THE TENTH GIRL by Carrie Aarons @AuthorCarrieA @GiveMeBooksBlog #NewRelease #NowAvailable #Review #TheUnratedBookshelf


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.

This story felt familiar to me. Coming from a small country town, I could relate to a lot of the culture, and mindsets. I loved Harper and Cain’s dynamic. They really did complete each other. This story may be the typical high school jock/ bad boy falls for good girl against all odds type of story, but it doesn’t feel that way when you read it. It feels fresh, and new. I really enjoyed every moment of this story. This author is amazingly talented at taking a specific trope and making it her own. I would definitely recommend this story to, pretty much, anybody. This is a must read. I am absolutely going to read this story more than once.
