He knows how to score, on and off the ice.
Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn't have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she's nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won't include the king of one-night stands.
It'll take more than flashy moves to win her over.
Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls; he's a ladies man, all right, and he's yet to meet a woman who's immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world - and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It's not over until he says it's over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it's time to stop focusing on scoring, and shoot for love.

"What a Difference a Narrator Makes (or Narrators)!"
I am a huge Elle Kennedy fan. I am an especially big fan of her Off Campus series. I have to say that I was hugely disappointed for the audio of the 1st 2 books of the series. Truthfully, had there been no change in narrator, I would not have purchased this, the 3rd book in the series. BUT, with the dual POV of the book, she also now has dual narrators. Bravo!! I was not very familiar with either one of these narrators, but they both did a great job.
As for the story, by now we are very familiar with Dean and Allie based on the first 2 books. However, this story really does a great job of delving into each character and building all the layers. The author develops the characters so well that there I times that I don't like them and there are times when I love them. They both go through a lot of self realization and self questioning, but not to the point that I am thinking, "Please get over yourself", which happens more often than I would like with other authors.
In the end you get the HEA, but its not the HEA you expect... which I think makes it better.
"A Perfect Score"
The combination of a great new adult love story and a new narration team makes this the perfect score. I've really enjoyed the series so far, I think they keep getting better with each one.
"Better than expected"
This book is the best that I have heard in a long time. It even had me laughing out loud. I have listened to and read so many romance novels that they have become predictable. But this one threw many surprises in to keep me wanting more.
i honestly listen because i don't really have much time, this narration was great.
both of them. they had great chemistry
"4.5 Score Stars"
Even though it’s been months? Since I read any of these, you feel like you just put down the last book. I think I love that about this series. They stick with you even so long after.
I feel like I should say this book was about growing pains. And sometimes I thought god they are so immature, but then I think about how old they are and it makes sense.
Allie I really thought was immature through a good part of the book but like I said I have to think about how old she is and everything she has been through.
Who cares if she whines a little bit here and there? I think the girl deserves it, her life hasn't been overly hard but it hasn't been easy either.
So I had to say Pam think about it from her point of view. This is her last year in College she is just enjoying the experience.
We also have Dean.. I tell you I wanted to smack the boy, haha but he grew up as did Allie. I loved the connection and the heat between these two. You can’t deny how good they are for each other.
I think this might be a re reader for me because it just left me feeling good at the end.
Also LOVED, the heck out of the narration, Savannah and Andrew do a wonderful job bringing this audio to life in my ears. They portray the characters so well.
*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*
"Kennedy delivers again! Great collegiate romance!"
Kennedy has a knack for writing young adult novels, but making keeping them relevant and entertaining for this 50ish person. I enjoy this series very much and based on some of the secondary characters in this book, I can look forward to other books in this series.
Allie and Dean's story (centered at Briar) starts with him respecting her as his roommates girlfriends best friend; Allie thinks of him as a man whore just out to have sex with anything that moves. Their relationship evolves from rebound sex for her and good sex for him to the realization that they have a lustful need for each her that further develops as they both battle to determine what happens after graduation.
I recommend reading this book for purchase, coveted credit or sale!!
This was a great book! The narrators were perfect! It also had me laughing out loud several times!! I didn't listen to the first two in the series due to reviews on bad narrators but it's perfect as a standalone without the previous ones!
"turned out a decent read."
i wasnt that into this in the beginning but it ended up not too bad. Not amazing but if you got it on sale it would be worth the money you spent on it if you get my drift?
I have loved this entire series!! I don't even have a favorite couple. I love them all!! This book made me laugh more than the others and I mean I really laugjed!!
I love Elle Kennedy and her Off Campus series. My disappointment with the narration of the first two books in this series was almost palatable, but thankfully the Audio Gods listened and found two decent authors to do this book justice!
Bring on the audio for The Goal!!!!
