Good God can we please start being able to give negative stars for a book this bad?!? Two pretty awful characters. I had to skim it after the beginning because it was so God awful. The only reason I even give crap like this a shot after the beginning cluster*** is because occasionally something can have a rough start, but become an amazing book. This wasnt that time. I cant really figure out anything to like about this book. The start is bad enough. The guy humiliates the girl because she doesnt ...more

Peyton, College Quarterback, And Erin, Aspiring Journalist, Unwittingly Fall For One Another As Each Selfishly Uses The Other As A Means To An End. Erin Is Peyton's Unicorn, But The Quarterback Loses His Game Over His New Obsession. Great Chemistry!

This is the first book in a series of stand-alones about the King brothers. Stone King is a major league coach and sports legend. He is the father of four college-aged sons, all talented college athletes in their respective sports. Stone has been a

Absolutely loved this first book in a new series by Teagan Kade. Erin and Peyton are one hot and sexy couple. They may have started off thinking they had nothing in common. He from a privileged life and she from a more modest one. Once they start spending time together they find they share a love for foreign films, and literature. Peyton has not had an easy upbringing. He has made it a point to hide what he's been through. Erin is trying to make it as a journalist and thinks she can write a ...more

Torrid and multiple twists
I loved the unbearable character of Peyton from the first chapter when he first met Erin. It makes your mouth water because I was wondering how the author was going to turn the situation around. The story is torrid and full of twists, with characters full of temperament, enthralling, who find themselves in situations of which they do not know how to get out of it and it is rather sometimes unexpected. Between a career and a fairly heavy past, Peyton and Erin's

I love Teagans sports romances, and this was no different. It was so good. Teagan has a way of just pulling you into the story and keeping you hooked. You will fell what the characters feel and there was a time when I wanted to bonk them both and their heads and ask what are you thinking. Peyton and Erin have two completely different backgrounds, but also have some similar tastes. Peyton is the King of Crestfall and Erin is a reporter who wants to make it big. She thinks Peyton can help with ...more

If you like books with a lot of bedroom, halls, outdoors, etc. time, then you will love this book. Sometimes it is harder for me to read books about bad boys on campus since I am older. I must say that these college students like to have lots of fun, drink, and women. Peyton King is the king on campus and loves the attention. Erin has already graduated and works for the school paper. I had a hard time with her character after getting into the book. I thought she was really getting into Peyton. ...more

Erin Nash is eager for her professional life to begin going somewhere. For that to happen she has to go deep... And who better to help with that than resident campus king, Peyton King? It's not like she even likes the guy. He's too arrogant, a playboy and not all that bright, for sure. Then, she gets to know the real Peyton, and finds real gold.

I liked the banter and ribbing throughout the book. The secondary characters were awesome, too. I had a bit of an issue with Erin. It was hard for me to

Erin, an aspiring journalist at the college and star football player, Peyton King, are going to take you through a wide variety of emotions in this addictive & compelling masterpiece.

Opposites definitely attract in this book, however, all throughout their journey, you can not help but route for them. I honestly could not put my Kindle down. Every romance reader should follow along as these two characters find their happily ever after.

I was beyond fortunate to have requested an advanced

Peyton is living the life at college - popular & can get any girl he wants. With the exception of Erin. He cant figure out why she would turn him down. And since no one has done that before, shes his next conquest. Erin is a journalist looking for her next big story that will help her career. Getting closer to Peyton could be her big break, but what happens when she falls for him?

This was a great read about two people who surprisingly fell for each other. Peyton is unfamiliar with his

Ahhh Teagan knows how I love a sports romance and a football one at that. I love that all of Peyton's brothers are into sports, which means, if Teagan is going to write a book about the whole family, then we are going to be getting a lot more sports romances...WINNING!!

What a great read. Peyton King, the college football badboy, and Erin Nash, the college paper reporter. I'll keep this review short and just say that if Erin had done to me what she did to Peyton, there would have been no

A new book by Teagan. I read it in one sitting. It was a fun, relaxing read. This story is about Peyton and Erin. Peyton comes from a wealthy family and hes the college star quarterback playboy. Hes not real happy when Erin turns down his advances at a party. Thats when he gets she is different, refreshingly so. Erin is well aware of Peytons reputation and she isnt impressed but that doesnt mean that he cant help her achieve her career goals. She is determined to find out as much as she can ...more

