Title: The Recruiting Trip
Series: The University of Gatica #1
Author: Lexy Timms

Aspiring college athlete Aileen Nessa is finding the recruiting process beyond daunting. Being ranked #10 in the world for the 100m hurdles at the age of eighteen is not a fluke, even though she believes that one race, where everything clinked magically together, might be. American universities don’t seem to think so. Letters are pouring in from all over the country. 
As she faces the challenge of differentiating between a college’s genuine commitment to her or just empty promises from talent-seeking coaches, Aileen heads to Gatica State University, a Division One school, on a recruiting trip. 
The university’s athletic program boasts one of the top sprint coaches in the country. The beautiful old buildings on campus and Ivy League smarts seems so above her little Ohio town upbringing. All Aileen needs to convince her to sign her letter of intent is a recruiting trip that takes her breath away. 
Tyler Jensen is the school’s NCAA champion in the hurdles and Jim Thorpe recipient for top defensive back in football. His incredible ocean blue eyes and confident smile make Aileen stutter and forget why she is visiting GSU. His offer to take her under his wing, should she choose to come to Gatica, is a temping proposition that has her wondering if she might be making a deal with an angel or the devil himself. 

* This is NOT erotica* It is a new adult & college sport romance. 
For mature readers only. There are sexual situations, but no graphic sex. 

The Recruiting Trip begins with Aileen going to Gatica to check out there school. She knows that she probably won't go there, but she couldn't resist going to a different school just to see what it would have been like, and check out a few guys, one in particular. Along the way she meets new friends, and gets an experience she didn't know she needed.. 

This book was okay. I really liked the characters for the most part. But I didn't like the way the story ended. It was very frustrating. Other then that the story line was pretty unique and interesting, so it was a nice short read. I hope the second one is better though.
