    heroin is a whore:Do you guys know Tiffany?”“We’ve met,” Santos says noncommittally, the woman next to him still watching me. My heart starts to race, and I’m praying this is not who I think it is. “This is my wife, Mariana.”Shit.Guilt hits me like a ton of bricks. I knew Santos was married when we hooked up, but I never thought I’d come face-to-face with his wife. Groupies never interact with the families. We stay distant. Separate. The two never overlap.Being in front of her, seeing her face, her pregnant belly…

    I don't like my heroes being whores and specially reading scenes with him and ow. The same goes for the heroine. In this book the hero (view spoiler)[watches her giving another player a blow job (hide spoiler)] for a contest Ewwww. And another reviewer said the heroine didn't care if the player (view spoiler)[was married,she would have sex with him anyway. He was the one who own the wife faithfulness, not her (hide spoiler)]I confess I'm not a fan of groupies of any kind because they sound desperate. Sexual freedom is one thing. Having sex with a whole team because of their status is something different. IMHOhttps://www.goodreads.com/review/show...https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

    DNF @ 20%I just couldn't do it...I'm all about sexual liberation, especially with the books we immerse ourselves in where the men are typically the manwhore and get away it while the girl is the opposite.The h loves sex. Has zero shame in it. All fine and dandy. But the s**t that goes down and how...and the (view spoiler)[the H watching her give a guy a blow j*b during a contest (hide spoiler)] just made me kind of sick to my stomach. Only because if you knew about the H and how sweet he comes off and his "deal", you'd totally get it.While this is a highly rated book and fan fave based off the reviews, this one is just not for moi.

    4.5 Red Headed StarsWhen I heard ME Carter was writing a book about Tiffany, that Tiffany my first reaction was.....why? Why would you do that? Because I knew that she was going to make me not hate her. And I really like hating her. Warning: This is a spin off of Juked. You could read it as a stand alone, but then you won't know how much you don't like Tiffany. You won't know the backstory. The one that you need to fully appreciate this story.Rowan is a rookie with the Houston Pro Soccer team. He is the son of a famous European player but he doesn't want anyone to know. He wants to earn their respect. So he keeps his family history and his hair under wraps. Tiffany likes to hang around with the team. She is a "Friend of the Team". She enjoys the perks of being around the guys. The tickets. The parties. She is a groupie. And she's ok with that. She's young, beautiful and makes the choices she wants. No regrets. Until she met Rowan.Rowan Flanigan is going to be trouble for me. Just know it.Rowan makes her want more. Makes her feel like there might be more to life than the next party. Have I gotten love and lust mixed up? Is that even possible? ...and while I'm not ashamed of myself, this if definitely a different spin on the idea.But you know the problem with a different spin? No one really appreciates it. No one is really on board with the new spin. People are pretty set in their spinny ways. You think you belong here now that you've finally gotten your claws in one of the guys. But you don't. You're trash...I want to tell you so much more...but I don't do spoilers. So I won't tell you about the sweet moments, the fights, the bangers and mash or the texting. I will tell you about the commitment, the decision to stick by your decision. It's that the mark of character? Follow through. Even when it's not easy or popular.I want to be faithful to my wife someday....I want to know that the person I have all that with is the one I love more than anyone or anything else in the world, forever.I didn't think I could like Tiffany. I sure as hell didn't want to. I was not going to find her courageous or sympathetic. Damn it ME Carter. Groupie is the story of forgiveness and expectations. Forgiving yourself and rising to the expectations that others have for us even is we don't have them for ourselves. You're here with me. Yes, ME (short for Manipulator of Emotions) Carter did it. She gave the Slut her Story. And i bought in. All in. Damn it.

