Leader of the pack and Sex ,lie and online dating

Leader of the pack by Kate Cann

Sinopsis :

Being hard is what Jack Slade is all about. He has no time for weaklings, especially not on his team. He is captain, and his new coach has helped him realize that anything that interferes with his game is not worth his time. Gem doesn't see it that way, though. She fancies Jack like mad, but she doesn't want to be second best and neither does her best friend, Christian, who thinks Jack is just a meathead. Gem knows there is more to Jack, but she doesn't know if that is enough to keep them together...

After seeing a interview of Kate Cann on my favorite book
and i decided to give it a try .
It was the first time i read a YA book since my teen age years and i really enjoyed it.
I am not a big fan of rugby and even less of the hero but even with those flaws K-Cann managed to keep me entertained.
Teen age angst is very well written and she doesn't shy or embellished sex ,she just tell it like it is ,which at this age ,is fast,not always good and done a bit everywhere as long as it is done.
The reason i probably didn't like Jack was probably because he was too close to reality ,he is very selfish and by the end of the book didn't seems to have grown ,not once he show remorse for what Gem has to endure .
I will definitely read more of her book and summer seems like the perfect time.
Grade :2/5

Sex ,lie and online dating by Rachel Gibson

synopsis :

Quinn McIntyre has to pose as an internet dater to woo the chief suspect in a serial murder case, and the last thing on his mind is falling in love. Especially not to a thriller writer researching her next book, who doesn't even realise she's under surveillance! But Lucy Rothschild just doesn't seem like the killing kind! does she? Before too long, and against all his better instincts, Quinn finds he could be getting in too deep!

Rachel Gibson is a bit of a comfort read for me ,nothing transcending but always entertaining .
This one did not work for me ,it's not bad just blah .
I was not interested in anything ,not the mystery and not the romance.
grade :1/5
