Dating my brother’s best friend? Yeah, that’s forbidden…

Noah Geren.

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.

Shannon Smith.

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.

My Rating - 5 Stars!

As a huge fan of college sports romances, I was excited to read Behind the Count. The second book in the Cessna U Wildcats series, this Kimberly Readnour book is everything I was hoping it would be. 

We met Noah and Shannon in Swinging Strike, and now we get their thrilling story. And what a story is it!

I love this book; the writing, the characters, the couple, the friends, everything! The author does a wonderful job combining a great variety of tropes, including brother's best friend, forbidden romance, and friends to lovers. 

The writing is fantastic, completely drawing the reader into the feelings involved for the two main characters. There's angst, want, need, and more to keep the reader riveted throughout. 

As well, the reader is treated to plenty of baseball behind the scenes moments, which is a pure delight.

I truly love everything about Behind the Count and I can't wait for more from Cessna U!
