    Not sure what to say about this one The hero, Bash was a total hottie with a heart The heroine was Ok but difficult to like.And here comes the rub, I didn t like the entire premise of this story The things that went wrong between them, and the way the hero handled himself while he and the heroine were apart was kinda gross The fact that he kept sleeping with this really horrible girl up to when he gets his second change really didn t do it for me.And the heroine d handling of the big reve Not sure what to say about this one The hero, Bash was a total hottie with a heart The heroine was Ok but difficult to like.And here comes the rub, I didn t like the entire premise of this story The things that went wrong between them, and the way the hero handled himself while he and the heroine were apart was kinda gross The fact that he kept sleeping with this really horrible girl up to when he gets his second change really didn t do it for me.And the heroine d handling of the big reveal was completely childish I would love a guy who did something like that for me The gist of my disliking of the story is everything that propels the plot From the heroine never hearing Bash out for years, to him sleeping with a skanky horrible woman to keep a secret from the heroine A secret that turned him into a manwhore to some spoiled woman YUCK

    I have to start out by saying.Bash is definitely not my favorite He actually makes my skin crawl a little bit That s the best way to describe him, for me I did really like Tori, even though her taste in men really is not the best, but since he s the only one she dated and love is blindI forgive her He and Tori date briefly their freshman year of college, before there was a misunderstanding and she wouldn t speak to him any I really felt these two were truly in love and were soulma I have to start out by saying.Bash is definitely not my favorite He actually makes my skin crawl a little bit That s the best way to describe him, for me I did really like Tori, even though her taste in men really is not the best, but since he s the only one she dated and love is blindI forgive her He and Tori date briefly their freshman year of college, before there was a misunderstanding and she wouldn t speak to him any I really felt these two were truly in love and were soulmates, and that s probably why it was painful to read Tori, loved Bash so much, yet she wouldn t give him a chance to explain.not that I think he tried very hard He s a rich and spoiled ass So he spends the next few years sleeping with anything that walks skin crawl , instead of manning up and telling the woman that he supposedly loves the truth For me there is just way to much painful baggage to forgive and forget Too much drama with other womenit was just a lot of work and love shouldn t be that much work, because lets face itit will probably always be that way for them He just can t be trusted with any of the things that count and everyone knows all their historyjust not worth all the damn hassle Even her best friends are keeping major secrets from her, it just felt everyone is against her in this book and only we, as the readers are on her side A bit of an annoying downer Probably would have given it less stars, but it really is well written and he really does love her, as much as he is capable to

    Where do I begin with my thoughts on this book I am not a big fan of sports, especially not football, I just don t understand it enough to like it Going into this book after already reading her Hockey Romance novels which by the way I also love I wasn t worried about the sports aspect of it Jillian doesn t go into to much detail about the sports side of her books She gives you just enough without it feeling overbearing.Roughing is a college football second chance romance told in dual POV f Where do I begin with my thoughts on this book I am not a big fan of sports, especially not football, I just don t understand it enough to like it Going into this book after already reading her Hockey Romance novels which by the way I also love I wasn t worried about the sports aspect of it Jillian doesn t go into to much detail about the sports side of her books She gives you just enough without it feeling overbearing.Roughing is a college football second chance romance told in dual POV from Tori and Bash As you can tell from the synopsis Tori and Bash have a not so happy past with each other.I absolutely LOVED this book Jillian did an amazing job at drawing me in from page one and keeping me absorbed in the story until the very last page.This book is full of heartbreak, love, betrayal, and forgiveness Bash and Tori together is perfect I absolutely fell in love with them and I really hope this will be turned into a series.Roughing is definitely one of my favorite books by Jillian It s definitely in the top three favorite books by her.If you are in the mood for a quick second chance romance read I highly recommend you pick this one up Thank you so much to the author for providing me with an eARC in exchange for my honest review

    Rating 3.5 5So this is a difficult one, I ve read a few of Ms Quinn s books and enjoyed them immensely, and on paper, this is the kind of book that I would definitely pick up A sports romance with a second chance relationship yes please.At the start things seemed to be going well, I was getting really into the story and then it kind of lost me I know I am probably in the minority with this but for me to really get into a second chance romance I really need to see some of the tension from the Rating 3.5 5So this is a difficult one, I ve read a few of Ms Quinn s books and enjoyed them immensely, and on paper, this is the kind of book that I would definitely pick up A sports romance with a second chance relationship yes please.At the start things seemed to be going well, I was getting really into the story and then it kind of lost me I know I am probably in the minority with this but for me to really get into a second chance romance I really need to see some of the tension from the outset and this didn t really have it, it s pretty clear that Tori has been avoiding Bash and later on in the book you get to know some of theserious ramifications, but for me it wasn t quite enough at the start of the book to help set it up properly It all falls into place a bit too easily and without much drama.I did really like Bash, at first he seems like this sure of himself, playboy sports star with plenty money to throw around but as the story continues you begin to see this other side to him He was surprising, it was nice to see that he could be completely selfless, it was something that I hadn t expected and I think it made me warm to him even .Tori, however, just didn t do it for me which was surprising because I usually come away from one of Jillian s booksenamoured with the female than the male There just wasn t enough to her character to really grab me, we re told she s seen as this kind of quirky, artsy type but honestly, it didn t really come across that way at all She was unfortunately a bit two dimensional and I wasn t all that invested in her.Also one of the major factors in the storyline didn t do it for me, which is hard to go into without spoiling things but the secrets between Bash and Harper and how that affects things with his second chance with Tori, I just didn t get that at all Unfortunately, Harper as a character was just too much of a clich for me and I don t think the stake was high enough for this to be as big a problem as it was made to be.I know it sounds critical but I did still enjoy the book, I got easily engrossed in it and the romance was lovely, it s a book I think lots of people will love Even though this one wasn t what I was hoping for, I m still excited to see what Ms Quinn will come up with next.Originally posted on everywhere and nowhere

