ARC Review: Jock Royal – Sara Ney (Jock Hard #4)

Rating: 5 out of 5.



Ashley Dryden-Jones is the best rugby player on the field—when I take a dare I instantly regret, I had no way of knowing he was a gentleman. An athlete. British with no plans to stay in the States.

He makes me forget myself, bruises, 5 o’clock shadow, accent and all.

He makes me forget I cannot crawl into bed with him at night—or get drunk and throw caution to the wind for once in my overly cautious life.

Because he’s my new roommate.


When I win a trip to Vegas I need a plus one; he’s the strapping, strong and responsible choice. Besides—I’ve never been anywhere and he has.

He is the best friend I didn’t know I needed.

Ashley is one of the good ones—but I’m about to find out how bad this good boy can be.


Sara Ney will be forever one of my favourite authors. She is a master at writing romantic comedies and sports romances, and Jock Royal just further proves it.

Jock Royal is the fourth book in the Jock Hard series but can be read as a standalone. It centers around recent senior transfer student (Georgia) and super sexy, international student and rugby player (Ashley). Their meet-cute was equally awkward and hilarious, and I enjoyed getting the dual POV. From there, they begin a wonderfully genuine friendship that progresses into roommates, and more.

The banter in this book is phenomenal and had me laughing out loud many times. The humour is classic Ney and I really need to go back and re-read her other books again. I don’t want to give too much away but what I really enjoyed in Jock Royal was the fun twist to a pretty classic trope. It gave the story that little extra ‘will they, won’t they’ that kept me on my toes.

Overall, I’d highly recommend this book to everyone. It gave me all the happiness, laughs and warm fuzzies that I’d expect from a Ney novel and left me wanting more. 5 stars!
