The Goal

The Goal Summary

Get ready for another binge-worthy romance from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy!

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.

Book Reviews


Not sure how I feel…4 star

I love Tuck and Sabrina and Jamie but sometimes the story felt never ending because we’re dealing with the same problem the whole time. Sabrina keeps Tuck at an arms length throughout most of the story and that’s the whole plot; her opening up to him fully and coming to terms with her love. I like their relationship at it’s end point but sometimes the story felt very stuck and repetitive, very well written though45


Better than some of the reviews :)4 star

I enjoyed this a lot. It wasnt as heavy emotionally as i was expecting after reading other reviews. My main point of contention is Tuckers mom lol. Tucker never stuck up for Sabrina and Sabrina’s last words to his mom were good but needed to be so much more. The girl is a new mom and prob postpartum, we needed more fireworks.45


Great addition to the series4 star

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t my top favorite, but it still held on as a competitor. I’ve heard that this book isn’t everyone’s jam, so I wonder if being a parent myself is part of that. I loved that this story had real life situations and two leads strong enough to work through them. I always get so crazy when two characters know that they love each other but can’t tell the other person. It’s just unnecessary drama in my head, which is probably why I took a star (but that’s just a personal thing for me). This book was written well with compelling characters. I’d definitely recommend jumping into this book if you enjoy the other Off Campus books before this one.45


Could have lived without reading this book3 star

I wanted to read the story of every hockey boy from the team.. until Tucker’s turn. I read because it gives you an alternate reality of what’s going on in the world, it allows you to escape from the real problems and sadly this wasn’t the story for me. It was so filled with real problems that rather than enjoy it, it felt the problems were mine. Tucker’s mom is a disrespectful being and Tucker itself didn’t stand up for Sabrina even knowing his mother was wrong. I finished because to me books are commitments and I don’t like to leave them unfinished. That way I can give a good, honest review. The only reason I rate this book three stars is because it very well written and the story is a good one, just not my type.35

The goal5 star

Definitely one of my favorites. I love tuck and Sabrina55


Lovely, but a little tiring3 star

This book was lovely. Tucker is the biggest sweet heart out of all the boys!! But Sabrina is so frustrating with her inability to communicate with him.. ugh. I find myself getting bored over the same internal dialogue. But I enjoyed the fast pacing of the book tho. Overall, I like it.35


not a fan lol1 star

literally what is this15


So underrated5 star

Omg I didn’t care about this book going in same way I didn’t care about the Score. In my humble opinion this is the best book of the series. The other guys were boys, John Tucker is a man. I loved every bit of it. Love Sabrina and I want to reread it right now55
