Surviving Adam Meade by Shannon Klare - OPTIONAL

Surviving Adam Meade by Shannon Klare, 244 pages.  Swoon Reads (Macmillan), 2018.  $17.  

Content: Language: R (34 swears; 1 “f”); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG.  



As a senior in high school, Claire is going to a new school because her dad is the new football coach.  Claire quickly realizes that the quarterback, Adam Meade, is a hothead and decides that she wants nothing to do with him, but when they start to share friends, Adam and Claire’s banter quickly becomes something more.  With colleges looking at Adam for football and Claire’s lifelong dream of going to Auburn, their friendship/romance is probably going to be short-lived but they can’t seem to avoid each other.  

This was a cute, fun romance along the lines of Abbi Gline’s Field Party series (but this book has cleaner content).  I loved the banter between the characters and their backstories were interesting.  The one “f” word was annoying because it moved the content from advisable to optional and the content also includes a few sexual innuendos making it PG-13.  Overall, if your readers are looking for a light romance novel this was fun.
