    I really enjoyed this book. It was a slow burn love, full of sweetness despite being about an NFL football player. Colt was incredibly sweet to Lilly. It's not a steamy read, this was more about building a lasting relationship. I of course started with book 2, not realizing it but it's a standalone so nothing ruined. This is a pretty low angst book.

    NO- NO-NO to that cover! It definitely didn’t work. Colt Avery deserves so much better. At least lose the fake cheesy face and stick with the body only. I’m reading this one out of sequence – missed the first book, but I plan on going back and picking it up. Even so, I wasn’t lost and it works just fine as a standalone. I enjoyed Sugar Rush so much though, along with the characters that I definitely don’t want to miss the introductions of all the characters that will have their own stories told in this series.Above all else, I loved the slow build in the relationship between Colt Avery, the team’s running back and Lilly Hendricks, a baker and co-owner of The Mad Batter Bakery. Both lead characters were very likable. There’s a sugar and spice affection shared between the two of them. Told in alternating points of view from both Colt and Lilly, readers discover so much more insight into their thoughts and feelings for one another and their reactions to the events happening between them and around them. Cole is looking for the real deal in a relationship. A bit cocky and over-confident, he also has a kind heart and is a country boy at heart. Lilly is a bit standoffish, sarcastic – yet sweet and sassy at the same time. They blend perfectly. A cast of entertaining secondary characters leads to some sarcastic and off-the-chart humor in the dialogue. Among them is Lilly’s business partner, Rona, who is the best kind of best friend. She’s a hoot and always there to offer her opinion (whether appreciated or not) and lend a helping hand. The team players, of course, offer up their own variety of male escapades as well. Readers will find just enough angst obstructing the way for a smooth sail into a happily-ever-after. It gives this story some grit and depth, but nothing overly dramatized that keeps love from prevailing. Let’s hear some cheers for the team as the game of football takes an active role, as well. There’s more than just a trip to the locker room or field or a seat in the stands. The players actually make some plays and the author does a good job announcing the game to make it feel real. After all, this is a sports-related romance! Although I wish there had been an Epilogue with a peek into this couple’s future, this is a fun-filled sexy and touching romance with likable characters sure to steal your heart. It definitely puts a touchdown on the scoreboard.

    Great banter! Worthy of 5 stars for the humor however the actual story was a little on the boring side and a bit lacking in the heat department . I give the banter 5 stars and the story 3 so we end up with a final rating of 4 :).

    I've read multiple books by this author, starting with her "Writing on the Wall" books, which I liked very much. Sadly, none of her other books have worked well, if at all, for me. The GistPro footballer meets baker chick. He woos and chases because he has a sweet tooth and she's 'oh so sweet.' She half heartedly tries to evade him.... Until she half heartedly tries to date him. I got bored before I could find out if a wholehearted enters the picture. Highlight ReelThey bake. He plays football. They have a few dates. They bake. He plays football. They discuss their dads. They bake. He plays football. They kiss. They bake. He plays football. They get chased by paparazzi. << That's 73% of the book. • no ow/om drama. There is a mention of past on/off relationship with an OW, but it's not a big issue for the 73% I read. • at, 73%, theres only been one dry hump scene and a couple kissing scenes. • no thoughts or vocalizing 'I love' by 73%. Hell they're just now vocalizing a gf/bf status at this point. • no fights, breakups, or long periods of radio silence between the MCs. • a few one-off cutesy dialogue moments. It's basically a plot of how a very tame romance slowly develops.CharactersThe MMC is a nice guy. He's patient. He's persistent. He knows what he wants (her) and goes after her with kid gloves. I have no complaints about his character profile.That question fucks me up. It takes me by surprise and sends me into high gear where I want to pounce on her. Kiss her. Sex her. Marry her.The FMC is sweet but mildly annoying. Her main problem is her repetitive, overly dramatized hangup over fame. It's not even her own history, but rather how her brother's famous GF dumping him, that has her bent about dating a celeb. It's a weak, lame plot device to slow the romance down to a crawl.Why I Just Can't Take No Mo'I'm bored as hell. Plain and simple - this is a snooze fest. It's one-dimensional -'here's these two very different people; watch them date, do mundane shit, and fall in love.' Aweeee' it's sweet. But, ehhhh'heee is it boring. There was a cameo of the couple from book one and name dropping of all the MMC's teammates, whom I'm assuming will get future books. There's a very small subplot about dementia. Anyway... I kept waiting for something to happen, anything ... ?!?! Nope, nothing. By 73%, I'm long past IDGAF and it's clear nothing of moment is going occur.Bottom LineThis isn't a bad book. It isn't poorly written. It's just a book and writing which are dull as a plastic butter knife. No clue if these two ever have sex, but a dry hump is as sexy as shit gets by my DNF @73%. Otherwise, if you're looking for stress-free reading with no angst, sweet characters, and minuscule substance past a slowly developing romance, then this will work well for you. If you need more oomph to your plot, characters, sex, etc... You might want to keep moving along.

