Synopsis from Goodreads
Kip Carmichael is no pretty boy.
He’s a rough. Dirty. Giant. Hair so unruly, and a beard so thick, his friends on the team call him Sasquatch.
The first time Sasquatch lays eyes on Theodora “Teddy” Johnson across the keg at a party one night on Jock Row, she’d been relegated to the sidelines by her jock hungry “friends.”
Week-after-week, he watches beautiful but bashful Teddy getting overshadowed, and overlooked. Sasquatch finally broad shoulders his way through the crowd, offering to to be her hairy godmother. But the minute their eyes meet? He’s a goner.
Teaching her the RULES for winning a jock will be the easy part. Not falling in love with her is going to be a losing game.
OMG Jock Rule has to be one of the most adorable things Sara Ney has written. I practically swooned all the way through, while it isn’t set at Christmas it is a perfect story to read in the holiday season to ensure the warm and fuzzies are in abundance.
Kip has crafted a persona and appearance in order to keep people away. Having learned the hard way his looks and status can attract people for their own nefarious purposes as opposed to liking him for himself. It is kind of sad when you think about it, and so very lonely.
While Kip is pessimistic about people, Teddy is completely the opposite, always looking for the best in people even when it isn’t there and often resulting in her being treated like a doormat.
Both outsiders in their own way, Kip and Teddy cross paths at a number of party’s held at the rugby house in Jock Row; noticing each other in an irregular fashion. Call it fate or destiny, you can tell Kip and Teddy are the real deal before they even know it themselves.
Although they have very different backgrounds there couldn’t be anyone more perfect for each other because of their genuine and honest natures. They are unique characters that bring out the best in each other 😍 The adorable awkwardness of their intimate interactions added to the overall charm of Jock Rule.
I also loved the relationship between Kip and his sister, Ronnie, with their text messages adding another layer of humour to the narrative.
