Lissa's Review: Jock Row (Jock Hard #1) by Sara Ney
REVIEWER PURCHASE PUBLISHER: Audible Studios
NARRATOR: Ava Erickson & Josh Goodman RELEASED: September 25, 2018 GENRE: NEW ADULT, CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE LENGTH: 8 hours and 54 minutes FORMAT: EBOOK, AUDIBLE, PAPERBACK
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.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
It had been a while since I listened to an audiobook, I don’t commute anymore. I only have to go 10 min away. I thought I didn’t have time to listen. So while looking through all my audiobooks. I picked Jock Row, and I know that Sara writes some good romance, ones that have the witty banter and the steamy romance we all love. Scarlett isn’t your normal Heroine. She’s smart, witty, and has a goal in life. Never giving in to the usual College rituals, that’s how she meets Sterling (love that name). He’s a little over the College parties and the groupies. So when he meets Scarlett, she’s a whole new territory. I loved how they got to know each other, and it was slow but not too slow. It had a great pace. There’s an innocence while they are getting to know each other — their not quick, into the sheets. For a good reason, Scarlett isn’t just giving it up for anyone. And Sterling isn’t sure what's going on with him and the feelings that grow between them both. I loved the narrators; they were great. Great narrators, make a story even better. Overall, Five Boundless Stars.
