* I was provided a eARC by the author in exchange for an honest review *

Ok, I have mixed feelings about this book. It was hard for me to review this book because I really loved M.L. Sparrows previous books. I liked this book but honestly I wasn’t impressed with the story. I’ve read so many books with this trope where the guy is a playboy with commitment issues and a girl with a tragic past. The main characters are pretty much okay but their relationship didn’t frustrate me enough to root for them. Nonetheless it was a good start for a new NA contemporary series.

After a tragic car accident Chloe moves from England to Texas to Study at St. Joseph’s University as a scholarship student. At the first night her path crosses with the star quarterback Parker Mitchell. Parker is a player with commitment issues who doesn’t do relationships but something in Chloe captivates him enough to forget his own rules. Chloe only believes in a long term relationship and when the school’s player pursue’s her can she believe he’s changed? can she  overcome the guilt that haunts her?

Chloe is pretty likable character. Her sweet and caring nature towards her friends is really admirable. Parker Mitchell is an amazing character. He is totally fun and sweet not like those arrogant jerks displayed in other books. I liked Chloe and Parker’s relationship, their chemistry is good but sadly it was missing all the sexual tension. Nonetheless, they are great couple. Their love was build on their strong trust for each other. Despite how many obstacles comes in their way, they never give up on their love. As for the supporting characters, I liked all of them especially Riley. Each of them has brought more drama to the plot and I really enjoyed it.

The plot isn’t unique but it was written in a way to keep you on edge through out. The story moved in a fast pace with equal amount of drama and romance. I enjoyed the dual POV of the story. The writing is simple and easy to read.

Overall, I liked it but I think it could’ve been much better.  Basically, it is a typical NA contemporary read that I think so many people would love to read. If you like insta-love/sports/college romances then you’ll definitely like it more than me.

 Do I recommend it?
Yes, I would highly recommend it to those who love college romances.


MY RATING: 4-stars14-stars1 4-stars1[3/5 Stars]
