Genre: Contemporary Romance / Sports Romance
Rating (Out of 5): 🌟🌟
Sports are huge in my household. Therefore I am a sucker for a good sports romance and I love books with a “slow burn” even more. But this book just didn’t do it for me. Was there sports? Yes – football, cheerleading, mascoting (not a real word, I know). Was it a slow burn? I guess? I’m totally shrugging right now. I felt the author’s writing was sub-par. The writing didn’t have much depth to it so there wasn’t much character development or background. I tried….I mean I really tried to get into this book. But I just couldn’t. I had a really hard time believing the female lead, Katie, even had feelings for Davis, the male lead. Davis was your typical a-hole of a jock in the beginning who soften as the book went on. I felt like he liked Katie eventually but was it love? You tell me. No, really. Please tell me because I felt nothing.
Side tangent: Katie calls Davis several times a “real pill”. A real pill? Is this a thing people say? I feel like that is something my 93 year old grandmother would say. Is “real pill” making a comeback?
Conclusion: I don’t think the book was downright horrible. It was just OK. However, if you want a light romance with sports and a slow burn with a HEA, this book may be for you.
