After the craziness that was my fall semester I needed a light-hearted read. Lucky for me Off Pitch by Brianna Kienitz was exactly what I needed. It has been on my to-read list since the bringing of the fall semester and I have finally got back into reading and writing for my blog.
Here is a short blurb about the book:
Soccer star Adeline Fahey has never taken an interest in the world outside of the pitch. The daughter of wealthy Irish immigrants, and a straight-A student, she sees nothing but the goal—finish her last two years of school and join a professional soccer team—no ifs, ands, or buts.
Then Gabriella Soto, a cello prodigy in her own right and the teaching assistant in Adeline’s dreaded Beginning Spanish class, walks onto her playing field.
After a drunken night in a T-rex costume boots their hearts onto a collision course, Adeline and Gabriella must tackle a field of school scandal, homophobic parents, and their own passionate career goals to have a shot at something more. In the face of so many obstacles, Adeline and Gabriella fear that their love may not be strong enough to score them the championship relationship they never knew they wanted.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I really liked that the characters had a sense of humor. There were times when I couldn’t help laughing out loud. I thought that the relationship between Adeline and Gabriella was very cute. They really loved and cared about each other. They handled their relationship problems well. The problems that they had were very relatable. They were growing up and finding out were their relationship fit into their goals and dreams.
The only problem I had with the story was the main character. Her personality was great and I thought she was hilarious but the way that she threw her money around was ridiculous. Even after her parents disowned her she still used their money. It was like she took no credit for herself.
If you are looking for a lighthearted romance novel this I would recommend this book.
