Blog Tour and Giveaway: Pretty Smart Girls: Lace Up by Shae Ross



Team Ryan
Ryan Rose and her fellow Spartans are finalists in a high-profile entrepreneurial competition. They're competing for life-changing money and for their futures. They have a solid plan to win. All they need to do is trounce the competition: rich frat boys from an archrival university. Easy, right?

Team Jett
Jett Trebuchet's first mistake was not realizing that Ryan and her friends were the competition. His second was expressing his unabashed confidence in his team’s ability to win. After all, everyone knows the only thing MSU does better than U of M is produce beautiful, easy women…oh, and he almost forgot to say “dumb.” And boy, does his team pay for that one.

Game On
As each side tries to game the other, something else seems to be getting in the way—attraction. Now Ryan and Jett must keep their teams from getting distracted by the opposite sex...and each other. All is not fair in love and war when it comes to winning this game.


My 4-Star Review

I know this isn't what authors want to hear, but this is one of the cutest books I have read.  Sorry, I said cute.  I am not sure how else to describe it in one word!

This is one of those books where you aren't sure what exactly to expect.  All is fair in business and war.... Or is business, war?  

I breezed through this book.  With all of the underhanded slyness and budding relationships throughout the book, there is always something to keep your attention.  There wasn't a dull moment anywhere in this book.

Ryan and Jett's characters are likable.  Yes, both are likable.  By the end, you don't know who will win or who you want to win.  You will be praying that they both win, because they both deserve it!

This truly is a great book.  Lots of laughs.  A little heart break towards the end.  And lots of going-ons that you won't be able to put it down!  Thank you Shae Ross for putting out a wonderful and unique story!