    So often we find a book about the bad boy with the heart of gold but it is rare that we encounter a book about the bad girl. Tiffany Wendel is that girl. Unapologetic for her life choices, Tiffany is more than a groupie. As the tagline says, every slut has a story, and Groupie is confirmation of that statement. Beyond the bright lights and fame of professional sports is a world that only a few are privy to. Women and sex are laid out like a buffet for athletes. Temptation and opportunity are everywhere. With a strong commitment to himself and his future self, Rowen Flanigan knows how to avoid temptation. That is until he meets a beautiful girl that intrigues and challenges him. The relationship between Tiffany and Rowen isn't easy and it isn't without pain but it is real and it is inpiring. Love isn't about changing for someone else, love is about accepting the person for who they are and how they make you feel. M.E. Carter has done the unthinkable. She has taken the one girl that nobody wants to like and made her lovable. Yes, really. M.E. Carter's ability to have the reader doubting their first impression of Tiffany is nothing short of pure talent. But, it's when you finish the book and realize that every person has a story. Every woman is more than they appear. Behind all of the masks we wear, whether they be real or how we portray ourself, human nature is simple. We want to be loved. We want to be respected. And we want to be accepted. Tiffany is no different. Tiffany has a story, she's more than a slut.

    3.5 Conflicted StarsI was apprehensive about reading this book because I wasn't sure if I would like the heroine-I've read this series backwards (Goalie appealed to me first) and I knew Tiffany had played a part in ruining Santos' marriage although, let's face it, he was the  married  party who stood up , took vows and then obliterated the whole faithful element of said vows. I found the characters fascinating and Rowen is a sweet guy who falls hard for Tiff and she finally finds someone who wants her for her , not just a warm, willing body. I think for me, I struggled with seeing so many of the married players openly have sex with the groupies and the blow job contest was gross. This book really took me out of my comfort zone. I thought the nude pic being splashed across the web was written very well and with brutal honesty . I felt really sorry for Tiff. HEA? YesCheating? Not between Tiff and Rowen but at the start Tiff has explicit sex with Santos and Mack watches.

    I have to be honest here. I was nervous about reading this book. There were a lot of strong emotions expressed by readers and not all of them were love. In fact after reading some of the reviews, I was pretty sure I'd hate it. But nevertheless, I loved Juked and I love the author, so I bought it anyways. And then it sat on my Kindle for a LONG time, before I finally started into Tiffany's story. And now I have to eat crow. I was wrong and shouldn't have pre-judged the book. Let me start by saying this book was really, really well-written. It is a rollercoaster of emotions for both the reader and the characters. It is a love story that will break your heart a few times, before putting it back together. This isn't a sunshine and roses kind of romance. This is raw, real, messy, ugly and beautiful. Some of the scenes were very uncomfortable for me to read. As in, made me physically sick to my stomach. What Tiffany and the other groupies would do for the team made my head spin. And without even giving it a second thought. It wasn't that Tiffany necessarily thought that she didn't deserve better than how the players treated her, but more that she loved the rush of sex and was addicted to being the centre of attention as a team groupie. She was convinced that these guys were her friends and that what stayed behind closed doors would stay there. It didn't matter if the player was married, attached or single, Tiffany and the groupie girls were at their service. Rowen the rookie, couldn’t believe what he was seeing his new teammates doing at the after parties. As the son of a very famous pro-footballer, he’d of course heard stories about groupies, but he’d managed to avoid it until he arrived on scene with the Mutiny. To say he was appalled at the behaviour of both the women and his teammates would be putting it mildly. He was brought up to respect women, to be certain that sex was going to mean something before giving it away and to be faithful to the person you love. Rowen wasn’t even really a drinker, but he wanted to fit in with his new teammates, so he was trying to be a good sport by attending the parties. Imagine his surprise when he finds out that the beautiful, smart, funny woman he was flirting with at a bar earlier in the week, is Tiffany, the reigning queen of the groupies (among other things).He’s shocked, but smitten with her none the less. Rowen has a hard time making sense of the two sides of Tiffany that he’s met. He knows there’s so much more to her than the locker room gossip and her the reputation that precedes her, but can the conservative, quiet Rowen look past, well…her past? Even if she decides to give Rowen a chance, she’s shown that she has no problem helping husbands cheat on their wives, so why wouldn’t she cheat on Rowen? Why would she be willing to take things slowly with Rowen, when she can get action whenever she wants it? Why? Because Rowen wants to give her everything. His love, his life, his body and when he commits to something or someone, he’s all in.The odds are definitely stacked against them. Even if Rowen can get past his insecurities and Tiffany is willing to live a little more on the tame side of life, they have so many other people working against them. It’s not an easy road for either of them. In fact the journey is quite gut-wrenching and at times, I wondered how they could possibly make this work. But when two stubborn people decide to fight for what they want, it takes a lot more than disapproval, cruelty and threats to break them apart.An emotional, eye-opening, surprising love story.No cliffhanger. Standalone. Second book in the Texas Mutiny series. HEA.

