    1. ARC received for honest opinion, thanks to the author, the publishers and NetgalleyReviews will be posted soon!: coyoteuglyswaggerbookblog.worwordpress/stats/insights/

    2. Unfortunately, this was a DNF at 50%. (I skimmed the last half.) The hero (view spoiler)[ had a sexual (not intercourse) relationship with the heroine's TWIN sister before she died. AND he was messing with the sister all the while having a thing for the heroine. The heroine doesn't find this out until like 75% into the book. (hide spoiler)] I'm sorry that is just nasty and SO not something I enjoy reading about in my romance books. Moving on["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br" [...]

    3. 4 "under my skin" starsIt's been awhile since I've read book 1 and 2 of the Blackhawk Boys, and I really liked them, so I'm kinda eager to see what will happen in this installment!and like I stated before, I love NA angst, hell i love angst in general, it gives me the thrill of anticipation and sometimes it riles me up too but it makes me vivid and tempered and alived that's not only a good thing, that's actually the point! *wink*Alexandra/Alex DeLuca had a crush on her best friend Sebastian Cro [...]

    4. We break, and we heal. Our scars can make us more beautiful than we were before.Going Under feels like a runaway train, a sinking ship. You can feel the intensity growing with every turn of the page. You know you're headed somewhere you REALLY do not want to go. You know the impact is going to kill you, and yet you hang on and hold out hope because you simply can not look away, because the ride feels too damn good. I read this story with knots in my stomach. I had such a visceral reaction to eve [...]

    5. What a beautiful story!Forbidden love, regret, secrets, sorrow.Going Under has it all. The secrets!!! They are killing me. So many things are luring in the dark. With each chapter more secrets are unearthed. Hidden diary pages, ominously point towards an event that could be the death blow to a relationship that could have been the forever kind. Sigh!I'm mostly sitting on the edge of my seat, or more accurately, huddling under my blanket with a tissue box in hand. The tension is the kind that dri [...]

    6. Voici encore une romance qui se déroule dans le milieu du sport mais dans un genre un peu différent que ceux que l’on peut voir. C’est écrit par Lexi Ryan, auteure que l’on connaît bien et qui a un vrai talent pour le new adult, pour ces jeunes couples au passé compliqué et lourd, la marque de fabrique du genre. C’est aussi le cas ici et le football qui unit tous les héros masculins est assez peu évoqué.Les personnages sont connus surtout si le lecteur a déjà lu le premier et [...]

    7. So here’s what happened. I read book two of the series, Rushing in, last year for a blog tour. If you read the review you will know that I FUCKING LOVED IT. And I meant to go back to book one, Spinning Out, and then life happened or something and out of nowhere, book three, Going Under is happening and I’m like whaaaaaaaaaaat but wait, life again and book FOUR, Falling Hard is coming up for promo and #anxiety And then the best thing happened I met Lexi Ryan in person a couple of weeks ago at [...]

    8. 4.5 StarsThis is one of the stories I've been waiting for. From the moment Sebastian Crowe entered the picture in Spinning Out I had hope that he would one day get his own book. And he finally has. Of all the guys in the series, he is the one I've been most attached to from the beginning. In Going Under, we finally get his whole story and while his background was a little disappointing to me, the love he has for Alex more than makes up for it. I'm a sucker for a guy that can make a woman feel be [...]

    9. "Touching you is never difficult. The hard part is letting go."Going Under è il terzo capitolo della serie The Blackhawk Boys e, devo dire, che più Lexi Ryan ci racconta i personaggi di questa squadra di football, più mi fa innamorare dei sui libri e del suo stile.Amo i romanzi sulle secondi occasioni e questo, che racconta la seconda possibilità tra Alexandra e Sebastian è un crescendo di emozioni pagina dopo pagina.La trama, lo stile, la tensione fra i due ti catturano nella loro rete fin [...]

    10. 4.5 stars Sebastian Crowe has regrets. Had he met Alexandra DeLuca today, he would pursue her no questions asked. But he met her five years ago when he was a different person, when he didn’t deserve anyone as good as she. Even though he has changed his choices, he still knows she isn’t for him, no matter how much he may be attracted to her.Alexandra is back after two years away. She knows she doesn’t want to be a mechanic forever, so moving home in order to go to college seems the best cou [...]

    11. Going Under is book three in The Blackhawk Boys series. This time is Sebastian's turn to tell his story. Since book two (Rushing In) I was very drawn to him. He seemed like the ultimate bad boy and his story was one I wanted to hear.Just when I thought it was going to be a light-hearted story, I was surprised to find that it was a bit dark. Sebastian and Alexandra's lives have been plagued by death, drugs and unrequited love. Reading this book was intense and a bit exasperating. The shadows of t [...]

    12. Ooh. So much angst! Angst that I wasn't expecting, It was like watching a train wreck, I knew what was coming but I couldn't do a thing about it, the train was going to derail no matter what. I was just hoping there would be survivors, namely Alex and Sebastian. Well written in dual POV with some pretty intense characters. A 'sort of' friends to lovers story with Alex and Sebastian having so much baggage and history between them, I'm not sure how strong their original friendship was. My heart ac [...]

