Perfection
Going for the Goal (The Perfect Play Series Book 3) - Sara Rider

This is book # 3 in the Perfect Play series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For your enjoyment, and to better understand the series I recommend reading in order.

 

Jillian & Nick have quite the past.  Now, as he begs her to be his agent, she does not think it is wise to mix business with pleasure.  Her reputation and future are at risk.

 

Nick has waited almost a decade to be with his dream woman.  Now, her needs her for more than just the physical.  He needs her to save his career.

 

This was such a heartwarming and HOT book to read.  I found myself with laughter and tears.  I am hoping the series continues, since it is so good.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

The Goal
The Goal - Elle Kennedy He de reconocer que al principio me costó un poco entrar en la historia. Creo que fue por el hecho de que no estaba convencida con Sabrina, tenía mis dudas sobre el personaje y eso se mostró en mi disposición cuando empecé el libro.
Pero Elle Kennedy ha vuelto a sorprenderme y, superadas mis dudas iniciales, ha conseguido meterme de lleno en la vida de Sabrina y Tucker.

He barajado durante toda la lectura si darle 4 ó 5 estrellas (duda inexistente en sus predecesoras que fueron de cabeza al podio ganador) decidiéndome por la puntuación máxima porque el desarrollo de la historia lo ha merecido. A partir de la mitad del libro estaba más que enamorada de los protagonistas y cualquier duda que hubiera podido tener se disipó.

Tucker era el gran desconocido y ha sido una grata sorpresa descubrir al personaje a medida que avanzaba el libro: bueno, atento, "hot as hell" y tan divertido como el resto de sus amigos.

Me he leído los cuatro libros seguidos, por lo que estaba totalmente inmersa en la historia y al acabar me ha dado muchísima pena. Ahora sólo me queda esperar al spin off, aunque no sé si conseguirá llenarme tanto como Garrett, Logan, Dean y Tucker.

The Goal
The Goal - Elle Kennedy I'm going with 3 stars for this one.

In short: Well written, loved Tucker, didn't hate Sabrina. A bit too much back and forth and there was a long time where nothing really happens. I liked seeing all the other characters again, although I've forgotten quite a lot from the other books.
I'm not a huge fan of this type of storyline, so it could just be me. I felt bad for Tucker sometimes and felt like hitting sabrine with a smelly old fish at other times. I alsp missed some of the banter that I loved in the other books.
But it's not a bad book and Elle Kennedy knows how to write. If you liked the other books, give this one a try :)

I'm looking forward to the spin off. I think it's going to be about Fitzy?

The Goal (Off-Campus #4) by Elle Kennedy
The Goal - Elle Kennedy

Elle Kennedy’s THE GOAL is an amazing addition to the Off-Campus Series. Sabrina James has her five-year plan laid out, and it does not include hockey players. Then she meets hockey forward John Tucker, who has every intention of being part of her future. THE GOAL takes place during the same time frame as the previous book, THE SCORE. This new adult contemporary sports romance takes place at Briar University and Massachusetts.

 

I like Sabrina. She is an intelligent and strong individual. Her home life is not the best, and she is set out to do everything in her power to improve her life. Her step father, Ray, is a piece of work. That man is pure slime. I like her two best friends: Carin and Hope. I’m glad she has them. I appreciated that she has Professor Gibson on her side. Sabrina comes off as cold to others, but it is extremely understandable why. She is a good person that has been dealt a difficult hand. She has to work hard for everything in an environment where most people have things handed to them.

 

Tucker is a great guy. He is honest, calm, confident, patient, and persistent. He is a great roommate because he takes care of everyone. He is a good son. He is the perfect guy for Sabrina; he mostly understands her, although he does make a few mistakes.

 

Sabrina and Dean Di Laurentis (book 3) are nemesis. Since Dean is one of Tucker’s best friends and roommate, this is a bit of an issue, as a result, they hide their relationship from Tucker’s friends.

 

The scenes with Beau Maxwell were emotional from the start since I knew what was going to happen from the previous book. It was heartbreaking to read others’ perspectives.

 

Once again, Elle Kennedy, does a fantastic job with both her character development and plot. The novel is well written. I like that this story continues past graduation. Just like real life there are a lot of ups and downs. The characters grow tremendously and endure a lot. THE GOAL is a believable a heartfelt story that made me experience just about every emotion possible. Off-Campus is an amazing series that I highly recommend.
