Kip Carmichael is no pretty boy.
He’s a rough. Dirty. Giant. Hair so unruly, and a beard so thick, his friends on the team call him Sasquatch.
The first time Sasquatch lays eyes on Theodora “Teddy” Johnson across the keg at a party one night on Jock Row, she’d been relegated to the sidelines by her jock hungry “friends.”
Week-after-week, he watches beautiful but bashful Teddy getting overshadowed, and overlooked. Sasquatch finally broad shoulders his way through the crowd, offering to to be her hairy godmother. But the minute their eyes meet? He’s a goner.
Teaching her the RULES for winning a jock will be the easy part. Not falling in love with her is going to be a losing game.

I’m a sports romance junkie, and Sara Ney more than curbs my addiction. I adore her unconventional characters, their less than stellar first interactions, their witty exchanges, the pace of their relationship that starts as somewhat friends to a connection that seems unwavering despite their differences.
Kip Carmichael is definitely not a quintessential college athlete and it’s his uniqueness that piqued my interest from the start of Jock Rule. With a nickname like ‘Sasquatch,’ two years of facial hair growth, his celibate lifestyle, his ‘freakishly observant’ demeanor, and the fact that he’s brutally honest with everyone in what appears to be a judgmental and impolite way makes him both frustrating and endearing, and I’m so glad that Ney provides readers with Kip’s perspective throughout the story because I’m not sure I would have completely understood the reasons behind his words and his actions if that insight wasn’t provided from the man himself.
Theodora “Teddy” Johnson could definitely use a fairly godmother, but I’m not sure if a hairy one is the right choice;) Don’t get me wrong, Kip is more than able to teach Teddy how to get a backbone and become a badass that is no longer used by her crappy best friend, but I think both Teddy and Kip get more than they bargained for when he takes her under his wing, in awkward, frustrating, and sizzling ways.
The journey that these two characters take is full of sass, banter, hilarity and sexual tension, and while these two constantly say, especially at the beginning, that they’re only friends, it’s clear there’s something more developing between them, but I’m so glad that Ney doesn’t rush Kip and Teddy to figure out how they truly feel because the slow burn of their storyline fits well with who they are and what they want to achieve.
Kip’s relationship with his sister and their text exchanges definitely show a different side of him, and I adore that Ronnie calls him on his shit and realizes things about him and his feelings for Teddy before he does so himself!
Jock Rule is an entertaining, humorous, heartfelt, and smexy read. Watching Kip and Teddy circle around each other as they workout what they truly want from each other was beyond comical and readers definitely won’t get a better ‘hairy godmother’ turned potential boyfriend than what Sara Ney gives her readers in Kip ‘Sasquatch’ Carmichael!
