New Release & Review: Groupie by M. E Carter

Title: Groupie
Series: Juked #2
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Sports Romance Standalone
Release Date: November 4, 2016

 

Groupie
/ˈɡro͞opē/
a person, especially a young woman, who regularly follows a celebrity in the hope of meeting or getting to know them.

See example Tiffany Wendel: 

Whore. Slut. Cleat Chaser. I’m used to the names so they don’t bother me. These are my boys. My friends. So what if I like to have dirty sex with them? My body is no one’s business but mine.

Why is Rowen Flanigan making me re-think how I live my life? Making me question my choices? He’s only a rookie.

Rook·ie
/ˈro͝okē/
a member of an athletic team in his first full season in that sport.

See example Rowen Flanigan:

Player. Son of a legend. Rookie.
Sure, I’d heard the stories of the groupies before. Who hasn’t? I’ve just been more sheltered than my teammates. So what? I didn’t expect her to be smart. Witty. Kind. She brings me to my knees in every way – except one. 

That part? I’m saving until the time is right.

So how in the hell did I end up falling for a Groupie like Tiffany? And how in the hell is this going to work when everyone at my job has had a piece of the one thing I haven’t?

Groupie is the second book in the Juked series by M.E. Carter. I have not read the first book, but you can read Groupie as a stand alone. I am glad that I did not read the first book, because I had a fresh perspective of Tiffany. She works for the local tv station in the sports section and is a BIG fan of the soccer team. She is what we call a “Team Friend” and enjoys the many perks of being their friend. Free tickets, party invites, and “personal” encounters with the players. Tiffany is looked down upon by a lot of people because of her “relationship” with the team, but Tiffany is comfortable in her skin and not ashamed. After all, she is good to the team and gets them a lot more coverage in the press than they would normally get.

Rowan is the up and coming Rookie on the soccer team. He is quiet and humble and likes to watch people. He is not out for attention and wants to make his own way. He would rather people not know that his father is a rather famous soccer player, which makes him soccer royalty. Rowan needs to have his talent speak for him. He is a unique and special man, one which is saving himself for a special woman.

Tiffany and Rowan meet each other before a team party and are intrigued by each other. The more they get to know each other, the more they like about each other. Their lifestyles couldn’t be more different, but a friendship blooms between them. A friendship that makes Tiffany want more in life than what she currently has. Will she give up being a Groupie for the Rookie?

I enjoyed Groupie. Tiffany is a bad girl with a good heart. She doesn’t take any crap and does not apologize for who she is. Rowen was a surprise. I thought for sure he was going to be the bad boy soccer player, but he was a sweet character that made me love him right from the beginning. I liked the connection these two characters had and maintained throughout the book. Groupie is a great story about friendship and love. A good read all around.

“This is the kind of book that makes you want to throw your kindle….no, literally. I threw my damn kindle across the room. But thank baby Jesus it didn’t break, because DAYUM! Groupie just made me love M.E. Carter even more!” –Jessica Prince, Author

“Mother, reader, storyteller – ME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.”
