I’m the girl from the school of hard knocks. 

Nothing has ever come easy for me. So forgive me if I’m a bit reluctant about Kincaid Griffin – born-with-a-silver-spoon in his mouth, conceited college hoops player. A guy who could get any girl he wants, and yet, is suddenly everywhere I am trying to woo me. The more I protest, the more persistent he becomes. 

I’m a lucky guy. 

Let’s face it. As a college athlete, I don’t chase girls – they come to me. I’m as arrogant and cocky as they come, getting nearly everything I want, whenever I want. But there is nothing sweeter than a girl who plays hard to get. And Ainsley Locker is so full of confidence that she knocks me off my feet from the moment I meet her. She’s a challenge. And I like challenges. So I go full-court press to win her over. 

But when a stupid mistake turns viral, slam dunking all over my life in a media frenzy, my spot on the team may be in jeopardy, along with my shot at winning the girl. 
To be fair, I started reading this in August 2017 and due to life circumstances and my going back to work outside the home full time, reading took a serious back seat in my priorities. I would read here and there over the next 4 months but could never get really into the story to want to push faster to finish it. What I did read (80% to be exact) had moments of interest but it was mostly predictable, a tad cheesy, and had quite a few eye rolling moments.

I didn't have the time or energy to read at a faster pace and after 4 months felt it was necessary to "move on" and consider this one a DNF.

Favorite Quote:
Everyone - and everything - in this life is deserving of some form of human kindness.
