World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌍
Character development: 😤😥😊🤩
The heroine: Sunny Blaine – at 17 she ran away from her father, stealing his car and money to go. When she swerved on a deserted road and the guard rail gave way, she ended up in a lake and nearly drowned until a real life Hero rescued her. Though she ran into the woods before the ambulance got there since she didn’t want to be sent back to her father.
The Hero: Max Kent – He is a senior at Leland University and the team quarterback who doesn’t have a girlfriend, he is bothered by all the cleat chasers who have designs on him since he is set to go pro after his senior year ends. He hopes to win the Heisman trophy this year because it was one thing his ex-football player/sportscaster father never got.
The Story: Three years after the rescue in the woods, Sunny is renting a house and attending Leland University. She is not looking forward to her first class and seeing her jock ex-boyfriend, Bart. She has a rule about not dating athletes anymore, despite the fact that she rented the house across the street from the quarterback.
When Max is forced to give Sunny a ride to her class which he is also enrolled in, they discuss the fact that both of them have exes in the class and decide to fake a relationship to keep their exes off their backs and get back at them both for cheating. This was a cute story and I love Ilsa Madden-Mills books. There was plenty of drama and romance.
The book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narration was done by Yvonne Syn and Alastair Haynesbridge, both of which have pleasing voices. I thought Alastair might be British due to the name but they both have American accents. Alastair has a deep clear voice and Yvonne has a soft feminine voice which sounded age appropriate for Sunny.
