Jocked Up (Standalone)
by Summer Cooper (Author)
This review is from: March 19, 2017 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Jocked Up begins with Bethany Amberson, a single mother, who’s made it on her own and seems content with her life that is until Drake Saterlee returns home for a visit. You instantly know that this is a man she never cares to see again, ever. There is some mystery surrounding the circumstances of their previous relationship for awhile, but the backstory fills in as the plot moves along. Once Bethany finally agrees to go out with Drake, the reunion date is probably my favorite part of the book. It is quite funny as she prepares for her date, there is no way she is going to allow Drake back into her life, much less her panties, so dressing practically like a nun is his punishment.
This is a second chances HEA book where the hero has to make a decision if family comes before his career and the heroine must decide if pride comes before her ultimate happiness.
Jocked Up moves from first POV in Bethany’s thoughts to third POV when Drake interjects. The switch in point of view is also a first for me, but was easy enough to follow along once I realized what the author was doing.
Overall, the storyline is good and the characters are likeable, although there were a few plot holes and some conclusions that were assumed by the characters where suddenly all seemed right. If Summer had taken just a bit more time to fill in the holes I think this would be an excellent 5 star read as her writing style is easy to follow.
Summer Cooper is a new author read for me.
