How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

Knox Masters knows what he wants, and he gets it. All-American football player? Check. NFL pros scouting him? Check. Now he's set his sight on two things: the national title and Ellie Campbell. Sure, she's the sister of his teammate, but that's not going to stop him. Especially not when he's convinced that Ellie is the one.

But Ellie isn't as sure. She's trying to start a new life, and she's not interested in a relationship...with anyone. Besides, it's not just her cardinal rule of never dating her brother's teammates that keeps her away; Ellie has a dark secret that would jeopardize everything Knox is pursuing.

Too Kelsey Grammer

The story was enjoyable. The female narration worked. The male narrator reminded me of Kelsey Grammer. Didn't at all like the voice of a college age guy imo.

Sweet Virgin Football Player Falls In Love

Knox, a college football player is headed to the pros. One day out running he meets El, a fellow players sister.
Knox is constantly approached by women but is wanting to find 'the one'...who happens to be El...Their road to happiness is difficult but eventually they fall in love and to steamy sex!
It's great to have a virginal male for a change with values...and to meet a girl who actually appreciates him.
There are sweet moments, hot moments, and angst that adds tension to the story but doesn't overwhelm it.
I Love Jen Fredrick books, the majority if the time and always get a close look from me.
Can't say I loved the voices of the dual narrators, they sounded too old..but they did do a good job with emotion and timing.
Worth credit or the cash...I'll listen to it over and over.

Male voice did not depict part

The story was fine but the voices were too staged. The male voice needed to soften his impeccable articulation to sound more like a football player. He didn't read the Warriors record correctly.

4 Sacked Stars

Knox and Ellie,
Hmm I give this a 4 star rating because I like the story line and it was over all good.

I just wanted to know more about Knox, we get a pretty good picture of Ellie and her life and background. But for me I just feel like we skimmed over Knox.

I loved the interactions with the team there were some pretty funny things.
I even loved the interaction with Ellie and her brother even if he was a little naive about his grades. Did he not suspect at all really??

I just all around like this book I will probably re read it I liked it so much maybe I will get past my hang up of not knowing all there is to know about Knox lol we will see.
Also this swoon!
"We didn't fall for each other, we fell into each other."

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Boring AF

This book is totally boring. Thought I should at least try to make it to chapter 5, but nope couldn't do it. Found myself drifting off every 2 mins. Totally predictable. I'm at chapter 2 and I can guess exactly what will happen in the book.

Wrong Narrators for the Characters

The story was okay for an insta-love YA sports story. It was predictable, and the H was borderline stalky at times, but the narration KILLED this story for me. Both narrators sounded like they were in their late 30's-early 40's at best. The male narrator enunciated like he was performing Shakespeare at the Globe theater. I read the book before I listened to it, but I could not get all the way through the narration.

Liked it.

4/5 rating: An enjoyable listen. Some negative points, but nothing significant.

On the plus side... the characters are sweet and engaging. The narration is good. The football sub-plot is suspenseful. I really liked the hero character being the virgin - unique. Lots of passion.

On the negative side... a very slow burn. Some people might find it too slow.

4 Sacked by love stars

Really liked this story despite the insta-attraction. Knox is a very likeable hero and I loved that he knew exactly what he wanted. Ellie was sweet and loyal to a fault.

Cute male virgin story

This was a cute NA romance featuring a male virgin. I liked the fact he was an identical twin, and so few women passed his so called "test" to show they were the "one".

Elliot, the heroine was cool. I think she did too much to please her family that she claim off as an able-ist savior. That annoyed me about her but she was cool in every other way.

Knox was a cute guy. Not sexy in a physical sense to me but was great in every other way. I like how he really valued himself like we expect female virgins to. I looooove male virgin stories and this was a really good one. It followed great beats as well as ease into love making instead of forcing knox into a "do everything in one day" type situation. The only thing that would've made the story better would be a younger college sounding male voice. the female voice sounded young enough though. good job.

Sacked by a Good Story

The focus of this story is the relationships, and how refreshing that we have a hero actually looking for love rather than one-night stands. Then theres the sibling relationship. These characters care for eachother. With a smidgen of angst and a whole lot of sweetness, this was a good story. Just wish the male narration was better.
