I love the geek girl, jock guy story of opposites attracting. Gives that small glimmer of hope.

Delaney is different. She doesn't conform. She wears cat eye glasses, wears her long blonde hair all sorts of ways, and makes a lot of her own clothes. She meets Maverick her freshman year of college. They briefly converse and move on.

But Maverick has never forgotten Delaney.Two years later and Delaney has sworn off all football players, but Maverick is determined to prove that not all football players are players. 

And there is definitely more to Maverick than meets the eye. Will Delaney learn to trust and will Maverick let her in enough to spill all his secrets? Definitely one click this now.
Nerd girl meets football jock and there are fireworks, but not everything happens immediately. Delany is her own person and isn't the student that goes out and parties all of the time. Maverick, on the other hand, is a star football player that everyone is watching. They don't seem like they belong together, but that might be what brings them together. Two years after meeting, they may have their chance...if life doesn't get in the way. Will they make it work? 

This book was enjoyable and I liked how even though a plotline like this could be rushed, it wasn't. The flow was steady and kept the reader engaged. On top of that, the characters were real and likable, and there was depth to them. 4 stars and I recommend that you one click this book today.
