Review of The Quarterbacks Secret by Kylie King

Zach Taylor is in his prime. He’s star quarterback of his college and, of course, all the girls clamor over him. Life is going great for the campus star...that is, until his best friend’s little sister transfers to the school.

Zach remembers little Janie Fuller all too well. She’s the same girl who snuck around with him at night behind her brother’s back, and the same girl who asked Zach to be her first. 
Zach doesn’t remember many girls’ names, but he will never forget what he did with little Janie. Now she’s all grown up, and she knows exactly what she wants: her brother’s best friend.

Zach & Janie’s past soon catches up with them, and the secret crush they harbored years ago returns full force. Neither of them will be able to resist one another, and their struggle to keep their forbidden affair under wraps will be much harder than they expected.

 I liked Janie she was resistant but didn't deny herself. I like women characters who know what they want, consequences be damned. Zach on the other hand, was painted very poorly for me in the beginning. If I'm being honest I was skeeved out in the beginning by their relationship before college. I don't know how I felt about the crass way the felatio was mentioned by a highschool girl. I enjoy smut and dirty in my books, but when dealing with high schoolers, I like it a little more class and less crass. It may be for you but not for me. 
The story was sweet and the of age sex was good and hot. My last two gripes are forced conflicts. Janie assumed something and didn't let him explain and went on to make everyone miserable. She really let me down, she was painted as such a modern woman in the beginning and then falls for this unoriginal drama. I didn't like that. I wanted her to talk to him, go with him DO something. What is it with characters in the book that don't communicate?
I was all ready to write this book off but then I read the author's bio and it said to not take it too seriously and I realized that maybe I was taking it too seriously.I do regret that I didn't let it go sooner though because Zach was really sweet and the story isn't that bad once I got over all my personal hang ups and suspended my beliefs and just enjoyed the story for what it was. The ending was really sweet and made me feel better about the book overall. I will recommend this book for people who like short, sweet and spicy reads. I just warn that you have to go in with an open mind, or you'll waste so much of the book that you could be enjoying. 

Kylie King is a soccer mom by day, and a writer of ridiculously smutty romances by night. She loves reading, swimming, and mixed drinks that include lots of rum.

All of her books are quick and hot, with over-the-top fantasies that probably shouldn't be taken too seriously.
