IT’S NOT EASY LIVING IN YOUR BROTHERS SHADOW.
Jack Dryden-Jones is easily the worst rugby player on the field—when he moves to The States to follow in his brothers footsteps, he has no idea how he’d hate the game. He’s so horrible he considers faking an injury to take himself out of the game.
Jack is a quick-witted, comic book loving gentleman—not an athlete.
DO NOT DATE YOUR ROOMMATES CRUSH.
When her roommate brings home a random stranger, Eliza is shocked when he makes himself at home; he’s strapping, strong and watching a movie at the end of her couch as if he belongs there.
It makes her uncomfortable in the best way possible.
But if there is one thing she believes in, it’s GIRL CODE: No girl may date her friend’s ex, past crush, or guys who have humiliated/used her. And she most certainly may not date any guy her friend currently fancies…
DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Jack and Eliza are two of the good ones—it’s going to take a miracle to keep them apart.
I was eager to read about Ashley’s brother Jack who we met in Jock Royal. And boy did Jack have some hilarious times in this! I mean, first the breakfast where he kept eating and eating and eating, stealing Eliza’s food? And it never said he did, but I sure hope he picked up that tab! His not being good at rugby, only sports like cricket and polo, omg, freaking hilarious. Especially when he actually got out on the rugby field and ran the wrong way.
This book ended with me smiling and loving the relationship between these two. There wasn’t really any huge drama, it was really just an overall sweet, fun, real romance. So much wonderful banter between Jack and Eliza. Honestly the whole girl code thing was not something that was really a big deal once we found out just what Eliza’s roommate Kaylee was really like. There was no sympathy whatsoever for her not too many interactions between her and Jack into the story.
So many funny things that had me laughing. A conversation about toothbrushes, part of the whole debacle where he was eating all of her food at the beginning. Jack is from England, so when he said “jack-arse”, that was amusing and fun to say out loud. And oh my gosh, the “just the tip” game, funny, but really sooooooooo hot!!!! Another one to get someone squirming in their seat as they read!
Loved this one and can’t wait for the next one. Especially with who I think the ending of this one clued us into who it will star.
