Grief
Spinning Out (The Blackhawk Boys) - Lexi Ryan

Arrow is reeling from all the changes going on in his life.  He is on house arrest.  He is in love with someone he has to see everyday.  He cannot tell her how he feels.  And it is killing him.

 

Mia has a lot go on as well.  She took a job from her father's enemy.  She is trying to get through school.  She is also dealing with the man who makes her hot sleeping next door.

 

These characters are really hot!  This story makes me want to cry and scream all at the same time.  I was pleased with the banter, heat and pace.  I cannot wait to read more in The Blackhawk Boys series.  I give this book 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Spinning Out (The Blackhawk Boys #1) by Lexi Ryan
Spinning Out (The Blackhawk Boys) - Lexi Ryan

 Lexi Ryan’s Spinning Out is a touching and amazing beginning to The Blackhawk Boys Series.  Arrow Woodison had the perfect life until a tragedy caused his life to spin out of control.  He is confined to his father’s house under house arrest trying to get his life back in order.  His only light is unattainable, Mia Mendez, his best friend, Brogan Barrett’s, girlfriend and little sister Katie’s live-in nanny.  I LOVED Spinning Out.  This story had me crying on multiple pages.  Some of the things that happen in this novel are heartbreaking and tragic.  This contemporary sport romance is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.  It takes place in Blackhawk Valley.

 

Lexi Ryan’s character development is detailed and multilayered.  I love Arrow.  He was a rising football star, expected to go high in the draft until an accident causes him to spiral doing drugs and throwing his life away.  He is grief-stricken and tormented.  He is in the spotlight, and everyone has their opinions of him.  Mia is sweet and caring.  She met Arrow before Brogan and always had a spot in her heart for him.  She is loyal.  She wants to clear her brother Nic’s name.  Every character has his or her purpose.  There is so much going on with lots of substance.  All the characters have their strengths and weaknesses.  Everyone is very human.

 

The plot was amazing and perfectly executed.  I love how the chapters went back and forth in the time line to unravel the story.  Spinning Out is extremely believable.  I like how the different characters all interrelated.  The story had humor, drama, and mystery.  I love the texts.  Arrow’s elegy had me in tears. Spinning Out shows how people can influence one another, especially people we think care about us or are in a position of power.  Spinning Out is a thought-provoking and stirring start The Blackhawk Boys Series.  This is the first book I read by Lexi Ryan.  It will not be the last.  I cannot wait for Christopher's story in book two, Rushing In and Sebastian's story in book three, Going Under.

Spinning Gold
Spinning Gold - Elpie (Horribibble) Spinning Gold - Elpie (Horribibble) An engaging little fic with Peter cast in the Rumpelstiltskin role and Stiles as omega shut in a tower with a heap of straw to spin into gold. Gerard Argent is perfectly cast as the the evil greedy king.

In which there is actually thorn spinning...
Spinning Thorns - Anna Sheehan

I am not going to forget that I wasn't crazy about this story's beginning.

I am however going to say that it does improve in a spectacular way: the sort that leaves you wondering what is going to happen next, when you finally have to go to sleep.

 

Yes, I had a hard time with the beginning. I actually went back and start re-reading it once I noticed that a certain word _kit _ kept being repeated by the male character. Over and over.

I think I counted it being used thirty times in just a few pages. And I kept wondering, why not call her "sister" or "my sister"?

And the answer finally came to me towards the end due to the character's personality. So, there, a thing that I wasn't "getting" actually had a purpose that I was missing.

 

The other thing that I wasn't crazy about had to do with the changing pov's. Well, not the pov's per se, but the way they were told: For the guy, we have first person, for Princess Will we have third person. I don't know if I was being picky, but the thing got annoying... until I stopped paying attention to it and I started gobbling up pages as fast as I could.

Because I honestly cannot pin down the page in which I got hooked by this story.

Once the characters started to grow on me, I probably was a goner...

 

Will is not your typical fairy tale princess. She has felt inadequate her whole life by comparison with her older sister. The perfect one. The one with the classical beauty, and the petit measurements. Her relationship with her mother _ the former Sleeping Beauty _ isn't perfect, but she has her father to lean on.

She knows she's not perfect. She longs for someone she can't have, but she doesn't let that define her.

She's rational and resourceful, and she knows that in the end she will do whatever her kingdom needs: even if it means abandoning her studies on magic.

You may not like her in the beginning, but I bet that you will come to respect her in the end.

 

I don't want to reveal too much of the plot, or too much on the characters, because that's half the fun, so I'll just say that Will and the one that will not be named ;) are wonderful characters, and that I loved reading their story.
