I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review



College freshman Lucia Ramirez has a secret crush on Dane Monroe. He’s a tall drink of water — blond, brash, and one hell of a volleyball player. ¡Híjole! Lucia hopes her volleyball scholarship to his school will make him notice her.

Too bad what’s noticeable is Dane’s obvious hatred for Lucia. Her family’s politics contradict everything he stands for. And politics are front and center in both their families. Dane’s mother is about to face Lucia’s father in the race for US President.

When Secret Service throws them together, Dane can’t deny his frustrating attraction to Lucia’s athletic curves and sweet faith in the world. Amid the intense pressure of college athletics and presidential politics, can opposites not just attract, but overcome overwhelming odds to be together? Or do their differences block their match from the start?
 


OMG. I loved this book. Lucia and Dane are perfect together. I loved how they fought for each other. Their relationship with their families were a strong part of what they were, but they didn't let that keep them apart.
They´re the portrait of perfection with all that height, Lucia is   6´2´´ and Dane is 6´8´´.
Lucia and Dane are just starting adulthood and besides college, the volleyball team and friendship they have to deal with the pressure, their parents race for presidency puts on them.
In some moment they succumbed, as expected, but they overcome their issues and became stronger together.

And, for me, the fact that in the end we don´t know who won the election was perfect.
