    I started this book just because i wanted to check safety and make it to-read, but ended really enjoying it and after awhile i was grinnig like shit.This is your typical college book where the hot guy meet the plain-jane girl. Bee is PT student who is assigned to Cal, the hunky football player who cant be more different than her, and even that i dont like these wallflower heroines i dont mind Bee, yes, she had some self-conscious problems but hell, with parents like hers, who wouldnt? Her father is cheating bastard who treats her mother like crap and of course he was football player so she doesnt think of them much.And Cal... he is definitely on my book-boyfriends shelv, he was just sweet and amazing (and hot, lol). The plot is what you are expecting, you know whats gonna happen next but i wasnt disappointed at all. It was just another resting college book you will enjoy and i love Cal and Bee together, they were perfect, it wasnt insta-love and you have there some development first. The end is more open so i guess there may be another book about them in future and if so i will gladly read it.SAFETY: (view spoiler)[ She is virgin and was kissed before. He is manwhore but i wasnt actually feeling it, i really dont know why. There is big OW drama, OW is trying to get together with Hero, but he is really amazing and trying to get rid of her the best he can. He isnt with anyone else once he sees heroine. Its not insta-love and not even insta-lust, she isnt drop-gorgeous but he is attracted to her.Condoms arent used between them, and i assumed H used them before h.No descriptive sex with OW.

    3.5 StarsOverall Opinion:This was actually better than I thought it'd be. Will it go down as one of my favorites or be one that will stick with me forever? No. But it served its purpose for me in being a light, sexy, college athlete romance. It doesn't get deep into the characters or the storyline, but it was enjoyable. I really think it would've greatly benefited from a jump ahead epilogue into their future when they were older and deeply into their relationship and grown-up lives, but that's just me ;)Brief Summary of the Storyline:This is Bee and Cal's story. They literally bump into each other one morning, and are surprised to find out that Bee has been assigned to work on Cal's case because she is a PT student. Cal is the star football player that has injured his knee and is having a hard time adjusting to not playing. Bee has a father that played in the NFL, and has sworn herself off of football players. They dance around each other some, have some sexy times, deal with family and ex drama...but they get a HFN ending.POV: This alternated between Bee and Cal's POV.Overall Pace of Story:Good. I wanted more in the end (when do I not?!? ;D), but otherwise it flowed well and I never skimmed.Instalove: No. I felt like hey had sufficient time to develop feelings.H rating: 4 stars. Cal. I liked him. I felt like he really cared for the h, and he was sweetly protective too.h rating: 3 stars. Bee. I felt really bad for her circumstances with her parents, but I also had some frustration with her pushing the H away at times.Sadness level: Low. No tissues required.Push/Pull: Yes (view spoiler)[ The h is concerned because she has sworn to herself that she'd never be with a football player because of what she experienced with her pro-playing father. The H does most of the pursuing. (hide spoiler)]Heat level: Moderate. They have good chemistry and scenes.Descriptive sex: Yes.Safe sex: Yes. Mentions of std status and birth control. No mention of previous practices that I remember.OW/OM drama: Yes (view spoiler)[There is an ex of the H that comes around and causes issues for the couple. She won't back off, and the H is never tempted by her and verbally adamant that it is over.(hide spoiler)]Sex scene with OW or OM: NoCheating:NoSeparation: NoPossible Triggers: Mild (view spoiler)[Kidnapping, virgin h, cheating dad, and alcoholism (in side character). (hide spoiler)]Closure: This had ok closure, but I really wanted a farther jump into their future and see them as a secure couple. I'd call this a HFN ending.How I got it: I got it on loan through booklending.comSafety: I'd say this is probably Safe for most readers.(view spoiler)[- Does Not have cheating- Does Not have a descriptive sex scene with OW/OM-Does have the h pushing the H away-Does Not have a separation between the h and H-Does Not have abuse-Does Not have OTT sad parts- Does Not have a HEA ending (hide spoiler)]

    This book had a lot of potential but the h ruined it for me. I got tired of Bee being so spineless when it came to her father. I also got tired of her constantly assuming all football players were not worth her time because of her past experiences. She came across as pathetic to me and it got old quickly.

    Ok so this book was a big miss for me. Main issue was everything was BEYOND rushed, I mean I've read books with insta-love that went at a better pace. There was no development of the characters and the "problematic" plot twists just came off as highly unrealistic or even slightly believable. Bottom line is, for me this was a big fat no, sorry... But not really

    1.5 stars Didn't like Bee.Unnecessary drama.No time to get into a relationship with them. Everything was just too quick.

    I liked this. It was a quick fun read. I really liked Bee. And I liked Cal a lot too. The storyline wasn't original but I still really enjoyed it so that's a win in my book.

    It took me a while to finish this book, which is not a sign of a really great read. It was kind of boring for the first 60% and then suddenly there’s an asshole father (is that a prerequisite in NA to have an asshole dad?) and a totally psycho ex-gf and the story veered off in a completely unexpected but not entirely welcome direction. I really liked the heroine but I wish the story had been better for her. She deserved better.