    I couldn't finish it and here's why:1. Virgin male soccer player who's saving himself for Mrs. Right2. Girl who literally sleeps with the entire soccer team because they are her "friends"3. Those two aren't enough?

    DNF 35%I tried really I did. I'm not a fan of groupies in general I admit as much. They give actual fans a bad name. Partly why this was difficult to connect with as much as Ioved Juked. It was very uncomfortable to read. I'm all for no double standards in regards to promiscuity but the heroine's choices and actions were questionable and didn't sit well with me. I just wanted a background of the next character's book. Now promoting cheating and all that is all whole other can of worms. Idealistic and real of how the sports world is filled with groupies, puck bunny, cleat chaser etc. I appreciated what the author was doing in another perspective and that she's a person too. Can it be possible? Highly improbable. No doubt M.E. Carter tells a good story and does it well. The writing is no issue at all. I will definitely read the author's future works and the next book cause it sounds like a doozy.

    Groupie ~ 4.5 starsA couple of months ago I read my first book by M.E. Carter, Juked. I’m not a sports fan, but I really liked the story and its characters. One of the side characters was a team groupie, Tiffany. To my surprise I learned she would be the heroine of the next book, I didn’t like her at all. Groupie tells us her story, and to my surprise I’ve ended loving Tiffany, and her man Rowan.“So you’re a groupie.” I blink in surprise. It’s not as simple as answering yes or no. “That’s what some people call me.” “What do you call yourself?” “A fan.” “A fan,” he deadpans. I shrug. “A super-‐fan?” “That’s probably more accurate.”Tiffany is a 22-year-old sports producer. She loves sports, and loves the job she that she has. Tiffany is a free woman, who isn’t shy about her sexuality and she enjoys having sex. Being a groupie/friend to the Texas Mutiny soccer team gives her what she needs; lots of hot sex with her friends, no strings attached. She doesn’t care if her boys are married or not; she doesn’t think of the consequences of their parties, it’s all fun. The moment Tiffany meets Rowan she knows he’s different. He treats her so very differently than his team mates, and slowly she begins to wonder if being a groupie is worth is all.“I’ve never claimed to be anything other than what I am. I’m not here to snag a player as a husband. I’ve never striven to become a wife or girlfriend, or WAG as they’re more commonly called. I just like partying with the guys, and I love sex. Period. The end. So why does Rowen’s opinion matter to me?”Rowan is the Texas Mutiny rookie. As the son of a soccer legend he has grown up with football, it’s basically all he knows. From an early age his parents have taught him to treat women with respect, his coach in college also told him to be an example, not to be a player. Groupies are not unfamiliar to Rowan, but to see his teammates party with them and the things they do… To say Rowan is shocked is an understatement, especially because he actually likes one of the groupies. Tiffany intrigues Rowan, he doesn’t like her actions, but he sees her as a nice girl and he wants to get to know her.“Even with the hot water pounding my muscles, I can’t relax. Just knowing what these guys think of Tiffany, the way they talk about her behind her back, it’s enough to make me want to beat the shit out of them.”The moment Tiffany and Rowan meet there is a connection between them. Tiffany is a bit surprised; Rowan doesn’t want sex like the other men, he wants to talk to her, wants to know her. After a bit of a rocky start the couple starts to spend a lot of time together, and Tiffany learns that there is much more to a relation then just sex. It’s about the intimacy, about friendship and getting to know each other’s hopes and dreams. Rowan has a hard time with Tiffany’s history, but he knows if he wants to be with her, he needs to let go. With a past like Tiffany’s you can feel something is about to happen, and of course it does. But Rowan, the gentleman he is, doesn’t want to dwell in the past, all he wants is a future with the beautiful girl.As I already said, I didn’t like Tiffany in the previous book. She’s the party girl who doesn’t mind to have sex with married men, it’s just fun for her. But slowly, I started to like her, my heart broke for her when the bomb burst. She didn’t deserve it. Yes, her actions where not smart and she didn’t think about the people (namely the wives and girlfriends) she hurt while partying with her boys. But she didn’t do it alone, the men are just as responsible as she is, even more because they are in committed relationships. But this is the way society sees groupies; guys get a pat on the shoulders for sleeping with them, while the girls get shamed for being easy. I love how Rowan looks through Tiffany’s façade, and saw the sweet, smart girl she is.“I try to convey how much reverence I have for her in my touch. To show her how precious she is to me. “I love you, Rowen,” she says, her voice breaking with emotion. “I love you, too, Tiffany. So, so much.”I never thought I would love Groupie, but I do. I give the story of Rowan and Tiffany 4.5 stars. I can’t wait for the next book, Goalie.www.mariekesbooks.com

