Batter up! It's time to play with balls 😄

I have not read Masters' Joy Universe series, so all of these characters are new to me, however that was fine, as this was a great standalone.

It is also the type of college romance that I like.  It was not as if they were 40 year old, experience guys in 20 year old bodies.  They were pretty regular young guys, with young guy problems and (mostly) dealing with them in young guy ways.

I loved how Jordan accepted his sexuality when he realised he likes guys, there wasn't some big drama over it (you know how those sports ball guys can be in books). 

But this book was all about Blaise for me. Oh how I adore him so, so much.

Blaise and Jordan go from 0-100 in no time, but I liked how they slowed things down after their meet cute and things grew organically.

I also thought it was great how Jordan's support people embraced Blaise and made him one of their own

I also liked how Jordan didn't take the easy way out when it came to his future and his career, and earned his place, when lesser guys would have used their connections.

And I adored how the guys did this awesome thing (most of the time anyway) and communicated.  They have their speedbumps, but they deal with them and do it pretty well and quite realistically.

I haven't read any of the previous Franklin U series (this series or the previous) but that is going to be rectificed (as well as Masters' Joy Universe books, as I loved the characters we met from there)




Louisa Masters started reading romance much earlier than her mother thought she should. While other teenagers were sneaking out of the house, Louisa was sneaking romance novels in and working out how to read them without being discovered.

Louisa has a long list of places first discovered in books that she wants to visit, and every so often she overcomes her loathing of jet lag and takes a trip that charges her imagination. She lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she whines about the weather for most of the year while secretly admitting she’ll probably never move.
