A Jock Nerd Romance. Jake thought he had life all figured out. He had the perfect girlfriend, a starting position on the Varsity baseball team, and a raging social life. He was living the dream. That is, until he discovers that he’s in danger of losing his scholarship. The ultimatum? Get a tutor; or get out. Jake has no choice but to buckle down and put his head in his boo A Jock Nerd Romance. Jake thought he had life all figured out. He had the perfect girlfriend, a starting position on the Varsity baseball team, and a raging social life. He was living the dream. That is, until he discovers that he’s in danger of losing his scholarship. The ultimatum? Get a tutor; or get out. Jake has no choice but to buckle down and put his head in his books. No sweat, right? The only problem is that the only person available to tutor him is a quiet nerd who would rather be alone than spend any time with a headstrong jock who isn’t used to applying himself to anything but sports. For Kyle, college was only a formality. He didn’t need the degree, and he barely attended his classes and still passed with flying colors. Instead of sitting in class, he’d rather be chasing his true passion—designing and programming an original MMORPG game. Kyle doesn’t need a social life, and he definitely doesn’t need a boyfriend, especially because that would require stepping out of the closet, something he has no intention of doing any time soon. The only problem? He’s been assigned to tutor a handsome jock who would much rather be out on the field than stuck in a classroom. When it comes to having life figured out, Jake and Kyle will have to realize that there’s more to life than good grades and games. Neither one of them is ready for what their newfound camaraderie will mean; but the bases are loaded and it’s time to step up to the plate. Trading Teams is a standalone college romance featuring a nerdy gamer and a jock with his head in the clouds. This steamy romance includes intimate scenes of graphic sex and is intended for mature readers only. Batter up!

    Book: 2/5 Book cover: 3.5/5 The most baffling thing about this book is that it didn't end up a DNF book. The story could have been the most engaging on the planet (it wasn't) but it wouldn't matter because the writing style is so frustrating. This is an understatement.

The story could have been the most engaging on the planet (it wasn't) but it wouldn't matter because the writing style is so frustrating. This is an understatement. The writing style is one I don't like and books using it tend to go by the wayside. As a reader, it annoyed and exasperated me to such an extent that I almost quit reading numerous times. It works sometimes but more often than not it comes across as pretentious and even claustrophobic. The entire time I was reading, I was hyper aware of the present tense which felt unnatural. I never got used to it. But, I liked Jake and Kyle who were both sympathetic. Jock falls for nerd is a decent trope. I don't mind tropes at all. The main characters weren't uninteresting but the story was bloated, redundant and badly written. Some parts were so saccharine sweet. Additionally, the dialogue was sometimes unrealistic. I understand seeking advice from friends but who wants to keep reading dialogue from a character who comes across as a wannabe motivational speaker. Liddy giving Jake advice and waxing poetic was overkill. Also, there were too many rookie mistakes. Example below. "His fingers scramble at the button of Jake's jeans, and he gets the message. He scrambles off Jake's lap, and ......" I gave the book a chance and finished it, but ultimately the present tense writing did a disservice to the story. However, if you don't mind present tense writing, a saccharine sweet story, a jock meets nerd trope then you might like it.

    I quite enjoyed this one! I really enjoyed how Kyle was written - I felt his scowls deep down in my soul. He absolutely crept into my heart with his grief and fear of letting people in. Jake is an earnest sweetheart who wears his heart on his sleeve. They were pretty damn cute together. A fun, fluffy read!

Jake knows he needs someone to help him focus and study hard and he picks a cute little nerd Kyle to be his Tudor. There is a little bit of denial on both of there parts well more like refusing to see the spark. Jake figures it out first with his friend Liddy who I just LOVED... Like I said it is a sweet story and you should definitely read this book for your self. There are a couple gaps in the store, Kyle's brother has died before school even starts, but you dont get to find out how? Or why? They never talk about it. Just Kyle's guilt, and that he dose not like to drive so it leaves you to jump to conclusions that Kyle was the one driving when he died? The second hole is Jake's injury that was just like an after thought as an explanation to why he did no go pro? But you dont know what happened, how is was caused and when? I love the epilog it was a sweet little surprise. But the 2 main characters never really sat down and talked after there 1st date, nothing heavy. I really like the end and how they say there (I love you) Jake - I love you today, to which Kyle's response is I love you today, too. I think that is sweet. Well enough out of me. This is one of those books where you just really need to read it for your self to form an opinion, and I think you should. Although the writing was not my favorite style the store is a sweet one and you should give it a try. Happy reading......

