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.
"Smart, sexy and utterly addictive, I fell in love with Tucker's strength and patience. But it was his dirty mouth in the bedroom that made me swoon and search for tickets to a hockey game!" --#1 New York Times bestselling author Vi Keeland
"Tucker is mine, ladies. I called it. This series just keeps getting better." --USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen--This text refers to the paperback edition.

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!

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?
I enjoyed that this book happens in tandem with the third book, even though I had to cry again, whereas the first three take place one after another.
After meeting Sabrina in previous books, I wondered whether I would like the character but after the first chapter, I loved her. Tuck is amazing, and from reading this book, you can see why everyone loves him. On the outside, he’s a sweet southern gentleman but a bad boy in the bedroom. I needed a handheld fan reading the spicy scenes!!!
I’ve loved every minute of reading this series and cannot wait to start Briar U.
Within the first 2/3 chapters I was more in love with Tuck than I think any of the other guys, and I really enjoyed/loved the other 3 books. Sabrina and Tucker were just something special.
I don’t have a problem with the main trope of the book even though some people don’t like it in books in general but it was SO well done in this book! You met and got to know the characters before the main dilema, and the solution wasn’t rushed- the author took her time to make sure that it’s complex nature is discussed.
Overall, this is my favourite book in the series and even the spice was turned up a notch! A great read ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
