Publisher's Summary

If I met Alexandra DeLuca for the first time today, I would only need one word to describe her: mine. She's everything she was when we said goodbye. Beautiful, stubborn, sweet...and off-limits.

After two years leading separate lives, our worlds have collided. Now that she's back home working and taking classes beside me, she's bound to make me lose my mind. She's all I've ever wanted, all I've ever dreamed of, and the one thing I can never have.

Not because she's my best friend's sister.

Not because all four DeLuca brothers would come at me with fists swinging if I hurt her.

Not even because she's way better than I will ever deserve.

I keep my distance because we didn't meet for the first time today. We met five years ago when I was a different person. When my demons ruled me. Even though I've changed - even though I've gotten my life together and become a better man - I can't change the past. And the secrets that haunt me would destroy her.

But I'm not the only one with secrets, and when the truth comes out, I don't know where to turn. What do you do when your world washes away beneath your feet and you feel like you're drowning? What do you do when the woman you promised yourself you'd never touch is the only thing that can keep you from going under?

Love this story and these narrators!!! ❤❤❤

WOW! Another amazing story by Lexi Ryan. Sebastian and Alex have known each other since high school as they shared classes together. Alex suffers unimaginable loss and they both leave town after high school for different reasons. A couple years later they run into each other again and the feelings they both had are still there even though neither has ever spoken it out loud. But the past dictates the present and this keeps Sebastian from acting on those feelings. But so many things keep putting them together even though he remains steadfast in not crossing the line. This book had me on edge wondering what would/would not happen next and I was surprised by the ending. Will the past catch up to them, will they ever break through and give into their feelings.... I read the book, but the audible brought out even more emotions... I didn't think that was possible!

Book 3 and it doesn’t disappoint

When I started this series and the first book was a total emotional roller coaster I didn’t expect following books to be able to compete. But every singe book so far is so special. Sebastian is also such a babe. I enjoyed his character a lot!

Liked it

There is an interesting story outside of the romance. The characters have depth and are believable. Some heat. Good dialogue. Suspense.

Everyone's a Pawn

When your 15 you always trust your parents. When you're a twin you share everything right? When you see your life spiraling out of control and you can't stop it write it all down in a journal like you've done since you could write it tells your life story

Wow

This book may have been the most difficult so far. I understand and relate to scars even if my own aren’t visible. We are all marked by something that changes us and leaves us different. This book is a reminder and while it’s a beautiful story, it hits hard. As most of these books tend to do.

Writing style: Multiple POVs – Alexandra’s, Sebastian’s & Martina’s via her journal

Cover and chapter design gush: This is another stylish and appealing cover. Additionally, I always get a little thrill out of seeing a bit of font color inside an e-book. It’s so visually pleasing to my eyes, and I really appreciate the extra style flair.

Would I recommend this sports romance novel?
Most definitely yes! The entire series thus far has been very engrossing, and this one was no exception. The added suspense of why Alex’s twin Martina came to be in the meth lab and the mystery of who Blue Eyes was were especially intriguing.

I’m sailing through The Blackhawk Boys series via audiobook. So far, since I’ve started this series late last week, I have had a lot of errands to run in addition to my regular listening time when I do chores, drive to and from work, listen during my meal breaks, and even driving through the very congested Hollywood traffic last night for an after work event. What has impressed me the most so far is that Author Lexi Ryan has been really good at tackling important social issues without being preachy in each of the featured couples’ novel. I’m really digging this New Adult / Sports romance series loads!

Coming up next:
Falling Hard (The Blackhawk Boys, #4) by Lexi Ryan. I am currently several hours deep into listening to that one already.

All the secrets!

I do love a good New Adult romance and Going Under, Book 3 of the Blackhawk Boys by Lexi Ryan is NA done right!

This had a bit of everything: off-limits romance, the best friends' sister and some sports romance thrown in for good measure

There is a lot of back story that slowly get revealed between Sebastian and Alex. This one had me on the edge of my seat.

The narration by Summer Roberts & Tyler Donnes is great as usual - confident yet emotional at the right times.

I cannot wait for the next book in this series
