The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love
Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?

Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…

Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she's shut him down. Completely.
That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It's a good thing Drew knows all about winning.

All’s fair in love and football…Game on

Okay. I got the ARC from the publicist. I actually ignored it (I know! I'm sorry but there're too many things going on in my life) but then one day, I was scrolling through my email. I saw this, and saw the cover, and yes, I am definitely sold to the idea of reading it. LOL. The cover is hot and a good motivation to add the book in Goodreads and read it eventually.

Eventually came too soon, I decided last Thursday to start it. From that first pages, from the 'Hi, Big Red' of Drew. I'm hooked. I know. It's insta-lust. Just like my insta-lust with the cover. :P but I can definitely say that even if it was, Callihan takes it slow. She proved to me that the story will get better and better.

It was such a good story that it had me laughing, smirking, annoyed, teary and hoping. One fucking rollercoaster ride that I want to experience again. Never mind that I don't like the said rollercoaster ride (the literal ride-of-doom).

I love all the characters. From the main ones to the supporting ones. Even the guys! Those guys were such supportive human beings that I just want to see them more in the story (hoping they get shown too in the next one).

Drew Baylor... Hmmm! Yum!!! He's not just a dumb jock, there's more to him than meets the eye. It's like, all the gorgeousness and the hotness are just added bonus. :)

I even like Anna Jones. She's stubborn, will give you a piece of her mind, witty and sarcastic. She knows what she wants. But I just don't like the pity party she felt from somewhere there in the story. I mean, I experience being chubby in highschool. Well, grade school. I know it's not a nice experience when people were bullying you being so large than a normal student. When guys bully me, I fight back though. Lol. I'm big, so I can fight back. :P

In any case, Drew and Anna's story are quite long, and my friends know that I don't like long stories. I'm more of a 300 pages or less kind of girl. :D but after reading all of 415 pages, I can say that I want more of them. >_<

I love men who cries. It breaks my heart so damn much. That's all I'm ever going to say about it. :p It's a really good book and you won't be disappointed with the smuts scenes too. Yes. SCENES. There are lots of it. :D

I recommend it to you all (New Adult lovers). :) a must try.
