Worst Lines: “Twelve hours later, I was literally asleep on my feet, exhausted.” – really?! Literally?


Personal Review:

This was a so-so romance between a famous quarterback and an Australian (whose job title I still don’t know!).

The last 30% dragged and it was also where most of the immaturity occurred. My initial interest in Will and Emma’s reduced when Will clearly told her that his career was more important than hers. Emma is then the one who goes grovelling to Will which I disagreed with.

Random Ramblings:

  • Awkward Encounters with Emma and the Quarterback” – sounds like the title of a good book


  •  The h was supposed to be 24 I think but the H was 30…was immature at times
  • The ending felt rushed and completely ruined it for me
  • The banter was good in the beginning but then it just fizzled out

Overall Feeling:
