secret and I’m starting to feel annoyed that she isn’t being more forthcoming about it. And I’m a little bored by the niceness of their relationship. It’s probably just me. This is my second JC novel, maybe it’s just not meant to be between us. The jury is out. I might return to this at a ...more

Eliza Michel is asked for a favour by the dean of students at the Boston University where she attends. What she didn’t bank on was being asked to tutor Owen Dawson, the quarterback for the university football team. A good-looking guy with a promising future playing for the NFL, he is everything the girls want except Eliza isn’t drawn into that. A popular guy with a reputation as all the football players for The Boston Terriers have.

I really enjoyed this story. A great slow build up between a female tutor and a live-by-the-seat-of-your-pants football player.

Wow, wow, wow! To say that I loved this book would be a huge understatement. I have read and loved this entire series, and no disrespect to the other Terrier boys, but Owen has completely blown them out of the water! Even my own personal favourite, Brady! I always look forward to a new Jacob Chance book knowing full well it will be incredible and with Jock I was completely blown away. Jacob once again shows his unique talent of drawing the reader in from the very first page into his stories and ...more

OMG I LOVED THIS SO HARD!!!! Sports romance are my favs, and I've really liked the other books in this series, BUT this one is by far my fav!

I love how different Eliza and Owen are in this book. Own appears to be the typical jock and Eliza is anything but typical and a nerd. Them being totally different worked soooo well for them, and it really helped them click. They really were not what I expected, both of them, it was so refreshing! I loved that Owen wasn't the "typical" jock, just like the

I absolutely loved this book. I have read the whole Boston Terriers Series and loved them all. But, I think Owen's story is my favorite. I am trying to be as vague as possible with my review because the less you know about this story the more exciting it is to read. Owen and Eliza's story is beautifully written. The relationship moves slowly, which is a little more realistic. There are some "awe" moments, "WTF" moments, and "I did not see that coming" moments, which makes this story amazing. ...more

You will not get off the edge of your seat to see how this one ends! I held my breathe for a few parts because holy cow Jacob really out did himself with Eliza! I have to say I have a favorite cover of a different book (Canvas) but my favorite book to read is this one now! I couldn’t get enough and now I still want more of them!!

Eliza is nothing like I thought she would be from what I read in the beginning!! She grows so much from that girl who goes to a Halloween party with her cousin to a

Jock is the fifth installment in the Boston Terriers series.

One more time we are plunge into Boston University and its football theme that we adore, with its football players that we love even more. Everyone wished to be part of this universe.

One more time, Jacob Chance offers us a flawless lovable hero in this sweet heartwarming well-written romance. Owen Dawson is considerate, charming, funny and big-hearted.

WOW Jock blew me away......

The Boston Terrier Series just keeps on getting better with each release and Jacob Chance absolutely nailed this one. It was both brilliantly written and at times was completely unexpected but in the best way possible.

I believe Jock to be THE BEST Book to date for Jacob, he has very quickly secured himself as a brilliant sports romance writer who is not above giving us way more than expected with each Release.

Jock is Owen Dawson’s story and I absolutely adore this

He was a JOCK. She’s just the nerdy girl. They say opposites attract...Owen and Eliza were perfectly matched!

Being back with the Boston Terriers is like coming home again. A series with a great group of characters and I look forward to each player’s story.

Owen is not what I expected; he was so much more! The author definitely took me by surprise more than once.

Owen just made a mess of his life and possibly his future. Now he’s living with the consequences. It’s time to get his life back.

Oh my GOSH what a story! Are the exact words I spoke out loud as I finished the last sentence. I have been hooked on the Boston Terriers Series from the beginning and even though they’re all standalone books I’ve read them all as they were released. I didn’t think the previous stories could be topped but here we are with Jock and I’m blown away with Owen and Eliza. Their story is filled with friendship, laughter, romance and even a little emotional coaster ride for a bit that will have you ...more

First, I couldn't put it down!! I've read it in one sitting forgetting that there were things actually going on around me lol
Second, I freaking love this series. I think it's one of Jacob Chances best to date.
Third, if you think you loved Trevor wait till you meet Owen...he's even more swoon worthy.
If you haven't already figured it out by now... I really enjoyed this book. It's full of funny bantering back and forth between the boys, friendships that will last a

Owen tries to do right by his girl, “but I’m not going to do that tonight, or anytime soon. Instead, I’m going to go home like a effing boy scout and think of you while I… well, you can imagine what I’ll be doing.” Owen is a really considerate man, but I think selfishly he doesn't want to let his girl out of his sight, “I’m going too. I’ll pick you up and take you wherever you want to go. I make a great chauffeur.” I loved this book, I fell in love with Owen, and I loved seeing the bond that all ...more
