      I was pleasantly surprised with this book It s a young adult book with a sports theme In the beginning I thought I was going to become bored with the football talk and play by play on the field but that was the farthest from the truth As I continued to read, I found out this was a story that showed the value of family, loyalty, perseverance and love This book is an angsty read but it s full of heart Nico is the boy that lives in the West End, which is the bad neighbourhood, one where they may be [...]

      I m not a person connected to sports I ve never been I was born lazy.At school, I used to do everything I could to not participate in sports activities.I hated P.E and for that only, this story could have failed me big time.Anyhow, I was curious after reading a few reviews I thought that maybe I could skim the boring parts And focus on the romance Gah Did I I did not Not sure how the author pulled this off I mean, getting a 5 Star from me, because there is a lot of football here I enjoyed every [...]

      On sale for 0.99 First and foremost I LOVED the message in this one As the author states in her acknowledgements This book is about than just football It s about family And it s about the way people see other people And that really shined through for me People don t always see the best in one another, and sometimes it s not even done in a malicious way Sometimes people have the best intentions and just don t know any better It s not okay it s never okay to treat someone differently or make assu [...]

      3 StarsOverall Opinion This wasn t just a story about two kids falling in love, I felt like it was about family It was about the fact that no mater where you come from, whither you come from the the poor side of town or the rich, everyone has their own struggles and obstacles that they face While I appreciated the family feel of the book and the overall message, I wanted a little romance tbh I just didn t fully feel their connection romantically I did feel like they cared for each other, but i [...]

      Just couldn t get into this one In all fairness, I ve been in one serious book rut and this is the 4th book I couldn t connect to.It had everything going for it a YA sport romance with 2 star crossed lovers But it was really, really, realllllllyyyyyyyy slow And had an inordinate amount of football talk I just didn t care about Lately, it s also been really hard for me to get into books that aren t dual POV, mainly because I find being in one character s head for that long cumbersome And the hero [...]
