Review for Out of Bounds by Juliana Conners - 4 out of 5
She's untouchable. But I'll touch whatever I f*cking want.
I've f*cked up more than once, but I'm Wesley Reynolds-- the star quarterback everyone loves. Women fall at my feet and the rules don't apply to me. I can do whatever the f*ck I want.
Or at least that's the way it used to be. Now I'm on f*cking probation in a new town at a new college.
When I moved to Calton and started playing football for the Wildcats under Coach Thompson, everyone--including the coach himself-- told me his daughter Chelsea was off limits. And due to my troubled past, I have to stay in the coach's good graces for the one season I'm on his team, or risk losing my football career for good.
Chelsea's shaking those hips every day, taunting me. They say she's innocent and inexperienced, but she bats those gorgeous blue eyes at me like she wants me to rock her world. Her perfect curves look sinfully delicious under that short cheerleading skirt and they tempt me to risk it all.
I've never been good at following the rules. And now I've got to make a bold, dirty play.
Because when I want something, I f*cking take it.
Everyone's father is strict, but mine? I'm unlucky enough to be the football coach's daughter. He penalizes his players for an out of bounds play if they so much as look at me the wrong way.
Until recently, that's been fine by me. I've had to work twice as hard to prove myself since everyone assumes I'm only the head cheerleader for the Calton Wildcats because of my dad's influence. I've lead my squad to a State conference victory and this year Nationals is within reach. I don't need the distraction of dating dumb jocks to get in the way of my goals.
But the minute that Wesley Reynolds walks onto the field, I can't get his hard, lean, tattooed muscles out of my mind. I know he's a player both on and off the field, and I've heard rumors that he takes the word "heartbreaker" to a whole new level.
I also know that he's only in town for one football season but I just want to let loose and have a little fun for once.
I'm about to break Dad's rules for the first time ever.
I'll let Wesley make a pass at me, but I won't let him run off with my heart.
* Out of Bounds is a full-length standalone novel with no cheating, no cliffhanger and a guaranteed Happily Ever After.
MY REVIEW -
This was cute! Wesley is a bad boy football player, who got kicked out of his last school for multiple reasons, which include being a manwhore, so he is at a new school and on a new football team, but he needs to keep his nose clean, or he won't get to play football, which he really loves, so he is trying to be a semi-good boy, but when he spots Chelsea, head cheerleader, he knows he wants her bad, but there is a little problem, she is also his new football coach's daughter! This is a college age romance, but it did feel a little bit high school to me, but I still really enjoyed it, and the sex scenes were steamy! Wesley tries to act like he's a tough guy, but I felt he was kind of a softy. I liked that Chelsea could take care of herself, and that she wasn't your stereotypical cheerleader. Chelsea and Wesley have some really cute moments together, and I like that they build on their attraction to each other; there's a scene where Chelsea is teaching Wesley to fish that I thought was super adorable! There was a bit of suspense in this book because some people can't be trusted, but I do wish that part would have been a bigger factor in the book. Also, there's a cheer at the end of the book that I could've done without, but maybe that's just my lack of S-P-I-R-I-T! This was a quick, easy read for me, so if you like some forbidden romance mixed in with some hot bad boy football player, then this is for you!
