ARC Review | Jock Rule by Sara Ney

After reading and loving Sara Ney’s How to Date a Douchebag series, picking up her Jock Hard series really was a no-brainer. And what fun this series is! New Adult has never been such a hoot, and really, I want to get together with these gals for a girls night in!

ARC from the author

Kip Carmichael is no pretty boy.

He’s a rough. Dirty. Giant. Hair so unruly, and a beard so thick, his friends on the team call him Sasquatch.

The first time Sasquatch lays eyes on Theodora “Teddy” Johnson across the keg at a party one night on Jock Row, she’d been relegated to the sidelines by her jock hungry “friends.”

Week-after-week, he watches beautiful but bashful Teddy getting overshadowed, and overlooked. Sasquatch finally broad shoulders his way through the crowd, offering to to be her hairy godmother. But the minute their eyes meet? He’s a goner.

Teaching her the RULES for winning a jock will be the easy part. Not falling in love with her is going to be a losing game.

| Book Review |

Jock Rule is the second installment in Sara Ney’s Jock Hard series, but don’t let the title fool you. I thought this series was going to be sexy and raunchy (which I totally would have been on board for,) but it’s chock full of some of the most romantic New Adult heroes I’ve ever read. And I freaking love them! When Kip spies Teddy across the room at a rugby team party, she’s like a fish out of water. It’s clear she doesn’t feel like she belongs, and Kip judges the hell out of her. And everyone else there. This is pretty much tit for tat, as Kip has spent much of his life being judged. To say Kip’s (also known as Sasquatch due to his facial hair and large stature,) attention takes Teddy by surprise is an understatement. They are complete opposites, but somehow fate (and then Kip’s insistence,) keeps throwing them together. Like I mentioned in my intro, this series is so much fun. Kip and Teddy immediately hone in on what drives the other nuts, and it’s pretty much game on from there. These guys were hilarious when they were together, and this is the kind of story where the couple is so busy being friends they don’t realize they’re falling in love, and it seemingly comes out of nowhere; the reader knows better even if they don’t. The pacing of this book was perfect; Kip and Teddy were constantly learning new things about each other, and they were always having such a good time that you were, too. Even while I was satisfied with the ending, I feel like I could have read about them forever. For New Adult, this book was so low angst. That’s not to say Kip and Teddy didn’t have their hurdles, because they did. They were just so easygoing they didn’t get caught up in them. Did I mention the chemistry between these two? They loved being together no matter where they were or what they were doing, and the bedroom was no exception.

Jock Rule was such an entertaining read, and if you are looking for a good time, you cannot go wrong by picking it up!

  3. This sounds wonderful! I love it when a book feels like you are along for the ride as a couple falls in love. I like the fact that they spend a lot of time joking with each other.
