Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

My pick of the week is...
The Goal by Elle Kennedy

Publication Date: September 26, 2016
Reading Level: New Adult
Publisher: Indie
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.

Why I Am Waiting 

I binged the previous 3 books in this series while I was sick and home from work this summer. New adult romance is my guilty pleasure--the type of books I go to when I want to read but don't have the mental capacity to delve into an extreme fantasy world. Elle Kennedy is an amazing source of entertainment, feels, and sporty love interests that are deeper than they seem. While I think this is going to be my least favorite of the four books in this series because I think this whole kid plot-line is a little out there and Sabrina is a teensy bit stereotypical, I am so excited to dive into this one and get to know our final member of the off-campus crew!


Are you equally as excited for this book as me? Is there another book you are even more excited about? Please share your thoughts with me below!
