Honestly I don’t know where to start with this one, and I can without a doubt say that Sacked will push a lot of people’s hard limits.
Sawyer Reed is our resident manwhore, and star quarterback of Camden University. He is arrogant with a capital A, completely narcissistic and does not really care about the women he leaves in his trail. He is cocky and entitled, and because of all these traits, I was hoping to fall head over heels for him in a big way, because these guys usually have big soft hearts hidden in their big hard bodies.
Our cliché virgin, Gretchen Cole doesn’t know what the other girls see in him, all she can see is a man who is used to getting what he wants and she isn’t about to bow down to him, especially since she has an ulterior motive for getting to know him.
“Sure, Sawyer Reed was cute in an I’m-a-fucking-douche-and-I-know-it kind of way, but in my opinion, he really wasn’t all that. Then again, I wasn’t one to fall for a cocky smile and a douchebag attitude.”
Sawyer decides he wants what he can’t have and so he finds ways to befriend Gretchen and slowly he breaks down her walls.
I admit, I did enjoy this story and it kept me on my toes and all, but the actions of Sawyer were just too much for me and I did not really warm to him at all.
Overall, it had great potential, I liked the plot and even if certain parts of it were a bit dubious, it still made for a good read. Had it not been for Sawyer’s many indiscretions, I would have rated this four stars, but my enjoyment was severely let down by this turn of events and I never really believed in his true love for Gretchen.
Sacked is a standalone new adult sports romance, told in dual POV.
