Story: I really liked the fact that this wasn’t a short read. It is well over three hundred pages. I also really loved the build up of the dialogue and story arc. I was fully expecting a lot of angst and misinterpretations. That didn’t really happen at all. At least not in the way that you would think it would happen. Tasha took off so much during situations that she could have given Julia Roberts in Runaway Bride a run for her money, but that’s something else entirely. It was actually a nice comic relief in the story. I find that I really like sports types romances. Which fascinates me. There’s a high heat level in this book, but in a good way. It doesn’t overrun the story itself at all.

Characters: At first, I really didn’t like Tasha at all. She gave off vibes like she was kind of a bully. At least in her blog. However, I got to know her as a person and realized that was just kind of like a wall she wielded to keep herself safe. I really liked Logan sometimes. I mean I liked his character and his work ethics. There were just times his behaviors and attitude baffled me. I really liked Bryce but didn’t get to see enough of him. I’m looking forward to his story in book two!!!!

Critiques: In my opinion, there’s a bit of a plot hole in this book. At the end of a chapter, something happens. It’s in Logan’s point of view. I can’t remember which chapter. Somebody comes up to him about something that happened. His thought as the chapter ends is basically a “What now?” kind of thing. However, nothing ever comes of it. You don’t find out what he finds out.

Final Thoughts: I really enjoyed this story a lot more than I thought it would. I was also very impressed with the page amount. I love short books as much as the next person, but I really love longer books more. There is a lot of heat in this for those who don’t care much for spice. I’m not a huge fan of it myself, but I don’t mind it. As long as it doesn’t completely overpower the story overall. This one doesn’t at all. This author also has a pretty amazing writing style. It should also be noted that this author is Australian and her spelling is different than we Americans are used to. Anyway, I definitely recommend this book fully!
