RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - The Tip-Off (Smart Jocks #3) by Rebecca Jenshak

🔥🔥 The highly-anticipated third book in the Smart Jocks series is LIVE! 
Gabby and Zeke's story is finally here!!! One-click today! 🔥🔥

I’ve spent years hiding in the shadows.
He’s spent his whole life chasing the bright lights of the NBA.
We have nothing in common, except for the fact our friends ditched us for spring break.
I have a bucket list for my senior year at Valley U.
He’s the only person I know on campus.
I’m ready to start checking things off my list.
Frat party: Check.
TP the baseball house: Check. 
Goat yoga: Check. 
Skinny dipping: Check. 
Falling for Zeke Sweets, Valley U’s MVP: Not going to happen.

Hands down, this is my favorite book of the series! I was so glad to finally get Gabby's story, and I knew it would be one that would stay with me after I finished, and I was NOT disappointed! And I love that with her list and all of the support from her BFF Blair, Gabby was finally going to have her best college experience. I was even more excited when I realized who Blair asked to watch out for Gabby during spring break, because I've been waiting for his turn in the hot seat as well.

This was a beautiful slow-building romance, I love seeing their tentative interactions grow into friendship and blossom into love; and the fact that Zeke saw Gabby as so much more than her scars; they bring out the best in each other. Not every romance will bring out the high intensity super sexy smoldering interactions, but those are the ones you know will last because of the foundation upon which the relationship is built. And now I'm ready for Nathan's story!


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.
