He’s the guy no one likes…
Despite winning two national championships, JR “Ace” Anderson was sent packing from his old school after losing the trust of his coach. At Southern U, he has a second chance to prove that his college legacy isn’t endless debauchery and selfishness. But his reputation precedes him, and his teammates offer a chilly welcome in the locker room. The one person who is willing to accept him is the very woman he should stay away from—his new coach’s daughter.
She’s the girl everyone loves…
Bryant Johnson’s only goal in life is to make others happy, even at her own expense. One look at her father’s new star quarterback, and she knows that Ace is her next project. With a reputation for being a “jerk whisperer”, Bryant has spent her last three years at college reforming sorry behavior and turning bad boys into the best boyfriends ever. In Ace, though, she’s met with surly resistance and a sizzling attraction she doesn’t expect. Fixing this wounded warrior will be her biggest challenge yet. Not falling for him will be even harder.
Between her big heart and his damaged one, a battle is ensuing. In this game of love, every defense will crumble.
I have to admit that at first I thought this book was kind of weird. You see, Bryant calls her boyfriends projects. She wants to fix them in some way so that they’re not assholes to other girls. Bryant is always happy and helping others, and when Ace meets her he is kind of surprised because she literally tells him he’s her boyfriend, without really knowing each other. But then Ace warms up to that idea. This book had so much feeling and I loved that. There were some parts that I was kind of frustrated with Bryant but in the end the story was amazing.
