Tasty Review Tour: Above Par

Above Par
By: Crystal Donahue

There are no mulligans in love.

Drew's life just got a whole lot harder. Her relationships are falling apart, her little sister is failing math, and her parents are leaving for Florida to take care of Grandpa. Now not only does she have to play surrogate parent, study to graduate from her last semester of college, and deal with the looming threat of full-on adulthood, she has to do it all while running the family's mini-golf course by herself. Even the upbeat Drew is starting to feel like she just drove her ball down the unfairway.

Her luck takes a turn when she meets Weston, the snarky geometry teacher. He's smart, capable, dependable, and handsome—a real hole in one. But even Weston has a few hazards of his own. Now Drew will have to decide whether his secret is the wedge that drives them apart, or pushes them together.

Review Rating: 4.5  LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: I totally enjoyed Above Par! Drew was a fun character and I loved all her layers.   She's been having to deal with her sister while her parents are away, and she meets Weston, a teacher and from the instant they met, it's so on! No, not the sex, no not the angst...but the wit and the fun! Ahh! I loved these two. I love that they are learning about each other and not jumping into bed. I love the dialog between them....You catch my drift?

Above Par is an easy, delightful read, and I could see myself pulling this one off the e-shelf for a re-read sometime. It's refreshing and Ms. Donahue's writing is easy to follow. She pulled me in right away with the story and I didn't want any distractions while trying to finish.  Can't wait for more from this author!
