Summary

What happens when an almost 30-year-old virgin agrees to let her Scottish footballer best friend give her some lessons in seduction?

Lots of banter, awkwardness, jealousy, and heat.

Midfielder Maclay "Mac" Logan is a loud-mouthed, tattooed ginger content with focusing on football. But when an adorable, freckled seamstress comes barreling into his life, he finds Netflix-And-Bickering with her to be his new favorite pastime.

Freya Cook is used to being the invisible woman with a needle and thread, offering cheeky punchlines as she helps dress London's finest. She's plus-sized in body and spirit, and other than her friendship with Mac, talking to the opposite sex is one skill she never mastered.

However, after one innocent game of Never Have I Ever, Mac offers to play Love Coach for Freya.

What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off.

Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don't fall in love with your best friend.

Blindsided is a full length (97,000 words) contemporary rom-com standalone with a sports theme.

Lovely story

This is a really nice audiobook, although it takes a while to get used to the performers accents. The pace is good (although rushes a little in the final chapters) but I don’t regret listening to this!

Pure perfection! Ohhh my!!

Oh, lordy. This sweet, sassy, sexy, emotional, all-encompassing friends to lovers romance is everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. It ticks off so many of my boxes ... it's borderline ridiculous. A swoon-worthy Scotsman - although he is truly a bit daft at times that I wanted to smack some sense into him - deliciously voiced by the talented Will M. Watt (if I had to name my favorite male narrator - it would be him, hands down) and one cheeky, feisty, smart-mouthed heroine, whose skills with the opposite sex are ...uhm, expandable and much too innocent for her age, all perfectly brought to life by the amazing Charlotte Cole. The banter and bickering between those two is out of this world. A match made in heaven. I smiled, I laughed out loud, I cried, I swooned, I screamed and then I laughed some more. It's utter brilliance and definitely one of my favorite friends to lovers romances out there. I need more of Amy Daws' characters' kind of banter, more hunky Scots- and Englishmen and more Charlotte Cole and Will M. Watt goodness. Again, match made in heaven. MORE please!!

Good read, may contain spoilers

I found this book was good at the start then it seemed to slow down a couple of chapters in, I think it was the female accent it seemed like she was dragging her words out to speaking posh (im British 😁), I was like mmm should i continue, but i thought no give it a shot and im glad i did i got back into it and also liked the characters sometimes when mac spoke i missed what he said so i had to go back and listen again, other then that i really liked the characters,(SPOILER) the only thing i will say about the story is it spent most of the book them getting to the point he was helping her out and feelings involved, then splitting to then have 1 chapter of them getting back together and an epologe of them 2 years later (I've noticed this with alot of books lately not just this one and not by this author ) it didn't spoil the book i just feel i spent a lot of time getting to know the characters to have a fast ending

One of the best productions I've ever heard

Thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. My first time listening to Will and his performance was absolutely wonderful. Both narrators were fantastic. This production really brought to life Amy daws characters. Draws you in and you get pulled into it. I couldn't stop for long before tuning in again. Brought such a happy smile to my face listening to these two.

Another great listen!

I don't think you will ever be disappointed with an audiobook from Amy Daws. The narration is spot on, the story is amazing, and you cannot help but be pulled into the story. This is a spin-off novel from the Harris Brothers series but is still fine to be read/listened to as a standalone.

This series just keeps getting better and better! Blindsided is a slow burn, friends to lovers story but Mac and Freya are just everything! Amy's words are truly brought to life through the audio.

These are stories that have to be devoured!

Funny, steamy, and dramatic

Best friends Mac and Freya were more than happy to “Netflix and bicker;” that is until they, along with their friends, play an innocent game of Never Have I Ever and Mac finds out that his gorgeous plus-sized best friend is still a virgin and has a hard time talking to members of the opposite sex. Mac becomes Freya’s love coach and after the first few lessons, Freya realizes that she’s falling for Mac…

Mac and Freya’s bickering and bantering was so much fun to listen to and made them (and their relationship) seem more realistic. Freya’s socially awkwardness and insecurities make her so relatable. This book is steamy, funny, and dramatic with a little bit of angst.

Narrators Will Watt and Charlotte Cole did an amazing job. They really brought the characters to life with their performance.

Blindsided is a best friends-to-lovers contemporary sports romance written in dual first-person POV and narrated duet style. It’s a standalone that ends with a HEA. No cliffhanger, no cheating.

I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

My Thoughts on Blindsided

Oh the audio goodness. That's what Blindsided was. Not only because the storyline was romantic perfection, although it was definitely that. But also because of the audio itself.

These two narrators really brought these characters to life. Freya was so funny and just impossible to not love. She's the type of character I wish I could be friends with and not only because of the great accent. Mac was a great mix of bad boy and boy next door. They were so sweet together. And yet the steam was off the charts too. I love a good best friend's to lovers story, but when it's written by Amy Daws sign me up. I know I'm going to get a story that's well written, with great characters, fun cameos from beloved characters, and my favorite kind of ending.

Charlotte Cole and Will Watt are by far two of my absolute favorite narrators and this book is a prime example of why.

Mac and Freya!

Mac is a sweet, sexy and successful football player. He plays the game not only for himself but for those that he loves the most and is determined not to let them down which means not getting distracted by anything and that includes women. Freya is a curvy seamstress who appears to be outgoing and confident but inside she has the same insecurities we all do that when it comes to other people we don’t always measure up.

Mac and Freya are the type of friends that just enjoy the time they spend together where it doesn’t matter what they are doing the banter between them is both hilarious and honest. When a simple game has Freya revealing her lack of experience when it comes to men Mac offers to become her tutor and teach her about all things physical and once that line is crossed their friendship is about to become very complicated.

Fun and flirty there is no denying that they are perfect for each other. She isn’t interested in him for his skills on the field and he sees her beauty even when she doesn’t see it herself. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and thought both narrators were excellent with the Scottish and English inflections.
