Ace Anderson was run out of his old school, Western U. It wasn't because of his performance as a quarterback on the field. He delivered two championships for the team. It was because the coach hated him with a passion for dating his daughter. It didn't matter that his daughter was a willing participant or that she was just as wild as Ace. Ace committed the worst sin a player could commit. The coach's vendetta not only hurt Ace's pride but also his potential for playing his senior year of college. Ace was being forced to give up his position as quarterback to a future freshman hotshot for another offensive position or sit the bench. This vendetta not only cost him the respect of his teammates but also added to the divide with his best friend Lucy Washington. The only choice he could make was transferring to Southern U for his senior year of college.
New beginnings aren't always what they are cracked up to be. He is having trouble bonding with his new team. On the field they are a solid unit but off the field he is the odd man out. They have heard the rumors of his past experiences. They are going to make him earn their respect. Ace is going to have to change his ways if he wants to become a true member of the team. Bryant Johnson knows a project when she sees one. Ace Anderson needs her help and he needs it fast if they are going to become a championship team.
Bryant Johnson is the coach's daughter. A big red flag for Ace Anderson. His past experiences have left him charred. Here at Southern U attitudes are quite different. His teammates and his coach are encouraging him to date Bryant.
Bryant is known for her dating projects. Her objective to make her boyfriends better men. She prepares them to be better boyfriends, better teammates, and better individuals. After she fixes her project she moves onto the next one. Ace Anderson is proving to be much more difficult than she thought. Her intentions for Ace are changing as she gets to know the man beneath the surface. He still needs a lot of work but he is a keeper.
Bryant is known for her generous heart and selfless giving. She takes care of others. Who takes care of her? Ace sees the vulnerable woman beneath the shiny surface. That's the woman that has his heart. This time he wants to win the girl's heart. He wants to take care of her and share his life.
Jen Frederick scored big with Downed. This book was a true game changer for Ace Anderson. Ace won more than his third college championship. He won my heart.
And Ace. Boy oh boy..looook how far we've come. We all remember him from the previous book in the series and know that he definitely needed a wake up call. Enter: Southern University. As the new and transfered QB, he has to deal with his less than stellar reputation of being a short tempered, angry jerk with a chip on his shoulder. But along came Bryant and her (innocent) machinations and what you have is a crass and blunt Northerner and a proper Sassy Southern lady making a connection neither of them saw coming.
I absolutely LOVED this book. It's a story about redemption, love and having a second chance at being the best person you can be. Bravo, Ms. Frederick!
5 stars! ~Ratula
I haven't had a reaction about a character I disliked so strongly in a long time.
But never the less, I picked up Downed because of all of the reviews, and the fact that Jen Frederick is such an awesome writer that I just had to give Ace a second chance.
I winded up loving Ace, and this book in general. Bryant is what really did it for me.
I adored her. She was a sweet southern bell with a heart of gold. I loved how everyone adored her and she in return cared about everyone.
I just knew she was going to be perfect for Ace. Ace was a grade A jerk, but he redeemed himself.
I can not wait for the next book in this series. I am seriously on pins and needles.
Downed is the third book in the Gridiron series and is Ace's book. He's now on a new team and struggling to connect with his teammates, he's become a lone-wolf, until Bryant enters his life.
Bryant enters Ace's life like a storm and refuses to take no for an answers. She's a bit weird, and has an odd outlook on life, but as you get to know her back story, you start to understand why she behaves the way she does. She works on trying to make Ace not so much of a jerk, while also helping him try to connect with his team. She never intended for him to fall for her, or for her to fall for him.
Watching the cat and mouse game between these two in this book is frustrating at times, and down right sweet at others. They both are extremely frustrating characters and at times Bryant was too sugary sweet for my liking, but she really did grow on me. Ace on the other hand, I loved his jerky ways and I really enjoyed the man he ended up as at the end of this book.
This book was not only a romance, but a book about becoming a team, and how you can't succeed without having a great team of people behind you. It's also about letting go of the past and moving forward from past hurts. It was a quick read for me, and I did enjoy it, but there was just some parts that I felt were too rushed and other parts that I felt drug on for longer than they needed to. If you've read other books in this series and were interested in Ace's book, then I suggest picking this one up, it was definitely not what I was expecting for his story!
