The Blurb:

Wingman rule number one: don’t fall for a client.

After a career-ending accident, former NFL recruit Ian Hunter is back on campus—and he’s ready to get his new game on. As one of the masterminds behind Wingmen, Inc., a successful and secretive word-of-mouth dating service, he’s putting his extensive skills with women to work for the lovelorn. But when Blake Olson requests the services of Wingmen, Inc., Ian may have landed his most hopeless client yet.

From her frumpy athletic gear to her unfortunate choice of footwear, Blake is going to need a miracle if she wants to land her crush. At least with a professional matchmaker by her side she has a fighting chance. Ian knows that his advice and a makeover can turn Blake into another successful match. But as Blake begins the transformation from hot mess to smokin’ hot, Ian realizes he’s in danger of breaking his cardinal rule…


My Review:

A witty take on the pygmalion-type romance, this was a sweet and fresh campus read.

Ian Hunter, former NFL player on and off the field, return to college after a career-ending injury and sets up Wingmen Inc, a word-of-mouth ‘redevelopment’ service for women who are crushing after men they believe are out of their league. But when he takes on Blake, with her terrible dress sense and feisty attitude, he gets blindsided by the unexpected attraction he feels for his client… who is, of course, after another man.

The dialogue, with its wit and innuendos, was what really made this book, with its two very strong (and very strong-willed) protagonists. The pace was fast yet the romance developed at a believable speed, and the drama was all very realistic. Overall, a very enjoyable read.
