This college jock is a total player. He’s used to getting who and what he wants. Until her... Katrina The hottest guy on campus won’t stop asking me out. I know that sounds like a good problem to have, but this guy… this guy has no idea how complicated my life is trying to juggle being a single mom and college student. Every Thursday, he shows up at the café where I work. His cheesy pickup lines and arrogance should have me completely annoyed. I’m not. I can’t say yes, but Thursday is my favorite day of the week. Joel The hottest girl on campus won’t go out with me. I know, I know, that sounds presumptuous, but this girl… this girl has gotten under my skin, and I can’t seem to walk away. Every Thursday, I show up at the café where she works. She’s fed me every excuse in the book. I should give up and bang one of the many girls blowing up my phone. I’m not. Even when she says no, Thursday is my favorite day of the week.

4 stars   The Fadeaway is about a sexy college basketball player, Joel, who avoids relationships due to being seriously hurt by his high school girlfriend.  Katrina is a young mom to her adorable 3 year-old son and I love how she is a dedicated mom and is striving to fulfill her dream of completely college.  I like how Katrina “Kitty” continually rebuffed Joel as I found myself laughing when he got all bent out of shape as no girl has ever refused him before.  Joel completely closes himself off to relationships as a means of protecting himself so at times I just wanted to shake him and say “Let down your wall as you’ve got an amazing girl!”. The two make a great couple and I desperately wanted them to have their HEA.  It was also great to see the appearance of characters from the previous book in the series, The Assist as well as Joel's awesome large family.  They are humorous, loyal, and also have great insight.  The Fadeaway is a well-written college sports romance with likable, well-developed characters with a good storyline that moves at good pace. The Fadeaway is book 2 in this author’s Smart Jocks series and it can be read as a standalone.  Although, I do recommend reading The Assist because it is so good!  I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series. I received this book for free.
