The Goal (Off-Campus Book 4) Kindle Edition
Get ready for another binge-worthy romance from New York Times and international bestselling author 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.

Tucker is still awesome in this book, and being the "mom" of the hockey dudes, he's a perfect as a young dad! He takes everything in stride and he really just wants Sabrina to know he cares and wants to do the best for them. I just wanted her to let him! I am really glad that even though they have an unplanned pregnancy it doesn't hold her back from her plans to go to Harvard Law. Get it girl! I just really wish she would have told him how she felt about him. I understand she felt like she trapped him, but he was smitten with her from hello. It just drove me crazy that she wouldn't tell him how she felt and held him at arms length pretty much the whole book, when we knew that Tucker was crazy for her the whole time.
I warmed up to Dean in the third book, because there was definitely more to him than what we see in the other books, but I really HATED him in this one. He was so adamant that Sabrina was ruining Tuck's life and she should get an abortion. I did love the Tucker got snappy with him telling him to not speak bad about the mother of his child. Those two have history and they do hash it out a bit, but the way he was acting was so childish and I hated it. I also couldn't stand Tucker's mom, she was so rude to Sabrina, but of course Tucker is a mama's boy so she can't say anything to him.
Although, Tucker is great and I'm glad when these two finally get together for real, I have to say this was my least favorite of the series. That being said, I am so amped for the spin-off series that Kennedy is working on. And by amped, I mean I already reads books one and two and now I have to impatiently wait for book three coming in October!

Standalone (In Character Series)
Tropes: Accidental Pregnancy, Secret Relationship
If you are sleeping on or putting off this book, then stop it! Garrett and Hannah are still my number one, but John freaking Tucker is hot on their heels. It’s always the quiet ones.
Tucker is such a southern gentleman in the streets and a freak in the sheets. I felt like I related to Sabrina more than any of the other girls in this series. As someone who is an introvert, keeps their head down and just goes about their business and hates change before they are ready, I really appreciated the way Tucker went about handling her feelings and having the patience of a saint.
I’m glad this book didn’t do what a lot of accidental pregnancy books do and hide the pregnancy from the man and it causes a rift. I like that they found out together and they were able to deal with it together as a team. Everything about Tucker and Sabrinas journey felt very realistic, and was on a realistic timeline.
I wish I had read this closer to when I read Dean and Allie’s story since the books run side by side on the same timeline, but that didn’t take away from the story for me at all. This was a great ending for all our favorite first gen Briar U Boys.

While it wasn't my favourite in the series, I did still really like The Goal and I think Tucker is genuinely the sweetest character ever. Like there is no competition.
When their relationship goes from casual to... a lot more than casual because of a surprise pregnancy they have to navigate their new relationship along with the disruption to their lives.
I didn't like how much Sabrina kept from Tucker. Tucker was such a perfect book boyfriend hero and it got to me just how much she tried to constantly shut him out. Like, I get it was part of her independent character but it just pissed me off a little too much. But that was my only fault. Otherwise I really enjoyed it.
I'm unsure if I'll read The Legacy or not. I've seen so many negative reviews and people saying it ruined the whole series for them. If you've read it: should I bother? Or should I leave the series as it?
From start to finish I was hooked to this funny, romantic novel. Tucker, bless his heart, is a romantic. He believes in love at first sight, and he believes that the first time he and Sabrina locked eyes across the crowded bar that she was "the one", but Sabrina only saw him through lust filled goggles. Where Sabrina only wants one night, Tucker wants more, and he's dead set on getting just that... But I don't think the "more" he was expecting to get was a baby.
I loved everything that happened in this book. There were no moments where I found a scene to drag or just be dull; it was all perfect to me. I loved Tucker. I loved Sabrina. I loved their chemistry and banter, and I loved watching their relationship grow. I most especially loved the banter between Tucker, Garrett, Logan, and Dean - many scenes between those four had me crying with laughter! Seeing Sabrina and Tucker as parents, and watching as Garrett and Logan fight for the title of Godfather... I could just list everything that I loved that happened in this book, but then I'd be listing EVERYTHING that happened. It all really was perfect, and it sucks that I didn't start this series sooner. I'm sad to see it have to end, but I've heard rumours that there'll be a spin-off series coming featuring the rest of the hockey team at Briar University? I hope it's true, and if it is, I cannot wait to read it!
Garrett was Gorgeous.
Logan was Loveable.
Dean was Dreamy.
But John Tucker was just Tremendous.
Tremendously hot. Tremendously sweet. Tremendously loyal. Tremendously edgy in the bedroom....gotta watch the quiet ones. (You surprised me Mr Tucker)
I am a hopeless romantic. I wear my Kindle heart upon my sleeve and nothing pleases this Cinderella complex girl more than a solid, loyal hero. Tucker is the hero that ticks all the boxes. And then kicks it out the ball park because he is THAT awesome a character. He has the measure of Sabrina and absolutely 'gets' her. He breaks through that frosty protective armour she wears and sees the funny, loyal, sweet girl she is. He isn't heavy handed -this guy has patience like no other - he gently chips away at her and proves unabashedly that he has got her covered. Tuck is so chilled and compliments Sabrina's feisty character beautifully.
I wasn't sure how I felt about Sabrina in the earlier books but Elle Kennedy won me over totally with her brilliantly layered character. Her backstory is heartbreaking but Sabrina pushes forward and constantly demands the best of herself. Watching her and Tuck fall in love was beautiful. Their chemistry was off the charts.
It was great to catch up with the gang- I did lose some of the love for Mr Di Laurentis for a chapter or two though.
This was a fantastic ending to what has been a superb series. If you love sports romances this series is one of the very best in my opinion.
Stop reading here if you don't want to know info around cheating/HEA.
Potential spoiler follows...
Recommend over 18's only due to sex and swearing.
HEA? Oh yes. *beams in delight*
Cheating? Hell no...these two are so in love with each other, despite Sabrina being in denial for a while.