    After reading the first book of this series yesterday, I was left a tad disappointed; however, a preview for this one came up and I was all like yaaaas please.This book was way better. And honestly, this shit is real. I have been fortunate enough to not have had to experience what the heroine had to go through, thank the lord but man does it make you fucking feel. Slut shaming is no joke. I know a lot of people were butt hurt after reading the party scenes at the beginning but I thought they were awesome. I felt like they were a necessary addition to the plot and my bucket list. Anyway. I won't be continuing on with the series because the next book just doesn't interest me but if this one can totally be read as a standalone if you don't want to read the first one. I am glad I gave M.E. a chance. Started the year off right.

    4 Platypires for Groupie by M.E. CarterHOT DAMN. M.E. Carter knows how to push those limits. I actually have to laugh at some of the negative reviews for Groupie. Really? What do you expect with a book called Groupie? A book about a girl feeling shame for sleeping around? Yeah, this is not that book. So if you're into slut shaming then this book is not for you.I immediately had to pick up Groupie after reading Juked. I could not put it down and read it all in one day. The story was a roller-coaster of drama with a lot of hot sexy scenes. Again, just damn.I also need to give M.E.Carter credit for showcasing my city of Houston in a positive light. The spots that were mention in both books are legit Houstonian destinations. Kudos. Overall, this was a really good read. I would recommend it those who don't get their panties all twisted.

    This book made me angry because I see it as anti-feminism disguised as pro female sexual freedom. The heroine of Groupie is the cleat chaser from Juked. I love a good female/male roles swapped where the woman is the player and the hero is less experienced. But that is not this story. Tiffany loves sex so much that since she was 18 she's been a "friend of the team" and has group sex, blow job races, circle jerks, you name it with all of them. And with all of them, I mean even the married ones, of which she's well aware. At one point she is competing in a blow job race and the guy says his wife will be upset if he participates and she says -- oh come on no big deal I'll be fast. We also get a graphic scene of her having sex with another married guy who has three kids and a pregnant wife. I kept reading thinking the author would give Tiffany a moment of enlightenment and guilt, but every time I thought it was going to happen it did not. "I do feel a twinge of guilt about sleeping with her husband, but I absolutely refuse to show weakness to someone who has done the exact same thing I have." Really? That's how she continues to justify her actions throughout the entire book. Frankly, her morals are compromised and I just couldn't get over it. No character arc whatsoever except she stops when the virgin hero tells her he wants monogamy. During this conversation she says "I've been young and single the last several years and have been enjoying myself. But don't misunderstand; monogamy is a must in my relationships." No girl, it's actually not. She never gets it and I don't get why other people loved this book so much. To each her own.

