~ The Guy on the Right by Kate Stewart (The Underdogs #1) ~
Release Date ~ July 25, 2019
~ Synopsis ~
Strike One-My mother named me Theodore after her favorite chipmunk.
Not cool, Mom.
I‘ve spent most of my life answering to Teddy, because I couldn’t make Theo work.
Except for here. College. The place where all bets are off, and I’ve managed to redeem myself.
There’s only one problem, my new roommate, Troy, is football royalty and looks like he stepped off the set of an Abercrombie shoot.
Doesn’t matter, I cook a mean breakfast for his panty parade, and we get along well.
And anyway, this year I got the girl. And she’s perfect.
That’s right. Theodore Houseman, former band geek, now marching band rock star has finally landed the girl of his dreams.
Everything is perfect.
That is, until Troy takes a good look at her.
I’m not going down without a fight. As a matter of fact, I’m not going down at all. As glorious as these days may be for my all-star roommate, Laney is my end game.
I may not know much about play strategy, but I’ve been the good guy my whole life. I’ve been listening and I know exactly what women want. Framed in a picture standing next to me, Troy may seem like Mr. Perfect, but he’s underestimating the guy on the right.
Spoiler alert: In this story, the underdog is going to win.
I’ll be honest, at first, I thought this was just going to be one of those light and fun romances. However, I should’ve known that in true Kate Stewart style, The Guy on the Right was also full of heart, hope, and just so much more!
Theo and Laney’s characters couldn’t have been more different, and that’s one of the many things that made them tick. They perfectly complemented each other by filling in each other’s gaps and indifferences. I loved their playful banter, and sure, they had their roadblocks along the way. But as their friendship blossomed and slowly burned and simmered into a full-blown passion, it felt so genuine and honest to see them free-falling into love.
‘I want more, but I would rather go without than lose him. It’s fear that has me shaking in his arms. I’ve never felt so much in my life at once. Passion, lust, fear, ache, need, hope.’
The writing and the story were fantastic! Kate Stewart always blows me away with her creativity and the way she wraps me up in all the feels gets me every time. I stayed up until the wee morning hours reading and couldn’t put this down, and although it isn’t a sad story, I even had a few tears because the ending was so touching and sweet. Did I mention the passion? Boy, can Kate Stewart build up the passion in her romances!
‘The gift of knowing him, of seeing him this way, of being on this side of his affection. I might’ve fallen slowly, but I just landed impossibly deep.’
I loved the secondary characters with Theo and Laney’s friends and family and their fun, loving, and more than honest support. Even Troy’s character got to me, and I’m so excited to hear his story next as well!
With the ‘Grannisms’, hashtags from Theo and Laney’s Instagram account, music, and absolutely swoon-worthy moments, The Guy on the Right completely stole my heart and clearly isn’t going to let it go anytime soon. I thoroughly enjoyed this fun and dreamy romance and highly recommend it!
