The Fadeaway; Smart Jocks #2 (Series)
by Rebecca Jenshak (Author)
This review is from: March 9, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
This was the first book I’ve read by Rebecca Jenshak. I thoroughly enjoyed this new adult/sports contemporary book filled with witty charm, emotion, and unique twists that it kept me captivated the whole way through.
Joel Moreno hasn’t had to work for much. As a star basketball player at Valley University, girls pretty much fall at his feet, so when Katrina Phillips turns him down, he accepts it as a challenge. You see, he actually didn’t get to be a star player by talent alone, he did work for it, so having Katrina continually reject him just makes him work harder. A challenge she didn’t realize she had even instigated.
“Challenge accepted. I mean, honestly, how hard could it be to convince a girl I know already wants me, to go out with me?”-Joel
Katrina loved Thursdays. It was the one day a week when Joel came in to the cafe where she worked to get his coffee, and to ask her out. It was also when she repeatedly turned him down, but a girl could fantasize in between those moments. She was able to actually fantasize that he wanted more from her than just a quick moment in between the sheets, she could think a lot beyond the few moments he came in and asked her out once a week, but she could never say yes. Her life was complicated.
“Fantasy is almost always better than reality and Joel Moreno is my perfect fantasy.”-Katrina
When fantasy meets reality and Katrina needs help with her senior school project, Joel is there to offer his help, but not without stipulations. He offers a trade, a date for his knowledge. While it would seems harmless enough, Katrina knows keeping her personal life separate from everything else is best, but somehow that’s near impossible once Joel sets his mind on getting to know her better. It isn’t long before he’s become entwined in her life and while he seems to know a lot about her, he is still a mystery.
Could it be too late when Katrina realizes her mistake in letting Joel into her world and she hasn’t been let into his?