    What a fun read.Here we have Bee and Cal. Bee is a PT student who gets Cal assigned as a case for one of her classes; and Cal, a cocky football player, struggling with an injured leg that could potentially end his football career before it even starts. On top of that, Bee has a big distaste of football players, after watching her dad treat her mother and her pretty crappy. So, to say that these guys had hard start would be an understatement, lol.As the story advances, we not only get to know these characters more in depth, but also understand more where they came from, particularly with Bee. Man, her family was a piece of work: a Dad so narcissistic, it’s a wonder he didn’t marry himself; and a mother so hard not to judge tbh, but even though I understood her reasons for staying with that ass, it’s no reason enough to treat her daughter like she was less-than in her (not so) perfect life.Loved their time together, it was fun and just what they needed, helping each other bring the best in the other. I also loved that they didn’t let the drama keep them apart. They both had insecurities that sometimes they let come to the surface, but not enough to end their relationship.There was also a bit of a drama, and oh what drama. Jeez, this guy needs to seriously start screening the people he hangs out with, ‘cause talk about a wack job.The ending was perfect, ‘cause not only it’s HEA, but also leaves the door open to more, I can’t wait for these guys to do awesome in the future. I’m also looking forward to reading the next book in this series and what new characters we can meet.All in all, a great start of a new series.*Thank you to the author and Frog Prints Publishing for providing an ARC in exchange of my honest opinion*

    I have always been a huge fan of Christine Bell since I read her first book - Hell, I am an actual character in on her books! LOL But Christine just has a way with her writing that makes me feel all mushy and gooey when I read her books and I love it!Score is the first book in her newest series, Skin in the Game. It's a NA sports romance and Christine definitely starts this series off well.Bee is a PT student who's in her final year of college and has to do some "hands-on" if she wants to continue on to medical school. Cal is the star wide receiver who injured his knee and who is also assigned to Bee.Bee and Cal are two different people when it comes to college life. She sticks to her books and getting good grades, where Cal barely passes and is there on a football scholarship. These two couldn't be more different if they tried. There chemistry isn't instant but it's the way they interact together that keeps them coming back. It's like the itch can never be satisfied enough.I loved the way this played out and how it wasn't instant. Cal proved he was nothing like she expected. And Bee showed him that good girls know how to have fun too. I really enjoyed the way Christine had this all fall into place and even added the bump near the end - I was expecting something to happen, but not that. Very nice addition. And the humor in this was the perfect added touch - it made everything feel more natural.I am looking forward to see what Christine brings us in the next installment.

    This is my first NA book by this author but I really like her writing. Bee and Cal were great characters and I liked that we got to see more depth to them as the story moved forward. The book was pretty light and cute, which was exactly what I was in the mood for, and the hint of drama kept it intriguing. My three star rating comes mostly from the fact that the end confused me. The extra drama that got added didn't seem to fit with the rest of the story, and I just wish it had all gone together a little better. Overall, this was a great book for when you're in the mood for an easy NA read.

    A fantastic NA sports story that hooked me right from the start. Cal and Bee are fantastic characters and so much more than they appear at first glimpse. Bee is a physical therapy student who has the misfortune of being assigned to help Cal Samskevitch, the school's star wide receiver, get his knee back into game shape. Bee's opinion of football players is a little less than dirt due to dear old dad. Cal has his whole future hanging on his football career but there is a spark between him and Bee and he's determined to get her to see him rather than just the football playing him.Exceptional writing and characters make this a book you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it.

    This is the first time I've read this author. It wasn't bad at all.My first thought when I started reading?: *groan* This isn't Hockey. Football is not Hockey. I don't like Football.However, there wasn't too much football, and it was enjoyable. I liked Cal. He wasn't an ass, but also wasn't too perfect.I liked Bee. She was smart. I was able to identify with her.The baddie? Yeah, that was some cray cray. However, it worked. It didn't feel toooooo outlandish.I think I'll gladly continue reading the series, and mayhaps the rest of her works.5 stars because at no point did I find myself disliking the book.

    Definitely a great read.I liked this one a lot more than Knocked Up, I mean the virgin trope again was a bit much but Bell took her time with the characters in this story allowing the reader to become invested in their successes, failures and relationships. Again I'll mention two virgin female a row is pushing it. I get that their are college virgins out there, but I don't know I'm not in the generation that somehow respects a female lead more for being virginal and hooking up with the player who gives up his man who really ways because he's so touched by the gift of her precious flower. I mean nothing against virgins but when I read one all I hear in my head is Really? Seriously? You went there? I'd say we've finally reached a period in history where it's socially acceptable for a woman to be as experienced as a man and I like it when the books I read reflect that so the virgin lead is always points off for me. Additionally I would have liked more of a play by play than a montage of his recovery so that we'd have more time to witness the little moments that made them more than strangers. However overall it was a good story and I enjoyed reading it.

    This book is great! A few humorous spots that make the story flow so well. I love the way the enemies to friends to lovers came about. Love seeing the story progress and the surprise towards the end was the perfect touch. So happy with the way it ended and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

    AwesomeThis is my first book from this author and I absolutely loved the story line and the characters. I am reviewer so I try to never hold it against the author for misspelled words. I did not like how the story ended, I wished the author would continue their story thru an epilogue to find out what happened with their life.

    Loved It! So this is my first review, but I have read tons of books I was pulled in right away, and could not put it down. I loved the little twist near the end. Part of me wishes there was a second book, because I did not want it to end.

    Felt similar to many other college-set NA stories I've read. There are alternating first person narrators, hero is a football player who is a good guy, the heroine is an ugly duckling (who really isn't) and there is an evil ex-girlfriend. It was nothing new, was enjoyable.Freebie from kindle

    No cliffhangerStandaloneTold from both POVsNo major editing issuesThis isn't the first book I have read by this author but this wasn't on par with her other books. This one was good, it just wasn't great. It couldn't seem to keep my attention. The storyline was good don't get me wrong, just didn't have the character development I was looking for and some things were just glossed over and never had closure.Cal Is a star wide receiver. Bee is the "cubby" introvert. Definitely a storyline I have heard before.They are thrust together when Bee becomes Cal's PT. there are sparks there but Bee thinks she isn't good enough for Cal.Throw in a psycho ex girlfriend and a walk in freezer and craziness ensues.Like I said, good not great. I'm happy it was a free book.
