Rating: 4/5 PoP: 58% Campus Legends #1
Dallas Colter is just waiting for the future. He is a keep to himself type of guy but when his boredom leads to him meeting Ryann Winters, he may be willing to venture outside his comfort zone. Ryann Winters is trying to make the best of her college experience but dating is hard especially when your boyfriend seems indifferent. When a fake relationship leads to her spending more time with campus legend, Dallas Colter, her life suddenly seems to be everyone’s business.
I loved the banter between these two. Ryann is rather unaffected by Dallas’ popularity and has no problem putting him in his place. Dallas feels misunderstood by everyone around him, even his brothers. This is marketed as a grumpy/sunshine but I would call it a grumpy/grumpy, but I am more than okay with that. These two have an instant comradery but fall in love in a natural way. The outside world tries and almost breaks them but they know the truth is always more than what we see.
I always love Sara Ney’s new adult romances, I feel like she does an excellent job at capturing the experience of college in an authentic way. It is an age where we are forced to grow and make life changing decisions while still being unsure of who we are. And we see that with these characters, they do not respond the same way someone with more life experience would. But they still figure out what is most important in the end. As the cover indicates these are reministance of Sara’s How to Date a Douchebag Series and also share a tie in with her Accidentally in Love Series but this book stands alone. A good, easy read for any college sport romance fan.
