Description

This college jock is a total player. He's used to getting who and what he wants. Until her....

Katrina

The hottest guy on campus won't stop asking me out. I know that sounds like a good problem to have, but this guy...this guy has no idea how complicated my life is trying to juggle being a single mom and college student.

Every Thursday, he shows up at the café where I work. His cheesy pickup lines and arrogance should have me completely annoyed. I'm not. I can't say yes, but Thursday is my favorite day of the week.

Joel

The hottest girl on campus won't go out with me. I know, I know, that sounds presumptuous, but this girl...this girl has gotten under my skin, and I can't seem to walk away.

Every Thursday, I show up at the café where she works. She's fed me every excuse in the book. I should give up and bang one of the many girls blowing up my phone. I'm not. Even when she says no, Thursday is my favorite day of the week.

Winners Want the Ball

Overall 4.5 stars
Performance 5 stars
Story 4 stars

This series is such a fun twist on the NA sports romance. After loving The Assist, I couldn't wait to get to Joel's story next. This is book 2 in the series, but it can be enjoyed as a standalone. I definitely recommend the previous book though, because it's a great read/listen and that is where our characters are introduced.

It's no secret that my least favorite type of romance hero is the manwhore. Thankfully, Joel ended up being much more than the cocky and arrogant big man on campus. There are still some less than pleasant reminders of his colorful past, but we also get to see a much sweeter and vulnerable side to Joel Moreno as well. The witty banter and push and pull between Katrina and Joel was delicious and I loved the slow burn build up between them. Both have pasts that have left scars and it was so wonderful seeing them each break those walls down. Christian was so cute and I really loved his interactions with Joel, but I did feel that his vocabulary seemed a bit advanced for a 3 year old. The drama at the end was thankfully resolved quickly and Joel made up for it in the end.

Teddy Hamilton was wonderful as always and even though I thought he might be too sweet to pull off Joel, he of course ended up being perfect. This was my first time listening to Summer Morton, but I really enjoyed her narration as determined and guarded Katrina. Both gave playful and heartfelt performances and really brought the characters to life. I'm really looking forward to Z's story next!

Sweet Sports Romance

I absolutely adored this. This is delivering everything you want in a NA sports romance. Swoon worthy basketball star with a hankering for coffee. A tough as nails heroine who is totally self sufficient. She doesn’t need the hunk she wants him and it’s refreshing.

If getting the story wasn’t enough Teddy Hamilton is knocking it out of the park as the H. Summer Morton is also wonderful.

If you like NA and sports romance this is an easy listen. You will have a great time with well developed characters. Totally worth a credit!

Sweet Story

Kitty, the single mom, and Joel, the college basketball player. A cute couple who have obstacles to overcome. I wasn’t surprised that they did, overcome those obstacles, to be together..always. Hey, no spoilers here, it’s a Romance novel for goodness sake. This couple is extremely likable and Teddy Hamilton is his adorable self. As a plus, you’ll like Joel’s friends. This was a quick easy read, even with it being 40 chapters.

Terrific Book!

I couldn’t stop listening! The storyline was interesting and the characters were strong. I like fact that it shows how tough it really is to be a single parent, and just because you are, you don’t have to give up on your dreams. Great book!

Loved it!!

I loved this one! Joel is a hot, sexy basketball player (yummm) but avoids relationships for a good reason. Katrina is strong and knows her worth. Their chemistry is electric and their banter will have you in stitches and then feel swoony. Narration is fantastic! A definite must listen in this series!

Joel Melted My Heart!

Talk about dedication. College basketball star Joel Moreno shows up at the campus cafe every Thursday for months on end, asking out barista Katrina (aka Kitty). And every week she shoots him down. Joel is patient and kind, when he could have his pick of any girl on campus, because there's something about Kitty that has him completely enamored.

He puts in a ton of effort when it comes to wooing Katrina, and when she eventually gives in, they both try to keep things casual. As a single mom, Katrina tries to keep her heart guarded, but the sweet side that Joel shows to her and her son Christian... well, it's no wonder she falls for him. And Joel has his heart on lockdown, still carrying around a ton of baggage as a result of his high school girlfriend's betrayal. The Fadeaway is Joel's signature move on the court -- might he need to change up his signature move in his love life before he loses the best thing that's ever happened to him?

As for the performances, Teddy Hamilton could read the phonebook and I'd listen. I absolutely love what he brings to every audiobook I've heard him narrate and he was a perfect Joel. Likewise, Summer Morton was fantastic at bringing Katrina to life.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook and voluntarily left a review.

Another great listen

Book 2 in the Smart Jocks series. Each can be listened/read as a standalone and they feature different couples. Loved the story and the characters. Loved Joel and Katrina. Great chemistry between them. They found such great narrators in Teddy Hamilton and Summer Morton to bring the characters to life.

College Sports Romance

This is my first time reading/listening to this author and I loved it! It’s a great new adult college sports and single parent romance.

Besides being a star basketball player, Joel is also player, is ya know what I mean. But he meets the one girl who says No. The interaction between Joel and Katrina had me laughing out loud!!!! I had my fingers crossed 🤞🏻 that Joel has what it takes to be in Katrina’s life!

Teddy Hamilton and Summer Morton did a fantastic narrating!

Opposites Attract Sports Romance

Not gonna lie I was a little nervous to read Joel’s story as he came off as a real a**hole in book 1 and I didn’t want to hate his story and it ruin the series for me.

Joel and Katrina were so absolutely perfect together. I loved the unraveling of each other’s stories and how they came to be who they are and why. Together they were the perfect recipe of opposites attract.
