~ ~ ~

Once, the only thing that mattered to me was football—training, playing, and earning my place on the best team at every level. I had it all, and I threw it away with a semester of drugs, alcohol, and pissing off anyone who tried to stop me. Now I’m suspended from the team, on house arrest, and forced to spend six months at home to get my shit together. The cherry on top of my fuckup sundae? Sleeping in the room next to mine is my best friend’s girl, Mia Mendez—the only woman I’ve ever loved and a reminder of everything I regret.

I’m not sure if having Mia so close will be heaven or hell. She’s off-limits—and not just because she’s working for my dad. Her heart belongs to someone else. But since the accident that killed her brother and changed everything, she walks around like a zombie, shutting out her friends and ignoring her dreams. We’re both broken, numb, and stuck in limbo.
Until I break my own rules and touch her. 
Until she saves me from my nightmares by climbing into my bed. 
Until the only thing I want more than having Mia for myself is to protect her from the truth. 
I can’t rewrite the past, but I refuse to leave her heart in the hands of fate. For this girl, I’d climb into the sky and rearrange the stars.

Spinning Out. I must admit I'm not a fan of books that jump back and forth in time because I tend to get mixed up but this was a great book and it had to be this way to explain all the background about the people in Blackhawk Valley, Indiana. What a mess Arrow has gotten himself into. Star football player at BHU but he blows it big time. He feels his life is in such a mess he hates himself and everyone around him except Mia. He has loved her since he met her but doesn't want to drag her down with him. She loves him but doesn't think they will be able to work things out because of past issues by so many people in their lives. So many misunderstandings it's hard to believe they will ever straighten it all out. Great book and Lexi never disappoints me.


Spinning out. Excellent. Kept my interest from the beginning to the end TY


New adult and college with love triangle and crime. Spinning Out was about the choices these characters made, all in the name of love. With love came fear. The story was comprised of a variety of themes: sports romance, crime, love triangle, new adult and college. With elements of friendship, regret, loss, and secrets. It was a character driven story with alternating points of view. The story was separated into parts. These parts delivered both past and present material with the timeline jumping around. Mia and Arrow were the main characters who held secrets and told lies to protect and cover the past. Mia was a nanny. Arrow a football player. Mia lived in a trailer. Arrow lived in a mansion. Mia went to a community college. Arrow went to a university. Mia’s a townie. Arron’s from the Valley. If you haven’t figured it out yet they are from different worlds. At times the pace was slow and I found myself skimming. At some points it was tiresome to read. The constant push/pull between Arrow and Mia was tiresome. I found I was more interested in discovering who committed the crime than the blooming off-limits romance. The prologue laid out most of the details beforehand leaving only a few surprises. For the most part this was a predictable story. I can usually tolerate an off-limits trope but Spinning Out had me disappointed in the main female character. She was confused and allowed her parents choices to control her choices. The secrets were too much and the grief was too heavy. She carried a heavy burden that wasn’t hers to carry. So many obstacles stood in the way of these two being together that I started to lose interest. This was the first book in The Blackhawk Boys series. Yet it could still be read as a standalone. Spinning Out was Arrow and Mia’s story. Rushing In (Chris’s story), Going Under (Sebastian’s story), Falling Hard (Keegan’s story), and In Too Deep (Mason’s story).


Three lives, two loves and one nightmare. A Review of Spinning Out: The Blackhawk Boys, Book 1 by Lexi Ryan This story surrounds a set of university football players, a girl from the wrong side of tracks and a love that keeps pulling them together regardless of how much they each hurt each other and themselves. Arrow has it all - a football career that has been his lifelong dream and the money to make his life easy. Brogan, his best friend from childhood has little money and self esteem issues. Mia is from a dirt poor, broken family with an alcoholic father and a brother that served time in prison for drugs - but she is smart and determined to make her life better. She goes to a community college, but has hopes to transfer to the university where her best friend is. When she leaves a note for her best friend, she starts getting texts from a guy that lives in the same dorm. When she finally meets Arrow, she assumes that he is the guy she has been texting with and they have an instant connection with each other. However, when Brogan sees her, she finds out that he is the one she was texting with and she ends up choosing him over Arrow, due in part to Arrow's last name. When tragedy strikes, everything changes for all three of these characters. What really happened that night? Who was at fault and how will this story end when the truth (or supposed truths) come out? This was a heartbreaking story, full of love, pain, lust and destructive behavior. You don't want to miss this story. **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**


Love&hate kinda book. I love all her book until this one. This book wasn't like her usual books. I usually can't put her book down. This one was really confusing and trying too much to introduce everyone on the upcoming books that it took away from the main characters.


