The uncrowned king of Barnett University. He’s like a freaking celebrity around here. It’s totally ridiculous. People, by which I mean grown women, actually stalk him on the internet. And around campus. Apparently he’s god’s gift to both football and the ladies (I’m using that term loosely). All he has to do is smile and girls just fall right onto their backs before spreading their legs nice and wide. I’ve heard that he’s already plowed his way through half the female population here at Barnett. I’m sure he’ll work his way through the second half before he gets drafted to the NFL later this year.
Yeah… I don’t plan to be one of them. The guy is nothing more than a conceited player. You know the type—a steroid infused meathead jock coasting through college on his football prowess.
I have three words for you—avoid, avoid, avoid.
Need I say more?
I don’t think so.
I’ve had the sad misfortune of running into him on campus. Literally. As in—I literally slammed into him before spilling my iced coffee drink all over that wide rippling chest of his (did I just say that?). What I learned from the experience is that Roan King is one hell of a cocky son of a—
I also learned that he has the most spectacular chest…
And don’t even get me started on those abs… I could probably cut diamonds on them.
Unfortunately for me, Operation Avoid-Roan-King isn’t going so well. Everywhere I go, there he is. If he wasn’t so ridiculously hot, he would be a hell of a lot easier to forget. With his dark hair, shocking turquoise colored eyes and (damn him) buff body, he’s easily the most gorgeous guy I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Crap… see what I mean?
Why do I suddenly have the bad feeling that Roan King is going to lead to my utter ruin and downfall?
Not going to lie… I thought I was going to hate this book. At first, Roan was SUCH a douche canoe I couldn’t even see straight, he pissed me off so bad.
Like seriously… his first run in with Ivy was : Do you want to go back to my place? I have a couple hours to kill.
After she’s like… wtf O.o
He goes “I usually go for girls with a little more on top, but you’ll do.”
Ex-fucking-cuse me? Nah… I’m all for enemies to lovers and bad boys. Maybe a little cockiness or protectiveness, fine. But this? Naw.. that even pisses me off.
However, even though he’s the douchiest douche that ever was… I did end up enjoying their relationship and enjoying the story itself. So much so that I’m currently reading the second book (which is a companion).
This book started out pretty terrible, but if you stick it through, it’s actually quite sweet and a nice romance. Ivy doesn’t let Roan use her or walk all over her. She’s just as sassy as can be and I think that seriously saves this book.
Also.. I totally picked up this book because the cover models are the same as on the Lux books.
Until next time,
