Jolie Louis is a smart girl.

She knows that her best friend, Sage Poirier, is a bad idea.

He’s a walking, talking cliché. The Adonis quarterback with the bulging biceps and harem of fangirls trailing behind him on campus like a stench you can’t get rid of.

Sadly, it is also the very reason she can’t seem to stay away from him.

No, wait. That’s not fair. They’re also roommates, at least until May, when they graduate from college.

Jolie is already straddling the line between friendship and more when Sage comes to her with an offer she cannot refuse: be his fake girlfriend and live for free for the rest of the semester.

She tells herself that she can handle it.

He’s just the boy she saved ten years ago, right?

Wrong. So very wrong.

He is a man now, and she is his captive.

Heart, body, and soul…


If you read this novella in the Team Player: A Sports Romance Anthology back in December 2017, then it is pretty much the same story, but let me just say that that extended epilogue is AMAZING and I fell in love with these characters even more!

The End Zone by LJ Shen is a hot and sexy friends to lovers romance with just a splash of fake relationship tossed in for good measure. This novella features two childhood best friends who couldn’t be more perfect for one another. Seriously these two have that undeniable chemistry that leaps right off the pages!

Jolie is the sweet gal who has admired her best friend from afar since she climbed out of her bedroom window that fateful night and Sage is the kind of man that puts the ‘ho’ in manwhore. If you’re on the search for a sexy romantic comedy with a little bit of sass that’ll leave you laughing and swooning all at the same time then this is the book for you!
