Blog Tour: Community Service

Title: Community Service
Author: Dakota Madison
Genre: Contemporary Romance
As Maggie Mitchell enters her final semester of college, the last thing she wants is a guy in her life, let alone two of them.

Her new lab partner, Sawyer Reed, is still the overconfident and sexy jock that made fun of her in high school. The only thing that has changed is that he now uses a wheelchair, the result of a skiing accident.

Jude Marino is a hot actor who all the girls want and would do anything to get. He works at a local theater where Maggie has been assigned to complete community services hours after rear-ending a police car.

Both Sawyer and Jude want Maggie but only one of them will be able to capture her heart.

4.5 Sweet Romantic Stars
If you are looking for a lighthearted sweet easy read, then Community Service is the book for you.  It is a wonderful young adult romance that will just leave you feeling happy.  Sometimes you just need a book that is not filled with all the angst, heartbreak, and betrayal, and this book provides that breath of fresh air.  

Community service is kind of a love triangle in a way, but once you read it, there really was no argument of who to pick between the two guys.  So first, let me tell you a little about our heroine.  Maggie is the quiet little geek who went through high school unnoticed, but once in college, really came into her appearance and learned to be herself.  She has just been accepted for a science internship and couldn't be happier.  On the first day of her internship, she is reunited with hot, sweet Sawyer, the popular jock from high school who is now in a wheelchair after a skiing accident.  Now, enter the love triangle part; when leaving the internship, Maggie is slightly distracted by thoughts of Sawyer and ends up rear-ending a police car.  Her punishment, community service at the local theater where she meets hot actor, Jude.  Now, let me tell you a little bit about Jude, he is a hottie and he knows it!  He is arrogant and egotistical and I didn't care for him one bit.  From the outside looking in you can tell that he is a straight player, but for some reason Maggie has a little bit of trouble seeing that and begins to be sucked into his charm.  

I'll stop right there and won't tell you more because I don't want to give too much away.  You will not regret picking up this book and will be captured by this sweet wonderful romance! 
“Looking for a lab partner?” I heard a voice say from behind. The voice sounded familiar but I couldn’t quite place it.
When I turned around, I was surprised to see Sawyer Reed staring at me. I hadn’t seen him since high school. He was a year older than me but I still knew who he was. Everyone in school knew Sawyer Reed. He was a popular jock who all the kids adored. He still had the same boyish good looks that I remembered so well. And the same sexy little grin that could light up any room. And the same killer green eyes that would drive girls wild. The only thing that was different, and it was really different, was that he was in a wheelchair.
It completely floored me.
I had the biggest crush on Sawyer Reed. I think every girl in our school did. It was hard not to. He could charm the pants off of any girl in a matter of minutes, and usually did, or so I heard. I wasn’t a girl that guys wanted to charm the pants off when I was in high school. I was awkward bordering on geeky. My mom called me a late bloomer. 
And I definitely wasn’t on Sawyer’s radar…
Except when we were on the school bus. Every day when he passed by me on his way to the back of the bus, he’d call me Freaky Four Eyes. Not that I didn’t deserve the moniker. For some reason, when I was a teenager, I thought it was a good idea to wear Marilyn Monroe Cat Eye glasses. Not that I looked anything like Marilyn Monroe. In high school, I had frizzy brown hair and the body of a 12-year-old boy. I could have been called the antithesis of Marilyn Monroe, if there was such a thing. But I sure loved those glasses.
I didn’t think there was any way that Sawyer would remember me. I looked a lot different than I did in high school. I found product, so my long brown hair now fell into controlled waves and I wore contacts. I’d also filled out a little. I was still no Marilyn Monroe in the curves department but I had a decent figure.

And why would he remember some younger girl he teased on the bus anyway?
