The Guy on the Left (The Underdogs Book 2) by Kate Stewart

The Guy on the Left (The Underdogs Book 2)

It started with a lie. A night of blurred lines between a teacher and a student. I wasn’t her student, yet it was the single most defining night of my life. I’ve never been the man she thinks I am. Most people have no idea about the life I’ve lived or the words that ring true when it comes to me—still waters run deep. But you’d be hard-pressed to find a coed on the TGU campus who knows otherwise…because I’ve never corrected them. Th...

Reviews The Guy on the Left (The Underdogs Book 2)

  • Christy
    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 hi...

    It pillaged my HEART, it devoured my SOUL, it has permeated in all my SENSES. It's NOT just a story, It's designed specially to give hope to common people like US, that Underdogs DO get their place in the sun. The Meek SHALL inherit the Love one day!Oh my Achey Breaky Heart, be swooned so fast and so often at Troy Jenner, it's dislodged from my chest and is lying panting between the pages!!! “There’s no story if you give up.” I h...

    *5 Exceptional stars*When it comes to writing multi-dimensioned characters and stories with emotional depth, there are only a handful of authors that are on my list. Colleen Hoover, Penny Reid, JT Geissinger, Kate Stewart and Alessandra Torre, to mention a few.After The Guy on the Right, I couldn't imagine how Stewart would redeem Troy or that his story could surpass Theo's. But, wow. WOW.I was blown away, crying one minute yet dissolving into hy...

    I literally devoured this book. It was so good! :)And I need a book about Dante in the near future! Please, Kate Stewart. Just hear me out, ok? :D

    3 starshmm not sure how or what to feel after reading from the previous book, we found out that Troy is actually the dad of Clarissa’s son (their neighbour), and i was kinda hesitant to read this because of how Troy was portrayed in Theo's book but i'm so glad i read this though.Troy is your typical popular, man ho jock but... is he really? yeah sometimes. but his relationship with his son, Dante was what won me over. but his relationsh...

    *****FIVE +++++++ STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}I’ll never let her be alone again in the way she described to me. Instead of useless words of assuring her of it, I’ll prove that promise. And that’s going to take time. The more I become integrated into their lives, the more I feel like I can do anything, everything, for them both.The ”Underdog” series is by far, one of Kate Stewart’s best. Each installment is as amazing ...
  • Jessica (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads)
    To beperfectly frank, Troy's book has been one of my most highly anticipated reads of this entire year. I have been literally dying for the story of the Texas Grand football superstar and his single mom neighbor since I was first introduced to him in The Guy on the Right. I was DESPERATE for the story behind this guy, this womanizing athlete with a reputation that preceded him but who definitely seemed misunderstood by the time I'd finished Theo'...

    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...
  • Ana Laura
    Same as always: while she has to deprive herself of other relationships to raise her child he certainly had no problem moving on with other women. I don't know how long these authors will persist in these ridiculous double standards. Women today may well have time to raise their children and enjoy male company. WE ARE NO MORE IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY FOR GOD'S LOVE! And "Zero" might well have waited less time to take approach with his son, but h...

    4.5 STARS Wanting this woman is torture. Loving this woman is fucking humiliating. I feel like I've been waiting forever for this book. But nothing could have prepared me for the impact Troy's story would have on me. When I first met him as a secondary character in The Guy on the Right, he was the ultimate hottie. A jock, a womanizer, a guy that had the world handed to him and took full advantage of it. Well ha! The joke is on me. Because while...

    5 Stars!(ARC provided by Wordsmith Publicity) Troy Jenner is a college senior at Texas Grand University. He plays football for the Texas Grand Rangers, and is one of their star players. He has a reputation as a playboy athlete, and is the golden boy of TGU. School and football have been his life for years.

  • lazybookconqueror
    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 h...

