Liveandlove10 ↠ 7 reviewRacter s development I would have liked special or just basic moments between the characters to get to know them better to get a sense of what they had in common why they were riends etc I also didn t like the relationship between Claire and Adam THEre WERE CUTE MOMENTS THOUGH BOY THEY WERE CUTE But the relationship in itself elt empty not based on anything solid and everything elt rushed Their ights were unnatural to me as if they didn t need a good reason to ight but they just had to or the sake of the plot not really The characters also didn t really any depth in my opinion Claire was childish and her younger brother made me think the entire book that he should have been older because he was way mature that she was It was like everything became a reason to complain and get mad even when there was no real reason I would have liked to get to know Riley and Tate a little bit too I gave the second star or the absolutely delightful sarcastic conversations between Claire and Adam and because of the cute moments Full review on Flipping Through the PagesActual rating 35 starsSurviving Adam Meade was a kind of swoony read You know the stories where the girl is attracted to the bad boy and we all actually like that douche The Best Canadian Animal Stories: Classic Tales by Master Storytellers faced bad guy because of his attitude though he is brokenrom inside Well yeah I basically summed up the story in two lines Except not This story was about chasing your dreams too I really enjoyed the book overallThis story is about Claire Collins who has moved to a new town in her senior year thanks to her dad who is a The Vagabonds football coach She is trying toorget her past and to move on She never again wanted to The Gilgul of Park Avenue fallor a guy who plays The Last of the Renshai football but then she meets Adam Meade who is in theootball team coached by her Even Eagles Need a Push: Learning to Soar in a Changing World father Claire just wanted to graduate and go to Auburn her dream school but Adam Meade turns out to be an unexpected thing in her life Adam is the star of the high school sootball team and basically the most popular guy in the school Claire and Adam are like enemies and both get under the skin of each other Both are stubborn and strong willed but what happens next is something to look out orWhat I Liked For the starters the initial plot of the story was uite realistic Claire moved to a new town in her inal year leaving her riends there and also aced a terrible breakup I think this was something that most teens can relate to really well In my opinion the life of high school was portrayed pretty well Adam was certainly a At Sixes and Sevens favorite character He was popular and always tried to show himself as a strong person But when he met Claire and realized that he wasn t able to woo her by his charm like other girls he was really irritated But soon he started showing his vulnerable side to her Claire actually came out as a strong character She tried to hold her life together after a messy player and to a great extent she was able to I really loved how she wasocused on her dream school and wanted to get there on any condition We get to see rare teens in YA these days who are actually The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole focused on theiruture I really liked how much she was motivated and determined I personally love hate to love romance trope and I enjoyed all the heated banter between Claire and Adam Both were stubborn though they had chemistry The Last Honest Man: Mordecai Richler: An Oral Biography from the beginning What started as heated arguments and sarcastic comments soon turns to something passionate Apartrom all the swoony things we also get to see the various problems through which both Claire and Adam were going through While Claire was trying to The Catholic Home forget and her past and was trying to adjust to the new world Adam had things related to heramily I really appreciate the author Sarah Binks for showing the senior year challenges in a realistic way All the challenges likeilling applications going to college visits deciding on long term relationships all elt real and relevantWhat I didn t like The biggest problem that I had with this story was its speed It was way too ast and at times it Too Many Puppies! felt as if it missed so many days and weeks in between Ielt that this book could have been a little longer to miss out some basic details One moment it was like Monday and the next chapter was moving two weeks after The storyline definitely The Wanderers felt all over the place Ielt that character development was okay but it could have been better The depth was missing The Last Dickens from the characters Ielt that the relationship between Claire and Adam was too rushed I wanted them to be Standing for Something: 10 Neglected Virtues That Will Heal Our Hearts and Homes friendsirst SO THAT THEY KNOW EACH OTHER that they know each other but I think within the length of the book this was all we could have gotten The ending was not my Takedown: The Fall of the Last Mafia Empire favorite but considering that there is a next book in the series I am hoping that the story would take a better turnOverall I enjoyed this book This can be a perfect beach side companion or a summer read If you love YA contemporary definitely give this book a try It s a uick and engaging read that will make you laugh and smile in eual measuresBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Pinterest Google Rating 45 StarsYep I am writing this review with aew happy tears in my eyes Surviving Adam Meade did a great job of hitting me right in Meade did a great job of hitting me right in eelsWho Claire the coaches daughter and resident new girl who was still trying to recover rom a broken heart Her goal was to get into the college of her choice and avoid boys especially Diamantmysteriet football players at all costs Adam the uarterback and residentootball hero who shunned most attachments in order to ocus on his goals ootball a championship and college WhatThough they both wanted to keep it si.

