    Swagger

    This was an enjoyable read with just enough going on to keep it interesting. Marcus James is a tightend for the Milwaukee Dragons but he was unfortunate to be injured in one of the preseason games and required surgery on his knee and so is out for the season while on rehab. He decides this is a good time to complete the last two classes he needs to get his degree since he left college to join the NFL. While getting coffee before his first class he is taken by surprise and knocked to the ground by a spitfire with blue in her hair and mumbling to herself. Bree Novak is a graduate student who is working on her dissertation and will be defending her Ph.D. but before that her new advisor has her teaching one of his classes. Guess who is in her class? Yes, Marcus. The chemistry between these two is palpable and though they try to keep it hands off until they could no longer deny each other. Marcus has a calming effect on Bree and her anxiety but she has the same effect on Marcus. This is a well written book and it was also fun to get to know so many of the players and their significant others. This can be read as a standalone. **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

    Very enjoyable

    This was an enjoyable read. It has nice writing, a good flow and well developed interesting characters. Everything you look for in a good book. Nothing wow about the story but it is a nice romance. I enjoyed the maturity of the characters. No back and forth about their feelings, they handled situations the way would expect adults to handle them, and they actually talked about any issues that came up. Just a note while this is a "sports romance" there isn't much in the way of sports in this book. Overall I really liked this one and I think you will too. I recommend it.

    PHD in Physics, Not with the Chemistry in Swagger!

    have read both books in the Milwaukee Dragon series and I hope Liz Lincoln follows Swagger by adding more books to the series. Typically the books have similar storylines but Liz Lincoln outdid herself with Swagger, two totally different storylines just centering around the Milwaukee Dragon football team. This one was steamy hot and I do mean steamy, Kindle-melting scenes. But not only steamy, it also was one of the most heartful sports romance books I have ever read, Marcus knew how to support & cherish Bree, swoon-worthy to say the least. This book has it all and will have you hooked with an abundance of heat & just enough heart. Marcus has so much Swagger he is definitely worthy of the title! My only negative would be I would have loved to have a few more chapters because I would have loved to know what's next for Marcus & Bree. But I am hoping the way it ended only means Liz Lincoln has more books planned for this series and will come through with a Book 3 and a Marcus & Bree update, one can only hope! Definitely recommend not missing this one, Swagger is one delectible read!

    Topical issues in a sexy and fun romance!

    This is a fun and exciting sports romance that covers a lot of topics in an authentic and believable way. It's got a bit of a forbidden teacher/student trope, though Marcus and Bree are of similar age in their late twenties so the main issue is propriety in terms of grades since Marcus is Bree's student. Themes such as disability access, misogyny and other challenges for women in college science environments, anxiety, and sports related brain injuries are all part and parcel of the story and seamlessly blended into the romance. The sex scenes are hot, the friendships are real, and the career complications are realistic. It's a great read!

    Nerdy and Fantastic

    I started reading Swagger and never wanted to put it down because it was so good; I enjoyed the first in the series, On the Line, but Liz Lincoln outdid herself with this sequel. From the very beginning I was invested in Marcus and Bree’s story and their developing friendship turned romance. Both our hero and heroine come from families that have expectations about success and they’re each constantly trying to prove themselves. This, along with a love of football and nerdy culture, created common ground for them to grow from. I really enjoyed the friendship that’s built first and it made the transition into a relationship so much stronger. Because of the student/teacher dynamic there’s a lot of tension as Marcus and Bree try to resist each other and, all things considered, they don’t do a very good job staying away but that just means more tension and sexiness for the reader. Lincoln creates some great characters in Swagger and I felt each was uniquely developed with great representation across genders, races, and disabilities while still making it feel natural and not like she was trying too hard. Bree is one smart woman and she refuses to give up no matter how much resistance she gets from her family or her advisor. She’s unfortunately confronted with the sad truth that some fields are still an “old boys” club and I admired her restraint in the face of her advisor’s terrible treatment. Bree is also incredibly independent though I felt like that causes some problems as she navigates a new relationship with Marcus. But the nice thing is that for the most part, Bree and Marcus discuss their problems, desires, and expectations like adults and this was so refreshing! I also loved that while Marcus might be a celebrity athlete he’s also very humble and down to earth. He loves that he can be himself with Bree but it also seems like he’s just naturally an easy going guy. He looks out for his team, works hard, and is dedicated to having the life he wants. Marcus is definitely on my book boyfriend list! I only have one complaint about the book and it centers around an argument over Bree not wanting others to interfere and try to control her life. She’s had that from her family and an ex-boyfriend and she’s tired of it, justifiably. However, I felt like what Marcus did was nowhere near trying to control anything and was in fact just helping Bree to make a connection. I felt that Bree completely overreacted and while she had good reasons for it, I expected more of an apology from Bree. Instead, the “blame” is placed completely on Marcus and I honestly felt like he didn’t do anything wrong. Other than that small complaint, this book was pure magic for me!