Emotional rollercoaster. Best book i’ve read in a long time!


AMAZING. Great book!!! Kept me wanting to know more!


Great read!. This book tore my heart out and also made me smile. I felt each character's pain. Loved it!


Loved it!!. I really enjoyed reading this book! Probably will read the next one too. I recommend it


Not very good. The characters were too shallow although the book was long. The storyline was drawn out way too long for the simple plot.


Good read that makes the time fly. I read this book in three days! Very entertaining, a lot of drama, twist and turns, and not to mention a good amount of sexiness


Awesome read. Had me going thru every emotion possible! I was hooked from the first chapter. Could not put this down!!!


Depressing. Not only is the story so confusing but it’s one of the most depressing books I’ve read. I had to re read the first page 4 times because it was so confusing. It’s sad, more sad and then happy for the last 20 pages


Meh. For a free book, no the best, but not cringeworthy.


Spinning Out The Blackhawk Boys. Spinning Out: The Blackhawk Boys The story of the Blackhawk Boys, specifically Arrow and Mia’s story is so compelling that I couldn’t stop reading. Luckily I didn’t have to put the book down and read it from beginning to end. This story tells of a deep love that is fought against at every turn by everyone. The plot has so many twists and turns that you must pay close attention to follow them all. Lexi Ryan writes dominating stories that make you hold your breath several times while reading and delivers the story line very thoughtfully. One word of caution…there are a lot of cuss words but if you can read pass those words to the true heart of the story you will be rewarded. Patricia Greco


Not impressed. I'm sorry to say that I did not like this book very much at all. I skipped over so many pages! I've loved every other book by Lexi Ryan and couldn't wait for a new release from her. This was a disappointment and I'll probably be skipping the others in the series.

Great Story. What an amazing story. I listen to the audio and followed along in the book, though the whispersync did not work with this book but I kind of wonder if that is not amazon’s fault. I find that happens a lot. The narrators did a wonderful job. I fell in love with Arrow. He was this hot sexy carrying college man. He had a big heart though I am sure he did not feel like he did sometimes. I can not blame him from feeling selfish when it came to Mia. The heart wants what the heart wants. Mia was a sweet girl but I felt she was not only being unfair to herself but to Brogan as well by leading him along. She might of been with Brogan but Arrow had her heart. There are some pretty sad parts in this story and cried through some of it, some heartfelt parts and, some pretty steamy parts as well. My heart broke for Arrow. The guilt he carried with him. He was destroying himself over this guilt. There were so many lies and these lies are destroying so many people. Funny how the truth can set you free. I am glad I took out time to listen to this story.


Too depressing. It was ok but way too depressing for me


Amazing read. This story yanks your heart out but stick with it because all is right in the end. Such a good story!


Love!. Such a great read! Great characters and plot! I will have to reread this book in a couple months ❤️


Emotionally gripping. I couldn’t put this book down. Mia and Arrow’s story is both heart breaking and beautiful. The author does an amazing job showing their connection and each character’s emotions. It had me both smiling and crying! Definitely worth the read!


moneymaker2021. Ends well but pretty dark throughout. Would have liked a little “joy” thrown in now and then.

Crazy not lazy

Spinning Out. This book is more than confusing! It is beyond confusing! I couldn’t tell who was what. I was dumb enough to read the preface. It starts explaining a situation, then stops. I’m not wasting my time on a book that I can’t tell who the main characters are. They keep changing!


Amazing. I absolutely love this book. I love arrow and Mia. The suspense was good and better than I thought. I would totally recommend the book. Great ending overall just a great/ amazing book.

Legal Regal

I read it straight through!. I really liked this book, could barely put it down! I thought it would be weird and confusing going from present to past but the author did it really well. Great read!

Mandys granny

Spinning Out. Great book, really easy to read totally held my interest . Was unable to put down!


Spinning Out. This book to me on such an emotional roller coaster, but it was absolutely the best I have read by far.


Great story. Loved all the back story in depth you did. Page turner, hardly slept after starting to read it. Would recommend it to anyone who loves books.

spinning out. this book was extremely well written and had me on the edge of my seat the whole time i was reading. very good and interesting, a book worth buying!!


Just so sad throughout. This book pulls you in but it is a tough read. I finished it in 2 days but have felt depressed the whole time. Even after their happy ending I feel sad.


Nice and entertaining. I liked the story and the characters. It kept me interested.


