Never play a game you can't win.
For Cain Kent, that rule is golden. Losing is not in his vocabulary, and up until now, everything has come easy. Football, school, girls ... his charm-laced ego may just be bigger than Texas itself.
The competition he started freshman year with his friends, to make ten notches each in their bedposts by graduation day, is practically in the bag. One more to go, and then it's off to college fame and eventually, the big time. Attachments aren't something he wants to form, but when the quiet new girl challenges him in front of his classmates, his curiosity is peaked. She would be the perfect final score, and what fun to break her in the process.
Too bad Harper Posy has no intention of being just another warm body, especially to the bad boy quarterback. Even if he does quote Forster and Huxley when no one is listening. An aspiring author herself, Cain and his hidden soft side are dangerous to her heart. She's seen men ruin her mother's dreams time and again, and she's determined to fly far away as soon as she has that diploma in her fist.
But as the school year’s end looms closer, both realize they didn’t quite understand the rules to begin with. Is winning a dirty bet worth the gamble when the stakes, or the other’s heart in this case, are so high?
Harper is the one girl who isn't up for playing games. And she just might make Cain lose. Everything.
Title: The Tenth Girl
Cain Kent is used to getting all that he wants. He was cocky and determined. A playboy used to all the female attention he wanted. He never imagined there would be one who would not fall at his feet. I loved Harper Posy. Though she was smart, confident and sweet, she was no pushover. She had her plans and wanted to get through her senior year.
Cain is so close to win a competition that started his freshman year with his fellow football players. He was determined to be the winner. The new girl in town seems to be the perfect tenth girl that will give him the win. But he never saw her coming! I loved Cain and Harper’s back and forth. She challenged him in ways no one else ever has. Instead he found himself showing her sides of him he never showed anyone else. Will Cain win the game, or will he allow himself a much bigger win with Harper?
The Tenth Girl by Carrie Aarons was a good read and one I read quickly. It was charming, even if Cain was not a nice guy in the beginning, I loved watching him fall for Harper. An overall good YA read with very likeable characters and a story to get lost in!
