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.

We all remember Tucker & Sabrina from the last book. And this 4th book is kind of happening at the same time as the 3rd book. And we all remember how the last book ended - but we now go back a few months in time....

Sabrina is extremely focused on college. She has to be the best in everything. She has to get a scholarship to Harvard Law. She needs to get out of the hellhouse called home, where her grandma and her creepy stepdad live ... together - in the same bedroom sometimes even! Ew.
All she wants is to become the best lawyer she can be; to have enough money to get our of her trashy life.
That's why she doesn't do relationships. Or plans to start a family anytime soon.

Enter Tucker.
Star of the Briar-College Hockey team.
He is planning on having a happy family one day.
And once he sees Sabrina in a bar and starts talking and flirting.... he's starting to see his future. She could be his forever-ever-after girl. But she's not really all that interested.
One night - yes. But that's it.
Or is it???
And what happens when life-plans don't exactly go according to plan?

What will happen to Tucker & Sabrina?
Will there be a HEA?
Will everybody die at the end?

I'm not telling you that of course ☺


Finally a new Off Campus romance!
I just love those guys and their girls.

In the last book we kinda only heard bad things about Sabrina from Dean. But that was just because he was jealous of .... she comes across as this bitchy genius. She doesn't have time to make friends or to even have conversations with students on campus. She has to study and work and study some more - she needs to get into the best law-school.

And Tucker - he is soo adorable.
The perfect other half for career-driven Sabrina.
They would be amazing for each other. Only they don't really see it in the beginning. Well, at least Sabrina doesn't. ☺

I loved watching them fight or what they want most in life.
It was so adorable and sexy and frustrating and moving and sad and grrrr. I just loved it!

I might've shed some tears here and there....

This was the most adorable romance!
I couldn't put it down! I just had to know if those two would get their HEA and how!

#TheGoal was such and adorable & sexy & funny & moving & serious romance! About two people about to start real life - and what happens when not everything goes according to plan - but how you can still get your happy ending if you fight, hope & love hard enough! Run to your nearest amazon to find out if and how Sabrina & Tucker will get their HEA!

I can't wait for the next book - probably Fitzy and Dean's sister Summer ☺

ARC received for an honest review

OK, so if you have read the series you have already met Sabrina and Tuck, and kinda sorta know a bit about where their story goes.

But if you haven't - never fear (except fear that you are missing the goodness of the first 3 books) as this book follows the timeline of the other books, and goes back a few months from where book 3 ended

We only really heard bad crap about Sabrina in the other books, so I wasn't really sure what I was going to think of her as a main character.  But I should never have worried, as Ms Kennedy has again blown me away with this installment of the Off Campus series.


Sabrina and Tucker are just wonderful both together and apart.  The more we learn of them, especially Sabrina, the more I liked them.  They are kinda perfect for each other, even if they don't realise it.  We are taken on the journey as they fight for what they want in life, what they need to do to be happy in life, and at times it made me laugh, made me cry, I got frustrated and angry, the whole gamut of emotions.

Ms Kennedy has again given us a fun, sweet, sexy book full of hockey hotties, and I can't wait to see what she brings us next **cough cough Fitzy & Summer cough cough**
