When Lizzy snuck into the players-only area of the stadium, all she wanted was an autograph from all star football player, AJ Lott. She never expected them to have an instant connection. Or for him to track her down, despite her attempts to stay out of the limelight…
The Football Pants Chronicles is a standalone Tessa Bailey wrote as fanfiction. I rarely read any sports romance but this is already second one from Tessa Bailey that I enjoy.
“Where do you want me to go, Lizzie? Hell? Hell is where I’m going if I stop kissing you.”
Lizzy only snuck into the stadium to get an autograph from AJ Lott for her grandfather. He’s far from her type but she can’t help but become tongue- tied around him. Lizzie knew that she should turn him down, especially because her past could ruin his future.
“Don’t leave me with all this love and nowhere to put it.”
Nice male characters can be annoying but AJ isn’t one of them. He isn’t pushover and he fights for what he wants. And AJ knows from the second he meets Lizzy that he wants her and he’s possessive of her. I love that even though AJ’s popular and clearly many people adore him– he’s not cocky or a player. I sometimes get sick of reading about male characters who just sleep around. AJ isn’t only great guy but he’s also clumsy, breaking things a lot.
The romance was so sweet from beginning to the epilogue. AJ always put Lizzie first and this book reminded me why I sometimes love insta love so much. Lizzy and AJ both had this attraction they couldn’t explain and just wanted best for each other.
