Looking to Score; U of J #1
(#1 within a series)
by: Alley Ciz
A new adult, college-sports romance that is full of great banter and just enough drama to keep you turning pages right up until the cliffhanger. GAH!!
Both Mason “Casanova” Nova and Kay “PF” Dennings bring previous heartache to this relationship, but Kay brings a shroud of mystery along with hers on top of it. Be warned this entire story will be told over three books, so if you detest cliffhangers and want to wait for the entire series to be released, Alley isn’t waiting long in between each one.
Alley Ciz is a new author for me and while I absolutely loved the inner monologues and thoughts of each character (seriously the best and they always cracked me up) and I loved the camaraderie between Mason’s teammates and Kay’s family and friends. I did struggle with the nicknames that Kay gave everyone close to her. This is really my own personal issue, but when her friends names were shortened to just letters I lost the personal connection (E, G, T, Q…and so on) my brain just seemed to stumble and short circuit every time and I tried so hard to remember who she was talking to or about.
Anyway, I did find refreshing, that the man nicked named “Casanova” wasn’t quite the douche that his moniker made him out to be. Mason is actually kind of sweet, yes, he has caveman tendencies, but he is also nice. Their romance developed slower than you would have expected for a football player and cheerleader story (although, once again I love breaking stereotypes). Mason and Kay both have high walls that neither are willing to break, but as they begin to crumble the story really does take off.
They both have trust issues that they need to work on to really make a relationship last, but it could work if they both face their past and just let the other one in.
Both Mason and Kay have great friends that will make excellent additions to this series and anyone who is already familiar with Alley’s books will be excited with characters popping in and making appearances.

I don’t care if he’s the star of the gridiron or how tight his end is.
I know his stats both on and off the field. My answer will always be 𝗡𝗢.
The last thing I need in my life is another charmer who’s looking to score.
