Lover of fluffy kitties and Star Wars.

The most talented football player in the country.
Just ask him.
Too bad for him Delaney's sworn off dating athletes forever after her last heartbreak.
But Maverick wants more than one night and refuses to give up on winning Delaney’s heart. She isn’t one to be fazed by a set of broad shoulders.
After the semester ends, will the bad boy land the nerd girl or will the secrets they keep from each other separate them forever?
Adored this college romance!
"He's perfection. He's air. Which I desperately need right now, because I can't breathe."
Delaney met Maverick in her freshman year. There's attraction. There's chemistry. He makes an impression on her for a few reasons. However, they have no real interaction until a couple of years later. Even though she's not in a good place, there's no denying the attraction she has to him.
"Maybe I've been waiting two years for you to be free so I could ask you out."
Maverick was hugely taken with Delaney when he first met her, however, he messed up his chance to get to know her. When she's available again, he's determined not to let her get away. Unfortunately, he's got his work cut out for him, as she's sworn off football players.
"It's going to take a million hook-ups to get you out of my head.."
This story had everything I love in a college romance: great characters, sparkling banter, sizzling chemistry, a touch of angst, and a happy resolution.
Emerson is sooooo cocky! I loved his confidence and how it masked the pain and issues he carried with him. Delaney is adorable! I loved her interests and quirks. I loved how, in spite of her nerdy personality, she couldn't resist a dare. It really showed how gutsy and brave she was under her good girl exterior. I loved the banter between them. They were funny and witty, flirtatious, and so sexy! They had fabulous chemistry and I desperately wanted them to get it on!
Such a deliciously fun and sexy read. Thoroughly recommend!
