#NewRelease #Reviews THE TENTH GIRL by Carrie Aarons @GiveMeBooksBlog @AuthorCarrieA

Title: The Tenth Girl
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult/Young Adult
Release Date: September 9, 2018


Never play a game you can't win.

For Cain Kent, that rule is golden. Losing is not in his vocabulary, and up until now, everything has come easy. Football, school, girls ... his charm-laced ego may just be bigger than Texas itself.

The competition he started freshman year with his friends, to make ten notches each in their bedposts by graduation day, is practically in the bag. One more to go, and then it's off to college fame and eventually, the big time. Attachments aren't something he wants to form, but when the quiet new girl challenges him in front of his classmates, his curiosity is peaked. She would be the perfect final score, and what fun to break her in the process.

Too bad Harper Posy has no intention of being just another warm body, especially to the bad boy quarterback. Even if he does quote Forster and Huxley when no one is listening. An aspiring author herself, Cain and his hidden soft side are dangerous to her heart. She's seen men ruin her mother's dreams time and again, and she's determined to fly far away as soon as she has that diploma in her fist.

But as the school year’s end looms closer, both realize they didn’t quite understand the rules to begin with. Is winning a dirty bet worth the gamble when the stakes, or the other’s heart in this case, are so high?

Harper is the one girl who isn't up for playing games. And she just might make Cain lose. Everything. 


She may be the Tenth Girl but he is never going to work harder. 

The premise of The Tenth Girl is every high school girl's nightmare and yet we gobble these stories up. As a hopeless romantic, it is impossible not to need this story. To need the aches, pains, and heartache because let's be real, there is always heartache!

The Tenth Girl isn't hiding a surprise plot twist and yet you can't help but get caught in "the action". My money is on the new girl, in case you were wondering. This jock has met his match in every way and the best part is that he knows it.

Enjoy The Tenth Girl because we both know you always save the best for last!

After reading alot of small-town high school stores I've romanticised them in my head, you know bad boy jock falls for the good girl. If only it had been me.

This story could so easily have turned into cheesy and predictable but it didn't. The thing that saved it was the writing and the characters. I loved Harper and Cain, on paper they shouldn't work but they just do. A story full of teenage angst and emotions which I remember very well. This author seems to be able to turn her hand to any genre and do the subject justice.
