This was hands down a BEST BOOK OF 2016 for me! It was a total 5 star read that I will recommend to anyone who loves a great "friends to lovers", "older brother's best friend" or "sports" romance. - J. Hodges
I loved how the author incorporated hockey and music together.. how she gave us a play by play of the games or the music process and how impeccable she was with both subjects.. and that ending I was just seriously blown away! - Logan Hr
This is a book that is so good you have to keep going, and you will find yourself completely consumed with Brantley. OH he’s so dreamy and swoon worthy. B stole my heart and I am asking him to never return it. ~ Nikki for Saints and Sinners Book Blog
I’m a huge fan of Rhonda James, that’s no secret at all. She gives everything into each of her books and you can feel it come out of her characters and stories. I love each and everyone of her books, but I will say that this book is my absolute favorite of hers to date!! - Alpha Book Club
Rhonda James has just created the perfect forbidden romance with Jersey Girl, book one in what appears to be a very promising series called Sticks & Hearts.

The “Bro”Code is something Brantley is determined to live by even if his best friend's younger sister Cassie is the perfect girl. Settling for just friends, these two fight temptation every step of the way until there connection is too much. Only problem is how do they tell her brother?
Ohhh the angst, tension and sexual frustration in this book! From the moment I opened its pages I was sucked into this world James created salivating for every word, chapter, and promise this author had written. I was completely wrapped up in watching this friendship blossom into something more. I felt their frustration, their desire, and even their guilt as I read along. Having never read book by James, I am completely floored by this one and was immediately adding all the rest to my TBR. She has an unbelievably great way of storytelling giving you just the right mixture of everything you need for a great romance. Jersey Girl is one of those books that you absolutely must pick up and read! Promise you it won’t be your last Rhonda James book!
