Shes 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 doesnt include a gorgeous hockey player who believes in love at first sight. One night of sizzling heat and surprising tenderness is all shes 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, hes 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 doesnt hurt that the soon-to-be mother of his child is beautiful, whip-smart, and keeps him on his toes. The problem is, Sabrinas 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, hell have to convince her that some goals can only be made with an assist.

Prickly heroines aren‘t my favorite, but the happy ending was very satisfying.

HOWEVER!! I‘ve hit my Goodreads goal (which I admittedly set low on purpose) so I will reward myself with a reread of a classic that I only read once a long time ago and loved and really want to experience anew as an AHEM slightly older woman. Find out tomorrow what it is 😊

I just finalized my reading goals for 2019. I‘m aiming to read 75 books overall and 36 of my own books. Anyone else joining the #MountTBR challenge this year?

Itchyfeetreader I am interested in this - the unreads in our house are out of control 3y
TheBookAddict I definitely have to join! 😆 So, do we sign up on Goodreads or do we just follow the group? 3y

I just realized I hit my reading goal for the year! 🤩

How's everyone else doing? Did you set a goal this year?

MelissaSue81 Great job! My original goal was 50, but I hit that in May or June, so I upped it to 100 - I‘m at 166 now! I‘m trying for 200 but I don‘t think I‘ll quite get there. 3y

seydoggy I am going to try to 50 books for 2019. I set a modest goal of 14 books this year (I am a busy parent of 3, demanding job), and I am now at 27 books, on my way to >29 before the year is out. I didn't start in earnest until mid way in the year. I think 50 might be achievable in 2019. 3y
MrT My goal was to read all new authors. Up to 28 so far for 2018 3y
scowler1 Creeping up on 100 (I don't have a day job) I was hoping to hit 110 and start the Hobbit on January 1st to celebrate Mr Bagginnses one hundred and eleventy first birthday and my forty ninth. Nerd😛 3y

Not bad, but definitely the weakest of the series. It just didn't have the same sizzle as the first 3. Overall a fantastic #romantsy series though! I highly recommend if you're ever in the mood for some seriously racy new adult romance 😆

I'm setting the same goal as last year for 2018 - even though I exceeded this number by quite a bit in 2017, I want to leave room for lengthier reads as well without added pressure. If my overall number goes down but total pages stay about the same or go up, I'd be happy with that! 😄

mommyincolor I didnt complete my goal for last year but I did set a higher goal for this year: 100 books. Good luck to you and Happy New Year! 4y
Andrew65 Good luck, I have set a target for books but as I want to read longer books this year I am more interested in tracking the number of pages. 4y

I'm one book away from reaching my goal! Thirty is a tad low, but this year I really got into reading more and have taken more time for myself and watched less on the tv. I know I will surpass it by a ton considering my #tbr pile.

I stayed up way too late reading this last night, but the characters really drew me in. Still impressed by Sabrina's dedication and madly, and unsurprisingly, in love with Tucker. #romantsy

EloisaJames It's not my favorite in the series, but I couldn't stop reading! 5y
JenicaDawn @EloisaJames, this was the first in that series I read! I'm in law school so any time I see something about law in a romance novel, it's an instant buy. 😂 5y

The weakest in the off-campus series (which is sad because Tuck was a fave in the first 3 books!). But If you've already invested much ❤️love❤️for our Briar boys, you will want to read this. Looks like a spin-off is in the making but gotta be honest, I think it's time to move on, Elle. STILL -- hands down the best NA series I have read!

This book was a surprise for me. It was different from the other books in the series and I really really like both Tuck and Sabrina 💞If you are looking for a new adult romance in which both characters are mature enough in dealing with their problems and issues, you should read this one!

(3.5 stars) Three Thoughts 1) liked Sabrina more than I thought I would and really loved Tucker 2) lots of time spent on their history and bringing up to where The Score ends 3) thought was last book but seeds seem to be laid for more

I don't normally read books with abs on the cover. It's usually advertising a type of book I'm not into. But I loved the entire Off Campus series. They're sweet, fun, sexy, and just well written. I can't recommend them enough! #offcampus #newadult #thegoal #romance #ellekennedy #5stars

I unfortunately did not like this one as much as the previous books in the series. It wasn't bad but I felt it was unnecessary long and just not as entertaining as the previous books.

Just finished reading The Goal, the last book in the Off-Campus Series by Elle Kennedy. Normally I stay away from new-adult books, but I really enjoyed this series. I think The Goal might actually be the best one of the series. Some poignant moments, some really funny ones, friendships and families - all the best elements making this story a great one. Loved it!

The final book in the four part Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy. The first in the series was my favorite, with each one declining a bit as they are all so similar. This was a step up for me from book 3 though, for sure. The series ends on a high note, if only because Tucker is totally lovable. ❤️
