Sidelined was an AMAZING read. I was hooked after reading the first page. The author kept my attention throughout the entire book. I felt like I knew the characters & every chapter was filled with excitement. Bryn was my favorite character. I loved her feistiness & her sense of style. I was cheering from the "Sideline" for her to take a chance on love with Shane Smith, hoping that the outcome would not be typical. I felt her every emotion in each chapter. I was totally floored by the end ...more

Single mother, Bryn Charles can't believe her luck when she signs Shane Smith, Nighthawk player and NFL superstar, to organise a kick as event. She's never been much for jocks, but there is no denying that Shane has a body to die for, and Jen, Bryn's friend, has hooked designer Oris Odili and intends to ensure he knows exactly how to show off all of his best features. Shane seems to find himself drawn towards Bryn, his advances becoming increasingly difficult to ignore. But dating an athlete is ...more

Is mixing business with pleasure ever a good thing? What do you do when you just can’t resist temptation and you cross that line? What do you do when you cross the line with someone you know isn’t good for you long before you cross it? Do you risk it all for a forbidden attraction? Those are questions that Bryn Charles is trying to answer in Bianca Williams’ debut novel Sidelined: The Draft.

This was such a frustrating read for me, but as soon as I find another book by Bianca Williams I will mor

Addictive! I wonder whats true and whats not. Can't wait for the 2nd book. Took it to Cabo for a beach vacay and finished it in 2 days. Mainly because I could relate to the main character, she's all of us though the situations are crazy Going behind the scenes of celebrity/football world was cool too. Hope that 2 and 3 get reased together so I can just binge over a weekend to see if they ever get it right.

As someone who loves completely, this book has everything I live for: unforgettable romance; magnetic attraction; corporate maneuvers; high-end shopping; epic vacations and mind-blowing sex. I could not look away.

Bianca William’s amazing book comes at a time when dating is challenging and complicated. The story is an epic example of how even the most skilled players find themselves “sidelined.”

The fictional characters now feel like friends. I can’t wait to read what happens next. You are missing

What a captivating read... a true page turner!!! This book made me feel like I was looking at a period of time in my own life because this book is extremely relatable. The author created characters that are classy, sassy and fun. I really enjoyed reading this book. And to top it off, I purchased a t-shirt from the author's website that's classy, sassy and fun like the characters in the book.
