My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book that I have read from this author and she now has a new fan. I love a good sports romance but this author exceeded all my expectations. This is the first book of the college sports romance series. When I got this book I could not put it down. The characters make you addicted to their story. I didn’t stop until the end and now I want more. It only took me a few hours to devour this incredible book.

Tessa Parker is starting her college year and she wants to get her education and get out. She loves being the librarian at her school library. Tessa keeps running into this hot guy, Jordan Davis. He is the star basketball player and womanizer of the school. Tessa tries to stay away but he asks her to help him because underneath all the fame he is really smart. She gets to know him and she quickly realizes she is falling for him. Tessa doesn’t know if she can survive in his world and do they want her in his world? Will they be able to make it or are their worlds too different?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Such an entertaining read! Brooke May has done a really good job of creating characters who buck stereotypes and keep you turning the pages to find out what they will do next! A great mix of western and football – recommended for fans of both. Now to read the others in the series!

Playing Series 3 Book Set: Sports Romance by Stephanie Queen

Playing for the Money

This is the first book I’ve read by the author but it won’t be the last. Queen knows how to capture a reader’s attention and knows how to keep it. Playing for the Money is a great read.

Cat, the coach’s daughter, takes on the task of being a bad boys handler. Being the daughter of the coach has points, but also has disadvantages. The quote I chose for Cat is: “I’ll contact the Players Association so you won’t have to pay their attorney. I’m pretty sure I can convince them.”

Hunter, the bad boy football player, finds himself in trouble. Not once but twice. Cat comes to his rescue for the second one. He keeps his personal life locked up tight. The quote I chose for Hunter is: “I wouldn’t know. Because I don’t need to be crazy to be in love with you. I’d be crazy if I didn’t love you, Cat.”

Highly recommended for sport romance lovers.

Playing for Love

Queen has really done it with this book. You’ll need tissues. Maybe two boxes. Playing for Love is a great book and I can’t wait for the next one.

Mia, best friend to Gabe’s girlfriend, went to college with the pro. She had a huge crush on him back in the day, but does she still have it? The quote I chose for Mia is: “I can’t wait to dream of you again, to wake up with you and remember it wasn’t all a dream.”

Gabe, a star QB, isn’t sure what he wants anymore. His love is football…or it was. What happens when his crush from college shows up? The quote I chose for Gabe is: “It’s not the way I feel. You , Mia, are far more important to me than football.”

Highly recommended for sport romance lovers.

Playing for Keeps

Queen loves to keep her readers wanting more. This next story requires tissues as well. The heartbreak reading this is real.

Tate, someone who loves the game, isn’t quite ready for the storm called Chloe. He plays hard to get and really despises her. The quote I chose for Tate is: “Get out, Chloe. It’s time for me to strip down and take an ice bath and I wouldn’t want you to get overexcited and out of control.”

Chloe, aka Smitty, is trying to climb her way to the top. She is sassy and honestly a great person. She sets her eye on Tate. If only she can get over his personality. The quote I chose for Chloe is: “I already am, big boy. Didn’t you know? I’m the pathetic little girl of the late-great master trying to fill her daddy’s shoes and never gonna make it.”

Highly recommended for sport romance lovers!

Four Stars

She’s No Cowgirl is the fifth book in the My Cowboy series by Brooke May. This is the first book that I have read by this author, but definitely won’t be my last. This book can obviously be read as a standalone. Ms. May really brings the characters to life. I enjoyed the flow of the story. Hunter and Kennedy are following their dreams, when they have an accidental meeting. Will their chemistry be enough to keep them together, or will real world issues get in their way? This fun fast paced book was a great weekend read. I look forward to going back and reading the first four books in the series.

