College senior, Lexi Thompson, finds herself in a relationship to be wed to the university’s star baseball pitcher, Collin Norris. Collin’s hot, but his lack of spark has Lexi thinking twice before she says ‘I Do’. When she’s forced to tutor bad boy football quarterback, Raven Davenport, she soon discovers all the things she’s missing in her relationship with Collin. Will she succumb to the temptations enticing her, or will Collin be able to convince his sweet, innocent fiancée that his love for her is genuine despite his lack of affection?
Ages : 17+ for mature content and sexual situations
First off, two of my favorite sports are in here, baseball and football. Second, The Raven. Third, such a wonderful story that I couldn't put it down. I love CM Doporto's writing, and I will keep reading as long as she keeps writing.
Can this be happening?
Lexi Thompson and Collin Norris are engaged basically because their parents want them to be. She is waiting for a sign that he really loves her and wants to be married to her. Every time she asks him to show that he cares, he moves way from her or shuns her somehow.
Lexi starts tutoring Raven Davenport so he can be the football star for the school. He needs help with his writing. Lexi can do that in her sleep. She also needs a distraction from Collin. He still cannot seem to show he cares.
Collin is involved in sports also. He plays baseball with her brother. Raven is the star for the whole school. In Texas, football matters. She teaches him what he needs to know.
Lexi starts to have thoughts about Raven. It shows her what she and Collin should have. She practically begs Collin to notice her and sat something and all she gets is the silent treatment and glares for her trouble.
I liked that this book was very honest and showed the character development as it was happening. The banter was good. The story very real.
The writing was "meh" at best
I almost stopped reading this book. I expected more in a Part 1 of 3 series type book. There were excessive typos, and the language of the author was amateur at best. I just felt like there wasn't much going on and the story took forever to develop. I gave it a shot since a friend recommended it. I am only giving this book a 3 because I really liked what the story finally developed into in Book 3. Granted, I did have to suffer thru half of Book 2 where things FINALLY started to pick.
