Review: Gasping for Air (Game Day #2) by T.S. McKinney
Gasping for Air - T.S. McKinney

 

Sometimes you read a book that's just got all the perfect ingredients.
This was one of them.

The perfect amount of sassiness, hurt & comfort. It ticked all my happy and unhappy boxes.

I loved Tank (Trystan) already in this first installment Touchdown and I was overly excited he would get his own book.

Tank came on a bit stalkerish. He was determined to win the swimmer Dakota over. He attended swim meetings just for one glimpse of Dakota in his speedoo's. He brought him breakfast when he thought Dakota wasn't taking care of himself. Basically he was driving Dakota nuts with this attention. Dakota couldn't do what Tank wanted from him, he wasn't ready for a relationship. He was too depressed to have any relationship with anyone at all. All he did was attend his classes and swim practice...

But Trystan pursued and pursued..

I’m trouble, babe. I’m arrogant, spoiled, self-centered, borderline bully but in a really cute way, and I’m very kinky.

Trystan gets his way and convinces Dakota to move in with him. They agree on having this physical relationship. But will this ever be enough for Trystan? He already feels this connection he has with Dakota is different from any hook-up he had.

I must say, I loved their physical relationship. They both liked it hard, dirty and messy.

“You ready for this, Guppy? It’s going to be one wild ride.”

“I’ve told you before, you can’t give me more than I can take. But I appreciate your effort. Now, let’s see what that bad boy machine can do to this bad boy body."

 

Now this seems like a very light read, full of humor but it was NOT. Dakota is living with this secret. Not until 80% we really understand what happened to him. The scenes following were quite grafic so beware....

And then the epilogue. Wants me want to read it all over again.

 

He’d been fucking wrong about the most important thing on my mind at the moment - the swim pants didn’t make his ass look flat.

Hell, no matter what he had on his beautiful body, when I looked at him, I was gasping for air.



*HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Stunner
Talk British to Me - Robin Bielman

Teague is having quite the year.  Moving to a new city, getting a new job, and being pursued by a hottie.  Honest almost to a fault, people will walk over her if she's not careful.  This includes her new boss.

 

Mateo is glad to be friends with Teague.  He knows she is the forever kind.  He cannot be in a committed relationship right now, or his career will be crushed.  So he settles.  Scared of his secrets coming to light, he makes the most of his friendship with the best friend he has had in some time.

 

Sexy and sweet, this book moves at a good pace and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.  There is so many surprises inside, this book is worth the read.  Glad to have the humor to break up the heart crushing pieces, this story kept me turning the page!  I loved it and have to give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Him by Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen
Him - Elle Kennedy,Sarina Bowen

Charming and well-written, but too much angst and not enough hockey. The best part was coaching at the camp in Lake Placid.

Book Theme Song

Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding --Love the look and feel of this lyric video…and I also, feel like I could totally hear Hannah singing this to Garrett♫

 

 

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜

5/5 STARS

A+

 

 

My Thoughts

 

The feels are what make this story so good, from the crazy, funny one-liners to the all consuming chemistry between Garrett and Hannah, it's just fantastic.  Everything felt real and believable.  And, most of all…not cheesy.   Seriously, the New Adult genre is just feeling overdone and boring to me lately, unless an Author can pull off the right kind of feels.  Now, if I could only get them to quit referring to the word sex as a body part.  I'd be completely happy.

 

 

 

My tiny little deduction on the Ending is, because I thought the final conflict would play out differently than it did, and I guess I was a little disappointed.  Really no biggie, because the chemistry of the characters more than made up for it.

 

 

Ratings Breakdown

 

Plot:  5/5
