Down by Contact (The Barons, #2)

Two rival football players begin a game with higher stakes than the Super Bowl in this steamy romance from the author of Illegal Contact. Simeon Boudreaux, the New York Barons’ golden-armed quarterback, is blessed with irresistible New Orleans charm and a face to melt your mama’s heart. He’s universally adored by fans and the media.

    4 stars!!! I love a good enemies to lovers story, especially one with good back and forth banter. Down to You is one of those books that gripped me from the start and didn’t let go. This is the first book of Santino Hassell’s I’ve read, and I can’t wait to read more!Adrián and Simeon don't get along. They are on rival football teams and there is bad blood between them. When they get aggressive with each other and both end up suspended, t...

    Full review now posted! 1/8/18 4 stars! “It was perfect. He was perfect. We were perfect together.” Adrian and Simeon are enemies on rival football teams. They snark at each other during games, call each other out on social media and can’t stand the sight of each other. Simeon is a openly gay football player and Adrian seems to be anti-gay. When the two of them get into trouble on the field they are forced to spend time together workin...

    5 Stars!I loved the first book and was excited when I got an ARC for this one. I couldn't wait to read about Simeon. I love the friendship that these three have. You have Brawley who is the protector of the group, Marcus who seems to be the softy and the most level headed, then we have Simeon who is the jokester of the group and gets himself in trouble a lot because he says and does things before thinking them through. They balance each other out...

    ***I have read two book by this author and I loved them. I have noticed that ratings and reviews for the author's books keep disappearing from GR and most of you probably know the reason. I have decided to leave everything as it is. I don't applaud bad behaviours, but I still liked the books.***The book is based on my favorite enemies to lovers trope. “God, I hate you.”No, you just hate that you want to fuck me this badly. Adrián Bravo an...

    DOWN BY CONTACT is the best thing I've read all year. Now don't go rolling your eyes. I know we're only three days into 2018 but hey. My point stands.Adrián gave me big, owlish eyes. He was so boyishly adorable it was hard to hate him for long periods of time. I solved that little dilemma by reminding myself that he was a douche canoe.I've still not yet read any of Hassell's other solo works since finishing book one in The Barons series and hone...

    4,25 starsI adore Santino Hassell's writing style! He's one of my favorites authors and it's always a real struggle waiting for the release of every book by him. I absolutely adored Illegal Contact and the excerpt that we got at the end of it, from Down by Contact, made me want to read this one like yesterday!!! So imagine my huge expectations. I also reread Illegal Contact right before Down by Contact's release. Now I start to think it was not a...

    3.5 Stars!I really didn't think I could like Adrian. Ever. But somehow by the end I did. Unfortunately, I just never did love Adrian or Simeon. But it's Santino Hassell. And it's football.

    This was really enjoyable... Simeon & Adrien had a love hate relationship. Playing on rival teams, trash talking on social media then losing their cool in a practice match which led to a six week suspension. Forced together to support a youth Centre Simeon and Adrien began to realize they actually had more in common than they thought. As they shared deeper feelings after a few “dares” both men realized they were clearly hooked on each other. ...
