    One thought on “Stealing Parker”

    1. I bought three Miranda Kenneally books namely, Stealing Parker, Things I Can t Forget and Catching Jordan I honestly had no idea all these books are part of a series called Hundred Oaks and that I should have read Catching Jordan first I just went through GR average ratings and decided to read that which has the lowest average Lol Anyway, onto the review I think the plot and themes have much substance than what one would expect of a contemporary romance book if only the execution of the entire [...]

    2. Catching Jordan was one of my favourite books of last year, so when I heard of another novel by Miranda I had really high hopes for it, especially after learning that it was a companion to Jordan different characters but the same setting I was happy to find another incredibly sweet, heartfelt romance in Stealing Parker, with characters that are just as charismatic, and a story that keeps you up for just one chapter With Jordan, we were thrown into the word of Football, and now with Parker, it s [...]

    3. Read along with Rachel 4.5 stars.When I first read about a companion novel being released for Catching Jordan I was super excited Catching Jordan had been one of my favourite reads of 2011 and so I couldn t wait to devour of Kenneally s work However I did have my initial reservations about it too as I loved Catching Jordan so much I worried that I would constantly find myself comparing it to its predecessor I was also worried that it would venture down a similar path, but gladly this was not th [...]

    4. I don t know about you, but this book sounds EXACTLY like my type of book Baseball forbidden romance HELL YEAH She really hit the ball out of the park with this one Review to come For anybody that knows me, they know how much I love baseball I love that game so much I thrive on baseball like other people thrive on food So when I found out Miranda Kenneally s sopho book was about baseball, and a forbidden romance MY NEXT FAVORITEST THING EVER , I knew I was going to love it and I did Stealing Par [...]

    5. Rating 2.5 Stars Stealing Parker is, logistically speaking, not a bad book In fact, I have an immense amount of respect for Miranda Kenneally for tackling on real life, modern day issues such as lesbian parents, gay friends, and even student teacher relationships Yet, I found myself to be sorely disappointed by this one While I will admit that Catching Jordan had its flaws, mostly stemming from its dramaticism, it never altered by enjoyment and emotional investment of the novel Stealing Parker, [...]

    6. 4.5 Stars Parker Shelton is a high school senior that s gone through some major hurt in her life Her mother took off with another woman leaving Parker, her father and brother to deal with the damage Her good friend, Laura, not only abandoned her but takes pleasure in her family s fall from grace She uses every opportunity to make fun of Parker, insinuating that Parker bats for the other team just like her mom Parker feels the need to prove Laura and other gossipers wrong, by quitting the basebal [...]

    7. I ve only read two books by Miranda Kenneally, and already I m a fan of her writing style Her prose is casual, uncomplicated, and absolutely addictive There is just a fluid ease in the way that she writes that makes it hard to put her books down That being said, I m not a fan of the content in this particular book I planned on writing a full on review for this book, but I think Keertana s review pretty much says it all, and is far eloquent and well put together than anything I could come up wit [...]

    8. 2.5 starsI liked this than Catching Jordan, and there were some aspects I enjoyed, but overall this was a bit frustrating and fairly predictable Also, I truly don t mean to offend anyone from Canberra, but when Brian lists Canberra as one of his ideal honeymoon destinations during a game of MASH, I actually screech laughed WTF Of all the places in Australia to choose Sorry, no Just no chortles Canberra

    9. oh the cover is OUT You know it s sort of cute but ermmme guy s legs are set up on top of each other in such an angle it almost makes him look coughs GAY yes , my eyes do notice A LOT

    10. Parker Shelton used to love softball, until her mother shocks everyone and leaves her father for another woman Parker deals with an immense amount of fallout from her religious community and friends She becomes a social pariah in her town but when her mom leaves she makes sure everyone is clear of one thing Parker likes boys and is definitely not a lesbian like her mother Even if her reputation suffers from it and people thinks she is easy , she would rather have that then have people think she [...]

    11. 4 stars No, 4.25 stars Okay, so this one will be hard to write about, I think For a few reasons For one, there are a lot and some slightly contradicting emotions And secondly, I can t say the name of the hero without spoiling this whole story for you which will make it hard to talk about the different characters But I ll give this a try anyway.I wish I hadn t quit the team last year I wish I hadn t let my former friends influence everything I did I wish I had understood that people will always i [...]

    12. Parker Shelton s mom left her family for another woman Her church and friends all turned on her so Parker quit softball, lost 30 pounds, and started making out with all different guys to prove she is not like her mom I felt so devastated that Parker was abandoned in this difficult time She has one great friend Drew who stood by her Drew wants to spend time with Parker and suggests she help out with his baseball team and do the stats Parker meets the hot 23 year old Coach Brian Hoffman exactly 52 [...]

    13. The Hundred Oaks series took a darker turn with Stealing Parker It is not something I didn t like, but something I just didn t expect Catching Jordan seemed light hearted It had a few serious themes, but ultimately surrounded around a main character, Jordan, who was happy Stealing Parker s main character, Parker, was depressed and going through a tough time in her life Her mother has left town to pursue a relationship that will make her happy Parker is having a tough time back at home with peo [...]

