Read:: Spinning Out by Lexi Ryan

This one was an emotional read. It had very few light and fluffy moments where you felt this couple was awesome. It was a lot of two hearts fighting. Two hearts struggling to live with the past. It was two hearts that belong together fighting each other every step of the way.

We meet Arrow, who is on house arrest, lost his football life, lost his best friend, and doesn't know what to do with the girl in his house. Mia, is working for Arrow's family as a nanny. She is trying to make a little money, wants to go to college, is taking care of her alcoholic dad, and has a boyfriend who is injured.

These two have everything working against them but together they are a good couple. Arrow takes good care of Mia, showing her how she needs to be loved. She hasn't had that since her brother was around.

When everything comes out with the accident, the injury, and his love, it was gut wrenching at times but Lexi wrote it so well.

I cannot wait for Christopher's story next.

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 shit 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.
