Publisher's Summary

There are two types of people in high school: the ones you can date and the ones you can’t. Unfortunately for me, I’m the latter. 

Even though I’m around hot football players every afternoon, they are not allowed to date me. If they even come close to flirting, my dad, Coach “The Boss” Davis, makes them run laps around the field until they puke. Nothing scares off a boy more than the threat of physical pain.  

Not only has he forbidden me to date anyone at all, he’s even made me the football team’s water girl so he can keep tabs on me. Apparently, overprotective dad is a fabulous guy deterrent. Outdoor shops should find a way to bottle it and sell it. They’d make a killing.  

What Dad doesn’t know is that I spend every last second of those two blissful hours of practice in the scorching California heat staring at Tyson Blake. He is the epitome of perfection in a six-foot-two, incredibly toned, smells-good-even-when-he-sweats senior body. And when he smiles, angels sing. Literally.   

And Dad hates him.  

It feels a bit cliche to say I fell for the one guy who would send Dad’s already high blood pressure over the the top, but it’s true. There’s something about Tyson. Something he’s trying to hide. But I can see through his cocky persona, and I know there’s something more.

Young Adult romance

This is a book about high school love, relationships with parents and dealing with the adults who have failed them. I'm not always a fan of young adult books, especially romances since I always feel like they are too young (I'm old) but I did think this was a good story. It dealt with some serious topics but kept it light enough that the story didn't get too bogged down. I would have felt more comfortable with the romance had it been college age kids instead of high school but the premise wouldn't have worked in that setting. They had to be young.

Because it is a young adult book, don't expect it to be a comprehensive narrative of what it is like to live with a controlling father or alcoholic mother. The reader gets to see enough to make us aware of the stresses but not too much. That probably leaves some gaps in the story of their lives but the story isn't intended to do more than that. So just use your imagination if you feel the need.

I though both Destiny and Tyson showed some maturity for teenagers in many ways but also showed their youth. For example, they like each other and know going behind Destiny's dad's back is wrong. So Tyson wants to do the mature thing but can't quite manage it as he is still a teenager. He tends to go back and forth on that one. He just can't quite seem to hold on to the maturity part. In so many ways he is just a kid, yet he takes care of his mother and his sister like a grown man. He is adorably sweet with his sister. Who wouldn't love him after witnessing his caring behavior toward her.

I thought the narrator of the audiobook did a good job at portraying Destiny's personality and the angst of high school. She was enjoyable to listen to.

Sex: some kisses and references to kids making out
Language: no
Violence: no

References to the kids going to a party with alcohol that ended with police arriving.

*I received a complimentary copy of the audio book and voluntarily chose to review it.

A Good Young Adult Book

This book was pretty good but I guess not good enough for someone my age. I'm 24 and I love reading Young Adult books from time-to-time. This one fell a bit flat for me since it felt a bit underdeveloped for my tastes. But I feel like it was a wonderful, sweet book for someone a bit younger than me.

main character too naive

it's a cute/sweet story but the main character acts more like a middle schooler than a junior in high school.

So much potential

The book is really well written in terms of scene setting. Nothing developed, the inner monologues were cringy, in the sense that I can't picture anyone talking to themselves that way. The storyline itself was good so I finished the book, it just needed more.

Great story about finding love

This was a great story about a father and daughter both finding love unexpectedly. Destiny is the coach’s daughter and he puts the fear into his players to stay away from his daughter. Tyson is the star quarterback who is having trouble in chemistry and needs tutoring. Destiny and Tyson get close but it means lying to her father and Tyson has problems at home. The secondary story is Destiny’s father dating again after years of being alone and the affect it has on relationship of father and daughter.
