Synopsis

Priscilla Winslow has a mouth that spits fiery sarcasm faster than I can throw a touchdown. But I’ve wanted her ever since I saw her in that Bo Peep outfit on Halloween. Yep, I’m a sheep who will follow that little hottie anywhere. There’s one problem…she hates me. Just because we ended up in jail and quite possibly ruined both our futures…

They’re changing the rules…

College Quarterback Preston Rush is living the dream. He’s leading his team to the National Championship and days away from earning a ‘first round draft pick’ label. When he meets Little Bo Peep at a Halloween party, he thinks he’s scored big. Instead, he wakes up in a jail cell with the corseted beauty. Because of him, she’s in trouble and when he discovers her true identity, he realizes, his nightmare is just beginning.

The always shooting-for-perfection Priscilla Winslow can’t believe her good deed has cost her a soccer career. Even though she knows it isn’t Preston’s fault, she can’t forgive him for the disaster that is her life. She just wishes her damn body would get the message. Every time she sees him, it’s all she can do not to kiss him.

When everything crashes down around him, Preston will have to decide if doing the right thing is worth losing it all.

Michel’s Review

Rush by Shae Ross is the perfect book for fans of sports romance and new adult romance.

Soccer vs. Football… what sport is more important.  According to the college alumni and administration, football takes precedence.  Football brings in the money.   Is it fair that other athletes and other sports take a back seat to the football team? It’s a question of ethics and fair practice.

When star soccer player Priscilla Winslow decides to step out and engage in some fun in her senior year of college, she never realized that it could jeopardize her academic and college soccer career.  Going to a Halloween party at a local bar with friends ends up being a very bad choice.  Not only is she dressed in a mortifying sexy Bo Peep costume, she is also engaged in a bar fight and arrested.  The culprit that caused her problems is Chewy, otherwise known as star quarterback, Preston Rush.

When Priscilla and Preston are arrested it could end their college sports careers.  The outcome is very different for each of them.  The incident is swept under the rug for Preston.  His place on the team is not in jeopardy.  The coaches, alumni, and administration are willing to look the other way.   Priscilla’s outcome is very different.  She is suspended from the soccer team right before their championship playoffs.  Her scholarship is in jeopardy.  She is no longer eligible to be a collegiate athlete.

Preston promises to help Priscilla out and testify at her hearing.  There are several parties that don’t want Preston testifying.  It could expose a multitude of problems for the football program and individual players that are breaking the rules.  It could ruin the entire football program.

Together Priscilla and Preston unravel the mystery behind the attack that led to the bar fight and arrest.  The secrets could ruin quite a few athletes, the school program, and administrator/ coach careers.

It is no longer an issue of what sport is more important.  It is a legal issue.

Priscilla and Preston not only come together as athletes, they also find love in the midst of the mess.

I thoroughly enjoyed Rush and would highly recommend it.

Release Blitz + Review + Giveaway : Pretty Smart Girls: Lace Up by Shae Ross

PSG RDL Banner

PrettySmartGirls_cover[3]Team Ryan

Ryan Rose and her fellow Spartans are finalists in a high-profile entrepreneurial competition. They’re competing for life-changing money and for their futures. They have a solid plan to win. All they need to do is trounce the competition: rich frat boys from an archrival university. Easy, right?

Team Jett

Jett Trebuchet’s first mistake was not realizing that Ryan and her friends were the competition. His second was expressing his unabashed confidence in his team’s ability to win. After all, everyone knows the only thing MSU does better than U of M is produce beautiful, easy women…oh, and he almost forgot to say “dumb.” And boy, does his team pay for that one.

Game On

As each side tries to game the other, something else seems to be getting in the way—attraction. Now Ryan and Jett must keep their teams from getting distracted by the opposite sex…and each other. All is not fair in love and war when it comes to winning this game.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Light spills down his lower half, illuminating the inverted V of his legs, planted in the middle of the passage as solid as Roman columns. My stomach twists. His shoulders and face remain in the shadows, but I’ve seen enough to know. It’s Jett. I could tell by the challenging look on his face earlier, he’s ready for round two—like a boxer bouncing up and down in the corner of the ring. I brush off my hands and start walking toward the cross-armed brick wall. A smile curls into the corners of my mouth. All right, frat boy. Bring it on.

As I draw closer, I see light cutting against the hollowed slope of his cheek. His lips are seamed into a tight line, and his eyes are a kaleidoscope of deep blues. Clearly I’ve struck a nerve with Mr. Perfect. I suppose he’s not used to a woman dealing him into the game and then trouncing him. My feet plant in front of him. I raise my chin and attempt to exude a calm confidence I do not feel.

3.5 star

Michel’s Review

Two teams from the same state but from rival universities competing for the highly coveted prize in a national entrepreneurial competition.  One team of men and one team of women.  Both teams have valid motives for wanting to win.  Will they do anything to get the prize?  Will they go against their morals to get ahead?  What happens when a huge dose of sexual chemistry and undeniable attraction comes into play?

It is a battle of the sexes.  A battle of wit.  A battle of the heart.  Can one team win the competition without destroying each other?

Pretty Smart Girls was a highly entertaining and witty romance.  It stepped outside of the usual New Adult themes and did away with the traditional type of angst portrayed in this genre.  All of the players were bitten by cupid.  How each couple dealt with their feelings while trying to compete against one another made this book more interesting.

The main couple in this book, Jett and Ryan, kept the readers intrigued.  Their verbal foreplay, witty reactions, and intellectual sparring was entertaining.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend this to other readers.
