Losing the Field (The Field Party, #4)
Losing his dream, his ultimate plan, and his future- Nash Lee never expected to be facing a life without football. One wrong move and it had all changed. Going back to school for his senior year no longer appealed to him. He’d rather not leave his house. Walking back into Lawton High School, seeing pity in everyone’s eyes was just another reality in his nightmare.Revenge wasn’t a pretty thing. Tallulah Liddell had found it was rather controlling. The way you looked at life changed completely when you clung to the ugly notion. But she’d done it anyway. From the last day of her junior year when Ryker Lee had made a fat joke about her and Nash laughed with him, she’d been driven by pain. It wasn’t like no one had made fun of her weight before. She was used to that. What had hurt so deeply was Nash’s laughter. He’d always been the one person to notice her, include her, not treat her differently. But that one moment had changed it all. From the time she walked out of the school building to the moment she returned for her senior year Tallulah had been determined to lose weight and finally be the size her peers considered acceptable.What she wasn’t expecting on her return was to find a broken Nash Lee who no longer smiled, rarely spoke, and didn’t care about anything or anyone around him. He was just existing. But the pain in his eyes she understood all too well. He was alone. He no longer fit into the perfect package.

    3.5/5 starsLosing the Field is the fourth book in the YA Field Party series. These books are Young Adult contemporary romances.This book is set in Lawton, Alabama at the same high school as the previous books. However, IMO the other books were much more connected to each other. None of the previous narrators (West, Maggie, Brady, Riley, Willa, Gunner) are in this book at all. They have all graduated from high school. So this book looks at a new bunch of seniors.The narrators are Nash (18) and Ta 3.5/5 starsLosing the Field is the fourth book in the YA Field Party series.

Nash was on the football team with some of the previous narrators. Tallulah was a fat girl who has lost a lot of weight. And now all the guys like her. That is one key part of the story.Something happens to Nash at the beginning of the book that is another key part of the story. Also there is something that happens with one of the teachers, which is another big part of the book.This was a super quick read. There was definitely a lot happening in the last part of the book. This was an enjoyable read. Although I missed seeing the other characters from the previous books.Thanks to edelweiss and Simon Pulse for allowing me to read this book.

    I received this eARC novel from Edelweiss. This is my honest review. Release date: August 21, 2018Tallulah has always been called the fat girl at school. She gets made fun of, laughed at, and is the focus of many jokes among her classmates. Through it all, she just ignores it and does her own thing.

This is my honest review. Release date: August 21, 2018Tallulah has always been called the fat girl at school. She gets made fun of, laughed at, and is the focus of many jokes among her classmates. Through it all, she just ignores it and does her own thing. But when her crush, Nash - who has always backed her up and been really nice to her, even though his friends are making fun of her - laughs at a joke about her on the last day of school of junior year, it really crushed Tallulah. That was the day she decided to walk for 5 miles, in the scorching heat, and she did that every day during the summer. She also stopped eating sweets and started eating more healthier. By the time she got back to school senior year, she had lost so much weight that she had to buy a whole new wardrobe to wear clothes that fit her. And all during summer, she was planning her revenge on how she was going to ignore everyone who made fun of her - especially Nash since he was the one that hurt the most. Nash changed a lot over the summer as well - but in a different way. While playing football for fun, like he does every year, he messed up his leg with permanent damage. He can never play football again and he will have a limp for the rest of his life. Now, instead of being the easy going, fun guy, Nash is mad. He lashes out, he doesn't hangout with anyone, and he doesn't have any ambition for anything. So when the two see each other again first day of senior year, they are both confused. Nash because he can't figure out why Tallulah is so mad at him - and how much she has changed in just a few months - and Tallulah because Nash is not the guy that she once knew. And then there is a new teacher - the new football coach - and a new classmate, who is beyond popular on the internet. One will be a little too attentive to Tallulah, and the other will put Nash in a terrible situation. At the same time, Tallulah and Nash are searching each other out, wanting to hangout with each other. But both still have their deep dark secrets, and once they come out, they may decide that they never knew each other that well in the end. Okay, I am a huge Abbi Glines fan, but I'm finding that her new books/series that she has been writing is not really for me, which breaks my heart :(This book was beyond annoying for me. I love that Tallulah decided to lose the weight, but I wish that she did it for herself and not because Nash hurt her, when he definitely didn't mean to. She was doing it all for the wrong reasons, and she should be doing it for herself, so that made me sad. Then she was going to get revenge on Nash for the way he hurt her, but none of that happened because she was still crushing on him and wanted his attention more than making him miserable. I mean, if you are determined to do something, don't back out of it because now you are getting attention from him. Nash is somewhat of a jerk. I get that "his life is ruined" because he can't play football anymore, and that was his life, but he is still alive and well and he has all the time in the world to figure out what he is meant to do. And then when he sees Tallulah, he is suddenly attracted to her because she is skinny and pretty. It just blows my mind how self-absorbed these kids are. And the kicker is, they even think that themselves! But it doesn't change how they act, even when they know they are acting that way... There are too many new characters, or characters who seem very important at the beginning and then fade away into nothing. Asa was all over Tallulah, but the second Nash decided that he wanted Tallulah, Asa was just gone, with no explanation until the very end of the book. I mean, really?And then Tallulah. She is so ... aggravating. She plays the "I'm not naive" card and then she acts naive. She is used to being in the shadows where no one pays attention to her, and now that she is pretty, she is wondering why everyone is suddenly staring at her and wanting to hangout with her. She needs to decide what she wants and sticks with it. And then she gets cornered and "doesn't know what to do because maybe it's not as it seems" which is completely dumb and stupid to me. I would never have taken the crap that she went through. She was very mixed signals and it got on my nerves a lot. Then a new kid shows up, is all over the place and everyone is freaking out, and then it suddenly comes to a stop with him. I mean, can we stick with one storyline and not jump every which way? There was way too much in here, with not enough to keep it interesting, and then it suddenly slams shut on that storyline. I wish it was just about the two main characters and how they communicate to one another, because these two jumped to so many terrible conclusions, accused the other one, and then they miraculously forgave each other because they love each other... I'm all for a sappy romance, but this is too much for me. I hope I am the only reader who feels this way, because I adore Abbi Glines and hope that other readers will find a different outcome of this book when they read it. I'm still going to snatch up as many Abbi Glines books I can afford, but I think I might be done with The Field Party series, if anymore are released in the future, because I just haven't been feeling these characters the entire time I've read this series. I am very glad I got a chance to read this eARC, and I'm looking forward to see what else Abbi Glines will write!

