Neil Josten is the newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He's short, he's fast, he's got a ton of potential - and he's the runaway son of the murderous crime lord known as The Butcher.Signing a contract with the PSU Foxes is the last thing a guy like Neil should do. The team is high profile and he doesn't need sports crews broadcasting pictures of his face around the nation. His lies will hold up only so long under this kind of scrutiny and the truth will get him killed.But Neil's not the only one with secrets on the team. One of Neil's new teammates is a friend from his old life, and Neil can't walk away from him a second time. Neil has survived the last eight years by running. Maybe he's finally found someone and something worth fighting for.… (mere)

So I'm writing this review after having read the whole series twice and I have to say, this book is my least favourite out of the trilogy. That isn't to say that I don't love it!

I know the first time I read it, I struggled with it, because I started reading this series on the tale end of reading The Raven Cycle, and still being caught up in magic and whatnot.

This book though does have it's setbacks that mark it as my least favourite.

For a starter, there is an entire scene that involves Andrew being, and allowing, something completely out of character! Like perhaps this scene was written before his character was fully fleshed out, but at the same time, it caused so much cognitive dissonance for me I almost stopped reading. But this scene wasn't just mildly out of character, I mean the Andrew you come to know over the next two books would have skinned people ALIVE for doing what was done, but in the scene in question he not only knew it was happening, but allowed it/it was kind of his idea.

Also the plot kind of goes on, without a central direction which is kind of a side effect of being self-published. If you're looking for a book lacking a solid, central plot line, then this might be a great fit for you. ( )

Re-read it, and it's still one of my favourite books of all time. So much love for these characters. ( )

I know so many people love this book. It has a really strong following on social media and the fanart caught my eye when I was looking at books similar to The Cruel Prince, which I really liked. This book, however, didn't feel satisfying to me like how most YA books usually do. It was really dark, the language was really aggressive, and I didn't feel like any of the main characters were ones I supported. The other reviews on Goodreads imply reading the other books in the series really endear the characters, but I don't think I'm even interested enough to continue.
I guess I should have guessed I would have this experience. The sports reference is right in the title and I don't like sports. ( )

The characters were a bit difficult to keep up with. And I'm positive characters changed certain actions mid-scene at least twice. But it was a good enough read. I'd likely not recommend it to a friend, but I plan on reading the rest of the series. ( )

Here's the deal, I don't consider many books to be a guilty pleasure. I might have books I don't recommend to a lot of (most) people, or books that get me through things that somehow aren't that good, but I refuse to be guilty. That said, this is the closest book to a guilty pleasure that I have right now because it's like a handful of gummy bears. I know I shouldn't. There are other books/healthy foods. But if you get in my way/bad mouth my gummies I will hurt you.

I struggled for the first 15% of this book. I couldn't keep anyone straight. Andrew and Aaron blended together. Neil and Nicky just sound too much alike, and they were all sort of terrible to each other but there was this magic hook of needing to know what happened to them all, and it was just well written. It flowed beautifully. It captured emotions and fear without meandering and even when I wanted to hit these boys I also wanted to gently collect them under my wings like a mama hen and peck out the eyes of anyone who came for them.

And then it got worse because there were more of them, and they were these little broken fox pups and things were falling apart and they were just fighting and struggling and bearing their teeth at the world. And I was in love. I read all 3 books one after the other, staying up until late into the early morning hours. And then I finished and sat there, sort of stunned, because what a fricking wild ride. And then I sat down and I read them all again, one after the other, with a tiny bit of self control, by which I mean I fell asleep with my glasses on reading them, but it was at 11 o'clock at night and not 1 or 2 a.m., so progress?

So: Do you like broken people coming together against insurmountable odds? Do you like a hidden, twisted back story that gets more twisted the more it's revealed? Make that a whole lot of twisted, rotten back stories that somehow weave themselves together beautifully? Do you love the antihero? I mean a couple of serious, unlikable antiheroes that would spit on you one minute and take a bullet for you the next, cursing you the entire way for being stupid while asking if you're okay as they bleed out in front of you sort of anti-hero? Do you like slow-burn romance? Three books worth of slow-burn romance? A slow burning confused boy loves boy romance? Yes? Oh, honey, I'm so sorry for the hours of sleep you are about to lose. Worth every single tired day during which you can't explain that you're kind of in love with a sport that's not even real and a group of young people who both need to be swatted and hugged so much that you don't even know what to do.
