Review for The Goal by Elle Kennedy

Title: The Goal
Series: Off-Campus #4
Author: Elle Kennedy
Published: September 26, 2016


New York Times bestseller Elle Kennedy brings you a sexy new Off-Campus novel that can be read as a standalone...

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. One 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.

Review: 5 STARS!!

I have been anxiously awaiting Tucker & Sabrina's book since the ending of The Goal and now that it is here, I literally cannot stop reading it!! I was nervous at first, because it was Sabrina and with how Dean talked of her, I wasn't really enthusiastic, but thank goodness Elle Kennedy changed my mind and now Sabrina is one of my favorite female characters!!

Sabrina James is hard working, dedicated, smart, blunt, sarcastic and so unbelievably sweet. When she cares for someone, she is always there for them and really shows her more softer and sweeter side than she does with everyone else. Woman strive to be as goal orientated as Sabrina James. I loved her dedication to her studies and how hard she really worked to get out of a bad situation and give herself a better life. When Tucker comes into her life, she tries to keep him separate from her home life and she tries to push him away, but no woman can resist his southern charm, not even tough shelled Sabrina.

Tucker is the ULTIMATE southern boy and charmer. He swooned me and most likely every other woman who has read this book. He is so generous, nice, caring, but man is he a dirty talker and such an alpha!! When he wants something, he doesn't stop until he gets it and he wants Sabrina. When they both land in unknown territory, Tucker is there for Sabrina every step of the way. He never leaves her and lets her down. His friendships with Garrett, Logan & Dean is more like a brotherhood and I loved how they were all there for each other whenever someone needed them to be. Tucker is one of my favorite male characters that Elle Kenney has ever written!!

The passion between Tucker & Sabrina is off the charts sexy and their connection is strong right from the beginning, but it just keeps growing stronger and stronger throughout the book. The way Tucker got under Sabrina's skin had me laughing, because Sabrina would try to stay strong. I really felt bad for what Sabrina had to deal with at home, but I think that aided in her strength. Elle Kennedy really knows how to write a mesmerizing and captivating story line with characters that will just stay in your heart for a long time. I hope that this isn't the end of this amazing series and I am looking forward to what Elle Kennedy comes out with next!!

The Off-Campus Series

The Deal: Book 1

She's about to make a deal with the college bad boy...

Hannah Wells has finally found someone who turns her on. But while she might be confident in every other area of her life, she's carting around a full set of baggage when it comes to sex and seduction. If she wants to get her crush's attention, she'll have to step out of her comfort zone and make him take notice...even if it means tutoring the annoying, childish, cocky captain of the hockey team in exchange for a pretend date.

...and it's going to be oh so good

All Garrett Graham has ever wanted is to play professional hockey after graduation, but his plummeting GPA is threatening everything he's worked so hard for. If helping a sarcastic brunette make another guy jealous will help him secure his position on the team, he's all for it. But when one unexpected kiss leads to the wildest sex of both their lives, it doesn't take long for Garrett to realize that pretend isn't going to cut it. Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him.

The Mistake: Book 2

He's a player in more ways than one...

College junior John Logan can get any girl he wants. For this hockey star, life is a parade of parties and hook-ups, but behind his killer grins and easygoing charm, he hides growing despair about the dead-end road he'll be forced to walk after graduation. A sexy encounter with freshman Grace Ivers is just the distraction he needs, but when a thoughtless mistake pushes her away, Logan plans to spend his final year proving to her that he's worth a second chance.

Now he's going to need to up his game...

After a less than stellar freshman year, Grace is back at Briar University, older, wiser, and so over the arrogant hockey player she nearly handed her V-card to. She's not a charity case, and she's not the quiet butterfly she was when they first hooked up. If Logan expects her to roll over and beg like all his other puck bunnies, he can think again. He wants her back? He'll have to work for it. This time around, she'll be the one in the driver's seat...and she plans on driving him wild.


The Score: Book 3

He knows how to score, on and off the ice

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn't have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she's nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won't include the king of one-night stands.

It'll take more than flashy moves to win her over

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls...he's a ladies ma, all right, and he's yet to meet a woman who's immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world-and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It's not over until he says it's over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it's time to stop focusing on scoring...and shoot for love.
