The Hit List
Blurb (from Goodreads):
The Los Angeles Conservatory for the Arts is supposed to be a new beginning for Sadie Bryant. Moving across the country is exactly what she needs to escape the gossip surrounding her injury, the devastating betrayal of her ex-partner, and to rebuild her career as a solo dancer.

When the school announces that the annual Fall Showcase, a performance that secures a spot studying in London, will now require each dancer to have a partner, Sadie’s fresh start is a nightmare. Now she has to dance with Luke Morrison, the school womanizer with a big ego. Sadie doesn’t know how to trust Luke enough to dance with him after her last partner left her broken, but Luke is determined to change that.

Then, The Hit List comes out. A game of sexual conquest where guys get points for all the girls they hook up with—and it seems like every guy at the school is playing.

The girl worth the most points? Sadie.

The Hit List(I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Spencer Hill Contemporary and NetGalley.)

This was an okay contemporary dance story, but it didn’t hold my interest well.

Sadie was a girl who had issues, and you couldn’t really blame her considering what she’d been through. I did think she was maybe less introverted than I would have possibly been in the same situation though.

The storyline in this consisted of Sadie’s day-to-day activity during dance classes etc. with ‘Gossip Girl’ type online updates to the ‘Hit List’ game. I thought that Sadie took it quite well that her name was on the list really, and I did sort-of see where she was coming from when she was bothered that her name was taken off the list. While I personally wouldn’t want people thinking that I had slept with someone when I hadn’t, I also wouldn’t have wanted to see my name put back on the list! At least with your name crossed off you could be certain that potential suitors weren’t just in it for the points!

The ending to this was okay, and there was a little bit of a surprise over who was running the hit list. The romance was a little predictable though, and I didn’t really enjoy it.
Overall; okay contemporary dance story, but didn’t hold my attention well.

  1. Oh, I was looking forward to reading this... I'm upset that it wasn't that good! Predictable books are my biggest pet peeves, so I don't know how much I want to read this now
