Feb 24, 2015

it was amazing
bookshelves: na-ya, keeper, male-pov, sports-h
Recommended for: if you loved The Hook Up
Read 3 times. Last read February 24, 2015 to February 25, 2015.

Genre: NA romance
Cliffy? No, HFN.

Sensuality: PG-13
Ho-meter: H = manho, h = 2 lovers + sexual trauma

This is the best sports NA romance that I have read since The Hook Up.

If you read my reviews, you know that I read a lot of NA and what really impressed me was the amount of emotional intelligence in the book. You rarely see 30 year olds act like adults anymore, much less two college juniors. Both H/h had damage but it didn't define their entire existence.

Other highlights were the banter and balanced portrayal of college life. I am really looking forward to the next book featuring the H's BFF.

Rating: 4.5

MelissaB I am so happy to hear that the college leads act more mature, that has been my biggest issue with most New Adult books, they act so much more immature than I remember being at that age.

I need to get to this one soon.

seton i just reread it a few days ago. it has replaced Easy as my fave NA.
