Things I Can't Forget Book Review
Things I Can't Forget - Miranda Kenneally

This series seems to be a hit or miss for me. It all depends on whether or not I like the characters. Things I Can't Forget was definitely a miss on my end. Its a quick read but I'm not a fan of how Kenneally handled religion.

 

Kate is the perfect Christian daughter that doesn't get into trouble. That is until she buys a pregnancy test for her best friend. Everything changes from that point. Camp is different this summer since Emily isn't there with her.  Then there's the boy from her childhood and Kate has to wonder how far she'll go against her religion...

 

Kate was obnoxious to me, and I really disliked the negative views on Christianity, it'd be nice to have a YA that sheds a positive light on religion and that its okay to have these values.

 

Other than that the plot as a whole was bland and very forgettable. Probably my least favorite of this series so far.

Jordan Woods isn't just surrounded by hot guys, though–she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys and that's just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university.

Defending Taylor Book Review
Defending Taylor (Hundred Oaks) - Miranda Kenneally

I've only read a few others in this series, but this is definitely my favorite of them. I just loved the story line and especially the characters. Kennelly did a great job with the relationships in this one, from the boyfriend to the siblings to the parents.

 

Taylor had everything going for her, an excellent private school, set for Yale, a 4.2 GPA and captain of the soccer team. Until she gets kicked out and is sent to Hundred Acres,  a drug scandal that might ruin her father's re-election. Being stressed about school and wanting her parent's approval, Taylor has to wonder if she was even happy in the first place?

 

Defending Taylor did a great job with showing teens that it is important to have fun, relax a bit and enjoy being a teen. Yes school is important but its not everything. Be who you want to be.

 

Taylor is a great character, I'd say my one dislike is that I found it a bit disbelieving that she would really go THAT far to hide the secret she did...I know I wouldn't.

 

Fun characters and a quick read. Definitely interested in the rest of the series now.

Stealing Parker Book Review
Stealing Parker - Miranda Kenneally

Overall opinion: I liked the first one a LOT more. This was a super quick read, I read it in a few hours this morning. I just did NOT like Parker at all. I found her obnoxious and naive. Yea, she's young, but ugh. 

 

Parker has been known for "hanging out with the guys." And recently after what happened with her mom and then with the softball team she's been set to help coach the boy's baseball team. And that's when Coach Brian comes along, and he's dead sexy and she can't help but drool over him and hope for more. 

 

I don't mind the "teacher/student" relationship in this. I just wish Parker was a bit smarter than Kennelly made her out to be. The constant remarks about being a slut were tiring. The only character I really enjoyed was Drew, the best friend. 

 

Not my normal genre, but enjoy the girls playing sports. But this one was more about the girl being all over the boy than the sports. Could have been better.

Catching Jordan Book Review
Catching Jordan - Miranda Kenneally

I really loved the sports aspect of this book. A girl playing football as a QB in her high school team and even trying to do so in college. Something I really want more of. The romance however, was a bit annoying and predictable. 

 

Jordan is the son of the famous Quarterback Donovan Woods. But he doesn't want his own daughter to be Quarterback of her high school football team. And its senior year with scouts coming to check her out. But then Ty comes in. A very good QB from another school. She has to do anything she can to prove herself worthy of staying on the team. 

 

I'm definitely going to read more in this series. I just hope there is less of the love triangle and more of the sports and girls being pretty kick a**.
