I’ve been in love with her for two years.

The first time around, I screwed things up. I hesitated and the moment was gone.

I passed when I shouldn’t have.

Not a total loss. I gained a best friend instead of whatever we might have been.

Sydney is hands down the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and I’ll do anything to keep her in my life. Even bury my feelings deep inside.

But one hot summer together at the lake filled with lots of teeny-tiny bikinis and I’m ready to risk it all for a second chance.

It’s time to take my shot.

the pass

Rebecca Jenshak is a brilliant storyteller and has recently become one of my favorite author's after devouring all of her books in the Smart Jocks series. The Valley U universe is one of my favorite book worlds to get lost in and I am absolutely addictive to all aspects of this world. With each new book I found myself falling more and more in love with her characters and their storylines that she so beautifully crafted.

The Pass is the newest installment in the Smart Jock series and tells the story of Tanner and Sydney, characters that we met in previous books. When I learned that Tanner Shaw was getting his own story (yes this girl feel head over heels for this character), I was so freaking excited and luckily I didn't have to wait too long to get my hands on his story since I waited so long to read these books. Perhaps the dumbest...or maybe actually the smartest decision of my life since I was able to jump from one book to the next and only had to wait a few weeks instead of months.

Anyways back to Tanner and Sydney. These two were meant to be from their first encounter but a misunderstanding led them to becoming best friends, but you know what they say, patience makes the heart grow fonder. Their friendship created a special bond between them and helped to form a deeper connection between the two of them. Their chemistry was on point and had my heart swooning the entire time. These two gave me all the feels in this sweet, sexy and hilarious romance that captivated my heart and left me completely satisfied from start to finish.
