Crosby Parks had the life most guys only dreamed of. A wealthy family, girls vying for his attention, and pro scouts after his hockey skills. But when the life he knows comes crumbling down, he’s sent to Alabama to escape the media storm and to rebuild his life. If Crosby has any shot of playing professional hockey, he must keep a low profile and graduate from college. But the second he steps foot on campus, keeping a low profile becomes impossible.
Sabrina’s mind is made up. After encouraging Alabama’s star wide receiver to friend-zone her and pursue someone else, she’s determined to focus on herself and stop being everyone’s trusty sidekick and shoulder to cry on. But when she stumbles upon a naked hockey player tied to a tree in the middle of the night, Sabrina’s life is thrown upside down. Because when you leave someone tied to a tree, they eventually get free.
I loved this book. For Crosby was such a fun, quick read. It started off hilariously and I was immediately addicted to reading it. I loved the love-hate vibe it had going on for most of the book.
Sabrina and Crosby bantered back and forth expertly. Each barb they exchanged was wickedly entertaining. Despite hating each other, they had intense chemistry. Once they were through with their hate and got to the love part of their relationship, the story got even better. I didn’t think it could, but it did! The way they stood up for each other was awesome. Their support of each other was just really cool.
Another cool thing about this book was seeing some returning characters from previous books in the series. It was fun to catch up with them through their friends. It was fun seeing Forester especially through Sabrina’s eyes.
So yeah. For Crosby was an excellent new adult sports romance. The more I read of J. Nathan’s books, the more I love her writing. I hope there will be more books to come in the For You series. A certain nerdy freshman friend of Crosby’s needs a book!
