Book Review #300 - Stealing Parker (Hundred Oaks #2) by Miranda Kenneally

Stealing Parker (Hundred Oaks, #2)
Parker Shelton pretty much has the perfect life. She’s on her way to becoming valedictorian at Hundred Oaks High, she’s made the all-star softball team, and she has plenty of friends. Then her mother’s scandal rocks their small town and suddenly no one will talk to her.

Now Parker wants a new life.

So she quits softball. Drops twenty pounds. And she figures why kiss one guy when she can kiss three? Or four. Why limit herself to high school boys when the majorly cute new baseball coach seems especially flirty?

But how far is too far before she loses herself completely?
My Rating: 4/5
I have not read the first book in this series Catching Jordan, although being only a companion novel, I could tell there were references to that book but I never felt confused. I will however, be reading Catching Jordan really soon.  
After reading the first 75% or so of this book I was ready to give it five stars. It was around the time that the plot twist with Drew was introduced that I became less interested, simply because I predicted it from the beginning.
I really liked the variety of male characters that existed in this novel, and the way that Parker interacts with each of them.
Being someone that has a general interest in all sports, it was good to read a book that incorporates sport heavily into the story.
