The End Zone, a sexy friends to lovers romance from L.J. Shen is available LIVE!

Jolie Louis is a smart girl.

She knows that her best friend, Sage Poirier, is a bad idea.

He’s a walking, talking cliché. The Adonis quarterback with the bulging biceps and harem of fangirls trailing behind him on campus like a stench you can’t get rid of.

Sadly, it is also the very reason she can’t seem to stay away from him.

No, wait. That’s not fair. They’re also roommates, at least until May, when they graduate from college.

Jolie is already straddling the line between friendship and more when Sage comes to her with an offer she cannot refuse: be his fake girlfriend and live for free for the rest of the semester.

She tells herself that she can handle it.

He’s just the boy she saved ten years ago, right?

Wrong. So very wrong.

He is a man now, and she is his captive

Heart, body, and soul…

** THE END ZONE is now available with an extended epilogue and surprise bonus content that will blow fans of L. J. Shen away! **

Sage Poirier and Jolie Louis become neighbours at age ten and fast friends after she showed hm he could trust her. Sage is a spunky quarterback on the college team, already having professional scouts take him seriously. Nearing the end of their college years their friendship changes course with some very bumpy patches.

Great descriptions, including some humorous episodes like this….
“…if I hadn’t known him since age ten, I would probably find him as sexually attractive as a gassy rat.” Jolie thinking about Sage.
…make it easy to transport yourself into the story, seeing things very clearly.

A thoroughly entertaining short story that is fast paced and super easy to read. I especially liked the extended epilogue, so funny..and hot!

A great short story by the extremely talented LJ Shen… Sage and Jolie are soul mates from the age of 10 when Sage moves next door to Jolie and she ends up handing him her friendship and also her heart. The two are inseparable all the way through school and end up roommates in College when Sage’s teammate makes his intentions towards Jolie known… Sage has to come up with a way to keep “his” Jolie away from a man who could be the “one”. The chemistry between Sage and Jolie is off the charts HOT… I really enjoyed this quick, sports romance more than I thought as I’m not usually a fan of this genre but Miss Shen really draws you into this incredible story!