    A change in POVGreat reading! Apart from a very well-written story, this author gives us a look into the other side of the coin, the groupie's POV. In the first pages, I was a little disgusted by the promiscuity and depravation these groupies show. Then I realize that they love sex, are secure in their bodies, and they're in it like a game, like a power trip, using the players as a drug, and the players use them to deal with the adrenaline high after the game. I'm pretty sure that most groupies are also into finding husbands or stealing other woman's husbands among the players, but that aspect is not shown here. Rowen is the new player on the team, the rookie, and comes from soccer royalty, as his father is a legend in European football. Tiffany is a sports program producer and apart from helping the team get publicity, she's also "friends" with the team, meaning "groupie".The story has a lovely love story, and a sort of lesson in karma. When your actions hurt other people, at some point karma will bite your butt. This couple go through some rough spots but their actions are commendable, their loyalty, devotion and support to each other made for a great love story.

    This book was absolutely brilliant! it was real, sweet, hard, heartbreaking, sad, etc. The author did an amazing job in portraying what happens behind the closed doors of every locker room in the history of sports; she stated the facts like it is, what people goes through.. the difference between a wag and a groupie and how they try to differentiate from each other.. In this book we meet the Rookie Rowen and Tiffany sports producer and groupie.. their chemistry was instant since the moment they met and it kept turning hot and heavy as chapters were read.. If you want to read a real sports book then definitely read this one! *receiving an ARC of this book did not affect my loving of the book*

    This book was given to me for an honest review2 stars.I know that I saw reviews go up and they are great reviews. I am so glad there are people out there that enjoyed this book. I didn't. I really tried to finish the book and I was excited about reading it, but I only got through forty percent of the book. I didn't like that the author was putting together a cleat chaser and a virgin soccer player. It made no sense and the stuff she did in front of him before they were together wasn't appropriate. I couldn't get into this book at all and it looks like I'm alone at this point with all the good reviews that are out there. It was too far fetched and I really can't see how this story would work out. I hope the author the best and I'm sorry that I didn't like the book.

    I fell in deep like with ME Carter when I read Juked, but after reading Groupie...I just might be crushing hard on her now. Damn...never knew this author could write such smoking hot sex scenes, but boy did she unleash her inner vixen in this book! Book 2 in the Juked series, this book can be read and enjoyed as a standalone, but why one would want to miss out on the full impact of the intertwining characters from book 1 is beyond me. Both are so much fun...sexy, witty, and hard to put down. Can't wait till book 3, Goalie, which I believe is releasing some time in 2017!

    To say this female character is a bad girl with a good heart is not how I see her at all. Hero deserved better. Whether he player was married or not she didn't care. That pretty much voids out the good heart wouldn't ya say?

