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 Goal totally caught me by surprise when I read it in December, and I just had to pick the second book up as soon as humanly possible, which took all of ten seconds as soon as I logged into my Amazon account. However, I’m sad to say, I just didn’t like this one as much as I liked the first book. I’ll get to all of that soon, I promise, but obviously I have to do my little fancast for this book, as I do.
So here is the John Logan I picture:
I mean look how cocky and Logany he looks in that gif. Come. On. He’s perfect, it’s just a fact.
And as much as Grace annoys me, which, yes, is a lot more than I thought she would, I guess I’ll find a fancast for her too..
Good enough, right? Right.
Alright, so lets start with the way these two met. I don’t know if this is going to seem like a spoiler since it happens within the first two chapters, but I suppose consider this a spoiler alert?
Why the hell did they have to meet the way they did? Why couldn’t it have been a little more… realistic? I mean, I never lived in the dorms, so maybe a super hot hockey player showing up at the freshman dorms, staying to watch movies, and then having random sexy times is totally realistic and not just the plot of a porno… Buuut, I’m kinda doubting that.
I’m totally going to admit that I fell in love with Logan throughout the story though, especially when he was trying to win Grace over again. It was literally the cutest thing ever, especially the red velvet couch part. That part had me laughing and ‘awhing’ at the same time generic cialis online.
The writing style is as amazing as the first book, and aside from having sexy times within the first five chapters, the pacing was really good. I have to admit, I kind of liked how they worked backwards and into a relationship instead of just being picture perfect and cute all of a sudden.
I definitely can’t wait for the next book, I’m already reading it now actually! And yes, it’s just as good.
I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
