    One thought on “For the Win”

    1. By some tricky step of fate, London Miller finds herself on assignment to interview hot stuff-Cooper Montgomery, a rising star of the baseball team, for the school newspaper.London is easy to like, if you like a bookishly cute heroine who speaks her mind, but is still just as vulnerable to mean girls as she is a champion of all girls who have to survive the charms of boys like Cooper.Sometimes the hardest person in the world to be is yourself.Cooper comes into his own when he meets London. He in [...]

    2. *I was given an ARC for an honest review*This review may contain spoilersThere was that dimpled smile again. God it was cute. "What kind of Boyfriend would i be if i abandoned you when you needed me most?" "B-Boyfriend?" The air left me, and I swayed a little to the side. Cooper circled his arms around my waist. "Yeah. That's what it's called, you know? When your'e seeing someone and you really like them, and you don't want them seeing anyone else, are you, London?" I shook my head. "Do you want [...]

    3. For the Win is another excellent, well written, novel from Amber Garza. While Engraved, The Prowl Trilogy and Cuts Run Deep are amongst my favorite books, For the Win is different. I usually do not read novels like For the Win. While I love YA sports stories, For the Win has a twist I think is overwritten. Yet, I could not stop thinking about this story. Here's why.London is a likeable teen heroine. She's strong, intelligent, mature beyond her years - in a good way, and a bookworm. Cooper is eve [...]

    4. What a sweet, sweet book. I don't usually ever read YA, but I went into this not realizing it was, and I am glad that I read it. Cooper was one of those perfect heroes, he was so lovable and he made this book so enjoyable. I am a sucker for the books where the "it" guy falls for the nerd girld London was a nerd. This book definitely had a "Walk to Remember" vibe going on and at times I was scared in what direction this book would take. This was not a cliff hanger, but there is a continuation in [...]

    5. Better than the 1st one. More focused & it showed what a long distance relationship feels like. Related to it & loved it♥️ bravo

    6. This started off as a sweet story of two teens, each resistant to romantic relationships because of tragedy in their pasts. Cooper, a baseball phenom, is the quintessential player, although he hates that label. The death of his parents at a young age makes him afraid to get close to anyone again. London is the shy girl with journalism on her mind who has suffered such a tragic loss that she tries to hide herself from the world. But London's ambitions throw her into Cooper's path when she's assig [...]

    7. I liked this book and give it a solid three stars. This book had the chance to be really amazing but it just never really went there. The characters were great and likeable. I particularly liked London, she reminded me of me when I was younger. I didn't really warm up to Cooper, he seemed a bit immature to me, even at the end. But you can't love everybody ;)There were really few though. London had only one friend and Cooper despite being popular only had one good friend too. And of course the an [...]

    8. This was a pretty great read. Amber Garza's books usually are. This book is about two people who find each other and help them become better people. London learns to trust in people again and to come out of the shell her past put her in. She learned to live life to the fullest instead of being scared of it. Cooper was a little harder for me to like. In the beginning he was immature and kind of a jerk. Once he met London and really let her in he became more likable. Cooper really grew up and real [...]

    9. 3.5 starsI know I was supposed to write a full review but I procrastinated :(And during my big cleanup in prep for the holidays, I misplaced my notes :'(So it's just a quickie review this time aroundFor the Win was fairly easy to get into and held my attention for the most-part. Although it didn't wow me, I wasn't bored and I liked the characters, however I did find the story a little predictable overall.Considering I'm not a huge sports fan, I liked this baseball themed read. 3.5 stars :)

    10. Received a complimentary copy for an honest review. I knew it was gonna be good. Amber's books are always good. This story was about 2 people who help change each other for the better. One becomes more aware of his surroundings and grows up and the other comes out of her shell and learns to trust and liveBut, then let's throw in the gut punch. All I'm going to say is have a BIG box of kleenex handy to wipe the tears & blow the nose. Because you want to be proactive in being able to see and f [...]

    11. Loved the sports angle of this one, plus it was a sweet romance like every Garza book. There were definitely some interesting twists. Can't wait to see what happens next. I really liked London, I connected to her really easily.

    12. Man i thought i was done with Lurlene McDaniel type books in jr highrget how it hits me loooveee Cooper best book bfseven if this book was ya

    13. I really don't know what to rate this. It was a sweet story but I need to know what happens later. I hope there is more for them.

    14. Sensitive Subject Matter For Some ReadersThere are 'aha' moments in books that just shouldn't be ruined in reviews and blurbs; I mean you don't really want to know that it was Scarlet with the pipe in the study before the read, right? BUT, then there are elements in books, which may be shockers for the plot, but that can also be potential triggers for readers. The latter deserves a fair warning from the author, which this book's blurb in no way provided! I know that I highly doubt I would've rea [...]

    15. This is a great YA book that will take a reader through emotions you won't see coming. I mean, WOW! Amber Garza had me laughing then crying and just swiping page after page to know what would happen to London and Cooper. This story did not go the way you would shall i say expect the story line to proceed and I'm extremely satisfied with the way Garza took this book. Not wanting to reveal anything so you can be as taken with this book as I was, let's just say sometimes life throws you lemons and [...]

