Who knew there was so much more to Lance than meets the eye. As a supporting character in The Guy on the Right, I certainly didn’t. Don’t worry, if you haven’t read TGotR yet, (you really should though, cos it’s amazing), you can still read this one with no difficulty. Although this is a novella, currently part of the Team Player 2 anthology, it’s not short on content. It’s a great enemies to lovers/forbidden romance with wonderful fully fleshed out characters and I loved it.

Initial impressions were that Harper and Lance were like oil and water. She a talented dancer, he a ball player/fighter with a bad attitude and even worse temper. When walls started to be broken down, you could see their real personalities shine through and I fell in love with both of them. I particularly loved the way Ms Stewart described Harper’s dancing and the effect *cough, cough* it had on Lance had me cracking up. Harper is wonderful. Feisty and no nonsense, I took to her straight away.

Lance’s behaviour took a little more getting used to. He’s quiet and broody, a trait which which can be ignored most of the time, unlike his jerkish behaviour and hot headedness, which took a little more time to understand. Nevertheless, understanding does come, once we get inside his head and his story unfolds.

However, a bad decision, made for the right reasons, has far reaching repercussions for this couple and their paths are suddenly not as fixed as they anticipated. The story ends on what I would call a hopeful “to be continued “ note, and I can’t wait to find out where the next part of their journey will take them.
