Penalty was another highly enjoyable book by author Jacob Chance. I found this book a bit different than his previous titles in that the suspense-thriller aspect did not exist. That said, Penalty had some angst, a lot of romance and even some humor and witty dialogue. Brady Lincoln was the popular, arrogant, cocky quarterback on BU's football team. Yes he was everything stereotypical you might find in a hero of the sports romance genre. But he was so much more. I found that Brady had deep feelings and a huge heart. Sure he was a 'player' with the ladies and had no complaints regarding his lifestyle. But unfortunately later, he would have regrets because unexpectedly he found someone he wanted to be good for, to give his heart to. Because of his well-earned reputation, Brady will have to work very hard to get his girl. Though he didn't mind the effort he would have to put fourth. It would be worth it. Because 'she' was worth it. Harlow was quiet, shy and devoted to her studies. She was not a party girl. When she meets Brady, she is enthralled by his celebrity status, gorgeous looks and confident attitude, even if he unnerved her. What Harlow didn't like was Brady's reputation. As a result, she didn't trust him at first. But Brady wasn't giving up. He was the perfect gentlemen with anything and everything to do with Harlow. Brady totally won me over. Watching their relationship develop from strangers to acquaintances to friends to romance was sweet and endearing. Brady impressed me over and over with his charm and wit. He was also a sexy, dirty talker. ;) Penalty is not a suspense novel as I mentioned earlier. The heat aspect is downright sexy and erotic. The chemistry between Brady and Harlow was strong and I easily felt it through the writing. That said, I appreciated they took their time with intimacy however the sexual tension was thick in the atmosphere around them. This book is also written in both POVs. I loved being inside Brady's head as much as in Harlow's. There is a snag in their relationship that needs repairing before they find their HEA. Remember what I said earlier about Brady and regrets? I'll just let you ponder that....... Another aspect of this book I enjoyed was the scene descriptions. I felt like I was in Boston. I walked the streets along with the characters, I attended the football games and I even felt like I was at the afterparties. The secondary characters were a great addition to the story as well. Some were likable and funny and there were a few that were not. In fact there is one character in particular that I wished had different ending, where they got what they deserved. The epilogue was sweet. Brady was such a sexy, alpha who also had a sweet romantic side. If you are wondering whether you want to read this book or not, I recommend it highly. You should add it to your TBRs. Keep your eyes out for Penalty which is releasing May 12! *I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. My opinions are honest and unbiased.*

    I'm a firm believer that Jacob can write any genre. Penalty is my favorite so far. Brady is your college bad boy, football star , getting ladies is not a problem but when one catches his eye that doesn't play his game easy, he knows he must have her. Harlow is your girl next door, who loves football but just the game not the players, especially one in particular. ..... Brady. She's heard of his record but when she sees he's not giving up and he shows her his true side, staying away is hard, but I'm a firm believer that Jacob can write any genre.

    Kitten To The Rescue I am a sports romance enthusiast! So when I saw Jacob Chance start talking about his upcoming book I was all for it, having read all of his previous work I know he has a talent for writing- with that being said, I have to admit I did wonder a bit if this book would run along the same lines as many other football based romances have in the past.

I am happy to say that I was wrong to even consider it! While this storyline does involve a cocky playboy quarterback and the shy beautiful girl that's about the end of the similarities to other stories ( at least ones that I have read ) The rest is made up of humorous dialogue, flirtatious banter, some dirty talk that could school my hubby, excellent sports descriptive scenes ( I have read many 'sports romances' that have none ) copious amounts of hotness, plot twists to keep you even more engaged along with that sweet emotionally charged romance that we get to watch grow through the pages! Jacob Chances unique style of writing shows on the pages of every book he writes, no matter what genre. This book is just more proof of that unique gift! I look forward to reading his next book soon!

    Jacob is a truly talented author. He can write so many different types of stories. In his sports romance though, he wrote with a passion for the sport of football. It's told in a dual POV and the main characters couldn't be more different. Brady is quarterback for a college football and the all around playboy. He knows he is hot, that the girls will do anything for him. Brady has the chance to go pro, if he plays his cards right. He doesn't do relationships and has never had an actual girlfriend.

Harlow is college student, studying to get her psychology degree. She pours everything into her schoolwork and just recently her roommate has made her start to go out and experience life too. Brady and Harlow first meet when she runs into him at a party and spills her drink all over him. Brady is enthralled with her because she is the first woman who didn't openly hand herself over to him. Harlow has watched Brady from a far, but never thought he would fall for her. Brady eventually whittles her down and she agrees to go on a date with him. They are completely opposite, yet it works so well for them. Things are going really well for them, until the completely unthinkable is thrown at Harlow. Can Brady's playboy days be done? Is Harlow the one to tame him? What will happen when Harlow's world is rocked? I love the banter and the chemistry of these characters. Brady and Harlow really did "shine" in this book. If you are looking for a sports romance, then look no more! I recommend reading it!

