Book Review- Drumline by Stacy Kestwick


Contemporary New Adult Romance
POV: Dual
Heat Level: Moderate

Traditions are important. Especially in the South. 
College football. Rivalries. Tailgating. Halftime shows.
Some things just don’t change.
Until Reese Holland shows up with her long legs and no-bullshit attitude to audition for the prestigious all-male Rodner University snare line.
It doesn’t matter how much hazing she has to endure from Laird Bronson, with his narrowed green eyes and arrogant smirk. She wants that damn spot, and she’s more than good enough to earn it. 
She expects there to be tension. Even friction. 
But not sparks hot enough to burn the entire campus down.

♦♦♦ My Thoughts ♦♦♦

This was OK but certainly not great.

This was light and fun to read and sometimes you just need a book like this every now and then. There was also amazing sexual tension with some OK steamy scenes with a dirty talking hero. The female MC also had to prove herself worthy of her position in the drumline (an exclusively male position) and did an awesome job of rising to that challenge.

The story for me just did not flow well. There were so many things going and I found myself forgetting bits of information here and then there throughout the book. The hero also at times had little moments where he would either walk away or stand up the heroine when he was upset. Mind you he was upset with other people , not the heroine herself. That was very frustrating.
There was also a side character Eli who was supposed to be 8 years old but talked and acted at minimum like a 12 or 13 year old. The fact that this 8 year old by was so interested in girls and had such a mature understanding of adult issues was quite annoying. It just didn’t make sense.

Overall this was OK but I would have been OK not reading this one.
