Mikayla, or Mike as she likes to be called, is unhappy with life’s current turn of events. After the sudden death of her father, she finds herself starting a new life in the Podunk town her mother grew up in, a month before her senior year begins. Mike goes to a party with her cousins to meet their friends, but she spends the whole night wishing she’d stayed home. That changes when a handsome cowboy unexpectedly shows up.

Dooner has been working hard every day at football practice to secure a scholarship to get out of this small town once and for all. Looking for a night out, he crashes a party, and suddenly it’s the new girl, Mikayla, who’s got his attention. She’s like a breath of fresh air compared to the girls he’s known all his life.

When Mike and Dooner meet they are attracted to each other, but will their encounter turn into something real or will it lead to nowhere?

Bio

Marysue G Hobika grew up in Caledonia, NY and attended SUNY at Buffalo where she studied to be a Spanish teacher. Currently she lives in Pittsford, NY with her husband, three children, and her pug.

Bio in Marysue’s own words…

Hi, I’m Marysue G Hobika, and yes I like the G because it says a lot about who I am and where I come from.

I’m from a small rural town called Caledonia, which is about 20 miles outside of Rochester, NY. Nothing can really compare to growing up in a small town where you know everyone and everyone knows you. My high school graduating class had only 96 students, so it is safe to say that I knew them all.

Many of my ideas come from my childhood and having lived in this tight knit community. It was a safe place to grow up and I remember riding my bike all over town with my friends and my cousin, stopping at the AM/PM minimarket to buy candy or big 32oz sodas. During the winter we played out in the snow and even tooled around on my friend’s snowmobile until I kept making us crash because I wasn’t leaning the right way. It was a happy childhood and one I wouldn’t change for anything.

Before heading off to college, I decided to spend a year as a Rotary exchange student. I was curious about what it would be like to live in a foreign country and truly be assimilated into their language and culture. I had taken Spanish in high school and it had immediately clicked, so Spain was a logical choice for my study abroad. I spent a year in the Canary Islands and my passion for the foreign language blossomed. A quote I once heard was, “To speak two languages is to have two souls.” And that is exactly how I feel. Who knows when I might decide to weave details from my experience into a book?

When it was time to go to college I was ready for a big school setting with little anonymity, but I didn’t want to be too far from home. I chose to attend college at SUNY at Buffalo to study to become a Spanish teacher.

I was a Spanish middle school teacher until I decided to stay home and raise a family of my own. Currently I live in Pittsford, NY with my husband, three children and a pug. My house is a busy place with kids coming and going. They all offer inspiration for my books.

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Marysue Hobika.)
    The last thing 17-year-old Mikayla wants is to move from the city and her friends, to the middle of nowhere to live with her grandfather, but her mother has made the decision and there’s nothing she can do about it.

    Leaving her sister Emma to suck up to the cheerleaders, Mikayla instead befriends James Dooner, the one guy on the football team who isn’t really liked by the other team-members. As they spend time together, Mikayla begins to fall for James, but with her cousin Tyler warning her off of him, and everyone else seemingly trying to come between them, is there really any hope for James and Mikayla’s relationship to become something real?


    This book was a sweet YA/NA contemporary romance, with some steamy (for YA) little scenes between Mikayla and James that were great!

    I liked Mikayla; I liked how she tried to stand up for herself, and wasn’t afraid to go against everyone else if they were doing something she didn’t approve of. I also liked the way she was honest with people, and didn’t bend to peer pressure, even when it was difficult. I also liked the way that she wasn’t best-friends with her sister, and didn’t have a problem telling her off when she borrowed her clothes. It’s nice to come across siblings that aren’t Best Friends Forever – in real life siblings don’t always get on!

    James was a total sweetie, and I loved how much he loved Mikayla, and how open he was with her about his feelings. The romance between them was lovely, and there were a few steamy moments that got my heart racing with excitement, even though there was nothing graphic. This book does mention sex on several occasions though so this is probably more suited to an older teen audience.

    I liked the storyline in this book, and although I wasn’t quite as interested in the football side of things, the romance element made up for this. There were a few events that I didn’t see coming, and the way that people kept trying to mess up Mikayla and James’ relationship certainly had me wanting to know what happened next!
    Overall; a good YA contemporary romance.
    7 out of 10.

    WOW, Where is the story!!

    The entire book should have been consolidated into about 5 chapters, then the epilogue should have been another 15 chapters not 6 pages. The story line is a good one about a high school senior artist and co-captain on the football team, and how they fall in love. By the time the book gets good it ends. Too bad because I would have loved to read more in this book or even in a squeal.

    Sweet, Quick Read

    This was a basic tennage love story, with many plot twisting events at the end. It only took me three days to complete. I enjoyed the read. The only reason I'm giving it a four is because there are gramatical errors throughout the book, which makes you have to reread the previous line.
