About this deal

I picked this book up because I was in a mood to read and discover more sports romance after watching the spectacular FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar. I was really excited for this book I meant hockey player and figure skater but in end it didn't deliver.

And though there’s little drama–at least until close to the end–that doesn’t mean the romance is shallow and meaningless. When he learns the truth about her, she’s happy that he seems to want to forge ahead and move their friendship towards a more intimate level.Rhett Rauthruss is having trouble adapting to single life after ending a six year relationship while Sienna doesn’t really know about dating in college since she’s spent most of it working on her figure skating. There are some heavy moments in this story that Rhett and Sienna go through, but I love how they navigate things together and with the help of their crew rooting for them together and as individuals. He instantly falls for her and she thinks he’s a player so there’s a bit of push and pull for a few pages and then she gives in when she finds out he’s only been with one other girl. He never really got jealous of her close male friend she spoke to often and I thought that was a nice change and it made me love Rhett all the more. The banter between them is fun and entertaining, and the great secondary characters add a lovely layer to their story as the all support each other and add comic relief to the story.

This series just keeps getting better and better- the writing sharper, the banter more endearing, the characters more complex and compelling, and this amazing crew of friends more charming. I don't want to give too much away as it is such an amazing story and needs to be experienced first hand. This is a hint to all of you who haven't read anything by her yet - pick up one book, and I mean anyone, and you will have a blast. Initially, she has the wrong idea about him, so she keeps putting him off, but soon realises that he really is a nice guy – not just nice, but super-hot, too!I’d be lying if I said the cover photo didn’t prompt me into signing up for an arc 😂 but once I’d read the blurb I knew I’d love it and I was right! With every passing page, I love the more- the way they’ve become this tight knit, supportive, and loving family- they show up for each other, care for each other, help each other be more themselves- be BETTER. Sienna barely resisted him, and her worries about him being a player who would hurt her felt very forced and also didn't amount to anything. They think they want different things, but when it heats up between them, there's no denying they have something in common--even if it's just for a night.

Well actually it turned into something big, but I cared so little and it didn't seem to matter much since throughout the whole book Rhett kept complaining about her. It had a lot of depth and emotion to it and some unexpected twists that kept me fully engrossed the whole story. Sierra - let me tell you about Sierra, this character is hands down my favorite character that Jenshak as written. This book is most definitely much heavier than the others- there is a gravitas in general to bother characters already given past pains both are working through - Rhett’s revolving around his ex.

I thought there would be some conflict with Rhett's ex-girlfriend Carrie, but even that turned into nothing. A warning though, towards the end the story takes a sharp turn and gets quite heavy so be aware of that before you dive into the story.

I spent a good 40 percent of this book just enjoying the banter and playfulness of all the characters in this series. Her books are usually low angst but just perfect for when you want a book to put a smile on your face throughout your reading. Ok so I think the readers of this series all were aware that Rhett is loyal AF, but now we get to experience him being loyal AF and a flipping squishy gummy bear falling in love. While she does have a heart condition, being with Rhett is exciting, but should she really get her hopes up and jump into something with school graduation looming?Oh and for my trope loving friends we have the hockey player and the ice skater you’ve all been craving since Netflix axed your favorite show. But Rebecca let’s his heart shine in this story- we get to see the real him- the best and worst of him, and I love this man. He was always one of my favourites; quiet and mysterious, and I was so looking forward to finally reading Rhetts book and finding out more about him. He’s fresh off a long-term, long-distance relationship and ready to make the most of what’s left of college.
