Trust me when I say that Rowan Michaels fever is alive and well at Western University. His fanbase is legendary. The guy is a major player.
Both on and off the field.
Girls fall all over themselves to be with him. They fill the stands at football practice, show up at parties he’s rumored to be at, and basically stalk him around campus.
It’s a little nauseating.
Don’t these girls have any self-respect when it comes to a hot guy?
Fine...I’ll admit it, he’s good looking. If you’re into that kind of thing. Which I’m not. I’ve got school and soccer to keep me busy which is exactly why I avoid him like an unfortunate clap diagnosis.
Too bad for me that Rowan is my father’s star quarterback. He’s practically part of the family, attending Wednesday night dinners with us. To make matters worse, we’re in the same major and get stuck together in classes every semester. It’s like the universe is trying to play a cosmic joke on me. The one guy I’d like to steer clear of is the very same one I can’t seem to get away from.
But what if Rowan isn’t the manwhore I pegged him to be?
What if one little secret has the capability to change everything between us?
*This is a mature New Adult novel with strong language and sexual situations intended for readers over the age of 18*
Campus Player is the story of 2 college athletes: one, a judgmental girl and the other a nice guy with an undeserved reputation. Demi was difficult for me to really like at times. She frequently mentions her parents divorce and how her dad was to blame. I get it, his life was his job, but it seems Demi is still upset about it. Her mom? She moved on and got remarried and is happy. Its Demi who can’t seem to let it go. Also, even though she herself deals with numerous untrue rumors, she blindly believes everything she hears about Rowan.
Now, Rowan is everything you want in a romance hero! He is devoted, sweet, and super romantic. I just adored him so much! He has always held a candle for Demi, even though she seemed to despise him. When he finally tells her, I just wanted to hug him! He had to be brave and speak up. Swoon! And everything he does is for her. He supports her dreams of playing professional soccer even if it means they might not be in the same city upon graduation (since he is going into the NFL).
I’m perhaps a bit harsh on Demi. Maybe I’m just in a mood. But, regardless of my personal feelings on her, readers will LOVE Rowan, so give Campus Player a shot!
