Hard Tackle

I tell him I’m not interested, that I hate football players, that I’ve already had my life ruined once by an athlete.

I’m not the cheerleader type, and I’m not impressed by his money, his fame, his charm, or his incredible good-looks. And I’m certainly not into the fact that he’s basically about to become my step-brother.

But apparently Jack Stratton doesn’t like to be told no. From what I’ve heard, no woman can resist Tampa Bay’s star tight end.

Needless to say, he’s not used to a girl like me telling him to go f*ck himself.

It’s bad enough our parents are getting married and I have to see him semi-regularly, but now he’s on probation and has to move back in with us to keep from boozing and whoring around too much…

It was easy to hold out before—to escape his advances and deny my own desires—but living under the same roof as Jack Stratton might prove to be harder than I thought…

This full-length Contemporary New Adult Sports Romance Novel is the first book in the Stepbrother Warriors Series. Can be read Stand-Alone. Contains explicit adult content, harsh language, and offensive themes.

My Review:

This was another really enjoyable read from the author for me.

The pace is good, has great central characters with personalities that easily made me connect with them especially Bree and her mother.  I must also say her new step father I particularly liked and it was great to not have all the over the top drama that some other stepbrother stories seem to have.  This felt a little more mature perhaps again because Bree came across as being quite mature for her age being that she has helped her mum in her business.

Bree is head strong, independent and also quite realistic about life and love and has all the usual hang ups and secret loves. It was interesting to follow her and Jacks no attachment rules play out and you kind of know how that will turn out with misunderstandings and the usual love drama.

Fair Warning cliffhanger of sorts at the end which introduces a whole new set of questions and new characters and I will definitely be following this series.
