This book had potential as a feel good sport romance.
However there is a drama that gets a little too over the top that nearly derails everything literally.
Bentley is womanizer with a conscious. He knows that he has to be respectful or his mother would be after him. However he is still having a different woman in his bed until he crashes literally to Jolene.
Jolene is the opposite to Bentley. She still moping for her last boyfriend and doesn’t want to know Bentley.
Literally making a fool of herself with he ex until Bentley comes and saves the day
For a piece of fiction it had it good moments. These two were playing the cat and mouse game for most of the book. They were quick dates and missed opportunities that made these two endearing. But the drama which played out towards the end of the book was crazy. It’s fiction but it was over the top considering the rest of the novel and forced the side characters to take side and allow the leads to do the crazy things in the name of love.
It worked out but Bentley was the Big Baller on court, he proved to be a softer well rounded guy that needed to wake up from the new reality was in and return to the way he was brought up . Jolene was looking for a partner and family like his so it was good to see this work out. She just need to wake up from the past and let the present offer her a future that truly let her be herself.
Katrina Marie writes new adult romance and romcom. She lives in the Dallas area with her husband and two children. She loves all things magical, and if she’s not at one of her children’s events, you can find her staring at her screen coming up with her next story. She loves to curl up on the sofa and read until the wee hours of the night.
When Katrina Marie isn’t reading, or writing, you can find her binge-watching everything from the Gilmore Girls to The Umbrella Academy. She loves hanging out with friends (you know, when that was a thing we could do) and spending time with her family.
