    Yes, it's another tutor themed college athlete romance. But the tutor shoe is on the other foot this go round. Wes and Blair make for some good times. I loved their banter and underlying angst that was going on for both of them. The friendships are outstanding and I really enjoyed how ...

    To be honest I had reservation about this book. I never heard about this author before. And from the blurp I think this book is for New Adult audience. But whats really makes me curios is the Hero, Wes is the smart one. Usually the heroine is the smart and sensible one. And that is ref...

    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...

    ?You?re like the best of both worlds ? hot jock meets hot nerd.? ?All I just heard was you calling me hot.? If first impressions are anything to go by, Rebecca Jenshak?s introduction to everyone at Valley U was a winner! We were left hungry for more and had to j...

    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...

    3.5 STARS On the court, I saw everything. But off the court? I never saw her coming. Sooo...would you judge me if I told you that the cover had a lot to do with me trying this book by a new to me author? Of course you wouldn't! Because you're probably drooling over it yourself ri...

    4 Stars He slides his glasses on and then flips open the book, and I swear it?s like someone turns on a wind machine. The black rimmed glasses take him from hot jock to hot smart jock, and I know this must be what it?s like for guys watching a supermodel eat a double cheeseburg...

    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 ...

    4 - "God bless smart jocks?" Stars! What an introduction to this author?s writing. I don?t often read college age romance anymore, mainly because I struggle with the overly dramatic/angsty story-lines, or I just find it impossible to relate to the characters. "No risk, no ...

    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...

    Audiobook review. I really enjoyed listening to this book. Wes has the best of both worlds, the body and discipline of a jock and the intellect of a nerd. Blair messes up a few times in her quest to retain his help but eventually they find their way. The plot deals with a topic tha...

    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. ...

    The Assist by Rebecca Jenshak ?Nerd meets Jock with a twist, 5 stars? Okay, so I had to go and look to see if I had ever read Jenshak before and I hadn?t, which blew my mind. I loved The Assist and couldn?t believe my luck that I somehow stumbled upon her when this book bec...

    Rebecca Jenshak was an author that I fell in love with her work super quick. And this book was no exception. I'm a huge sports romance fan but never read about basketball so this was a refreshing change. Was Wes and Blair were a brilliant couple. She needed help with her cour...

    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, ...

    C U T E N E S S O V E R L O A D A quick, fun and witty read. 3.5 stars. Started out super fun and I was sure it would at least be a 4 Star read, but it was a pretty mellow book. Plot wise there was nothing new, or shocking. That?s me though, I like my drama. ...

    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...

    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...
