Review: Courtside Crush by Kayla Tirrell
This one isn't out yet. I was lucky enough to get an ARC. It releases on February 12th. But it is available for pre-order. I recommend checking it out. It's only $0.99!
Summary - So much for senior year being the best part of high school.
It all started when I caught my boyfriend cheating on me. I did what any girl would do—I got revenge. Of course, it didn’t stop there. Thanks to a condemning video, I also got eight weeks of community service and athletic probation right before basketball season is supposed to start. (There goes my spot as captain!)
Thankfully, there’s a guy at Marlowe Junction’s Helping Hands who makes passing the time more enjoyable. He’s gorgeous, funny, and a huge basketball fan. Too bad he’s also my brother’s biggest enemy…
What I Liked - This was a cute, sweet book. The drama was present, but not too heavy. The characters were likable. I especially loved how the female protagonist was kind of a trouble maker. But she wasn't like juvie bad, just normal teenager naughty. It felt true to high school. I always like sports books, especially ones where it's a subplot, but the romance is the real point. This is a fun Romeo and Juliet retelling. A forbidden romance since the guy is from a rival school. It was a unique twist.
Appropriate For - Any age. It was super clean. Don't remember if there were swears, but if so, you could count them on one hand. And just baby swears. Kissing is mild. No violence.
About The Author - Kayla has loved to read as long as she can remember. While she started out reading spooky stories that had her hiding under her covers, she now prefers stories with a bit more kissing. When she gets a chance to watch TV, she enjoys cheesy sci-fi and superhero shows. Most days, you'll catch her burning dinner in an attempt to cook while reading just one more chapter. Kayla lives in the sunshine state with her husband and three boys. Follow her online. Links from her website at www.tirrellblewrites.com.
