A handsome playboy. The coach’s forbidden daughter.
College football’s Most Valuable Player has met his match!
Worldbuilding: This story takes place in college and the characters mainly hang around Junior’s house.
Characters: The main characters in this novel are Eliza Pierce and Junior Morgan. Eliza has never been a daddy’s girl so when her father warns her away from his football team, she couldn’t care less. Especially when Junior Morgan goes out of his way to try to impress her. But this player has met his match and Eliza won’t be taken that easily. Junior is used to getting what he wants and what he wants is the new coach’s spitfire daughter. Even though he is told to stay away from her he can’t help but watch for her around campus. Can he convince her that having a little fun with him would be worth her while and that their rendezvous would be kept quiet? Or will his football career overshadow any chance they have together?
Plot: This is mainly a sports romance between Eliza and Junior, with some hidden surprises thrown in.
Writing: This novel is told in first person points of view of Eliza and Junior. It is the first novel in the Bad Baller series and is a standalone romance. I did feel at times that the dialogue was a bit cheesy so that is mostly why it wasn’t a five-star read for me.
Curb Appeal: I like this cover, but I wish it could have featured Eliza too! The blurb is short, sweet, and to the point. It sets the scene and lets the reader find out why these characters are pretty great.
Ultimately: This was a great start to a new sports romance standalone series. The characters were fun and Eliza was extra sassy! The chemistry between Junior and Eliza burned off my clothes at times and made their story even better! All in all, in you are in the mood for a hero who never quits when he sees what he wants and a heroine who makes her man work for what he wants then come check out Whip/Lash!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
