After Math (Off the Subject Book 1) Kindle Edition
Scarlett Goodwin’s world is divided into Before and After.
Before she agreed to tutor Tucker Price, college junior Scarlett was introvert, struggling with her social anxiety disorder and determined to not end up living in a trailer park like her mother and her younger sister. A mathematics major, she goes to her classes, to her job in the tutoring lab, and then hides in the apartment she shares with her friend, Caroline.
After junior Tucker Price, Southern University’s star soccer player enters the equation, her carefully plotted life is thrown off its axis. Tucker’s failing his required College Algebra class. With his eligibility is at risk, the university chancellor dangles an expensive piece of computer software for the math department if Scarlett agrees to privately tutor him. Tucker’s bad boy, womanizer reputation makes Scarlett wary of any contact, let alone spending several hours a week in close proximity.
But from her first encounter, she realizes Tucker isn’t the person everyone else sees. He carries a mountain of secrets which she suspects hold the reason to his self-destructive behavior. But the deeper she delves into the cause of his pain, the deeper she gets sucked into his chaos. Will Scarlett find the happiness she’s looking for, or will she be caught in Tucker’s aftermath?

I really enjoyed meeting the cast of characters in this New Adult gem.
Scarlett Goodwin is a maths genius who grew up in a trailer park. She spends the majority of her time either in class, studying for class, or tutoring other students in the math (I really want to write maths, here) lab. In walks Tucker Price; cocky, womanizing, soccer star. They share a class together - one in which he always turns up late. His dedication to his schooling is lackluster, at best.
Tucker needs a tutor to help him pass maths and keep his soccer scholarship and he insists on having Scarlett as his tutor. Scarlett isn’t keen. She could not be more opposite to Tucker. He loves to party, she breaks into a sweat at the thought.
Initially Tucker treats their tutoring sessions as a joke. Scarlett lets him know that she won’t waste her time putting up with any rubbish. In doing so, she becomes the first person to treat him like he’s an average boy, rather than a rock star. She wants nothing from him, but his respect and a genuine effort to learn. With this realization he transforms into a thoughtful, vulnerable enigma.
As the layers are peeled away from both of their pasts, they help each other towards attaining freedom, but Tucker’s future is calling. He’s torn between a life he never truly hoped for and someone else’s dream.
Loved it, loved it, LOVED IT.
Scarlett is so guarded, almost completely closed off and Tucker sees through it. He practically reads her mind. I adored this couple. They go through quite a bit of turmoil on their journey. This book is definitely a roller-coaster ride of emotions. That’s what makes it so good.
In this book we also meet Scarlett’s best friend, Caroline, who becomes the female protagonist in Redesigned. Her story is also brilliant. Review coming next week.
Enjoy. 5 stars.
The basic premise of the book was a kid on a soccer scholarship meets a "nerd" and falls in love.
I thought it sounded like an interesting read because previously I had read the "Hashtag" series by Cambria Hebert and they were great with a similar plot line, and who doesn't like a bit of romantic fluff right?
The things I liked about the book? The H/h had interesting back stories, the story was relatively free of mistakes and it was free.
Things I didn't like? Okay, I understand it is fiction but the guy was on a Soccer Scholarship yet he never played in the book, okay he played like one time for 3 pages. The rest of the time he was doing Math with h and partying. Oh and "teaching" her to run.
What is the point of having a book with a premise of jock/nerd romance without the jock actually doing anything sporty?!
In fact he spent 3/4 of the book complaining about the fact that he hated soccer, yet in the same sentence he compared himself to David Beckham and was "insanely talented at it". The plot was all over the place.
To be honest I skipped huge chunks of the novel as I found myself rolling my eyes and just wishing that they would have sex already. Sorry does that make me sound like a whore? Probably! But there was pages and pages of algebra and math calculations and not much else.
I gave it three stars because it wasn't the most terrible thing I have read, but it wasn't the best either.
Go read Cambria Hebert and save yourself a download.
Its a nerd tutors soccer star novel.
Little bit of chemistry and sexy time.
Characters are okay but there are better books around with the same premises.

Set in a university, a nerdy maths genius is tasked with offering extra tutoring to a failing jock.
Not surprisingly the dark secrets & hidden pasts mean things are never a simple as boy meets girl etc, and as much as I didn’t want to enjoy this (I'm very critical of the formulaic romance) I found myself rooting for the leads.
Very enjoyable easy read.
Where this book was a nice easy romance and the characters were quite likeable- it just felt far too young for me. Im only 28 but I felt far too old to be reading it- as if it would be better enjoyed by a younger audience. There was also quite a few childish bits and Tuckers ability to psychoanalysis just felt to unrealistic for the characters.
Overall not one I'd read again (still unsure if I want to read book 2 about a secondary character) but would think a younger reader than me may quite enjoy it and connect with it.
Both find themselves through each other.
Another good reas by Denise
