Product Description

Welcome to the time where memories are made and hearts get broken.

Collin Atwood is a sophomore at Everly High School and the all-American boy in an all-American family. It's his first year on the varsity team and the pressure is on, from his dad and the town. For the first time in over twenty years his hometown could be in line for a state championship title and he’s their ticket to get there.
That is if he can get his grades up enough to play.

Enter the daughter of the last guy that held the town's hopes and dreams of state titles, who turned into a drunk after he blew it all. Paired up with Joelle Prescott as his tutor, these two are far from being in the same social circle. She's an honor student and a badass on the drum line. In her family full of athletes, she feels invisible. Which is good sometimes...makes it easier to keep her secrets. Will he keep her secrets? Will she help him make the grade?

WARNING: This book is a Mature YA book. It is intended for people 15+, it is not suitable for those younger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tongue in cheek, parallel storylines where football jocks and band geeks taking the star roles! Return once again to high schoo 3 February 2016
By TSRBR - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Tongue in cheek, parallel storylines where football jocks and band geeks taking the staring roles! Return once again to high school days with restlessness nights searching for...well that's the thing, not really knowing what your looking for! S. M. Donaldson transports you to that time and creates characters that will snag you and drawn you into the world of football, flirting, sexing and living life out loud! Crimson Catch is the first book in Ms. Donaldson's Game Time series and it's a must read for anyone even though it is YA.

When you think of high school, where did you fit or did you fit in anywhere? Joelle Prescott fits perfectly in the background where she lives her secret life. She is really a rebel at heart, a person that is above average intellectually superior, creative, musically inclined and above all loyal. So when asked to tutor the football's star QB by her brother the captain of the team she agrees. This is the beginning of Joelle and Collin's journey towards becoming finding out where they belong and with who!

Sometimes it is not enough to be the golden boy, the All-American stud muffin. Surely there is more than blowjobs from girls that want a piece of his status as the star QB! Collin Atwood knows that something is missing, but what? When his coach tells him to either get his grades up or warm the bench, Collin is willing to hunker down and agrees to work with a tutor. The only problem is the tutor is Joelle and she fascinates him!

High school is difficult without dodging mean girls and bad boys that think they are all that without the drama of daily life as a teen. So as I read this amazing book Ms. Donaldson, I realized she had the pulse of that world down pat! Her book is packed with drama, sizzling sexual tension, mystery, friendship and loyalty! I really enjoyed adding this book to my library, because it is a winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars A mild YA that does a great job at holding my attention! 10 February 2016
By Itsy Bitsy Book Bits - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Let me start by saying this is a YA book so it’s pretty mild. With that being said Crimson Catch by SM Donaldson was still good at holding my attention. There are some sexual scenes and cusswords. Have you ever wondered what a small town life is like for high school students? Crimson Catch does a pretty good job of portraying it. In many small towns sports mean everything, they are the pride and joy of many parents and students along with ways of bringing in income and new students. Let's start with Collin Atwood. He’s the sophomore who will become the captain next year. He is also failing 2 classes and in order to keep playing he is in serious need of a tutor, James the captain of the team and only senior just so happens to know someone who can tutor Collin without being a distraction...or so he thinks. Then there's Joelle, she's the super smart band geek and basically feels invisible in her family...and James (her brother) needs a favor...James and Joelle have a hectic home life with an alcoholic father, a younger sister who is on the fast track to being a part of the Queen B's, a mother who only see's James and the whole family relies on Joelle for everything. After their dad faces a heart attack and some nasty things are said and done can the family move forward and forgive or will it be too late for second chances because of the amount of emotional and physical damage done over the years.

Can Joelle help Collin while still maintaining her hectic schedule and still manage to keep the secret that only her best friend that can change everything for her including how everyone looks at her and thinks of her...including her family? Can Collin and Joelle keep a strictly platonic relationship even though Collin is starting to see her as more. With everything going on in her life between the secrets, the tutoring, the family store and her band practice can Joelle keep her cool or will it all come crashing down over a jealous school girl crush from the queen B who happens to have a crush on Collin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! 3 February 2016
By Sassy Southern Book Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was such an enjoyable read. The book is set in a small town where everybody knows everybody and everybody likes to talk. I enjoyed all the characters and it's a great introduction book if it's going to be a series. Even if it's spin off stories from the other characters in this book. I'd love to see what else happens with them all. It doesn't leave you with a cliff hanger heartache but it does leave you wanting more.
The main focus of the book is Collin the golden boy QB who needs to improve his grades or he'll be benched and won't be able to take the team to the championship game. The captain of the team enlists his little sister Joelle as Collins tutor. She can't say no to him. Her whole family pushes her off to the side because she isn't in to sports and she doesn't cheer. Her father was suppose to leave the town for his football career but he got injured. Her older brother is the captain of the football team and her little sister is a cheerleader. Mean while she's in the band and likes to read. She also has a big secret that she doesn't want anybody to know. I feel like I'm rambling and giving away to much. My brain is screaming SPOILER ALERT!!! Lol so I will leave it down to this. There are some sexual situations that happen in the book and some explicit language. It is high school so there is some cattiness and stuff, parties( if you live in a small town you know how those go down) keggers and bone fires in fields and barns. All in all this was an enjoyable and refreshing read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 3 February 2016
By Sherri Frye - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book. It is well written, smooth flowing and easy to read. The author did a great job portraying the characters, their emotions, and the experiences they went through.

One thing I really liked about this book is that most people can relate to the book in at least one way. Being in high school you have the jocks, cheerleaders, Queen B's, geeks, etc. Feeling like you are the outcast in your family or that you have the weight of the whole town on your shoulders.

I really liked the main character Joelle. She is smart, she knows what she wants, she does what she enoys even if that isn't what others things she should be doing. She also knows that if she wants her biggest secret to stay a secret, that she can't let anybody know. Living in a small souther town where gossip flows more freely than water, if one person spills the beans, everyone will know.

Collin is the golden boy of the town. He is the local football star, and his team, family and the whole town has the state champion ship riding on him. That's a lot of pressure for anybody, let alone a teenager.

I look forward to reading more by this author, and I can't wait to see what will happen in the next book.

I Dream of Books

5.0 out of 5 stars #AWESOMESTORY 3 February 2016
By Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely LOVED this sweet story. Collin Atwood is an all American sophomore, from an all-American family. He's already made the varsity team, and the pressure is huge from his father, and the town. The team is on the path of a state championship for the first time in 20 years, but he has to get his grades up to play. Joelle Prescott is from a family full of athletes, but she's the odd man out as a member of the drum line, which makes her feel invisible. When she has to tutor Collin, he learns to see her differently than the town does.

Crimson Catch is a wonderful story of small towns obsessed with football. The character development is fantastic, with great depth to the teenage main characters. A sweet, realistic, and well written story line flows smoothly. S.M. Donaldson does a great job weaving together a story about High School, teenagers under large expectations, and small town mentality especially with football. I was captivated cover to cover, and cannot wait to read the next book! I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
