There are no mulligans in love.

Drew's life just got a whole lot harder. Her relationships are falling apart, her little sister is failing math, and her parents are leaving for Florida to take care of Grandpa. Now not only does she have to play surrogate parent, study to graduate from her last semester of college, and deal with the looming threat of full-on adulthood, she has to do it all while running the family's mini-golf course by herself. Even the upbeat Drew is starting to feel like she just drove her ball down the un-fairway.

Her luck takes a turn when she meets Weston, the snarky geometry teacher. He's smart, capable, dependable, and handsome—a real hole in one. But even Weston has a few hazards of his own. Now Drew will have to decide whether his secret is the wedge that drives them apart, or pushes them together.


A New Adult without all the angst....YAY!!  What a great romance Crystal Donahue has here.  ABOVE PAR was part sweet, with a splash of sexy and a whole lotta romance.  Drew was a great heroine, she was hard-working, tried her best to be a "good daughter/sister" and finally might have found the "Guy of her dreams"...But could he be hiding a secret?

Weston...Swoony Swoon...Who doesn't like a sexy geometry teacher with killer dimples!  I knew there was something fishy from the beginning, but I couldn't put my finger on it.  Crystal Donahue does a fabulous job at keeping us hanging on like a teenage girl to her first bad-boy crush.  But didn't DRAGGGGGG out the drama, it was a smooth ride the whole way through, a I thoroughly enjoyed the ride!

Highly recommended read from A Tasty Read and I will be on the lookout for more by Crystal Donahue in the future.  I am kinda hoping she will give Max and Stacey their own book...but only time will tell!!

Crystal Donahue has been fortunate to live all over the US, including but not limited to Arizona, Hawaii, and Georgia but she currently resides near the Iowa/Illinois border with her tornado obsessed son and their mischievous cat, Brownie. She is a procrastinator of epic proportions, finds humor in almost everything, loves sarcasm and loathes washing dishes.

A 2004 graduate of Western Illinois University, Crystal has held several unique jobs including driving a Zamboni and being a relay operator for the hearing and speech impaired. While working as a claims adjuster she realized life is too short not to do something that makes you happy, so she quit her job to go back to school and study nursing. Between work, school, and raising her son she somehow manages to find time to write too, usually to the detriment of her social life. Fortunately her friends and family rock so it isn't much of an issue... yet.