    16. For The Win was a fantastic YA book that immediately grabbed me from the very first page. I couldn't help but fall in love with London and Copper. With the dual POVs, I was able to connect with both characters on a deeper level. Amber always seems to do such a wonderful job with that. She always creates characters I love. I even loved Dexter, London's dad!!!! I adored these characters and wanted all of them to get their happy endings. The character development was spot on. They make huge changes [...]

    17. 4.5 starsShe needed me. And more than that, I needed her. I'd connected with her more than I'd ever connected with anyone else. Even if what we had didn't last forever, I knew I'd never regret the time I spent with her.I loved this one! So so love it! It is not going in my favorites list but Amber Garza did a really good job in this one. This kind of reminded me of A Walk To Remember without the dying part. For The Win is a sweet, mature, and touching story. I did not expect the turn of events a [...]

    18. My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. An Overview of the Novel: I'm not going to give anything away, but that is going to be really hard.London wants to be a writer, that's it. She's dreamed of nothing else for years. And so when she gets assigned to cover an article on Cooper, she has no choice but to accept and to write a good article. Cooper is an incredible baseball players and everybody knows it, including all the girls. London doesn't like how he treats them and is determined to stay away from him. [...]

    19. First off let me say, Amber Garza holds my heart. Every novel of hers leaves me satisfied and a tale I’ll never forget and I received this for a completely honest review. This is a fantastic YA novel that will bring out emotions that other novels can’t. I couldn’t stop reading, even though I knew I had to get up early the next morning and have two rambunctious kids to take care of! I didn’t know what to expect going into this novel and I love that Garza is so unexpected. London hides wor [...]

    20. You know when you start a book and the first page catches your mind and heart? Well that is this book. Automatically I knew I would love it and I did. There is always something with Amber Garza's books that grab not only attention but your entire being. You feel every emotion with the character. When their hearts break, you feel it, when there is happiness, you enjoy the ride with them, and when there is turmoil you know for a fact your stomach is in knots with anxiety.The love in this portrayed [...]

    21. For the Win is a YA. The characters, Cooper and London are two very different people, experiencing high school in very different ways. Cooper is your typical "Jock". He is super focused on his baseball because he knows that he has what it takes to make it to the pros. Yet, Cooper is still that typical boy who is easily taken by a pretty girl and a serious relationship is no where on his radar. London is the shy bookworm who just wants to blend into the background, survive high school, and escape [...]

    22. For the Win pulled me in. I could not stop reading.London is the only child to a single father, after losing her mother when she was 5 years old. She is bullied at school and this only adds to her cold and untrusting attitude. You feel for the girl. You want to stand up for her against the bullies.Cooper is a popular kid with dreams of becoming a professional baseball player. Orphaned at the age of 10, he lives with his grandparents.Cooper and London are both opposite but also the same. They are [...]

    23. Amber has quickky gone from "who is that?", to "Oh my God, I have to read everything she has ever written!!!". I was thrilled to receive an ARC of this book to review. NA is my favorite genre, and when you add in the aspect of baseball, I will devour the book. Like, literally sit down and read every. single. word, DEVOUR it. This is a beautiful story of two teens finding that everything they thought they knew about one another isn't quite what it seems. It is a story of finding love and acceptan [...]

    24. 1.5 stars rounded to 2.To be honest, I didn't really like this book. I didn't like London. She was weak and scared. Cooper wasn't very likable either. Hearing about the way he uses girls made me remember why I don't like YA. I'd rather not hear about that- the casual sex, jealousy over stupid crap, cheating, etc. Not to say that all of those things happened in this book, I just don't want to read about it. Let it stay in the hazy, ambiguous past of NA characters. That's fine with me.This book is [...]

    25. kellisreviews/201For The Win has been in my "To Be Reviewed" pile for a while, and for that I apologize to Amber Garza. It was not my intention to take so long to review this book, however I was in my last semesters of school and busting my behind. However, now it is done!London Miller and her dad Dexter have a great relationship. They lost London's mom years ago, and have never forgotten her. London would rather spend time in her books, curling up in bed reading her Kindle until the wee hours o [...]

    26. Amber Garza has done it again. She takes real live issues and blends them into a great story. This story brought so many emotions in me. One minute I'm laughing along with the characters, than I get angry at another character and than I'm having a seriously ugly cry. Cooper is you all around jock who can have any girl he wants,His whole life revolves around baseball and being a playboy so so speak but when he is asked to do a interview for the school paper by a girl he barley knew excited, he so [...]

    27. I have read other books of Ambers since i discovered her books a few weeks ago. I recieved an ARC of this book and I couldnt wait to start it. First of all I love books that have pov from the male and female characters of the book. It gave insight into what both were thinking instead of having to wonder of guess. I loved the Witty remarks and that London the lead female was just real. She is a normal girl and in a lot of ways I connected with her because she reminded me of myself. This wasn't a [...]
