Review: Sacked by Jen Frederick

Publication Date: September 6, 2015

Series: Gridiron #1

Rating: 4 Stars 

Official Blurb: 
Knox Masters is a quarterback's worst nightmare. Warrior. Champion. Knox knows what he wants--and he gets it. All American Football player? Check. NFL pros scouting him? Check. Now, he's set his sight on two things. The national title. And Ellie Campbell. Sure, she's the sister of his fellow teammate, but that's not going to stop him. Especially not when he’s convinced Ellie is the one. 

...but he's never met her before. 

But Ellie isn't as sure. She's trying to start a new life and she's not interested in a relationship...with anyone. Beside it's not just her cardinal rule of never dating her brother's teammates that keeps her away, but Ellie has a dark secret that would jeopardize everything Knox is pursuing. 

Knox has no intention of losing. Ellie has no intention of giving in.

Review: I am a huge football nerd so this was definitely an insta one click for me …and also my first book by Jen and she did not disappoint. It’s so refreshing to read a football book where there is actual football lingo! It was also amazing to read a book where the guy wasn’t trying to screw every girl that looked his way.

Knox Masters always gets what he wants and what he wants is to win the National Championship more than anything that is until he meets Ellie. Ellie isn’t like the other girls that throw themselves at Knox and he knows that she is different. But he has a rule and he is holding on to his virginity to stay focused on football. But Ellie is a complete shocker to him and has him questioning everything. She even pasted the test he puts her through with flying colors so Knox knows she is the one for him.

Ellie is looking for a fresh start and this is a chance for her to learn herself. Knox isn’t someone she was looking for, but for some reason she can’t stay away. But Ellie is hiding a huge secret that could change everything, so it’s best if she isn’t involved with Knox period.

I really enjoyed this book very much. There is drama along the way with Knox and Ellie both, which is pretty intense at times. The chemistry between these two is off the charts. I also enjoyed getting a lot of the secondary characters as well. The ending was a bit chaotic and rushed, but overall it was a fantastic read. I can’t wait for book 2 in this series.
