Me Against the QB was an interesting blend of forced proximity, chemistry and connection.
From the blurb:
Bodie thought his homework was done when he graduated from college, but no such luck. His new assignment: prove to his dad he can handle clients by babysitting a wild NFL player in the off season.
Colby is a handful for any agent and he can’t stay out of the press, for all the wrong reasons.
Forced to stay in his agent’s summer home under the watchful eye of a young innocent ex-hockey player, Colby will seek any and all thrills available, even if that thrill comes in the form of corrupting a certain shy jock…
Bodie was an interesting character that for me took a while to get into.... he was in a life transition and sort of felt like a fish out of water through a lot of the book....
Colby, on the other hand, seems like a player and an opportunist... until you start peeling back some of the layers. As I read into the book, I liked Colby more and more and waited for Bodie to come into his own... which he did more slowly.
I liked the opposites attract, the connection and the sizzle in Me Against the QB and I love how they built each other up over time, but I did struggle to stay in the story in a few places.
