 Red-hot author Miranda Kenneally hits one out of the park in this return to Catching Jordan's Hundred Oaks High.
Parker Shelton pretty much has the perfect life. She’s on her way to becoming valedictorian at Hundred Oaks High, she’s made the all-star softball team, and she has plenty of friends. Then her mother’s scandal rocks their small town and suddenly no one will talk to her.
Now Parker wants a new life.
So she quits softball. Drops twenty pounds. And she figures why kiss one guy when she can kiss three? Or four. Why limit herself to high school boys when the majorly cute new baseball coach seems especially flirty?
But how far is too far before she loses herself completely?

While I didn't love this one as much as its predecessor, Stealing Parker was still an enjoyable read.

What's different about this book is that Kenneally brings in the aspect of religion. At first, it seemed like your typical drama-filled younger girl falls in love with older man story that all turns out well in the end. But then there's also a lot of stuff to do with Parker's messed up family and how the church judged them. Parker contemplates a lot about God and the church and I thought it was interesting how Kenneally did that part of the book. She wasn't preaching or anything, it was just a part of the book, which I liked, as I'm not religious, so I don't particularly care for books that preach to me what I should believe. Thankfully, this is not one of those books.

All in all, I really enjoyed this book, but sadly not as much as I had liked Catching Jordan. The romance once again wasn't what is first expected and Kenneally did a great job in maintaining a balance between the romance and the sports and the family drama of the story.


Happy reading!
