It started with a lie. A night of blurred lines between a teacher and a student.
I wasn’t her student, yet it was the single most defining night of my life.
I’ve never been the man she thinks I am.
Most people have no idea about the life I’ve lived or the words that ring true when it comes to me—still waters run deep.
But you’d be hard-pressed to find a coed on the TGU campus who knows otherwise…because I’ve never corrected them.
The clock is ticking down, it’s Fourth and Inches with the ball inside the one-yard line and the focus is on me, The Guy on the Left. I’ve never felt like a football god, inside I’m…just Troy.
It’s time to set the record straight.
For my son, I‘ll find the strength.
In her eyes, I’m determined to gain redemption.
I will have them both, even if I have to take my eye off the ball.
*The Guy on the Left is a stand alone novel in the Underdogs Series. This is Troy’s story.


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Wow, I have a whole new respect for Troy! I was wondering what his deal was in Guy Ok The Right, bc he came off as a real jerk with the whole hitting on Theo’s girlfriend thing. We get a totally different side of him in Guy On The Left, and my heart broke for him!

Kate Stewart did a great job of making Clarissa unlikable so I was rooting for Troy. Yes, he was super wrong in lying about his age the night they slept together. But she held it against him for far too long after Dante was born. She took years away from them both, and that was wrong. Especially since she knew Troy was taking care of them from afar and being respectful of the boundaries she set.

There is a ton of push and pull between them as they go around and around of whether or or they were going to actually date. And even then, Clarissa is a bitch. She holds things against Troy that are not his fault when she was the one who kept his kid away from him, jumps to conclusions, and doesn’t place any trust in him even after he proves over and over again that he wanted to be in her and his son’s life.

Troy had me sobbing during the breakup. Sobbing. For a gruff college athlete, he was so super vulnerable. Of course, this book ends on a wonderful HEA in the future, so it all works out just fine 🙂

This is a standalone, and takes place at the same time as TGOTR. But you don’t have to have read that one. You will see Troy’s POV of some scenes with Theo, which is cool. Now on to Lance and Haven!!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
