The Assist: A College Sports Romance (Smart Jocks Book 1)
by Rebecca Jenshak
You know those stories where the smart girl tutors the dumb jock? This isn’t it.
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.
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.
The Assist by Rebecca Jenshak was a fantastic story with fantastic narration! Jenshak really puts a twist on the athlete/tutor romance. It’s actually the jock that is the tutor. There isn’t anything sexier than a smart man, and Wes is an athlete too! No wonder Blair fell for him like she did!!!
Both Wes and Blair were great characters. They complemented each other perfectly, making each one better. There wasn’t too much angst. They both have to adjust their life expectations when life throws them a curveball. That is a part of becoming an adult. Wes had a few moments when I wanted to throw something at him, but he does redeem himself. I really enjoyed watching these two fall in love.
I also loved the secondary characters, like Vanessa and Joel. However, my favorite by far was Gabby, Blair’s childhood friend. I really LOVED her, and she is a big reason that Blair is the wonderful person that she is. I’m so glad to see she has her own story in a later book.
The narrators, Ern Mallon and Jason Clarke, were outstanding narrators. I didn’t just enjoy their voices, but they made me believe they were Blair and Wes. They pulled me heart and soul into their story.
I’m so glad I found Rebecca Jenshak, and I’m looking forward to listening/reading more from her!
