Editorial Reviews


"This truly was an all-consuming read. From the moment I started reading, I couldn't put it down. It's a story of unexpected heroes, of overcoming the odds, the determination to win, and the power of love. The writing was addictive, the characters felt real, and the story swept me away. I loved every word and highly recommend it!"
~ Aestas Book Blog
"I'm just going to lead with the fact that THIS. BOOK. IS. INCREDIBLE. I can't remember the last book I read that completely captivated me the way THIS extraordinary book just did. This was my very first Ginger Scott book and within two or three pages I was absolutely addicted to her writing style. Within four or five pages I was absolutely consumed by this storyline. The cover screams sports romance. The prologue whispers of an emotional, difficult journey. The first chapter alludes to the potential for an enemies to lovers romance and, given all of that, I was sold. Within mere pages, I was sold. I fell in love with two characters and an author in a matter of moments and that love only grew exponentially with each turn of the page."
~ Jessica of Jessica & Angie's Dreamy Reads
"Ginger Scott brings us a story of a boy who doesn't back down from a challenge and the girl who stands by his side while, together, they defeat anything standing in their way. The Hard Count is my number one favorite read of 2016! 
~ Anne Mercier, Amazon Bestselling Author
"I haven't loved a football story this much since Friday Night Lights. The Hard Count is a wonderful in-depth story of love, family, and football. I found myself rooting for Nico and Reagan AND the Tigers!"
~ SD Hendrickson, Bestselling Author of The Mason List and the Upcoming My Lucky Days
"Intelligently written, emotionally charged, and brutally honest, The Hard Count is the touching story of two very different lives woven together by one common thread. An inspirational journey of two lost souls who discover not only their strengths and identities within their own worlds, but love unapologetic as it shatters the barriers between both. An absolute must read. Five stars!" 
- USA Today Bestselling Author, L.B. Simmons
"Scott has done it again, in an entirely new way! The Hard Count is a story of love, loss, self worth, acceptance, reflection and the dark side in all of us. It's a story that makes you laugh and cry and cheer, but most importantly, it's a story that makes you might just make you believe in people and the dream again."
~ Author Kristen Kehoe, Beyond The Horizon and The Vert Series
"It doesn't happen often, but every once in a while I findmyself completely blindsided by a book. Usually I lose myself in asweeping romance or marvel over a character's personal transformation, but sometimesthe story is just so touching and well-rounded that I can't help but add it tomy all-time favorites list. This is what I've found in The Hard Count."
~ Slow Readers Book Blog
"I'min love with this book, period. This was such a great read for me. As a sportsnerd and a huge football fan, this book was everything I expected it to be andthen some. This book reminded me why I love YA so much and why I should read YAmore often. The High School experiences, the anticipation, that first touch,the first kiss, the first love, this book had all of that, and I enjoyed everysecond of it."
~ The Sisterhood of the Traveling Book Boyfriends

About the Author

Ginger Scott is an Amazon-bestselling and Goodreads Choice Award-nominated author of several young and new adult romances, including Waiting on the Sidelines, Going Long, Blindness, How We Deal With Gravity, This Is Falling, You and Everything After, The Girl I Was Before, Wild Reckless, Wicked Restless and In Your Dreams. A sucker for a good romance, Ginger’s other passion is sports, and she often blends the two in her stories. (She’s also a sucker for a hot quarterback, catcher, pitcher, point guard…the list goes on.) Ginger has been writing and editing for newspapers, magazines and blogs for more than 15 years. She has told the stories of Olympians, politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals and towns. For more on her and her work, visit her website at When she's not writing, the odds are high that she's somewhere near a baseball diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork 'em, Devils).
