Melissa's Review:

I realized I've been lacking books with athletic main characters, so I had to correct that by grabbing this freebie. The cover might have helped make my decision as well, look at those abs.

Hindley Hagen is a young up and coming attorney. She's dragged along to celebrate her stepsister's bachelorette party at a club and has a bit too much to drink. And when I say a bit too much, I mean she gets plastered and strangers have to come to her rescue since her stepsister is evil. Lucky for her, a guy stuffs her in a cab and makes sure she gets home safely. I like Rory's character immediately, he has that protective, yet super sweet guy feel. He's also not afraid to stand up for what he believes in which made me smile in several instances. During those instances I was really disliking Hindley's family, which made me think a bit less of her for allowing that type of behavior to go on.

The two part ways after the wedding, and I was wondering how they'd wind up together again. I was happy to see Rory was in negotiations for his skateboarder/X Games contract and Hindley would be the one to help. We get a peek at both do their jobs, which was nice. Hindley even gets to see Rory on his skateboard which were nice touches to the book. In the end I think Rory Gregor stole the show, he has that badboy feel, but he's super sweet and caring. I kept waiting for the instance he'd turn into the bad boy with an attitude but it never really came. He was always pretty sweet, with a protective edge. The book itself was pretty good and I'd read book two to see what happens next. I'd recommend this if you're looking for an atheletic sweet guy.

  1. It seems to me this athletic sweet guy is calling for attention . . . That means I'll just have to give it to him! ;) I'm really glad it worked for you Melissa, I think it could work for me as well.

  5. He was a Skater Boy, she said see you later boy, he wasn't good enough for her...

    I can't help it, this book's asking for it.

    The leads are an unconventional couple, it's always intriguing to read how matches like this would work.
