    This was amazing LOVED IT When I read The Guy on the Right earlier this year, I fell in love That book was all kinds of epic and I was instantly intrigued with Troy, who was Theo s roommate Then we found out the connection between Troy and Dante and I knew I had to have his book I loved TGotR so much, I didn t know if this would be quite as good for me Well it was In fact, I think it was a tiny bit better Because along with being hilarious and a blast to read, it gave me all the feels And Troy Jenner Troy is Kate s best hero to date I was obsessed with this book Troy Jenner told a lie one night to a pretty girl, and his life was forever changed Troy and Clarissa meet at a bar and really hit it off Clarissa is a new teacher, and she believes Troy is one too A few months later, she finds out she s pregnant And then she finds Troy And then she finds out Troy is not a teacher No, he s not a teacher at all He s an 18 year old high school student Clarissa is devastated and than a little upset, which is understandable This puts her entire career, her entire life in jeopardy She shuts Troy out and never wants to see him again Fast forward 5 6 years later Even though Troy has never met his son, he s always done the best he can for him He s been on the sidelines, watching out for them and helping when Clarissa will let him But now that he has his life together, he s a senior in college and headed to the NFL, he feels like he can approach Things are about to get hella complicated for all parties involved He s so smart, my son My son He wasn t a mistake I refuse to believe it I will be whatever he needs For my son It s time to be a father My absolute favorite thing about this book was Troy and Dante s relationship Troy really stepped up for him, and not only became a constant present in his life, but also his best friend It was truly the sweetest, most heartwarming thing to witness There were so many scenes between these two that made me laugh hysterically I adored them together I have to admit, it took a little while for me to warm to Clarissa But I do understand why she made the choices she did Not only was the familial aspect of this story fantastic, but the romance was great as well It was steamy, sweet, and messy at times, but it was still beautiful Kate Stewart does the best job of writing love story s that are a bit of a mess, but still perfectly imperfect I know I ve said it once, but it bears repeating Troy Jenner is the best hero Kate has ever written That s hard for me to say because I love her Jack and Reid, but Troy truly takes the cake for me I m lucky you re mine He turns to me, his eyes filling with emotion as I tell him my truth You ve surprised me, Troy In the best way I loved that The Guy on the Left wasn t a carbon copy of TGotR They are totally different books in a lot of ways, but both of them are equally wonderful If you re looking for a heartwarming story that has a little angst, a lot of laughs, and a ton of heart, pick this book up It s definitely one of my top top favorites of the year You and Dante, you redefined my dreams My everything is yours

    Kate Stewart writes the best heroes I didn t think she was able to top Theo Houseman from The Guy On The Right but she did Troy motherfucking Jenner Lord my ovaries were working overtime while reading TGOTL Troy knocked Theo off the number 1 spot and claimed it Phew what a man indeed.After being introduced to Troy in The Guy On The Right I just knew and hoped I would get his story cause there was so much potential and I was intrigued as hell by his behavior and his interaction with his female neighbor Clarissa and her son Dante Yes, Dante is Troy s kid but how he was conceived and was transpired between Clarissa and Troy are a whole different matter A lie that caused a friction between the two of them but Troy wants to make amends To prove himself worthy Not only to his son and Clarissa but also to himself He succeeds Big time.The Guy On The Left is an emotional, honest and angsty slow burn redemption story I appreciate the author for making Troy and Clarissa take their time getting together, cause a lot of unresolved issues and fears had to be resolved before anything serious could happen between them They had to get to know one another from scratch and that takes time Along with Troy slowly getting to know and spend time with his son His and Clarissa s friendship turned into a beautiful courtship where trust and their son were the primary focus Yes, it s Troy s redemption story but it takes two to tango and Clarissa is not without blame They both made mistakes and she too had to prove herself I fell hard for Troy, Dante and Clarissa Also her bestie Parker was terrific A wonderful ensemble of characters TGOTL is different from book 1 in the Underdog series and that s what makes it even special to me It s witty, angsty and so romantic The perfect mix and with Kate Stewart s flawless writing and humor to boot it s a winner She delivers every time I want to be MRS Jenner 5 Pretty Fucking Mess Stars

