Review: The Goal (Off-Campus #4) by Elle Kennedy



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.


Just finished this one and I’m a little bit disappointed. I mean, it wasn’t bad, but I wasn’t feeling like staying up all night to keep reading. 

Tucker is a sweetheart. He’s exactly as I imagined in the previous books. He’s not actively looking for it but he does want to find love, to have a family and all that. He’s just waiting for the right time and the right girl. On the other hand, Sabrina’s plans definitely don’t involve love, and even less so hockey players! But Tucker wants her, and when he wants something he goes for it.

Although I enjoyed Tucker’s chase, the first half of the book was pretty slow, funny but slow nonetheless. It did pick up during the second half, and I liked how things developed, I just didn’t like how Sabrina faced her feelings. She feels she’s not good enough for Tucker and that’s mainly what keeps them apart. And as much as her doubts were understandable at some times, it wasn’t believable to drag them on for so long. So, that was a bit annoying.

I loved seeing all the old characters, and the writing was entertaining and funny as always. I was just expecting a little bit more from the plot and Sabrina’s character development. I’m really excited for the spin-off! Can’t wait!
