Summary

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Becca Steele comes a new standalone M/M college romance.

My first year at university started with a bang…literally.

I crashed into someone’s car. Even worse? It turns out that the person I blindsided is my new housemate, Liam, second-year student and football player.

It’s hate at first sight…until it isn’t.

But even if he doesn’t hate me anymore, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s straight.

At least, I thought he was.

One night, one kiss, and everything I thought I knew turns upside down.

They say actions speak louder than words.

And his actions tell me that he wants me.

Blindsided is a standalone M/M new adult college romance with roommates to lovers, enemies to lovers, and bi awakening themes. This book contains mature situations and content.

MM sports romance

This is an MM sports romance, full of steam and chemistry that will have you fanning yourself. Noah and Liam's story develops in a way that you can't stop until you know what happens next. The story overall is entertaining, but to be honest I expected more from this book, hopefully, the next one gets better. The audiobook was good, the narrators did a good performance.

Bi Awakening

I love all Becca writes but I have a soft spot for her MM books . I love Noah and Liam they start of as enemies to frenemies to lovers Noah tried to deny how Liam made him feel as Liam was heterosexual but when Liam starts to show interest Noah takes the chance. Liam can’t deal with the mixed emotions he feels when he’s with Noah and tries hard to convince himself he doesn’t feel anything at all when he goes home in conflict his Mother she makes him realise his feelings for Noah. The audiobook made the book even better and the narration by Will & James was just perfection.

Amazing mm

🎧 AUDIO REVIEW 🎧

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I loved Becca Steele books but her mm are always even better than that. This audio was such an easy listen.

At points I wanted to shout at Liam and I felt sorry for Noah.

I think Noah was my favourite out of the two if you can’t tell.

I loved having previous couple show up and get a glimpse of them now. Made the book better.

I am so excited for future stories here. I can’t wait to read more about them.

5/5⭐️
- MM romance
- Sports romance
- Forced proximity
- Roommates/Enemies to lovers

Becca is my go to MM romance author and this has possibly become my new favourite!!! Noah and Liam are just 🥵🥵🔥🔥

This book had me swooning throughout, even when they hated each other just because you could see the underlying sexual tension from the very start. I devoured this book and just could not get enough of these two. We also need to take a minute to appreciate their possessiveness of each other, both to claim but also to protect and care for the other.

I could easily read more pages on these two and not get bored! Their chemistry was insane and the spice was SPICY!!!!!

Also, those side characters!!!!!! IYKYK!!!!

If you've read any of Becca's other books, you will instantly love this!

Will & James are sooo yummy🫦

Whew! Blindsided is chock full of heat, passion, angst, longing. Noah & Liam are complete opposites…seriously Liam is straight! But he can’t help falling for Noah and his fall is full of passion & self discovery. It takes him some time to admit to himself what was so clear to everyone else—opposites attract—and Noah is his perfect match.

Excellent performances by Will and James!

Blindsided is an enemies to lovers M/M romance with the added complication that one of them is straight - or as not yet discovered there is more to life & love. They are roommates with plenty of complications and conflicts. This is a college-age romance with plenty of steam. Liam and Noah are great characters with ongoing development throughout the story. Lots of tension, lots of mistakes, and complicated bi-awakening. I really enjoyed the supportive nature of their group of friends and the general acceptance of this budding friendship and awakening. Makes a big difference! I chose this book because I am Narrator Motivated and both Will Watt and James Joseph are 1-click performers for me. I just loved their performance in DUET with all of the depth of confusion at that age and with these situations. Truly another example of audio excellence!

So good!!! I absolutely adored Liam and Noah's story. This is my second time reading a Becca Steele novel, and I have yet to be disappointed. Everything from character chemistry to development was spot on. If you enjoy more of a character driven book, then you will love this story.

I love the way these two met, and then fate intervened for their second meeting. You could feel the tension between the two, whether it be frustration or sexual. It was all their. And the feels, y'all! I felt it all, the longing, the sadness, and the love. This story is low on the angst, so if you don't like angsty stories, then go grab this one because it's perfect. I personally love some good angsty, but this story being low on that end doesn't take away from it at all.

I listened to the audiobook for this one, and let me tell you, perfection! It's narrated by James Joseph and Will Watt. I really enjoy the way they narrate and bring the story to life. They did a fabulous job once again.

Happy Listening! 💙

pretty good

it was challenging to discern between the two guys when they were talking to each other. sometimes had to really think about it. there are so many straight guys who didn't know they were bi books or there. the plot is overdone and boring. I think this will be the last of this type of plot I will read. the reality is that the 20yo today were raised in a world where considering their own sexual identity is not taboo. it's highly unlikely not knowing you're aroused by guys at the age of 20.

Utter perfection!

Absolutely amazing! No one does a M/M college sports romance like Becca Steele! The angst, the emotions, the revelations, the tensions, the push and pull—this story has everything and so much more! And the fact we get a glimpse into the lives of some previous other characters from this world in this story just made it even better! If you love a good straight guy bi-awakening enemies to lovers romance—this is it!

Due to some incidents in his past, Noah has an aversion to football and football players yet ironically finds himself rooming with nothing but players at his new school. Liam on the other hand is your typical jock and after a run in that leaves his car damaged has mutual feelings about Noah. However right from the start, these two amazing characters start off with a bang, and the push and pull just doesn’t stop and soon, those feelings soon manifest into so much more!

I absolutely loved how their story started out tremulous at best, and then seeing how their relationship quickly developed—the emotional turmoil and heat that these two characters brought was absolute perfection! Your heart can only feel for these two characters as Noah suffers silently while waiting patiently as Liam slowly learns to come to terms with his sexuality. What can I say? Becca is the queen of angsty MM romances! And the narrators? Well let’s just say James Joseph and Will Watt know how to bring the delicious heat and definitely understood the assignment. 🥵

If you love a good enemies to lovers, bi-awakening MM college sports romance then this is the one for you! I can’t wait for more stories to come in this series—Elliot I’m looking at you! ;)

Blindsided by Becca Steele / LSU Book 1

Liam and Noah's relationship starts off horrible when they crash their cars into each other in the university car park and then to make matters worse, they are now roommates and their rooms are right next to each other. As Liam spends more time around Noah he starts seeing him in a new light, which is confusing since he has never looked at another guy like that before.

Liam and Noah are electric. At first, they electrocute you with their animosity and banter but then they quickly switch to shocking hot chemistry. Both Noah and Liam have their struggles and your heart goes out to them. I loved getting the updates on some of the other favourite characters in the world of Becca Steele. I can not wait for more LSU books.

James Joseph and Will Watt are the perfect selections for Liam and Noah. They gave the characters and story life and have you feeling all the emotions that the characters are experiencing.

Get ready for... mm, sports (soccer), enemies to lovers, roommates to lovers, college, gay, bi-awakening.
