    Cute, quick, light read. Not very deep but still enjoyable.

    Fantasy Football is a hilarious Young Adult short read! I truly loved this book! Parker has this awesome "I won't take shit" attitude. She's had it somewhat hard the last few years, with her father passing away, and her mother not really being the greatest mom in the world, and to top it all off girls at school treat her really badly. So Parker gets this attitude and decides she's not going to put up with their crap, and she dishes out as much as she gets.

I really loved it when the three jocks started hanging out with Parker, and her best friend. It was really cool to see how they formed a new group together. Also in the end I love who Parker gets to be with, but I won't ruin that by mentioning more however it wasn't who I had originally thought it would be. I would like to read more about Parker and her friends, but I'm not sure if the book continues to second one or not, I will be trying to find out. The ending left it somewhat open, like maybe there could be more, or maybe not. Overall this book is a 4 out of 5 Stars!!

    Totally loved this book. The heroine was different then in other teenage romance books that I greatly appreciated. The guys were hilarious and the author kept me guessing in who was her secret admirer.

    I've been in the mood lately to reread some of the books I binge bought and read off Amazon during the time period I didn't bother really checking into Goodreads, so when I couldn't sleep last night rereading Fantasy Football seemed like a great way to pass the time. I really enjoyed this book, Parker has a funny, snarky voice as she tells her first person narrative of what happened after she became the school photographer senior year.

I really enjoyed this book, Parker has a funny, snarky voice as she tells her first person narrative of what happened after she became the school photographer senior year. While this story does include a love story and a secret admirer plot these are sort of background plots to the main tale of Parker realizing that people care. Over the course of the story she learns to forgive and to open herself up personal relationships with friends and family. Parker grew a lot over the course of the book and I really enjoyed reading her story again. If you're looking for a book that's all high school romance, this probably isn't the one you want. But if you'd like to read a story about a teen dealing with life after the loss of a parent and learning how to live again, I'd definitely recommend this tale.

    This was an "on the whim" choice book for myself. I can honestly picture Casey as Regina George from mean girls. Even though she was the newspaper editor, Casey was a bully and Parker was not the first person that was her target. Parker is like a lot of people out there, she doesn't trust people, not even her family. She has a past that is not sunshine and rainbows.

Parker slowly learns that some people you are able to trust, it just takes time and actions speak louder than words. At the end of the book, I thought she'd end up with someone else but at the same time, match mater had to show up again and everything feel into place. I'd recommend.

    I really liked this book. It had humor to it plus a good lesson on bullying. It had your stereotypical high school cliques. I really liked the heroine, she was a lot different than most you see in high school romances. It was a very enjoyable fun read. I would recommend for those who like to read teen romances.

    OK so honestly, I didn't think this book was all that but i liked it enough to finish it. This book is your typical high school cliché with the cheerleaders and jocks and Homecoming. There were parts of the story that were cheesy and parts that were funny. I enjoyed how Parker wasn't a pushover and stood up for herself. Overall I liked the book but I wasn't overly thrilled by it.

    This book had me laughing so hard. It was like one in the morning and I was just giggling reading certain parts. Especially when she had that dream about farting in gym while doing jumping jacks. I could not stop laughing. Cute book

    I decided to go with GoodReads two-star rating of “it was ok”. I guess Parker just rubbed me the wrong way. One character in the book described it well by saying she had an “ugly personality”. The reason I kept reading was because it seemed like she genuinely didn’t know how she was coming off and really did want to make some changes and become a nicer person. She lost her dad and had put up some pretty big walls, but I thought she came across as just as mean, if not meaner, than the “mean girls I decided to go with GoodReads two-star rating of “it was ok”.

She lost her dad and had put up some pretty big walls, but I thought she came across as just as mean, if not meaner, than the “mean girls” that she so desperately despised. But, at the same time there was something likable about her, maybe it was the fact that she was trying to change and does make progress. The ending wrapped up too quickly (and she ended up with someone I didn’t expect), and one of the girls she hated throughout the book becomes a good friend. I wouldn’t mind that storyline, but it seemed to come out of nowhere. I don’t know why YA authors write leading characters that don’t match up with the story. In this book for example, Parker starts off a loner with only one friend. Claims she isn’t pretty and dresses like a tomboy. By the end of the book she’s the prettiest girl on campus (and every guy has always thought so), wins homecoming queen and scores a super hot boyfriend. I guess it’s to show that maybe we see ourselves differently than the people around us. I just don’t see why we can’t have a normal lead for once. Someone who has normal amount of friends, is nice, has a good personality, isn’t afraid to admit their cute and ends up with someone who fits well with them. Can anyone recommend a book like that? Anyway, if you like story's with a high school setting than you might enjoy this. Content: Lots of swearing (I would have given it another star if it wasn't for the language), but otherwise clean.

