sweet giant who had compassion and morals unlike his fellow team members who were all dirty players although somewhat loveable He made the book for me his determination to get through to the sweet but feisty girl that he was drawn to was admirable he really fought for his girl Also he was a complete gentleman which s uite unusual n books these days2 Hate Tingly aka Rex was one of the most annoying heroines IMO She was a bitch and I understand t was a self defence mechanism but she didn t really have that many redeeming ualities she just annoyed me when she kept running when the going got tough with TyOverall though I really enjoyed reading this book It was engaging and I loved the flow of the writing and the fact that t was a bit different to other sports romances out there at the moment
