She’s always played it safe

College junior Lucy Washington abides by one ruleavoid risk at all costs. She’s cautious in every aspect of her life, from her health, to her mock trial team, to the boring guys she dates. When a brash, gorgeous jock walks into the campus coffeeshop and turns his flirt on, Lucy is stunned by the force of attraction. For the first time ever, she’s willing to step out of her comfort zone, but can she really trust the guy who’s determined to sweep her off her feet?

He’s always played around

Entering his last year of college eligibility, linebacker Matthew "Matty" Iverson has the team captaincy in his sights. And it’s his for the taking, if he can convince his quarterback Ace Anderson to give up the starting position. Luckily, Matty already has an edge
the hottie he’s lusting over just happens to be Ace’s childhood best friend. Getting Lucy on his side and in his bed? Hell yeah. Matty is more than confident he can have both, but when he falls hard for Lucy, it’s time for a new game plan: convince the woman of his dreams that she’s not sleeping with the enemy.

 Lucy is busy with college. She loves her mock trial classes and studying. She loves having a plan and a pro and con list and risk assessments for everything.
That's why she only dates 'safe' guys. Other guys, hot, popular guys, would be too dangerous.
And especially hot, adorable and smart football players are strictly forbidden by her best childhood friend Ace. The quarterback isn't allowed to date her roommates, and she's not allowed to date his teammates.

But that pact was made before she met Matt Iverson.
He's such an adorable, flirty, fun and hot guy!
She shouldn't start anything with him. Because...RISKY!
But he doesn't stop showing up at the coffee place where she's working - and he hates coffee!!!
It's really hard to resist him - this will probably be the first time she has to break one of her promises and go against everything in her carefully planned life.

But does one-night stand expert Matty deserve that chance?
He wants to deserve it, but after he finds out that Lucy is best buddies with his QB, things take a turn for the worse..... Because Matt has been tasked with persuading Ace to change positions on the team - Coach has his eyes set on another up-and-coming Highschool QB susperstar!

Will the QB problem stop Matty & Lucy's love story before it even began??

I'm not telling you that of course...


This book was amazing!
Matty was already this hilarious background noise in SACKED, and he's even better now.
He's not your typical dumb jock. He's smart, he's good at school and he's such an adorable and funny flirt!
Lucy doesn't stand a chance!!!!


Even though it's totally unnatural for Matt to only want one girl for mor than a night, he wants Lucy. He could have every girl in a 1000 mile radius - he's a football star after all - but he wants her. Probably because she's not one of those always willing jersey chasers.... And it's sooo adorable to watch them. To watch Lucy try to resist Matty's charms ... he's so sweet with her. And the way he handles her health problems is adorable too! I loved those two together!

Also amazingly funny is Hammer - with those girl magazine colums he's writing!!! I loved him!
I really hope he'll be the star of the next book!!

Again, like with SACKED, I think, that a good editor could've cut a few pages of words out of the story - there was a bit too much about that Mock Trial stuff and a bit too much bla bla here and there...but I still loved Matty's story very much!!!!

JOCKBLOCKED was an amazingly adorable and funny and sexy romance! I loved watching them flirt and fight their way to their Happy Ever After!
