Review: Blindsided by Amy Daws

What happens when an almost thirty-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 adorably-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 was a cute read. Mac and Freya were sweet together and I loved watching them fall for each other. This is a friends to lovers story which is a weakness of mine. I love reading stories like this. 

Mac and Freya have been friends for a while now. Only in secret. Freya doesn't want anyone to know they are friends because she is herself and Mac is Mac. The footballer. The guy is super hot and it wouldn't make sense why he is friends with her. Only Mac wants to bring their friendship out in the open and she finally relents. 

And then things get interesting. Because Freya is a homebody and doesn't really have much experience with men. When Mac finds this out one night he is there to help her. Because if you can't trust your friends to help you who can you trust? Oh, it was fun. Freya thinks she is just super honest about what she looks like and stuff, but really she doesn't like her looks. I loved how Mac would call her out on talking down about herself. He gets her to see her for her and how amazing she really is. 

Mac is not one for relationships. He has to focus on his career and he doesn't have time for that. He has never wanted to have a relationship...until he starts more with Freya and then maybe things change. Oh, it was a fun read. I enjoyed watching these two figure everything out and bring out the best in each other.

With a heavy sigh, I drop down on the bed beside her, shaking my head and staring at the floor.

“The kiss couldn’t have been that bad.”

“It was,” she mumbles defeatedly.

“There’s no way,” I argue, glancing at her lips. “You have nice lips. Perfect for kissing.”

“It doesn’t matter,” she replies, her lower lip quivering slightly. “I am incapable of using them. I’m a wanker.”

“You’re not a wanker.”

“I’m a lip wanker.”

“How do you know he’s not the lip wanker?” I ask with a gruff reply. “Maybe you just didn’t have the right partner. Any man with a cheese hut doesn’t sound like he’s kissing a lot of burds.”

She turns a flat look at me. “I promise you, Mac. Even if I had the right partner, I would be crap.”

Now I’m getting angry. “Prove it.”