    You know when you were a kid and a new toy came out you begged, pleaded and could hardly wait to get your hand on it?! Tracey Ward's books are like that for me. Every time I hear she's writing a new story I am on the edge of my seat waiting for that option to '1-click'. It's my Christmas morning. When I finished Rookie Mistake I immediately wanted the next book in the series. It was that good. And I can safely say that Tracey Ward has done it again with Sugar Rush. We meet our Hero and heroine and just from that first interaction you know it's going to be a fun ride. "Your racks. They look delicious."Lilly and Colt just click; their banter is hilarious, the attraction immediate and the sexual tension could be felt through each word. Every scene with them was not to sound cheesy but magic. Colt with his smirk and fantastic one-liners was the perfect balance to Lilly's sarcastic, guarded persona. "I want tiramisu. Sweet and complicated. Caffeinated. Bad for you but so good it's worth it. Every last bite." If you're worried about insta-love, don't be. Tracey is the master of the slow burn and makes our characters get to know one another first and that is one of my favorite things about her writing. This is a true love story and shows nothing but two big hearts falling in love. Anticipation is half the fun, don't you think? Ms. Ward also brings back characters from the previous book and it was so fun to see them all. There are some great stories to be told with these guys and I am counting down the days until I can get my hands on them. But I need an honorable mention of Rona. She is Lilly's best friend and added so much hilarity to the story. I loved that girl. I'm hoping she'll be featured in later books *hint, hint Tracey* You can't have a sports romance without some action scenes and Ms. Ward incorporates that into the story flawlessly and had me actually wanting to attend a game and if you knew me you'd know that's a big deal. I would gladly rock a Kodiak jersey (if they existed) and would cheer those boys on wholeheartedly. If you're looking for a fun romance with a little angst, hilarious banter and lovable characters then Sugar Rush and the whole Offensive Line series is for you. I'm sad to say goodbye to Lilly and Colt but can't wait for the next one. 5 Stars! "Everything about her is perfect, even her damage."

    Sugar Rush is the second book in Tracey Ward's Offensive Line series. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline as well as the characters.Colt Avery, the gorgeous rising Los Angeles NFL star whose known for his sugar intake, is happy all the time and is loved by everyone, except the defensive lines of competing teams. He's known everywhere and the paparazzi love to follow him. Lilly Hendricks, the beautiful baker who bakes all things sweet, yet has a humorous snarky side that is anything but sweet. Her life is private and she trusts no one that is famous and wants nothing to do with any of it. The bantering between the two is fun, humorous and captivating.Ward develops the characters and the storyline well. The connection is obvious and their building friendship is appealing. Ward dives deep into the mechanics of football; which is refreshing and insightful. She additionally portrays the difficulties of living under the scrutiny of the paparazzi in a realistic fashion. The most difficult issue she tackles was providing a glimpse into the world of alzheimer's disease. The collision of building friendships, professional athletes, a private life and human health provides a great basis for an entertaining and solid storyline.True to form with the series so far, Ward includes a mixture of supporting cast members. There is enough fodder to last us awhile for this series. I can't wait to see where her next book takes us diving into the mystery of Kurtis Matthews.

    This was a nice and easy read. This story was sweet and the MCs were likable. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the book, due in part to the not so great cover. The guy looks sleazy, I'm sorry. This story, however, was not sleazy at all. Ok, maybe the H had some sleazy inner monologue in the beginning, but that's it. Overall, an enjoyable read that makes you smile and doesn't make you feel gross. Score!What I liked:1) The banter. That bit about Harrison Ford cracked me up. 2) The H really grew on me. I was expecting an overly sexualIzed jerk, and while his jokes leaned pretty heavily that way, he himself mellowed out a lot. He was a nice guy and willing to take things slow with be the h. He didn't pressure her. He was a gentleman. And he didn't automatically revert to his manwhore ways when things didn't go his way. 3) No ow-om drama. This is a story about two adults. It was quiet and not drama filled.4) The writing is as engaging as always. 5) The alternating povs. 6) Not filled with tons of sex scenes. The few that there were weren't very graphic, but felt sweet and meaningful. What I didn't like: 1) No epilogue. 2) Nothing terribly original in the plot.

