He’s like literally the worst.
Oakley Davis is the star running back at our University, and the reason I’ve broken my vow to avoid the college party scene. Thanks to a mixup with my advisor, I’m now serving my Public Relations internship as a glorified babysitter to the party-hard football players.
He’s impossible to manage. His Instagram is full of half-naked, drunk photos and he’d rather attend parties than practice. His brand needs some serious work, and when he’s not driving me insane, he’s sleeping his way through the entire female population.
But I’m determined. I have plans to graduate a semester early and nothing or no one will get in my way. I’m a Virgo, after all. Oakley Davis might be a privileged, cocky, football star, but I’m Amanda Matthews; and I’ll do whatever it takes to get my A.
I have to make sure I don’t end up falling in love with the idiot, first.

Ik heb dit boek ontvangen in ruil voor een eerlijke recensie.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review
I really liked this book. The characters were very likeable and cute. The writers did a great job writing about these characters. I loved the sarcastic undertone full of humor.
Coralee June is not a new author to me, but Carrie Gray is. I hope to be able to read more of her in the future.
“I should have connected the dots. I should have known to run like hell. But I’m a stupid bitch.”
I always like how authors deal with the characters in a sport NA. The girl is often a mentor, used to tame the bad guy, because that is what it comes down to. But men like Oakley are used to getting attention and seks. As soon as a girl comes along who is not interested in him that way, he sees it as a challenge.
At first I thought Oakley was a bit vague at first. But after a few chapters it was clear where this behavior came from.
Amanda was as a strong character, sometimes she felt like she was broken. Not surprising considering her terrible background. Her past was sad and I thought and it made me feel bad. I can’t believe there are such people in the world who can be so rotten from the inside.
One big plus to this book was that Oakley had other priorities than playing pro. I loved that he made different choices for his future because he wanted it and not someone else.
Their discussions brought a smile to my face. Their discussions were so terribly funny, and the statements Amanda made were even funnier. It was therefore very easy to forgive Oakley for his stupid actions.
Oakley and Amanda were the perfect example of two people healing together. And that made the book completely perfect.
“I kinda hated Oakley, but also kinda wanted to do naked hot yoga with him.”
