Blog Tour Review: All Lined Up by Cora Carmack and GIVEAWAY


All Lined Up
By Cora Carmack
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack follows up her trio of hits—Losing It, Faking It, and Finding It—with this thrilling first novel in an explosive series bursting with the Texas flavor, edge, and steamy romance of Friday Night Lights.

In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.

Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.

But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.

Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It's obliterated.

Dallas doesn't know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn't know that Dallas is his new coach's daughter.

And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.
Every book by Cora Carmack seems to get better and better and All Lined Up is no exception. It has the usual hilarious banter and fun romance that Cora’s books usually have. While reading in public places I had to really concentrate on not laughing out loud. This book is just that funny. Yet, it’s also more than just a funny story.  
All Lined Up follows Dallas and Carson. Both are just starting to live at a four year university the first time. Dallas as a freshman and Carson out of community college. I was just finishing my freshman year at school as I read All Lined Up so that aspect of the book was really relatable for me. All Lined Up truly captured the feel of college life, everything from stress from classes to crazy football games. Not all New Adult books really feel like novels about college students however, this one did it perfectly. 

Cora’s characters are also very real. They do awkward things and feel like real people in college. I enjoy how they are not always perfect, it’s more realistic. The romance in All Lined up is so sweet and fun to read. I loved every second of Carson and Dallas together. Especially how they first met. It was something I could actually see happening at a college party.
You don’t have to like football to love All Lined Up. This is a novel for anyone looking for a quick and hilarious romantic read. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series and anything else Cora Carmack writes.
