Book Review: Blind Side
The hottest college football safety in the nation just asked me to be his fake girlfriend.
And I just asked him to take my virginity.
Clay Johnson has the abs of Adonis and the deadly smirk of the devil, himself. There’s hardly a day he’s not headline material during football season, and never a day he isn’t a bullseye target for every girl on campus.
He used to be the easiest of all the players for me to wrangle as the Public Relations Coordinator, but after a nasty breakup with his high school sweetheart, he’s a mess.
And a complete pain in my ass.
We meet to discuss his behavior and review media relations standards. But when he witnesses how I fall to pieces in front of my guitar-toting crush, his wheels start turning. And he cooks up this absurd plan.
He helps me get noticed.
I help him make his ex jealous.
All by pretending to be in a relationship.
What he doesn’t realize is that this bookworm is a virgin, and far from versed in seducing a musician. So, to sweeten the deal, I convince him to help me — not just to get my crush’s attention, but to knock his socks off once I have it.
But the more I come unraveled at the hands of Clay Johnson, the more trouble I have discerning what’s fake and what’s undoubtedly real — particularly, the way my heart flutters every time that breathtaking man touches me.
We set the rules. We put the safeguards in place.
But they say rules are meant to be broken.
They probably should have added that hearts are, too.
Blind Side is a fake dating college sports romance with "lessons" and opposites attract. It is a complete stand-alone.
I have seen books by Kandi Steiner and even have a few on my Kindle but this is actually the first book I have read by this author. Now, that I have I will be reading the other books. This is an angsty read that I am here for it.
In the beginning, I have to admit that I was not sure the fan of Clay. While I like a cocky man, I just was not vibing with him. On the other hand, I liked Giana right away. She had an innocence about her that I could relate to. Like Giana, I had my first intimate experience later in life. It was during this time that I fell for Clay. The way that he was gentle and caring with Giana knowing it was her first time; he won me over. Kandi "popped" my cherry with this book! Blind Side by Kandi Steiner = awesome read!