    It was nice read. I think everything went really fast, maybe too fast. However, if there weren't any dates I wouldn't have thought so.It is a sweet love. As for the football part of the book, it seems different from the ones I read previously (not a lot of games a week, not a need to sleep and rest, not a need of so many intensive trainings, not a need to be careful about food intake or alcohol...), different.It definitely makes me want to read the previous book and the next one.A relatively fast read. Be aware that this book will make you want to eat the bakery nearby.

    LoveSugar Rush, the second stand alone in the offensive line series, was even better than the first in my opinion. I loved Colt Avery’s character in the last one, and even more so in this book! I love his light-hearted, happy, sincere personality. And I absolutely love Lily and her story line. It’s very “good girl meets celebrity” with a great twist! I’m dying to find out about the others in the tight knit group of Kodiaks! This is a great series so far!

    God Colt is fun. And what a perfect partner for him than a baker. These two had chemistry right from the start and it is always great to see the player fall, even if he was obviously wanting to. Great writing, great story and a happy ending.

    Funny entertaining romance read that had me smiling when I wasn’t flat out laughing. Title: Sugar RushAuthor:Tracey WardSeries: Offensive LineGenre: Contemporary RomanceMain Characters:Lilly Hendricks is a bakery owner who feels like she is fading away. She has lost a lot recently, and so is heavy on the defensive, even or maybe especially, from the hot, famous local football star, Colt Avery.Colt Avery is a star football player, used to getting his way. He gets anything he wants at the drop of a hat, cars, women, money, etc. So when the hot baker won’t give him the time of day (or in this case, the gender of his friend’s baby), he knows he needs to turn her no into yes.Plot/Conflict:Colt meets Lilly at a gender reveal party for his coach, and he attempts to flirt out the gender of the baby, since Lilly bakes the cakes that hold the secret. While Lilly admires the sexy football stud, she doesn’t easily fall into his charms, sparking Colt’s interest. Colt’s notorious sweet tooth is also piqued, so showing up at Lilly’s bakery sets their friendship/courtship on a roll. Lilly likes and enjoys Colt’s flirting and sense of humor, but is scared to get burned by his fame and celebrity status. She has things in her life and her past that make her leary of having that kind of attention turned on her. But she will have to look past it to have a relationship with Colt.Loves: The humor was perfectly done here. The banter was witty, sarcastic, and engaging without being forced.“Don’t worry. I hear you. You’re working. You don’t want to be hit on, so I won’t. I’m not that guy.”She snorts lightly. “You know the problem with that guy? He doesn’t know he’s that guy. So saying you are not that guy is meaningless because if you’re that guy, you're not self-aware enough to realize you’re that guy and you immediately become that guy simply by insisting you're not.”“Okay, that -” I blink twice, frowning slightly, “ - it was hard to follow, but I think you’re saying you think I’m an asshole.”Likes: I liked that Colt was on board with the relationship from the beginning, willing to woo Lilly, and understood her issues. Peeves: It was a little slow in the beginning, relationship wise, and it took forever for any sexy times to happen, and when they did, I wanted more. Favorite Quote: I’ve kissed other men. I’ve been in their arms as they thrust their tongue inside my mouth and taken what they wanted from me, but never before did it feel like I was being fed. Satiated. That’s what it is to kiss Colt. To be kissed by him, devoured by him. I’m made more. I’m magnified. I’m melting and pooling, expanding into something I forgot how to be…

    Tracey Ward has firmly established herself as one of my all-time favorite authors. Sugar Rush has the perfect balance between being sarcastic, funny, sexy, and sweet. It has those laugh out loud moments coupled with real drama. It is a beautiful story about learning to let go and taking a risk on love. This story consumed me. The characters drew me in and I didn’t want to let go. Tracey Ward brought me to that magical place where you just want to crawl inside this book and live with these people. It transcends the sports romance genre. It is different. Different in a uniquely clever way. And once you start reading, you won’t want to stop. Sugar Rush focuses on the team’s running-back, Colt Avery and baker Lilly Hendricks. Colt wants something real, something beyond the rush, the challenge, and the game. He puts his heart on the line for Lilly who is scared that yet another person in her life will abandon her. Leave her. Forget her.“I try not to look at him because he’s beautiful and dangerous like a cliff’s edge. This view is amazing but the fall will break you in two.”As these two characters struggle to deal with being in the public eye, the pressure of the game, and the hunger to win, Colt and Lilly also learn to deal with the private heartache of love and loss. “I don’t take losing well, I never could.”I absolutely adore Tracey Ward’s characters. Behind the apple fritters, donuts, cupcakes, cinnamon, and frosting are very real struggles. The characters have layers and reading through Colt and Lilly’s story is like unwrapping expensive paper to discover the delicate prize within. “I want tiramisu…sweet and complicated. Caffeinated. Bad for you but so f*%*ing good it’s worth it. Every last bite.”The supporting characters in Sugar Rush also shine through. Rona, Lilly’s business partner is hilarious, snarky and loves her best friend with her whole heart. She’s the girlfriend who always has your back and keeps pushing you even when you think you don’t need it. Hollis, Trey and Sloane ‘The Hotness’ are back too. I’m so glad there are more football players to explore. I cannot freaking wait for Kurtis Matthews’ book. There is just something about that man….

