Review: The Same Side by C.M. Doporto

SameSideThe Same Side: Book 2
University Park Series
by CM Doporto

The engagement’s off and with Collin behind her, Lexi has decided that the temptations of Raven Davenport are too strong to be ignored.

It doesn’t take long for Lexi and Raven to find themselves wrapped in each other’s affection, but not without the challenges that life poses.

But can she withstand the world he’s created or will the forces that are against them rip them apart?

Love, faith, betrayal, and heartache ripple through their lives as they fight to be on the same side.

(Not a standalone story. Book 2 in the University Park Series).


★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!

A few weeks after her engagement to Collin was off, Lexi found herself trapped by The Raven and she wasn’t doing anything to get away from it – or him. Raven had opened up new horizons for her, made her realized all the things she’d been missing, helped her mark off the things in her bucket list. With Raven, Lexi became alive.

Raven proved to be a real deal-breaker for her. He had a messy past and complicated life, but he tried his best to steer clear and change. Lexi was helping him become a better person. But as always, there are struggles and obstacles that prevented them from having a fulfilled and happy ending.

Cheers to another cliffhanger ending from C.M. Doporto. I know a lot of people aren’t really into this kind of endings, where you need to wait for the next book in order to get the whole story. But me, I’m all for it. I love the feeling of excitement cliffhangers bring. The author knows how to keep the fire burning in The Same Side. Doporto can make me wait for weeks or months, and I’d still get giddy and bouncy when the next book releases.

Oh I am definitely caught in the Raven’s Trap and I’m loving it.
