Narrated by Teddy Hamilton & Rose Dioro, featuring Jacob Morgan!
A bet turned into a disaster.
Sebastian Weaver is the star quarterback and the college’s heartthrob.
Rich. Handsome. Bastard.
Everyone’s attention flocked toward him and all the girls dreamed to be with him.
At least, not until he made a move on me.
See, I thought I was stronger than Sebastian’s charms.
I thought I could survive being his target.
I thought wrong.
Little did I know that he will make my most twisted fantasies come true.
Fantasies I didn’t know existed…

Red Thorns by Rina Kent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The quarterback and the cheerleader get kinky!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎
Character development: 👨🏻👱🏻♀🧔🏻👩🏻👩🏼🦰
The heroine: Naomi – she is a bit anti-social, but joined the cheerleading squad at her college because her mom wanted her to. Her mom is a wealthy fashion designer and she never met her father.
The Hero(es): Sebastian – his Grandfather is a a senator and his grandparents raised him. They expect him to take up the family mantle and go into politics like his Grandfather. Sebastian is the star quarterback at the college.
The Story: Naomi has had a small harmless crush on Sebastian since high school and after he accidentally tackles her on the sidelines, he starts showing interest in her. He then accepts a bet from his friend Reina that has to do with Naomi.
The two main characters have a dark side and pretty specific kinks and they both have family issues. Naomi wants to meet her father, but her Mom won’t give her any information on him. Sebastian is living under the expectations of his extremely snobbish and cruel grandparents.
This was actually a very good story despite the often used tropes and the predictability of some of the events. For example, the book begins with Naomi starting up a pen-pal relationship, with someone who wrote to her in high school. I would be surprised if she doesn’t meet him and/or find out his real identity at some point and I can bet who it is. There are also mean girls at the school who antagonize Naomi at every opportunity.
I really liked both of the characters, especially the sizzling chemistry between them. I also liked the Japanese themes in the story, since Naomi was half Japanese. There was a bunch of stuff about their mutual love of anime, Sebastian even had Japanese symbols Tattooed on his body. It is nice to see some diversity in romance novels.
