Well, I was about ready to give this my 'just okay' stamp. I thought the romance was rather ho-hum, I struggled to be passionate towards Darcy and Robbie as a couple. I wasn't particularly excited with Robbie, I guess. I thought his secret didn't justify him to do the awful things (like being judgmental or pushing the heroine away) he did. IMHO, Darcy did most of the attempts to keep their relationship. AND, for a series with "Football" on the name, I didn't see too much football related scenes.
But there were still some parts that entertained me, the whole misunderstanding with Darcy thinking of Avery as Robbie's boyfriend made me smile (Avery was Robbie's dog, by the way). The porn movie titles that came up between Darcy and her friend Kat (I voted: Fourth and Extra Long by the way) as well. I thought Darcy's relationship with her cousin Logan was also nice.
What made this story ended up having two stars was not a consequence of those reasons written above. It had something to do with what happened to one of the teenagers here, a gay teenager named Tyler. My opinion will be rather rant-y, plus it will be specific to a particular plot. So under spoiler tag it goes.
It took out just the slight 'okay' feel I had with the book, thus my 2-stars.
