Shut Out By Kody Keplinger

Most high school sports teams have rivalries with other schools. At Hamilton High, it's a civil war: the football team versus the soccer team. And for her part, Lissa is sick of it. Her quarterback boyfriend, Randy, is always ditching her to go pick a fight with the soccer team or to prank their locker room. And on three separate occasions Randy's car has been egged while he and Lissa were inside, making out. She is done competing with a bunch of sweaty boys for her own boyfriend's attention.

Lissa decides to end the rivalry once and for all: she and the other players' girlfriends go on a hookup strike. The boys won't get any action from them until the football and soccer teams make peace. What they don't count on is a new sort of rivalry: an impossible girls-against-boys showdown that hinges on who will cave to their libidos first. And Lissa never sees her own sexual tension with the leader of the boys, Cash Sterling, coming.

One thing I give the author is that she knows how to entertain the reader. To me, that is one of the things I look forward to when I read a book. Cash was dreamy and Cloe was my favorite female character because she was strong but also funny.

I did have some issues with the book. Reason 1: it's all about sex. I'm not being old fashion here but sometimes I just wanted the characters to talk about something else other than "gettin' busy", you know what I mean? Reason 2: The other thing that bothered me was Lissa. She's a likable character but towards the end she was a bit annoying. Although, she does redeem herself so it was only for a little bit of the book that I disliked her.

I was happy with how the problems got solved and it had a good ending.