    This was a pleasant surprise. I wasn't expecting to feel so much reading a trope that, usually, isn't that emotional, but I did. The story is pretty simple: Kyle is broken and Jake has the tools to fix him, so that's exactly what he does. The power isn't in the plot here, it's in the way it's delivered. The authors certainly know their business when it comes to evoking powerful reactions with words. I found myself gasping and even tearing up sometimes, and that's not something a run-of-the-mill a This was a pleasant surprise.

So why am I not giving this story a five star rating and throwing it right into my favourites shelf? Well, because, sadly, it lacks in editing. Not that it's filled with grammatical errors or anything. It's more about the typos here and there and, most annoying of all: the constant head hopping in the middle of a chapter and the authors' indecisiveness when it came to choosing a verbal tense and sticking to it. It got extremely confusing and the break in tense detracted from the narrative quite a bit. Aside from that, this is a beautiful story. For those like me that like angst and intensity, this is perfect. Once they maybe take the time to edit it properly with more of a critical eye, I think it could be a great book. :)

He is passing with flying colors and very little effort. He has no social life and spends his free time working on his original MMORPG game. He really does not want to tutor Jake but for some reason Jake will not take no. Kyle and Jake find themselves working together and surprisingly each learns something from the other. The most important was that there is more to life than gaming and baseball. As they get closer and closer, Jake finds himself wondering while Kyle does not want to lose his heart in way shape or form to a straight man playing at being gay. But is Jake really playing? This was a very enjoyable story about two men finding themselves a life outside of their usual activities. He has some amazing scenes of tenderness and some nice hot get togethers. Pick this one up and enjoy the story.

I spent the entire book wanting to grab ahold of both characters and squeeze them. Seriously, I kept imagining myself as an old Italian woman with a big chest just grabbing the characters and hugging the life out of them!! Sorry for that visual!! As I was saying, the book just gives you all the feels and it comes with an amazing epilogue. You won’t be sorry!! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    I was thoroughly disappointed. Nerd jock is one of my favorite tropes. And I was in the mood for something sweet and light-hearted with no unnecessary angst. Up until 50% into the book, I still felt that this was what I was looking for. But out of nowhere, Kyle became so moody and unstable. The book took a 180 degree turn into the sappy territory that I always desperately try to avoid. I could understand his grief but I could never get why he had to be so guilt-ridden.

Guess I still have to keep searching.

    DNF @ 30%. I just couldn't get into the writing style. I don't even know what to call this style exactly but it's distracting as hell. To make matters worse, it's sort of a college YA finding yourself story and up to this point, Jake is a total tool. I just can't get invested enough to finish this one. I hope they both work it out, somehow, I'm sure they do. Whether or not they are actually good for each other, I guess I'll have to live with not knowing.

    I enjoy the geek and jock dynamic. Jake was great. I really wanted to see more storyline progression -- Kyle's game? Jake's grades. I want to know what happened there. I wanted to actually see Kyle come out of his shell, maybe meet Jake's teammates. The end was just a jump. I feel like if the authors come back to this at some point, and just flesh out those relationships and plot points, this could easily be a five star book.

    Good story...there is alot of Kyles issues that interfere with his relationship with Jake. The part were he tells Jake that he can be bi ir whatever but if Kyle comes out he can never go back in because hes a nerd feels more stereotyped. I think that might have been true 15 years ago, but the world has moved on.

    I am not one for sports stories, but this one wasn't that all about that. This was truly a romance and an unexpected one at that. I loved Jake but was kinda ambivalent about Kyle. I understand his paranoia, but he was kinda cruel to Jake. I love the way it ended though. I volunteered to read an advanced reader copy and am under no obligation to leave this review.

    Julia

    I really enjoyed this. What I especially liked was that Kyle was the one nervous to be out and holding back, and not Jake. In many gay sports romances, it is more often than not the jock that is not ready to be out because he is nervous of what his teammates and others might think. Jake was so great. He was supportive and made sure Kyle was ready for things. Great story!
