Maverick Cruz and I started off as pen pals and became besties when we went to the same sports camp at age twelve.


He rooted for me at my soccer games.

I cheered for him at his hockey tournaments.


Through heartbreaks, new relationships, and failed friendships, we knew we could always count on each other.


That's why no one is more surprised--or panicked-- than I am when I start to develop different feelings for him. But Instead of telling him the truth, I agree to help him find a girlfriend.


Someone who is not me.


Someone who is so opposite of me that I have to make a list for the charade. The problem is, he wants to practice his dating skills with me. The corny pickup lines, the hand-holding, the door opening, the staring.


Before this, I thought sharing a house with him was an excellent idea. Who wouldn’t want to room with their best friend? Now, the close proximity is killing me. What’s worse is that I can’t stop looking at him like he’s a Greek god, and he can’t stop seeing me as his virginal little sister. Still, I push it aside, until one night, when he’s lying beside me in bed and I’m the one who forgets the rules and crosses the line between friends and something more.


It’s a horrible idea. He’s a player. I’m a virgin. Yet, I can’t seem to stop myself.


New item on my list: DO NOT FALL FOR YOUR BEST FRIEND.

Rocky + Maverick

They've been besties since their teachers forced them to be pen pals when they were ten.
He's a college hockey star about to go pro and she's a college soccer player who is also dreming of being a professional athlete ... and she is kinda now realizing that she might probably be in love with her best friend and roommate.
They decided years ago that they would never risk their friendship that way!


This was your typical cute and sexy college sports romance.
I loved reading it.
But it was also a bit ... short? I had the feeling that some editor cut a hundred pages. And then all those people in there. From the first book! I kinda hate when an author doesn't officially call something a series, but it is a series. We meet all the people here and we met all the people in the first book too - which is horrible for my Bookalzheimer brain.
BUT - it wasn't too bad - I still liked reading it.
I just know that I won't remember a thing about the first two couples once Mitchell and Misty's book comes along. 😭

It was a cute little romance. I liked the cast - the parents are really cool!
I didn't hate reading it, but it also wasn't anything new and ΓΌber-amazing.

THE RULEBREAKER was an adorable little college-sports falling-for-your-bestie love story!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own MAVY - this one is MINE!!
