Well, I can tell you that Gridiron involves an offensive and a defensive team.
And the crowd goes wild!
Stacey understood ONE thing from reading Sacked.
I love a good romance and add a romantic, sexy and extremely alpha hero and I’m a puddle of goo and very happy. Knox was an AWESOME hero. This man/boy (he’s 21…still a baby in my old eyes) has ticked all my boxes and left me very impressed. Knox is determined, driven and dedicated to succeed in his chosen path. I admire a man that doesn’t let his other brain make his decisions. The biggest heart flutter moment for me though, was when he instantly decided that the beautiful, bright and busty Elliot was his perfect match. Yes, a good old case of insta-lust. I wonder if she would have run for the hills if she’d known what he was thinking the first time they met?
Elliot (poor bugger…that name, her parents were WACKO) has one person in her life that has always been there for her. Elliot’s brother Jack has been her rock, her best friend and the one person she will risk EVERYTHING for. Elliot’s story touched my heart. As a parent myself, I struggled with how her parents shoved such a huge burden on her young, twelve-year-old shoulders. Practically her whole life has been dedicated to making Jack’s life easier…without him knowing it. Imagine her horror when her first chance at happiness is at risk because of a deception that started when she was in middle school.
Knox has been solely focused on his football but when Elliot crashes into his world he realises that there is more to life than football. Yes, he’s still dedicated, but now he realises his happiness is complete with football AND Elliot in his life.
Elliot has dedicated so much of her time to Jack because of her love for him but you can tell that there is also a degree of 'begging for approval' from her parents. Every child wants to be loved and accepted but in Elliot’s case it was an unattainable goal. When Knox becomes an important part of her life she realises that she needs to make some changes and one of them is facing Jack with the truth of her duplicity.
Knox and Elliot are a perfect match…eventually. We have some dramas that need to be addressed before they can find their happy ever after. I was sucked into their love story from the very first word. Knox is my kind of man. His devotion is never questionable and his love for Elliot shone through with his kind and thoughtful gestures. I loved that, because of her understanding of football and knowledge of the obligations tied to being an elite athlete, Elliot is perfect for Knox. She has her own life, understands that he can’t be with her 24/7 and accommodates his sore muscles by “taking the lead”, “controlling the play” and “riding the bronco” when needed. ;-)
I really enjoyed Sacked. I have come to realise that New Adult (genre) set in a College environment doesn’t seem to send me as bonkers. Maybe it’s the talent of the authors that makes College romance more appealing??? I kind of have a feeling it has more to do with the fact that these young peoples can mix their hi-jinx and shenanigans with a dedication to education and sports/music/drama/activities. Unfortunately, when the characters lack direction and purpose the book seems to lack direction and purpose to me too. Sacked gets it right.
Sacked ticked all my boxes by making me smile, squirm, snort and smirk. This was an awesome start to my Gridiron marathon and I’m happy to say that Jockblocked is locked and loaded.
I absolutely loved Sacked. The writing was just as good as I was expecting it to be, and the dual points of view were so much fun. At times the story might have been a little cheesy or predictable, but I didn't care. I was so wrapped up in the characters and their love story that a pig could have flown through a scene and I would have been okay with it. Why?
Seriously. Jen Frederick created a man for all of us to swoon and fight over. He was obviously hot (see cover model), but that wasn't all Knox had to him. Sure, he was cocky light most sports romance dudes, but his attitude and lifestyle were things to appreciate. I don't know that I've met a hero who was quite like him before. I also really loved Ellie. She was smart, beautiful and loyal. It wasn't always the best decision, but she put family first. Ellie was the perfect match for Knox. Their connection was so dang hot I'm surprised the pages weren't catching on fire as I was reading!
Like I said before, I could probably complain about the predictability or the cheesiness of some of the story, but I won't. I don't want to. The connection between the characters outshined anything I might have found to change my 5 star rating. Sacked was way too much fun to read.
All sports romance fans need to pick up this book. It's a delight to read and only $0.99 on Kindle right now! I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
Then there was a few things in the second half I found, I dunno, annoying, stupid, unrealistic?
Even though I love sport romances, the story seemed to drag at times and I got bored with the sport and wanted the romance, so I ended up skimming a lot. The editing mistakes bothered me, too.
But Knox and Ellie were both likeable characters, and I liked the guys on the team, so I'm probably going to read the other books in the series someday.
