[REVIEW] “False Start” (Kingsmen Football Stars #0.5) By: Piper Rayne

What is False Start by Piper Rayne about?

The start of Lee Burrows and I was a college girls’ biggest fantasy.

Campus’ most popular guy, the starting quarterback, the same guy I’ve crushed on forever, notices me—the quiet introvert.

Although, he never would’ve noticed me if he didn’t need my help passing our biology class. I didn’t think I had a chance with him until he started flirting with me and asking me questions like, “Who was the guy you were talking to?” and “Do you have a boyfriend?”

It took a few tutoring sessions before we ditched the library to “study” at Lee’s apartment.

It was a fantasy come true until I found out the truth and vowed that Lee Burrows would never get another chance with me again.

Rating: 4/5 Stars


I was in the middle of reading “You Had Your Chance, Lee Burrows” when I looked up the rest of the series on Goodreads (trying to see if Miles gets his own book), and that’s when I found out about this book! It’s a novella and took just over an hour to read, so it’s a really short read. It does sort of end on a cliffhanger since it’s a prequel to “You Had Your Chance, Lee Burrows,” but that’s to be expected. Although it’s not necessary to read this one before the full length novel (I can’t remember if the whole bet gets explained in the full length), I do recommend it just to give a better background for Lee and Shayna’s second chance romance.

Overall, Lee is such a sweet love interest, and despite his shortcomings, it’s obvious how much he cares about Shayna. The two of them are opposites but still a good match, and I wish we would’ve gotten to see the two of them together before the big reveal that breaks them up to set up the full length. I highly recommend reading this one first!
