ARC Review: Free Baller by Rie Warren

This is the second book in the Carolina Crush football/romance series. You don't have to read these books in order but if you skip the first book, this one is going to open with an entire spoiler of the plot in book #1. I've also read the last book in this series and it doesn't contain as much spoilage of this one as Free Baller does of book #1. So read as a standalone if you want but if you plan to read the whole series, start with book #1. If you already read book #1 and didn't love it, the plot of this one is totally different. I like Warren's writing but I hated the direction the story went in during the first installment. You don't need to worry about similar themes in this book, it's quite different.

This is the story of Brooklyn and Delaney. Brooks is a recent divorcee who is the tight end for the crazy and completely entertaining Carolina Crush. Because of Brooks unsatisfactory history with romantic relationships, when this book begins, he's committed to nothing more than "no strings" hooking up. That changes when he meets and immediately becomes obsessed with Delaney.  Delaney is the QB of Carolina's uber hot/scantily clad female football team, the Carolina Cougars. I did some serious eye rolling regarding a bunch of super hot women tackling each other but whatevs.

Brooks really meets his match with Delaney and I think that is one of the things I like about this book so much. Delaney is not a hook up type of girl and she refuses to change that for Brooks. Brooks has to decide to take Delaney strings and all and he does. After Brooks makes that decision, Delaney doesn't just trust that he has made some miraculous change. Brooks has to do a little pursuing and we get to see how intense he can be and how Delaney can match him.

 The other thing I like about this book is the banter between the characters. All the Carolina football series are wildly entertaining and this is no exception. All of the football players make appearances in all of the books and shenanigans ensues whenever everyone is together. Oh and I did I mention that Rie Warren books are ALWAYS smoking hot when it comes to the actual hooking up. I mean, oh my damn. There is some stuff in all of these books that you really don't want to be reading out in public. 

Fun book, great characters, hot sex. I recommend this one.