Five Stars

Have you ever read a story that just made you smile for no reason? That’s how I felt reading this book. It was sweet and beautiful. You have two people wanting to live a dream that others don’t see for them. But the beautiful part that dream is something they share. One has no time for love while the other holds a secret. I really enjoyed the characters. They fit together perfectly like puzzle pieces. The author definitely gets you a great story for you to fall in love with. I found myself investing in the happiness of Hunter and Kennedy. Even knowing it’s fiction I wanted the best for them. I recommend you read this story if you want something sweet in between the spicy.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A fun and enjoyable sports romance with a cowboy/cowgirl twist. Although book five in the ‘My Cowboy Series’ it can be read as a standalone story, however some of the characters do crossover. In ‘She’s No Cowgirl’, Hunter Masters does not want to continue with his families ranching legacy and has his own goal of playing American Football. Meanwhile Kennedy McGraw grew up in a man oriented world and was forced to put her football ambitions behind her. When Kennedy is given the opportunity to prove that women are just as capable as men in the world of sport she jumps at the chance. Kennedy and Hunter then meet by accident in the locker room and they both feel an instant attraction and chemistry between them. However, Hunter has always been too focused on football for relationships and Kennedy denies how she feels and keeps Hunter at a distance. Eventually the couple have to admit their feelings for each other but just as their relationship is developing an article by K.D. comes out declaring a secret which will cause a scandal. Hunter and Kennedy have to decide if they can trust each other and survive the potential scandal together or if it will tear them apart. I loved the main characters, Hunter and Kennedy and how their relationship developed during the story, their chemistry definitely came across in the narrative. This was an easy read and the storyline flowed well and the plot had enough going on in it to keep me happily turning the pages. I liked how the author included some more difficult themes such as the sexism that Kennedy suffered in the man dominated sports world and this added depth to the story. A great read which I thoroughly enjoyed and I am keen to read the rest of the books in this series now.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

She’s No Cowgirl is the 5th book in the series but can definitely be read as a standalone.
This is the story of Hunter and Kennedy. Hunter is a sophomore football player. While his family owns a ranch, his dreams are bigger than spending day-in and day-out working the land. He would love to go pro playing football, but would settle for a career in the business world. Kennedy used to have a dream of playing football, but she learned early on that her options were limited because she was a girl. Instead, she has shifted her focus to being an amazing sports journalist. The only problem…she has to hide her identity because women are not taken seriously in this business.
An accidental run-in (literally) between Hunter and Kennedy has changed the course for both of them. Instead of focusing on school, football, and journalism, they are finding that they are focusing on each other. As they begin their relationship, Hunter can tell Kennedy is hiding something…he just can’t quite figure it out. Kennedy knows that her job could jeopardize everything they are building. What happens when it all comes out…can they move past it? Or will KD be the downfall of Hunter’s career?
I enjoyed both Hunter and Kennedy’s characters. They are both driven college students that don’t spend their free time partying and, instead, are trying to shape their futures. Their connection was instant and I could feel it through the pages. I enjoyed the story and am now going to go back and read the rest in the series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I instantly fell in love with both characters and for separate reasons. Masters needed a getaway from the rough and tough lifestyle as he knew it and Kennedy is nothing like the leading ladies we often read about in books like these. I love that she’s a relatable tomboy but still a lady at heart. She’s capable of being a skirt but the cat and mouse chemistry between these two draw you near as seduction heats up. Their love is an unexpected gift in this book as we learn what rips them apart can bring them together. I love Brooke May’s writing and how she brings the world in her books together seamlessly.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

She’s No Cowgirl is actually book 5 in the My Cowboy Series and thankfully can be read as a standalone. This story is about Hunter and Kennedy. The other books in this series follow other couples and I look forward to reading about them.

Hunter and Kennedy are sweet and fun. They are young adults in the early years of college. Instead of being party animals, they both are working hard towards their dreams, him the football star and her a sports journalist. Their love story is sweet and innocent with an added bonus of their love for sports…football in particular. However, just like in sports, there is a bad play in their love story. Kennedy and Hunter must decide if the play is a game ending play for their relationship or just a little time out.

This story is easy to follow and the characters are easy to read about. Kennedy is a strong female character. In fact, both Kennedy and Hunter are strong characters overall, both determined in their choice of careers and the path to get them to their dreams.

I enjoyed this story and will read from this author again.
