I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
In the new Play-By-Play novel by the New York Timesbestselling author of All Wound Up, a football hot shot and his best friend’s sister are breaking all the rules.All the Right Moves
For Barrett Cassidy, playing defense for the Tampa Hawks is a dream come true. And now he may have discovered his dream woman. Harmony Evans, once the sweet, gawky teenage sister of his best friend and teammate has grown into a smart, gorgeous woman with moves he finds hard to resist. But he knows he can’t get involved with his best friend’s sister—it’s guy code.
Harmony has always gone after what she wants with single-minded determination, from her independence to her education to her career in social work. She never expected her youthful crush on Barrett to develop into something deeper. And she’s not about to let some ridiculous man rules or her brother stand in her way.
When the chemistry is this combustible, lines tend to get crossed. And when Barrett and Harmony’s secret gets out, it just might be game over...
Unexpected Rush by Jaci Burton was a DNF at 46% for me. I simply couldn’t get into this story and there are several reasons why this is the case. These are:-
– The heroine in this story, Harmony. She’s an overly confident and self-centred person. I found her to be a little ridiculous and lacked respect for the hero and her brother with regards to their feelings and possible consequences of a relationship with our hero, Barrett.
– The dialogue wasn’t the best and didn’t feel very natural a lot of the time. The talk during sex scenes had me cringing and felt more like a porn movie than a romance novel.
– Harmony’s brother, Drake. He’s over protective and a little ridiculous with his reactions to Harmony’s ex-boyfriends.
There was one thing that I did like and that was our hero, Barrett. He seemed like a good guy and has honorable intentions. But he wasn’t enough for me to continue with the story.
