Through the PagesActual ating 35 starsSurviving Adam Meade was a kind of swoony ead You know the stories where the girl is attracted to the bad boy and we all actually like that douche faced bad guy because of his attitude though he is broken from inside Well yeah I basically summed up the story in two lines Except not This story was about chasing your dreams too I The Ippos King 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 football coach She is trying to forget her past and to move on She never again wanted to fall for a guy who plays football but then she meets Adam Meade who is in the football team coached by her 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 s football 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 forWhat I Liked For the starters the initial plot of the story was uiteealistic Claire moved to a new town in her final year leaving her friends there and also faced a terrible breakup I think this was something that most teens can Finding Caruso relate toeally well In my opinion the life of high school was portrayed pretty well Adam was certainly a favorite character He was popular and always tried to show himself as a strong person But when he met Claire and Fat Lives realized that he wasn t able to woo her by his charm like other girls he waseally 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 Số phận chú bé đánh trống really loved how she was focused on her dream school and wanted to get there on any condition We get to seeare teens in YA these days who are actually focused on their future I A Southern Moderate in Radical Times: Henry Washington Hilliard, 1808-1892 really liked how much she was motivated and determined I personally love hate to loveomance trope and I enjoyed all the heated banter between Claire and Adam Both were stubborn though they had chemistry from the beginning What started as heated arguments and sarcastic comments soon turns to something passionate Apart from 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 forget and her past and was trying to adjust to the new world Adam had things Iran related to her family Ieally appreciate the author for showing the senior year challenges in a Tagebuch realistic way All the challenges like filling applications going to college visits deciding on long termelationships all felt eal and elevantWhat I didn t like The biggest problem that I had with this story was its speed It was way too fast and at times it felt as if it missed so many days and weeks in between I felt 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 felt all over the place I felt that character development was okay but it could have been better The depth was missing from the characters I felt that the elationship between Claire and Adam was too ushed I wanted them to be friends first so that they know each other better but I think within the length of the book this was all we could have gotten The ending was not my 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 Access to English.

let go I myself totally captivated by Adam and Claire s story One of the very first things I noted was how much I loved the banter And I am not just talking about that which occurred between Adam and Claire but like how all the characters interacted There was a fun ease between them which I eally loved When I was eading the exchanges between Claire and her family I could almost hear my own dad s and sister s voicesClaire was the character we knew a lot about in the beginning We didn t know all the details but we knew she suffered a omantic loss as well as a loss of her friends and her status due to her family s move but Adam was of a mystery He was uite complex and the details and depth of his character were slowly evealed layer by layer I won t pretend his story didn t break my heart because it did There were these little details Klare gave us that had me thinking one way or the other but the The Witch who was a princess real story broke me even Then we had Claire and Adam who sort of made me nuts at times but I still adored There was tension between them immediately and it was easy to see how this was moving from irritation to attraction The push and pull kept me on edge and I kept wondering when they would act on it I loved every delicious second of it I also liked the way the.

adult novel about two strong willed people who think they know what theynovel about two strong willed people who think they know what they but have no idea what they needWhat I LikedThis book is still four months out but I couldn t not jump at the chance to ead it as soon as possible I actually gave it a go in February because I had been excited about it long before I got a The A-List Diet Fitness Plan review copy This isare for me I m not a huge fan of YA contemporary novels But something about this one appealed to me And I enjoyed the bookClaire Collins has But something about this one appealed to me And I enjoyed the bookClaire Collins has times than she d like thanks to her dad being a football coach Her new school is pretty great she has made new friends her younger brother fits in on the football team coached by their dad Claire wants nothing than to graduate and go to Auburn her dream school and leave her past behind She didn t plan on Adam Meade entering her life Adam is the star B of the high school s football team and he gets under Claire s skin Claire gets under his skin like no other What happens when sparks fly between two stubborn strong willed teensThere was sooo much banter and sarcastic exchanges in this book Adam and Claire have chemistry from the start and this leads to a lot of heated banter There is tension between them and it manifests as irritation first and then something passionate I personally adore hate to love The Amethyst Road romances so I was ALL for this There is a slight forbidden trope too as Claire previously dated a football uarterback at her former high school and Adam is the uarterback at her new high school Even though her dad is a football coach her brother plays football and she has been around football her entire life she doesn t want to date a football player again She wants to graduate and go to college and start fresh So Adam is a bit forbidden and even though she is very attracted to him she doesn t want to want him At firstI love how theomance progressed Like I said it s hate to love and