Blog Tour: Offsides Series

Right Text, Wrong Number
Offsides Book 1
by Natalie Decker
Genre: YA Sports Contemporary Romance
306 pages
Cheerleader Layla and football player Tyler are complete opposites. She thinks
he’s the biggest jerk in school and he thinks she’s too high on her
horse to even be worth a second glance. When the two of them are near
one another, sparks fly in all the wrong directions. They can hardly
endure speaking, let alone dating.
But when Layla unknowingly sends Tyler a smack-down text meant for the
girl sending naked photos to her then-boyfriend, Adam, Tyler has no
idea it’s Layla and decides to play along. After all, Tyler cannot
resist messing with the pissed off girl firing off texts about junk
pictures, cheating, and girl code.
As the fallout from Adam’s scandalous texts plays out in front of the
entire school, Tyler and Layla secretly continue to text each other
using fake names. But as days and weeks pass, things take a turn for
the serious between them, and suddenly, their texts mean more. Maybe
it’s time to come clean about who they are and risk taking the
relationship from texts to dates, then kissing, and maybe more.
They say there’s a thin line between love and hate. Can reality live up to
the fantasy, or will Layla and Tyler be forever offsides?
Review: This sounded like a fun read, and I wasn’t disappointed! I”m picky about romance stories, and find myself drawn to YA most of the time. This one played with a well known cliche, and put a fun twist on it! It had more character development that I expected, but I feel the plot was rushed at the end, and not living up to it’s potential. That said, I enjoyed this one!
Right Kiss, Wrong Guy
Offsides Book 2
313 pages
You’d think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her
pick of boyfriends.
But Valentine’s Day sucks when you’re single. Just ask Juliet Valentine,
whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded
made-up holiday ever.
A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her
sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom’s match-making
business is doing great, and her school’s new fundraiser is
Juliet’s miserable, a little jealous, and lonely.
Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared
tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet
Valentine, he’s all but invisible. She isn’t impressed.
Jared’s never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before.
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and he’s determined to ask
Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to
have a shot with Layla’s sister.
Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won’t work on Juliet.
So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school’s
Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough,
Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone’s face.
Juliet won’t play his game.
Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it’s going to take a
Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.
Review:  After deciding to read the first one in this series, I went ahead and signed up for both. I didn’t like this one as much as the first. I think this has to do with my dislike of Juliet. I understand getting cheated on sucks, trust me, but I felt she took some of that out on Jared. That said, I enjoyed Jared’s part of the story, and most of the story was fun, I just felt like he deserved better in the end.
