The Recruiting Trip (The University of Gatica Series Book 1) - Lexy Timms, Chelsea Jillard, Book Cover By Design

Aileen Nessa has seen Tyler Jensen around before.  They have been on the field at some of the same sporting events.  Now that she is checking out The University of Gatica, she meets him in person and gets to know him.


Tyler is sort of a spokesperson for the university since he has several awards and is basically a track star.  He is immediately attracted to Aileen.  She is in good shape, takes care of herself, and he has already noticed her at some of the events as well.


Aileen has many choices to sort through for college.  She is trying to find the best fit for her science based degree, while having the best track and field experience.  Tyler and the coaches talk to her about what this school has to offer.


Tyler is only sometimes on the track.  He schedules in football and of course, his studies.  He is popular and well loved.  He also wants Aileen to make her choice without influence from him.  He wants her to be where he is, though.


Aileen finds it hard to stock to her plans for Stanford, when Gatica seems to want her bad enough to open up the red carpet with a full ride scholarship.  What will she choose?


I learned a lot in this book.  Track and Field sports are not always well known among us common folk, but I was grateful the author gave me enough information to follow along.  The characters are fun to read about and the school is clearly interested.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
