Our Review

“You’re like the best of both worlds – hot jock meets hot nerd.”
“All I just heard was you calling me hot.”

If first impressions are anything to go by, Rebecca Jenshak’s introduction to everyone at Valley U was a winner! We were left hungry for more and had to jump straight into The Fadeaway, the next book in Smart Jocks series the minute we finished The Assist, and we are loving that book so far!!!

Whilst you could technically read these books as standalone’s we think you’d be doing yourselves and the characters a disservice by not becoming acquainted with the Smart Jocks Trio and their deep friendships and the girls who steal their hearts, which begins in The Assist.

If you’re looking for something a little different in the sports romance college trope, then read The Assist. It was refreshing to see the stereotypical college jock scenario flipped on its head by introducing us to Wes Reynolds, the broody basketballer gifted with a photographic memory and who is anything but a ‘dumb jock‘. In fact, not only is Wes seriously good looking, sexy and loyal to a fault, he’s intelligent to boot, though, on first impressions, he did seem rather menacing!

‘I’m lost and exactly where I should be all at once.’

We were taken instantly with Rebecca Jenshak’s The Assist. The prologue developed unexpectedly and heartbreakingly which laid the groundwork for the indecision Blair would face in her college year, and how it would shape her personality and life a year down the track.

‘Looking at her heals and breaks me.’

We loved the execution of the sports theme in this book. The ambience, the excitement and the disappointments were captured impeccably. We felt as though we were a part of the thrills and spills, not merely reading about their exploits on the court and in the locker room.

Three hot basketballers, Wes Reynolds, Joel Moreno and Zeke (Z) Sweets, make up a sexy yet slightly intimidating trio whose stories we’ll be devouring in the Smart Jocks series. They’re three mates, who share a passion for basketball and camaraderie that lit up this story! We loved the dynamics between these guys and cannot wait to devour Joel and Zeke’s stories!

Wes is at a crossroads. An A grade student and basketballer who would do anything for his team yet who is battling with an injury which could hamper his dreams. Sorority girl Blair Olsen is in a bind. She’s is being blackmailed by her ex and she’s flunking statistics class. Despite her situation, Blair really exudes optimism and she’ll need all her resolve to ask the sexy and egotistical Wes Reynolds for help. Who knew this hot jock would be her lifeline to passing her class?

‘On the court, I saw everything. But off the court? I never saw her coming.’

We adored their friendship and their eventual relationship. Through their ups and downs, Blair and Wes bounced off one another perfectly. Blair’s cheerfulness was a balm to Wes’s grouchiness, and boy did she give him a run for his money by keeping his ego in check.

The Assist delivered everything we love about this theme. Wes and Blair’s story swept us off our feet and cannot wait for more!

Synopsis

You know those stories where the smart girl tutors the dumb jock? This isn’t it.

Blair
What’s the probability of insulting the one guy on campus I need to help me pass statistics? If I knew, I wouldn’t be standing in front of Wes Reynolds begging him to tutor me.

Basketball player, sexy, arrogant, always sleeping through class… these are the things I knew about him. What I didn’t know is that he is a seriously smart jock.

Wes
What’s the best way to get rid of the peppy and unrelenting girl that keeps asking me to tutor her? If I knew, I wouldn’t be staring at her tan legs and attempting to teach her statistics.

Sorority girl, fine as f**k, determined, ball buster… these are the things I knew about her. What I didn’t know is that she is all the things I didn’t realize I wanted or needed.

Or that one semester with her would change everything.
