The Tenth Girl Release Blitz with ARC Review!

Title: The Tenth Girl
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult/Young Adult
Release Date: September 9, 2018


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. 


I have to admit, this book made me equal parts angry and tender. Reading this made me think back to high school and sure, it brought back...not so good memories, but I also felt like I had a redo. The Tenth Girl was a superb surprise. Cain is frustrating, cocky and arrogant as most popular boys are, but he was also good. Maybe not in the IN YOUR FACE kind, but in the little things he did, which really softened me toward him. Harper reminded me a bit of myself in school. She is sassy, sweet, cares about school. She is SO likable!

The Tenth Girl wasn't exactly what I imagined it to be yet it turned out to be pretty extraordinary anyway. It has some high school drama, plenty of sizzling heat, spectacular characters, a memorable plot and a romance that is essentially strong, young and perfect. I really enjoyed this book!