    Can I give this book 10.000 stars I thought The Guy on the Right was a great book, but I was NOT prepared for Troy s book at all.It was a perfect combination of sweet, funny, heartbreaking, endearing, steamy, and real.Clarissa is a high school teacher that hit it off with a crazy good looking guy in a bar and had a one night stand Three months later and she s pregnant and trying to figure out how she s going to break the news to him Troy told her he was a teacher as well, but when she goes to his work place she finds out not only that he isn t a teacher, but an 18 year old student Devasted about the lie and scared not only for the child but that this can actually be portrayed as a crime, she tells him to stay away from her and the kid and that they can never be seen together, ever.Troy is devasted, yes, he is a sweet talker that takes what he can get, but he grew up with a single mom, and abandoning his son is not ok with him at all But, he s young and really doesn t know what to do So he keeps his distance but is always lurking and stalking Clarissa through social media, trying to see his son s first steps, watching them in the park and sending checks that she never uses Clarissa notices him and doesn t do anything She never invites him in, but never properly sends him away.That s until Troy is in his senior year of college, it s five years later and he is finally in a position to man up He rents a room in the house next to Clarissa and their son Dante If you read The Guy on the Right you know that he starts living in Theo s house And that s just another great thing about this book, how it perfectly intertwines with TGOTR and gives you all the explanations the first book didn t We all thought we would never like Troy when seeing him through Theo s eyes, but it happens that we just didn t have any context at all, and seeing how both stories complement each other is just another example of Kate Stewart s perfect writing Now, it s time for Troy to try to make up for lying and not being present But, he s not the only one who s guilty, and in trying to construct a family he in Clarissa understand that loving someone is complicated and it takes so much effort, but also, it s worth it They embark on a rollercoaster slow burn romance where there s so much to overcome, but the payoff is beautiful Especially, because it just seems so real But truly, TGOTL won my heart in showcasing Troy s relationship with his son Dante Troy s commitment to being a good parent, the way he just noticed and guided his son was so beautiful and had me teary eyed half the time It was just an amazing thing to read, and Troy was not only redeemed he probably became Kate Stewart s best hero to date.I will keep this book in my heart for a long time.It s everything that I want to find in a contemporary romance, full of depth, compassion, drama, and a heartfelt resolution..Thank you to Kate Stewart and WordSmith publicity for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Oh how I loved this book so much Kate Stewart has done it again Five stars for The Guy on the Left We meet Troy in The Guy on the Right He s this play boy that doesn t appear to take life very seriously He s a bit full of himself and careless with his friends feelings Teases of info about Troy start to unfold but then we get the bombshell tie to the little boy neighbor and his momwell I couldn t wait for The Guy on the Left From the very beginning of this book my perception of Troy was turned upside down Oh my is he not at all what you see from the outside He s young and yes he makes foolish mistakes but he tries so desperately to pull up from behind His perseverance and level of commitment, even from afar is absolutely beautiful I routed for this unexpected underdog from the very first page Clarissa and Dante are equally incredible When Troy and Clarissa are together they make the difficult easier just by giving into love and embracing their mistakes and moving forward There s Kate s awesome brand of humor throughout this story as well Even though the subject is heavy at times, Kate brings in levity at just the right moments The side characters and appearances of old favorites makes The Guy on the Left even better This book is all heart just like it s author It s always a privilege and an honor to read for you

