    4 stars This was a pleasant surprise. I liked both main characters and I loved that there was no instalust. Their coming together seemed natural and they were a cute couple. I loved the easy way Blair fit into Wes' group of friends, but at the same time she had cool and nice girlfri...

    3 Stars The beginning was great, after that the story unfortunately dragged and was too cliche. I really liked the idea of a smart jock who tutors the girl (and not the other way round, as we're used to). Unfortunately, the second half of the book is a typical NA story and ther...

    This is my first read by this author and I can say I am officially a stalker, I could not get enough of this book. The characters are people you root for, they are all down to earth , you could hang out with them and become friends. I love a nerd and jock read , they are some of my fav...

    Blair is sometimes awkward as heck, ?you smell good,? she says on a breathy whisper so quiet I?m sure no one else can hear. The statement catches me off guard, but I manage to get out a weak thanks. ?I guess you aren?t used to your opponents noticing things like that.? Wes ...

    I've loved The Assist so much I didn't want to finish it and wait months for the second book in the Smart Jocks series to be released. Blair needs a tutor to help with her statistic class and she surprisingly finds it in Wes, the basketball jock. Wes and Blair are funny,smart,sexy...

    Rebecca Jenshak is a new writer to me. I had never heard of her before until I discovered this book. I have read many sport romance books but so far I remember, I have never read one about a guy who played basketball. But after reading this story I will certainly read more sport books ...

    I thought The Assist was really good the story line had me into what was going on with the characters It'd also be the first book that I've read by Rebecca Jenshak and I can't wait to see what's to come . The blurb really caught my attention and then the cover sold me just hot hot hot ...

    I had high hopes for this one but in the end, I was a bit underwhelmed with the story and had some issues with the writing that are probably personal but it messed with my enjoyment of the story. I'll probably try another book by this author though. We'll see. ...

    This book has such a sweet and fun feel to it. I was hooked and it was seriously hard to put down! I loved Blair and Wes so much! Wes was so cocky in the beginning but by the end after learning a hard lesson, he was sweet, charming and understanding. I loved the banter between the bask...

    It?s okay. There wasn?t really anything special about it. They weren?t memorable characters. Wes (the smart jock) tutors Blair. They fall in love. He can?t promise anything serious because basketball is his first love. He?s had a dry spell for 6 months since he?s been i...

    There was no real discussion about what Blair saw at the party after they'd broken up. (view spoiler)[He just says the girl sat on his lap, but she was touching him and he didn't stop her. Yes, it was just a hand on the chest, but still. And Wes knew it was a possibility Blair would sh...

    ?Dumb jock fell in love with the prissy sorority girl, go figure.? This but not at all this. The Assist is a pretty good new adult college sports romance. Wes and Blair and sweet from the start. I would say this is a bit of a slow burn, but it works and doesn?t drag at all. Th...

    OH. MY. DAYS!! When I found this on my kindle it had me feeling all sorts of ways. I am a HUGE fan of Rebecca Jenshak, and when I found out she was writing a college sports romance series, I knew it was going to be something pretty special. If, like me, you follow her on social media, ...

    The Assist, a college sports romance, is the first book I?ve read by Rebecca Jenshak. But trust me, it won?t be the last. I?m already itching for the next book in the series. I was hooked the moment I realized that the hot jock was the one tutoring the girl. It?s usually th...

    The beginning of this new series is really sexy! Just like the cover!( Opss...yeah maybe I already saw it and I promise you is ?). The assist "serve" a really sexy sport romance. Why is The Assist different from the other sport romances? Because of...HIM. Wes is the FULL package: s...

    So Stats student Blair noticed hot jock Wes sleeping through every lesson but still getting A?s on all his tests. It?s infuriating when she herself is failing. Deciding that he must have a tutor, she sets out to find out who is helping him so she can get the same help. This is ...

    The Assist is my first book by this author and I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, this NA adult romance is a bit predictable with jock meets nerd, but it was still an enjoyable read. I like how in this novel, the nerd was the one who needed the tutoring from the smart basketball player, ...

    3 Stars Overall Opinion: I'm a little bummed with this one if I'm completely honest. It's no secret that I love college athlete books, so of course I picked this one up! I just felt kind of meh about the whole thing. The time jumps bothered me a lot (see below pacing section), thei...
