For A Different Experiencea different experience it was interesting The narration is pretty good Britney Gil managed to convey the excitement of the games it could have been boring if done wrong and I rather liked her voice for Emma though I wish the other voices had been distinctive But it was good all in all. Ship Who will make the final cut for a chance to stand on top of the winner’s podium in Vancouver To find out oin Jamie and Emma for the latest installment in the ongoing story of their lives loves and would be world championships in The Road to Canada book four of the bestselling seri. Reintegrate with characters as said goodbye over a year ago in Book "3 My Problem But "my problem but it I like my eggs sunny side up this felt over medium When I saw that the book was titled Road to Canada I didn t think much of it I should have As the book is that the road to Canada but not including the World Cup in Canada So since I didn t think hard enough about things the book kind of ended abruptly for me since I expected we d finally get to a world cup this time or both characters would I mean But enough about thatLet s see hmms looking at the series page apparently I ve rated all previous books in this series 5 stars and yet only rated this one 4 stars or accurately 375 To a certain extent that s because of the repetitive nature of the events in this book that has already been seen in previous books training camps More on the bubble angst More must not be seen touching or coach or accurately the federation will be pissed angst Repetitive But that s lifeI suppose the added part is where the two lead women are in their careers and some revelations Like how Emma is doing some really stupid shitEmma had been doing that lately making unilateral decisions about their public presentation and then getting irritated with Jamie when she dared disagreeNot communicating and allowing well You were supposed to freaking communicate with me Emma not let me get blindsided by someone else Oh and all the lying AgainSo sports related angst will I make the teamstay on the team relationship angst and stalker angst mostly lying about it angstI m not really sure how much of the book I got the book was originally set up to be about 318 pages in length which is comparable to other books in the series and the current
page count on Goodreads but says the Kindle is only 175 in length while thecount on Goodreads but says the Kindle is only 175 pages in while the is 224 Did we only get half the book this time or is wrong about the page count Rating 375March 10 2019 I love this series I m not so much a soccer fan as a fan of how Kate Christie writes about soccer we call it football here Reading about Jamie Maxwell Emma Blakeley and the others I find myself rooting for an imaginary team and it s kinda exciting and wonderfulThis is book 4 of the Girls of Summer series and it is definitely not a standalone If you haven t read them yet I d recommend starting at the beginning with Training Ground then Game Time and Outside the LinesWhen we first met Jamie and Emma they were teenagers and already crazy talented soccer players They went on to have very different careers Emma s dreams coming true uite uickly whereas Jamie had a much troubled path to navigateOne of the things I like best about GoS is how Jamie was stopped in her tracks by injury and her struggles to make it back to the top In this book. For both women For Jamie a new coach means a renewed shot at making the World Cup roster for the top ranked suad in the world For Emma the shift in priorities means that for the first time in her adult life she isn’t sure she’ll be on the field or even on the team for a major champion. .
Another great episode in the series This is another great episode in the girls of summer series More ups and downs are in store for Jamie Emma Okso maybe by book 5 the World Cup will actually happen Here s to hoping I enjoyed this installment but I will not lie and say this year and a half is dragging on FOREVER As much as I love the characters there is a bit of a drag in the reading as things progress but they progress slowly and things you think dont need to really be addressed are done with detail than needed HOWEVER I am enjoying the series and will not wait with everyone else for the next installment USA USA USAI got my chant down and everything After the 3rd book in the series Emma s and Jamie s story wouldn t leave me I couldn t get myself to start reading another book My mind kept coming back to them and wanted to know what would happen next and when will Emma finally tell the entire truth So I ended up waiting for the release of this book for weeks Checking if there was any news about when it was going to come out Luckily for me the wait only lasted 3 weeks s Another great audiobook read although this one felt a bit like a transition or intermediary novel in the series than the others did I m really looking forward to the next story when the girls finally get to the World Cup 375 stars "I consciously waited with 4 and 5 in this series till after the World Cup in France This way "consciously waited with 4 and 5 in this series till after the World Cup in France This way women s soccer withdrawal wasn t that blatant I really love the story of Emma and Jamie The ourney
Of Both Of Them Withboth of them with the ups and downs of a sports career the different views and feelings about being out and proud or stay in the closet playing professional soccer in different teams and all the challenges of a long distant relationshipBut after all these training camps I really hope and I mean REALLY HOPE the World Cup will be played in the next bookStill highly recommended to all sport and romance fansMy rating 45 stars Emma and Carrying the Greeks Heir jamie are relationship goals Iust finished reading this one and I don t honestly have much to add to my previous reviews on the series I still found myself totally absorbed while the issue I had with the previous bood did continue into the one I while the issue I had with the previous bood did continue into the one I thought we d end with the World Cup in Canada and was surprised when I realized I was over 90% of the way through and we weren t going there So maybe for those reasons it s like a 45 but the fact is that I was still ust wanting to read Even when there are other things I should have been doing so that definitely says somethingThe good news about the fact that this book didn t end with Canada is that there will be another book in the series I assume There d better be Really looking forward to this won as a prize Thanks Kate Found it hard to.
