Most high school sports teams have rivalries with other schools. At Hamilton High, it’s a civil war: the football team versus the soccer team. And for her part,Lissa is sick of it. Her quarterback boyfriend, Randy, is always ditching her to go pick a fight with the soccer team or to prank their locker room. And on three separate occasions Randy’s car has been egged while he and Lissa were inside, making out. She is done competing with a bunch of sweaty boys for her own boyfriend’s attention
Then Lissa decides to end the rivalry once and for all: She and the other players’ girlfriends go on a hookup strike. The boys won’t get any action from them until the football and soccer teams make peace. What they don’t count on is a new sort of rivalry: an impossible girls-against-boys showdown that hinges on who will cave to their libidos first. But what Lissa never sees coming is her own sexual tension with the leader of the boys, Cash Sterling…
I freakin loved this book. It was so cute and wonderful. It is the perfect read – light, fluffy, and definitely a feel good sort of read.
The whole idea of Shut Out was super cute. I had one issue with one scene in the book, I wasn’t super impressed with Lissa’s decisions. It was the only thing that I wasn’t absolutely in love with. I just breezed through Shut Out, I was turning pages and all at once I was at the end.
I loved all the characters! They were all super real, and easy to relate to. I especially loved Cash. He was just so swoon-worthy.
This is definitely a book you want to read! It is a super fast read and I absolutely loved it. The entire idea was just so cute! A must read :) I definitely am excited for future books from Kody Keplinger!
Cover Rating: A- – This cover is super cute, fitting the great story :)