A great book in a new series by one of my favorite go to authors. What a great first book in a new series, The Blackhawk Boys, from one of my top go to authors. She is one of the authors that I always one click or preorder, no questions asked. Spinning Out is a love triangle...well more than a triangle filled with angst, tragedy, mystery, a great plot, love and well developed enjoyable characters. Arrow Woodison had all the material things he could have wanted in life. He had all the benefits of being a child of a wealthy family. He also had a lot of the things that an only child, well an only child until recently, lacks. When he meets meets Mia Mendez he feels like voids have been filled and that she is a balm to his soul and fire on his skin. Mia falls in love with Brogan. He is the "easy choice" since her family has a history with Arrow's family. But does her heart know the truth of whom it really wants? Brogan loves her, but is insecure. Arrow loves her, but doesn't want to step on his best friend Brogan's toes. Until he does me care and does. Maybe not without his own justification. Does he approve of all things Brogan chooses regarding Mia. Not.Even.A.Little! One night filled with bad choices makes all of their lives spin out of control. Through it all there is love buried under grief and guilt. Can it be found through the murky lies and secrets shrouding the truth? While Mia is forced to work for Arrow's dad and stepmother as a nanny to his infant sister Arrow and Mia are forced together since Arrow is under house arrest. Will their chemistry fizzle or sizzle? Mia needs her job with the Woodison family to support herself and her drunken father. She still doesn't trust heart pumping love since her mother's abandonment. Can she open herself up to living again and not merely existing? Can she trust love after shattering loss? All of the Blackhawk Boys are endearing and hot. I am excited to read more about them in their own books. I am so excited to read the rest of the books in The Blackhawk Boys series!


Obsessed. This book was so heartbreakingly yet beautifully written. There are some books that you read and get over, then there are books like this one that stay with you forever. Read it. Thank me later


Oh my god I loved it. Lexi Ryan never disappoints.... I can tell this series is going to be good. Arrow and Mia's story was so good, the love they had was an amazing love. It was also so tragic what was going on but in the end they found love and are together.... ❤️


Grief. Arrow is reeling from all the changes going on in his life. He is on house arrest. He is in love with someone he has to see everyday. He cannot tell her how he feels. And it is killing him. Mia has a lot go on as well. She took a job from her father's enemy. She is trying to get through school. She is also dealing with the man who makes her hot sleeping next door. These characters are really hot! This story makes me want to cry and scream all at the same time. I was pleased with the banter, heat and pace. I cannot wait to read more in The Blackhawk Boys series.


Love it!!!. This was an amazing book. Made me cry. Is was dark a gloomy but The feel The book gave was so real. It goes to show how life can be so complicated but love is so strong. I definitely recommend this book!!

Spinning Out. Sorry I don’t like books that jump from past to present. So I’m not going to finish it.


So good!. Spinning out is just another great book by Lexi. But this one has me on the edge most of the time. So many twists, you have to read it to figure it all out!


Couldn’t put it down. This is the first book review I’ve felt compelled to write. This story is absolutely amazing. I love the depth of the characters and the plot. It has just the right amount of sex, love, and friendship. I will absolutely be reading the rest of the series.


Great Dinamic. I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait to read the rest of the series! The push & pull throughout the whole story had me unable to put this book down!


Love Arrow and Mia. A heartwarming and heart wrenching book from one of my favorite authors. Can't wait for the next book in the series.


Obsessed. Obsessed with this read! There really wasn’t a dull chapter. It was incredibly detailed, and I never wanted to pause.


Crazy!!!!. I loved this book and have become a fan of the BlackHawk Boys. This story had me pulling my hair because I was torn. I was hoping for someone to commit a wrong so things could be right, but it wasn't so black and white. I'm definitely gonna purchase the next installment because Chris was such a sweet guy in this book. Glad he gets his own book!!!!!


Emotionally Riveting. One of my favorite books. So many books follow the same story lines and you can tell what’s going to happen within the first few chapters, but this book had an original plot. The tragedy and love in this book keeps you involved emotionally.

