Hello sassy people! Today’s post is about Campus God by Jennifer Sucevic! Thank you, Jennifer Sucevic and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review!
(Campus Series Book 4)
by Jennifer Sucevic
Crosby Rhodes is considered a god when it comes to Western Wildcats football.
And who knows?
Maybe he actually is one. There’s certainly no shortage of girls on campus who agree with the sentiment. They swoon over his pretty face, dark messy hair, and hard body honed from years of lifting and two-a-day practices. That alone makes him catnip for the female species.
Add a lip ring and surly disposition to the package and you can understand what all the fuss is about.
Would I be included in that majority?
As far as I’m concerned, Crosby can eat shit and die. The guy is a major jerk. Not to mention, a pain in my assets. And that’s putting it nicely. For reasons I’ve never understood, he goes out of his way to humiliate and hurt me. His barbed comments are always a direct hit before exploding on impact.
I’d love to know what I did to elicit such hatred but that would involve conversing with him and I refuse to do that. There’s only one more semester before graduation. Surely, we can get through the next six months without coming to blows.
That’s the hope, anyway.
Which is exactly why I’m thrown off guard when my nemesis pulls me aside and suggests a truce. Do I necessarily trust him after everything he’s put me through?
Nope. For the time being, I’ll agree so there can once again be peace in the kingdom all the while keeping him at a firm distance. Except that turns out to be impossible. Everywhere I go, there he is. It’s like I can’t get away from him. More shocking than that, he’s actually being nice.
If stomping out the underlying attraction that constantly flares to life between us was difficult before, it’s all but impossible now. But that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’ve been burned by one athlete, I refuse to allow it to happen again.

My Rate: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5
The story had a good plot, I loved the idea of falling in love by text, without seeing them, getting to know each other without the barriers that their identities had.
However, the drama of the conflict was a bit much, didn’t think it was such a big lie or such a big deal.
Also, the resolution of the Andrew part was too fast, I would prefer if Crosby wasn’t friends with Andrew, since he was a huge idiot.
Crosby was also a bit of a douchbag at times, saying things about being able to get any girl he wants and things like that, and also, the fact that he knew Andrew cheated on Brooke for a year and he never said anything grated on my nerves.
The writing was a bit bland, but overall it was an enjoyable book.
Equality rate: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5
This was a bit neutral, it did lose some points for having Catfishing, lies, lack of honest communication, and because Crosby was an accomplice to Andrew’s cheating and that is not okay. But overall it was neutral in the equality rate category.
Adjectives and general thoughts the concept was good, the execution was kinda bland, it was cute at times and hot at others, so overall a good book, but the conflict was predictable and the writing could be more deep inside the characters’ stories and motives.

Bye sassy people!
- I know that some comments I make about decent guys on my posts are the bare minimum a guy should do, so no, they don’t deserve to be treated like gods for doing the minimum, but at the same time, I’ve read a lot of sexist books and I appreciate authors who make characters that can serve as role models and examples of how a decent guy acts and what a loving and respectful relationship looks like. I believe we should always encourage these authors and bring attention to the ones that still write sexist characters and stories.
- I make a lot of comments about sexism and healthy role models in books, but a lot of times these characteristics don’t make the book a bad book and definitely don’t make the author a bad author. Please never shame these authors and these books for these comments, I simply feel that we need to have awareness of the less than ideal situations some books bring us, and not use the romanticized problem as examples of what a relationship should be. Most of these authors are still amazing, and the content they write doesn’t reflect directly with their personal views and opinions. Always make sure to respect and be kind to everyone, even while criticizing their content.

One of my goals in analysing my readings was to talk about important topics, like feminist and consent, because literature, art and culture influence us, and I believe we should always encorage authors who talk about this topics.
