Gray doesn’t make friends with women. He has sex with them. Until Ivy. The last thing star tight-end Gray Grayson wants to do is drive his agent’s daughter’s bubblegum pink car. But he needs the wheels and she’s studying abroad. Something he explains when she sends him an irate text to let him know exactly how much pain she’ll put him in if he crashes her beloved ride. Before he knows it, Ivy Mackenzie has become his best texting bud. But then Ivy comes home and everything goes haywire. Because the only thing Gray can think of is being with Ivy.Ivy doesn’t have sex with friends. Especially not with a certain football player. No matter how hot he makes her… Gray drives Ivy crazy. He’s irreverent, sex on a stick, and completely off limits. Because, Ivy has one golden rule: never get involved with one of her father’s clients. A rule that’s proving harder to keep now that Gray is doing his best to seduce her. Her best friend is fast becoming the most irresistible guy she’s ever met.Which means Gray is going to have to use all his skills to get himself out of the friend zone and into Ivy’s heart. Game on
Gray and Ivy are, hands down, my favorite book couple. I love that Gray is crazy smart. He isn’t some jock who is just biding his time until he can get into the NFL. He is a math genius. Thats hot. I also love that he and Ivy fell for each other before they even met. It made the connection more believable for me. They actually like each other and it has nothing to do with their looks.
I also loved Ivy’s struggle with what to do with her life. She recently graduated from college and fell into her plan of running a bakery for her mom. Ivy loved to bake, but she didn’t love it as a career. This was something so real to me (and lots of my friends). You can enjoy something, but not want to make it your job. So many students graduate college and have that sort of ‘now what’ moment that Ivy experienced. It made her such a believable character and I loved her!
You can totally read this book without reading book one but they are both awesome!
