He’s a football god.
She’s the daughter of a Texas senator.
Their chemistry is like oil and water.
My name is Ryker James. I hate when people tell me what to do. I’m cocky, ornery, and I take things when I want them. Caring isn’t in my vocabulary unless it’s related to football or my family, and I just lost my entire family in a blink of an eye.
Now all I have is football. The problem is the misery, the drinking, and the parties have more appeal to me. But Lakemont University wants that championship. Fans want to see wins on the scoreboard, and my teammates salivate to crush our opponents every game. Yet the only pass I might be throwing is at the auburn-haired girl who waltzes into my life.
She’s fire. I’m ice. A combination that doesn’t work.
So let the games begin.
My name is Haven Hale, and I’ve been tucked away in a boarding school most of my life. Now I’m a big-time college girl, and all I see is freedom in front of me. But first, I have to agree to my father’s demands—no media attention and no sororities. If I can follow those two edicts, then college life should be a breeze.
Until one close encounter with Ryker James, and Father Dearest has changed the game. Stay away from the big, bad quarterback, or face my father’s wrath. There’s only one problem. I can’t help who I’m attracted to.
And Ryker James is a magnet, built to attract any female, constructed to make any girl’s heart sputter, and my heart is beating off the charts.
But it’s time to choose between the devil I know and the one I don’t.
This author constantly surprises me with her books! This is definitely a favorite for me!! I love those guys who are prickly on the outside, but once the right girl gets past that, he’s full of feelings and emotion!!
Ryker is exactly that kind of guy!! When he meets Haven, he thinks she is beautiful and he’s drawn to her, but he feels they’re not right for each other. “She’s fire. I’m ice. A combination that doesn’t work.” But there is more in the way of them being together than he realizes!
Haven has had a lonely upbringing since her mother died. She has been tucked away in boarding schools and longed for a relationship with her father. Now she’s at college and has more freedom than she’s ever had. When she meets Ryker she thinks he’s gorgeous, but she also thinks he’s a total jerk!
The characters were awesome!!! Including the side characters!! I loved the romance! *swoon* I was so wrapped up in this couple!! The emotion had me bawling my eyes out, and I did what I could to keep my kindle dry. This is such a wonderful love story, and more! You don’t want to miss it!!!
