M's Review of The Guy In The Middle by Kate Stewart

 I was born to play and bred to win.

My priorities were instilled in me early on—family and football. Those ideals led me to TGU and a coach whose ironclad principles mirrored my own.

With one last college season to play, my goal was singular—get drafted. By realizing my NFL dream, I could save my family, our ranch, and the only home I’d ever known.
Two birds, one ball.

Playing hard was my only option, but there’s always a wild card.

For all of my planning and hard work, I never anticipated falling for the coach's daughter. Harper was a fair catch, but who knew loving her could be the one play to throw my career before it started or that the weight of our secret would change the game.

My Review
4.5 Stars

Ever since I read Troy and Clarissa, I've been anxiously waiting to get my hands on Lance and Harper.
Harper is Lance's coaches daughter and pretty much forbidden for obvious reasons. For this reason, they decide to keep their relationship super private, meeting each other in secret, sneaking in and out of Lance's apartment. You know what they say about secrets.... well yeah Coach finds out and it isn't pretty. From then on my heart was broken for Lance and Harper, it's like the world was against them from the start and they never stood a shot.

"I know you feel that." " I do," she says, a little breathless. I grip the back of her neck from where I lay and pull her towards me, my thumb sliding along her throat. "Closer, Harper, I want to run something by you." Swooning over here!!

As usual Kate Stewart gives us a book filled with emotions, emotions that so many real people can understand and struggle with on a daily basis. I loved how Harper wasn't considered "conventionally beautiful". This is the reality of real life and I believe that many women can relate to the constant state of turmoil Lance and Harper's relationship always seemed to be in.

"Yeah," I say, hearing the pride in my voice. "She's incredible." I look over to Trevor. "So, tell me honestly, little brother, would you be the guy to take that ballerina and put her back in the box."
