In the first part, Laney’s dad has moved the two of them back to his hometown in Alabama for her senior year of high school where she meets Kam, the all star quarterback. Laney is attracted to Kam but she does not want to have anything to do with Kam who has decided after a three year relationship to just play the field in his senior year. Kam wants Laney from the moment he sees her and is determined to get her. After a football injury, Laney becomes Kam’s tutor and their relationship blossoms from there. When Kam believes his football career is over, Laney is the one who sees him through.
The second part of the book follows Kam and Laney into college where they end up splitting up in their freshman year because Kam is always so busy with football that he is never there for Laney when she needs him. In their senior year, the two are in a class together and the chemistry between them is just as strong. When a scandal hits, Laney is once again there for Kam. Kam is determined not to let Laney go this time.
The third part of this book follows Kam and Laney into life after school where Kam is drafted into the NFL and Laney begins her career along with dealing with Kam’s fame. I loved both of these characters. I loved how Laney kept Kam grounded and when everyone else wanted Kam for his star status, he knew that Laney loved him as a person and could care less about his fame. The story flows really well and makes for a quick read. I highly recommend this one!
In this series of three college / YA novellas, we meet Kamden Ellis, local football phenomenon, and Laney Ellis, new town arrival, in what starts in high school and moves through College and into the adult world of NFL drafts and Architecture.
Laney’s parents have divorced, and due to her mother’s extensive work travels, she’s living with her dad. He’s decided on a change of life from a celebrity chef in New York, moving them to his home town of Nowhere, Alabama. She has just started her last year of high school and is just as attracted to Kam as the rest of the girls, but she’s just “not interested in being just another touchdown in (his) end zone.”
Recovering from an almost fatal football injury, Kam begins to realise that his life may not be all that he planned. His months long recovery is made bearable by home tutoring from the very clever and confident Laney who doesn’t bow to his superior ego as the other girls do.
Yet it is her who he truly is captivated by, and whose company he really craves, since the day she started school at the beginning of the year. Luck, as always, is on this local hero’s side, and has made the new girl his chemistry lab partner, where he finds out just how down to earth and intelligent she really is. Those other girls? They were just the entertaining place-holders until the real love of his life arrived to take her rightful place at his side, and wearing his jersey. As they move through their young adult life, things aren’t easy for them, and both Laney and Kam have to realise they can’t always have everything that they want.
The key theme in this series of books for me was the unconditional love of a mother and a girlfriend, who see you for who you are, not what you can do for them. It’s also about being with those you love through the highs of life and the lows, and also about recognising regret and finally acting on it. At times I was completely and utterly gutted for them, because life doesn’t always go as planned. True character shows through in how they look inwards and learn from their mistakes.
The secondary characters in the form of family and friends really build on what is already a solid base of this story, and I highly recommend the Southern Nights Series to anyone who loves Young Adult, Second Chance and Sports romances. Or hell, anyone who loves reading a great romance with beautiful characters. It certainly ticked all my boxes.
I did read this as an ARC, but I’ve bought my own copy. Absolutely 5 Stars!
You can always trust MNever to come up with an engaging story complete with super awesome characters , a touch of angst and a whole lot of super hot sex.
Kamdyn Ellis is a high school football Star. He drips sweet southern charm and everybody falls in love with him, except Laney summers who's immune , or at least tries to.
It's a coming of age love story, very hot, very passionate and full of memorable scenes
I Loved the journey of these two characters have. Starting from High School, through college and to NFL.
They practically grow up together, fall in love, break hearts, get shoved apart, learn about life, stumble, make mistakes and push their relationship to the max. Yet their love pulls them back again and again towards each other
Kamdyn undergoes severe injury, concussion, a golfing accident, but like A champion, bounces back up.
Laney is career oriented and very driven. Its tough to commit to a rising celebtity and a full time , demanding career. But they somehow make it out together because the strong love they have for each other, just doesn't let them stray away.
M never writing style is just fantastic. A very engrossing read. I loved that kam and laney had an impromptu date on 50 yard line in the stadium one night. Lying under the stars. Very hot scene, very entertaining
Very much enjoyed reading this
