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. ADD TO GOODREADSPurchase Links

A mature YA/Early NA novel, The Tenth Girl is a nice, light and fluffy read like a perfect marshmallow. However when Cain & Harper meet in this story things will get toasty REAL QUICK🔥

Enemies to lovers and a sports romance all in one, this one is a great read!!

This book is a good enemies to lover story. All about the dramas and trials of high school. Cain is the star QB and the team made a bet freshman year to have sex with 10 girls by graduation day. Who other than Cain would be in the lead of course? He’s all set to get his final notch in his bedpost..

That is until new girl Harper Posy throws him for a loop when she calls his arrogant ass out in class for the jerk that he is. She’s smart mouthed and has no calms about putting Cain in his place. She knows his type and swears nothing will happen between them, no matter how much chemistry they have. It’s a battle of wills as Harper wants to be as far away from Cain as possible, While Cain is putting out all his best tactics to get her attention the way he wants it.

The book is instalove at its finest, which depending on how it’s written can either work/ not work for me. In this book it just didn’t work. While I thought Cain & Harper had some chemistry, their just characters weren’t consistent through the book. Cain was purely cruel bad boy one minute & perfect romance the next, while Harper was sassy and then needy and desperate for Cain in the same chapter.

It’s a pretty light read besides some minor drama scenes that would be typical in a high school such as this. It was hard for me to get into it as first,but I liked the book better towards the middle/ end once the characters started to be consistent. Overall it was a good read and I would love to read more of Carrie Aarons books!

My Rating: 4/5 Stars
