John Tucker was the quiet one of the Briar boys. He was the cook at the house, the one who took care of the other three. He was the baby faced Texan who endured much good hearted ribbing from his team when he decided to keep his playoff beard. He was Tucker. And then, in the end of Dean's book, The Score, Tuck dropped a bomb. He was having a baby with not just any girl, but Dean's nemesis and Beau's ex, Sabrina James.
What the what?!?!?
I went into The Goal knowing two things - one, Tucker had some tricks up his sleeve and two, I was going to have to re-live the very untimely loss of a beloved character.
Tucker and Sabrina were attracted to each other from the get go. Sabrina was never looking for a relationship with any man. She had no time for that. She was a full time college student working two jobs to pay for law school. Not just law school - Harvard Law. She was a young woman who knew what she wanted and wasn't going to let anyone stop her from getting to her goal. A better life than the one she was living. For a character who was not painted in the best light in the previous three Off Campus novels, Sabrina had a lot of work to make me like her. But after the first chapter from her POV, learning of her home life and what she was dealing with when she was not on the Briar campus, I was rooting for Sabrina. Rooting for her acceptance to Harvard. Sabrina needed someone who was going to have her back and take care of her. She won the jackpot when she decided to hook up with John Tucker.
Tuck is at a crossroad in his life. He's about to graduate college and start the next chapter. Two of his teammates, Garret and Logan, are off to play hockey. Dean is off to New York to coach at a prep school. The three of them are following their dreams. Tucker was stuck somewhere else. He feels a sense of commitment to return to Texas, open his own business and help his mother. After visiting her during the holidays, he is second guessing his plans. His home town is small and the thought of owning a realty business there is not the most exciting life he can think of.
As Tuck spends more time with Sabrina, he learns more about her life than anyone else at Briar knows. He wants to help her, take care of her and be there for her, if she would just let him. Their unplanned pregnancy flips both of their worlds upside down, leading Tuck and Sabrina down a path neither one of them are ready for.
There were some really funny moments. One when her friend was describing how she was catfishing on Instragram...“Ugh. He’s so gross.” “I signed up for a fake Instagram account so I can troll him. When he posts something, I’ll wait a day or so and then pop on to comment about how cool it is that he and my grandpa are rocking the same shirt. I’ve done that twice now and each time, I’ve seen him shoving the shirt down the apartment’s trash compactor.”" That was pretty darned funny.
I really enjoyed the date at the paint bar. When they were painting the nude model and the elderly couple were arguing...John once again showed his character in his words to the old man. "My man, your wife is gorgeous and obviously devoted to you. And Doris, Hiram here fought for his country to keep you and your children safe—think of how much he must love you for him to have done that. So let’s not fight, huh? Why don’t we just focus on painting this nice fellow over there and doing justice to his equipment?”"