    I’ve really come to like M.E. Carter’s books. I became enthralled with the humor and realness of her #MyNewLife books, and of course Juked was a sports romance. Despite Groupie being in the sports romance category, it had elements I wasn’t positive I could overlook. I’m really glad I gave it a chance, though. Summary:Tiffany Wendel has heard the nasty comments, names, and rumors about her. Being close to the Texas Mutiny, a groupie if you will, but mostly being their friend, she’s heard it all before and it doesn’t phase her. Just because she likes to party with her friends and have sex with them doesn’t mean she should feel ashamed. She likes sex, and her body is hers. No one can tell her what to do with it. Or at least that’s how she feels before the rookie starts to make her rethink how she lives. Rowan Flanigan is Soccer royalty. He’s been a part of the game in one way or another his entire life. He’s heard stories about cleat chasers before, but up to this point, he’s stayed sheltered, focusing only on making his dreams happen without using his dad’s name or reputation. When he meets Tiffany, he can’t visualize her as a groupie. Not when she’s so smart, successful, and kind. The feelings she invokes brings him to his knees, and he knows he affects her in the same exact way. How could it work between them, though. Tiffany is starting to understand some of the mistakes she made, being what she was to the team, but how can Rowen forget that everyone he works with has had a piece of what he so desperately wants? Can love overpower Tiffany’s doubt that Rowen’s not ashamed to be seen with her, and will Rowen be able to compete for a woman so sexually active when he’s saving that part of himself for the right time? As I said, from reading the blurb and reviews, Groupie wouldn’t have been a book I’d normally pick up. It was on my radar only because it’s book two in a series I really enjoyed the start of. To begin with, I started it out of curiosity about the characters I was introduced to. I stuck with it because I became engrossed in the story and its outcome. First, the easy part: Rowen. I adored him. He was such a refreshing hero; completely unorthodox, but still gratifyingly alpha-male. I honestly believe he was a huge part of the reason I kept reading. Now, Tiffany. She is not a heroine I really liked, but I also sometimes did. Her after-hours connection to the team wasn’t entirely understandable to me. What I did like about her, her confidence, her wit, her humor, her strength, and her love of sports, was all overshadowed by one thing. I actually didn’t have an issue with her being a groupie. Groupies are real and they have a purpose. A woman’s body is beautiful and it’s a woman’s choice how she wants to use it. I agreed with Tiffany in that respect. She was who she was, and enjoying sex is nothing to be ashamed of. My issue came with how she was with the married players. I detest cheating, and it really throws a mental block up for me. I think, if the story hadn’t been as compelling as I found it, I wouldn’t have been able to continue reading it. For me, it’s a betrayal of the sisterhood that’s already so hard to navigate. I hated that Tiffany had no hesitation or guilt about her role in these men cheating, until she literally came face to face with it. The fact that her thoughtless choices affected much more than her bed partner, but his wife, and sometimes children, was disappointing. The confusing part is, that’s what intrigued me about the story, too. The dynamics, interactions, reactions, emotions. It was all fascinating and kept me glued to my eReader. Even as I write this, I’m still having trouble deciding how I want to rate it. I felt Tiffany deserved the guilt she felt when meeting the WAGs, for the part she played in their pain, but I also hated the malicious violation she endured. Really, this book has me torn up over my feelings. Overall, it was a good read. I was hooked, beginning to end. I think what I liked is how M.E. Carter made us see the situation from a different POV. I became surprisingly invested in a character I was determined to dislike. I actually can’t wait to read on, as I’m interested in seeing how the situation plays out between one of the married couples. Yes, this was a hard read, and some difficult issues to overcome, but I’m so glad I gave it a chance. ♡

    Whoa! So once I read Juked, I had to read the next book in the series. It can be read as a standalone, but having the background on some of the characters was a plus. When I started this story and found out that it was about Tiffany, a cleat-chaser, soccer groupie I was curious where this story would pan out. You see, we often read about the bad boys in books. The ones that womanize and seduce women. We don't usually read about a woman who does this to men. I noticed that some of the reviews were not good due to the fact that this story was about a "whore" or "slut". Why is it okay to read about men like that but not women? Needless to say, I was intrigued.Tiffany Wendel is an ex college soccer player turned sports producer at a local TV station. Tiffany is know within the soccer circle with a terrible reputation. She is known for things she has done with soccer players at parties. ME Carter did an amazing job depicting the things that actually go on at these parties of these players. Tiffany has done things that I can not even believe actually happen.She meets the new player, the rookie. Rowen Flanigan is an all around good guy and comes from soccer royalty. When Rowen meets Tiffany, he takes an interest in her and immediately wants to get to know her. In the process, he is shocked when he learns of her past and current lifestyle. He wants to be with her but can't compete with what she has done with his teammates. Rowan is still a virgin and wants to save himself for marriage. Once Tiffany gets to know Rowen, she finds herself wanting to change. She wants to change her ways and be him and him alone. Together, they go through lots of ups and downs. There is drama, emotions and broken hearts in the process. This romance is not your typical romance and ME Carter does an amazing job with the real, the messy and the love between these two characters.I never thought that I would find myself cheering on the 'slut'. But by the end of the story, I found myself wanting to help Tiffany and Rowen have their happy ending.This is a must read for it being sexy, surprising and all around different. I am hooked on your words ME Carter and I can't wait to read book 3, Goalie.5 Mind Blown Stars!!--Mel

