Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

When it comes to dating, everyone makes mistakes. Rosa Blasi made hers with professional athletes . . . over and over again.

There was the hockey player (whose body part she mistook for a rolling pin), the basketball center (her karmic "grim reaper”), the baseball outfielder (a catch "on paper”...until she read too much about him in the papers), and finally the NFL running back who led her to athlete sobriety. Over the course of ten years, actress Rosa Blasi had serious relationships with stars from several professional sports. And now she shares the intimate details of her wild journey with self-deprecating candor—offering juicy behind-the-scenes details of her romantic misadventures with jocks.

From sneaking into the Playboy Mansion to her debut spread in Maxim magazine, Rosa details with acerbic wit and raw honesty the surprising ups and sometimes frightening downs of dating sports "heroes." Jock Itch is an eye-opening and often hilarious cautionary tale guaranteed to make anyone contemplating a relationship with a pro athlete turn and run as fast as possible to the opposite end zone.

I just finished the book, and I predict great sales. Rosa is an incredible writer, moving effortlessly from laugh-out-loud funny to huggably helpless to stone-cold beyotch. Sometimes all three on the same page!
If your daughter is pining over an athlete, buy her this book!

I did not know who this chick was, but I decided to get the book after hearing a funny radio interview. I DID NOT expect this book to be as funny as it was!I seriously couldn't put it down and I found myself blowing things off in order to finish it. I had just had to know what happens next. Then my boyfriend got a hold of it and we were literally arguing over who got to read it :)
This book is beyond hilarious. She reminds me of Chelsea Handler in her wit and honesty and tells it like it is. You won't BELIEVE the ending...but I don't want to spoil it for you. Do yourself a favor and get this book. I predict the best beach read of the summer!

Amazing book. It was so funny, and reallllly interesting once you figure out who the athletes are that she talks about. Read it really fast because I couldn't put it down. I am so glad I saw this book on a whim.

I absolutely loved the way Rosa writes, its like you are right there with her. This book made me giggle to myself, literally laugh out loud in public places, and gasp in disbelief. Everytime i put the book down i couldnt wait to pick it back up to know what her next roller-coaster turn would be. It is written in such an entertaining way I know that others will love it too. This book is definitely getting recommended by me to all my friends and then some for sure.

Excellent, entertaining, and refreshing! This is a laugh out loud book with Blasi's self-deprecating sense of humor and witniness entertaining the reader throughout. This is a great book for everyone. The women will empathize with Blasi while the men enjoy all the sports references. Truly delightful. A great summer read.

I am a snobby reader. I won't read just any old book. But I'd seen Rosa on Make It Or Break It and some where along the way, I read that she wrote a book. I got the free sample on my Kindle and as soon as I finished it, I knew I had to buy it. Boy, am I glad I didn't turn my nose up at this one! I read it in one sitting and could not stop laughing! Don't even try drinking anything while you are reading or your kindle/book will get a really good nose bath. My husband kept waking up and asking me what in the world I could be laughing so hard at.

Rosa is honest in a way that most people can't pull off. She's not just funny, she's witty. I'm not a big sports person but I love Hockey. I always wondered what it was like to date an athlete. It seems like an entirely different world and Rosa seems to pull you in, even if you know little about sports. It's amazing how she can take her bumpy life and put it all out there for the world to see. She opens the door on what life with an athlete is really like and what really goes on in that world. Some horrible things happened to her and she writes everything not just with humor, but with grace and with class. Especially considering all that went on in her relationships.

You won't just like this book. You'll LOVE it and you'll be telling your friends and family to read it too! Trust me, you don't want to miss Jock Itch.

Hilarious! Omg, laugh-out-loud funny and smartly written, a great read! Rosa tells her story with wit, wittiness and stone cold in-your-face honesty. From start to finish never a dull moment!
