    This is my favorite of the series so far It managed to edge out Maddoc and Ivan s book for the top spot.George is a cute guy who teaches fourth grade and is passionate about his work Darren is a soon to be ex football player, injured in the prime of his career He s got a chance to be the host for a sports show but Darren can barely read or write That s where George comes in.Right from the beginning I loved George He s a little nerdy, pretty witty and loves being a teacher What I loved most This is my favorite of the series so far It managed to edge out Maddoc and Ivan s book for the top spot.George is a cute guy who teaches fourth grade and is passionate about his work Darren is a soon to be ex football player, injured in the prime of his career He s got a chance to be the host for a sports show but Darren can barely read or write That s where George comes in.Right from the beginning I loved George He s a little nerdy, pretty witty and loves being a teacher What I loved most about George is the way he handles Darren He refuses to back down from the big, hot football player, even when Darren barges in with his attitude George lets Darren know that he ll help only if Darren really wants the help.Darren stole my heart before he even came onto the scene He s young and doesn t have enough education to write out his own checks The scene at George s house where Darren reads the sixth grade book so that George can assess his skill level, just about broke my heart Darren thinks he s stupid, only good at football and worthless if he can t play Man I just wanted to squeeze him People have always thought Darren was good at football and beautiful but no one ever valued him for his mind Everyone knew George was intelligent but never saw him as beautiful, and judge him negatively because he has a bad hip since birth George sees Darren for what s in his heart and his intelligence Darren not only values George s intelligence but he loves his kind heart and his spirit Darren also thinks George is a sexy little thing Both characters are so sweet and vulnerable that I couldn t help but love this book

    2014 Re read Very sweet, this story of a selfless teacher and a nearly illiterate ex football player It s encouraging and happy without going into unrealistic territory.I so enjoy stories that have an actual story to them Heh, a statement like that probably reveals a lot about my usual reading habits This author may have some issues at times with making things exciting or that dreadful, wooden style in his earlier works , but he always has something to communicate.

    I really love how George quickly sees Darren s strengths and works to help him identify what he needs He is so supportive in helping Darren overcome his difficulties I also live the way that Darren finds to pay George back at the end of the story Darren shows a lot of growth through the story.

    I m scarred, I m scared, and I have nowhere else to turn Sounds kind of ominous For Darren White, life is scary He s got a secret and if the world finds out, he ll be toast Lucky for him there s George and this crazy little thing called love When I open a book by Andrew Grey, I know I ll be entertained The dialogue is witty and flows well The descriptions are exciting and drew me right into the story Oh, and then there are the characters Mr Grey writes characters the reader won t soon I m scarred, I m scared, and I have nowhere else to turn Sounds kind of ominous For Darren White, life is scary He s got a secret and if the world finds out, he ll be toast Lucky for him there s George and this crazy little thing called love When I open a book by Andrew Grey, I know I ll be entertained The dialogue is witty and flows well The descriptions are exciting and drew me right into the story Oh, and then there are the characters Mr Grey writes characters the reader won t soon forget I haven t I came into the story wanting a good time, with a little heart string pulling, and I got so muchDarren is a guy I couldn t help but root for I won t give away any secrets, but the guy s got a lot going on and he s overwhelmed He s realistic which is relatable He s like guys I know clumsy with emotion, but when he s got game, he s got game And then there s George I taught school for a while, so I quickly identified with him trying to make the best of what life s handed him and still make a difference with the fourth graders he teaches Reading about him made me smile often I have to give him props for patience Being a teacher, he s got the patience of a saint anyway, but I liked how he was kind without being pompous with Darren And when these two men get together forthan a chat over coffee The pages sizzled I immensely liked the build up Mr Grey writes love scenes that aren t graphic but I can feel the emotion as if I were one of the players in the room It s that intense If you want a read with equal parts heat and heart, you need to read Crunch Time 4.5 cherries all the way originally posted at

    Ahhh this was my favorite book of the series Books 1 3 were so similar, I almost stopped reading the series, but this book did break the mold George is a 4th grade teacher and is great at it When Lonnie, yes, Lonnie the annoying big mouth, asks George to help a friend, he isn t sure what he s signing up for He s surprised when he finds out that a Philadelphia Eagle player has been permanently injured and needs help to prepare for a job as a TV show host When he finds out that Darren strug Ahhh this was my favorite book of the series Books 1 3 were so similar, I almost stopped reading the series, but this book did break the mold George is a 4th grade teacher and is great at it When Lonnie, yes, Lonnie the annoying big mouth, asks George to help a friend, he isn t sure what he s signing up for He s surprised when he finds out that a Philadelphia Eagle player has been permanently injured and needs help to prepare for a job as a TV show host When he finds out that Darren struggles with reading and barely struggled through school, coasting on his football player status, George has his work cut out for him I really, really, enjoyed this book It has some serious topics and wasn t just about guys checking out each other in the gym like the previous books I really liked both George and Darren and unlike the first books in the series, I could really feel their connection build I also adored the ending.Additionally, like the first book, this book showed me glimpses of the Lonnie that I liked Someone who really cares about his friends This book is the reason I kept reading this series and didn t quit.I m not sure if this is truly a 5 star book, I think I may have given it 5 stars simply because I was surprised at how much better it was than the rest of the series

    For some reason I m really drawn to this series I think I like the short and to the point part of the story All of the characters mesh really well together Sadly we didn t get to see much of the other characters in the series George was really likeable and caring in the way that he was there for Darren Darren was a mess at the beginning and with alittle bit of help from George was able to get himself back together If you have read the books before this and enjoyed them, then you will p For some reason I m really drawn to this series I think I like the short and to the point part of the story All of the characters mesh really well together Sadly we didn t get to see much of the other characters in the series George was really likeable and caring in the way that he was there for Darren Darren was a mess at the beginning and with alittle bit of help from George was able to get himself back together If you have read the books before this and enjoyed them, then you will probably enjoy this one too Happy Reading
