About The Goal…

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 of The Goal

The Goal (Off-Campus, #4)The Goal by Elle Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What’s not to love about the latest Off-Campus novel by Elle Kennedy? Absolutely nothing. It is flawlessly written and full of life, with all the heat and heart you’ve come to expect from this outstanding author.

If anything, Tucker, the hero, is almost too perfect – one of the best book boyfriends I’ve ever fantasized about. There isn’t a man alive that could measure up to this sexy, funny, romantic, loyal and athletic hunk of hockey hotness, so enjoy every moment you spend with him. His heroine, Sabrina, is a complicated, highly independent, funny, stubborn, driven young woman who is simultaneously immensely frustrating and completely endearing. Together, their chemistry is off the charts hot. When they’re apart, each struggling with their own fears and feelings, you positively ache for them.

This is no insta-love story; it’s a story of two very different personalities that, together, become whole. There are twists and turns along the way, any of which could derail their growing relationship, but the strength of each character shines through when you need it most.

Elle perfectly weaves the right amount of humor, angst, and poignance into every scene. I read it in a single sitting because I didn’t want to let this couple go. Now I wish I could go back again and read it for the first time.

Each book in this series reads perfectly as a standalone, but read in order, the story of these hockey buddies, their loves and losses, their individual journeys and pitfalls elevates this series to an entirely new level, actively engaging and enrapturing the reader from start to finish. I can’t wait to see whose story comes next.

Always a passionate reader and a somewhat more casual writer, Paula Radell started her first book review and promotions blog, Curl Up and Read, in September of 2013. In early 2014, she left a career in nursing to become a freelance project management consultant. She also turned her part-time hobby into a full-time passion by becoming a freelance editor, publicist, and a hopeful author. She is a Goodreads Librarian, Group Moderator, and a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association. She has also taken advanced internet and social media marketing certificate courses at the University of San Francisco. Born and raised near the beaches of southeastern Virginia, Paula now lives in Mendocino County, California with her husband Ray, a couple of stray tabby cats, Matthew & Diana, and a 2-year old rescue Greyhound, Willow. When she is not catering to the dog’s every whim, touring and tasting the latest California sparkling wine vintages with Ray, or sitting in Starbucks reading a great book, you can find Paula at her laptop – writing, editing, reviewing or avidly promoting the books and authors she loves. Two releases are planned in the coming year: Where Angels Lie, a dark romance; and an inspirational novella (name still under debate).
