Knox Maguire is the king of our college campus.

Star offensive tight end on the football team.

He is the complete opposite of me in every way.

I'm quiet. He's loud.

I'm shy. He's definitely not.

Everyone loves him. No one knows me.

Fresh out of a breakup, I don't really trust him, and why should I? Knox is the ultimate player. When I become his English tutor, I tell myself we need to keep things between us strictly business. Watching my mother deal with my ex-athlete father long, long ago taught me to stay far away from that type of man.

Yet Knox is impossible to resist. Next thing I know, we're getting hot and heavy in the library—and that was never part of the plan. When Knox admits he can't stop thinking about me, I have a realization.

I can't stop thinking about him either.

Instead of keeping my distance, I pull him in closer. Until somehow, we're spending all of our time together and I find myself falling for Knox. Hard.

Will this actually work between us? Or am I getting played?

Another great read from Monica Murphy! ~ Jennifer – Simply Love Books


I honestly cannot describe how much I loved this story. Knox Maguire is one of the stars of his college football team. Girls fall all over him, but he meets one that doesn’t and he is intrigued. Everything has come easy to him, except English. Having to finally take a class he has been putting off, he decides to get a tutor to help. When the tutor turns out to be the girl, Joanna Sutton, he decides to go after what he wants. After being dumped by her long time boyfriend, she is not even looking to get involved with anyone, especially the big man on campus. As she helps him with his class, they grow closer. I really loved the story the secondary characters and I am really looking forward to more about them. There was not much angst in this story, just a sweet, fun romance story.
