“But we all love seeing a bad boy fall hard for a girl and change his ways and Jack did just that. ” ~Under the Covers

I’ve had this book on my Kindle app for months now, so I decided to do pick this up on a whim after finishing up an erotic read to give myself a quick mental scrub.  I love sports romances but I do have some problems with the immature characters on some new adult books.

And that’s a bit of what happened with me here.  This story started out with great potential but then some things started getting to me.  Yeah, mainly the heroine, Cassie.  She was just my type of girl at the very beginning, spunky and feisty, and even though she was drooling for the ho jock chasing after her she stood her ground and didn’t give in because of his bad boy reputation.  But then she would do something that showed a complete lack of common sense and just made me want to pull my hair out!

But we all love seeing a bad boy fall hard for a girl and change his ways and Jack did just that.  Although I don’t personally love the instant change, I do love the fact that he didn’t fight his feelings for Cassie.  He knew he wanted her and needed her and he went for it.  And yeah, he made mistakes but at the end of the day he showed his love for Cassie every step of the way.  I know some people consider Jack a jerk, but I think he’s a sweetheart, a bit lost but he’s a good guy.

You know me with my OCD, after the rollercoaster events at the end of this book, I have to continue reading the series and find out what happens next.  I’m hoping that after all that’s happened, Cassie has been able to grow a bit and Jack will find that security to just be and enjoy.

About J. Sterling

got fired from my last job. It's true. I know you're sitting there thinking "Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone as amazing and awesome as you???" And i'd love to give you a good reason, but the truth is- being this awesome is clearly very scary to other less awesome people.

So I said screw them and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing books that mean something to me is a million times better than working for my ass off for someone who doesn't really care about anything other than the bottom line.

My soul feels more satisfied.
My heart, more full.

So thank you for reading, loving and recommending the stories I write.
I appreciate it more than you know. 🙂
