Now I won’t say that Sawyer was the sort of man that I could like straight off the bat but I will say that over the course of the book, I grew to love him almost as much as Gretchen did. But he didn’t make it easy on me, he really was a more than a bit of an ass. He had an ego the size of Texas and the entourage that gave his substance to his delusion.
But when the author lifted back the corners and gave me a chance to see the man underneath, I began to see that there was more to this character than he was willing to show.
Gretchen got more than she bargained for when she got to know Sawyer, because despite the fact that she believed much of what she pertained to know about him, and wanted to teach him a lesson so to speak, in truth she never really knew him at all, but getting to spend time with him opened her eyes and her heart and this enigmatic man muscled his way in.
I hated that there were lies between the two of them, that they were playing games so to speak because I knew that when the truth was unveiled they were going to be left picking up the pieces of a relationship that had the makings of being able to go the distance.
This was an angst read, although at times I thought the angst was unnecessary it did create a story that both ebbed and flowed. I know there are some situations in the book that may push some reader’s sensitive button but I have to say while it took me a while to get with the program, I enjoyed the read.
I've got to admit Sawyer grew on me as I kept reading but something just didn't click with me.
I really liked Gretchen. She was a strong feisty character. She was holding a grudge with Sawyer and wanted revenge.
I found this to be a steamy read with enough angst to keep me gripped. Gotta say I loved the epilogue.
You think it’s going to be about a woman-hopping football player brought to his knees by a good girl, but it was so much more.
“Nothing left me breathless the way Gretchen did. It was painful – physically and mentally. I was cracking under the strain.”
Sawyer is a freshman and star quarterback on the college football team. He only needs to looks at girls to make them drop their panties. They all want him. No one ever says no to him. Until Gretchen.
“I couldn’t let myself fall into his trap, but something deep in my stomach told me it was a little too late for that.”
Gretchen wants Sawyer’s attention. Not because she fancies him, as he’s so far away from her ideal type, but because she has a whole other agenda going on. However, once she has his attention, they begin a bit of a cat-and-mouse, push and pull relationship.
“Sweet. Gretchen was sweet. My heart sank to my stomach, making me feel sick. I never thought it was possible, but I was seriously considering the ideas that maybe Gretchen Cole was the perfect woman.”
Forget getting her into bed, Sawyer has enough of a fight to even get a kiss from her. He lusts after her like nobody’s business, and she confuses and confounds him at every turn. Her eyes are telling him one thing, but her mouth is saying the opposite. Just as he decides to back off from her coldness, she draws him back with her hotness. Sawyer’s desire for Gretchen was compelling and intense.
Just as he lets his guard down, a secret she has been withholding rips his heart apart. A betrayal of the worst sort.
My goodness, Sawyer is such a cocky, crude guy.Read more ›
Sawyer Reed is our resident man-ho, and star quarterback of Camden University. He is arrogant with a capital A, completely narcissistic and does not really care about the women he leaves in his trail. He is cocky and entitled, and because of all these traits, I was hoping to fall head over heels for him in a big way, because these guys usually have big soft hearts hidden in their big hard bodies.
Our cliché virgin, Gretchen Cole doesn't know what the other girls see in him, all she can see is a man who is used to getting what he wants and she isn't about to bow down to him, especially since she has an ulterior motive for getting to know him.
Sawyer decides he wants what he can't have and so he finds ways to befriend Gretchen and slowly he breaks down her walls.
I admit, I did enjoy this story and it kept me on my toes and all, but the actions of Sawyer were just too much for me and I did not really warm to him at all.
Overall, it had great potential, I liked the plot and even if certain parts of it were a bit dubious, it still made for a good read. Had it not been for Sawyer's many indiscretions, I would have rated this four stars, but my enjoyment was severely let down by this turn of events and I never really believed in his true love for Gretchen.
Sacked is a standalone new adult sports romance, told in dual POV.

I really quite enjoyed this book which, if I'm honest, is a bit of a surprise. I'm not sure all of the elements of the story are actually believable and it did seem to end rather... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Lou
I don't think this was a good book for me because I want to like the main characters in a book. And Sawyer Reed was completely unlikable. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Irma
