Mini Review: Play by Play by Kate Donovan

Rating: ★★★ stars
Date published: September 9th, 2013
Publisher: Beyond the Page Publishing
Synopsis: Former college football star Jake Dublin’s wildly popular sports blog also details his personal life. And lately it’s all about Sophie, the pretty young woman who just moved into his apartment building. His readers know her only as “Elevator Girl,” and they’re all rooting for Jake to score.

The blog posts and banter with his followers are all in good fun, and he fully intends to come clean with the woman he’s wooing and wowing. That is, until she confides that she grew up in a house full of jocks and even dated a few. Her verdict? Never again!

Jake knows he needs to confess. But somewhere along the line he fell in love with Sophie and can’t stand the thought of losing her. So he procrastinates, and blogs, and digs himself deeper into a hole, until it all leads to a showdown that’s so nail-biting, not even the best play-by-play guy could ever have seen it coming.

What I Thought:

Jake and Sophie are adorable.  They both like each other, although they're both unaware it, and one of them has made his admiration public.  I do think Jake screwed up by not confessing to Sophie about what he did/had done.  I really enjoyed reading the commentary on Jake's blog posts as well as his replies.  I think it was a great idea to include them.

There was a twist at the end I didn't see coming and I was very surprised to see book 2 won't pick up where this book left off.  I really can't wait to see if/how Jake will get Sophie to speak to him.  The story is very short and flies by quickly, but you'll be left wanting more just as I was!
