Switch Bidder (Jock Hard #2.5)
Piper has been crushing on Ryder Williams for years.. What better chance to make her move on him than when he’s sacrificing himself on an auction block for a squealing mass of fans at a charity event? Too bad she’d rather hide in the bathroom than raise her paddel; what girl actually bids on a guy who doesn’t know she exists? Not. Piper. But that's what friends are for... One meddling best friend, and an overpriced bid later, and Ryder Willams is Piper's for the taking. Too bad that she has no intention of collecting on his debt. Too bad Ryder is determined to find out why. NOTE:: Switch Bidder is a SHORT #JockHard Novella, at 10,000 words. Aka: Short Novella.

    A fun and sweet quickie that you can read in one entertaining sitting, Switch Bidder may have been super short, but not any less satisfying than Sara Ney's usual.You know how sometimes you have these characters that you're curious about and want to know how they get together, but not quite enough to have a full book for? Piper and Ryder were definitely that. There was just enough intrigue for them to last the novella, and I loved every page of it. It was cute and a little sexy.

Piper and Ryder were definitely that. There was just enough intrigue for them to last the novella, and I loved every page of it. It was cute and a little sexy. Admittedly, Piper is not my typical cuppa when it comes to heroines. She's a little too introverted and reserved. But this book offered just the right dose of her. Ryder was the perfect delicious Ney hero. I loved him and his sweetness. This was definitely cute and with just the right amount of steam to hit the spot just right. I can't wait for more in this series!ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest reviewFind me on:

    This was my Read Me Romance book and so good! It took just a little time to get used to the female narrators voice at first, especially when she was saying Piper's friend's dialogue parts which I absolutely hated because it was so whiny, but I eventually got into it and it wasn't a problem. Overall, this was a super fun story to listen to. It was sweet and adorable for the most part and then Episode Four was ALLLL the steaminess and I loved it. I did think the ending was kind of abrupt though so This was my Read Me Romance book and so good!

    Quick. Sweet. Cute.This was originally offered as a free audio through the Read Me Romance podcast. I guess it’s loosely tied in with her Jock Hard series, but it’s completely standalone. Piper has had a crush on Ryder since freshman year. Now she has a chance to bid on him, but she doesn’t have the lady balls. Lucky for her, her best friend Mallory has a steel vagina and wins his services 😂 not those kind of services. Anyway this is essentially what happens after that, and it’s honestly just a Quick.

This have just got interesting and scary for Pippa. I do wish this book was longer I luvd it I was sucked into the story and I was left wanting more. The character are great and the story is fun and sexy. I would recommend this story sexy book.

Piper is a shy college senior who has been dragged along to a fraternity auction, where her vivacious best friend bids on her behalf for Ryder Williams, the guy she’s had a crush on for four years. Piper is horrified, and doesn’t plan on doing anything about her win, until she runs into Ryder and he confronts her on never getting in touch. Much to her surprise, Ryder knows exactly who Piper is, and he’s not about to let the opportunity to get to know her slip away. Cue the flirty texting and banter, sizzling chemistry and a little bit of a hotness, and we have the beginning of a fantastic love story.It’s only the beginning because this is such a short novella that we don’t really get much more than that – I want more! - but it’s lots of fun with fantastic characters, and I really enjoyed it! 4 stars.An Advanced Reader Copy was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Audio read via Read Me RomanceThis is def a me not you thing....It didn’t start good when I immediately hated the heroines best friend. Maybe it was the narriator but she was the type of girl I’d smack and then keep distance from her. Annoying as shit! It didn’t improve throughout the story either. The heroine was the typical Mary Sue. Virgin, never dated, confused about oral sex, liked the guy for years but never talked him. 🤦♀Hero was better but not by much.

He was bland and has liked the heroine but never made a move. Their first date he tells her he wants to go down on her...like WTF? They don’t know each other, have talked for maybe 20 min and he flat out tells her he wants to go down on her in the back of his truck...so romantic! Fans of Ney will probably love it as it seems to keep in line with her other series but this only solidified to me that she is NOT the author for me.

I really liked Piper and Ryder, and can pretty much guarantee that had I been able to spend more time with them, I would have ended up adoring them both. As for the ‘romance’. The reason this one worked for me is because it falls into the HFN side of the coin since they’ve both just started out on what could be, so the open endedness of it all left me satisfied.~ Copy provided by the author/Wildfire Marketing Solutions & voluntarily reviewed ~

    My first book by this author and the writing is great.

In fact, weeks went by before I finally forced myself to listen to second part.Second part was just a boring.It’s the third part when things became cute and the story got some personality.The forth part was chopped with plot hole. For a guy who didn’t quite recognize the girl in question during his first POV and only said his friend had a crush on her, why all of a sudden he’s been crushing on her just as long. I did a lot of eye rolling and cringing during this part wondering just what JC thought why narrating this one. The final part was cute but way too short.Overall though cute story, I’m on the fence as to if I’d read more from this author solely based on this novella. However, my guess is that in longer format she’d shine.If you like college romance, I’d recommend giving it a try.

It was cute with great characters and I found myself laughing out loud and covering my face in embarrassment for Piper. She was so awkward it was adorable. The story is relatable and endearing. I loved Ryder. He was the perfect hero and stole my heart in a few short pages. Great premise. I want to go to college with them!!! ~Maria

But when Ryan decides to take matters in his own hands, what follows is a fun and flirty story filled with laughs, swoons and banter to die for. Now I want more!!! Love this series so hard and I can't wait for more goodness from this author! ~Ratula, 5 stars***I'm always a little impressed when a novella (especially a short novella) manages to suck me in and get me invested. Usually the pacing of novellas is too quick and my heart wants more time to bask in the feels and the swoons. And, to be honest, I felt a bit of that here as well, like the build up was so perfect and then it took off on turbo speed and sort of left me feeling like I wanted more time to revel in the warm glow of these two fantastic characters. What's different here, however, is that I still felt invested in them. My issue isn't that I felt disconnected from their relationship, only that I wanted more time with it.That said, this was a super fun read. Quick and flirty and a fair bit dirty. It does move very quickly and ends abruptly, but Sara Ney can write the heck out of some playful, sparky chemistry and her dialogue/banter is always on point. There were some laugh out loud moments, and some moments that set my heart aflutter. Switch Bidder was a fantastically refreshing little nip of Ney's addictive Jock Row series. Just a little taste to keep me wanting more. And? It worked. 100%. I loved these characters and this playful little storyline, and I am positively salivating for more of this series! ~ Shelly, 4 Stars

Should she choose to actually to cash in on her gift or leave him unclaimed?Ryder Williams knows exactly who Piper is and has for a very long time but his friend liked her first so has always kept his distance but now he has the chance to spend time with her he will use the opportunity to work for something more all he has to do now is wait for her instructions.Would have loved this to be a lot longer but really enjoyable read.
