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.
I've read so many second chance romances that begin many years after the original love affair falls apart, but this story takes the reader there for all the close up, beautiful beginning and what came from it in this opposites attract from the opposite sides of the campus romance.
They are both young in many ways though Libby has had to grow up fast and hard leaving her jaded and distant while Aidan is the guy who can have any woman he wants with a promising future career as a star pitcher. I thought the author developed the characters and the story line well building to the fateful moments. The story focused more on Libby's backstory (which was necessary), but I do hope that Aidan's story gets some attention, too, further along in the series.
This story ends with things very unsettled, but it is meant to act as a set up for what is to come. I look forward to the tough-fought romance that I just know will be the result.
I'm not usually a fan of New Adult romance, but once in a while a story comes along that completely engages me anyway.
This is a story told mostly in narration. I was wincing the whole time because everyone kept telling Libby her story would have a sad ending because they were from different economic classes.
Elizabeth seemed pretty determined to not have a happy ending. Elizabeth never let Aiden know anything of her background, or what she was doing other than working (after a year of friendship) -- even though he thought of her as his closest friend...maybe because he's never really held a conversation with a female his age before?
