Steamroller by Mary Calmes
About the last thing Vincent Wade expected was for Carson Cress to ask him out. Vince is a dedicated biology student and a bit of a loner. Superstar quarterback Carson is larger than life, and he lives under a public microscope. There’s no way they should work. But Vince is learning that sometimes people just come steamrolling into your life and all you can do is hang on for the ride or lose your heart in the process. If their relationship can survive the fallout when an injury derails Carson’s future plans, maybe Vince can finally find something to believe in.
Ok I just have to start this by saying...BEST FIRST KISS EVER!!!
Vince and Carson may have gotten off on the wrong foot when they meet, but things heat up quickly. Vince tries to tell the sexy quarterback no but Carson only has eyes for the uber smart biologist and he quickly steamrolls right over any qualms Vince may have.
To some people Vince might have come off as an ass, but I loved his snarky attitude. His need to feed the world is in such contrast to his personality, it makes for a funny read. His reservations that Carson could ever really care for him are so believable considering his family.
Carson could be any big time quarterback on a university campus, so many of them are playing more for other people than themselves. I loved how he wasn't afraid to lose it all just so he could be with Vince. He had made up his mind and Vince was going to be his!
This book worked for me on so many levels I like the jock and the geek story line but the depth that Ms. Calmes took this story made it so much more.
RATING: 5 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries. This book was given to us by Dreamspinner Press. Many thanks.
