Book Review: The Slam by Haleigh Lovell

March 29, 2016

From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Haleigh Lovell, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

His best strokes can be found off the court.

Ender Hemsworth has been called many things:
A Cock on Legs.
Captain of Sigma Chi.
Big man on campus.
Star athlete at UC Berkeley.
And he's always scowling like someone just took a piss in his Cheerios.

Adelaide Vikander has been called one thing: 
Twenty Types of Trouble.
And she likes to take the proverbial ‘piss’ in Ender’s Cheerios.

When they’re forced to live together off campus, sparks fly and panties drop.
Will Ender, the cold and unfeeling ‘Cock on Legs’ grow a torso, a head, and a warm, beating heart?

THE SLAM is a sexy and flirty New Adult Sports Romance guaranteed to make you laugh, make you wet, and warm your heart.

4.0 "bosom buddies" STARS!!!
“Adelaide,” I’d said through gritted teeth. “I can already tell you’re twenty types of trouble.”

“Ender,” she’d replied sweetly. “I can already tell we’re gonna be bosom buddies.”

Hunter is my first Haleigh Lovell book and to be real honest I enjoyed reading this.The blurb was what caught me first and as I started reading it, I was screwed! I cannot put it down!!I was pulled to an entertaining story that made me eager to know what will happen next but at the same time not wanting it to end. 

The flow of the story was pretty much summed up in the blurb but it was more than that which you need to experience. Personally, I was entertained with the story of Adelaide Vikander a “Tomboy with buckteeth and acne… teeth so crooked they looked like they were throwin’ up gang signs and the famous Ender Hemsworth...cock on legs..president of Sigma Chi but... a dick who avoids affection like it’s the plague—or worse, a computer virus. 

But, how would you react, if the tomboy you once knew with a buckteeth and a haircut like a mushroom cloud is now a babe... yeah ADELAIDE IS NOW A BABE..but A STRANGE BABE... 

Since you don’t wear panties, yeah… I saw everything. And to be honest, I fully expected a full bush, not a bald eagle.”
Quit acting like you’ve never seen a dick before.”“I haven’t,”she said, biting her lips. “Your penis…”Wonder filled her voice. “It’s such a perfect little arrangement of atoms.”
 This book is really damn funny, I was in awe of the author's imagination because she just made her characters adorable to a point where you wanted to just simply lock them up for personal selfish reasons. ;)

Ender...*sigh...he's a hottie and their banters and witty conversations were just hilarious you will definitely laugh out loud. Adelaide's personality here was what really made me love more with this book. She's a strong heroine...witty...athletic!Man..she's just effing brilliant I want to hug her so damn tight. And the hot scenes???effing smoking...sizzling hot...*fanning...

And When you get to read their story?Wow!!You'll be invested because more than the loling moments you'll definitely learn a lot from this book. This is not just simply a lighthearted loling story but more of an eye opener to everyone. Really the author did well! It really is heart warming I think I fall in love with both the leads. Their friendship to lovers journey is just amazing. 

Kudos to you Haleigh Lovell!!! It's a SLAM
