If I met Alexandra DeLuca for the first time today, I would only need one word to describe her:
She's everything she was when we said goodbye. Beautiful, stubborn, sweet...and off-limits.
After two years leading separate lives, our worlds have collided. Now that she's back home working and taking classes beside me, she's bound to make me lose my mind.
She's all I've ever wanted, all I've ever dreamed of, and the one thing I can never have.
Not because she's my best friend's sister.
Not because all four DeLuca brothers would come at me with fists swinging if I hurt her.
Not even because she's way better than I will ever deserve.
I keep my distance because we didn't meet for the first time today. We met five years ago when I was a different person. When my demons ruled me. Even though I've changed—even though I've gotten my life together and become a better man—I can't change the past. And the secrets that haunt me would destroy her.
But I'm not the only one with secrets, and when the truth comes out, I don't know where to turn. What do you do when your world washes away beneath your feet and you feel like you're drowning? What do you do when the woman you promised yourself you'd never touch is the only one who can keep you from going under?

College Football Romance
This is the third book in the Blackhawk Boys series and each book is a standalone. This is a sweet and emotional college football romance. Sebastian has been attracted to Alexandra for years. Although, he knows he must keep his feeling to himself because Alexandra's overprotective brothers have made it clear she is off limits. Alexandra has always secretly had a crush on Sebastian but assumes he isn't interested in her.
Sebastian and Alexandra have a hard time keeping their feeling to themselves when they both return to their hometown and are together so much. They both attend the same college and also work together at Sebastian’s father’s garage. Sebastian is a college football star and he can get any girl he wants, but he is constantly thinking about Alexandra. Sebastian carries a lot of guilt for mistakes he made in the past and he is afraid to share this with anyone.
Alexandra doesn't have a lot of confidence. She bares scars both physically and emotionally from the fire her twin sister died in and is still having a hard time dealing with the tragedy. Alexandra is pretty, fun loving, loves to work on cars and has always been a tomboy. Unfortunately, she has four bossy, protective brothers who like to interfere and give her advice. This story moves slowly. Sebastian and Alexandra long for each other and I have to admit, I wish they could have worked through their problems sooner.
I love this series! This book had some major twists and turns and holy smokes did it get hot! A must read!!
These broken boys get better with every book!
I should know better than to start a Lexi Ryan book at 8pm. 9 hours later and I am reeling. In the BEST possible way. Sebastian. He is broken and yet so honest it broke my heart to think of what he went through. Alex's insecurities and fears were founded and that made this book so much more. Can't say enough great things about this series. (Oh, except it was good to see a Hope Town friend or two!!). Standalone, yes, but you will want to (and should!) read them all.