Baseball; now that was my sport of interest. So this was really a good book to read after reading dark novels. It was a nice break and had some pretty funny moments. Now Parker normally keeps to herself but her senior year is turning out to be much different than expected. At first there is a hinted love triangle but Parker only has feelings for one of the guys and chooses him which made me feel better because it was the guy I was rooting for. I'm really glad LoGalbo didn't put in a triangle. That made me very happy. Parker was my kind of heroine. She did not give a shit. It was awesome. I also like the queen bitches of the school are called Barbie Bitches. That gave me a laugh. Now the only thing is this story is short. It stopped at 90% on my kindle. Kind of sucked but it was good because it was a HEA and wasn't OTT. I'm actually kind of glad Y picked the football book as he called it. It was a good break from dark novels. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Finished this last night. Review to come ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So after reading Comfort Food, I listed off a few books that I have on my kindle to Y and let him pick my next read. He choose the football book as he called it. After reading the blurb to this book again in my mind and thought maybe asking my fiance what to read after a dark novel was not the best idea. Well... shit... here goes nothing...

    Parker Collins is a whiz with a camera. She's able to capture the moment perfectly, especially when it comes to her high school's football games. While a bit of a loner, Parker has constant run-ins with Casey; the same girl who stole QB Trent from Parker's older sister.

Animosity runs deep between the two, so when Trent and the other football players begin to pay attention to Parker, Casey and her followers work to make Parker's life a living hell. Soon Parker has to pick between a number of vying boys and fight off Casey's antics. As a side, Parker is dealing with issues after her father's death, a despondent mother and two distant sisters. What I Thought: There was potential here but I felt it was poorly executed. For instance, in the beginning Parker makes a point of saying she and her sister's don't get along at all. But they seem pretty chummy and agreeable through most of the book. Or Parker talks about hating the football players but she still spends pretty much all her free time with them, not acting like she hates them at all. The other characters really aren't developed at all. I wanted to know more about them personally, instead of just the superfluous basics. Parker's personality is supposed to be caustic and aggressive. People mention it several times in the book, but her actions (for the most part) aren't really proof to that. I like books that both show and tell what a character is like. The dead father and grieving daughter could have been played up more. It was just an excuse for Parker to be a jerk - blame it on the absent parent. The title has nothing to do with the book, other than the fact that she photographs the football games.

    What worked: Parker's voice. While she doesn't sound like someone I would have wanted to be friends with in high school - seriously? all the "skank" talk? That wouldn't have sat well with me even in high school - she does sound like a teenager. So points for voice. What didn't work: awkward, awkward scene transitions.

I don't know why she was adopted by the team, I don't know why she cared. And it smacks too much of "I hang out with boys because girls are meanies", which is something I don't really care for. The story could flow better.

    Four stars may be a little generous but I did really like it. I think 3.5 is probably more fitting but since that is not an option... It definitely falls under the "light read" category. None of the characters were really well developed but they didn't feel lacking either. I thought Parker was amusing and I enjoyed the whole "who is her secret admirer" mystery. I also thought the resolution was nice though I could see how some might find it too convenient. Though it wasn't exactly a deep, though Four stars may be a little generous but I did really like it.

The bottom line: It was entertaining and I'm glad I read it but it's not going to make my faves list.

    This book wasn't too bad actually. Giving the rating that it has, I didn't expect much. Honestly it's not bad at all, granted the female lead is a cynic and smart ass, but sometimes that's awesome. The story is sorta slow and you hear often from the female lead (parker) how she thinks she's ugly, and then you find out she's one of the most beautiful in school. It should have given a little more in quite a few things but all in all it wasn't an awful story, worth a read.

    This was a cute book. Everything resolved a little too neatly and quickly for me. How her enemy became her best friend in a matter of seconds, how her relationship with her sisters automatically shifted, and her hate for Trent all but disappeared. The ending was unexpected and nice, I'm not sure if I would recommend this.

    For some reason this book I wasn't a big fan of. The story is sweet, but things happen to fast to make since. There were sections I was able just to skip because they weren't relevant to the overall story. It is not a book I will read again.

    Another book that began quite nicely, but went downhill from there... It's like the author used all of her wits, ideas and energy on a beginning and there was nothing left for the second half of the book... Disappointing.