    Penalty is a sports romance, college love story by Jacob Chance that will leave you swooning. It has the perfect amount of drama and what I like to say the perfect amount of "Chance Brothers" sexual passion that is expected from this author.

Brady Lincoln is the ultimate University football team quarterback bad boy, he can and probably has had most of the girls on campus. I wasn't a fan of his from the beginning because Jacob Chance literally grabs the reader from the start with his sexual arrogance. I realized all it takes is one lady that is immune to his charms that had me seeing Brady in a different light. How far will he go to get the attention of one young lady that is not like all the other girls falling at his feet? Harlow is a great character and easy to fall in love with, she is shy, funny, strong and determined to guard her heart. She doesn't even realize that she has the power to change this gorgeous bad boy and make him a better man, that's until she opens up her heart. Falling for Brady Lincoln is more than she ever expected, but will she be able to handle a mistake from his past? I enjoyed every minute reading Penalty, it's well written. Jacob Chance still amazes me with just how much he can fit into a short story and leaves the reader satisfied with just the right amount of drama, romance and sexual references. I am left one happy reader and I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fast and sexy read. 5 Stars!

    Touchdown for Jacob Chance!!! Penalty is a wonderful book, different from anything that the author has written before yet he pulls it off flawlessly. The book is very well written in Jacob Chance's style that his readers have come to expect.

The characters are very well written and quite defined with Brady, a Football Quaterback (wonder where he came up with this name for his lead male ??? ), who can get any girl he wants with just a smile. Until Harlow who wants nothing to do with the "Player" that is Brady! But there is something there, something that is pulling them towards each other. The "Player" and the "Girl Next Door" is what you have in these characters and find yourself on the sidelines cheering for them to win the "game of love". I highly recommend this book! I absolutely adored this story!

He has proven he could write the phone book and I'll happily read it. Penalty was different but no less better. I loved the witty banter between Harlow and Brady. I loved how Brady, although he was the run-of-the mill jock, he had a sweet side that had me swooning right along with Harlow. I don't think I would have been able to hold out as long as Harlow did. The twists that pop up really got me and took me by surprise and kept me swiping. Just thinking back on it, I still feel that pang right in the middle of my chest and it's been a week since I read this. Jacob Chance slowly worked his way up on my faves list but with this book and the versatility he has shown, he's jumped up several spots. I'm definitely going to be doing some Crazy Ass Stalking!

I absolutely love his writing style, his heroes, and his stories. This is the kind of book that you pick up, and before you know it, you’ve read the entire thing. That’s exactly what happened to me. I flew through the book smiling and swooning the entire time. Brady is his university’s star quarterback. He's hot, cocky, and used to getting any woman he wants. Women throwing themselves at him is so common place that when a girl that runs into him at a party doesn’t immediately recognize him and fall for his flirty smile and smooth talk, he is shocked. That indifference coupled with her beauty and sassy personality has him more than intrigued. The mystery woman is a fellow college student named Harlow, and she knows very well who Brady is. His reputation as a player on and off the field proceeds him, and though she wants nothing more than to give into his advances, she wants to protect her heart even more. From the first time Harlow saw Brady, she was incredibly attracted to him. It was easy to steer clear of him when he didn’t know she existed, but now that she is on his radar, she finds it hard to resist his many charms. Brady has never wanted a woman for more than one night, but with Harlow everything is different. Spending time with her and proving to her that she is special to him becomes his primary focus. He wants nothing more than for her to be his girl, but when he finally gets his wish, his previous promiscuous ways come back to bite him in the ass. He needs Harlow to see him as the man he is now because of her, but will she be able to when his past slaps her in the face? Penalty is a well-paced, sweet, sports romance that you will find yourself getting lost in immediately. Brady and Harlow’s chemistry is off the charts, and you can feel their connection from the very beginning. I fell for Brady just as hard and fast as Harlow. It was hard to believe he was ever the type of guy that used women for sex and threw them away. His character made the story for me. The man is gorgeous, charming, respectful, thoughtful, funny, playful, loving, and just down right perfect in every way. The fact that he is a dirty talker catapulted him to book boyfriend status for me. I’ll take a Brady. Hell, I’ll take two! If you are on the fence about this one, hop on over! It’s the perfect feel good romance to help you destress after a long day. If you like sports romance or contemporary romance in general, I recommend this one to you!

