“This is my fantasy, Princess Leia. Just listen.”
The Hero: Maverick – big man on Campus and football hero. Maverick was in a car accident a few years back and lost his mother and his sister got a traumatic brain injury and needs full time care.
The heroine: Delaney – lost both parents in an accident when she was young, she was raised by her grandmother. She is a studious girl who focuses on her grades and rarely parties. She recently broke up with her football player boyfriend when he cheated.
The Love Story: Maverick and Delaney meet at the University bonfire at the beginning of their freshman year. Though he came (and left) with a pair of twins, he noticed Delaney and kissed her after telling her the story about how it is said that the first person you kiss at your Freshman bonfire is the one who you will never forget.
Two years after the pair first meets and after Delaney breaks up with her boyfriend Alex who cheats on her, they start hanging out together. Delaney has also been texting some unknown guy that she has put in her phone as He-man after their first conversation. She doesn’t know which one she likes better.
The audio on this book is great. The male voice is deep which I like and I have heard this woman before. I like her, she doesn’t have one of those angsty girly voices or one of those socialite uppity type voices either. I liked both the story and the narration.
The side story about Maverick’s troubles at home with an alcoholic father who is supposed to take care of his handicapped sister makes you really like Maverick. I love sports romance and this one the Hero was so likable, other than the twins thing at the beginning, he was a really good guy!
