Many people will not read this book because of the cover lol. But I’m telling you guys, this book is so worth it! I enjoyed Anything but Minor and not just because it’s a pretty guilty-pleasure book, but because it’s just one of those stories that have the ability to steal my heart away.
The story was told from each of the main characters’ POV, pilot instructor Alice Boyd and Swampgator baseball pitcher Rafe Hembrey. Alice left her hometown and went to Charleston to “stay away” from her strict mom and basically live her life to the fullest. There, she met the sexy playboy baseball star Rafe who made it a point right after their first meeting that he was attracted to her and he wanted them to hook-up. Alice resisted him at first, but because Rafe was just too difficult to avoid, and because she promised a woman named Dutch to watch every Swampgator game, she soon fell for him.
Their love story was so plain and simple and I still loved it. There’s just something about Rafe and Alice’s chemistry that is so addictive. I loved their push and pull relationship, the way they handled the obstacles around them, and how they became better persons even if their family was not perfect.
Anything But Minor is a light-hearted, sexy New Adult sports romance that didn’t fail to capture my heart from start to finish. Rafe was not a perfect male lead. At times he was being an asshole, but he was a redeemable character. Alice, on the other hand, was such a quirky character and she’s the kind of person that I would really love to be friends with. NA fans, you don’t want to miss this book!
