Fair Catch (Love and Sports #1) By Meghan Quinn

Training, playing ball and studying is Lexi’s life and it never seems to bother her until her friend, Parker Hill, points out to her that sweat pants on a Friday night while watching sappy romance movies isn’t really living up her last year in college. Lexi didn’t see the need to party since she didn’t know what the hell she was doing with her life after college but her friends wouldn’t take no for an answer. Little did she know going to the first party of the season was going to flip her world upside down. 

Jake Taylor, starting quarterback for Cal U and campus heart throb spent his entire college career, partying, getting drunk and winning football games but it is all finally catching up to him. He is ready to throw in the towel of his partying days when he decides to have one more last fling. That is when he runs into the one person that could turn his life inside out. 

Lexi wants nothing to do with Jake and his partying ways but after one bet gone wrong , she finds herself on a date with the annoyingly obnoxious, egotistical heart throb. Even though she wants nothing to do with him, she finds herself gravitating toward him and giving into his charm. They fall hard and fast for each other as they find love, comfort and a home. They live in their own littler world where nothing matters besides the love they share for each other. 

But love isn’t enough for Lexi when she is trying to find her way after college. She slowly sinks into Jake’s shadow and finds herself clawing out of the Jake sized hole she buried herself in so she can find who she is, who she wants to be and what her future holds for her.

Fair Catch is a true love story that goes through the trials and tribulations of Jake and Lexi’s insecurities, jealousies, short comings and strong personalities. Love is one hell of a strong bond but sometimes, it’s not strong enough. Follow Jake and Lexi as they try to hold on to the love they share while they try to find themselves and find out what life is after graduation.

If you follow my blog and reviews, ya'll know I live my college romances. And, i believe i have just found a new Author love. 

Lexi, has spent the last 3 years of her College life just trying to stay on the right path and graduating, she's a leader for her team on and off the field. Coming into her Senior year her best friend Parker wants her to reinvent herself and have fun and they don't call her "Sexy Lexi" for no reason, the girl just needs to show it. Giving into Parker's requests is a lot harder than Lexi wants to admit, but looking back at having done nothing fun she's ready to step out of her shell and spend the year doing everything she should has been doing all along. Meeting the sexy football star wasn't planned though and how do you keep saying no when he's the first one to ever make you think about saying yes? Lexi's character was stubborn as hell. I don't mean rool your eyes at her i mean the girl was her own person she just needed to loosen up a bit. Her friends were wonderful though and after the home life of her parents she has to deal with, i understand her just wanting to be left alone.

Jake Taylor, has spent the majority of college on the field or in some girls bed. He reputation proceeds him everywhere he goes, this year though he doesn't want to be the same guy as before. He wants to have someone or something meaningful in his life. It's not until going to a party that he realizes all those years have royally fucked him when he see's the girl who is bound to change his world. Jake's character was genuine but very selfish. Meghan did an amazing job entering the mind of a bachelor football player though. You learn all about him and he doesn't hold back, yeah i wanted to beat hiss ass a few times, but then he'd turn around and do something that made me swoon. This guy is never boring i can tell you that much.

The relationship portrayed in this book takes you not just on a HEA that you're hoping for, but what happens when maybe you're not actually meant to be? Do you wait? Move on? I loved how this story played out and the multiple POVs from all the starring characters. I cannot wait to see where the story goes next...

4.5 STARS!!
