Defending Taylor (Hundred Oaks) by Miranda Kenneally

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to SOURCEBOOKS Fire and NetGalley.
Defending Taylor
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Captain of the soccer team, president of the Debate Club, contender for valedictorian: Taylor’s always pushed herself to be perfect. After all, that’s what is expected of a senator’s daughter. But one impulsive decision—one lie to cover for her boyfriend—and Taylor’s kicked out of private school. Everything she’s worked so hard for is gone, and now she’s starting over at Hundred Oaks High.

Soccer has always been Taylor’s escape from the pressures of school and family, but it’s hard to fit in and play on a team that used to be her rival. The only person who seems to understand all that she’s going through is her older brother’s best friend, Ezra. Taylor’s had a crush on him for as long as she can remember. But it’s hard to trust after having been betrayed. Will Taylor repeat her past mistakes or can she score a fresh start?

Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Defending Taylor “I’d almost rather be known as a druggie than a snitch. People will forget about pills, but a person’s character isn’t so easily forgotten.”

This was a YA contemporary romance about a girl who got expelled from her boarding school.

Taylor was an interesting character, and it was noble of her the way she took the blame for her boyfriend’s mistake, it certainly got her in a lot of trouble though!

The storyline in this was about Taylor starting at Hundred Oaks High, and struggling without her friends and her football/soccer team. The pace in this was quite slow though, and it seemed to take a long time for the romance storyline to show up.

The ending to this was okay, and we did get a bit of a happily ever after.

6 out of 10
