A STANDALONE New Adult Sports Romance in the For You series. Each book follows a new swoonworthy couple.
Crosby Parks had the life most guys only dreamed of. A wealthy family, girls vying for his attention, and pro scouts after his hockey skills. But when the life he knows comes crumbling down, he’s sent to Alabama to escape the media storm and to rebuild his life. If Crosby has any shot of playing professional hockey, he must keep a low profile and graduate from college. But the second he steps foot on campus, keeping a low profile becomes impossible.
Sabrina’s mind is made up. After encouraging Alabama’s star wide receiver to friend-zone her and pursue someone else, she’s determined to focus on herself and stop being everyone’s trusty sidekick and shoulder to cry on. But when she stumbles upon a naked hockey player tied to a tree in the middle of the night, Sabrina’s life is thrown upside down. Because when you leave someone tied to a tree, they eventually get free.
A New Adult Sports Romance in the For You Standalone series. This is book three. Each book follows a new couple and can be read as a complete standalone.
His fingers, spread on my hips, slipped around to my stomach. I wanted to fight it. Wanted to step away from him. But the hum of my body wouldn’t allow it. He lowered his head, burying his nose into my neck. “You smell amazing.”
Though my thighs quivered, I tried to remain indifferent. “It’s called sweat.”
His body shook with laughter. “Well, then I’d like nothing more than to taste your sweat.”
The thought of his lips on my neck sent a delicious shiver rocking through me. “Do lines like that normally work for you?”
“Who said it’s a line?” His hands slipped under the hem of my shirt and coasted across my stomach. “God, you feel amazing.”
“You’re a horny guy. Of course, I do.”
He shook his head, his nose running along my jawline. “I may be horny, but you still feel right in my arms. I’m wondering how you’d feel beneath me.”
I jerked away from his grasp, spinning to face him. “That.” I jammed my finger into his chest. “That right there is why this was a bad idea.” The traitorous hum of my body persisted as the lights flashed across his confused face. “It’s like you’re capable of being normal for like two minutes then you turn into an asshole. I don’t get it. And I’m over it.”

"No one wanted to be hurt, and letting people in was a sure-fire way to do that."
I happened upon J. Nathan's debut novel by accident and I've been patting myself on the back ever since. She's such a talented author and her stories never fail to keep me engrossed from start to finish.
I have to give the author credit for coming up with a unique way for the two main characters to meet. It makes me smile every time I think about Sabrina finding Crosby tied to a tree...naked.
Of course, Crosby is angry about what had been done to him. But he most definitely took the wrong approach to requesting that Sabrina help him out of his predicament. It's too bad they didn't gag him when they tied him up because his mouth just made his situation worse. Sabrina was not one of the simpering puck bunnies who would drool over his physique and do anything he asked. She'd been the wingman for long enough, always there to save the day, listening and supporting everyone else. Well, now it was her turn. She didn't have time for silly games and arrogant assholes.
For Crosby was so entertaining. The sparks flew between #MrHockey and the #IceQueen from the very beginning. Their arguments were heated and their banter was hilarious. I knew it was just a matter of time before they gave into their attraction, but what fun it was to see them fight it and each other. I was also thrilled to spend more time with Finlay and Caden. As Sabrina's roommate, Finlay had a front-row seat to the show and I enjoyed her commentary.
As always there are good guys, bad guys, secrets, and surprises as the story unfolds. I was gripping my Kindle with anticipation one minute and then ready to throw it the next. What an amazing cast of characters, including several that I hope to get to know much better in a future installment. The line forms here...
J. Nathan is the author of new adult and sports romances with cocky heroes and sassy heroines. When she's not writing, she's a total romance junkie! Add an alpha male who's unlikable in the beginning...even better. She loves watermelon margaritas, guys in backward hats, country music, the summertime, and her amazing family and friends.
