Once, the only thing that mattered to me was football - training, playing, and earning my place on the best team at every level. I had it all, and I threw it away with a semester of drugs, alcohol, and pissing off anyone who tried to stop me. Now I'm suspended from the team, on house arrest, and forced to spend six months at home to get my shit together. The cherry on top of my f--kup sundae? Sleeping in the room next to mine is my best friend's girl, Mia Mendez - the only woman I've ever loved and a reminder of everything I regret.
I'm not sure if having Mia so close will be heaven or hell. She's off-limits - and not just because she's working for my dad. Her heart belongs to someone else. But since the accident that killed her brother and changed everything, she walks around like a zombie, shutting out her friends and ignoring her dreams. We're both broken, numb, and stuck in limbo.
Until I break my own rules and touch her.
Until she saves me from my nightmares by climbing into my bed.
Until the only thing I want more than having Mia for myself is to protect her from the truth.
I can't rewrite the past, but I refuse to leave her heart in the hands of fate. For this girl, I'd climb into the sky and rearrange the stars.
The Blackhawk Boys, an edgy, sexy, sports romance series from New York Times best-seller Lexi Ryan. Football. Secrets. Lies. Passion. These boys don't play fair. Which Blackhawk Boy will steal your heart?

Love triangle purgatory
Once again, the term "never judge a book by its cover" rings true except in this instant, the cover was much better than the book! I really tried to like this book and I have to admit that the author did a great job with the flashbacks back and forth which slowly revealed the twists and turns of the story. But there were many things that just annoyed me! Firstly, I didn't feel the chemistry between Arrow and Mia. Nothing sizzled between them and their sexy times were meh. And Mia was so confusing with her hot and cold signals for Arrow and Brogan. I wanted to whack her over the head on many occasions! Also her reason for not choosing Arrow (because of his family status and the history with their parents) seemed to be convenient to her only when she was trying to push him away. In the scenes post accident, this major reason for not choosing him suddenly wasn't a factor anymore. And we don't get an explanation why she is suddenly trying to sleep with him again. Mia wasn't a particularly special heroine either and yet she had guys falling for her left, right and centre, and I just didn't see the appeal. And Arrow was a meh hero - he wasn't alpha and just stepped aside for his best friend to win the girl. I like my heroes to be the type that sees the heroine and claims her as his! To be honest, I liked the side characters more like Chris, Mason and Sebastian!! And the ending was also meh - it was rushed and felt incomplete to me especially since there was no epilogue. 2 MEH stars!
