I may not be finishing my current WIP in 30 days, but it wasn’t the hare that won the race. The tortoise won by thinking smarter and harder.
Yup. Had to use an Arrow GIF. I mean, Felicity and Oliver are meant to be together. They both know it, but still they fight those feelings and continue to work together. Eventually they will be together. I hope to have my novel ready for my CPs in November, but that time frame is flexible. As long as I do my best writing and tell the story that’s in my head, I don’t need to rush. This one is worth taking the time.
The Los Angeles Conservatory for the Arts is supposed to be a new beginning for Sadie Bryant. Moving across the country is exactly what she needs to escape the gossip surrounding her injury, the devastating betrayal of her ex-partner, and to rebuild her career as a solo dancer.
When the school announces that the annual Fall Showcase, a performance that secures a spot studying in London, will now require each dancer to have a partner, Sadie’s fresh start is a nightmare. Now she has to dance with Luke Morrison, the school womanizer with a big ego. Sadie doesn’t know how to trust Luke enough to dance with him after her last partner left her broken, but Luke is determined to change that.
Then, The Hit List comes out. A game of sexual conquest where guys get points for all the girls they hook up with—and it seems like every guy at the school is playing.
The girl worth the most points? Sadie.
What Did I Think?
I’ve held onto this beauty since BEA 2014. I met Nikki there and absolutely LOVE dance stories, so I had to have it–along with all the other Spencer Hill published books at BEA:)
Here’s the short of it–it was meh. Why?
1. There was a lot of repetition in thought throughout the story.
2. The relationship between Sadie and Alex went from 0 to 10 in a ridiculous amount of time.
3. I’ve totally read stories before with similar conflicts. So, not an original story line.
That being said, I still enjoyed reading The Hit List. It is a great pallet cleanser, if you know what I mean.
