Traditions are important. Especially in the South.
College football. Rivalries. Tailgating. Halftime shows.
Some things just don’t change.
Until Reese Holland shows up with her long legs and no-bullshit attitude to audition for the prestigious all-male Rodner University snare line.
It doesn’t matter how much hazing she has to endure from Laird Bronson, with his narrowed green eyes and arrogant smirk. She wants that damn spot, and she’s more than good enough to earn it.
She expects there to be tension. Even friction.
But not sparks hot enough to burn the entire campus down.
What is the story about exactly? It’s about this fearless young college freshman named Reese Holland who does the unthinkable – she tries out for the all-male snare line. At first, I was confused why would she want to do such a thing. I thought it was completely asinine but once you get to discover more of her background, not only did I completely understand where she was coming from but I realized just how remarkable her character was. She made such lasting impression as did her counterpart Laird Bronson.
Laird Bronson is a senior and the captain of the snare line. Yeah – that entire situation could have gotten awkward real fast but the author handled the entire situation with so much ease and precision. I loved how everything all played out. Reese and Laird’s relationship started off as one intense physical attraction but as the story flowed they became so much more. I couldn’t ask for a better pairing between a couple.
If these amazing characters aren’t enough for you, I am certain that the backstory will be. It tugged at my heartstrings to the point where I was an emotional mess which in a way I appreciated because it gave the story so much more depth.
Drumline is definitely one of my favorite books that I’ve read this summer. Why you might ask…because it was perfect! It had precisely everything that I look for in a romance – passion, chemistry, the right amount of angst balanced out with a touch of comedy. Read this book. I guarantee you will fall head over heels with these characters and their story.
