Kip Carmichael is no pretty boy.
He’s a rough. Dirty. Giant. Hair so unruly, and a beard so thick, his friends on the team call him Sasquatch.
The first time Sasquatch lays eyes on Theodora “Teddy” Johnson across the keg at a party one night on Jock Row, she’d been relegated to the sidelines by her jock hungry “friends.”
Week-after-week, he watches beautiful but bashful Teddy getting overshadowed, and overlooked. Sasquatch finally broad shoulders his way through the crowd, offering to to be her hairy godmother. But the minute their eyes meet? He’s a goner.
Teaching her the RULES for winning a jock will be the easy part. Not falling in love with her is going to be a losing game.
A Top Read in Romantic Comedy
Sara Ney has given her readers another sweet, sexy, and funny romance!!!!
Kip and Teddy couldn’t be more opposite from one another. He tends to stand out in a crowd. He is well over 6 feet tall and his beard makes him look like Sasquatch. Teddy is a sweet girl, and she tends to not stand out like her friends whose mission in life is to snag a jock. As soon as Kip sees her, he knows she is something special and doesn’t belong at these “jock” parties. After weeks of watching her, he approaches, and he is quite surprised she isn’t intimidated by him or his size. The two strike up an unlikely friendship with him offering to be her “hairy godmother” and help her feel comfortable in her own skin. Neither one ever realize how complicated this friendship is about to become…..
Ney has a way of pulling me in heart and soul into her books. This one is no different. I was completely immersed in Kip and Teddy’s story. They were both characters that were unique and very likeable. Kip is somewhat like the beast in Beauty and the Beast. Although, he isn’t unattractive like the beast. However, it’s his demeanor that scares people off. He doesn’t have any friends except for his sister and now, Teddy. I could understand why he shunned people, and I was so glad that he knew pretty much from the beginning that Teddy was worthy of his trust.
Of course, Teddy is somewhat like Beauty even though people overlook her beauty, except Kip. He has an uncanny ability to see through people’s pretensions and see them for who they are. He instantly knows Teddy is a good person. She might seem a bit shy, but she doesn’t have a problem not letting Kip get away with his “stuff.” She is independent, smart, and she sees past all of Kip’s defensiveness, wearing down his resistance day by day, even if she doesn’t realize it.
One of my favorite things in the book was the banter between these two. They are pretty funny together, and once the sexual tension is introduced….whoa the butterflies. Ney really knows how to use that to her advantage, and she is an expert at it. She seems to know exactly when her characters need to finally give in. That is just one of her many talents as a writer!
I have only discovered Sara Ney this year, and my only disappointment is I hadn’t discovered her sooner. Not only do I love the stories she spins and the unforgettable characters, but I really like her style of writing. She never overuses angst. In the books I have read, there really isn’t a lot of that. They are about finding your soulmate and falling in love! If you haven’t read anything by her, I highly recommend you try one of her books. If you are like me, you will find her becoming one of your very favorite authors!!!!
