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.



Michel’s Review

You know what they say about those silent types.  They sneak up on you and blow your socks off.  John Tucker not only knocked my socks off , he completely captured my heart.

We’ve met all of the other hockey roommates in the previous books in the Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy.  John Tucker has been the steadfast and nurturing friend throughout the books.  He’s quiet, dependable, domesticated, and even keeled.  There’s another side to John Tucker as well.  He didn’t earn a four year hockey scholarship for being a nice guy.  He is a determined, hard working athlete that knows what it takes to win.  His college career may be coming to an end, the hockey season may be his last, but he has a new goal for his life.  A goal that includes winning Sabrina James heart.  A goal to become a successful business owner.  A goal to be the best father he can be.  His grit, determination, and patience is going to win the game.

Sabrina and John started out as a one night stand hook up.  Sabrina doesn’t have time for relationships.  She’s focused on her academics and getting accepted into Harvard Law School.  Her life is anything but easy.  She’s working two jobs, trying to help support her low life family, and staying at the top of her class. She has rules she lives by and goals she has to meet.  To most people she seems like a cold, driven, and heartless person.  Beneath the surface she’s a scared girl determined to rise up out of the life she was born into.  She wants a better life for herself.  When she meets John Tucker, he seems like the perfect guy to hook up with.  He’s charming, smart, and an athlete.  He doesn’t want forever, he wants right now.  She didn’t count on liking him so much or that he would be persistent in his pursuit.  She also didn’t count on getting pregnant.  This could ruin her chances of getting into Harvard.  It could ruin her future.

She’s not alone.  John Tucker is determined to do the right thing.  He’s going to stay in the Boston area rather than returning home to Texas.  He’s going to show Sabrina that she can have her dreams and have a supportive family.  He’s going to show her that she has his complete heart.

I absolutely fell head over heels for Tuck.  He is the kind of guy every woman wants to marry.  He’s the perfect guy.

I was anxious for this book to release because The Off-Campus series is one of my favorites.  At the same time I was sad to finish the book because John Tucker was the last roommate to fall in love.  The guys have graduated and moved on in their lives.  Hopefully the new guys that moved into their house will have some great stories to tell and hearts to conquer.

Hannah Wells has finally found someone who turns her on. But while she might be confident in every other area of her life, she’s carting around a full set of baggage when it comes to sex and seduction. If she wants to get her crush’s attention, she’ll have to step out of her comfort zone and make him take notice…even if it means tutoring the annoying, childish, cocky captain of the hockey team in exchange for a pretend date.

…and it’s going to be oh so good

All Garrett Graham has ever wanted is to play professional hockey after graduation, but his plummeting GPA is threatening everything he’s worked so hard for. If helping a sarcastic brunette make another guy jealous will help him secure his position on the team, he’s all for it. But when one unexpected kiss leads to the wildest sex of both their lives, it doesn’t take long for Garrett to realize that pretend isn’t going to cut it. Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him.

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.

He knows how to score, on and off the ice

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she’s going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.

It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.