    5 stars for the awesomeness that is Troy JennerOh wow, I loved this book! A second-chance book in more 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...
  • Sophie
    4,25 stars “in general” and 5 stars for Troy (and Dante). What I really like is that Kate chose to begin this series of interconnected standalones with Theo’s story. I got to meet Troy through Theo’s eyes and he appeared to be your typical douche jock! So now that I have been inside Troy’s head and had his story from his perspective, I am acutely aware that appearances are deceptive! I think this could be the recurring theme of this ...
  • preoccupiedbybooks
    I loved The Guy on the Right so was looking forward to this sequel, but I didn't really like this.I liked Troy, he was immature but then again he was 18 at the start of the book and only 24 for the rest. He tried hard to be a good dad and was pretty likeable. I didn't have an issue with his one night stands because him and Clarissa were not together. I liked Parker, Clarissa's best friend, she was a lot of fun.I liked Dante, he was a cute and fun...
  • The Book Bee
    REVIEW: 4 STARS"Love requires a little bit of idiocy and a hell of a lot of bravery." First and foremost - OMGosh. All. Of. The. Smiles. Troy's swagger (hot), Clarissa's anger (understandable but frustrating), his smirk (weak knees) and her glare (scary)....this one is full of piss and vinegar and everything that made me giggle and sigh. In the end, I walked away with a love for yet another book of Stewart's and all it does is make me want more.....

    5 'I'll give you everything' Stars!ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.Troy Jenner. Troy, Troy, Troy. *sigh* He is more than enough reason to start reading this novel right this second because you’ll fall completely in love with this man and his story. This series is absolutely amazing and its heroes even more. Kate Stewart keeps making me fall in love with her amazing characters and you’ll understand why if you read a...
  • Ambriehl Khalil
    [5/5 Stars] Oh man. Wow. I’m kinda speechless to be honest. Can I give this book all the stars? Just take them all—take every single one. This is definitely up there with my favourite 2019 reads, that’s for sure.To be honest, I didn’t think it was possible to top the previous book since I adored that one so much, but holy cow, move over Theo. Troy has just moved himself in on my favourites list. He. Is. Everything. Literally. Everything. ...

    Okay reader friends or the 4 people that might stroll across these words LOL. TROY IS MINE!!!! I have seen lots of DIBS and "he's mine" blah blah blah. But NO it's just not true because he's MINE and he's loyal so he can't be yours. LOL Who knew stalking could be such a turn on? OMG Seriously I have read and loved every Kate Stewart book she has released SINCE THE BEGINNING (see another reason HE'S MINE *snickers*) and while I fall in love with a...

    “Troy,” I shake my head, still trapped beneath him. “We’re a train wreck.”“So what? Our story is messy, unconventional. We can be messy together, that makes us perfect.” The Guy on the Left was one of my most anticipated books of the year. I wanted this story so damn bad I could hardly stand it. After meeting Troy in The Guy on the Right, you can't help but WANT to know him. He's the playboy, the life of the party, the one everybody...
  • DEMI
    THIS BOOK WAS ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!!Earlier this year I read “the Guy on the Right”, and absolutely fell in love with it. In that book we saw Troy as the stereotypical popular college football star who hooks up with a different girl every day of the week. HOWEVER, in his book we saw the REAL Troy and let me tell you, I think I may have to say that I loved this even more then “the Guy on the Right”. (This book was definitely more emotion...

    5 “Loved It” StarsI loved it!! The Guy on the Left is the second in the Underdog Series, and it’s the Troy Jenner’s story. The prologue sets the start and it’s a doozie. I wasn’t sure I would be able to continue as it kinda crossed a line for me but I gave it a chance and boy was I happy.This story is nice and angsty but it’s also emotional and sweet. Troy Jenner is the ladies man whose life changed when he was a senior in High Scho...

    #70-20195 Legit Stars!I savoured every single page of this book like a delicious tiramisu! The hurt, the sweetness, the fight, the longing, the resentment, the forgiveness. Every single bit were so good. A happy ending to my 2019 challenge. See you in the next decade!
  • Kristi
    5++++ Pretty Woman Stars!!!!!!I couldn’t have loved this book anymore! I have waited for Troy and Clarissas story since TGOTR. I wanted to know what the dynamic was between them and Dante. Let me tell was WORTH THE WAIT!!!!We begin with a prologue that HOOKS you! If you haven’t read the previous books and read this one that prologue will get you! This was a page turner and I would have finished in a day had I not had to sleep for wor...

    5/5 Stars Just take all the stars because this was EVERYTHING This was my most anticipated read of the entire year and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT I don't even know where to begin. This was raw, real and heart achingly beautiful. I felt all the emotions with this book and I loved every minute of it and never wanted it to end. This was more than I could've ever hoped for, for Troy, Clarissa and Dante's storyI was instantly intrigued by Troy after readin...