Throw Down by Teagan Kade a five-star read that you will want to throw down with. I love me some sports romance, but not everyone has the pacing and oomph right, but do you know what Teagan Kade just pulls it out every single time, she writes sports romance like a team boss. Peyton King is literally the King of the university, but just because he wears the crown, doesnt always mean that he wants to be king as we all know all that glitters isnt gold. Erin is the one who doesnt fall at his feet, ...more

Erin is an aspiring journalist, working hard to make her dreams come true. When she's given the assignment to write about jocks at school and their hard-partying lifestyle, she is given the perfect "in" when she catches the eye of the King himself: Peyton King. Peyton is one top of the world - at least the school world - star football player and, well, a player all around, renowned for his prowess on the field and in bed (or against a wall, or pretty much anywhere). When the unlikely pair find ...more

I liked Erin at first and could not stand Peyton. He was typical arrogant jerk, that thought he was God's gift to women. Once he started showing the real Peyton I liked him. I really enjoyed the banter and humor between the characters. I found the secondary characters great. The King brothers were a trip I can't wait for their stories. The one King that surprised me was Stone how he was there. In my opinion Throw Down is predictable, but I'm okay with that. I enjoyed Throw Down and was ...more

Erin and Peyton's story is intense.
The plot is a slow increase of a supposed fling with no strings attached, leading to a full-fledged love affair, with some unexpected twists and turns that kept me on my toes and made me read a little faster, just to find out what would happen next. It's a story about second chances in love and forgiveness with a touch of sex and crime that invites its readers to look deeper, behind the surface.

I am looking forward to the stories of the other three King

Teagan Kade is one of my favorite authors and I love the way she tells a story. I enjoyed this book, HEA included, even though I thought it was a bit unrealistic. Peyton's bad boy is highly likable and not really so bad after all. In fact, he's kind of sweet. Erin is a little harder because even though she's falling for Peyton, she has a hidden agenda that could hurt him very badly. This steamy romance sucked me in from page one and it is a great read.

Throw Down

The very first book I read by Ms. Kade was another college sports/bad boy themed story. Although this isn't my favorite genre, I recognized then that Ms. Kade had a way with the genre. In my opinion this story shows that she continues to have that magic touch. Looking forward to reading more stories in this new series.

Soooooo good! This book was a fun read that I couldn't put down. Its about the alpha jock, head player on campus and the quiet newspaper reporter. The two couldn't be anymore different if they tried. Teagan does a fantastic job making you like Erin and Peyton and then making you want to wring their necks. As always there are juicy scenes, lots of banter and even some backstabbing. I voluntarily received an ARC copy of this book and loved it soooo much I had to buy a copy too.

Peyton is the campus playboy and Erin is the girl that is going to bring him to his knees.
This story had the bad boy falls the good girl thing but Erin isnt as good as you think.
I was pleasantly surprised by the route Teagan took this story. You thought you knew exactly where it was going but proven wrong. Also, Teagan wasnt lying when she said this story was steamy, its steamy with a capital S.

There are so many parts of this book that resonated with me and totally captivated me, and I loved it! The ferris wheel scene was amazing and, now I have a wish list! Peyton is everything!!! Erin made a major faux pax, and I almost wanted to cut her out of the story. She messed up big time, but Peyton was gracious and generous! I liked that Peyton's dad finally grew up and developed feelings and common sense. Looking forward to Titus's story next.

For fans of sport romance this is a one click for you. Erin and Peyton had a hate/love relationship and you will enjoy the banter between them. Once feelings play a role in their unique relationship, chemistry sizzle and the loving gets hot. This is only the start of the King family and I hope to see all the brothers get their HEA since their played a role in this first book. Great characters, a storyline that was entertaining made for an enjoyable read that doesnt disappoint. ...more

Teagan Kade has gone and done it again. Great book from start to finish. I love bad boy books and to me Peyton King is a bad boy. I thought that he and Erin were great together. They made the pages of the book sizzle! The characters are all fun and the story is beyond entertaining. I look forward to the next book by this author.

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book.

This is another wonderful sports romance by Teagan Kade, this author writes this genre incredibly well. The storyline is fast-paced and well-written, there are plenty of steamy moments between Peyton and his unicorn, Erin. They have great chemistry but they have a bit of a hill to climb over in order to get their HEA.

Erin is a journalist who has a paper to written on frat parties, and who better to write about than quarterback and bad boy Peyton. These two are opposites yet together they are perfect. This is a well written story which is a steamy sports romance which had me totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner. I highly recommend for all.
