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
This final novel in the Off Campus series tied everything up and warmed my heart while left me sad not to get anymore of the characters from Briar. Characters from previous books made appearances and wrapped up their story arcs.
Sabrina is a character who had been loosely referred to in previous books and not favourably. Exploring the background of Sabrina and her motivations provided insight into her character and made Sabrina an incredibly likeable and hardworking character. Sabrina is fighting her way up from a past that was less than savoury and her every waking moment has been planning and saving to get into Harvard Law School. Admirable qualities of Sabrina are her hardworking nature, big heart and utter focus in managing obstacles that life have thrown her way.
Tucker is labeled as a jock, a Hockey player and is not often seen as more than that. His devotion for Sabrina as evidenced in this book would make it hard for anyone to hate this character. Tucker is the most supportive man and he allows Sabrina her space while also providing support and love and wanting her in his life. The constant circling of these two characters as both aren’t able to aptly communicate their feelings for each other add to the drive of this book and kept me reading in anticipating for the Happily Ever After.
A beautiful conclusion to the Off Campus Quartet with every single one of my heartstrings being wrenched. I am in love with this series and the couplings of all of these hockey players in complex situations which challenge their love and shows that love concours any challenge.
Keep Calm and Read On,
