Sacked (Gridiron #1) – Jen Frederick

 ‘Sweet baby Jesus, Tumblr did not prepare me for this.’

This was sooooo good! I’m already thinking of the next book in the series, which I’m starting asap.

I have to admit that the plot was quite predictable, but I really didn’t care. It’s written beautifully, and once I got into it, there was no stopping until the happy end.

I was so into this whole Knox Masters universe, where he is the centre and attracts everything and everyone around him. He is so blunt, says exactly what he thinks and there is no hesitation, whether it’s on the field or in love. You just can’t help but imagine him as a god amongst men, with flawless physique and this powerful presence.

‘Panties probably decorate the sidewalks as he walks to class. Women all around the campus have to be offering themselves as tribute on the altar of his purported virginity on a nonstop basis.’

Also, I know nothing about football. Well, that’s a lie, I know some, since I read countless football player romances, and watched a few seasons of ‘Saturday night lights’, but if I said that taught me anything about the sport I would be offending any real fans. However, the way the author describes the sport in the book, the struggle and beauty of college football, really elevates the story. It makes it much more interesting and real.



Ok, now to the good stuff, the scene where Ellie and Knox are dancing at the party is so hot,  had to stop reading for a moment and change scenery because I thought my ovaries would explode! Yes it was that hot, and the fact that I listened to music mentioned in the book (I love doing that btw) really set the mood. And that wasn’t the hottest of scenes! Right after that Knox is jerking off in the bathroom while Ellie is watching him, and I never considered watching men spank the monkey sexy. But Oh. My. God. This was just the most scorchingly beautiful, panty-melting thing I’ve read in a very long time.
