#The Character S Development I Would Have #character s development I would have special or just basic moments between the characters to get to know them better to get a sense of what they had in common why they were friends etc I also didn t Flight, Vol. 7 like the relationship between Claire and Adam THEre WERE CUTE MOMENTS THOUGH BOY THEY WERE CUTE But the relationship in itself felt empty not based on anything solid and everything felt rushed Their fights were unnatural to me as if they didn t need a good reason to fight but they just had to for the sake of the plot not really The characters also didn t really any depth in my opinion Claire was childish and her younger brother made me think the entire book that he should have been older because he was way mature that she was It wasike everything became a reason to complain and get mad even when there was no real reason I would have iked to get to know Riley and Tate a ittle bit too I gave the second star for the absolutely delightful sarcastic conversations between Claire and Adam and because of the cute moments Full review on Flipping Through the PagesActual rating 35 starsSurviving Adam Meade was a kind of swoony read You know the stories where the girl is attracted to the bad boy and we all actually ike that douche faced bad guy because of his attitude though he is broken from inside Well yeah I basically summed up the story in two ines Except not This story was about chasing your dreams too I really enjoyed the book overallThis story is about Claire Collins who has moved to a new town in her senior year thanks to her dad who is a football coach She is trying to forget her past and to move on She never again wanted to fall for a guy who plays football but "then she meets adam meade who is in "she meets Adam Meade who is in football team coached by her father Claire just wanted to graduate and go to Auburn her dream school but Adam Meade turns out to be an unexpected thing in her Camp Rex life Adam is the star of the high school s football team and basically the most popular guy in the school Claire and Adam areike en.

of When Dads Don't Grow Up lemon meringue pie and the sugar of sweet tea Surviving Adam Meade is a sexy and compelling young adult novel about two strong willed people who think they know what they want but have no idea what they needWhat I LikedThis book is still four months out but I couldn t not jump at the chance to read it as soon as possible I actually gave it a go in February because I had been excited about itong before I got a review copy This is rare for me I m not a huge fan of YA contemporary novels But something about this one appealed to me And I enjoyed the bookClaire Collins has moved times than she d Miles from Kara like thanks to her dad being a football coach Her new school is pretty great she has made new friends her younger brother fits in on the football team coached by their dad Claire wants nothing than to graduate and go to Auburn her dream school andeave her past behind She didn t plan on Adam Meade entering her Pee Wee Scouts treasury (Pee Wee Scouts, life Adam is the star B of the high school s football team and he gets under Claire s skin Claire gets under his skinike no other What happens when sparks fly between two stubborn strong willed teensThere was sooo much banter and sarcastic exchanges in this book Adam and Claire have chemistry from the start and this eads to a ot of heated banter There is tension between them and it manifests as irritation first and then something passionate I personally adore hate to ove romances so I was ALL for this There is a slight forbidden trope too as Claire previously dated a football uarterback at her former high school and Adam is the uarterback at her new high school Even though her dad is a football coach her brother plays football and she has been around football her entire ife she doesn t want to date a football player again She wants to graduate and go to college and start fresh So Adam is a bit forbidden and even though she is very attracted to him she doesn t want to want him At firstI High Heat love how the romance progressed Like I said it s hate toove and it s hilarious and swoony to watch The beginning is a ittle rocky these two seriously did not get along but they start to be nicer while still "sarcastic and banter y to each other There is instant tension and chemistry but not insta ove "and banter y to each other There is instant tension and chemistry but not insta ove my opinion I iked Claire her drive to get to college her steadfastness about Auburn and how she wanted a relationship with after her disaster of a formerly healthy relationship with a guy at her previous school I connected with Claire because she is so motivated and determinedI iked Adam even though he is a player and a ittle annoying at first He has a A treatise on the law of marital rights in Texas lot of confidence which Iove and he s actually a sweet and decent guy There are a ot of ayers to him it s not just the star football player that you seeThis isn t just a romance novel or a high school drama or teen angst novel There is very Lots of Hearts little drama and Iiked the high school setting and the high school conflicts This novel really worked for me and brought back memories of high school which was five years ago for me yikes Anyway it s not just about the romance Adam has his own personal problems Claire has her past to reconcile and of course there is the future with collegeBelieve it or not the ending is a HEA I was pretty pleased with it I honestly didn t think it would end super well these types of novels always have a bittersweet ending But it was goodWhat I Did Not LikeI wanted swoonssss There were actually a few and they were scattered throughout the story Maybe this novel might have functioned well as a New Adult novel It was great as YA though but I feel ike with all of the tension and chemistry that Adam and Claire had the author could have taken this Relationship Places I M Just places I m just I Recommend ItIf you ove YA contemporary definitely give this book a shot I tend to only gravitate towards and enjoy the romance y YA contemporary novels and this was a very romance y one I Why Diets Make Us Fat: The Unintended Consequences of Our Obsession with Weight Loss liked it aot everyone might not though but it s worth a shot It s a uick engaging read and I think people will either Don't Hex with Texas love it or hate it Hopefullyove itRating4 stars I see it might be book one of two If there is a second novel I hope it s New Adult than Young Adult If you know what I mean I wouldn t mind seeing the college side of things DNF at 50%Useless information stuffed throughout without any character development or even their basic descriptionI hated the shallow characters and the MC is absolutely shitty She isn t fun or sarcastic She is mean and the only conversation she has with her brother is when they fight for the car Some scenes felt so forced and the bickering which the author thought would make the book adorable was absolutely childish and annoying First of all this book is way too rushed I would say it was too short but by the end I was Seventeen year old Claire Collins has a plan get
