Review: Going Long by Ginger Scott

Rating:  ★★★1/2
Date published: October 1st, 2013
Publisher: Ginger Scott
Synopsis: They fell in love in high school and found their way back to one another despite the odds. But can first loves really be forever? For Reed Johnson, the dream was always football. But then Nolan Lennox took over his heart. Is he willing to give up his first love just to keep his true love? Or will he be too late? 

Reed and Nolan’s story continues in "Going Long," sequel to "Waiting on the Sidelines."

What I Thought:

I do love football related stories.  I do think my reading experience could've been better if I'd read the first book. For a while I was thinking as I read, "Hmm there's a lot I don't have a clue about.  I wonder if I went straight into book two?" and guess what?  I had.  Thankfully I wasn't totally lost.  I was quickly able to figure out what'd happened.  

I liked Reed and Nolan a lot.  I was hoping their relationship would survive in spite of all the obstacles in their way.  It wasn't just the fact they were attending different schools far apart, but life choices each had to make.  

Right after finishing this book I decided I was going to read Waiting on the Sidelines.  I'll report back after having read it.  I'm glad I enjoyed my first book by Ginger Scott.  I hope she continues writing about Reed and Nolan.