    'Penalty' is the first book in the 'Bostan Terriers' series by Jacob Chance. Brady was the popular jock and ladies man. He played for the BU football team. He never thought of finding himself 'the girl' until he met Harlow. Harlow was like the 'girl next door'. She was sweet and shy yet beautiful. These two took me on an unforgettable journey that had me on the edge until the very end. It was a slow-burn romance and it was very cute to watch their relationship progress beautifully.

    3 Stars This was a nice reading. A short, quick paced story about a cocky quarterback and a shy girl. The story wasn't something special or out of this world but I liked it. The book was good enough and I liked Brady and Harlow! They were cute together. And they had some hot kisses and sex scenes! The things that bothered me was that I didn't connected with them 100% but it was ok, and Harlow drove me a little crazy with her insecurities but she got over them really quickly so no harm there.

I don’t need to know every outfit the heroine is wearing for every occasion unless it helps to tell the story). The way JC describes a drink that Brady was making made me completely want the drink with its cool ice and amber liquid AND I don’t even like that kind of drink BUT I could completely see, smell & taste it in my mind. I will admit that when I read the prologue I thought “What have I got myself into?” because right off I was thinking I was going to hate Brady but my opinion changed rather rapidly and I was wishing I was back in college in hopes to get his attention. 

She had the normal insecurity we all have at that age but she knew her worth and wasn't going to be a notch on Brady's bed head. The inevitable drama I did see coming from the start but it was a good twist on the usual college romance drama so I did appreciate it. I am a little vengeful so I could have done with seeing a few people get there own back but maybe they will later in the series. Guess I will have to read on and see. I would have loved to see a little more into the future but nothing was missing not having it I am just wanting more.

    This was a 4.5* read for me. Jacob Chance's Penalty is a sports romance set in college, this is completely different to what we are used to from this author, I love that Jacob has branched out and taken a chance at writing a different genre, he pulled it off and has proved that he's a versatile writer. It's a sweet romance with a touch of humor but it still has that Jacob Chance edge to it. Brady and Harlow, you can't get any more opposite than these two.

Brady is everything that Harlow isn't, he's outgoing, always at parties and he's a massive player. Harlow however is nerd, she's a hermit who thinks a good night is staying in studying, she needs someone in her life like Brady to bring her out of her shell and he needs someone like Harlow to tame him. Can she be the one to tame BU's golden boy and bring him to his knees? Jacob certainly hasn't disappointed with this standalone. I can't wait to read what he brings us next

    I didn't like this book. I think it's conveniently smooth sailing from beginning to end. There's a little conflict in the end that I feel like it's brushed off like it's nothing and that's about it. For a fuckboy, the Hero fell for the heroine almost immediately. It screams fairytale for me. The heroine was reluctant but she succumbed to his charms very fast as well so there's no thrill in it for me. Their relationship seems forced. -Spoiler Alert- In the end we found out that the Hero slept with t I didn't like this book. I think it's conveniently smooth sailing from beginning to end.

The heroine was justifiably mad but it only took her eighteen days to forgive him and then they slept together. Immediately. So I'm just. Speechless tbh. There's no point to this book really. It's bland as fuck and the conflict could have been dealt with better.

    Short, fast read with a cocky college quarterback and a smart, quiet and beautiful girl. One of the better sports romances I've read lately. A nice mix of both sport, angst and romance. It's on the steamy side, but not overpoweringly so. And a cast with great variety for a well-rounded read. My first book by this author, and I was impressed.

    My first book by this author, it was really pleasant. Not a lot of drama, sweet and sexy college sports romance. Brady is the popular quaterback with a legacy. He has no shortage of women and wants no commitments. Until meeting Harlow at a party throws him for a loop. Harlow is a smart and hard working girl who's sole focus is succeeding in her career. If only Brady was not pursuing her so bad. There is little drama and their whole love story is cute and sweet. Highly recommend it when ur in a b My first book by this author, it was really pleasant.

    Brady Lincoln is the epitome of the perfect jock. Quarterback and star of his college football team, cocky player in and outside the bedroom, he's got it all -or at least that's what he thinks. There comes Harlow, the cute awkward hardworking student, who's lost the only person she loved in a car crash. Unlike other women, it will take more that Brady's panty dropping smile to let her succumb to his charms. For his first sport romance, Jacob did a very good job! Indeed, I really enjoyed Penalty.

Sure there were hot moments but the book was also so sweet!! Brady and Harlow were so cute together. Who would have thought that a jock like Brady had such a heart of gold?
