Publisher's Summary

Kip Carmichael is no pretty boy. He's rough. Dirty. Giant. Hair so unruly, and a beard so thick, his friends on the team call him Sasquatch.  

The first time Sasquatch lays eyes on Theodora "Teddy" Johnson across the keg at a party one night on Jock Row, she'd been relegated to the sidelines by her jock-hungry "friends". Week after week, he watches beautiful but bashful Teddy getting overshadowed and overlooked. 

Sasquatch finally broad-shoulders his way through the crowd, offering to to be her hairy godmother. But the minute their eyes meet? He's a goner.  

Teaching her the rules for winning a jock will be the easy part. Not falling in love with her is going to be a losing game.

Hot and sweet young love

Great narration really added to this story. This book is a college romance. What really made this story stand out to me are the descriptions of the feelings of awkwardness felt by the characters. It reminds me of being young and I experienced with life and relationships.

Jock Rule

Ok this was my favorite so far, I love how very different they are but how their friendship grew. And then it grew even more.
I just had all the happy feelings and all the smiles. I cracked up a few times too. I just really enjoyed this book. I loved that Kip was so close to his sister and that she really was a part of this story even though she was only a text.

Loved the narration both Chelsea and Jacob hit it out of the park.

I adored every second of this one!!

Sara Ney really knows how to deliver a wonderful story through and through! I loved every second of this story! I listen to A LOT of audible's and I have found that it is a lot harder to make me just so pleased when I am finished with a book and this one did it all for me! I was so happy when I was done, my heart was full and I was completely satisfied. I was a happy girl! lol okay moving on... I loved Kip SO freaking much, he is freaking hilarious, hot and broody in all the right ways and then Teddy, I adored her too! they are seriously perfect for one another. I was dying laughing the whole time it was amazing. Jacob and Chelsea were perfection together! I hope to hear them again very soon.
I highly recommend this book!!

Sweet and adorable

Kip Carmichael is one hairy, bearded giant - to the point that his team calls him Sasquatch. Every week, he watches Theodora 'Teddy' Johnson at the parties held at the rugby house. Talk about wallflower - her "jock hungry" friends always ditch her and she even ends up "bartending" for the crowd. Though Kip avoids getting involved with girls completely for reasons, he's drawn by the beautiful but shy Teddy who's always overshadowed by her loud friends. He befriends her and proposes a strange "Pygmalion" deal: he'll teach her how to get a jock. Slight problem: he might want her for himself.

I wanted a sweet, low angsty book after the little swim I took in the dark romance pool and this was just perfect! A short audiobook (around 6 hours long), it just hit the spot. Kip has his (very new adult-y) reasons for hiding under all that incredible amount of hair and I loved how Teddy fell for the Sasquatch anyway, making it a Pygmalion/Beauty and The Beast mash-up and it's all sorts of adorable. 

I specially loved their inner monologues and Kip's, especially, are sweet and hilarious. 

I adored the relationship he has with his sister and their text exchanges are a riot!

Second book in a series that can totally be read as a standalone.  Sweet, sexy, fun. 

Narration: Confession time - I picked because it was Jacob Morgan. Pfft, you know me by now... lol His Kip is just adorable! Chelsea Hatfield is new to me, I believe (though she sounds familiar...).

Hairy Godmother!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Narration: 🎙🎙🎙🎙
Romance: 💙💚🖤💜❤️
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📕📗📘📙📔
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 🧐🤨🙄🤤😘

The Hero: Kip (a.k.a. Sasquatch) - a 6’4”, well built rugby player from a wealthy background. He wants to focus on school and rugby so he hides behind long hair and a beard. He is unapproachable and doesn’t want any entanglements.

The heroine: Teddy - She is a doormat for her friends. She comes from a single parent household where her mom had to work two jobs to get by. Teddy wants nothing more than to be stable and not have worry about money.

The Story: Teddy goes to a party on Jock Row with her roommate and friends, she ends up going to get them beers since her friends use her any chance they get. While waiting around the keg, Kip sees her from his position against the wall and the next weekend at another rugby party he sees her again, doing the same thing. He feels the need to talk to her.

When a fight breaks out, Kip helps Teddy out of the party and when she finds that her “Friend” is bringing a guy home to their shared one bedroom apartment. Kip offers to let her stay at his place and they get to talking. He tells her that she will never get a boyfriend the way she has been at parties and offers to be her “Hairy Godmother” and give her tips to get a guy.

This book is told in dual points of view and is narrated by Chelsea Hatfield and Jacob Morgan. This was dual narration where Jacob did the chapters in the male POV and Chelsea did the chapters in the female POV. I like these two narrators and really enjoy Sara Ney’s sports romance books. This was a terrific one. I loved that Kip is trying to keep his wealth on the DL and that Teddy is a shy girl finding her voice.

This had everything I love about the new adult sports romance. A hot guy with lots of muscles (even though his hotness was hidden by a lot of hair), college parties, snarky girls, and both main characters with backstories that get in the way. I also love that they become friends before anything happens between them. I really enjoyed the friendship and the romance between these two.

Burly mountain man Kip is happy to distance himself from people and focus on rugby. Teddy is just looking to put herself out there and find a better relationship then the one her parents had. When they meet, their banter is so funny and Sara does not disappoint. This one is my favorite of the series because the two of them work so well together.

Sweet and romantic.

This is a sweet, romantic and old fashioned romance. The author has old fashioned values, which makes a pleasant chance; with a twist.

Fantastically Fun Read/Listen

Sara Ney has been able to capture a subtle art of flirting, sarcastic humour and the feelings as they progress through their story.
Both Chelsea and Jacob do a wonderful job of narrating Ney’s Jock Rule. This is one book I have already read more than a few times and don’t doubt I will be reading it again.

Enjoyed it but.....

I was really, REALLY looking forward to listening to this one. There's something about the male character being the outsider - that really appeals to me, and while the story itself was enjoyable, the female narrator ruined it for me. I understand that I'm listening to teenagers - but Teddy sounded a bit whiny and immature - and that did not correlate to Teddy's character at all.

I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read this instead of listening to it. The only reason I kept going was honestly because of Jacob Morgan and his performance.

Uugghhh

Just no. The female narrator just doesn’t live up to Jacob Morgan. She just makes the bad writing sound as bad as it is - Whiny and annoying and juvenile.