    13. 4.5/5 Maintenant j'ai vachement envie de lire les deux premiers tomes!! Très belle écriture, très jolie histoire, des personnages très attachants, que ce soit les personnages principaux ou les secondairesMon avis : leslecturesdesab.wordpress

    14. 3.75/5.I liked this book… then I didn’t like it at all. I wanted to take note of all the things wrong with it but couldn’t stop reading it at the same time. It confused me good so I had to read on and find the solution, and it confused me bad so I had to stop and try figure it out myself, try to make sense of what was happening. I think that’s why I couldn’t rate thing any higher. I wanted to love this book, and I’ll probably read the other books- I am interested in Keegan & Oliv [...]

    15. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review I was introduced and started falling in love with both Lexi Ryan's writing and the Blackhawk boys at the same time. With each one of these hot jocks she has introduced me to, I have fallen farther and harder. Lexi has the perfect mixture of want, forbidden, and suspense to keep my heart hanging in the balance waiting for the next steamy scene or mystery to unfold. She kept me riveted by giving the reader not just one or two point of views but th [...]

    16. **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs**Going Under is a new adult contemporary romance (with a college football player, main character- so maybe sports romance) and is the third book in the Blackhawk Boys series by Lexi Ryan. Going Under can be read as a standalone novel. I have not read the first two books in the series, but I am dying to now considering how much I adored this book. I completely fell in love with Going Under. I have been craving a true new adult col [...]

    17. 4 StarsThis is the first book of Lexi Ryan's I have read in what feels like the longest time, I didn't realise there were two books before this one so I hadn't read them before starting this book! In saying that I don't think that takes away from this story! There are things I didn’t know since I hadn’t read the previous books but I will be going back to remedy that!Alexandra hasn't had things easy the last few years, she has dealt with so much grief while also battling with her own self wor [...]

    18. This is one story that will keep you feeling invested in Sebastian and Alexandra and the past that keeps them from the love they have for each other. Alex is living with scars on about one third of her body that she got while running into a burning building trying to rescue her twin sister. Sebastian is living with scars within his soul for feeling that Alex’s sister, Martina died because of him. No matter if they are internal or external scars are a part of who you are and it is something you [...]

    19. ***This and other reviews can be found at imasweetandsassybookwhore ****ARC*Well I won’t say what it was but I sure as hell didn’t expect that to have happened! Going Under had me throwing my kindle a time or ten and even when I thought about not finishing it I just couldn’t stop reading. I haven’t read the previous books in the series, even though I have had them on my kindle for a while but this is a standalone with some possible tiny spoilers for the other books but not enough to make [...]

    20. Another amazing and deep book by This amazing author I can't wait to see what the series will bring next!

    21. Well written. Just couldn't get past the immaturity of the main characters. Too much angst for me!! Great read if you like that kind of trope.

    22. 4.5 starsFor Sebastian Crowe, Alexandra DeLuca was the girl that got away--the one he could never have, shouldn't want, and does not think he could ever deserve. She is his best friend's little sister and they are tied by history. But now she is back home and bringing back old wants, regret, and guilt. Alex has suffered serious loss and life changes. And Sebastian knows all about it. She has had a crush on him for years, but he has always kept her at arm's length. He has secrets and guilt that e [...]

    23. rpmbt-blog/rpmbt/review-goGoing Under is the third book in The Blackhawk Boys Series but can be read as a stand-alone. It is Sebastian’s story and it is a whirlwind. I was wrecked and didn’t know what to expect with all the twists and turns that Lexi Ryan took us on in this book!Sebastian has always been a mystery to me, so when I saw this book was his, I was thrilled, finally we were going to get to know more about the mystery guy who seemed to keep to himself in this series, and boy did we [...]

    24. REVIEW: 4.5 STARS"Touching you is never difficult. The hard part is letting go."I love Lexi's stories!!! She has proven time and time again to me that she can write a solid story about an amazing couple that defies the odds and comes to learn what true love really means!! I have been pining over Sebastian since we met him, and his brooding ways are not to be missed. He has a very guilty conscience, and he needs to work through that. Because Alex also has one, and she needs him just as much as he [...]

    25. 4 STARSOh boy oh boy! Where Do I begin?Going Under was AWESOME!!!! This book had so much in it, don’t get me wrong… THAT’S A GOOD THING.Alexandra is this girl who is in love with her brother’s best friend Sebastian, she is a sweetheart and believes in love and forgiveness. She just wants to be happy, but she has one weakness and that is Sebastian. Sebastian carries so many things inside, he’s sweet, hardheaded, and overall he’s strong. He wants to be happy but believes that he doesn [...]

    26. This was more than a 4 star but not quite on the level of the 5 stars I gave the first two books in this series. That isn't to say that I didn't adore this book! This series is all I have ever read from Lexi Ryan but home girl can write emotional stories with deep characters that have many layers! My only complaint with this book is that we didn't get a lot of the other characters from the other books and not a lot of football. The sport or the teammates. The group of friends show up a lot and a [...]
