When Bethany Howard meets international soccer star Jenson Abbot at a bar one night she never expects it will change her life forever. University classes and late nights spent studying fill her hours, but Jenson is determined to show her what she's been missing. She thinks it's only a one night stand, but Bethany is anything but a fling to Jenson. He's been waiting for someone to make him feel the way she does, her sharp tongue and delicious curves undoing him from the beginning.
Jenson is hellbent on proving he is the man for her, the only man that can make her eyes light up when she laughs and her body sing beneath his hands. But can Jenson convince Bethany that there's more to him than meets the eye? Or will his flirty grin and dogged persistence put her off men forever? Jenson is determined to find out, because he's got one last play tucked in his pocket, The Panty Play.

I thought this was one of cutest books I've ever read. I loved the characters and the story. I can't say that I've ever been a sports fan or a soccer fan, but after reading "Bending Bethany" it's safe to say that I am.
My only complaints that I have with the book were: 1). Bethany kept running from the hero. She kept saying she didn't have time with all of her school work. I could see that but I still didn't like it. And with the book already being so short, it felt like there wasn't really much of them in the book together. 2). The book was short. I wished it would have been longer.
Overall, I really did enjoy it. I just wished it would have been longer and that Bethany wouldn't have ran from the hero. But I still enjoyed it.
I think if your a fan of Alexa Riley, Rochelle Paige and Fiona Davenport then Aria Cole would most definitely be another great author to check out.
I tore the sheet off me and sat up in bed, startled to find I was wearing nothing but my birthday suit. Here I was in all my naked glory. I looked around for my clothing. To my horror, I saw my dress was on the floor in multiple pieces. Jenson had apparently shredded it. In a frantic panic, I found a large New England Red Bulls jersey and tossed it over my head. I couldn’t wear just this jersey, even though it was longer than that flimsy fabric I was wearing last night.
I needed to get out of there. I quickly went to the bathroom to make sure I didn’t look like a morning after nightmare. I found a new toothbrush tucked in a drawer.
I finished my teeth and ran a brush through my hair, thinking it looked especially wild this morning. I grabbed a lock and pulled it across my nose, taking a whiff and expecting to find the scent of stale cigarette smoke.
Instead, I was hit with a wave of heady arousal.
Notes of leather and spice filled my nostrils. Ice-blue eyes. A reckless mop of dark hair.
“What did I do?” I squeaked before tracing my lips with my fingertips, feeling slightly bruised from too much kissing. I didn't think I'd had that much to drink, but apparently the shots and the music and everything about him had gone to my head. Snapshots of last night flooded me. I didn't do things like this, impersonal sex was never on my agenda, what was I thinking?
I ran out of there like a bat out of hell, with nothing on but a soccer jersey.
Damn. Shit. Fuck.
