Gray doesn’t make friends with women. He has sex with them. Until Ivy.

The last thing star tight-end Gray Grayson wants to do is drive his agent’s daughter’s bubblegum pink car. But he needs the wheels and she’s studying abroad. Something he explains when she sends him an irate text to let him know exactly how much pain she’ll put him in if he crashes her beloved ride. Before he knows it, Ivy Mackenzie has become his best texting bud. But then Ivy comes home and everything goes haywire. Because the only thing Gray can think of is being with Ivy.

Ivy doesn’t have sex with friends. Especially not with a certain football player. No matter how hot he makes her…

Gray drives Ivy crazy. He’s irreverent, sex on a stick, and completely off limits. Because, Ivy has one golden rule: never get involved with one of her father’s clients. A rule that’s proving harder to keep now that Gray is doing his best to seduce her. Her best friend is fast becoming the most irresistible guy she’s ever met.

Which means Gray is going to have to use all his skills to win Ivy’s heart. Game on.

Why do I love Kristen Callihan’s writing so much? There is something to be said about how she brings fantasy to earth, making it seem that you know the characters so well and making you feel that they’ve gone through so much together, with you as a reader. I was only at 40% and I felt so bonded with the Ivy Mac and Gray already. The way she portrays her stories and characters are fairly simple, but damn engaging with everyday humor and struggles that everyone can relate to. Conflicts are clichés but not over the top. Though the ending gave me a big smile and a good tug at the heart. I wish this book didn’t have an epilogue. I wanted their story to go on and on. Rarely do I give very high ratings to romcom or sports romance but this one is sure fire 5 stars for me! And if you are not a big fan of being friend zoned this book might make you reconsider!
