I’m the girl from the school of hard knocks.
Nothing has ever come easy for me. So forgive me if I’m a bit reluctant about Kincaid Griffin – born-with-a-silver-spoon in his mouth, conceited college hoops player. A guy who could get any girl he wants, and yet, is suddenly everywhere I am trying to woo me. The more I protest, the more persistent he becomes.
I’m a lucky bastard.
Let’s face it. As a college athlete, I don’t chase girls – they come to me. I’m as arrogant and cocky as they come, getting nearly everything I want, whenever I want. But there is nothing sweeter than a girl who plays hard to get. And Ainsley Locker is so full of confidence that she knocks me off my feet from the moment I meet her. She’s a challenge. And I like challenges. So I go full-court press to win her over.
But when a stupid mistake turns viral, slam dunking all over my life in a media frenzy, my spot on the team may be in jeopardy, along with my shot at winning the girl.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Clapping my hands!! I am loving these characters and different sports themes series. I haven’t read many, if any, sports theme characters so this book was awesome for me. I feel like I read more Shifter paranormal or MC books. SO this was a great and nice departure for me to read.
Ainsley is a girl without any help in life. You wanna talk about given a crappy life but still made something out of herself and still striving for more and better!!! She is taking on 2 jobs, raising her teen age sister and trying to finish nursing school. Meeting a boy or even dating are far off her list of things to do. When she meets a cocky guy at one her many jobs, she is overly annoyed with is sexual come-ons and rich boy persona.
Cade has lived the life of privilege. He has money and since he is a star athlete he gets a lot of attention for being him. He can have any girl and they sure don’t ever turn him down…I mean he is CADE!!! When he gets into trouble and is getting talked to by his parents, he is stunned the waitress isn’t all over him. Doesn’t she know he is number 23. I gotta admit. I thought Cade was a mega DB and was high fiving Ainsley for rebuffing him.
As the story continues, Cade runs into Ainsley again. This time he SEES her for what she is…different and he is really intrigued in what makes him want to get to know her. The couple being navigating around dating while dealing with skeletons they both have in their closet. Cade’s secret send his girl off the deep end. I was kinda annoyed with her for her over reaction and then she over reacts again in the end of the book. Yes I get what she has been thought and was glad Mica was there to kick her butt into gear. Cade most definitely does redeem himself from my original beginning thoughts about hm. Sierra definitely let us, the reader, see his growth in the book.
I am super excited to read Mica and Lance. That books is going to be a good one I can already tell!!!
Sierra Hill wrote her first full-length romance after a corporate acquisition led her to a stint of unemployment, offering her some quality writing time.
She loves writing about the fictional characters that live in her brain who constantly shout for their own love story to be told.
Sierra resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband of twenty years and her long-haired, German Shepherd. She is currently working on her next book.
Thanks for reading and reviewing her books. Keep the passion alive!
