Dating my brother’s best friend? Yeah, that’s forbidden…
Cessna University’s starting catcher.
My life-long crush.
And totally off-limits.
I only want a few things in life.
Graduate with a fashion degree.
To be taken seriously.
And Noah Geren.
After my first year of college, I let the idea of him go.
And it almost worked
Until that late summer night.
My best friend’s sister.
The secret star of my late-night fantasies.
Hotter than sin.
There’s a code among best friends and teammates—no dating their sisters.
Too bad I didn’t listen.
One weak moment changed everything.
And nothing at all.
I’m not good for her.
They call me the sensible one,
But the more Shannon and I are forced to be together,
Staying away makes less sense,
And the reasons become hard to remember.
But I need to stay strong.
For reasons she’ll never understand.

Behind the Count by Kimberly Readnour
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is book #2 in the Cessna U Wildcats series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to understand the series, I recommend reading this great series in order.
Shannon is trying to live her best life. She has overcome weakness, health issues, and has learned to stand on her feet. Now she is trying to survive college with her overprotective brother hovering nearby.
Noah has been in love with Shannon for a while now. She seems attracted to him as well. If only he wasn't best friends with her brother. That is a bond he cannot risk.
This was such an emotional roller coster ride. I was glad I was on it, however. I had been excited to read this story and it did not disappoint. This couple has eyes for each other and truly excels when they are together. If only they could learn to jump in. I loved that is was fast paced, had lots of heat, and was sincerely a longtime coming.
