#bookreview Jock Road by Sara Ney #romance #contemporary #newadult

I am back again…. I think, I think I finally got the balancing act down with my new gig. After 20 years in the financial industry I made the decision to be a stay at home mom.

It’s difficult y’all trying to balance three kids. I thought I would have had more time for blogging etc.. but I found that I needed to really get myself acclimated into my new world.

I must say, I am so exhausted but I am having fun spending time with my newborn and getting to spend some more quality time with the older girls.

Enough about me and back to the book…



Those are Jackson Jennings, Jr’s three mantras. His entire life, he’s been a trained athlete with only one end-game: the Pro’s. No girls. No parties. No alcohol. 



Every Friday night, Triple J cruises the strip on campus, bored, lonely and conditioned not to party. But the night he meets Charlotte Edmonds on the side of the road, he wonders if his three mantras will ever be enough. 


Charlie has no time for Jackson’s antics. Not when he’s stealing her food or teases her to no end, making her tingle in all the right places. But if she’s ever going to have a boyfriend, she’d choose one who isn’t a Neanderthal. One with manners and actual time to spend with her. Not a hulking man-child who cruises the strip at night, in his Big. Dumb. Truck.


I am all over the place with this one. I so wanted to love this book. I have read other books written by Sara that I enjoyed but this book seemed very incomplete.


I don’t know what it is, possibly it’s her condescending attitude or how she stereotypes people. I just did not like Charlie’s character at all. She seemed blah… just blah….


Jackson character was very refreshing. The level of vulnerability his character exhibited captivated me. Yes, he is sexy and HOT 🔥 but the depth of his character carried this book. The emotions that he goes through is gripping.

The book ended weird and left me feeling very incomplete. There were so many questions left unanswered. The chemistry between Charlie and Jackson was not there. The characters didn’t develop. The story seemed rushed.