    Lilly Hendricks owns her own bakery with her best friend, Rona. She meets the running back for the Kodiaks, Colt Avery, when she caters a gender reveal party for one of the coaches. Colt can’t get her out of his head, so he shows up at her bakery the next day when she is having a food show film them baking. Despite her frosty demeanor, they hit it off and sparks fly.Colt begins pursuing her even though she had major reservations about being with someone that’s in the spotlight so much. She gives in, though, and they begin a fun relationship. Colt is a very energetic person, but he finds that Lilly has the ability to mellow him out just by him being in her presence. Lily has been in a funk for quite a while, and Colt managed to bring her happy and playful side out once more. When they run into major problems with the paparazzi, Lilly breaks things off. Will she have the courage to overcome her reservations of being in the spotlight?Standalone, New Adult Sports Romance with a HEA. Mature audiences only.My only issue with this book is Lilly’s aversion to dating someone so in the spotlight. I just feel that her reasoning could have been a tad more developed. Maybe focused more on how she felt when Cassie left versus how badly it affected Michael.On an unrelated note, I would love to read a story about Michael finding love again…maybe with Rona?

    I read this book through Kindle Unlimited. This book is book 2 from the Offensive Line Series. This book is told from duel POV’s and spans about 4-5 months. This review may contain mild spoilers. It’s a sweet story of Colt 23 who is a professional football player and Lilly 24 who co-owns a bakery with her best friend. They meet when she is catering the team coach’s gender reveal party. The quick wit and banter between Colt and Lilly is great and humorous. Especially when she turns him down on almost every move he makes to get her to see him again. She wants slow because of his fame and they do take it slow. Fame destroyed her brother’s relationship and she has family issues she doesn’t need in the public eye. The story doesn’t contain a lot of romance, one sex scene that is very mild after the 50% point. I do like they they fall in love and tell each other before they have sex. They never really have a “date” in the true sense of the word but they hang out or get together with others at a bar or a party. The story could have used a little more one on one between the mc’s. In the end she decides he is worth whatever she has to deal with due to his fame because he is it for her. No epilogue however he proposes in the end. This is my first book of the Offensive Line series so there may be glimpses of them in future books to see if they marry.

    This book is like Tiramisu...Sweet and everything you want in a romance, totally adorable and laugh out loud hilarious, complicated because it's got some real shit going on, caffeinated(you're definitely not sleeping if you read this), bad for you(again no sleeping or productivity around here), and totally and completely worth it.I love Tracey Ward's books and this one didn't disappoint. I mean honestly Lilly stood no chance once Colt came along but it was so fun to watch her try. So many fame romances let the fame be the conflict and I loved that Tracey delved deeper and made it real. The secondary characters were great and weren't taking any shit from Lilly or Colt. Trey and Sloane are back, even Hollis makes an appearance, and it was nice how well Lilly fit with the gang. I can't wait for the rest of their stories and I'm very interested in Mathews'. Dude is a puzzle for sure and I like puzzles so bring him on. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm so sad I read this so fast. This series is so good and if sports romance is your thing I think it definitely needs to find a way onto your list. Football is not my sport and this book has a tad more in it than Rookie did but not to the point where I didn't know what was going down which was great. Seriously people you gotta read this!

    5 Slow and Sweet starsI was looking forward to this one and I'm happily pleased with it. Colt Avery intrigued me when I met him in the last book. He's sugar and spice and everything. His personality is a great combination. Full of heart, laughter, kindness, confident and some inappropriate. It balances out with the sassy, sarcastic, funny and sweet of Lilly's. Awesome characters, lots more football with some real life drama and conflict makes for a very enjoyable read.I love the pastry analogies Tracey Ward used here. Sums up it up pretty well. Sweet and complimented is the way to go. The need for more and a source of mellow, the search for something steady and true. I honestly felt the development and genuine affection between Colt and Lilly. Dealing with the limelight and trivialities of it. Is worth it for love and knowing what's important in life. Tracey Ward has a very engaging and easy to get into writing style that made me devour this one. I think I learned more football in way in that I never bothered to find out. I had a lot of good laughs with the gang back together, Trey and Sloane, the team. The secondary characters always another element to book that made ot better. I'm very curious about Kurtis Matthews now and his story will be a doozy.

