College football’s most notorious tight end wants to show her that everything’s bigger in Texas.


I can’t stand jocks. And I don’t know the first thing about football.

So it’s just my luck that the tutoring job I take to get me through graduate school involves making sure a dumb jock passes his classes.

Now, I’m babysitting Colton King, a spoiled arrogant player who’s as famous for his bedroom antics as he is for his football skills.

The tight end with the filthy mouth tells me he’ll show me that everything’s bigger in Texas.

And heaven help me, I just might be considering it.

* * *


My life is one big party, and that’s never going to change.

Not even if my coach finds me a nerdy tutor he thinks will keep me in line.
Miss Goody Two Shoes is uptight, high-strung, and unimpressed by the fact that I’m a campus legend.

Even worse, the hot little tutor is as pure as the driven snow.

Debauching her and making her mine is the ultimate challenge. And I always rise to the occasion.

*This is not a football-heavy story, so if you're not into sports, don't worry! It's light on the sports and heavy on the steam!*

I decided to read Tackled because I read and loved The Deal by Elle Kennedy. The Deal starred a popular “star” jock and an incredibly smart heroine who tutored him. The hero in The Deal cared about his future and his education. He was having a great time being a star player but he was intelligent as well.

I DNF’d Tackled because I hated the hero, Colton. He was a total jackass with no real plans for the future. In all honesty, from the 16% that I read, he read like a Johnny “Football” Manziel: A privileged hot mess of a person with very few redeeming qualities and a definite bend towards self-destruction. In addition to that, Colton seems to lack even basic respect for women. Not my cup of tea. At all.

“…her sister is your biggest fan. You know what that means, dude.”

I groan. I know what that means. When a girl is my biggest fan, I can get her to do anything. If means blowjobs in the backseat of the car on the way to my place, getting my fill of her, and then kicking her ass out the door. They’re always grateful to have gotten a piece of me.”
Tackled, 16%

The beginning of Tackled has the heroine meeting the hero at his house: he lives off campus and was throwing a party (instead of studying). The heroine comes in and is treated to the hero jumping off of the roof into the pool. He is buck naked and covered in lube. The pool is full of half-naked co-eds and the hero sticks his head directly into a pair of welcoming boobs. THEN he calls the heroine a stripper because she’s professionally dressed.

WTF. Seriously. I…just can’t. I felt my I.Q. dropping with every word I read. But the cover is hot.
