The Goal 

The Goal (Off-Campus, 4) by Elle Kennedy.

This is Tucker and Sabrina’s book, you’ve met them in the other books.

It’s been an instahooked with this one. I was waiting for it, but I forgot last minute, thank god I read it in recommendations in a book group.

There are like 3 parts in the book. The first one is more lust-college, the second shows internal problems of and between them and the third one is the final struggles they have to face. If you’ve read the anterior book (The Score) you’ll know there’s a big event happening. Well that’s just part of the drama, though there’s not real big drama. The characters are so not what I think they would be. He’s a perfect gentleman with a cocky side. She’s focus and intelligent. They both make a great team together but don’t quite see it.

I feel silly and weak and I don’t like it. I should be immune to this. I mean, he’s just a guy. I’ve slept with lots of guys before and I’m sure there’ll be many in the future. So why am I all weak-kneed and fluttery around this one?

The book is about how can you face things that life puts you through better when you have someone with you, and someone to fight for.

I’ve read The Mistake and The Score (2&3, not the first one, I’m weird like that) and these books just have something, it’s so sad that this is the last one, though it’s gonna be an spin-off (maybe about Fitzy, I think). I could totally re-read it a few times. Totally recommend it. My fav is The Score, I fell in love with Dean, but the first one to aattract me was Logan, that’s why I started with the second in the series, although there’s something about Garret and Hannah that doesn’t appeal me (though I think I’ll read it soon).

Warning: there’s a really gross character (from his very first scene) but the book is worth it, so.

BEFORE ANYONE ELSE

The Hashtag Series #8

Happily-ever-after.

That’s what happens when you get married.

Right?

Turns out sparkly rings, cake and a fantastic wedding do not automatically grant you that, not even when it’s all you truly want.

I’m even starting to doubt the bottomless, unconditional love I share with the man I married will be enough.

I can’t have happily ever after, know why?

Because I can’t give Romeo what he truly wants. I’ve tried. So hard. I won’t be happy unless he is and something is missing. Someone.

Paparazzi are in my face. The flashing cameras and prying eyes are everywhere. My secret is getting harder to hide, and I know the second the scoop is dished the grip I have on the fraying rope of that happily ever after will snap right in my face.

In our face.

I can’t let that happen. No matter what.

Because with or without a happy ending, Romeo comes Before Anyone Else.

The Hard Count

Title: The Hard Count
Author: Ginger Scott
Release date: July 15, 2016

The Hard Count is one of those books that you have to re-read after finishing them. Right away. This book left me in what I think it’s called ‘book drunk state’, I don’t know. It’s the feeling of not being able to read anything else because you haven’t gotten over this one special book. 

The main characters are so special and something different. Reagan is a strong and independent girl, a loner with a love for film. She comes from a good family, lives in a good neighborhood and her family is prestigious, but she knows that there’s more to life than that. Nico is a good boy from a bad neighborhood, he’s intelligent and never forgets his values. He has some special abilities and though he has seen some bad things growing up he doesn’t let them get in his way. 

They built a bond so beautiful and I love that even though it seems they’re so different they’re more alike. They both grow together, and I love to watch them together. 

It’s written from Reagan’s point of view but there’s a few chapters from Nico’s perspective that show us his past. I found them so mature and their romance doesn’t take up the entire book because they know there are more things in life. Also how they develop. I don’t know, I just think that I see myself in both of them, because I don’t usually like both characters.

Ginger Scott has rapidly become one of my fave authors, she sure can write some good books that gets to you. In this book may not be a lot of drama but it gets you all the same. You won’t stop reading once you’ve started it.

Nico Medina’s world is eleven miles away from mine. During the day, it’s a place where doors are open—where homes are lived in, and neighbors love. But when the sun sets, it becomes a place where young boys are afraid, where eyes watch from idling cars that hide in the shadows and wicked smoke flows from pipes.
West End is the kind of place that people survive. It buries them—one at a time, one way or another. And when Nico was a little boy, his mom always told him to run.
I’m Reagan Prescott—coach’s daughter, sister to the prodigal son, daughter in the perfect family.
Life on top.
Lies.
My world is the ugly one. Private school politics and one of the best high school football programs in the country can break even the toughest souls. Our darkness plays out in whispers and rumors, and money and status trump all. I would know—I’ve watched it kill my family slowly, strangling us for years.
In our twisted world, a boy from West End is the only shining light.
Quarterback.
Hero.
Heart.
Good.
I hated him before I needed him.
I fell for him fast.
I loved him when it was almost too late.
When two ugly worlds collide, even the strongest fall. But my world…it hasn’t met the boy from West End.

French Fries With A Side Of Guys

 


French Fries With A Side of Guys
Rebekah L. Purdy
Published by: Swoon Romance
Publication date: September 14th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

Payton Carter is one of six kids (all of which are named after famous football players), not to mention the only girl in the Carter household. With this much testosterone and no mother, it’s no wonder she’s absolutely clueless when it comes to makeup, dances, and talking to guys she’s crushing on. And now she’s about ready to start her freshman year of high school, which is nerve wrenching enough, but when she ends up running into her crush, Chance Montgomery, at her dad’s sports restaurant, she finds out that the quarterback for their rival team is moving to Aller Falls. This is nothing short of fate.

Payton realizes she has to find a way to impress Chance and get him to ask her out or at least know she’s interested in him—preferably without dropping a plateful of fries on his head, like she did last time. After taking her two oldest brothers’ advice, she decides to go out for the freshman football team, figuring that between practices and games she and her crush will surely be able to talk. And maybe talking will lead to something more permanent or at least to a first kiss. Only this plan backfires in ways she never imagined, when she beats Chance Montgomery out of the starting quarterback position. Now not only does she make him the laughing stock of the team, but also has to figure out how to avoid the snotty cheerleaders, a traitor best friend, not to mention winning games for her team. Too bad this is just the beginning of her freshman year.