    While this is a "Field Party" novel, it is more like teen problem novel than a romance novel. Both main characters face deep problems and both have to overcome large issues.

    *****3.5 Stars*****I have never read any of the Field Party series but after finishing this book in one sitting I know that I am going to check them out ASAP. Tallulah has been mocked and ridiculed for as long as she can remember...she is the fat girl at her school but through out all the teasing Nash has always had her back with comments and smiles. When Tallulah hears Nash laugh about a comment directed at her she vows that she will get revenge on everyone when she transforms herself.

I have read other Abbi Glines and this book was no exception but I feel like I didn't love this book simply because of the side story involving Tallulah...I don't want to spoil anything but I just didnt' like the storyline between her and the teacher/coach. Other than that I really liked seeing Tallulah and Nash confide in each other and grow closerThanks to Simon & Schuster for the ARC!

    I've been enjoying the Field Party series so I was excited for a new one. It tackled a lot, from Nash dealing with his injury and dreams of football being over, to Tallulah going from an outcast to popular, to a new football coach who I didn't trust right away. I did miss the characters from the first three books who have graduated but Nash and his crew seem very able to carry on the football team and the series.The book had the typical Abbi Glines feel to it.

Quick to read, perfect to grab and head outside or to the beach. It had a dual POV, misunderstandings between the two main characters that kept them apart, small issues that seemed huge to them, larger issues that were a theme through the whole book. I liked what she did with Nash's story, focusing on him having to come to terms with what his injury meant for his future and how hard it was to see all his friends still playing the sport he loved. I thought I would be less invested in Tallulah's story since I'm not usually a fan of someone coming back "hot" to get revenge, and her plan seemed a little naive. I did like Nash and Tallulah together. He was overprotective and she was naive and innocent, both were stubborn and it led to a lot of fights and misunderstandings that could have been avoided if they just talked to each other. Of the supporting characters, Nash's cousin Ryker played the biggest role with their friend Asa also hanging around quite a bit. Either of them would be my guess for the next book. Hopefully there is one.*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I cannot wait for August for this book! The only books I've read from Abbi Glines have been the field party series because they have a love story, but also all the main characters are struggling with real problems and these books are so deep. I've tried reading other series from Abbi Glines but they're so shallow compared to the field party. I love all the characters and their stories in Lawton, but I'm really excited for this one to see the girl struggle with insecurities about weight and how s I cannot wait for August for this book!

    Received an ARC courtesy of the publisher via Edelweiss.3.5 stars (view spoiler)[I was going to give it a solid 4 stars; however, the main conflict of the story was resolved a little too quickly for me. I would have liked more to the story. I put a spoiler tag, but I am trying to be vague as not to ruin too much for anyone. (hide spoiler)]

    I really liked the characters, but I feel like everything escalated way too quick. You need more time to build everything and I believe only a few weeks went by in time frame. Still, not a bad addition to the series.
