She’s always played it safe…
College junior Lucy Washington abides by one rule—avoid risk at all costs. She’s cautious in every aspect of her life, from her health, to her mock trial team, to the boring guys she dates. When a brash, gorgeous jock walks into the campus coffee shop and turns his flirt on, Lucy is stunned by the force of attraction. For the first time ever, she’s willing to step out of her comfort zone, but can she really trust the guy who’s determined to sweep her off her feet?
He’s always played around…
Entering his last year of college eligibility, linebacker Matthew "Matty" Iverson has the team captaincy in his sights. And it’s his for the taking, if he can convince his quarterback Ace Anderson to give up the starting position. Luckily, Matty already has an edge—the hottie he’s lusting over just happens to be Ace’s childhood best friend. Getting Lucy on his side and in his bed? Hell yeah. Matty is more than confident he can have both, but when he falls hard for Lucy, it’s time for a new game plan: convince the woman of his dreams that she’s not sleeping with the enemy.
Jockblocked by Jen Frederick was a sweet sport romance novel. For a moment it brought back memories of Nathan and Haley from the tv show One Tree Hill back to my mind. And just like them, I immediately fell in love with Matty and Lucy.
This is book 2 in Ms. Frederick’s Gridiron series. After a talk with the team’s coach, linebacker, Matthew “Matty” Iverson is offered the team captain spot, if he can remain scandal free and if he can get the team’s current quarterback, Ace Anderson to give up his starting position so the coach can recruit a potential freshman to take his place. Matty is reluctant, unsure how he could influence Ace to do anything, but the coach doesn’t leave him much choice.
Luckily, he may have found some help convincing Ace to do what the coach wants…in the form of Ace’s childhood best friend, Lucy Watson, the girl he’s be lusting after. However, when emotions come into the mix and Matty begins to fall for Lucy, the story gets more interesting and he needs a whole new game plan.
This is a great story with engaging characters. Matty is so sweet and definitely book boyfriend material. Loved him. Lucy is a great heroine. Vulnerable, yet strong, and completely loyal to Ace and later to Matty. I also liked Hammer! Such a perfect supporting character and friend to Matty. Hope Ms. Frederick has a book about him.
Overall, I enjoyed every minute of this story and very much recommend. I can’t wait to read more from Jen Frederick.
