Synopsis :
Most high school sports teams have rivalries with other schools. At Hamilton High, it's a civil war: the football team versus the soccer team. And for her part, Lissa is sick of it. Her quarterback boyfriend, Randy, is always ditching her to go pick a fight with the soccer team or to prank their locker room. And on three separate occasions Randy's car has been eggeed while he and LIsa were inside, making out. She is done competing with a bunch of sweaty boys for her own boyfriend's attention. 

Then Lissa decides to end the rivalry once and for all : She and the other player's girlfriends go on a hookup strike. The boys won't get any action from them until the football and soccer teams make peace. What they don't count on is a new sort of rivalry : an impossible girls-againts-boys showdown that hinges on who will cave to their libidos first.But what Lissa never sees coming is her own sexual tension with the leader of the boys,Cash Sterling.

Review :
What do you feel when your boyfriend prefer to hang out with his soccer team than sitting with you and have a conversation? I mean, he is really into you, he loves you, loves your family, and even close to your dad and brother. But when it comes to his soccer team, it seems like all of a sudden he forgets that you are there. That's Randy and Lisa's relationship that we are talking about. And I guess it's not only her but maybe all women would feel the same thing. Pissed off.

They've been together about 9 months ago. and Lisa loves him the way her family love him. He's cute, sexy and hot. But there will always be a time when they are dating, and he got a phone call from his friends, he would just leave and that's all, no rejection. There was a time when they were in Randy's car and someone egged his windshield and he immediately went to chase the guy without even thinking about Lisa's safety. It wasn't the first time he did it,though.

That's all happened because of the stupid rivalry between him and his soccer team with the football team. Unlike the other schools who have rivalries with other schools, Hamilton High has two teams which are soccer team and football team. But for more than ten years, those teams never got along and even fought each other. The battle won't ever end and Lisa thought she has an idea to put a stop to it.

So, with the help of Lisa's best friend, Chloe, they summoned several girlfriends from both football and soccer players and asked their participation on her plan to stop the battle which is go on a sex strike!

I can't tell you whether the plan succeed or not, but I think it doesn't matter, because since they committed not to have sex with their couples and even took an oath for it, they have become more close to each other. And I think it's such a good idea because if our boyfriends can't hold the no-sex thing, then they don't deserve our attention at all, but if they can handle it, everything is just fine then :)
If the plan works, their relationship goes stronger and the war between both teams will be end soon.
So, kill two birds with one stone,right? =D

"You amaze me,Lissa Daniels. Most girls would cave as soon as I gave the puppy-dog look with these amazing eyes."

"Sorry. I like boys. Not dogs. You should've dated a different girl if you wanted someone to bend to your will."

However, Randy isn't the only boy who likes her. As a matter of fact, Cash Sterling is kinda have a feeling for her, and surprisingly the feeling is mutual =DD But the problem is Cash is the soccer player and a rival for Randy. Who's gonna win her heart then? ^-^

"I couldn't control myself with Cash, I never could, and it terrified me."
