SYNOPSIS

A regimented life on the track is the reason I’m a Kingston College scholarship student.

But a wayward football—thrown by Christian Moore, the rich guy who ruined my reputation in high school—threatened to rob me of my future.

Desperation drove me to do something foolish.

Something that put my body in the hands of the guy I hate.

I didn’t want to like his touches. I didn’t want to crave him.

But everything in the way he devoured me turned me inside out and made me forget this was just a game.

Now I fear he’s going to ruin me again…in ways there will be no coming back from.

Review – Enemy Down by Cathryn Fox

Enemy Down; End Zone #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Close Proximity/Sports Romance

Author: Cathryn Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

From the beginning I was mesmerized by this couple. Christian and Maize are both powerful, stubborn, young adults, but they blazed with a passion that kept me turning the pages long into the night.

Christian and Maize have a history dating back to high school and not a good history at that. Even though they’ve been attending the same college for the past four years they have been able to avoid one another until Christian’s football injures Maize.

The story weaves together so beautifully and also sinfully…cause whew…the  steamy times were A.Ma.Zing!! There is almost nothing better than hawt, and I’m talking hawt bedroom times, mixed in with a little giggling and sweet emotion. Christian and Maize brought it all and I was there for every moment.

These two both admit they are stubborn and work hard to get what they want. From the very beginning they both admit that neither want a relationship and continue to circle back to this point throughout the book, even when they might be feeling something more. Let me bring up that stubborn point again. I love how hard they try not to fall for each other, while doing that very thing.

Fall in love with this smexy couple and turn pages late into the night like I did. It’s totally worth it!

SYNOPSIS

Landon Brooks.

The ultimate bad boy every girl wants.

His world at Kinston College is full of parties, booze and sex. The opposite of mine.

I’m the quiet twin he never knew existed, until he heard a lie—I hated him.

Maybe that’s why he pursued me—why I became his obsession. It’s all about the chase, right?

I can’t deny that I like the attention. That my body burns for him. I shouldn’t crave him. I hate that I do. We don’t belong together.

That should have been enough to stop me from sneaking into his room, from teasing a thirst I just can’t quench…because once the hunt is over, it’s ALL over.

Unless he never knew it was me…

EXCERPT 

I stand at my door listening, waiting for him to make it downstairs, and then quietly open it. Keeping the lights off, I make my way down in the dark. I step outside and take a big breath of night air, letting it soothe the anxiety inside me. I peer into the dark, and can make out Landon’s shape out near the barn. I head toward him, the night sky bright with stars.

“Hey,” I say when I reach him. I can’t quite see his face in the dark, but can hear the stress in his voice when he says hello. “You want to go for a walk?”

“Sure.”

Grass and hay crunch beneath our feet as we head out into the orchard. A comfortable quiet surrounds us as we walk, both lost in our own thoughts. Finally I break the quiet and say, “Most of the trees are picked clean by now, but a few of the later apples are still on them. Want to go grab one?”

“Sure,” he says and I chuckle. “What?”

“That seems to be your word of the night. What happened to that great vocabulary of yours?”

Our knuckles brush, and I can almost feel him relax beside me. “Just a little lost for words tonight,” he says and I nod in the dark, even though he can’t see me.

“Come on,” I urge, and take his hand, sensing he needs a reprieve from reality, if only for a little while. “Let’s go do something fun.”

“Fun is good.”

We walk and walk and walk, until we reach our neighbor’s farm. I put my hand to my lips to make sure he stays quiet. “Where are we?” he asks in a whispered voice. I take my phone out and put on my flashlight app. I shine it on the corn stalk maze.

“My neighbors set this up every year for the kids.”

“It’s a maze?” he asks.

“Yeah, want to do it?”

He scratches his head and when I shine the light on him, he says, “Can you turn that off?” He used those exact words when I shone the light on him in his bedroom that first night, the night that feels like it happened so long ago.

“Sorry,” I apologize and turn it off. I run into the maze and he curses under his breath as he follows behind me.

“Where the hell are you?” he asks, and I run, loving the wind in my face, and just wanting to be twelve again, no worries, no hurt…

“Marco,” he calls out and I laugh.

“Polo,” I say and run around the stalks, coming to a dead end. I turn and take the right when I spot his shadow in the distance.

“Marco.”

His voice is close, and I keep running. When I get to a safe distance away, I whisper, “Polo.” I can’t stop the chuckle in my throat. It rises up and gives away my location as I try to get past him. He reaches out and snatches me by the waist.

“Got you,” he says, and tugs me to him. The chuckle dies on my lips as his heat reaches out to me, the space between us filling with want, need, and volatile energy.

“Ella,” he whispers in the dark, and I wet my lips, wanting his mouth on mine.

“Yeah?”

He pushes my hair back, and tucks it behind my ears and my entire body tingles, from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. His finger lingers near my ear, and trail down along my neck. His touch is like fire on my skin as I pull in a fast breath. A noise sounds in the distance, an animal scurrying in the night, but we continue to stand there, face to face, our bodies close, aligned perfectly. Before I can think better of it, I put my hands on his shoulders, just for one second—one last time—wanting to feel him.

He leans into me, and his warm breath washes over my face. I wish I could see his eyes.  But I’m being selfish, taking what isn’t mine even though it seems to be what we both want. Sometimes life just isn’t fair. I drop my hands, and step into him, pressing my face against his heart. His hands close around me, like he too knows we can’t do this. In the dark of the night we stand there, two lost souls.

Review – Fair Play by Cathryn Fox

57432249. sy475

Fair Play; End Zone #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 4, 2021

Genre/Tropes: College/New Adult/Love Triangle/Sports Romance

Author: Cathryn Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This is no ordinary love triangle…can you say twins? The twists and turns that this story took had me intrigued, but also with my mouth on the floor multiple times. The shocked meme was totally me!

Within the first chapter I thought I knew where this book was headed and I thought I had the characters all figured out…well…you know what they say about assuming. I’ll just leave that thought there and move on.

Fair Play took me on a ride I didn’t expect and it was a journey that I thoroughly enjoyed along the way. Ella and Landon’s happy ending wasn’t easy to achieve…did you see my beginning sentence…yeah it’s a whole debacle that creates quite a mess, but who ever said life is fair or that something that comes easy is worth receiving.

Ella has a twin sister, Ivy, and they don’t necessarily run in the same circles. Ivy is a cheerleader and in a sorority where as Ella is quite the opposite, the sister in the shadows and into cinematography. Basically the guys on the football team don’t even know Ivy has a sister, much less a twin sister, until Ella is hired to film the football team footage her senior year.

Landon happens to notice Ella even though Ella doesn’t do anything to garner attention except be herself. Here in also lies the big differences between the sisters, Ella is sweetly charming, but also honest where it counts, where as Ivy is bold and basically mean girl hurtful. Landon is reaching a point in his college days where he’s able to admit to himself that a girl like Ivy used to turn his head freshman year, but someone like Ella is more his speed now that he knows what his end goal is going to be, the NFL. However, both girls gain his attention in one night and this lands Landon in one giant mess.

This is my first Cathryn Fox book and between friends, family, and all the drama, this journey is worth reading, especially if you love angsty, new adult books, which I happen to LOVE!