    14. Please Please Please Miranda send the tour site this ARC when it comes out Love Catching Jordan ____My Thoughts You don t have to read Catching Jordan to read this, but I still suggest you do Read it first Back in September I was soooo excited when I first got a glimpse at Stealing Parker on So Excited After reading Catching Jordan and falling in love with it, I knew I would read whatever Miranda wrote next.Stealing Parker is just as sweet and excellent as Catching Jordan was Aren t these titles [...]

    15. I found the whole plot pretty formulaic and while the author tried to tackle important issues I think it failed to really drive home the point.The religious aspect was too heavy in the story and I didn t like the way things were solved with her church Still, Parker s relationship with her mother was the best of the book The teacher student relationship was as disastrous as it was expected to be, the way she struggled with Brian s pressure was painful to read but what I really hated was the way i [...]

    16. NEGATIVES NONE I LOVED THIS POSITIVES 1 I LOVED THIS NOVEL The story is so cute and fun I couldn t put this book down I needed to know what was going to happen next The pacing was great and there was never a dull moment So much drama, romance, kissing, sports and This book was a step up from its companion novel Catching Jordan , which was also excellent 2 I really loved Parker Sure she had committed a few mistakes but everyone does I loved seeing her grow and mature as the novel progressed I en [...]

    17. This review was originally published on Clear Eyes, Full Shelves I am not one to seek out books I know I won t like that s not how I roll Despite that my negative reviews generate pageviews and comments, I have zero interest in reading things that don t appeal to me There are far too many books in the world to waste my precious reading time that way.As a result of that, I know some of you will be surprised that I read Stealing Parker after Miranda Kenneally s debut, Catching Jordan was a quick [...]

    18. 4.5 starParker Shelton loves softball, but she gave up the sport when her mom left her family for another women Embarrassed and shattered by her broken family, Parker gives up on the game just to spite her mom and then goes out of her way to prove that she s nothing like her, and does in fact like boys She loses the butch look and drops 30 pounds and hooks up with random guys, earning her a bit of a rep that she s not exactly comfortable with, but doesn t really do anything about it She losses h [...]

    19. I deserve a medal for dealing with this type of books Spoilers ahead There are authors who s have great ideas and you just can t wait to get your hands on a copy and when you do, you just die because the book is everything you ve dreamed of Well, something similar does happen here Whenever I read a Kenneally book, I yell and shake my head because the characters do the most moronic things they could think of in order to learn their lesson I swear, I yelled so much while Jordan was picking that ot [...]

    20. This was my first read of Miranda Kenneally s work, so I wasn t sure what to expect from her writing Coming off of a lot of racy YA books and contemp adult romance novels, this one was very light for me, but I didn t appreciate it any less Kenneally is a very good story teller and created a good voice for the heroine, and this was a sweet story of young love.Parker s world was completely torn apart when her mother came out and left Parker s dad for another woman The congregation at the church th [...]

    22. Hmmm that was definetely a cute sy story Just wasn t exactly what I had hoped for, but it was still good otherwise I really liked Parker the MC and her growth throughout the story She was strong and she was independent She was willing to even separate herself from people whom she knew were hurting her I loved how she managed to stay strong and maintained her resillience even with all the misfortunes being hurled straight at her So characterization wise, this book wins it I liked the supporting c [...]

    23. I m not going to fully review Stealing Parker, why I just can t be bothered, honestly I enjoyed this book, it was realistic and the lack of slut shaming and sexism filled my heart My problem, however, was Parker felt like she had to prove she likes boys and the heavily religious aspect to the story As a person who isn t religious I don t particular want it shoved in my face I mean, it s a super cute read and definitely won t disappoint If you want a fast, fluffy read them this is for you

    24. I m not a sports fan, but how refreshing to finally see a lead female character as the sports star Parker Shelton plays softball That is, she used to until her mother left to be with a woman, instigating Parker s church associates and friends to condemn her family After all the teasing and ridicule, Parker wants to make one thing clear she s not a lesbian like her mother, and she ll suffer the consequences of a bad reputation with the boys to prove it After a little persuasion from her best frie [...]

    26. 5 STARSMy heart hurts right now Though less cheery and bantery than Catching Jordan, Stealing Parker hit me right in the feels and was so meaningful I need to just take a moment breathes out Phew I m okay.I didn t know what to expect at all, going into this book I hadn t read the premise, since I got it for my birthday from Christina and was resolved to read all the Miranda Kenneally books in existence anyway The two others that I d read, Catching Jordan and Breathe, Annie, Breathe were much ro [...]

    27. When I was presented the opportunity to read and review this book I jumped at the chance to do so despite never having read Catching Jordan yet , as it came so highly recommended to me in fact, some of my friends who had read it had trumpeted author Miranda Kenneally as the next Stephanie Perkins and those of you who know me know that I LOVE Stephanie Perkins Therefore, you could say that I had extremely high expectations expectations which were not met in any way, shape, or form When I first st [...]
