World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 🧐🤨🙄🤤😘
The Hero: Kip (a.k.a. Sasquatch) – a 6’4”, well built rugby player from a wealthy background. He wants to focus on school and rugby so he hides behind long hair and a beard. He is unapproachable and doesn’t want any entanglements.
The heroine: Teddy – She is a doormat for her friends. She comes from a single parent household where her mom had to work two jobs to get by. Teddy wants nothing more than to be stable and not have worry about money.
The Story: Teddy goes to a party on Jock Row with her roommate and friends, she ends up going to get them beers since her friends use her any chance they get. While waiting around the keg, Kip sees her from his position against the wall and the next weekend at another rugby party he sees her again, doing the same thing. He feels the need to talk to her.
When a fight breaks out, Kip helps Teddy out of the party and when she finds that her “Friend” is bringing a guy home to their shared one bedroom apartment. Kip offers to let her stay at his place and they get to talking. He tells her that she will never get a boyfriend the way she has been at parties and offers to be her “Hairy Godmother” and give her tips to get a guy.
This book is told in dual points of view and is narrated by Chelsea Hatfield and Jacob Morgan. This was dual narration where Jacob did the chapters in the male POV and Chelsea did the chapters in the female POV. I like these two narrators and really enjoy Sara Ney’s sports romance books. This was a terrific one. I loved that Kip is trying to keep his wealth on the DL and that Teddy is a shy girl finding her voice.
This had everything I love about the new adult sports romance. A hot guy with lots of muscles (even though his hotness was hidden by a lot of hair), college parties, snarky girls, and both main characters with backstories that get in the way. I also love that they become friends before anything happens between them. I really enjoyed the friendship and the romance between these two.
