Disgraced college quarterback Logan Hunt was on his way to NFL stardom when he messed up big-time. Now the Texas star player with a bad temper has a new option: Seattle’s EOL College—as in End of the Line, to his fellow misfit recruits. It’s Logan’s last chance. If he can follow the rules. No parties, no fighting, no swearing, and oh, no dating the coach’s daughter, Jess. Simple. Yeah, right. For Logan, there has never been a rule he’s more tempted to break.

The deal is “just friends.” The pretty, confident, and fiercely smart math whiz is fine with pizza, tutoring, and keeping Logan in line. But the closer Jess gets, the more receptive she is to his warm heart and spirit—not to mention his irresistible off-field passes. With defenses down, they’re both heading into the danger zone.

It’s more than thrilling. It’s love. It’s also a game changer that could sideline Logan’s NFL goals - and more important, a future with Jess. But dreams are worth fighting for, right?

My Review
I decided to read this book because I already have the ARC of book 2. I'm so brilliant that I haven't noticed it until it was on my tablet.

Usually for books in English, I need at most five pages to enter the story and adapt to the style of the author. Here it took me almost fifteen percent of the story to get there.

The only negative point is the summary which I find very long and a little too spoiler.

We dive into the university world and the sports part revolves around American football. It changes me from the usual football which I must tell you, does not fascinate me at all. The sportsman with the smart girl is well known but here, she is the daughter of the coach and she knows a lot about American football. This gives them more common points and easy communication.

We discover Logan and Jess in depth. Their pasts are different but painful. I don't wish that to anyone. To make matters worse, in addition to the rules to follow, we have Ben. I think it was done on purpose but I found him tasteless and self-centered.

I enjoyed following the characters. I managed to put myself in place of Jess and Logan. It's not so common. Congrats to Sariah Wilson

There is zero sex scene and ... it doesn't matter. So you know it's not necessary to have one to make a good story.

Bash didn't go unnoticed and I'm glad that the second book is dedicated to him. I will read it very soon but first a little reading in French.

Although the start was a bit laborious, I had a great time with this story. It was only the epilogue that surprised me a little because I did not expect this so quick
Rating : 8,1/10
