The heroine: Charlie Fontaine – works on the Rushmore college newspaper with her best friend Blake, whom she dated in high school. They work much better as best friends since there was no chemistry between them. She is big into LARPing with her friends and younger brother.
The Hero: Troy Alexander – quarterback of the Rushmore Rebels, he feels responsible for the death of his brother and is focused on protecting his shy sister Jane from his mother who tends to break her down whenever she talks to Jane. Troy’s head just hasn’t been in the game lately and his performance on the field has suffered.
The Story: When Charlie is sent to interview Troy for the paper, she asks the tough questions. Troy isn’t about to tell her his real reasons for not playing up to his usual standards, and walks out on the interview. Charlie hands in a scathing interview and the prank wars begin from there.
Teddy Hamilton and Michelle Sparks do the narration on this book that is told in dual points of view via dual narration. Teddy Hamilton is a terrific narrator who shows emotion and sarcasm well through his gravelly voice. Michelle Sparks has a clear feminine, youthful sounding voice which matches the spunky Charlie very well.
I liked that both of these characters care about their siblings, grandparents and friends so much. That makes you like them from the start, despite their actions toward each other which are not the nicest. The romance is good, the pranks are fun and the book is steamy in parts but not too smutty. This was a fun new adult sports romance.
