The Goal, by Elle Kennedy | Book Review #298

Book Review

32315591She’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.

I knew what to expect from The Goal, since it was revealed when I read the last book, The Score. What I read in The Goal however, was waaay different than what I thought would happen. There’s a heaviness to Sabrina’s story that I didn’t expect at all. And there’s a side to Tucker that I didn’t expect either.

I’m impressed that Sabrina achieved her goals, and I’m very happy that Tucker found what he wanted to do. In the end, I’m happy with how The Goal turned out to be, especially with the ending of this book.

There are some moments in the book where I was honestly disgusted with a characters actions. I’m happy that that character got what they deserved. Hell, I have never wanted a characters life to be on the line more than this character.

All in all, The Goal was a good book and I’m glad that the story ended with Sabrina and Tucker’s point of view.

I gave The Goal, 3 stars on GoodReads.

Happy Reading!
