Review: Deuces Wild by Ella Goode


Published Sept. 2019

Everyone thinks Carter is a jerk, even his teammates on the football team. The guy runs the locker room like they’re in the military, scowls at everyone on and off the field, and never, ever socializes with anyone at FU High. If Mallory had known any of this, maybe she wouldn’t have hid in his car that night after the Championship game but she was on the run and it was the first car she came across that was unlocked. But she didn’t know and now Carter won’t let her leave.


He says she’s a hassle but every time trouble comes around, Carter’s the first one to defend her. For a guy who says he hates people, he sure is nice to Mallory. She doesn’t know what to make of it, or him. He’s a wildcard, but, then again, so is Mallory. Perhaps the two of them are meant to be together. Carter seems to think so.


May be spoilers:

Deuces Wild is part of the FU High series. It has 32 chapters with an epilogue and is about Carter and Mallory.

From the very first chapter it caught my attention.

They meet when she hides in his car. He’s very grumpy and not very nice in the beginning, but she doesn’t take his crap.

They both have similar pasts with their moms. They both feel the connection but they try to deny it as long as they can.

She’s on the run from her mother’s boyfriend as he wants her.

I do love their bantering back and forth. I think they bring out the best in each other. I love that we get to see the characters from the 1st in the series.

She does decide to take off when she realizes her past is going to come back for her and she doesn’t want it on Carter. He finds her not very long after.

Steam doesn’t hit until later in the story. Both are virgins.

No real drama, just them figuring each other out and dealing with her past.

Flowed well, I thought. I loved how Carter was with her after the first little bit.

Good read. No cheating, no ow/om drama, an hour or so separation.

Epilogue is a few years down the road and they are happily married. Good story. I gave it 🌟🌟🌟🌟. Thanks for reading.