    I love sports novels. So great to read how two people deal with fame and anonymity at the same time. Can that be done?Lilly is used to fame in an off way- not personally, but through a different path, and she doesn't like it. But what do you do when you fall for a famous person who can't help but be famous? You have to live with it. Or do you?Colt is a football God, but so down to earth, and tries to deal with Lilly and her aversion to it. She handles it as best as she can. Their connection is real and true, but she has her reasons for not wanting to live in the spotlight, a little different than you'd expect. However their relationship is real, which can't be denied. I wasn't sure how I was going to like this book.. was it going to be a play on someone who was a stereotypical playboy? Would you be able to get past that and like the characters? This book wasn't what I expected at all. I liked Cole from the beginning, and continued to like him until the end. This book will grab you until you finish. I hope you like it as much as I did.

    I absolutely loved RookieMistake so when I saw Sugar Rush was the next book in the series I couldn't wait to grab it. Let me first say that I am a book cover whore, a cover can truly affect whether I read a book and if I hadn't lived Rookie mistake I probably would have never read this one, cover was a bit too cheesy for me.I did love the characters and enjoy the banter and their build up but at times I found it didn't feel realistic. Also It felt off how quickly Colt was totally smitten with Lilly. I found it fell flat at times which left me skimming several times.But my biggest issue with the book were the time and football inconsistencies. Getting good beta readers especially one that knows football would have made a big difference. Inconsistencies truly ruin a book for me, especially time ones, it makes me stop, sometimes go back and re read and that really pulls me out of the story.Overall a sweet read that compared with the first book was just okay for me.

    Writing style?Very nice!Loved the language, loved that we get a bit of an insight into football and strategies.There were a few mistakes but they didn't bother me that much.Plot?Always lovely when a book isn't just about the two main characters and that's it. We get to know Colt's teammates, Lily's friends and both their families. The plot itself was very good ;) It definitely kept you reading but wasn't that big of a surprise most of the time.Characters?Loved those two together. Colt's is an open guy, he embraces life and is just super fun and in a good mood most of the time.Lily is more of a workaholic but with Colt, she shows us a different side and that was super :DSo why only four stars?It was a bit too superficial... And Colt? He loved some loud car and I'm a bit opposed to that because that's just sooo egoistical and he seems like a jerk. He isn't,though, so I could forgive him for that behavior.

    Great Sports Romance!This is the second book in this sports romance series and Tracey Ward did awesome! The story was well written and kept you reading. The book was funny and made me laugh. The book was about Colt Avery a star running back for the LA Kodiak's and Lilly Hendricks a owner of Mad Batter Bakery. Colt being a player on and off the field and the face on billboards and commercials. Lilly not wanting anything to do with fame and wants a quiet life. After being left behind by her best friend who turned famous and then she was cheating on her brother. When Colt and Lilly met, she wanted nothing to do with him. They would bicker back and forth but they both loved the banter between them. Eventually Colt would break down the walls Lilly put up to protect herself and fell in love.

    4.5 Stars for Sugar Rush! This is the second book in this series by Tracy Ward and I REALLY enjoyed this read. Colt is something else. He has such a big personality for show but he is sweet and caring underneath it all. The author did a nice job having his personality be so multi-faceted. I really loved Lilli as well. I really wondered what went on her in her life to make her so gun shy about relationships and love and when the "code" is finally "cracked" my heart went out to her. I love how their relationship develops throughout the book and although it is only a 4-month time frame I felt as if they knew each other for much longer. Highly recommend and look forward to the next in this series.

    Lilly is a baker and she owns the Mad Batter bakery with her friend Rona. She and Colt meet when her bakery caters the gender reveal party for one of the coaches from Colts team. They have an instant connection but Lilly is wary because of Colts image and his fame and her own issues with her family. Colt however is all in from the start and his pursuit of their relationship is seriously sweet. I really liked this book. Colt and Lilly were just too cute together and I loved the tiramisu that was their relationship. This book was light but with moments of perfect poignancy and everything about it worked. I really liked the first book in this series and this one is just as good so I'm really looking forward to what this author will do next with Kurtis Matthews in the next book. 5 stars.
