“An athletic scholarship. You had to play a game to get here and you continue to play a game to stay here.”

This was a new-adult story about what happened to Ryan after his break-up with Maddy in book 1.

“I thought we were dating again.”
“What? You did? We never talked about that.”

Ryan seemed quite a loyal sort of person, and it was nice that he was going to college for an education rather than to party and have sex.

“If I never see a football in person after college, I’d be okay with that.”

The storyline in this was about the romance mainly, and there was a bit of going over old ground again, as the first 20% was some of the events from book 1 from Ryan’s point of view.
The romance happened between Ryan and a girl called Lindsay, and she was quite a sweet girl. I felt really sorry for her when it seemed like Ryan was totally blind to her feelings.

“We were just talking about how I’m broken. And how I don’t want a relationship.”
“I don’t either. Not even a little bit. That’s why it’s perfect.”
“Why what is perfect?”
“This. We can hook up or whatever and just be friends. No pressure. No relationship.”

The ending to this was pretty happy, and I was glad that things seemed to be working out for Lindsay and Ryan.

  1. It's not very often you come across a story about a football player who's just in it for the scholarship. Anyway, at least the ending was happy, right?
