Winner of the Colorado Romance Writers New Adult category in 2016
Let the games begin…
Ryan Rose and her fellow Spartans are finalists in a high-profile entrepreneurial competition. They’re competing for life-changing money and for their futures. They have a solid plan to win. All they need to do is trounce the competition: rich frat boys from an archrival university. Easy, right?
Jett Trebuchet’s first mistake was not realizing that Ryan and her friends were the competition. His second was expressing his unabashed confidence in his team’s ability to win. After all, everyone knows the only thing MSU does better than U of M is produce beautiful, easy women…oh, and he almost forgot to say “dumb.” And boy, does his team pay for that one.
As each side tries to game the other, something else seems to be getting in the way—attraction. Now Ryan and Jett must keep their teams from getting distracted by the opposite sex…and each other. All is not fair in love and war when it comes to winning this game.
Finally my first 4 Star for 2015! It was really great. I had an amazing time reading it and i absolutely reccomend it, for anyone who wants to read a nicely written, compelling and layered book but funny nonetheless..
So, there is an important entrepreneurial competition and the finalists are 2 am... ...more
I've said this at least two or three times so far, but I gotta say it again. This was so good! If only every NA novel was this great...
My only remark is that Jett was apologizing all the damn time. It's an admirable trait many lack, to apologize when they've done wrong and I'm not complaining abo... ...more
It's been a long time coming, nothing intentional, but the REVIEW will up very soon. Will provide a link to my blog as well..
I received this from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review. This was really great. This takes friendly competition to a whole new level. It was a great read. The story was awesome and I loved the book so much. I cried and laughed at all the antics that the author goes through. If... ...more
To say this review has been a long time coming, would be an overstatement. I've been sitting on it like an egg that I'm waiting to hatch! Not intentionally, mind you, I've just wanted to find the right words. There is a bit of backstory to this review, and I'll try to keep that brief.
I read the s... ...more
(I got this book for review)
When I got this book I wouldnt have thought Id love it so much.
The blurb sounded interesting but I wouldnt have guessed how good the plot was.
I couldnt stop reading and got sucked right into the story. Plus the writing was pretty awesome and had a good flow.
It's Team Ryan vs Team Jett as two collage trios battle for a contract with a leading fortune 500 company.
As the two groups find attraction among one another, it is a struggle to remember they are there for work and not play.
Will the girls live up to the dumb and easy stereotype, or will they o... ...more
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BOOK!
This one is a NA with the smarts! Two groups of three college student each are competing for a chance to work and intership in a big company what would sky-rocket their carriers. A lot of interesting topics and tasks were covered here, I love that the author took the time... ...more

Team Ryan, 3 girls, must face team Jett, 3 boys, during a competition in New York. The stakes are high because the gain is a job for each member of the winning team as well as money. Their first meeting in the car that leads them to the airport is very funny and I was completely fo... ...more
For some reason, I was a little weary going into this book. Whenever it's a competition between guys and gals, well let's just say I get a little competitive. Usually the guys team are made up of a bunch of jerk holes who undermine the girls and the girls make fools of themselves trying to prove... ...more
I definitely picked up this book because of the University of Michigan/MSU rivalry aspect of the story (Go Blue), but I finished it because it was a great story.
I can't say that I was all swoons and smiles throughout the book because Jett made a lot of stupid choices and managed to make me mad m... ...more

I really enjoyed Pretty Smart Girls! When I first started reading it I figured it would be pretty stereotypical, but it was anything but that! I loved the characters individually, and how well they meshed together as a gr... ...more
Pretty Smart Girls Lace Up was a highly entertaining read from the beginning. Shae Ross's New Adult novel centres around Ryan and her team of girls going toe to toe with Jett's team of boys in an entrepreneurial competition where the stakes are high and both teams of budding professionals are det... ...more
I know this isn't what authors want to hear, but this is one of the cutest books I have read. Sorry, I said cute. I am not sure how else to describe it in one word!
This is one of those books where you aren't sure what exactly to expect. All is fair in business and war.... Or is business, war?
I b... ...more

I had A LOT of fun reading this book. From the beginning, it was sassy and hilarious and sexy and FUN! I cant even begin to tell you how amusing some of the shenanigans these kids into! So we have a competition between t... ...more
I received my advance review copy of Pretty Smart Girls Lace Up a few weeks ago, but I just had my first opportunity to open it up and take a look at what was inside over this weekend. Once again, author Shae Ross did not disappoint! The romance in this novel is steamy, but allows the reader enou... ...more
Inter-collegiate rivalry tackled with the savviness of 'The Apprentice', with some romance thrown in for added spice.
This was an incredibly fun read and I was surprised to find myself liking Jett more and more as the story went on, most probably because he doesn't conform to the typical stereoty... ...more
First off I would like to start off by thanking the author Shae Ross for sending me an ARC of this book! In return I will give my honest review.
This was such a cute and well written story. The main couple in this story was Ryan and Jett but I felt like all 3 couples were. I knew them... ...more
Jett he knows how way around the rules, "I'm forbidden from asking you out while the competition is going on, but the week is coming to a close." He's smiling at me as if he's about to hand me a trophy. "I want to take you out after the competition ends." He's a generous man as well, "hey, if we... ...more
I read this book in one sitting! Stayed up till 5:30 AM to finish it, and it was worth it. It is one of the first NA novels that I enjoyed fully. The characters got to actually know each other and go through a lot before falling in love.
The story was fun to read with some serious moments, but al... ...more
●ARC received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review●
Both Jett and Ryan are on opposing teams competing to win a 100k employment contract. Both endured losses in their lives and, even though they're very competitive, they put this aside long enough to fall in love. It is an endearing stor... ...more

The story has a nice flow to it. I enjoyed the rivalry and banter between the two teams. It's a fun r... ...more
Not typically my go-to genre, however once I got into the book it became a really fun read. Love ALL of the female characters in the book, they're all so relatable. Shae Ross does a fabulous job of describing each character thoroughly and immediately. I was able to have a visual of all the player... ...more
One of my first experiences with NA fiction, and I have to say, I'm hooked! Pretty Smart Girls by Shae Ross is a fun, flirty read that I just couldn't seem to put down. As a Michigan girl, I was definitely laughing out loud at a lot of banter throughout the story!
Anyone who's looking for their n... ...more
