✱✱Book Review✱✱ A Jock for Matthew: Sanderson Brothers Book 4 by Declan Rhodes


Brainy nerd Matthew, the youngest of four brothers in the Sanderson clan, feels invisible in a family of local celebrities. Known only as "the tall, skinny one," Matthew signs on to help conduct a research project led by a tyrannical, but well-known, professor as a short track to fame and fortune in his field.

Soon, Matthew meets test-subject Shawn Trent, a handsome, muscular, blond college football offensive lineman. Shawn is an English literature major fond of quoting Walt Whitman to his teammates. He's all muscle laced with sensitive smarts, and he's in the closet--for now.

A Jock for Matthew is a 54,000-word first-time gay romance with strong family relationship, jock-nerd, and opposites attract themes. This is the fourth book in the Sanderson Brothers series.

All of the books can be read as standalone stories, but they are best read as a continuing series about the Sanderson family including all four brothers as characters in each novel.


Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Another engaging, sweet and sexy romance in the Sanderson Brothers series. Matthew and Shawn are absolutely adorable together, and both of them are just so lovable that you can't help but fall right into this romance. This one is kind of an opposites attract story but kind of not. Yes, one's a jock and one's a 'brainy nerd,' but beyond the obvious, these two do have some things in common, including some really good chemistry. Of course, the road isn't without some bumps, but the angst level is pretty low overall. The big thing this couple needs to get through would have bothered me in most cases, but Declan Rhodes puts a different spin on it, and the characters' actions fit the circumstances. Like the blurb says, the Sanderson Brothers books can be read as standalones, but there are so many wonderful characters in this series, and once you've met a few, you'll want to know them all. I don't know if there's anything else planned for this series, but I'd sure like to see a couple of Sanderson adjacent characters get their HEAs.
