Alabama’s golden boy has everything he’s ever wanted.
He’s smashed the school record for most passing yards, touchdown passes and completed passes during his college career. He is the winner of the Maxwell Award as the Nation’s best all-around player, and is slated to enter the NFL draft. But even with all his success, he was unable to hold onto the one thing that was most important to him-Laney Summers.
Laney and Kam have long since gone their separate ways, but one Friday morning sports broadcasting class and an unforeseen threat to Kam’s brightly shining future has these two back on a very familiar path. A path full of love and lust and unresolved feelings. A path where life-altering decisions have to be made, and questions need to be answered – like what’s more important your heart or your career?
At the end of ONE SOUTHERN NIGHT, Laney and Kam are about to head off to college together and are very much in love. Flash forward almost four years later and we learn that they broke up not too long after they started college. Their relationship fell apart once Kam’s future really took off and Laney was left feeling second best. The only time she had 100% of him was in bed and that wasn’t good enough for her. Once again, Laney stood up for herself because she knew she was worth it and deserved more than what she was getting from Kam. But I wouldn’t say that Kam was really at fault here either. Making it to the NFL had been his dream since he was a child, and it’s a dream he was determined to fulfill. Sadly, losing Laney came from trying to turn that dream into a reality.
ONE NORTHERN MORNING is another novella, so again it’s a very quick read. In fact, that’s my only issue with this book; it’s too short. I think it would have been even better if certain events were fleshed out and their emotions were really delved in to. It’s told in dual POVs and comes with a HEA. Will we hear more from Laney and Kam? Maybe. I wouldn’t mind seeing what their future holds.
