What happens when an almost thirty-year-old virgin agrees to let her Scottish footballer best friend give her some lessons in seduction?
Lots of banter, awkwardness, jealousy, and heat.
Midfielder Maclay “Mac” Logan is a loud-mouthed, tattooed ginger content with focusing on football. But when an adorable, freckled seamstress comes barreling into his life, he finds Netflix-And-Bickering with her to be his new favorite pastime.
Freya Cook is used to being the invisible woman with a needle and thread, offering cheeky punchlines as she helps dress London’s finest. She’s plus-sized in body and spirit, and other than her friendship with Mac, talking to the opposite sex is one skill she never mastered.
However, after one innocent game of Never Have I Ever, Mac offers to play Love Coach for Freya.
What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off.
Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don't fall in love with your best friend.
Blindsided is a full length (97,000 words) contemporary rom-com standalone with a sports theme.
Blindsided is the newest addition to Amy Daw’s London Footballers series and if you haven’t met this group of ridiculously hot footballers, do yourself a favor and get on it! These boys are HOT HOT HOT and Mac, the main man in Blindsided is no exception.
Blindsided follows Mac, a player for Bethnal Green FC and Freya, a seamstress and best friends with Allie and Sloan (women from books earlier in the series). Freya is a heroine after my own heart. Curvaceous and gorgeous, so strong but still insecure, hilarious and awkward….I mean..who doesn’t have conversations with their food?! Mac… *girly swoon*… This tall tatted ginger Scottish footballer is gonna be lighting up fantasies for a long, long long time. He’s everything you want in a book boyfriend sculpted into one ridiculously hot package.
Freya and Mac have been best friends since they met. They may bicker like an old married couple, but they are all but joined at the hip. Freya’s confession that she is a giant awkward squid around men (well, men that aren’t Mac) he decides she is in desperate need of a love coach and that he’s just the man for the job. It’s all fun and games until real feelings develop, feelings that neither expected nor were they prepared for.
Everybody says don’t fall in love with your best friend, but what happens when you do?
I can not express my love for this book enough. Seriously, as much as I have a deep and abiding love for Gareth (Amy’s leading man in Surrender and Dominate) Blindsided is absolutely my new favorite of Amy’s books. The banter between Mac and Freya is laugh out loud hilarious and total relationship goals. Watching Freya and Mac develop as not only individuals but as two halves of one whole is breathtaking. Their relationship grows so organically and proves the best foundation for deep and abiding love is a solid friendship. Their ability to be playful but still open and honest is amazing to see.
There really is everything to love in this book.
