I'm Colby Hendrix.
Football Legend.
Notorious Playboy.
Sarcasm Extraordinaire.

I had everything you could ever want.
The career some would die for.
The friends that always have my back.
And an unmatched level of charm.

I never planned on settling down.
There wasn't ever a reason to.
Or at least that's what I thought,
Until she came barreling back into my life.

MY REVIEW AND OTHERS: can also be found on my blog:

Hendrix is a spin off to the Haven Grace Prep series, we all met Colby Hendrix In The Rebel and wanted his story, well here it is.. 'Hendrix' is quite possibly the most memorable, captivating, and compelling romance novel Kelsey has written to date.

Be prepared to be slayed,
Get ready to swoon.
All the feels.
Our hero won my heart before, now he owns it!

This was not a remarkable story for me, as well as the not-literally hero Colby Hendrix!

Colby and Saige were dating while they were in college. The real love of his life though was football.
When a football team wanted him to go early, he just packed up his things one night, the only thing leaving behind him was a letter for Saige, telling her that he didn’t want to be tied down with a relationship due to how hectic his schedule was going to be.
The years that followed, not even once did

I loved Colby and Brennan, but I really did not like Saige.

She kept his son from him for 5 years because he left her. Now I understand getting pissy about being dumped but keeping a daughter from someone is huge. She also tried preventing him from telling their daughter the truth because she herself didn't think he would be a good father and he had to prove himself first.

All the while she was engaged to an abusive famous piece of shit, that kept treating her like garbage, said horrible stuff a

The cover is so gorgeous but the book is shit. It was so hard to finish because there is absolutely 0 chemistry between the hero and heroine. They didnt have any connection and it seemed so forced i was like DUDE I DONT NEED A FUCKING HAPPY ENDING, JUST DONT BE TOGETHER AND FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE ELSE AND THAT WILL BE BETTER THAN A HAPPY ENDING BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM. So the story is about Colby who is a football player and clearly in love with another girl named lennon, he pays for her coll ...more

I know the author presents the hero like his is perfect and charming but I just didn’t like him. He is a weird older guy who is spending all of his time with 18 year olds. Why does no one else have a problem with this? Now he has this long lost girl that he loves, and a child? If he cared about her so much when he made it big, why didn’t he fix up her life and take care of her like he did Lennon? He was being a playboy while his daughter didn’t have a dad, because he was an ass who bailed on the ...more

And yes it gets one star for the reasons below. There was no need to read anymore as I am positive I can predict with 100% certainty what will happen.

🙄 The heroine moved on but of course to a guy who abuses her, how predictable. She couldnt just be as happy as the hero had been with his "favorite girl" and hundreds of women to hook up.

Also secret baby as a means to take the heroine down to the heros level so you cant be mad for how selfish he is.

Nothing new here, just the tr

"Instead of drowning my sorrows in a bottle of alcohol. I washed them away in women who would never compare to her."

Since the moment that i met Colby Hedrix on "The Rebel" I was a goner and I was craving his story like an addict on drugs. And when Kelsey announced that he had a surprise for us and it was Colby's story, i was over the moon with joy and anticipation.
Thank you, Kelsey, for this wonderful story!!! It was a story that neede

Almost 2 stars

Ok, so I admit that I haven't been a big fan of Colby in the previous 2 books. Seriously, what type of 26 year old hangs around teengaers? (ahem Lennon and company). Like he has no other friends his age??
So that has never sat well with me.
But moving on.

To me this book felt rushed. I get that the author wanted to write this book but it seems she lacked the time to put more time into it.

There are two characters in this story that seem they will be important but they really aren't.

5 Stars because I can’t stop smiling! This book gave me ALL THE FEELS and a few happy tears! So much emotion bled from the pages. I LOVED THIS COUPLE and their journey.

Our favorite playboy Colby is about to be taken to his knees. He let her get away once, but this time he’ll do anything for a second chance.

Saige was the only girl that has ever had his heart. They met in college and fell in love. And when he got drafted to the NFL, he let her go. He thought he needed to concentrate on his career.
A good written love story....❤️

ALL the swoony stars!!!

Imagine the swooniest hero you can think of and times it by two. That’s Colby in a nutshell...

Man, if you thought the glimpses of Colby Hendrix you got in The Rebel and The Enemy were anything to go by, you’ve seen nothing yet! The sexy and charming football player becomes that much more sexy and charming when he learns he has a daughter with his college girlfriend aka the one he let go of to pursue his football career. Mr. Unattainable And Anti-Commitment is brought down
Oh my god this book is everything anyone wishes for. Kelsey Clayton did it again. She wrote an enchanting,captivating and emotional story! This book made me feel all the feels. And you are missing so much if you haven’t read her books yet so make sure to rectify that pronto!

“You don’t even know how perfect you are.”

Oh my stars! Oh my soul! Be still my beating heart! Hendrix cast the biggest spell on me where I can’t stop smiling and swooning. I was so smitten with this love story that’s stunning, sweet, sexy, and so smartly written. Kelsey Clayton seduced me with her heartwarming writing—crafting a love story with characters that quickly carved their way into my heart—and I fell fast in love with this football romance full of feels.

Second-chance romances are my fav

This was such an enjoyable book that pulled at a few heart-strings. It was easy to relate to Saige and the added in bonus of Brenna and Maddie! I loved these characters and was sad to see it end so quickly!

'Hendrix' is a spin off from the Haven Grace Prep series by Kelsey Clayton. Told in dual perspectives, get ready to be slayed by the much awaited story of Colby!

First of all I would like to thank this author for amazing gift she has given us all the bloggers on her birthday! I have never seen such a sweet gesture from any author. Thank you so much!

This is easily Kelsey's BEST book!! It was just so flawless -- there's not a single thing I would change. Our main character is even woman's dream man (and fantasy!🔥🔥), the love between him and our heroine is so palpable that I felt like I was watching their love story unfold in real life.

This is an emotional, super sexy slow burn all about second chances and the power of love. I can't wait for you all to read this!!

Colby is a creeper. He spends way to much time with teenagers. He bailed on the heroine when he signed his contact, she could have been living in poverty for all he knew. She was definitely struggling some being a signle mom. But he had no problem, being almost 30 and supporting an 18 year old girl. I can’t respect a guy like that and don’t find anything sexy about it. These authors need to learn the difference between a being a bad ass and Just being a douche.

Holy guacamole did Kelsey Clayton hit us with the swoon with my man Colby's book. Like I didn't think it was possible to love him more and man this book tackled me to prove me wrong.

If you need a book that will put a smile on your dace while reading pick this bad boy up today. Just remember Colby is mine.

Every now and again, you come across a character that is so special you just know that nothing will ever be the same after meeting them. A character so unique, so catalytic, so memorable and important that you instantly know they will change the course of a story, a series- hell, even a genre. A character whose spark is so explosive that no matter what the scene, what the circumstance, you are drawn to them. A character who will stay with you long after you close to the final page..

Second-chance romances are one of my favorite trope's. Especally when the H is a major playboy.. and he reunites with the one that gets away and she brings him to his knees..

Kelsey you totally out did yourself with Hendrix!! I loved him in The Rebel & again in The Enemy but he stole my heart in this book... and Little Brenna.. OMG the way he was with her.. SWOON!!

This is a spin off from “Haven Grace Prep” and can be read as a stand alone but I would not suggest it. You need to know the Colby I know. Yes I freaking said it. Colby, freaking, Hendrix got his book!! I begged for it in the first book I met him, The Rebel I believe. I didn’t think he was getting it so when I opened a book, whom didn’t have a title, and saw Colby I
