Synopsis: In this fun and saucy romance novel, all-star college basketball player Thea dominates on the courts—and off—with a rock star who is determined to win her over.
Thea is a star basketball player at UConn on track to be Rookie of the Year. That is, if she can stay focused on the game. Lately that hasn’t been going so well, as her knee has been bothering her. But that’s not the only thing on her mind…
Ever since rock star Keaton Lowe surprised her in the girl’s locker room, Thea can’t stop thinking about him. On top of his status and enticing ways, he seems to know everything about her. But some of his actions cross the line, and Keaton needs to be punished. Will Thea keep her head in the game, or get distracted by her other favorite pastime—reprimanding her rock star?
What I Thought:
I love the idea of a sports star falling in love with a rock star and vice versa, so I was very eager to read this book. I found that I had to struggle to get through the book, but it wasn't all bad.
I liked Thea. I was a little surprised at how quickly and how much she trusted Keaton. I liked Keaton too, but there were times when I wondered what his game was, no pun intended. For a while I was wondering what direction the story would take. The story is fast paced which is good, but I got confused regarding the tournament and the different places Thea was playing in.
The biggest downfall for me was the BDSM and that was pretty tame too. I just wasn't able to get into the book. I felt like it took way too long for the book to hook my attention and even then I was skimming the sex scenes. I also felt like some issues were alluded to but never followed up on.
This book has some fabulous reviews and even though it took me longer than expected to finish it, please do give this book a chance. It may not have hit all the high notes with me, but it might for you. I think there is a sequel coming, so I may just find the answers to the unanswered questions I have.
