Book Review: Six Ways From Sunday (Southern Scrimmage #1) by Mercy Celeste
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There is just something about Mercy Celeste’s writing that pulls me in and completely captivates me. Six Ways From Sunday was a fairly short read, but intense and emotional throughout and it ended beautifully. I loved both characters, Bo and Dylan, and their connection is soul-deep. I don’t want to say too much about the story since it’s a pretty quick read and you’ll discover most of the main story arc in good time, but between a loveable football badass with the turf skills to make a seasoned pro athlete cry and a solid, stoic Force Recon Marine who sacrifices nearly everything for his country, these high school best friends are a memorable couple and I couldn’t stop thinking about what they went through even over a week later. This is also the start of one of my new favorite contemporary male/male series, so if you’re new to Ms. Celeste’s writing, this would be a good one to start with regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of football! Bo & Dylan will captivate and romance you into a book coma!
If you already know you like Ms. Celeste’s stories and haven’t yet tried Beyond Complicated, give it a go… or at least check out the blurb and some reviews (that story is not for everyone!) It’s much longer, addresses serious issues, and is one of the most aptly named books I’ve ever read.
