Synopsis (Goodreads):
Scarlett is always the sensible one: The sober driver. The planner. The one holding your hair back while you're worshiping the porcelain gods.

Week-after-week, she visits Jock Row with her friends—the university's hottest party scene and breeding ground for student athletes. And if keeping her friends out of trouble, and guys out of their pants, was a sport, she'd be the star athlete.

Being a well known jock-blocker gets her noticed for all the wrong reasons; just like that, she's banned from Jock Row. NO GUY WANTS A GIRL AROUND WHO KEEPS THEIR JOCK FRIENDS FROM GETTING LAID.

"Rowdy" Wade is the hot shot short-stop for the university's baseball team—and the unlucky bastard who drew the short straw: keep little Miss Goody Two-Shoes out of the Baseball House.

But week-after-week Scarlett returns, determined to get inside.
Thoughts on Jock Row: Oh my goodness, I loved Rowdy and Scarlett together. They're just so adorably cute. ADORABLY. From Scarlett's sly innuendo to Rowdy's much more in-your-face innuendo to the way she feeds him because he's ALWAYS hungry. I don't know. These two worked for me. SO HARD.

Flat out, I liked their silly games that allowed them to get to know one another while they were wiling away the time Scarlett was on her time-out. I liked that Rowdy found a way to keep her to himself without being a total douchecanoe about it. I liked that Rowdy decided he wasn't going to back down once he realized how important she was to him. And I loved, loved, loved Rowdy's mom. She really was the hip, cool mom. Especially when she was taking notes for her next book. (What? that amused me. A LOT.)

Bottom line: a sweet romance (sure, sure, Rowdy's dirty talking was more on the raunchy side, but he's just so darn adorable with Scarlett it comes off as sweet. I dunno. I think I have a thing for dirty talking college athletes with a hidden cuddly side.) and a FANTASTIC start to a new series. I'm all in for the next book. I seriously can't wait.
