    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.

    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**

    Never judge a book by the cover.

    This is a fun and refreshing look at people and judging a book by its cover. Watching Bree and Marcus fall in love was a rollercoaster ride. A lot of twist and turns keep me going till the end I read it in one sitting.

    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!

    Okay, not great

    I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley for my honest review. Marcus James is a tight end for the Milwaukee Dragons NFL team. He injured his ACL and is out for the season. He has decided to go back two college to finish up the last two classes he needs to finish his degree. One of these classes is intro to Physics, taught by grad student Bree Novak. Bree is finishing up her doctorate in Physics. She is having to deal with crippling panic attacks and a sexist advisor, who doesn’t believe women belong in the Physics. She is a huge fan of the Dragons and Marcus in particular. This sets up the hot-for-teacher, forbidden romance between the two of them. I liked this story, but I didn’t love it. What I loved about this story, Marcus. He is the perfect guy, an athlete, loves smart women, patient. I also liked that they had the female love interest as an academic in the STEM area. What drove me crazy about this story, Bree. When the inevitable breakup happens (this is not a spoiler as every romance does this), it was due to Bree being irrational. But of course the story put the blame on Marcus. Sometimes women are jerks too and they need to put on their big girl panties and do the apologizing. If you liked the first book in this series, you will enjoy this book.
