    THE GAME CAN'T LOVE YOU BACK was a great sports romance. It is told in two viewpoints. Eve is an athlete and, whatever she plays, she wins. She has awards for soccer, basketball ... and baseball. Yup, she's been playing with the boys since she and her older brothers were all in Little ...

    Three Awesome Things About THE GAME CAN'T LOVE YOU BACK... 1. Badass female lead. Just wait until you meet Eve -- she's strong, smart, loyal, determined, and super athletic. She stares down sexism and intimidation without flinching, and I adore her. 2. Dreamiest male lead. Jamie ...

    Eve is the exact kind of fierce heroine I needed in my life this past week. I could read about her annihilating stereotypes and bucking expectations for at least another three books... wink wink Karole. :) Be sure to check this one out in May! You won't regret it! ...

    Smart, funny, and sexy! I devoured this glorious book! Eve is one of those characters that you can immediately connect to. Headstrong, passionate, and protective over what matters most in her life - in this case taking pride in being the only girl on the school's baseball team. Whe...

    CW: references to domestic abuse This one hooked me very quickly. Ambitious, single-minded female athlete vs cool player (in more ways than one), both vying for the same position on the baseball team? Yes please. I don't even care about baseball (sorry, I'm a rugby girl). I was just...

    Somehow I've read two books about the same thing this year: female athletes in male-dominated sports who fall for one of their teammates. Waiting for a third one for this to become an early trend of the year. Light and breezy read with a cute hate-to-love romance. ...

    3.5 - 4 If you love PITCH and mad that it got cancelled WELL!!!!!!! This book is it for you. The only thing that bothered me is that Eve and Marcella never resolved some of the more deeper conversations... I loved that periods/tampons were brought up even though it was really ...

    2.5 stars? I really loved this premise and was fairly eager to read the book, yet I?m not entirely sure how I feel now that I?m done with it. Eve and Jamie are decent enough characters. I liked that they were driven and competitive and focused. I didn?t see the chemistry b...

    as always, this review's on the blog as well! --- This is my second book by Karole Cozzo and it has a completely different tone than her last novel?The Truth About Happily Ever After. This isn?t bad at all, actually, and I loved that she?s able to write such different character...

    4.5 Stars As a fan of books about sports, the enemies to lovers trope, strong female characters, and Karole Cozzo, The Game Can?t Love You Back just screams recipe for success. This book is empowering and follows the story of the only female athlete on a school baseball team. It i...

    My favorite Karole Cozzo book to date, and the title, THE GAME CAN?T LOVE YOU BACK, might be the most perfect title ever ? it perfectly sums up the themes of the story. When Eve?s high school suffers a freak accident, she and the rest of her Bulldogs are forced across town to att...

    (2.5 stars) I was super excited to read this book when I first got it. I don?t think I talk about it a lot, but I absolutely adore sport romances. I love Zapata?s books, but I read very few sport romances in the young adult genre. Therefore, I was super hyped about this one! ...

    Grade: C+ An ARC was provided by Macmillan in exchange for an honest review. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: YA sports books are often fluffy fun. I don't actively seek them out, but I have read a few (Miranda Kenneally's series and Being Sloane Jacobs come to mind). When writing...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars When I first heard about this book, I was all over it because I was a fan of the TV show, Pitch, and I love Karole Cozzo books. Needless to say, I devoured this book, starting and finishing it in the same day. It was fun, heartwarming, compelling, and swoony. ?...

    Even though the summary makes you think this is a typical teen romance melodrama with a dash of sports, this book exceeded my expectations :D It sounds like it's gonna be all fluffy, light but it wasn't exactly like that. These characters were far more realistic and they were really fl...

    This book definitely surprised me, because I expected a very cliched romance novel and this wasnt really one. It was super realistic, Id say - at least in comparison to other romance novels. The only thing that didnt quite make sense to me was that she was allowed to play in a boys tea...

    Lately it seems like I'm enjoying more of the sporty kind of contemporary books which this lovely book belongs to. I was never a sporty type myself but loved to watch almost any kind of sports and learn their specific rules. Reading books with a focus on one or more sports always f...

    A light, easy YA romantic read. With a strong and independent female lead and your typical sports mad popular guy this book was set to be right up my alley. The writing is punchy and the story itself is great. I have been needing the happily ever.after books lately and this.one did...
