When she’s forced to tutor bad boy football quarterback, Raven Davenport, she soon discovers all the things she’s missing in her relationship with Collin. Will she succumb to the temptations enticing her or will Collin be able to convince his sweet, innocent fiancée that his love for her is genuine despite his lack of affection? (This story will be told in 3 installments)


So this read happen by chance. I had seen it on Amazon while browsing and saw the football player and baseball player on the cover and thought to myself, "this looks like something I would like". I saw that it was free to download, so I said "why not". Well unfortunately that was as far as I got with it, I downloaded it and then forgot all about it. I have a really busy reading schedule due to all the review books my team gets and that is what I call "pleasure reading", and those books just sit around for a long time waiting on me to pick them u sometime. Every once in a while Ill binge read on those "pleasure reads" but honestly, it been a while. So thanks to my recent trip to Vegas and the fact that I didn't want to brother my roommate with the light being on, I pulled out my iPad and checked my library on the kindle app, to see what I had waiting to read. Immediately the cover of Opposing Sides caught my eyes. So I began reading it at that exact moment. 

I was hooked right away, I would read at night or if we would come up to the room to change. Then on the flight back, I inhaled what was left of the book. Just ask my roommate that weekend, I couldn't stop talking about "Raven" and she downloaded right away. This book brought me back to when I fell head over heels for Miranda Kenneally's Catching Jordan book. They shared similarities like football and fun sexy characters you immediately connected with. I don't know about you but I'm a HUGE fan of any book, be it YA, NA or adult that contains some type of sport or athlete in it. Usually these books are great reads. So its no surprise how much I LOVED Opposing Sides. So when I finished reading it on the plane, let me tell you how annoyed I was, I was 30,000 ft above in the air with no wi-fi to access Amazon, so I could download the next book in the series. 

Once on land and everything in order, I began texting the author and just tweeting "HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS BOOK". So I really hope this review serves it purpose and EVERYONE downloads this story, because just like I am, you will be caught in "The Raven's Trap" too.

Alright I guess I should write about the story a little bit. In Opposing Sides, you are introduced to Lexi, a senior in college. Lexi is dating the school's all-star pitcher. These two are engaged to be married and everyone is thrilled, well except maybe Lexi. Say what? Yea Lexi has been questioning her relationship with Collin. She wonders if they are together because it's the right thing to do and/or everyone approves, like their parents. Collin is not the most expressive loving fiancee, he puts his sport before everything and Lexi isn't sure she is ready to accept that anymore. Lexi doesn't think its to much to ask to get some affection that shows her how much Collin loves her and is ready to be married to her.

This is when you cue in the university's sinful Raven in the picture. Lexi has been assigned to tutor Raven and this seems to set things in motion right away. Raven turn son his super charm and Lexi has some serious work ahead of her to fight that charm. What will happen when the bad boy football player pays more attention than the handsome baseball player? One of these sports will come out victorious in Opposing Sides. Download your FREE copy today and get trapped in "The Raven's Trap".
