‘The Goal’ by Elle Kennedy

Unfortunately, ‘The Goal’ is the last book of the ‘Off-Campus’ series. If you read the previous books of the series, you can all probably guess the hero of the book. Our hero is Tucker aka ‘The Nurturer’ 🙂 and our heroine – btw this was really surprising for me – is Sabrina.

Tucker is sexy, caring, loyal and really protective. What I didn’t expected from Tucker was, being a dirty boy 🙂 Sabrina is hot, stubborn and smart. Even though her childhood was not ideal and she was really poor, this didn’t stop her dream and aim for the best. Her goal is to graduate Briar and get in to Harvard law. Getting pregnant and falling in love is not part of her plans but not everything goes as we plan.

If you’ve read ‘The Score’, you know Tucker reveals that he is going to be a father at the end of the book. I was kindda expecting that his secret girlfriend will be revealed because of all the mysterious disappearances throughout the ‘The Score’ but I was definitely not expecting him to knock someone up and definitely not Sabrina. My favorite thing about the book is it doesn’t start where it is left in ‘The Score’. It goes back and starts from the beginning of their relationships. So timeline wise mostly ‘The Score’ and ‘The Goal’ are parallel to each other.

Sabrina is very focused and works really hard to achieve what she wants. She doesn’t have time for a relationship and that is the reason why she only goes for hook ups. For Sabrina hooking up with Tucker is a one-time deal; however, Tucker wants more. It was fun to see Tucker chase Sabrina and try to get her to just have little fun. He tries everything to show her that she can get the future she wants while having a relationship. And when Sabrina accepts that having a relationship will not distract her from achieving her goal, she finds out that she is pregnant. Because of the things she faced as a child, she is struggling about what she has to do. I adored Tucker more during this time because he is always there to support Sabrina and he is trying to show her, he will be there for her as much as she allows him. I really liked the connection and chemistry between them. It was really interesting to see how they both changed their priorities and adjusted their lives to fit one another.

Also, at the end of the book it was really nice to see all of the characters from previous books and pieces of their lives after graduation. ‘Off-Campus’ is one of the best series, I’ve ever read and if you still didn’t read it, I highly recommend you to read it.

  • Would I recommend this book: Yes.
  • Would I re-read this book: Already did 🙂
  • Would I read future books by this author: Yes.

P.S. I wish there are more books in this series. I would have love to read more about Fitzy and Summer 🙂
