I am never disappointed when I start to read one of L.A Cotton books and this one was a Can Not PUT It Down Book!!!! I was amazing and a real page-turner enemies-to-lovers romance story. This is the first book in the Rixon Raiders series which is going to have me waiting for more as I just loved all the characters in this book and look forward to reading and learning more about all these characters as well as new ones. Hailee is a very strong and determined young lady that is trying to make the best of what she has been given to make the best with her life. I love the friendship that Hailee and Felicity have, I loved to hate Jason the books Bad Boy. Cameron was the bad boy with a soft gooey middle that will melt your heart with the way he changes is way along the way due to the girl he should not want.
It was the start of Senior year so Hailee Raine only had one more year to put up with her step-brother and all the trouble that goes with this football-crazy town of Rixon.

Jason’s two best friends Cameron and Asher are all arrogant football-crazed pigs. Felicity is Hailee’s best friend since she moved to town 6 years ago. Felicity has a list of things they both must to in their final year of high school. A list that Hailee is not happy to complete but as a loyal friend she wants Felicity to have the experience all seniors want so she gives in to a lot of things she hates to do.
“So they like to get a rise out of you….You know, some people call that foreplay.”

She is off limits to the football team.
She is hated by the captain of the team and my best friend.
She is trouble for his friendship with Jason.

“Does hating me feel as good for you as it does for me?”
“It wasn't that I wanted her. I didn't. I just didn't like the idea of anyone else having her either.”
Can she trust Cameron to help? What will Jason do if he knew they were spending time together?
“But as she walked away from me, I knew I was screwed. Because the rules had changed and I knew I couldn't stay away from her. Even if I wanted to.”
