Our Review:
J's Revew:

“Not looking for love, 5 stars”

Gabby has a list of things she wants to do before fall semester starts. Things she feels normal college students have done but she has not yet. With her best friend and her friends next to her anything is possible. What she didn’t expect though was to be swept into Zeke’s orbit. Will she fall for the guy who laser focus on going pro?
Zeke overheard years ago that you cannot have a personal life and a professional life. All he’s ever wanted was to play in the NBA. He was so close to the finish line and having all his dreams come true when Gabby entered his life. She made his world go silent much like his headphones. What started out as a friendship turns into so much more. The question is can Zeke have both his dream and Gabby?
I floved these two. It wasn’t the classic pretty love story. These two were circling the drain towards each other without even realizing it. He made Gabby feel safe. She made Zeke come out of his shell and smile. Jenshak pulled me in with these two and had me sighing when I flipped to the last page. And now I will sit here twirling my thumbs waiting for the next book in the Smart Jock Series.

Jenn's Review:
What a sweet story! The Tip-Off was such a great story. I really loved the way the author wrote this book. The characters, the heat, the friendship, and the romance. Each aspect from just perfect.

I liked the plot of this book. Two very focused college students just looking to achieve their goals. Too bad life has other plans. What starts off as friendship has the ability to turn into more. Will they take the chance or are they too focused don themselves to see an us?

I really liked Gabby. I liked her drive and ambition. It was nice to see a character who has goals and is doing what they can to obtain them. Zeke is the same in that sense. He has his own goals he wants to obtain and a rule book to get him there. I liked watching these two together. They had a great journey.

The heat between these two was perfect. It was what I would want in a story like this. The building tension and chemistry was perfect.

The writing style of this book was good. The pace of the story is steady. The story is told from a dual point of view. I liked the other characters as well. It was done perfectly.

Overall, I am so beyond glad that I read this book. The author did not disappoint. I really enjoyed the story and characters.

I can’t make out her form until I’m halfway down to the water. She sits on the dock, feet dangling above the water. She’s so fucking beautiful and innocent and I want to ruin her and worship her all at the same time. I’m not going to do either of those things, though. I’m going to stick to the path. The path doesn’t include dating. The path doesn’t even include fun most days and Gabby deserves days that are all about fun.
She turns her head as I get closer and there’s that big Gabby smile pointed right at me. “Hey.”
“Hey, yourself. Whatcha doing down here all alone?”
“I thought we could cross skinny dipping off both our lists.”
My brows raise. “What about your tattoo?”
She shrugs. “It’s been a week. I’m willing to risk a quick dip if you are.”
I rub a hand over my chin. I’m not ashamed of my body, but I’d also prefer not to have my black ass photographed if one of my teammates happen to stumble upon us. Last year one of the sophomores got drunk at a party and passed out naked in the bathroom. I have no idea why he was naked in there, but the photos of his hairy ass were everywhere. My ass is baby smooth and awesome, but I still don’t want it on display.
“Well, come on before someone sees us.” She’s unbuttoning her shorts and pushing them down while I stand there gawking. The sight of her bare legs puts me in motion. Just not a part of me I want in motion right now. I turn around, give my dick a little pep talk that includes promises I won’t be a celibate asshole forever, and then undress to my boxers.
“You decent?” I ask over my shoulder.
“No. Oh my God, don’t look.” She laughs, I hear her footsteps on the dock and then a splash. A few seconds later, she calls, “Your turn.”
I push my boxers down and then hold my hands over my junk, semi-erect still because promises be damned, and take two large steps before jumping in beside her. Her happy squeals direct my entry into the lake as I clear the water from my eyes. We’re treading water buck naked not two feet from one another. It’s a little trippy. I haven’t spent time with a girl naked like this in… well forever. If I’m naked and this close to a girl, it’s for one purpose and though I’m a gentleman, of course, it’s not about anything but carnal desires being met. Thrusts and grunts and release. 
I don’t think it would be like that with Gabby. No, I know it wouldn’t be like that, which is another reason it can’t happen. 
“So now what?” she asks, suddenly looking a little nervous.
“Far as I know, this is all there is to it. How do you feel?”
“Naked.” She laughs. “But also like a rebel.”
She splashes water at me playfully and I do it right back. 
“Think anyone can see us?”
I shrug. “Maybe. Do you want them to see you?”
“God, no,” she says too fast. The excitement in her eyes is a dead giveaway. I think Gabby likes the thrill, the possibility of being caught, and God help me because I want nothing more than to keep her safe while she explores every sordid fantasy.
