New York Times bestseller Elle Kennedy brings you a sexy new Off-Campus novel that can be read as a standalone…
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.

Just finished The Score! I am beyond excited for the 4th!!! Waiting a whole year is going to be a struggle!!!
This book was just OK for me. I didn't really connect with the character Sabrina. I felt it dragged on more than the others.
The ending was great and I loved the storyline.
Kennedy brilliantly unfolds The Goal
Sabrina James is tough as nails, self-motivated, ready for graduation, and moving onto law school. She's fights her own demons which focus around her less than stellar upbringing, however she refuses to let those dark paths determine her life’s journey. John Tucker breathes hockey through and through. He knows he isn't NHL bound, but hockey provided him a scholarship and his degree is his way out of his struggling life back home in Texas. When the two meet at the local college pub the attraction is immediate but the long lasting evidence of their hook up changes things forever.
Once again Elle Kennedy weaves the sorted details of two very strong, determined college students with definite goals and dreams of a better future. Kennedy brilliantly addresses the sexual revolution of the 21st century college female, where hook ups are common and long lasting relationships are few and far between. Unfortunately, when you meet your soul mate it is difficulty to continue denying where your heart beats its strongest. Sabrina James is a multidimensional protagonist as Kennedy slowly peels back the layers of her turbulent childhood. She fully develops James’ rationale behind her sexual hook ups and deep determination to succeed academically to ensure a secure future for herself. Tucker’s past, while not nearly the train wreck of James’, also helps fuel his determination to become a successful business entrepreneur in order to help he and his mom out of the financial struggles they have faced most of his life. The exchanges between these two are fueled with passion and desire yet Sabrina is a protected soul. Kennedy weaves their web developing their characters over the course of time and truly exploring the difficult roads one must travel before arriving at the deep seated truth which heart already knew, but the brain needed more time to figure out. Loved the whole off-campus series and the interwoven story lines building the epic series.
