THE MRS. DEGREE
Release Date: May 3
From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Sara Ney comes a new series about strong, single girls falling in love: accidentally.
I never thought I would get pregnant in college.
When I did, I thought leaving Jack Jennings was doing him a giant favor—he had a bright future ahead of him as a football star—the last thing he needed was me and a baby standing in his way of his dreams.
Honestly? I figured he would eventually forget about me.
I would raise our child in secret and watch Jack on television, and the pain of what I’d done to him would heal.
The last person I expected to see on my brothers doorstep seven years later was Jack; obviously, or I wouldn’t have answered it.
A superstitious athlete, dreams were keeping him awake at night that were preventing him from excelling on the field—dreams he was hoping I could make…disappear.
He looked so good. So much older.
Turns out, he hadn’t forgotten about me either, and he hadn’t put our past behind him.

Character development: 😳☺️🤫😍🥰
The heroine: Penelope Halbrook – a single mother trying to raise her daughter, Skipper as best she can. She has a full time job and is as harried in the morning as any single mother. She has a bit of trouble making ends meet, but her former pro football player brother bought two houses side-by-side for them to live in and helps her out quite a bit.
The Hero: Jack Jennings (a.k.a. Skip) – A professional football player, he is as superstitious as any professional athlete has ever been. He has a pre-game ritual on the day of each game and follows the same routine every time he has a game. However, all the sudden he has dreams Penelope Holbrook on the brain which has been messing up his ritual and his game.
The Story: While in town for a game, Jack looks up Penelope thinking that meeting with her will get her out of his mind once and for all and he will get his game back where it should be. Penelope and he dated in college and seemed to be in love until she completely ghosted and blocked him.
Sara Ney is one of my favorite authors and she does sports romance so well. It is one of my favorite tropes and Sara’s books are always enjoyable. The secret baby trope is also one I love on occasion and this was a good one. When a woman keeps a child secret from the father, it is a serious thing and when the father finds out, he is well within his rights to be angry. That was acknowledged and both parties handled it all with the utmost maturity in this book. I thought it was done very well.
The romance was great in this book also. Jack and Penn spend some time getting to know each other again which is nice. I also really enjoyed the supporting characters, including their daughter skipper, Jack’s friend and agent Elias (who will be the main character in the next book), and Penn’s brother Davis and his girlfriend Juliet from The Player Hater, and I can’t forget Jack’s dog Kevin.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
