Libby is a Cutter - a native of the area - in college hoping to get into Harvard Law school after graduation. She has not had an easy life and is hoping to make something of herself. She catches the eye of the star baseball player Aiden, and spends a year fending him off and becoming his best friend. Aiden is intrigued by Libby, but arrogantly never sees more to her than her being a Cutter and a temporary conquest to be had. Libby knows this and is capable of protecting herself from Aiden's charms, much to his aggravation. But then, one night he saves her from some frat boys and Libby's determination is not as solid as it once was.
This story is told in alternating points of view giving the reader an honest look into each of the characters motivations, character and history. This gives the reader a strong desire for both Aiden and Libby's happiness and to know what happens with them. This is a short introduction to Marx's full length book Binding Arbitration, A Chick Lit/Contemporary Romance Novel which I will be purchasing immediately.
There is a gritty reality to this story that is compelling and addictive. There is profanity and sexual situation and conversation which are really the angst of the story. Highly recommended to readers who liked Beautiful Disaster and its raw emotionalism.

Oh wow, I loved Cutters Vs. Jocks! I adored the interaction between the hero and heroine most of the way through the book and on several occasions my heart strings were tugging away. The cutter vs jocks issue wasn’t a big deal to me, only the growing love between the characters. I was only disappointed that I’d have to wait to see what truly happens between them. I don’t particularly like the idiocy of heroes that just sleep with the heroines without any protection and act like it never entered their head there could be repercussions. The author should always work the protection issue into the story instead of making their characters seem irresponsible. I was so engrossed in Cutters Vs. Jocks that when it came to the last pages I was crushed I’d have to be on “hold”, waiting to find out what happens. I guess that’s to the author’s advantage though because you know I’m going to go right out and get the continuing novel, Binding Arbitration! I suggest the reader buys it right along with Cutters Vs. Jocks so you don’t have to wait for more! Elizabeth Marx is a new-to-me author who will be bumped up to my favorite authors list! 4 1/2 Stars!
Be sure, whatever you do, to read the blurb at the beginning that explains what cutters means. Having lived near a college town most of my life, I always heard of the town people being referred to as townies. Or I may have used the town versus gown dilemma. Cutters is an Indiana term that initially was in reference to stone cutting professionals.
Libby first meets Aidan while out for a night on the town. When the cutter girl beats the college jock at pool, he is taken with her. It turns almost obsessive in my mind but he pursues her like he has his baseball career in college.
I do not want to spoil the book but I will say that it left me wanting to know more. The book ends with graduation, when Aidan finds out that Libby is not just a cutter but also a graduate and a smart one.
The setting may be different from other Marx books I've read but Elizabeth Marx writes characters a reader becomes invested in and the reader wants more.
I am going to pick up the next book in the series, Binding Arbitration, now to find out what happens to Libby and Aidan in the future.
Having been raised in a town with a college within walking distance I can relate to Elizabeth as well Aiden's behavior when is so similar to the boys I dated. Aiden was focused on his baseball career and his hopes of signing with a MLB team and just assumed that Elizabeth was a Cutter (townie) without aspirations of her own. He never delved past his assumptions, after all, she worked at a diner even though he saw her reading at the library everyday.
I absolutely adored and can't wait to read the follow up book. Do yourself a favor and get this novella!