    I m a huge fan of Jillian Quinn s work and this book shows exactly why It was sweet, humorous steamy A perfect second chance romance story.Tori was beyond destroyed when her and her ex Bash broke up 2 years ago due to a horrible prank that she never let him explain Bash never let go off Tori, he was just biding his time and protecting her from a distance until she gets knocked out by a football to the face and he s done waiting for her to let him explain I loved Bashs persistence no matter I m a huge fan of Jillian Quinn s work and this book shows exactly why It was sweet, humorous steamy A perfect second chance romance story.Tori was beyond destroyed when her and her ex Bash broke up 2 years ago due to a horrible prank that she never let him explain Bash never let go off Tori, he was just biding his time and protecting her from a distance until she gets knocked out by a football to the face and he s done waiting for her to let him explain I loved Bashs persistence no matter how much she avoided him he knew she was always his end game Tori was a sweet sassy heroine who I enjoyed, she wasn t oblivious to the pain he caused her prior but just also wary of his motives now Loved seeing them finally get it right I voluntarily reviewed a advanced readers copy of this book

    Two years since that fateful night when lies and jealousy broke up the dream couple has seen their lives change dramatically But when star college football player Bash decides he can no longer live without Tori the sparks once again fly Though they re trying to start fresh there s still lies and truths standing in the way of their HEA in this scorching and fast paced romance of second chances.Bash Prince is royalty in the world of football as his father is a famous former player who s amassed Two years since that fateful night when lies and jealousy broke up the dream couple has seen their lives change dramatically But when star college football player Bash decides he can no longer live without Tori the sparks once again fly Though they re trying to start fresh there s still lies and truths standing in the way of their HEA in this scorching and fast paced romance of second chances.Bash Prince is royalty in the world of football as his father is a famous former player who s amassed millions Because of that everyone wants to either be Bash or get with Bash and though that once appealed to him Tori changed him Ever since he met and fell for her he knew they d be together forever as their connection was crackling Even when a lie led to her walking away from him he does everything in his power to make life better for Tori Since the moment they met he became a better man who eschewed partying and focused on his football future Now though he s focused on getting her back No longer content to wait for Tori to stop hating him he now jumps at the chance to make her fall for him again Despite his love for her though there s a secret he s desperate to keep from her which has him selling his body and soul to a nasty and jealous cheerleader If Tori finds out the truth will he be able to keep her from hating him all over again or will the truth of his love for her win out this time around Bash is a delicious hero whose money allows him to spoil Tori in scenes that felt like Pretty Woman With his popularity he could ve been arrogant but was far from it He was kind and caring and quick to call out his teammates for their bad behavior He s also quick to make amends and take care of her when he realizes Tori s been hurt once again It all makes for a drool worthy hero teeming with sensuality who has a talent for dirty talk and who I fell for completely.Tori Reynolds is opposite to Bash in many ways She comes from a family lacking in wealth with only her hard working father to support her She s not a fan of football but is instead devoted to her education She never expected to fall for Bash, but when she did she became consumed Discovering him in a compromising situation broke her though and almost destroyed her chance at graduating If it weren t for an unexpected scholarship and months of therapy she never would ve recovered, though she s left feeling isolated and the object of stares and whispers Since then her embarrassment and anger has fueled her hatred of Bash and though she tries to steer clear of him he works his way back into her life slowly but surely Just as it seems that HEA is within their reach truths from the past come back to have her running once again Tori s a likable heroine in many ways, unique in her looks and loyal to those she calls friend She s snarky with a good sense of humor She s also proud and adamant about standing on her own two feet Her self esteem is a bit bruised though and she s quick to judge which led to her and Bash s original break up and weighs on them once again Her actions frustrated me at times as Bash didn t deserve the anger she felt for him and her unrelenting fears kept me from enjoying their reunion fully Despite this, I still enjoyed their connection and rooted for them every step of the way.This was a fast paced, second chance romance set in the competitive world of college football All the adoration, glamour, and intensity of the sport and its star players was vividly depicted and had me cheering on the sidelines Bash was a dreamy hero who treated Tori like a queen, no matter how angry she was at him He spent years trying to win her back in subtle and overt ways and it endeared him to me Tori s the kind of heroine you can relate to, the heroine you could be friends with Her and Bash are combustible together and though their reunion started off as a slow burn it quickly became erotically charged Numerous scorching scenes were balanced with moments of sweetness that kept me fully invested in their relationship every step of the way and had me cheering Bash s grand gesture at the end Along with an appealing main couple there were equally enjoyable secondary characters who were loyal and supportive friends with unique personalities that enhanced the collegiate vibe of the story Though there was a roughness to the narrative, and over the top melodrama surrounding the jealous cheerleader, I still enjoyed this story for its tale of redemption and the power of love Overall it s another winner from Ms Quinn and I recommend it to fans of sports romances and second chances
