Description

"Sexy and twisty, Spinning Out will hook you fast and keep you flipping pages until the very end." -New York Times bestselling author Meghan March

~ ~ ~

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 s**t together. The cherry on top of my fuckup 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.

    What an amazing story. I listen to the audio and followed along in the book, though the whispersync did not work with this book but I kind of wonder if that is not amazon’s fault. I find that happens a lot. The narrators did a wonderful job. I fell in love with Arrow. He was this hot sexy carrying college man. He had a big heart though I am sure he did not feel like he did sometimes. I can not blame him from feeling selfish when it came to Mia. The heart wants what the heart wants. Mia was a sweet girl but I felt she was not only being unfair to herself but to Brogan as well by leading him along. She might of been with Brogan but Arrow had her heart. There are some pretty sad parts in this story and cried through some of it, some heartfelt parts and, some pretty steamy parts as well. My heart broke for Arrow. The guilt he carried with him. He was destroying himself over this guilt. There were so many lies and these lies are destroying so many people. Funny how the truth can set you free. I am glad I took out time to listen to this story.

    I really liked this book, could barely put it down! I thought it would be weird and confusing going from present to past but the author did it really well. Great read!

    By Great super duper book!!!
    The characters were too shallow although the book was long. The storyline was drawn out way too long for the simple plot.
  • Love!

  • New adult and college with love triangle and crime

    Spinning Out was about the choices these characters made, all in the name of love. With love came fear. The story was comprised of a variety of themes: sports romance, crime, love triangle, new adult and college. With elements of friendship, regret, loss, and secrets. It was a character driven story with alternating points of view. The story was separated into parts. These parts delivered both past and present material with the timeline jumping around. Mia and Arrow were the main characters who held secrets and told lies to protect and cover the past. Mia was a nanny. Arrow a football player. Mia lived in a trailer. Arrow lived in a mansion. Mia went to a community college. Arrow went to a university. Mia’s a townie. Arron’s from the Valley. If you haven’t figured it out yet they are from different worlds. At times the pace was slow and I found myself skimming. At some points it was tiresome to read. The constant push/pull between Arrow and Mia was tiresome. I found I was more interested in discovering who committed the crime than the blooming off-limits romance. The prologue laid out most of the details beforehand leaving only a few surprises. For the most part this was a predictable story. I can usually tolerate an off-limits trope but Spinning Out had me disappointed in the main female character. She was confused and allowed her parents choices to control her choices. The secrets were too much and the grief was too heavy. She carried a heavy burden that wasn’t hers to carry. So many obstacles stood in the way of these two being together that I started to lose interest. This was the first book in The Blackhawk Boys series. Yet it could still be read as a standalone. Spinning Out was Arrow and Mia’s story. Rushing In (Chris’s story), Going Under (Sebastian’s story), Falling Hard (Keegan’s story), and In Too Deep (Mason’s story).

    Arrow is reeling from all the changes going on in his life. He is on house arrest. He is in love with someone he has to see everyday. He cannot tell her how he feels. And it is killing him. Mia has a lot go on as well. She took a job from her father's enemy. She is trying to get through school. She is also dealing with the man who makes her hot sleeping next door. These characters are really hot! This story makes me want to cry and scream all at the same time. I was pleased with the banter, heat and pace. I cannot wait to read more in The Blackhawk Boys series.

    I loved this book and have become a fan of the BlackHawk Boys. This story had me pulling my hair because I was torn. I was hoping for someone to commit a wrong so things could be right, but it wasn't so black and white. I'm definitely gonna purchase the next installment because Chris was such a sweet guy in this book. Glad he gets his own book!!!!!

    I'm sorry to say that I did not like this book very much at all. I skipped over so many pages! I've loved every other book by Lexi Ryan and couldn't wait for a new release from her. This was a disappointment and I'll probably be skipping the others in the series.
