The power of a lie

The Guy on the Left (Underdogs #2) by Kate Stewart

So, Ms Stewart went there, she really did…. I won’t ruin it by saying more, but she really did and it’s amazing.

It’s the story of a lie. A simple but damaging lie, that means Clarissa feels entitled to hold onto her anger. Troy works hard to be forgiven, for her to see him as the man she needs but she clings onto Troy the teenager.

It’s the perfect amount of angst, heartbreak and redemption. It completely consumed me, I didn’t know who I was cheering the most for. I loved how Ms Stewart had me warring with myself over which character was ‘right’ at every stage.

But ultimately I loved Troy. I loved how he grew into a man and how he fought with everything he had for a future with Clarissa. No matter what that’s love. And who doesn’t want that? We all crave it. Troy made me fall in love with love all over again. He was also super super sexy, so get those ovaries ready to do some overtime!

It is an emotional read but there are many light moments. Dante and Parker made me laugh, Parker really was fierce and such a game player!

Next up in this fantastic series is The Guy in the Middle, I cannot wait!