3.75 stars-tragic and emotional. 3.75 stars--SPINNING OUT is the first instalment in Lexi Ryan’s contemporary, new adult THE BLACKHAWK BOY romance series focusing on a group of friends who attend Blackhawk University. This is football player Arrow Woodison , and nanny Mia Mendez’s story line. Told from dual first person points of view (Arrow and Mia), using present day and memories from the past divided into nine parts SPINNING OUT follow in the aftermath of a hit-and-run accident that killed Mia’s brother Nic, severely injuring her ex-boyfriend Brogan, and the resulting fall-out as family friends struggle to move on from the pain and grief. Months earlier Mia fell for Arrow Woodison but Arrow’s best friend Brogan swooped in and fell for our story line heroine. Infidelity, secrets, and lies lead to a New Year’s eve drunk fest wherein one young man would lose his life, while another clung to what was left of his. Fast forward to present day as our heroine struggles to move on from the past, as Arrow battles his own demons and more. When Mia is hired as housekeeper and nanny for the Woodison family, Mia is placed in the direct line of fire when the young man she has loved continues comes under house arrest and continues to push Mia out of his life. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Mia and Arrow, and the fall-out as sins of the past reveal more secrets and lies than anyone could have imagined. SPINNING OUT is a story of betrayal, of death, loss, grief and forgiveness; secrets, lies, hypocrisy and cover-up. The large ensemble cast of colorful and broken characters include Mia’s struggling father Mr. Mendez, as well as Arrow’s father Uriah Woodison and his young wife Gwen. We are introduced to Arrow’s friends and teammates: Chris, Sebastian, Keegan, Mason Dahl; Coach Wright and his daughter Trish, and Mia’s best friend Bailey. SPINNING OUT is an emotional story line about mistakes, defamation, addiction and deceit. The premise is detailed, raw and tragic ; the characters are broken and flawed; the romance is a second chance at love, forgiveness and a happily ever after.


Stretched. The entire story was okay. Not a bad read but I had to skim a lot. Mia was horrible and stupid, really. She triggered a lot of incidents and frankly, did not deserve Arrow at the end. I enjoyed reading this story SOMEWHAT. It was stretched for no reason and I wasn’t really excited to pick up where I left. But finished it nonetheless, since I hate leaving books unread.


Spinning out. Couldn’t put it down, loved the way it was written


Couldn't put it down !. If ur after a page turner that u can't put down then read this! A fantastic storyline which makes u want to keep reading goes along side a love triangle. The only thing slightly annoying was the back and forth time line but only cos u will b impatient to know what happens! Looking forward to the next book in the series!


Awesome 👏. Loved the twists and turns. Great read 👌


It’s Great book that keeps you wanting to read more.... I rarely read books, but this one caught my attention by making me wonder what happens next, the story builds up tension and suspense which makes it mroe interesting, the tension makes you want to read more and find out what happens. I strongly reccomend that people should read it and experience for themselves.

Tatiana Fitzsimons

BEST BOOK IN THE SERIES!!!. Absolutely loved Mia and Arrow’s story! There was something that felt so real and raw about the pain and love in this book. I enjoyed the whole series, but this book is definitely my favourite


Heart wrencher. Couldn’t put this book down! I immediate reread this book as soon as I finished. Love how Arrow showed his vulnerable side and Mia’s strength through tragedy. Highly recommended!


Wow. Such a good well thought out novel, definitely the best storyline I have read and love the details. Worth the time to read! Can’t wait to read the other books in the series

Checky girl

Spinning Out. Fantastic need more of there story 👍🏻👍🏻😊😊😊


Very in depth storyline. Wow, this was a heavy read, but so well written you couldn't put it down, had to know what happens next. The characters are beautiful, romantic, but without a lot of hot scenes....which would normally annoy me, but it only added to the intense storyline. Enjoyed it and look forward to the next in the series.


WOW. Great story loved it started out a bit hmm but once into it I started to fall in love with the characters. Couldn't put it down


Amazing book. This book is truly amazing, one of the best books I’ve read on here. 100% worth the read.


Spinning out. This was one of the best books I have ever read! You are such an incredible author and through this journey that is your book you've made me cry, smile like a madman and laugh. Your characters are so beautifully written that I feel this almost human like connection to them. This book has invoked a rollercoaster of emotions in me, and has honestly changed my outlook on certain things. Thank you so much for giving me the pleasure of reading such a well crafted novel. I wish you all the success for what is to come and for any future endeavours. Lots of love, An enamoured reader from England. X


Great. Was hard going to start with but a good read once you get into it.


Much more than sports romance. Loved this book- The characters feelings were so very well written. I read a lot of romance books and it was great to have something with such a different storyline to most


Fantastic. This is one of the best books I've read in a while. Very interesting and intriguing book. Loved it 👍👍👏👏for the author

Love!. Definitely recommend. I couldn't put this down. Made me laugh and cry, so well written can't wait to read the rest of the series!


A Must Read. This book is fantastic, couldn't put it down. I read it in one day, had me gripped right from the start. Can't wait for Chris's story next.


My emotions were spinning out of control!!. This book is by far one of the best I’ve read, you are one of my favourite authors. I love books that’s are from both peoples perspectives. Had my emotions all over the place in such a good way and the added twist was amazing. Can’t wait to ready the second.
