I love it when a book grips me from the get go, gives me all the feels, both good and bad, and just won’t let me put it down for even a minute. This is how I felt whilst reading Sacked, it was just the kind of book I was looking for, it was sweet and angsty with a whole lot of REALLY hot scenes.
It’s nothing new, it’s a new adult, college based, sports romance between the super hot football player and a normal everyday girl. However, the main thing which I really liked about this book that made it a little bit different from the norm, was that the hero is a virgin, and is not afraid to show his heart on his sleeve.
Knox Masters is waiting for the one, he wants to wait until he meets a girl that he can connect with and have a good solid relationship. He is not looking for soulless encounters like so many of his team members. He is a man who knows what he wants, so when he meets a girl one morning at the football stadium who is beautiful, appears to love football as much as he does, makes him laugh and whom he clicks with almost immediately, he knows that she is the person he wants to pursue.
Yeah, so he is smitten pretty much from the get go, but Ellie Campbell is not having any of it. She is keeping a huge secret from everyone in order to help her brother Jack keep his place on the football team, and so she really doesn’t want to get involved with one of his team-mates, especially one as popular and with so much to lose as Knox; she feels like she isn’t good enough for him.
She tries to stay away she really does, but the sexual chemistry between these two is something fierce! Seriously, my kindle was on fire – the sex and all lead up to it was top notch.
Knox was perfect, I don’t think there was anything about him that you could fault. He was so respectful and thoughtful, but with an edge that made him sexy and confident.
Also, this book made me laugh – the banter was so funny and the relationship between team-mates Matty and Gunner had me giggling like a kid, their back and forth was hilarious! I really can’t wait to read more of this series, because it could definitely turn out to be a fave.
My only complaint, was the overly neat tied up ending (a bit cheesy, but it fit the book)
Told in dual POV, this is a Standalone, New Adult, College, Sports Romance.
