About this ebook

I’ve been in love with her for two years.

The first time around, I screwed things up. I hesitated and the moment was gone.

I passed when I shouldn’t have.

Not a total loss. I gained a best friend instead of whatever we might have been.

Sydney is hands down the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and I’ll do anything to keep her in my life. Even bury my feelings deep inside.

But one hot summer together at the lake filled with lots of teeny-tiny bikinis and I’m ready to risk it all for a second chance.

It’s time to take my shot.

If you love friends to lovers, The Pass should certainly be on your radar and I’m sure like me you will love Tanner and Sydney’s story. This is book five in the Smart Jocks series but it can certainly be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone, I know this because I haven’t read all the previous books and I still enjoyed getting to know this couple who have an instant attraction to each other but decide friendship is all they can offer to start with. Tanner will do anything to keep Sydney in his life so if friendship is all she can give then he will take what ever he can get but what happens when they spend a summer together at the lake.... Will lines be crossed and will the friendship survive..... This is one of those books that has you feeling good and it will leave you smiling like a Cheshire Cat, it’s fun and entertaining and it’s a lighthearted romance that will appeal to a wide range of audiences. Looking forward to the next instalment of the Smart Jocks.

This fifth book in the Smart Jocks series is a beautiful friends to lovers romance! Shaw and Sydney met as sophmores at Valley and had a connection right from the start. But when they miss their moment, they continue to hang out and grow as friends. Over the next two years, they have had fun and been there for each other over all their ups and downs. It was hard for their friends to believe they were just friends when they were both so intune with each other. Now it is the last summer before senior year and they are at Shaw's family lake house enjoying their vacation. Shaw realizes that he has wasted two years not claiming the best person to ever come into his life. He wants to make it up to her and recreate the first dates they never had. They are so perfect for each other, having fun, challenging each other, supporting one another unconditionally, and their chemistry is explosive. Their close friends and family questioned them not being together, now question whether they should be together, causing them to question their decisions as well. It would destroy them both if they didn't work out and lost the one person that means the world to them. I really fell for both Shaw and Sydney, they were so perfect together. I cared for them both, and cheered for their HEA. I also loved the banter and comradery between all their friends. This story has a good pace, and a few twists added some tension and excitement towards the end. I really enjoyed this fun, engaging, emotional, and steamy romance!

Book 5 in the Smart Jocks series. Loved this second chance/friends to lovers romance. Tanner and Sydney were so good as couple once they unfriend zoned themselves. The chemistry and attraction between was so intense. You will be smiling and fanning yourself when you are finished. Loved this quick read. Can’t wait for more from this author. She is a must-read author. You won’t be disappointed!!
