Summary

Mascen Wade, star pitcher of the Aldridge University baseball team, is a lot of things.

Rich. Hotter than sin. The campus’ reigning bad boy.

We knew each other once upon a time, but even if I’m named after a princess, it doesn’t mean my life is a fairy tale. My plan is to keep my head down, get my degree, and leave this town. But the moment Mascen Wade recognizes me, all my carefully laid plans come crumbling down. He’s decided he wants to make my life a living hell, but I’m not so easy to push around. I won’t put up with his bully playground antics.

It's just too bad that I’ve never been able to resist him.

Much about nothing..

There wasn’t really any plot to the story. Everything that isn’t relevant was described in painful detail but when it came to the actual story there was basically nothing. The main characters didn’t even spend that much time together to be honest. It was just them thinking about nothing or talking to friends and family, again, about nothing.
Jacob Morgan and Erin Mallon were good as always.

Kind of the same College Story

Well written story but this is another college romance that I feel like I've read before. It was entertaining enough to keep me reading but also a typical friends to enemies to lovers. They started out as best friends as kids, separated during the childhood and come across each other in college. Star athlete who grew up rich felt abandoned by his best friend therefore hates her but not so much when he sees her again. Hates her but doesn't want her to be happy with anyone else. I don't mean to make lite of the storyline but that is the basic premise of the story.

College Bad Boy Romance

My first book from this author and I’ll be honest I was drawn to it because I’m a huge fan of Erin Mallon and Jacob Morgan. It was definitely an easy listen, Low angst but definitely had all the feels. I don’t think it was necessary to listen to the previous books to follow along, Rory and Mason’s Chemistry carried through the entire book. I wish there was more of an extended epilogue from this couple.

Narrators made it-

Could have used more something, I just couldn’t get into the the dynamic between H/h. Not sure what it was. But fabulous narration as always.

No Desire to Finish This

I usually don't leave a review before I finish a book, but I wanted to give potential buyers a fair warning. First of all, the female narrator can't do male voices, and it was distracting at first. Still, I hung in there because I thought the story had potential. However, I am five hours into a nine hour book, and there has only been one kiss... And even that was like pulling teeth!

I mean, I'm all for the build-up, don't get me wrong. But this is supposed to be a ROMANCE book. Don't make me wait until I'm over halfway through to get even one little crumb!

The story is interesting enough that I will hang in there just to see how it ends, but make no mistake, I am not impressed with this author, and I have no desire whatsoever to torture myself beyond this book. I will NOT be wasting credits on the rest of this series.

UPDATE: I now only have 2.5 hours left of this book and have decided to end the torture. *SPOILER ALERT* The leading man demands that our heroin goes home with him over Thanksgiving break. They have to stop at a hotel on the way, because it is such a long drive, and I had high hopes for a steamy hotel scene. But no such luck. It wasn't even relevant to the story. Okay, I still hung in there, because I knew she would be staying with him in his family home for 2 weeks. Something was BOUND to happen, right? NOPE! One more kiss in the heat of a weak moment, and then he pulls away from her... Again. It is enough to give you whiplash.

Perhaps the thing that bothers me the most, is that his hatred for this girl stems from something that happened when she was 8 years old and had no control over. I kept hoping for a conversation about this. Maybe he would admit that it wasn't hatred, but that he just missed her so much. I had hoped for some kind of a confrontation, but still, I was left wanting.

At this point, I no longer even care what happens to these two or when. You can't call this a romance book, and you certainly cannot call whatever they have a "relationship." This was definitely not worth a credit, not worth my time, and definitely not worth my investment into ... whatever it is they call it. I strongly urge you to not waste a credit on this one. You will be disappointed all the way through.

Great story little too long

First off Narrators Jacob Morgan is always amazing & Erin was great too.
The story was a really great story but more than half of the story out H/h wasn’t together like chapter 30 something. I listen while I’m working and it just too long for me for them to even get along. Then the ending was quick HEA. I liked how it ended. I just like my epilogues little longer.

I’ve found a new favorite!

When I started this book, I was thinking it would just be a book to read between novels. Nope. That’s not what happened. I fell. I fell hard. Micalea Smeltzer’s writing style is out of this world and her characters???? STOLE MY HEART!

Do NOT miss this one! You will fall hard for beautifully chiseled characters. You will be enveloped in an angst filled, page turning story line.

Erin Mallon & Jacob Morgan brought Rory & Mascen to life in a fantastic way. Their voices nailed the characters beautifully and I was not bored by their narrations.

Five stars and two thumbs up for this amazing read! I can not wait to dive into Cole’s story next!

My favorite by this author

This book had a sort of comforting feeling to it. I'm not really a fan of small town or second chance romances, but I think the added enemies to lovers bit made it more enjoyable to me. Even if that 'enemies' part didn't make any sense at all to me, his reasoning as to why he was such a douche. But I still found it to be sweet, and as I said, somewhat comforting. I have read this author before and wasn't all that impressed, but this book has me possibly wanting to read more.

I did a listen to this one by audiobook, and absolutely loved the narration. That may have been what actually made this one so good for me.
