When Nick Jackson, the Mustangs' new rookie quarterback, swoops in like her savior, all she wants to do is fall into his arms. There’s just one problem... she’s sworn off football players and men for good. He...

    I love Jen Frederick but this could have been SO much better. Please for all that is holy EDIT and when you are unsure, EDIT it again!!!! I've highlighted some of my favorites, so no excruciating details here. If you want to be bored, check out my highlights and notes.I like heroines who show a backbone and Lainey was a freaking jelly fish. Ummm, anyone can do math, so shove Chip's face in that. Regardless of how you ended up at the party and wha...

    Lainey and Nick are everything I love about sports romance. He is just sweet, hot perfection and Lainey is such a great character. Strong, funny and determined to give her daughter a better life. I have a soft spot for a single mum finding a great guy. Really loved this one

    Sigh. I have loved several of Ms. Frederick’s books, so it saddens me to say this is not one of them. Lainey and Nick have potential, but the story is sketched out and really needs some editing. It began as a little extra content for newsletter readers, and it shows. It really needs editing. Usually I can ignore small typos, punctuation issues but this is very noticeable. Names are switched at point between Lainey and her daughter Cassidy, the ...

    I am actually a little disappointed. To be completely fair if I wasn't in a book slump the things that I am hung up on in this book are things I probably would have glossed over and ignored. But since I am in that mood where all I want to do is read but I don't know what I want to read except that it's not the thousand plus books on my kindle.So what was my issue here? Nothing and everything. I liked the characters I just didn't love them. There ...

    This story takes place along side The Charlotte Chronicles and I really enjoyed getting both sides to certain situations.Full review to follow

    60% into the book and there’s still nothing going on with the H/h. They haven’t kissed, there’s no slow burn, or any kind of relationship development. More than half the book is about the creep of a dead beat dad, football, and the heroine taking care of her daughter. There’s nothing happening with their relationship and it’s as if they’re just friends hanging out. I’m totally lost as to how this is romance when most of the book doe...

    Sooo... funny story. I have no idea how this landed on my Kindle, whether I accidentally bought it, whehter someone sent it to me, I don't know. I just turned my kindle on one day and there this book was. So thank you, my lucky star.I looooved this book. At first I believed it would just be the usual sportsromance and single mother trope, but with its longish time span covered and the characters meeting again it became something more.The characte...

    Nick and Lainey's storyI'm so happy we got to read Nick and Lainey's story. They're so cute together and after seeing them in the Charlotte Chronicles, I really wanted to see them end up together. I read this all in one sitting because it was so good and sucked me in. Chip was a huge douche and I'm so happy Nick was there to love Lainey and take care of her. Loved this book and all Jen's books.

    I am angry. Beyond anything I am angry. How could u write such an amazing blurb and then the book is beyond fkd up and not even proof read. I can't believe this is the same author that wrote Want You. Honestly it has the potential to be amazing and so good but it badly badly badly BADLY needs editing. Cassidy is often Charlie and Lainey. Sometimes Lainey is written as Cass. No. And the fact that the whole baby thing was done so weirdly.. Babies l...

    It pains me to say I didn’t like this book as much as I have other Jen Frederick books. Full review to come.

    Voilà une petite romance sans aucune prétention qui met en scène des personnages maintenant bien connus de la romance contemporaine : des sportifs et tout particulièrement un quarterback, le joueur vedette d’une équipe de football américain.La romance n’est pas inoubliable mais agréable à lire hormis un fait important qui est signalé dès le départ et dont je pourrai parler.Lainey est une jeune femme que la vie n’a pas gâtée.

    3 1/2 STARS ⭐⭐⭐✨I had no clue this was the second book in a series as it does not say it anywhere except Goodreads so I didn’t read The Charlotte Chronicles. First let me say that there were a lot of grammar mistakes which were annoying as hell and also the main female character Lainey was called Cass (her daughter’s name) several times which was annoying and confusing. Lainey was a complete doormat and I wanted to strangle her most o...

    The premise of this book is great but it needs a lot of work. A lot. It was very disjointed and it felt rushed. I just didn’t get it, which is unfortunate.

    Nick likes to get points across where his woman is concerned, “making sure that Cass’s nanny knows that the only woman in this place that I want in my bed is you.” Nick sometimes takes things a little too seriously, “what are you gonna do? Have you brother’s SEAL team take him out?”He’s silent for so long that I nudge him with my shoe. “Nick!” I liked this book, I really loved Nick.

    Rated 3.5 StarsI ran through a gamut of emotions while reading Lainey's List. At times I was annoyed. Or so very angry, those angry times usually were because of Chip, man I hated that motherfucker. Nick and Lainey made me angry too because of choices they made or didn't make but my anger for them was never on the level as what it was for Chip. Just thinking about him now is getting me angry. Sometimes sad, other times so giddy with happiness but...

    Considering some of the reviews I glimpsed for this book before I started to read, I'm glad I didn't let the reviews put me off. People mentioned that the book was riddled with typos, but I'm not sure if that was an earlier edition, or other people's idea of "riddled' is very different to mine. There were some typos, sure, but I only have 11 highlights, and usually if a book is actually riddled I will end up with way more highlights/notes on my K...

    Doormat heroine alert!!! Step away if you hate this kind of character! Weak and pathetic.The hero though, outstanding!* for heroine**** for heroThe story itself have lots of holes:1. The bad guy behaviour without others questioning why2. the heroine accept the bad behavior from the bad guy without anyone niticing3. the heroine keep running away (yuck!)4. the hero seems so passive the whole time which is bad for my taste. Not this one. Sorry

    I enjoyed this book. I'm a big fan. The reason for not being a 5 star, the editing. I hope she is working on an update. This book was so good even with the mess ups but would have been perfect without them. To me they weren't huge, but distracting, for me it messed up the flow.

    2.5. I realize it was a serial but it was very choppy and the plot didn't make sense at times. I find that Jen Frederick is very hit or miss for me.
