Know what happens when you don’t bother dating all through college because you’re much too busy trying to stay on top of your classes?
I’ll give you a little hint…
It starts with the letter V and ends with irginity.
Ding, ding, ding… nailed it.
Well… at least something got nailed. Because it certainly wasn’t me.
Just to be clear, it’s not like I’ve been holding out all these years, waiting around for Mr. Perfect to ride in and sweep me off my feet. Nor did I take a sacred vow of chastity. It just kind of happened… or didn’t happen, as the case may be.
Know what’s even worse than that?
Wait for it…
Having the bad boy of the NFL, who also happens to be one of my brother’s teammates, offer to take care of that pesky little problem for me. Which is downright laughable, because if there’s one person I’m barely able to tolerate- it’s JT Higgins. He may be amazing out on the field, but he’s even more notorious for his bar brawls, drunken antics, and the women who flock to him in droves. It goes without saying that he’s keeping some clinic in business with swab tests and penicillin. I’ve had three long years of practice shutting down his every advance.
So ignoring him should be a piece of cake, right?
JT was given an ultimatum at the end of last season- clean up his act or get traded. For some odd reason, my brother Liam has decided to take him under his wing. So now the golden haired, green eyed mountain of muscle is around all the time. Sitting across from me during Thursday night family dinners. Knocking on the door and pushing his way inside when I’m babysitting my niece and nephews. Showing up at the shop where I get coffee on my way to school.
If all that weren’t bad enough, he has this annoying habit of watching me. What I’d like to know is when exactly did his gaze start to feel like a physical caress? It’s enough to make me scream. It’s also enough to send my pulse skittering and my resolve to the brink of shattering. Because this new and improved JT… the one who doesn’t whore around or drink, well- he’s more difficult to resist. Especially when all that sexy attention is focused solely on me.
First thing I want to mention about this book is that if you’ve read the Barnett Bulldogs series by Jennifer Sucevic, then you’ll be interested in this book. Although it doesn’t say it anywhere, I’m sure that this book is part of the series, or at least a spinoff, because this is Claire’s story, Liam’s sister from the the third book. If you haven’t read the series, don’t worry, you can totally read this as a stand alone.
Now, the book was really easy to read and follow so I finished it in like two days. The storyline and characters I liked a lot. In this book you get to experience how much Claire’s hard work that we saw in Liam’s story, where she first appeared, has payed off. I loved Claire & JT together. JT is nothing like other people think he is. He was a player and he was a bad boy sure, but really all he wanted was to be with Claire from the beginning. Their relationship was so sweet and at some point heartbreaking but in the end, it was really amazing and worth a read.
