The Hard Count by Ginger Scott


Release Date: 07.15.2016


Synopsis:

Nico Medina’s world is eleven miles away from mine. During the day, it’s a place where doors are open—where homes are lived in, and neighbors love. But when the sun sets, it becomes a place where young boys are afraid, where eyes watch from idling cars that hide in the shadows and wicked smoke flows from pipes. 

West End is the kind of place that people survive. It buries them—one at a time, one way or another. And when Nico was a little boy, his mom always told him to run.

I’m Reagan Prescott—coach’s daughter, sister to the prodigal son, daughter in the perfect family. 
Life on top. 
Lies.
My world is the ugly one. Private school politics and one of the best high school football programs in the country can break even the toughest souls. Our darkness plays out in whispers and rumors, and money and status trump all. I would know—I’ve watched it kill my family slowly, strangling us for years. 

In our twisted world, a boy from West End is the only shining light.
Quarterback. 
Hero.
Heart.
Good.
I hated him before I needed him.
I fell for him fast.
I loved him when it was almost too late. 

When two ugly worlds collide, even the strongest fall. But my world…it hasn’t met the boy from West End.

Review:



This was he 156th book I've read this year but it definitely is one of my favorite.

The story,the characters and the very good writing will grab your attention from the first page and you won't want to say goodbye to them at the end.

The Hard Count was a beautiful love story and so much more...I appreciated how the growing relationship between Nico and Reagan is not the only focus of the plot,actually it is only the starting point to discover their different worlds,their friends and families.
I love High School Football and I really liked how the author described the games and the pressure behind this beautiful sport.

This story touched me so much because it is so realistic it hurts as much as it was mine.
Even if I'm not american this story made me think,I live in a city considered by many the West End of my country and this made me really sad because I love this city as much as Nico loves his neighborhood.
