Book Review:The Goal by Elle Kennedy

September 26, 2016


She’s good at achieving her goals…

College senior Sabrina James has her whole future planned out: graduate from college, kick butt in law school, and land a high-paying job at a cutthroat firm. Her path to escaping her shameful past certainly doesn’t include a gorgeous hockey player who believes in love at first sight. One night of sizzling heat and surprising tenderness is all she’s willing to give John Tucker, but sometimes, one night is all it takes for your entire life to change.

But the game just got a whole lot more complicated

Tucker believes being a team player is as important as being the star. On the ice, he’s fine staying out of the spotlight, but when it comes to becoming a daddy at the age of twenty-two, he refuses to be a bench warmer. It doesn’t hurt that the soon-to-be mother of his child is beautiful, whip-smart, and keeps him on his toes. The problem is, Sabrina’s heart is locked up tight, and the fiery brunette is too stubborn to accept his help. If he wants a life with the woman of his dreams, he’ll have to convince her that some goals can only be made with an assist.

The "Off Campus" series has been one of my favorites of all time and just when I think the leading men couldn't get any better, Elle goes and give me John Tucker. It's not really fair you know, how are we suppose to choose between Garrett, Logan, Dean, and now John? You.Cant! Tucker took southern gentleman to a whole new meaning and ladies let me tell you, he was absolute perfection. 

Sabrina is determined to make something out of her life. Growing up poor and having her nana raise her wasn't aways easy but the one thing she took pride in was knowing that she's smart and she's going to be the best damn lawyer. All the other things are just a temporary bump in the road and she'll get over them one way or another. 

Being known as an ice queen and for her occasional hook ups, Sabrina has no time for being in a relationship. But when she meets the sexy ,John Tucker, he just might be the one to wear her down.

John Tucker has always loved being a hockey player but going proffesional is not his goal. He wants to to own his own business and settle down with the right girl. Having gone through his fair share of women while being the perfect charmer, Tucker is at point in his life where he he wants nothing more than to reach his goal. But little does he know that the infamous Sabrina is about to change his life . 

If I haven't said it before I'll say it again. I FREAKING LOVED TUCKER! He was the epitome of a book boyfriend with his charm, dirty talking mouth, and being really sweet with everything. I'll admit that it took me a while to get use to Sabrina because that girl really tested my patience. I think it took her too long to come to her senses, but what I really liked that she was a hard worker and her determination to have a good life was very admirable. 

And you know what else I loved? Seeing the whole gang back together and getting a glimpse into their future was the best thing ever and I really hope we get at least one more book out of this. If you've been folllowing these characters from the very begining, you do not want to miss out on this one.
