Recovering from a pulled groin muscle isn’t exactly how I planned to spend my much-needed summer vacation.
But I’ll admit, being nursed back to health by my gorgeous friend Bailey, who’s just graduated from medical school, doesn’t exactly sound like a hardship.
We spend a week together at my family’s beach house, a week of swimming and barbecues, a week of entertaining my little cousins and sleeping right across the hall from each other. A week of watching Bailey grow closer with my mom and sisters, and my wacky but lovable grandma. A week of enjoying Bailey tending to me—which is saying something, because it involves a lot of shoving ice packs into my underwear and taping up sore muscles.
She’s funny and kind, and after just being myself for the first time in a long time, I find my walls come tumbling down. But when Bailey says she’s not looking for a relationship, I’m bound and determined to be more than just the fun hookup who sprained his groin a second time—this time with her.
Hockey butt — it’s a thing and it’s glorious. Google it.
Asher and Bailey are hands down my favorite couple when it comes the Hot Jocks series. I LOVED everything about the two of them from their friendship, relationship and the banter between the two of them.
Asher is nursing some injuries and wants to go home to visit his family, only downside is that he needs a doctor with him to travel. Enter Bailey. She has some time before she starts her residency and volunteers for the job. She gets a vacation and to spend time with her friend. Asher is the playboy image, however, there is so much more to him. He loves his family and he loves hockey. Bailey is hardworking. She loves her career and with being in med school didn’t have much time to do anything else.
Asher and Bailey had so much chemistry. It was bursting off the pages. They had so many sweet moments throughout the story but their relationship also doesn’t lack in passion. Their interactions were sweet and funny, too. I just couldn’t get enough of Asher and Bailey.
Asher’s family was a blast. From his parents, to his sisters, to his nieces but his grandmother Lollie stole the show. She is hilarious and everything you love about a grandmother.
Crossing the Line is a MUST READ and if you love friends to lovers sports romances or even just feel good romances this is one that I’d highly recommend. Kendall Ryan knocked it out of the park.
