Meg's Review:I have nothing bad to say about this book. I literally loved every aspect of it. I am normally not a fan of Football books, or really anything sports related. I found not problems following this or connecting with its wonderful characters. All Lined Up definitely gave me a new look at the sport and the lovely men that play it. Dallas has been surrounded by football her entire life. College is going to be her escape. Though her father won't let her go as far as she wishes, anything is better than high school was. Well, that is until her father takes a couching job at her college. She just can't win.
Well, let me tell you, she may not walk in covered in Nutella, but this party sure does turn her life upside down. Hello Carson McClain. A player that is working with everything he has to make a life for himself. A future. He is on a one-mind track to make this happen. Well, until Dallas falls into his lap. He is a very worthy book boyfriend if I may say so. He is the guy you just fall in love with. He is true and worthy and just, well Carson. You will fall in love with him. I sure did.
"I could probably walk into this party wearing only my bra and underwear (slathered in some of that Nutella), and some idiot would bumble over, completely unaware, to ask me about my dad, what his plans were for the season, or how many high school state trophies were have lying around the house."
Well, if Dallas and Carson don't convince you to read this book, then we writing will. The novel flows extremely well and it's a very easy story to connect with. The words she writes though? They hook you line and sinker. She wrote one chapter that just has you bent over laughing over stella, and then Carson goes and does something like this:
"I can deny myself all I want, but one thing I cannot deny is just how fucking gorgeous this girl is. And exactly the kind of distraction I'm suppose to be staying away from."
This is a five star read. A HIGHLY recommend you grab this up and don't let it go. All Lined up is just the beginning and I can't wait to see where she takes this series next. #MustRead #FavoriteFiveStar
"I don't even get a word out before he grips my elbow, pulling me toward him, and slams his lips against mine."
Synopsis:New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack follows up her trio of hits—Losing It, Faking It, and Finding It—with this thrilling first novel in an explosive series bursting with the Texas flavor, edge, and steamy romance of Friday Night Lights.
In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.
Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.
But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.
Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It's obliterated.
Dallas doesn't know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn't know that Dallas is his new coach's daughter.
And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.