    5 stars for the awesomeness that is Troy JennerOh wow, I loved this book A second chance book in way than one as a single father fights for his family, and the one that got away Told with emotion, humour, angst and a whole lot of heart, this book had me absolutely captivated and I freaking loved it The Guy on the Right was the first book in this series, and it was a funny and romantic read that I loved It also dropped a massive bomb when it was revealed that Theo s roommate, Troy star football player and all round party boy was a father Dun dun duuuuuuun It was a fabulous twist, and I have been SO excited to get my hands on this book which, in my opinion, was even better than the first Troy and Clarissa met in a bar and shared one life changing night together Life changing in ways than one, because not only was their connection and the sex truly unforgettable, but it also resulted in an unexpected pregnancy When Clarissa goes to share the news with Troy, she s dreaming of all that they could be together as a family, only to learn that he lied to her when they met and he s an 18 year old high school student Clarissa has just gotten her first teaching job, which puts her in a seriously difficult position so, heartbroken and terrified for her future, she pushes Troy away with a demand to stay out of her life for good Six years later, and Troy is now a College senior with plans for a career in the NFL He s never actually met his son, but he has watched him in secret, and has contributed whenever he can, staying as close as he can without interfering When he discovers that Clarissa has moved, and he sees an ad for a room to rent right next door, it seems like fate, which is how he ends up boarding with Theo, and how he comes to finally meet the little boy he has loved from afar for so long I love, love, love this setup And I very quickly learned that the image I had of Troy from what we see of him in the first book is so incredibly wrong He s so much than I expected, and I absolutely adored him He s so sweet and so desperate to be a part of little Dante s life, and the relationship that they forge as Dante gets to know Troy as his friendly neighbour is absolutely beautiful The smile on my son s face and the awe in his eyes when he runs into the living room makes it worth it He s worth every sacrifice I could ever make. His relationship with Clarissa is a lot complicated Neither of them have been able to forget their night together, and though they obviously have a lot of baggage to wade through, there is still an attraction between them and Troy makes it clear that he wants Clarissa in his life just as much as he wants Dante But she s still so very hurt, and the have some pretty significant issues to deal with Troy, I can t go down this road with you Why not He whispers hoarsely You could forgive me We could start over We could have something real this time The truth becomes crystal clear as I drink her in She s the only woman I want.And if I want any chance with her, I have a lot to prove. It s a long and angsty road, and OMG, my heart hurt watching these two figure out their feelings There are ups and downs, tears and anger, and they both show their vulnerability as they work through their past and what they want from their future, and the feels are brutally intense I love you It s that simple and that complicated It s not always easy to read, and for me that was mostly because of Clarissa She was left shattered by Troy s deception, which I completely understand, and she s wary of introducing Troy into Dante s life, which I also understand, but she handled the situation so badly I could rant on and on about how cruel she was to shut Troy out, and her continued bad decisions once he pushes himself back into her life, but I came to realise that it s all a part of the journey, and this is Clarissa s story as much as it is Troy s, and she has a lot of learning and growing up to do I think I dealt with it so well because Troy was just such a superstar through the whole thing He doesn t hold a grudge, his goal is his son, and on winning the trust of the woman he loves, and he fights hard for both of them He has his own emotional journey to go through and my feels were all over the place right alongside both of them I stare at the man who spent months capturing my son s heart and wholly taking mine in the process. I loved the way this book played out It s well paced and is far from predictable you never know what s coming for these two The romance builds beautifully, and it s sweet and sexy with fantastic chemistry and intensity The family themes are also beautifully written, and little Dante is a complete scene stealer Funny, quirky and super smart, his relationship with Troy will melt you It s a beautifully heartfelt read, and well worth all of the angst and drama because seeing these two find their HEA was truly very special And Troy pretty much owned me through all of it You and Dante, you redefined my dreams My everything is yours The book fits nicely alongside The Guy on the Right, with the stories playing out right alongside each other This book has a completely different feel though, with so much emotion and angst than the first, and while you can read this one as a standalone, beware spoilers for the first book And through it all, we get to see the third roommate of the bunch, Lance, with hints of his story, and I m so excited for his book.I loved this one Yeah, it s messy and complicated, and it hurt, but there are some absolutely gorgeous moments throughout, and than a few laughs, and it s such a beautiful story.5 stars for all the feels An Advanced Review Copy was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
