Book Review: Downed by Jen Fredrick

DOWNED (Gridiron #3)

by Jen Fredrick


He’s the guy no one likes…

Despite winning two national championships, JR “Ace” Anderson was sent packing from his old school after losing the trust of his coach. At Southern U, he has a second chance to prove that his college legacy isn’t endless debauchery and selfishness. But his reputation precedes him, and his teammates offer a chilly welcome in the locker room. The one person who is willing to accept him is the very woman he should stay away from—his new coach’s daughter.

She’s the girl everyone loves…

Bryant Johnson’s only goal in life is to make others happy, even at her own expense. One look at her father’s new star quarterback, and she knows that Ace is her next project. With a reputation for being a “jerk whisperer”, Bryant has spent her last three years at college reforming sorry behavior and turning bad boys into the best boyfriends ever. In Ace, though, she’s met with surly resistance and a sizzling attraction she doesn’t expect. Fixing this wounded warrior will be her biggest challenge yet. Not falling for him will be even harder.

Between her big heart and his damaged one, a battle is ensuing. In this game of love, every defense will crumble.

My Review

★ ★ ★ ★ 

So let me just say that I absolutely hated Ace in Jockblocked. I was even considering not finishingvJockblocked, and not reading Downed because I disliked him so much.

I haven't had a reaction about a character I disliked so strongly in a long time.

But never the less, I picked up Downed because of all of the reviews, and the fact that Jen Frederick is such an awesome writer that I just had to give Ace a second chance.


I winded up loving Ace, and this book in general. Bryant is what really did it for me.

I adored her. She was a sweet southern bell with a heart of gold. I loved how everyone adored her and she in return cared about everyone.

I just knew she was going to be perfect for Ace. Ace was a grade A jerk, but he redeemed himself.

I can not wait for the next book in this series. I am seriously on pins and needles.