it s hilarious and swoony to watch The beginning is a little ocky 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 elationship with Adam after her disaster of a formerly healthy The Lupus Encyclopedia: A Comprehensive Guide for Patients and Families relationship with a guy at her previous school I connected with Clair. Seventeen year old Claire Collins has a plan get into college and leave North Carolina behind What she doesn’t have is an idea for how to getid of the local football star and womanizer extraordinaire Adam Meade who she can’t even avoid despite ma. E because she is so motivated and determinedI liked Adam even though he is a player and a little annoying at first 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 football player that you seeThis isn t just a omance 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 Sextus: Ou, Le Romain Des Maremmes: Suivi D'Essais Detaches Sur L'Italie: Par M. Me Hortense Allart de Therase really worked for me and brought back memories of high school which was five years ago for me yikes Anyway it s not just about theomance Adam has his own personal problems Claire has her past to Die Zarin reconcile and of course there is the future 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 few and they were scattered throughout the story Maybe this novel might have functioned well as a New Adult novel It was great as YA though but I feel like with all of the tension and chemistry that Adam and Claire had the author could have taken thiselationship places I m just sayingWould I Recommend ItIf you love YA contemporary definitely give this book a shot I tend to only gravitate towards and enjoy the Meaning in History: The Theological Implications of the Philosophy of History romance y YA contemporary novels and this was a veryomance y one I liked it a lot everyone might not though but it s worth a shot It s a uick engaging Will Gallows and the Snake-Bellied Troll read and I think people will either love it or hate it Hopefully love itRating4 stars I see it might be book one of two If there is a second novel I hope it s New Adult than Young Adult If you know what I mean I wouldn t mind seeing the college side of things DNF at 50%Useless information stuffed throughout without any character development or even their basic descriptionI hated the shallow characters and the MC is absolutely shitty She isn t fun or sarcastic She is mean and the only conversation she has with her brother is when they fight for the car Some scenes felt so forced and the bickering which the author thought would make the book adorable was absolutely childish and annoying First of all this book is way tooushed I would say it was too short but by the end I was so over the entire story Also why wasn t the last chapter an epilogue A six month time jump between chapters is a bit much The hate to love happens way to uick A true hate to love is slow with the characters slowly growing to tolerate appreciate and then eventually love each other Adam and Claire are already friendly within the first 10% of the story I totally loved this book Brooding arrogant male and female lead Nosferatu ready to knock him off his pedestal Where do I sign Adam Meade school uarterback goodlooking cockyude and a heartbreaker He is everything Claire Collins wants to avoid Her father has taken a new job which means they are moving yet again Claire loved her old school and her ex boyfriend Unfortunately he didn t want to do the whole long distance thing Claire is trying to mend her broken heart but because her dad is the football coach she can t get away from the team She wants her parents to let her visit her old school friends Her dad wants her to help out with the football practices Adam Meade wants his water girl to deliver it cold and so the fun begins Adam is a complex character who doesn t want anyone to get too close He is than meets the eye but his goal is to concentrate on football He wants a college scholarship and everything else is a distraction Surviving Adam #Meade Is Told From Claire S Point #is told from Claire s point view She isn t looking for love Her ex still has a hold on her heart She doesn t want a new set of friends or a new school but what she finds is a perfect fit Fate plays a hand to give her everything she didn t expect I Snuggle Up, Little One: A Treasury of Bedtime Stories really like stories that have a lovehateelationship and this one does it well I Nefertiti: Egypt's Sun Queen really liked the way the book is written and I couldn t predict what the characters were going to do There is similar storyline out there but this one has all theight twists and turns to make it uniue I loved every minute of it This is a great book It s easy to laugh with and kept me hooked 5 stars out of 5 I The Jive Talker received an ARC in exchange for an honesteview as part of the Xpresso Book Tours My date is August 16th Surviving Adam Meade is Shannon Klare s debut novel It tells the story of Claire Collins senior year The problem she had to change schools because of her dad s job She left behind her a past and a passion for football That was until she befriended Riley and met Adam MeadeHonestly this book could have used at least another hundred pages I spent half the book asking myself if I hadn t Gargantuan read over whole paragraphs because I couldn t believe everything was happening that fast I would have liked to have context and depth justifying explaining the characters actions Instead everything felt forced theelationships the friendships the character 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 friends etc I also didn t like the Wolfgang relationship between Claire and Adam THEre WERE CUTE MOMENTS THOUGH BOY THEY WERE CUTE But theelationship in itself felt empty not based on anything solid and everything felt Publishing Women: Salons, the Presses, and the Counter-Reformation in Sixteenth-Century Italy rushed Their fights were unnatural to me as if they didn t need a goodeason to fight #BUT THEY JUST HAD TO FOR THE SAKE OF #they just had to for the sake of plot not Wurr 3 (Wurr really The characters also didn teally 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 Кракатит reason to complain and get mad even when there was noeal Werewolf: The Apocalypse reason I would have liked to get to know Riley and Tate a little bit too I gave the second star for
