Synopsis 3

Jace Sloan has it all. He’s smoking hot, a college football star with a storybook family, and he’s never met a woman he couldn’t charm. He’s also never met one who makes him want to be a better man…until he meets Maggie. Now, this self-proclaimed geek with wild red hair and the greenest eyes he’s ever seen has him thinking all kinds of crazy thoughts. Like settling down and being a one-woman man.

Maggie Fielding is anything but Jace’s type. For starters, her IQ is bigger than her chest size. But Jace is panty melting hot, and she’s having a hard time remembering that he’s bad news. If only she could stop telling him her secrets, because her answers to his questions just might have both of them falling in love for the first time.

This book definitely pulls at your heart strings.  I laughed and I cried and I was so sad to see the story come to an end.

The story of the book worm and the smoking hot jock, two very distinct opposites that are put into a situation that neither one is too happy about.  Can two people from very different worlds meet on middle ground, start a friendship and maybe find love.

Jace Sloan is the smoking hot jock who knows he can have any girl that he wants and takes advantage of that.  It is always consensual and he makes sure they both are satisfied but it is just sex, no strings and no feelings.  When Jace is told he has to have a tutor to help him pass his class, he goes along with it but doesn’t plan on taking it too seriously as evident when he arrives late to their first meeting, because he ran into a girl and couldn’t pass up the offer.

Maggie Fielding is finishing up her Master’s in Nursing and working.  She is a very dedicated student, she has had a tough life and has worked very hard to get where she is and has her goals outlined in regards to climbing the ladder for her job.  Maggie was not impressed when she met Jace at their first tutoring session; he showed up late and then offered a lame excuse about a car problem that she knew was a lie.  She was all for helping people but only if they wanted to help themselves.  At that first meeting Maggie began to plan her out so that she didn’t have to spend any more time with Jace than necessary.

Jace the man-whore and Maggie the princess virgin, neither one had any idea the impact that this meeting would have on their future, in their lives, careers and love.

I LOVED this book, the storyline keeps you guessing.  Yes it is a love story, but it has drama, unexpected death, unknown history discovered, the ever important lesson of not to judge a person by their appearance or their history, and the importance of family and friends when tragedy strikes.  Sometimes love and support is all you need to make it out the other side stronger and other times you need a swift kick in the ass to remember what you need to be fighting for.

The author did an amazing job in writing this story, the characters are lovable and relatable, even with great tragedy she was able to give us hope.  Thank you for an AMAZING book and I can’t wait to read more of your work.

Excerpt

The cadence of his breathing filled the room and Maggie decided she was glad he was there.

“Jace?”

“What?”

“Why do you do it?”

“Do what?”

“Go from girl to girl. My mother was promiscuous because she tried to make up for everything wrong in her life—no relationship with her family, a kid she didn’t want. But you have the most wonderful family in the world. And you have friends—and talent. I don’t understand what you’re trying to compensate for.”

He didn’t say anything, so she said, “You don’t have to answer. I shouldn’t have asked. I just finished telling you to stay out of my business and now I’m butting into yours.”

“It isn’t that I don’t want to answer. It’s—I don’t know the answer. Maybe it’s evolutionary psychology. You know, spill your seeds and all that crap.”

“You’re kidding, right? That theory has to do with finding the best candidate for breeding to produce the best offspring. It isn’t an excuse to screw every female in Texas. Unless you’re saying you want to impregnate women to create a bunch of little football All-American’s?”

“Hell, no. My policy is no glove, no love. I’m saying, could be, men aren’t supposed to be monogamous.”

“You’re speaking for your entire gender?”

“Yeah.”

“So—your dad could have women on the side and that would be okay.”

“No! All right, you’ve made your point. Some men can be happy with one woman.”

“But not you.”

He rolled up on his elbow and rested his face in his hand. “I don’t know how to say this without sounding like a complete jerk. I guess I do it because I can. From the time I was in junior high, girls have thrown themselves at me and all I’ve done is take advantage of it. I’ve never lied to get a girl to sleep with me. I’ve never told one I loved her or promised forever. I don’t even spend the night. They know what to expect from me.” He flopped back down. “Maybe I’ve slept with more than my share, but I don’t consider myself a bad guy. Do you?”

“Does it matter what I think?”

“Yeah.”

“Well then, I think you’re just as emotionally unavailable as I am. I avoid men because I’m afraid I’ll lose my heart, and you go from girl to girl to keep from giving yours away.”
