Half Sac by Thia Finn

Blue Myers lives by his own code, ‘Be in Control’. He follows this on the football field when bringing down the best and biggest quarterbacks.
His code carries over to the bedroom, since he made rules to fulfill certain needs. Some women balk at his freaky plans. Others are all in. He chooses them carefully.
Follow his code or leave his domain, on the field or in his bed.

Rules? Codes? Who needs them? Not Noelle Jefferies. Rules are made to be broken. Especially from some crazy fetish control freak.
But what happens when she can’t seem to escape her thoughts about a hot football player with interesting rules?
Can she follow his code or will she break it and Blue in the process?

Who will submit first?

*Full length stand alone football romance with no cliff hangers and an HEA. The sizzling hot story is intended for readers 18 and over.

I can honestly say that I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did. I don’t normally love the New Adult/College genre of romance, and yet this book was really enjoyable for me.

I think one of my favorite parts of this book are the themes of friendship. Yes, there is romance between Blue and Noelle. But there is also a strong sense of love in terms of friends. In particular, the relationship between Noelle and her roommate, Quinn. At times, I actually thought Quinn sort of stole the show, so to speak. She was hilarious, foul-mouthed, and honestly the kind of friend that I feel like every girl needs.

Noelle’s character was just epic. I absolutely adored her! She didn’t take any crap from anyone and I loved her for it. In this story, Noelle has just transferred to this university and she doesn’t know a ton of people. But even with that aspect, she holds her own. She doesn’t sit and allow herself to be pushed around or taken advantage of. That was a really admirable aspect of her character.

The author in this story also threw in some nice curveballs. One scene that sticks out to me is a scene in which Blue drives to Noelle’s parents house. It’s getting late, and they both are tired. I honestly expected that Blue would stay the night with Noelle and it would be this non-stop dialogue about sexual tension. But it wasn’t. Blue drives the two hours home. I admire the author for doing this because it’s different and it’s a risk, but I felt it was worth it.

If you love New Adult Romance, Sports Romance, or the college setting, you will definitely enjoy this book. The characters are feisty, outgoing, and easy to love.
