Audiobook Review: Jock Row (Jock Hard, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jock Row by Sara Ney

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Scarlett is always the sensible one: The sober driver. The planner. The one holding your hair back while you’re worshiping the porcelain gods. 

Week-after-week, she visits Jock Row with her friends—the university’s hottest party scene and breeding ground for student athletes. And if keeping her friends out of trouble, and guys out of their pants, was a sport, she’d be the star athlete.

Being a well known jock-blocker gets her noticed for all the wrong reasons; just like that, she’s banned from Jock Row. NO GUY WANTS A GIRL AROUND WHO KEEPS THEIR JOCK FRIENDS FROM GETTING LAID.

“Rowdy” Wade is the hot shot short-stop for the university’s baseball team—and the unlucky bastard who drew the short straw: keep little Miss Goody Two-Shoes out of the Baseball House. 

But week-after-week Scarlett returns, determined to get inside.

The heroine: Scarlett – She goes to a party on Jock Row and when some baseball jocks start giving her friends lines and lies, she calls them on it and makes fun of them which angers them. They have the team captain remove her from the party.

The Hero(es): “Rowdy” Wade – He is a baseball player who draws the short straw and has to remove the “cock-blocker” from the party at the baseball house. He is arrogant yet also intelligent and he refuses to let Scarlett back into the party even if he has to stay outside with her.

The Story: Scarlett takes a shine to Rowdy and comes back with her friends to the next party kind of hoping she would be barred from the party again with the same jailer keeping her outside. Wade is told as soon as she arrives and stays outside with her, telling her she is still not allowed to party.

The first half of the book has the two main characters exchanging banter back and forth on the front steps of the baseball house during parties. I kind of like it when the main characters actually attend parties or do things other than just talk between the two of them. That would be awesome in a real romance but it got a bit boring reading it. The story got better, but will deduct some because of this.

The two main characters did have chemistry and there were some great scenes. I did love their games (Never have I Ever, This or That, etc…). It was especially funny when they were trying to get each other drunk.
