This college jock is a total player. He’s used to getting who and what he wants. Until her. . . 

Katrina
The hottest guy on campus won’t stop asking me out. I know that sounds like a good problem to have, but this guy… this guy has no idea how complicated my life is trying to juggle being a single mom and college student.
Every Thursday, he shows up at the café where I work. His cheesy pickup lines and arrogance should have me completely annoyed. I’m not. I can’t say yes, but Thursday is my favorite day of the week.

Joel
The hottest girl on campus won’t go out with me. I know, I know, that sounds presumptuous, but this girl… this girl has gotten under my skin, and I can’t seem to walk away.
Every Thursday, I show up at the café where she works. She’s fed me every excuse in the book. I should give up and bang one of the many girls blowing up my phone. I’m not. Even when she says no, Thursday is my favorite day of the week.

Pacing of a story can be everything. And I wasn’t pacing getting to the plot, the secret, and the thick of it. Not Joel’s girth… the other thick of it.

Hero is the epitome of playah, but heroine brings him to his knees pretty damn quick in this Smart Jocks books. Proving that he actually IS a smart jock. Jenshak perfected the right dose of douchebag level with maturity in this swoony hero.

And back to the pacing. You won’t find yourself pacing to get the twist and to get through the angst.

Rebecca Jenkshak quite literally nailed perfection on dis one.
