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.

**5 Stars**
I was dying to read this book after the teaser in The Score. Dean was replaced by Tucker as my Off-Campus man! Elle did an amazing job on Tucker and Sabrina' story and it not disappoint.

Tucker is amazing. Playing hockey at Briar is something he loves, but with all of his friends starting to get girlfriends, he is feeling something missing. Hitting up a bar after practice or game isn't something unusual for him or his buddies, but the love at first feeling with Sabrina he has while at Malone's is something he wasn't prepared. Tucker is my favorite Off-Campus man because of his caring and responsible side. He works hard for where he is and doesn't take things for granted.

Sabrina has no time for men. She works two jobs and is pre-law, getting accepted into Harvard Law is her dream. Meeting and falling for Tucker wasn't something she had on her radar or something she wanted to do. She fought and then she got pregnant. Sabrina's character is amazing. It shows how when you're determined enough you don't let little things stop you, especially when you have goals to better yourself.

Tucker loves fiercely, but he does it in a way that allowed Sabrina to love him back and to move at her own pace... even after they found out she was pregnant. Tucker and Sabrina's story is my favorite of the Off-Campus series. I love how it started and I love how it ended. They both deserve the HEA they received at the end and the life they created together.
