The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love

Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?

Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…

Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she’s shut him down. Completely.
That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It’s a good thing Drew knows all about winning.

Bailey’s Comet – a flaming shooter with a dash of cinnamon on top.

I became attached to the characters mainly because of how the story was intensely told. There was a sureness and clarity with the way the scenes and lines were written. When Anna and Drew were teasing and being sweet, I smiled and laughed like a maniac. When they were making love, I was turned on! And when they were struggling and fighting, I carried a load on my shoulders. You know that reader experience when you feel like you’re an intruder? I felt that!

I was honestly not a big fan of Anna’s personality though, particularly her lack of confidence and indecisiveness. But I adored Drew Baylor’s no holds barred temperament. Even if their personalities are on opposite ends sometimes, their chemistry was palpable that I hated it when they were not together. I was just nearing the end of the first half of the book and I felt like they’ve been through a lot already. This is one of those books that you don’t want to rush and you just want to savor the moments, because it feels like you already know what will happen but you’re still looking forward to it?! But a warning to those who’s not into instalove, this might not be for you. Me? No problem with that as long as it stirs my emotions! During the last few chapters, I felt a burning sensation that at first stung but nearing the end it just fizzled out and warmed my heart instead! Can’t wait to read more by Kristen Callihan!
