Will I continue this series? Possibly…I'm torn…maybe I'll try a different book by her.
I would like to thank the Author for writing a story with the perfect blend of sexy stuff, angsty love, humor and some olympic inspired drama. Everything about this clicked with me. I loved it. That's why I'm so bummed, that the second book in the series, has so many reviews that are two stars or less...
Narration is excellently done by Amanda Dolan, she has a great voice for this genre of book…and she did an excellent English accent as well (at least from this American girls pov). Shaun Grindell did the male pov and he was good too, but I think I would of liked a more masculine voice for Freddie.
⇝Sex Factor⇜ Just the right amount of well written sexy scenes…
I read 7 books in January. I'm so proud of myself that I stayed focused and tried to read everyday. There were a couple books that I did have to put down, but I'm happy I did. Leaving books that aren't working for me is something I promised to do in 2017 and obviously with 7 books read it's working.

It was a good month and in February I'm expecting to read more and hopefully read more 5 and 4 star reads.
I really enjoyed this one! Dean was a lot deeper than I gave him credit for in previous books. Allie's character was perfect for him and I'm glad they got together.
I don't know if Coach O'Shea's part in the story was really that necessary. And then when Miranda came into play? It just didn't move the story along that much in my opinion.
But, beyond that I really loved the story and would have loved to have more of an epilogue for them. I definitely want to know what happens to them in the future. I've really enjoyed this series thus far. Even when I don't think I have much interest in the characters, I think that the author does an amazing job of pulling me in and making me care about them.
I listened to this one audio and read the kindle edition (whispersync deals are my new addiction), and I thought the narrator's did a decent job.
I will definitely be continuing on with this series. Especially with the bombshell Tucker delivered at the end of this book. There's no way I could stay away!
