The Pass by Rebecca Jenshak

5 STARS

Release Date: December 8, 2020

SYNOPSIS: I’ve been in love with her for two years. The first time around I screwed things up. I hesitated and the moment was gone. I passed when I shouldn’t have. Not a total loss. I gained a best friend instead of whatever we might have been. Sydney is hands down the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and I’ll do anything to keep her in my life. Even bury my feelings deep inside. But one hot summer together at the lake filled with lots of teeny-tiny bikinis and I’m ready to risk it all for a second chance.

It’s time to take my shot.

REVIEW: Awwww Tanner and Sydney were adorable! I’ve read so many books since I read Nathan‘s story, The Fake, so I kind of forgot about Tanner and Sydney’s meet cute that you see in that book. When I met them in The Fake, I knew I needed to know their story. I’m so glad that Rebecca Jenshak revisited how they met in the beginning of this book. This is such a cute friends to lovers Book, and I just love Tanner and Sydney‘s relationship. I enjoy how everyone around them can see the connection as more than the really strong friendship Tanner and Sydney have found themselves in. It was fun to hear about how they’ve always supported each other since they first went on their first date and unintentionally friend-zoned each other two years prior. I had a moment of pause with the Amelia stuff in the beginning, but I think the author did a really good job of making that a part of the story without making anyone a bad guy. I also really appreciated Amelia’s attitude toward the situation. Tara, Tanner’s sister, was pretty disappointing. We get a little of her backstory and why she is the way she is, but I think I need to know more! Overall, I just really enjoyed seeing these two come together and realize that their connection is meant to be!

The Fake by Rebecca Jenshak

5 STARS!

Release Date: November 19, 2019

SYNOPSIS

I’ve made a lot of dumb mistakes but none dumber than losing her.

Senior year. I should be partying and living it up with my friends before graduation, but one more mistake and I’m off the team. 

Enter Chloe. She comes into my life at a low point, but she becomes the bright spot I reach for every day. She’s the kind of girl who makes a guy want to be a better man. And for a while, I even start to believe I’ve changed enough to deserve her.

I’ve got my eye on the future, and I’m letting my past stay where it belongs.

But the thing about the past… it always comes back to bite you when you least expect it.

REVIEW

This is a college sports romance series with a lot of heart and serious depth. I absolutely love how realistic every character Rebecca Jenshak has written in this series is. Another thing I really love is that both of these characters are very messy. It was wonderful to get the back story of Nathan, which made his growth throughout this story soooooo much better. Chloe was dealt such a crap hand and is really struggling to get through it. Plus, the way they meet! Then the fake relationship. I mean, I just couldn’t put this book down. So I recommend you pick this up on a day you have nothing else to do so you can binge it just like I did!

REVIEW

First things first, THIS COVER. I am here for the sexy black man on the cover. I see so many white boys, and don’t get me wrong I like them, but it’s nice to have some other representation! I’m in LOVE with this cover.

Next, let’s just talk about the Smart Jocks series in general. It is now one of my favorites! There is just such a depth to the characters, and I loved every moment of seeing them all get their HEA’s. So we meet Gabby and Zeke in the first book of the series, and I just wanted to know more about both of them. Zeke is the strong silent mysterious type that is beyond intriguing! Gabby was dealt a crazy hand right before she was supposed to leave for college. Seeing these two keep getting pushed together and tell themselves they weren’t going to fall for each other was so entertaining. I seriously loved their journey and I was so much more invested in them from meeting them in previous books. I that they both have a lot of learning and growing going on. Seriously, this one just gets you in the feels some times. I highly recommend this book, as well as the rest of the series!! Seriously, go read it NOW.

The Fadeaway by Rebecca Jenshak

5 STARS!

Release Date: March 14, 2019

SYNOPSIS

This college jock is a total player. He’s used to getting who and what he wants. Until her. . . 

Katrina
The hottest guy on campus won’t stop asking me out. I know that sounds like a good problem to have, but this guy… this guy has no idea how complicated my life is trying to juggle being a single mom and college student. Every Thursday, he shows up at the café where I work. His cheesy pickup lines and arrogance should have me completely annoyed. I’m not. I can’t say yes, but Thursday is my favorite day of the week.

Joel
The hottest girl on campus won’t go out with me. I know, I know, that sounds presumptuous, but this girl… this girl has gotten under my skin, and I can’t seem to walk away. Every Thursday, I show up at the café where she works. She’s fed me every excuse in the book. I should give up and bang one of the many girls blowing up my phone. I’m not. Even when she says no, Thursday is my favorite day of the week.

REVIEW

After reading book one of this series, The Assist, I had to jump right into book two. Let’s talk about how Rebecca Jenshak threw in every trope I love: taming the bad boy, single parent romance, college sports, I mean it’s like this book was made for me! I loved that I’d already met the leads in book one, but I was totally invested in the well-being of Katrina, her son, and Joel.

JOEL MORENO! I knew his story was going to be good, but once I found out he’d be turned down by single mom Katrina, it was on. Joel’s single-minded pursuit of Katrina is so much fun. Seriously, this book had me smiling for the majority of the time. Of course there is some drama, as is life, but this story pulled all my heart strings in the best way.

Now I’m just counting down the days until The Tip-Off!

YES WE ARE GETTING Z AND GABBY’S STORY!!

It releases on July 25, 2019 (my birthday, what a great present).

The Assist by Rebecca Jenshak

5 STARS!!

Release Date: November 5, 2018

SYNOPSIS

You know those stories where the smart girl tutors the dumb jock? This isn’t it.

Blair
What’s the probability of insulting the one guy on campus I need to help me pass statistics? If I knew, I wouldn’t be standing in front of Wes Reynolds begging him to tutor me.

Basketball player, sexy, arrogant, always sleeping through class… these are the things I knew about him. What I didn’t know is that he is a seriously smart jock.

Wes
What’s the best way to get rid of the peppy and unrelenting girl that keeps asking me to tutor her? If I knew, I wouldn’t be staring at her tan legs and attempting to teach her statistics.

Sorority girl, fine as f**k, determined, ball buster… these are the things I knew about her. What I didn’t know is that she is all the things I didn’t realize I wanted or needed.

Or that one semester with her would change everything.

REVIEW

I am an absolute sucker for New Adult and College Sports Romance series, so I’m very happy I found this one! Let me just say, there is something so real about this this story. Wes’ journey with basketball and life in general is just so relatable for people trying to find their place. Blair’s tenacity is hilarious, but also just pulls you into the story. The development of friendship between these two kept me enthralled to the very end.

Another thing that really added to this story were the side characters! Blair and Gabby’s friendship is something I want more of! Her friend Vanessa and Mario’s budding relationship. And then there are Wes’ friends, who I absolutely love. Z is this basketball god, but he’s so quiet and mysterious, and I can’t wait to find out more about him. Joel Moreno is always the life of the party, but you just know there is more to his story–which we luckily get in book two: The Fadeaway!