    This is one of those weird books that you're not sure if you like it or hate it. .Rowen hands down made this book. He's so sweet and such a great guy that you were rooting for him to get the girl just because he deserves whatever he wants. He is why this book got 3 stars instead of two. Tiffany was a tough pill to swallow. Like some other readers, I almost gave up on the book because some of her actions made me sick to my stomach, i.e. knowingly sleeping with another woman's husband and BJ races. The first is unforgivable to me because where are your morals? That goes beyond sexual expression. There are clearly plenty of single guys willing to sleep with you, you don't need to troll on another woman's husband. The second, is downright gross. Where is your self-respect? Your self-worth? That's pretty out of character for a person who supposedly loves themselves. I'm all for books that try to break down the double-standard barriers because I firmly believe women aren't sluts for sleeping with a lot of people, but I draw the line at the aforementioned situations. Neither are acceptable. Ever. She is what I refer to as Crude Tiffany.Unlike C.T., I really liked Professional Tiffany. A lot. She was sweet, almost to a fault, funny, and charismatic. I felt awful for her when that crazy thing happened because, while I didn't like C.T., no one deserves that. I understand why Rowen fell for P.T. because she seemed like a really great person. I'm not sure how he came to that conclusion when he initially met C.T. so I think I would have liked more of a build-up. It felt a little unrealistic for someone like him to just automatically be attracted to someone who does what she was doing. Tiffany did redeem herself towards the end and I'm glad I pushed through. She had some come to jesus moments and realized that the things she was doing weren't so great. It's hard to say if I recommend this. The first half I don't, but the second half I do. I completely understand why people gave up and couldn't finish. M.E. Carter is a great writer and I'm excited to read Santo's book. He's such a jack ass so I'm curious to see how she writes his story.

    ME Carter knows her fan base well - you will either love or hate the story. Groupie is Tiffany's story - a producer for a sports news station in the day; groupie at night. Her character is a free spirit who loves to party with the Texas Mutiny and happens to enjoy sex. This includes sleeping around with most of the team members - single or married - in the name of having fun and building friendships. It was extremely difficult for me to like Tiffany. When marriage vows are broken and you knowingly sleep with another wife's husband, it becomes a problem for me. Don't get me wrong...I have read many books with cheating involved, however, this didn't apply in Tiffany's case. For Tiffany, I believe it wasn't about finding love...she was simply being an unpaid whore. I absolutely hated, hated, hated her character.Enter Rowan Flanigan, the new rookie on the team. One with a heart of gold and morals that will make any girl swoon. He ends up falling in love with this "smart, intelligent, and witty" Tiffany but has a hard time with her past (obviously). She does, however, realize in the end that she has hurt others by having these sexual affairs but it was too late for me. Until the very end, I still believe that Tiffany didn't deserve Rowan. He was too good, too pure for her. I'm sure these things (circle jerking, public sex, blow job races) do happen after sports games and there are many groupies happy to indulge. Personally, I read to escape the ugliness in the world and it was a hard read for me. What helped me continue reading Groupie was the reappearance of Daniel Zavaro (from Juked) - I fell in love with him more.Many of you may ask, if I hated Tiffany and the storyline so much, why the 3 stars? Because ME Carter is an amazing writer. Period. Groupie will not stop me from purchasing more of the author's books. I look forward to Santos and Mariana's story in the next series.

