Happily Ever After... | The Trade by Ashlyn Hope

Summary from Goodreads: Her name is Tyra, and she’s a footballsexual. 

The muscles, the chiseled faces, the masculine posturing, and the tight pants all make her heart pound, and since her high school days stealing kisses from the varsity running back, she’s been hooked on the guys of the gridiron. She’s addicted to these dudes, and she’s not the only one. She’s one of a group of local girls who go out together and try to score with these guys every chance they get. 

So, yes, Tyra’s a jersey chaser. But when she meets the hunky big name quarterback who was traded to the team, she’s met her match. He’s handsome, smart, and sweet, and he and Tyra have a lot in common – including a growing desire to settle down. 

As their relationship heats up, Tyra will consider swapping out her football groupie ways for a real relationship. But that’s not going to happen if her past doesn’t block her happily ever after from happening.

Review: Girls just want to have fun... or a relationship... This was a fun read, that kept me entertained throughout the story. We follow Tyra as she turns from jersey chaser to girlfriend. The writing was good and the story was easy to follow.

There were a few things that made my rating lower. The fact that the main character was unrelatable  and totally full of herself made me not like her much. She gave off the vibe of a support character than a main heartthrob, but toward the end of the book, it cleaned up a bit. Also, the steamy scenes came on quickly and ended quickly. A little more build up and sustainability would have been more interesting to me.

All in all, it was entertaining and I'm glad I read it.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
