Overall Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐

Hawk Florence has always been the football star, the guy that can make any girl fall in love with him- and then break their heart. And that’s exactly what he did to me way back in high school. Now I’ve been assigned to do a puff piece on him for a national sports journal, and I’m more than ready to get my revenge.

The plan is simple. First, sit him down and flatter the shit out of him. Laugh at his crappy jokes. Touch his arm, let it linger. When he asks me out, I’ll flutter my eyelashes and shyly accept. Then, make him fall in love. And devour him. I’m ready. I won’t fail. But there's one thing that I didn’t plan for: he doesn’t ask me out. Instead, he calls me out on my BS. He’s not wrong, but that’s just one of the ways that my plan has already gone terribly wrong before it even begins. When he does finally ask me out, it isn’t much of a date. Instead, it’s a few agonizing hours of going back and forth about why we hate each other. But there is one interesting thing that came out of our brief time together: the bet that Hawk makes with me- that he will make me fall in love in 3 weeks, in love for real. If he fails, he’ll give me every exclusive for the season. Of course, I accept. Why wouldn’t I? This will help my career, and it’s not like he has a prayer anyway. This jerk broke my heart in high school, and there’s no way that I will fall for the same trick twice. Or will I? All bets are off when it comes to the heart. Fumbled is a standalone sports romcom that will make you wonder what to do when love- and football- gives you a second chance....


It was a really cute read but I wanted more! I wouldn’t call it lacking in any way, but I feel like there could’ve been more to the story.

Becca and Hawk knew each other in high school, and he broke her heart. Now, Becca is a journalist and has to do an article on Hawk for the news outlet she works for. When she walks in for the interview, Hawk immediately recognizes her even if she is playing like she has no idea who is beyond the football player he is now. After realizing she’s upset with him he decides to make a bet that she will fall in love with him in 3 weeks. Only, not only does she - but he falls in love with her too.

I am not sure how two authors to one book really work from their point of view, but I applaud them. The story was easy to follow, well written. and there were no plot holes. I enjoyed the banter between Becca and basically everyone. Becca was a really well-thought-out character, well they all were... But I really enjoyed reading Becca's story.

The sexy time scenes were done very tastefully. I wouldn’t call it smut at all. Lizzi Stone let us know exactly what was going on without giving us detail by detail. I actually enjoyed it, because sometimes it is just too much, and in this book, it wasn’t too much at all.

My favorite character in this book is Penny. From her first scene in this book to her last scene in this book, she is just the cutest little thing. You'll see
