Football God. Ladies Man. Campus Celebrity.
Guys want to be me and girls want to bed me.
Commitment? What’s that?

Player. Persistent. Pain in the Pom-Pom.
I don’t care if he’s the star of the gridiron or how tight his end is.
I know his stats both on and off the field. My answer will always be 𝗡𝗢.
The last thing I need in my life is another charmer who’s looking to score.
LOOKING TO SCORE is book 1 in the U of J Series and is an enemies-to-lovers, new adult, college sports romance. If you like pint-sized sass queens for heroines, and too-charming-for-their-own-good playboy heroes you’ll love these two. There’s banter for days…so much so that these two characters are the stars of books 1, 2, and 3.

I read this series over the course of the last few months and I will say, I did enjoy it. Typically, I don’t like romance book series unless each book covers a different character. When romance plots are over multiple books I usually find them annoying, there is some stupid drama (which there still was) and I just expected the HEA to happen in the first book. While some of those feelings did persist, Alley Ciz was great at finishing off each book and literally have been dying to read the next book.
The story line covers the classic man whore of a college jock and the girl who pays him no mind. While this trope is in no way original, I loved how the toxicity of social media was discussed in detail in this series. Social media and people’s incessant need to gossip and know what others are doing is so detrimental to people’s mental health, and I am glad that was covered in this series.
I did quite like both of the characters, though Mason’s and Kayla’s inner voices were very annoying to me. I could have done without that writing style for sure. There was some drama that I found a bit unrealistic and excessive, though it did progress the story through the plot.
Characters and places from Ciz’s BTU series were worked in, which was great. However, I do think BTU’s amount of main characters and character associations is getting to be a bit large to handle as a reader so hopefully books moving forward aren’t to meshed between the two series.
Luckily for you, if you start this series now, all three books are out so you won’t be waiting on a cliff hanger like I was for the next to be released (even though they were released in pretty fast succession.) The series is available on Kindle Unlimited. Thanks for reading!
