Brooks and Jonas are realistic and down-to-earth people who are dedicated and passionate about their careers, and they have insecurities and issues that are believable and easy to relate to. Both are strong, complex individuals whose witty banter and sizzling interactions creates a powerful story that the reader can embrace. I absolutely enjoyed both of these characters, I couldn't help but cheer for them as they discover that they can balance their careers while falling in love with each other.
Protecting the Quarterback is a lighthearted and passionate love story that every football fan will love to read. Romance fans, if you want a fast-paced sports themed story that has a wonderful mixture of football, drama, and passionate romance, then this is the book for you!
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author / publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Well, I have to say that I start listening to the peeps that know my reading habits better that I do sometimes. Ms. Knight delivers a story that is completely relatable. True to life characters and a storyline that isn’t contrived but noteworthy in that sometimes lines are crossed in the sports world.
Brooks is the girl that I wish I could talk to about football. Growing up in Oklahoma and Texas, football is king and you learn at the knee the sport. The teams to cheer for, the teams to hate forever, coaches, sportscasters, etc. I never wanted to be in the sports world but my dad made sure that I could read a box score for any sport and be able to hold my own in a conversion with a man. She reminded me a little bit of the character Sheryl Yoast from the movie Remember the Titans. Go ahead…look it up on IMDB. I’ll wait…She is determined, smart, sexy and completely thrown when she falls for the quarterback. Never expecting to have to choose between her career and love, she is at a crossroads.
Jonas isn’t your typical alpha athlete either. You want to hug him and tell him that everything will work out in the end. Don’t worry about it. He has the most to lose in the story and it shows great character growth that he is willing to do that for Brooks and for the team. Most importantly, though, he does it for himself. If I had one itsy bitsy thing…I would have liked to have seen an appearance from his mother. I’m weird and when you read the story, you might agree with me. My heart broke for him in regards to that thread.
Why should you read this story? Well, the characters for one. Relatable, very smart and strong characters. Jonas and Brooks are sometimes too smart for each other but they need each other in the end. Never forgetting themselves in the process of falling in love with each other. The football scenes and references. Ms. Knight knows her stuff and you know that sitting on the couch with her on Sunday would be a hoot. Plus, again…someone I could talk to; besides my hubby (when he’s not yelling).
Even if you don’t like football or its just a stupid sport, do yourself a favor and pick Ms. Knight’s latest. You can’t go wrong. Again…did I mention football players?
*I was given a copy of this book for my opinion. My opinion is my own and I wasn't paid for it.*
My favorite part was when Jonas was talking to Mark at the camp. I finally saw the real Jonas. The one that he wants the world to see again. Jonas is trying to change. Will Brooks believe the new Jonas or the one she has seen in the news and tabloids?
Great characters. I could picture all of the descriptions in this book.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

A fantastic ready by Kristina Knight.
If you love sporty and sexy football guys, and strong, opinionated and won't take crap off of anyone females, then this is the book for you!
You will find yourself on a rollercoaster ride of emotions with this one. You'll love to hate people, want to thump them on the heads and call them names, and then grab them up in a bear hug and squeeze the stuffin' out of them. And when that is all said and done, you'll want to do it all over again.
Great characters, awesome descriptions to details, strong dialogue and good story line.
All in all, a great read.
