Review: Surviving Adam Meade by Shannon Klare

Book Blurb

Seventeen-year-old Claire Collins has a plan: get into college and leave North Carolina behind. What she doesn’t have is an idea for how to get rid of the local football star and womanizer extraordinaire—Adam Meade, who she can’t even avoid (despite many efforts), because Claire’s dad is the high school football coach.

Seventeen-year-old Adam Meade never fails. He always gets what he wants . . . until he meets Claire, the new girl who leaves him unnerved, pissed off, and confused. But there’s something about her that he just can’t resist . . .

With the bite of lemon meringue pie and the sugar of sweet tea, Surviving Adam Meade is a sexy and compelling young adult novel about two strong-willed people who think they know what they want but have no idea what they need.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Claire has moved to a new school where her father just took a new job.  She had to leave her friends, her boyfriend and her life behind.  She is heartbroken because her boyfriend broke up with her as long-distance relationships were too hard.  So, her attitude is not the best at the beginning of the story.  She doesn’t want to be there. 

Enter Adam Meade and he comes across at a complete jerk.  The author gives several instances where they would both like to strangle each other.  Claire refuses to put up with his crap.  I love her.  She gives it right back at him.  It is fun to read the banter they have back and forth.  You know they will fall for each other.  Claire is torn about what her future holds, and Adam doesn’t believe in long-distance relationships.  Both have issues they are dealing with.  They battle against family illness, exs and college decisions.  I like the pairing and how they deal with what is thrown at them by the author.  The reactions are very realistic for all characters.  The added excitement of the football season gives another layer to the story.  It was a great read and I liked the ending.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
