|Um… Why have I NOT read anything by Lauren Blakely before? I have to say… I LOVED this book. There are SO many things that worked for me here.
First off, I LOVED Jones and Jillian. I felt that they were both grown adults and honestly it was refreshing to have a sports romance with two characters who acted the way that these two did.
Jones… *Melt* seriously he was freaking ADORABLE. I loved his character. I loved how cocky he was and the banter that he has with everyone in his life. His love for his family and for his dog Cletus just pulled at all the heart strings.
Jillian, I really liked her character. She was strong, independent, she knew what she wanted in life and she was honest.
I don’t want to give away spoilers, because that isn’t how I roll, but seriously this is by far one of my favorite sport romances I have ever read. The banter between the characters was HILARIOUS, my husband kept staring at me like I had lost my mind. The scenes… HOLY CRAP they were HOT! Especially the shower scene (fanning myself). Man… just yes it was AWESOME.
I felt that the story flowed very well, the character development was great, the pacing was excellent. I can’t wait to read more from Lauren Blakely. She has moved to my one click list for sure!
