Happy official release day to Tabatha Vargo! Sacked is live and available at e-tailers everywhere! Just check out the excerpt and find out what makes Sawyer so irresistible!
When Sawyer Reed wants something, he gets it.
And I WANT her. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s already mine.
Her resistance is futile because once I start a play, I always follow through.
And I ALWAYS win. Nothing, not even the deep-seated hate I have for my rival, Jacob Byrd, is going to keep me from my endgame. And my endgame is Gretchen Cole.
But I have to keep my head in the game. Everyone knows what happens to a quarterback when he loses focus. He gets SACKED.
Pulling away, he looked down at me, a sexy grin on his face. “You’re so fucking sweet, baby,” he whispered. “I bet you taste sweet, too.”
I moaned loudly as he slipped his finger inside the lace covering me and swiped it softly across my throbbing center. Before I could really begin to enjoy it, he pulled his glistening finger out and sucked it between his lips. Seeing him taste my juices turned me on in a way I never imagined and the throbbing intensified.
“Mmmm. Honeysuckle.” He closed his eyes and sucked once more at his finger.
I moved to lean into him, but before I could, he dropped to his knees in front of me. His hands moved up my outer thighs, taking my dress with it, and then he was peeling my boy shorts off. Cold air rushed over my soaked folds as he shuffled them down my thighs to my knees and over my boots. And when I lifted my foot to help him take them off, he smiled to himself.
This was really happening, and I wasn’t sure I could stop it even if I wanted to. I was too far gone. I don’t know if it was the last few weeks of mental foreplay or the alcohol I’d consumed, but the second he slipped his hot tongue between my folds and sucked me, I didn’t care what happened. I only knew he was soothing the throbbing ache.
“Sawyer,” I whispered as my head fell back against the door with a thump. “Ah, God.”
I’d never let anyone in my personal space this way, but damn if I could stop him. The sensations that spread through me as he feasted on my sensitive flesh were beyond amazing. I found myself whining like a little bitch and begging with my moans for him to keep going.
My fingers moved into his hair, holding him to my body. Lifting my leg onto his shoulder, he opened me to him as he continuously licked and sucked, sending my body into a frenzied state.
“Yes. Oh my God, Sawyer, yes. What are you doing to me? I can’t …”
He didn’t answer.
Instead, he pushed a single finger into me and slowly began to work it in and out. My knees began to shake, the door the only thing holding me up, and I panted as the sensation of release slowly began to move over me.
Sliding a second finger into me, he worked back and forth and in and out. His tongue twirling my hardened nub before softly sucking, and I was done.
Guess who can't resist a story about a football playing hero or a bad boy? That'd be me. Put those two things together and the book with those features immediately moves to the top of my reading list. I was so eager to read Sacked I was almost bouncing with excitement and was able to rationalize staying up until the wee hours of the morning reading it.
Sawyer Reed is a douche bag. He knows he's talented both on and off the field and can have what he wants. Of course he's gotten bored with that and when Gretchen catches his eye in class one day, instead of making smoochy faces at him she makes a funny face and just like that she's on his radar. Sawyer isn't going to stop until he's had her. I had mixed feelings about Sawyer. On one hand, I didn't like how rude and unfeeling he could be, while on the other the nice things he did for no recognition made my heart melt. I liked how he was determined to succeed. He was an unrepentant manwhore and I didn't like how he reverted to his old ways at the drop of a hat.
Of course Gretchen is more than just a hot girl who loves football and can't stand Sawyer, she's got an agenda of her own. I also had mixed feelings about her. She's smart, funny, loves football like I do, and her family. However, she has secrets about those she cares for and even a reason as to why she wants to get close to Sawyer. Of course she didn't expect to feel anything for him other than disdain which puts her in a quandary. I didn't like the way she handled the secrets she was keeping for others. I really believe she should have acted otherwise with the information she had. Perhaps the outcomes of those situations might have been different.
While the scenes between Sawyer and Gretchen are as hot as expected, I wasn't expecting the emotional intensity that came with the book. There are some topics that will hit you in the heartstrings. I will admit to crying at the end of the book. Of course I'm an emotional reader so that's no surprise. Over all I enjoyed reading this book. It's my first Tabatha Vargo novel and I look forward to reading more from her. While this book may seem like the quintessential new adult sports romance, it's not, and has a flair of its own.
