Jockblocked (Gridiron #2) by Jen Frederick @JenSFred
Wow Matty surprised me and stole my heart. I
didn't like Matty very much as far as boyfriend material in the previous book Sacked. I simply
don't like guys who would share a girl. I want them possessive. So I had to
just dive in and hope it’s because he had never wanted to actually call a girl
his and his alone until Lucy
Well Matty definitely was possessive over Lucy. He didn't even like saying her
name in the same sentence as another guy especially her BFF Ace.
Ok side note. Ace is disgusting and I've never hated a character this much in a
long time. There is zero chance I'd think he could redeem himself.. He is a dog
OK back to Matty and Lucy
I feel like this story pulled at my heartstrings a lot. Probably because I do
believe in redemption I had high hopes that Matty would be one of those playboy heroes who changes his ways once he falls hard. I definitely got that
here. I loved how no girl compared once he laid eyes on Lucy.
What bugged me was Lucy constantly being so scared and insecure. Then when
she's finally where she should be.. Matty puts himself in a bad situation and
then they both act stupid over it. I read those chapters with my heart in my
throat so afraid that they'd destroy what they built. I loved the reunion and
the ending. I honestly hope that we see more of them in future books. Just
please please please can we have less drama from insecurity and other women?
This author is brilliant and her stories stand on their own without that mess.
Her relationships build on true emotional connection and it's not necessary to
try to throw in angst to just cause drama. The sweet sincere way Matty cared
about Lucy's health was refreshing and that's what I enjoyed the most.
4 stars.. I want more..now
