~ Synopsis ~
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.
The Guy in the Middle is a stand-alone novel in the Underdog Series. This is Lance’s story.
Since seriously falling in love with Theo in The Guy on the Right, I’ve been so excited for more of this Underdog Series by Kate Stewart. The Guy in the Middle features Lance’s story, the quiet roommate that no one ever sees except on the football field.
Lance and Harper’s connection felt so simple and sweet, although it was really anything but. Lance carried the weight of the world on his shoulders, and I loved his determination and loyalty to his family. Harper also put her family first but wanted to see the world and follow her dreams. Their timing in finding each other couldn’t be worse, but I loved how they shared such an understanding and appreciation for each other. Unfortunately, their safe bubble couldn’t protect them from the outside world forever and time and distance kept them apart.
Overall, I loved Lance and Harper’s passionate romance and really enjoyed the angst and emotion of the story. Perhaps it’s because I previously read the Fair Catch prequel novella last year, but the flow seemed a little choppy at times. However, I’ve got to bump my rating, because this also has one of the best epilogues ever for all of the characters in this series!
I highly recommend picking up The Underdogs Series, as you’re sure to fall in love with Theo in The Guy on the Right and Troy in The Guy on the Left as well!
