This is book # 5 in the University Park series. By the authors own words: **This novella takes place before the epilogue in The Winning Side and A Different Side. This book can be read as a standalone, but it is recommended you read the series.**
The story continues for Raven and Lexi as they are now in New Orleans and he is beginning his NFL career. They are steadily working on their relationship moving forward and planning for the future.
Lexi is adjusting to living in a new city, being away from her family and being loved by Raven's. There is so much going on and she is afraid still, that Raven will give in to his dark side and she will lose everything. He assures her all the time that he loves her, but she cannot help it.
Raven is stressed and worried. He is trying to be there for Lexi, not let his team down and take them all the way. This is his chance and he does not want to blow it.
I loved this book! This is such a good and endearing book about how love endures - even when there are cracks that can be filled or weaken you. Such a pure example of unconditional love and HEA that can happen against all odds! Grab you a copy, you won't regret it!! I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
