Former college football star Jake Dublin’s wildly popular sports blog also details his personal life. And lately it’s all about Sophie, the pretty young woman who just moved into his apartment building. His readers know her only as “Elevator Girl,” and they’re all rooting for Jake to score.

The blog posts and banter with his followers are all in good fun, and he fully intends to come clean with the woman he’s wooing and wowing. That is, until she confides that she grew up in a house full of jocks and even dated a few. Her verdict? Never again!

Jake knows he needs to confess. But somewhere along the line he fell in love with Sophie and can’t stand the thought of losing her. So he procrastinates, and blogs, and digs himself deeper into a hole, until it all leads to a showdown that’s so nail-biting, not even the best play-by-play guy could ever have seen it coming.

My rating:

So cute! This is one of those stories that you read with a constant smile on your face. I just couldn't help it. Whether it was the hero's blog posts or the hero's attempts at coming clean with the heroine...I just smiled.

It was cute, it was sweet, it was short, and it was PG (don't judge this one by the cover). I didn't mind the blog post chapters (not all of them were like that). The only problem I had was with the heroine (but the problem was minor, more of a hiccup). I didn't get her reasoning—at first, she didn't want a jock, then she panicked when she thought the guy hated sports. Talk about running hot and cold.

Still, a nice little shorty.
