Review: The Goal

Title: The Goal

Author: Elle Kennedy

Date of Publication: September 26th, 2016

Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Review:

As soon as Tucker lays eyes on Sabrina James he knows that he wants her, and as soon as Sabrina lays her eyes on Tucker she knows he will be good for one hook-up because that is all she does. Sabrina is only focused on law school, but when Tucker enters her life things become a little more complicated.

I have read all three previous books in the series which you don’t have to read to read this one, but I highly recommend it. I thought the last book was just okay, but I really liked the first two because there were a lot of hilarious moments. This one felt different, but not in a bad way even though The Deal is still my favorite.

The Goal felt a little more serious with the pregnancy sitution, but it still had plenty of swoon and cute moments. There were still some pretty funny moments especially the teddy bear and Logan scene! Tucker has been my favorite since book one with all his cooking skills, and he did not let me down here. He was cute and sweet and never pushed Sabrina into doing or not doing something.

I really liked Sabrina as well but still felt she should have told Tucker how she felt earlier on in the book, but I get that she hasn’t had the best life especially with her creepy step dad always making ridiculous comments. I liked that she was determined to have a better life, and she worked two jobs to help get there. Even when obstacles got in the way she still is staying on her career path.

I wish that there would have been more friendship development at first like how it was between Garrett and Hannah, but the romance still felt very real, and Elle never lets anyone down with the steamy romance scenes she writes. Overall a good read and can’t wait to read what Elle writes next.

Review: Broken Prince

Title: Broken Prince

Author: Erin Watt

Date of Publication: July 25, 2016

Broken

Goodreads Summary:

From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself.

Reed Royal has it all—looks, status, money. The girls at his elite prep school line up to date him, the guys want to be him, but Reed never gave a damn about anyone but his family until Ella Harper walked into his life.

What started off as burning resentment and the need to make his father’s new ward suffer turned into something else entirely—keep Ella close. Keep Ella safe. But when one foolish mistake drives her out of Reed’s arms and brings chaos to the Royal household, Reed’s entire world begins to fall apart around him.

Ella doesn’t want him anymore. She says they’ll only destroy each other.

She might be right.

Secrets. Betrayal. Enemies. It’s like nothing Reed has ever dealt with before, and if he’s going to win back his princess, he’ll need to prove himself Royally worthy.

My Review:

Holy smokes this book was everything I could have asked for and more.  After that ending from Paper Princess I didn’t know what to do with myself for days upon days.  I couldn’t even find a good book to take my mind off of it.

Broken Prince picks up right where Paper Princess left off, and I feel like anything I say is a spoiler, so I am actually going to keep this review short and recommend you read this series.  Instead of the book being told from Ella’s perspective it is told in dual point of view between Ella and Reed which I was really thrilled about because this time I could be inside of the Royal Prince’s head.

This book had plenty of twists and turns and even more than book one had.  Ella was still a great main character, and she wouldn’t dwell but instead stand up for herself and others to the bullies of the school.  The scenes between her and Jordan are always entertaining.

The Royal boys were still a big mess and that is what draws me to them the most.  This series is the most addicting series I have ever read.  The book does end on a cliffhanger as it did in book one, and I feel like there were multiple cliffhangers that caught me off guard.  My mind is still on overload, and I am already yearning for book three.
