Sunny Shelly’s Review: Campus Player by Jennifer Sucevic

Release Date: December 26
 
Trust me when I say that Rowan Michaels fever is 
 
alive and well at Western University. His fanbase is 
 
legendary. 
 
The guy is a major player.  Both on and off the field.
 
Girls fall all over themselves to be with him. They fill the 
 
stands at football practice, show up at parties he’s rumored to 
 
be at, and basically stalk him around campus.
 
It’s a little nauseating.
 
Don’t these girls have any self-respect when it comes to a hot 
 
guy?
 
Fine…I’ll admit it, he’s good looking. If you’re into that kind of 
 
thing. Which I’m not. I’ve got school and soccer to keep me 
 
busy which is exactly why I avoid him like an unfortunate clap 
 
diagnosis.
 
Too bad for me that Rowan is my father’s star quarterback. He’s practically part of 
 
the family, attending Wednesday night dinners with us. To make matters worse, 
 
we’re in the same major and get stuck together in classes every semester. It’s like 
 
the universe is trying to play a cosmic joke on me. The one guy I’d like to steer clear 
 
of is the very same one I can’t seem to get away from.
 
But what if Rowan isn’t the manwhore I pegged him to be?
 
What if one little secret has the capability to change everything between us?
 
*This is a mature New Adult novel with strong language and sexual situations 
 
intended for readers over the age of 18*

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Campus Player is the first book I’ve read by Jennifer Sucevic, and I really liked this slow-burn college athlete romance. At times, I really didn’t like Demi, but I loved Rowan right from the start. I found Demi to be extremely judgmental, and at times it was really hard to root for her to get the guy because Rowan was just SO sweet.

Demi has lived her life as the daughter of a popular college football coach, and since she now attends the same college where her dad coaches, she’s often been the subject of rumors that she’s fooling around with team members. While she has dated fellow athletes, she has a rule against dating one of her dad’s players… despite the fact that she clearly feels sparks whenever she’s around Rowan. And since he’s kind of unofficially part of her family with her dad being his mentor, she’s around him A LOT. But Demi judges EVERYONE. She wants nothing to do with Rowan because of the rumors that he’s a player.

And Rowan is just so damn sweet. I almost felt at times that he didn’t deserve her. He’s been in love with Demi for years, and has been keeping notes on all the little things that she likes. They have family dinner together once a week at her dad’s house, and while Rowan knows everything she’s shared over the last few years, I don’t think there’s a single personal fact about Rowan that Demi knows!

So when these two finally get together, I loved how open and honest he is with Demi. Again, she was quick to judge his situation and almost didn’t believe him when he confessed that he’d been waiting for her, making me wonder if she deserved him at all. Things are all fine and dandy between them for a while until Rowan’s bad-news dad pops up. I get why he makes the decision that he does in order to protect Demi and her father, but I hated that he made that choice at the same time. And Demi didn’t think to question what she walked in on? Did she not know him and how he feels about her by then?

Overall, Campus Player is an enjoyable college sports romance. Despite my feelings for the heroine, I did like Rowan a ton as a hero, and that’s what kept me reading!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
