REVIEW – THE GUY IN THE MIDDLE (The Underdogs, #3) by Kate Stewart


I was born to play and bred to win.

My priorities were instilled in me early on—family and football. Those ideals led me to TGU and a coach whose ironclad principles mirrored my own.

With one last college season to play, my goal was singular—get drafted. By realizing my NFL dream, I could save my family, our ranch, and the only home I’d ever known.

Two birds, one ball.

Playing hard was my only option, but there’s always a wild card.

For all of my planning and hard work, I never anticipated falling for the coach’s daughter. Harper was a fair catch, but who knew loving her could be the one play to throw my career before it started or that the weight of our secret would change the game.

”What if this moment, right here, is the moment that changes your life?”





FINALLY!! It’s been a LONG five months wait to get Lance & Harper’s COMPLETE story and it was so worth the agony! I love angsty sports romances and Kate Stewart took the angst to an almost unbearably painful level, but oh, was it the best kind of torture! Lance and Harper are two book characters you will find it hard not to love with all of your hearts. Their journey to a happily ever after is filled with incredible steam, heart, and so much emotional torment. The ”Underdogs” series is going up there as my absolute favorite by this amazingly talented author, and also as one of my top-ranked sports romance series of all time. It’s one I will be re-reading many times over!




Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5+++++
Angst: 5+++++
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
