I’ve spent years hiding in the shadows.
He’s spent his whole life chasing the bright lights of the NBA.
We have nothing in common, except for the fact our friends ditched us for spring break.
I have a bucket list for my senior year at Valley U.
He’s the only person I know on campus.
I’m ready to start checking things off my list.
Frat party: Check.
TP the baseball house: Check.
Goat yoga: Check.
Skinny dipping: Check.
Falling for Zeke Sweets, Valley U’s MVP: Not going to happen.
I can’t make out her form until I’m halfway down to the water. She sits on the dock, feet dangling above the water. She’s so fucking beautiful and innocent and I want to ruin her and worship her all at the same time. I’m not going to do either of those things, though. I’m going to stick to the path. The path doesn’t include dating. The path doesn’t even include fun most days and Gabby deserves days that are all about fun.
She turns her head as I get closer and there’s that big Gabby smile pointed right at me. “Hey.”
“Hey, yourself. Whatcha doing down here all alone?”
“I thought we could cross skinny dipping off both our lists.”
My brows raise. “What about your tattoo?”
She shrugs. “It’s been a week. I’m willing to risk a quick dip if you are.”
I rub a hand over my chin. I’m not ashamed of my body, but I’d also prefer not to have my black ass photographed if one of my teammates happen to stumble upon us. Last year one of the sophomores got drunk at a party and passed out naked in the bathroom. I have no idea why he was naked in there, but the photos of his hairy ass were everywhere. My ass is baby smooth and awesome, but I still don’t want it on display.
“Well, come on before someone sees us.” She’s unbuttoning her shorts and pushing them down while I stand there gawking. The sight of her bare legs puts me in motion. Just not a part of me I want in motion right now. I turn around, give my dick a little pep talk that includes promises I won’t be a celibate asshole forever, and then undress to my boxers.
“You decent?” I ask over my shoulder.
“No. Oh my God, don’t look.” She laughs, I hear her footsteps on the dock and then a splash. A few seconds later, she calls, “Your turn.”
I push my boxers down and then hold my hands over my junk, semi-erect still because promises be damned, and take two large steps before jumping in beside her. Her happy squeals direct my entry into the lake as I clear the water from my eyes. We’re treading water buck naked not two feet from one another. It’s a little trippy. I haven’t spent time with a girl naked like this in… well forever. If I’m naked and this close to a girl, it’s for one purpose and though I’m a gentleman, of course, it’s not about anything but carnal desires being met. Thrusts and grunts and release.
I don’t think it would be like that with Gabby. No, I know it wouldn’t be like that, which is another reason it can’t happen.
“So now what?” she asks, suddenly looking a little nervous.
“Far as I know, this is all there is to it. How do you feel?”
“Naked.” She laughs. “But also like a rebel.”
She splashes water at me playfully and I do it right back.
“Think anyone can see us?”
I shrug. “Maybe. Do you want them to see you?”
“God, no,” she says too fast. The excitement in her eyes is a dead giveaway. I think Gabby likes the thrill, the possibility of being caught, and God help me because I want nothing more than to keep her safe while she explores every sordid fantasy.
The Tip-Off by Rebecca Jenshak is the third book in the Smart Jocks series, a New Adult Sports Romance series. This is the first book I have read by the author , I quickly backtracked and read the first two books in the series. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed all three books. The Tip-Off can easily be read as a stand alone novel but has so much more flavoring after reading the first two books in the series. The series is based on the solidity of coed friendships as well as the camaraderie of teammates.
Zac and Gabby have been screaming for their own book and Rebecca has delivered. This adorable couple will capture the heart. Zac has been focused on going pro in basketball all through his college career. His laser focus has left little time for light hearted fun and romance until he met Gabby. Gabby is the kind of girl who values friendship, love, and life. She has had her own set of hoops to conquer and jump through to reach her personal agenda. Together these two find there is more to life than specific goals or tasks. Together they find their true hearts.
The thing I loved most about this book was perspective. Two individuals growing beyond the limitations they set for themselves. Together they found how to win the best game of all- the game of a life filled with love.
This was a sweet, somewhat predictable romance that completely entertained me in the best possible way. I would highly recommend the Smart Jock Series. The Tip-Off was my favorite book in the series.