    Review of Groupie (Juked, #2) by M.E. CarterReview done for Hooked on Books & CherryOBlossoms Promotions4 out of 5 starsTiffany Wendel has it all: dream job, good looks, and lots of male friends. She loves sex and gets a lot with her male friends.She has never thought twice about hooking up with the guys on the Texas Mutiny soccer team. Even if they were married, she didn’t care because they were all just having fun.When the new Rookie Rowen Flannigan takes notice in her, she is shocked he isn’t interested in her for sex. That is all guys want from her.Rowen Flannigan is a little naive when it comes to sex. Sure he has done things but hasn’t gone all the way; he is saving that for marriage. When he meets Tiffany at a team party, he is intrigued. She is beautiful, smart and funny. He just didn’t expect her to be the team whore. Rowen is determined not to let that bother him. He can see past all that to see the wonderful person Tiffany really is.Unfortunately being reminded everyday that most of the team has slept with your girlfriend is a horrible thing to have to deal with.I enjoyed this book; it was very well written. I just couldn’t get on Tiffany’s fan club. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t like her very much. Rowen, however, is a saint. He is an amazing guy to be able to handle her past.The story was entertaining, fun, sexy, and thought provoking. It was interesting trying not to judge Tiffany for her actions. Society usually thinks it’s ok for a man to have a colorful sex life but not women. This gave us a look at how women are treated in the same circumstances. I guess the real issue I have with Tiffany is sleeping with the married men. Anything else is her choice.I recommend this book to read.

    Arc provided for an honest review.Groupieis the first book that I read by M.E Carter. When I read the blurb , I was straightaway curious to know what will happen to the "Groupie"Tiffany, what was her story... We all have met a girl like Tiffany in our life( or we could all relate to the character of Tiffany) , who enjoys life to the FULL. A girl who has no shame to say that she likes sex with no strings attached. In Groupie, Tiffany is the girl that hang out with the soccer team and there is hardly no guy that did not have fun with Tiffany. Her lifestyle was liberal. One day, Tiffany meets Rowen the "rookie" at a party and she could sense that he was different. He wanted to know her as a person, know where she was from, what was her job and more... he made her feel special. Will Rowen be able to cope with Tiffany's past? Is Tiffany ready to put her past behind her? I really enjoyed reading Groupie, for once the strong character was a woman- She was the " slut" but did not care to be judged until Rowen. In this book, M.E CArter shows in a very clever and truthful way how hard it is to be a woman,sometimes. In general, men would not be judged for everything that Tiff did but when the roles are reverse, it is a different ball game. The story is real and the characters sensitive, honest, sweet and sexy.“We all have. But those stupid things have helped shape who you are today. And I like who you are today. So don’t start losing all your confidence because one person is holding you responsible for the actions of two people. You weren’t the only one there.”

    5 Stars all the way!!This is the very first book I have read by M.E. Carter and if all her books are this fabulous I have been seriously missing out! Before I begin my review I have to say I will be buying the 1st book of this series ASAP!Tiffany and Rowen are amazing!The sweet, smart, witty groupie that just so happens to support the team by not only loving the sport of soccer but loving the sex games they play at the after parties, Tiffany.Rowan the rookie who is saving himself for marriage, head in only the game! Can Rowen make a change in Tiffany or is her whorish ways there to stay? Does Tiffany persuade Rowan into giving him what's he held near and dear to him? The events in the book had me laughing in the beginning and asking myself why someone would write a book like this. And then I got deeper into the story and understood exactly why.There is truly an amazing story in these pages even if the first part is the dirty side of things. The beauty in saving yourself is very high up on Rowen's list and he intends on keeping it in tack until he finds his wife? How in the world would that quality be in Tiffany?Please please please give this amazing love story a chance even though all of it isn't Rose's and rainbows it is truly beautiful!!Voluntarily read and reviewed this book for my honest opinion!*Hot Box Reviews*

    At first I was a little leary about this book. It's pretty hardcore, anything you think happens with a groupie is mentioned in this book. But M.E. Carter goes beyond the surface of this stereo type and introduces us to the main character and gives us a completely different view of this particular "groupie"... Then throw in a HUGE surprise between the two main characters. Talk about a crazy role reversal storyline.. You have to read this book. The characters and writing are superb!

    This is a fun book about soccer and the groupies. Will the Rookie and the Groupie get together and be able to put her past behind them and have a happy life together? Or will her past prevent a HEA? Read it and find out.. Also Daniel and Quincy continue on in this story as well..