D it s hate to love and it s hilarious and swoony to watch The beginning is a little rocky these two seriously did not get along but they start to be nicer while still sarcastic and banter y to each other There is instant tension and chemistry but not insta love in my opinion I liked Claire her drive to get to college her steadfastness about Auburn and how she wanted a healthy relationship with Adam after her disaster of a ormerly healthy relationship with a guy at her previous school I connected with Claire because she is so motivated and determinedI liked Adam even though he is a player and a little annoying at irst He has a lot of confidence which I love and he s actually a sweet and decent guy There are a lot of layers to him it s not just the star Torrent of Portyngale: Re-Edited from the Unique Ms. in the Chetham Library, Manchester (Classic Reprint) football player that you seeThis isn t just a romance novel or a high school drama or teen angst novel There is very little drama and I liked the high school setting and the high school conflicts This novel really workedor me and brought back memories of high school which was The Pocket Mommy five years agoor me yikes Anyway it s not just about the romance Adam has his own personal problems Claire has her past to reconcile and of course there is the uture with collegeBelieve it or not the ending is a HEA I was pretty pleased with it I honestly didn t think it would end super well these types of novels always have a bittersweet ending But it was goodWhat I Did Not LikeI wanted swoonssss There were actually a ew and they were scattered throughout the story Maybe this novel might have As If Being 12 3/4 Isnt Bad Enough, My Mother Is Running for President!

I was really excited to read this Counting down the days to it s release But it was a major let down The Everyman Book of Nonsense Verse from the beginning The moment Adam tells her she ll be replaced if she can t manage to bring ice on theield I wasn t eeling him or his attitude From there they immediately didn t like each other Which wasn t surprising or upsetting Adam acted like a jerk 90% of the time and Claire was rather whiny She talks a lot about the demise of her previous relationship without much detail to help us understand why she was so heartbroken so it s really repetitive For about half the book she s determined to go visit the old town in order to see her ex but once she an Adam have a near kiss in the locker room all her attention is on him instead That was confusing because it isn t exactly clear when they start becoming riendly than Ten Years Beyond Baker Street: friends or why It just kind of happens one night at Tate s place I didn teel their chemistry honestly It came off like a story about how a boy is mean on the playground but that means he likes youSaid boy also had a lot of sad background story I didn t like either With his cancer ridden grandmother and deceased parentssister I elt like it was used as an excuse or why he s so bitchy than anything else Then Clair s big thing was the whole heartbreak That wasn t explained much beyond that she and Seth had been together since early high school and planned on attending the same collage It seems unrealistic to me that they wouldn t end up working it out not after being together The Essential Library for New Moms 4-Book Bundle: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child; The Baby Food Bible; Infant Massage; Colic Solved for 3 years and ending up at the same collage But she meets Adam who is a dick let s be real so she ignores Seth trying toix things I know it s a story about teenagers but when I was a teenager and thought I was in love with someone I didn t rush into new relationships mere months later Most women don t So it s basically a book about how a girl rebounds a jackass But it s cool cause he s southern and cute UghI m also annoyed that the cover or this book was used on another authors book as well This was the classic high school love kind of book A uick and enjoyable reading between those periods you re still influenced about a great book and need a break rom all those eelings it s nothing too much drama and a lot of easy and un momentsi liked it because of its simplicityI gave it 35 stars I m in a bit of a reading slump so I switched back to YA or a bitThis one has many cute one liners but these two go getters sometimes go a bit overboard in their verbal sparring Nevertheless the story was often cute but we ve been here before The writing was good and the author did try to inject a bit of realism in the story Relationships ARE hard and no woman should lose herself and ollow her partner in all things in order to keep things happy Into every life a little rain must NYCTaxiCabTales.com: Taxi Stories from streets of NYC fall etc I m scoring this one a 35 out of 5 Review posted on The Eater of Books blogSurviving Adam Meade by Shannon KlarePublisher Swoon ReadsPublication Date August 14 2018Rating 4 starsSource ARC sent by the publisherSummaryrom GoodreadsSeventeen year old Claire Collins has a plan get into college and leave North Carolina behind What she doesn t have is an idea The Wrong Side of the Bed for how to get rid of the localootball star and womanizer extraordinaire Adam Meade who she can t even avoid despite many efforts because Claire s dad is the high school The Alvin Ho Super Collection: Books 1-4 football coachSeventeen year old Adam Meade neverails He always gets what he wants until he meets Claire the new girl who leaves him unnerved pissed off and
