DNF when I hit the 50 % mark.

No…just no. Personally, there's a difference between erotica and porn. And in this case the sex scenes are definitely very porn-ish. Further, the sex is all over the book.


Quarterback Blitz starts off with Kyran meeting Anna in a locker room after a football match. They have a short conversation and then they get it on. I've read 50 % of this book and not one single sports scene was to be found. Unfortunately. I'd say almost 40 % was "de

1 1/2 stars (rounded up to 2 stars, because the book had a plot - too bad it was buried under all the non-stop, mind-numbing sex)

"Favorite" passage:
Anna was the best kisser he’d known. She responded with pure, feminine skill, especially the way her tongue lured his into her mouth and sucked it almost to her throat.
Fuck yeah, she didn’t gag.
Her smile wavered then, her eyes on his cock. "I knew you were big when I touched you that first time. But seeing you, jeez, Kyran, that’s never going to

Sex, sex, and more SEX! OMG, did the sex get in the way of (what turned out to be) a pretty decent story. I realize that this is an erotic romance, and don't get me wrong, the sex was plenty hawt, but too much of a good thing gets in the way of the story. And the story wasn't bad. Luckily, I stuck with it, even though I was tempted to ditch it a time or two (these two were either constantly wet, spewing, or in danger of 'spewing')!

I love a good hot sports romance, but this was a little too over-

This is one series I will enjoy reading. I love the author's descriptions of both bodies (which I don't always get enough in these eroitca books) and that included tattoos. Yummy!

A 40-year-old woman tried not to fall for this football player 10 years her junior. After all, they went on a date and they talked for hours but he never called back. It turned out to be a misunderstanding and she was willing to give one-night-stand a try (though he has more in mind) on her birthday. After all, she only
3-3.5 stars

This was a good story. I liked both Kyran and Anna and enjoyed their story. This is the first story I've read by this author and based off this I may try more of her work in the future.

Anna is 40 years old, a phys-Ed teacher and assistant coach of the high school's JV football team. Anna hasn't had much luck with men in her life and all have been lacking. Her last relationship was a college professor, Will, that she was engaged to until she found him cheating on her with a grad studen

Wow. Talk about a new twist on older woman/younger man relationships! I thought Kimberly Zant was it with her Taboo/The GILF story, and then-- Kaboom! Kabomb! Frances Stockton writes something unique, spicy and different featuring a hunky hero of the sports arena and his phys-ed lady love, all with a spin on ugly exes with motivations that will make you cringe.

Kyran is a rough around the edges, alpha male type with a big heart. He's not hearts and flowers, he's scary real and honest. I love it!

This book was so delicious I don’t know where to begin. Kyran Black is the type of hero every woman would love to have. Talented, smart, caring, and a dirty talker, he speaks his mind and follows through with his word. On the flip side Anna personifies women of her age group and even some younger. The fears, thoughts of inadequacies, flaws she sees that would be invisible to anyone else give us a direct visual of what she believes she lacks. What she fails to see is that aging doesn’t make her l ...more

Hunter's Review

This is one of the best erotic romances I have ever read. It is Anna’s fortieth birthday and although she has managed to get stuck in her mascot uniform, a job she uses to supplement her teaching career, she is excited about going out with her girlfriends to look at strippers. Kyran has other ideas. He has lusted after Anna since he first saw her, even if she gave him a fake phone number that night so that he couldn’t call her.

I believe in not judging a book by it's cover and I'm glad I didn't with this one. I almost didn't read it because the cover turned me off. Once I got past those two pictures I was able to vision the MC's in my own mind and the book really took off from their.
There was actually a nice mystery written in amongst all the flaming hot sex.
At the beginning Anna was written as being very reserved and was really surprised at how quickly she turned into a little sex machine. I was beginning to get tir

Looking for a steamy seduction? This book is for you, I could not finish it though. The first 5 chapters were a giant sex scene and it ages to get to the plot. When it finally did, it wasn't much of one.

The female lead is the mascot for the, Griffins, and a PE teacher. The male lead is the Griffin's 30 year old vertern quarterback who has taken to coaching. These two hit it off but the mascot is super worried about her age and then a reporter comes along to report on the quarterback but the sca

I'm working on reading a whole bunch of the books on my Nook and Kindle this year, and this was one of them. (Also, I'm doing an A-Z book challenge so this takes care of "Q", lol) Anyway, This book was alright, but I did notice that it was a bit drawn out in parts. On a positive note, I liked the resolution to the conflict and felt the author did a great job tying all that up. Also, she can write one helluva steamy scene. I mean, seriously, freaking, wowza!

The sec scenes were good, but the dialouge was crap. The story itself would be great if the actual writing was good. It's. Too bad because I wanted too read the other books in the series, but I may not unless the cost is really cheap (free or $.99) because the writing was bad. The only time the writing got good was during the sex scenes, but it got to the point where there was too much sexton (boy, never thought I'd ever say that!!!).

This erotic romance was a kindle freebie. With all the reviews I won't bother with the story line except to say that readers either loved it or hated it. I thought the story line itself was very good. Older woman/younger man is something you don't come across often in books. The characters had their insecurities and they were portrayed well. I think the heavy emphasis on sex, sex, sex got in the way of what was a really good story.
Heather in FL
This was a decent story. I saw others say there was too much sex, and there was a lot of sex. I found myself skimming a lot. But it was nice that Anna was so trusting of Kyran. He hadn't really given her any reason to think he was playing her, and as a 40+ woman, I can see how she might be unsure of his attention for the long run, but Kyran really pushed home that she was it for him. The sort of mystery of the story was interesting and kept the story moving along between bouts of sex.

An interesting, older woman/younger man configuration. Both main characters are involved with sports but there is a very warm love story between these two. There are problems which surface because of the lingering concern over the age difference and ex-lovers of both main characters that keep popping up in a very destructive way. Lots of twists and turns but a very good, full-length novel. I enjoyed it immensely.

This isn't my usual fair for getting my reading fix on, but I enjoyed this read. The fact that the author didn't use the cop-out method of having her character NOT talk about their doubts was refreshing. Even when the heroine thought she may have lost her man to an ex - she didn't storm off, no, she talked it out with him.
More authors should take note.

I picked up this book at a book signing. Glad I did. I loved the 40 year old woman. Maybe because I can relate.. The insecurities and the doubts. Not a huge fan of football but you really don't need to be. I liked the love story mixed in with some mystery. Would like to have seen an epilogue with what happens next..
For erotica this was not bad. I thought some of the dialog between the two main characters uneven. And, some of it just irritating. However, that was just a small part of this book. I would read more from this author when I am in the mood for this type of novel.
