If you loved “She’s All That”, you’ll love this book. A jock who seems like he has it all going for him. A nerdy virgin who loves to read and write romance rather than experience it. And a bet that kicks it all off.
Ryker Voss is the star quarterback for Waylon University. He gets the girls, the grades and whatever else he wants. Or so it seems. All Ryker really wants is for someone to care about him. The real him.
Penelope Bloom knows who Ryker is. After all, she wrote a scathing article in the college paper on the incident he was part of last semester. And she’s not a fan. But why does she keep using him as the hero in all her romance stories?
Ryker’s football teammates are big into betting. Anything you can place bets on, they’re in. But this is one bet Ryker has no interest in taking.
A sweet college romance, with some twists and turns, and some cute, swoony parts. I enjoyed how Ryker and Penelope’s relationship developed and how both characters grew throughout the course of the book. It did read a little too close to the plot of the above-mentioned movie for there to be any surprises for me to get to. But really, my biggest issue was that the blurb doesn’t match the story. All in all, though, fans of sports romance, new adult, and HEAs will enjoy this book.
