spoilers -- The two were best friends from the age of 5 to 13. The H loved her. Then the H moved away and they lost touch. He has never forgotten her. They meet up again in college. He recognizes the h right away and starts to pursue her. He does not tell her who he is. She does not remember him at all. He keeps trying to jumpstart her memory of him with cute gestures, but she is clueless. She only remembers him when she sees pictures of him in the family album.
I liked the story, but found it unbelievable that the h could forget her childhood sweetheart. And why didn't they keep in touch when he moved away? It is not like they were without social media opportunities.
A recommend. I really liked the H. He was really sweet with the h. I enjoyed the h's roomie too. She was quite a character.
Started to read but after a few chapters found myself really disliking the book and stopped. First the entire premise didn't make any sense to me.... former childhood "best friends" and neighbors go to the same college after losing touch in their way teens, the guy is in love with the girl but the girl doesn't even remember him, really? Not even his name? His face? Does she have brain damage or something? My next problem was how cliche the characters were...... nerdy shy girl and a jock who on the surface is a jerk but truly is a "good" guy underneath it all, where have I read/seen that before? Pretty much everywhere. Finally and the main reason I stopped reading was how disempowering towards women it started to read.... the main female character was essentially harassed and stalked by someone with the assistance of her female roommate because the roommate wanted the two main characters to have sex but it all turned out ok....with all the talk right now about the abuse and harassment going on in Hollywood, all this story does is further perpetuate the dangerous idea that "no" doesn't really mean "no" it means "yes" and what women want doesn't really matter because it's about what other people want that's important. I cannot continue to encourage such beliefs by watching tv or movies or reading any books where this is the message and neither should anyone else.
That's what I'm questioning myself while I was reading the first two pages of this story. Because at those early pages, I already had the feeling that I'm going to enjoy this story. And I sure did!
It's actually not hard to love this book because, dang! Jocks are really hard to resist. But seriously, I just love how this story started. There's no boring introduction at all and as early as the first chapter, I'm already acquainted with the hot Finn Kane (hot name eh?).
I love romance, especially if it's a guy who's pursuing a girl. And take note, it's not just an ordinary guy but King Kane himself, a hot quarterback who's the biggest celebrity in their campus. Quite hard to imagine eh? But that wasn't in my case. It was just wonderfully written, so heck, I'm instantly carried away and found myself drooling over Finn aka King Kane's perfect abs, haha.
So what this story is about again?
Mia is a total nerd. She doesn't like crowds and she prefers to hang out in the library than do "fun" stuff. But her life drastically changes when her bff Kim dragged her to a party where she met King Kane. She doesn't want to be the center of attention and being with Kane, that's one impossible thing to achieve. But the first time she saw him, the attraction is hard to deny. And what's worse is that King Kane seems obsessed with her. Surprise! Surprise!
A very popular jock who fell in love with a simple girl, well, nothing's new about that setup but that didn't stop me from enjoying this story. Well, you don't read it often wherein the guy was the one who's desperately chasing the girl, aight? And my! Thinking all about those sexy scenes makes me blush, haha.
Aside from that, there's no annoying conflict, no annoying groupies, no annoying third party and no main lead's doing stupid things. I guess the only annoying in here is Mia's bff, Kim lol. She was really crazy and been meddling with her love life especially with her sex life lol. But I guess she's fine since she was the one who made Mia and Finn love team happen, eh?
And speaking of love team, let me talk about the main leads.
Mia doesn't like crowds and she's a math nerd. She doesn't stood up at all because she's not like some other girls who dresses up or do makeup. All she thinks about is math, so I really understand her reaction about Finn approaching her and practically begging to give him a chance. Heck, I will be suspicious too if that happens to me. But dang! After all Finn's efforts, she's still very stubborn. I do like heroines with a little attitude but this girl is too stubborn sometimes. I think my only complain about her character was her being too stubborn for her own good.
For Kane. My! For a girl who's not really into jocks, man! I was suddenly into him lol. And just like other jocks, he's cocky, possessive and so full of himself...and I like it, haha. I don't mind characters spouting dirty language once in a while, but dang! This guy has unlimited supply lol. And it was quite disturbing to read for me. Aside from that, I hate his endearment for Mia which is Sugar. Seriously dude?
The main characters we're different from college romance stories I've read before because both of them didn't have a rough past or something similar to that. But still, their past hold a big part for their story. I don't want to discuss more about it because it might spoil you, *wink. To tell you honestly, I don't know what to feel about the "past", I'm sure don't hate it but I'm not fond on how they handled it, particularly Mia. [su_spoiler title="Spoiler"]And also, I find a loop hole on the "I don't remember him" part considering there's a lot of ways they can keep in touch.[/su_spoiler]
But overall, Blitz is a sexy, fun and romantic college football story that I'm sure every romance readers will love too. Also, it's taken from both main characters' POV and it's HEA guaranteed!
