Dillon McQueen: Babe. I promise. You want me.
Serena Jensen: Um, who are you?

There’s a legend at Waylon University: the first girl you kiss freshman year at the bonfire party is the one you’ll never forget. She’ll crawl under your skin. She’ll spark a passion so fierce you’ll burn the world down to possess her.

You might even put a ring on it.

But...timing is everything. That kiss can go horribly wrong. She might run in the opposite direction. And boy, did Serena run.

Dillon is Waylon’s hotshot quarterback with something to prove. All he wants is to graduate and make it to the NFL. What he doesn’t need is to finally meet the mystery girl he kissed at the bonfire freshman year. Isn’t it enough that she’s haunted his dreams for more than a thousand nights?

Fate laughs in his face when he runs into the plucky girl at the Piggly Wiggly. Surrounded by his entourage, he’s got all the Oreos in his cart; she gets revenge by buying every six-pack of his favorite beer.

Obviously, that legend is a curse. She’s not his type and hates him. Worst of all, how can she not remember him when she left a Serena-shaped hole in his heart for the past three years?

So why can’t he stop trying to win her?

Will this quarterback score the girl or make the biggest fumble of his life?


I've decided to grab all the books off my Amazon wish-list that are on Kindle Unlimited before my six month long subscription runs out next month and this is one of them.

This starts at the Waylon bonfire where it's said that the first girl you kiss will get under your skin and you wont be able to forget her. Dillon is sceptical of the curse but his attention is captured by a girl - Serena -dancing her heart out by herself and unable to help himself he kisses her, only she disappears before he can fins anything out about her. Fast forward three years and Dillon is now quarterback of the team when he bumps into Serena at the local store, only both have changed and don't recognise the other but both have a niggling sense that they know each other.

I enjoyed this like I have the rest of the series. Both of these two had a bit of a dodgy past in terms of relationships with others. Dillon's parents were never really there for him and Serena's ex was bad news which has made her wary of love. They did make a cute couple, though, and I'm glad that Dillon managed to worm his way under Serena's skin and that she actually let her guard down long enough to let the cutely awkward quarterback into her life.

I liked seeing that last part with the guys from the previous books making an appearance in the epilogue. Blaze is still my favourite... I think. 😍

If the author does another book in this series I will definitely be reading it. These american football players have a way of making me fall in love with them. Maybe the blue haired Owen Sinclair will be next??
