Sacked: A Football Romcom
(Chesapeake Commanders #2)
by Lizzi Stone
Revenge is a dish served in pairs… so when Chase and I use each other to get back at our cheating exes, will we find love instead?
When I find my boyfriend cheating on me with another guy’s girlfriend, the last thing I want is to get him back. Instead, I reach out to the boyfriend of the girl that he was cheating with. Chase is a star football player, and I can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that someone would be dumb enough to cheat on him. Together, we hatch a plan: We’ll pretend to date so that our exes can see what they’ve been missing.
As the two of us get closer and thoughts of my ex to start to drift away, things begin to heat up, and we both get scared. Feelings were not part of the bargain, but it looks like it’s not going to matter. Are the wounds from our exes too fresh for us to overcome? Will we be able to leave the lie that we have been living in, or will admitting our true feelings so that it was the truth all along?

My Rate: ⭐⭐ 2/5
I didn’t enjoy the writing. It was stiff and robotic and the character development was lacking and I honestly did not understand ANY of the character’s choices.
Equality rate: ⭐⭐ 2/5
It just seems counterproductive to make a story where the main characters are going out of their way to make their cheating exes get back with them.
The whole point of my Equality rate was to talk about healthy relationship/personality role models in books. This premise is exactly the opposite of what I would want any of my friends to do.
Adjectives and general thoughts: Had a good premise, but the execution wasn’t good enough.

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.
