A delightful surprise

I started the series with this book. I am going to have to backtrack and catch up on the others. Glory and Kace…My heart. Their story is tragic and magical. What the two of them have to work through to make it to the other side is inspiring. I loved seeing the path they took. This book was a delightful surprise.

Bad Man on Campus: a Second Chance College Romance (Big Men on Campus Book 3) by Stephanie Queen

This is the first book I’ve read by Queen. Bad Man on Campus is a great read. Queen is an author I will be coming back to read more of.

Kace is a big man on campus and has been for three years. When he goes home for his dad’s wedding he runs into a blast from the past. The one who got away. The quote I chose for Kace is: “No babe . We can handle this. You can get help. We’ll talk to Majik. She goes to AA and maybe she can sponsor you.”

Glory has had her life thrown upside down for three long years. All to help a friend out because she was drunk. Running into Kace helps heal her or so she’s hoping. Glory can’t stop drinking. The quote I chose for Glory is: “AA is too public . People will know. It’ll cause more problems for you . . . and your parents. I’ll handle this. I’ll stop drinking the nips. I’m not driving anymore. It’ll be okay. I’ll call my therapist. Or maybe I’ll talk to Dooley. He’s been a good friend. Thank you for introducing me, for asking him to take care of me.”

Highly recommended for Contemporary Romance lovers.

This is more of a second chance to redemption story. Three years ago a tragedy occurred which separated Glory Rose and Kace. He went off to university and Glory got stuck in their hometown. His dad’s second marriage brought him back to town. Gaining courage, she meets with him and , to her utter delight, he’s happy to see her. She lets him know that she’ll be attending his university and he’s pleased that they’ll be together. Life isn’t exactly what they expected and university is fraught with difficulties. Life isn’t easy with one thing happening after another. Are they meant to be together or are the hurdles too high to overcome?

The story was interesting and well written. The characters were real and relatable. I was frustrated with Glory Rose. After everything that had happened, she was still making stupid decisions. I was so happy when she finally started to see the light. I enjoyed the story even if there was a little too much drama.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Ben saw Jazzy he had an instant attraction but with her crass and stroppy attitude, can he try and break the outer shell of her heart and help her recover.

Ben is an all round good guy and being a jock and hot is always in the limelight, but when he sees Jazzy he instantly has an attraction that won’t go away, the only problem is that she is a bitter, twist girl but can he try and uncover why she is so broken and try to heal her.

Jazzy has a past which she would rather forget but this has imprinted on her attitude and would rather push the boundaries rather than keep within them, but when she meets Ben he is the only person who has tried to help her but can she let him in or be allowed to love again.

I loved the story and the characters which are developed within this book. The story is hard hitting and delves into subjects which are not comfortable to read, but Stephanie writes with such passion and delicate that you at times feel sorry for Jazzy but with her attitude you could hit her aswell.

The character of Ben is lovely and although these two characters are different but still complement each other brilliantly. I can wait to read the next book in this series.

4 out of 5

Kace Jennings is headed to the NHL, is president at the BMOC house, and is on his way to graduating with a degree. It has been three years since he was home, but his father’s wedding brought him back to his hometown and the place his life changed forever. He knows he should go see her but he can’t bring himself to do it. When she shows up, will he have the courage to tell her how much he has missed her?

Glory Rose’s life stopped 3 years ago. The accident changed everything. She is back on track and is trying to move forward. Glory heard that Kace was going to be in town. Glory decides to take this opportunity to…she isn’t sure. Is she going to tell him off? Can she tell him that she misses him? She has to let him know that she will be on campus with him starting in the fall. Glory owes him that much.

Kace looks forward to having Glory on campus away with him, away from the judgments of everyone that knows what happened. When Glory makes a bad choice, Kace covers for her. Kace’s world starts shifting as he appears as the bad guy. Is this what Glory felt? How do they move forward? Can they do it together?

Stephanie Queen brings this story of redemption and second chances to life with every word. You feel Kace’s struggle with his emotions and choices. You forgive Glory for choices outside of her control. You hear the screams and the metal crunching during the last crash. Stephanie draws you into their world quickly and easily. The characters are relatable and real. Stephanie is definitely on my list for future reads!!

Bad Man on Campus, the third book in the Big Men on Campus series by Stephanie Queen is a second chance romance you don’t want to miss. Kace and Glory were high school sweethearts before a tragic event made them lose touch. Years later, they meet back up in college and let the emotional rollercoaster begin. Trust me you will feel every emotion and your heart will break for these two. I’m not a huge new adult/college romance reader, but this story left an impression on me.

Confronting and real
This is a second chance romance novel and the third in a series. It does not run along the same lines as other second chance novels I have read. It has a raw edge to it as Glory faces the demons of her past and Kace tries to stand by her side. The author has interwoven a very confronting issue throughout the story extremely well and I was vested from start to finish. A brilliant addition to the series.

Bad Man On Campus is the 3rd book in the Big Men On Campus series by Stephanie Queen. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone. I had not read the previous two books in this series and did not feel as if I was missing any vital information to help me m enjoy this book. I have read this author’s work before and thoroughly enjoyed the Playing Series so was looking forward to reading more of her work. This book was a great choice as I really enjoyed it. I do like reading a book set in college/university and this is a great example of that.
This is a great second chance romance that got my emotions going. Glory has been through a very hard few years having lost her best friend in a car crash and she’s still struggling. She’s now about to start college where her ex boyfriend, Kace, the brother of her best friend also attends.
As much as my heart broke so much for Glory many times, she also exasperated me. I wanted to shake some sense into her and make her realise the damage she was doing to herself and how this was affecting Kace. I adored Kace and loved how he would do anything for Glory and was willing to risk all to keep her safe.
This is a great book and I’d definitely recommend it to other readers.

Glory Rose has become a different person over the last three years. A traumatic accident brought an end to the happy girl that was in love with her high school sweetheart…and has changed her into a person that is damaged and uses alcohol as a coping mechanism. As she is getting ready to finally head off to SPU, she gets wind that Kace is back in town. She is determined to see him before they are both at the same school. Even through their shared traumatic past…there is still a spark…and they are going to see where it leads.

Once on campus, though…things start off bad and just get worse. As they try to see who they are after three years, there are situations that are testing if they will be able to actually make it work. While Glory Rose needs to get herself in order, she is also trying to make sure that Kace doesn’t throw his own future away for her. The cards are definitely stacked against them…so are they strong enough to stay solid?

This book is so much more than a second-chance sports romance. It is about two people who have to face the past and heal in order to move forward. While Glory Rose tended to stand in her own way more than once…she seemed to mature and start growing by the end of the book. I understand Kace’s need to protect her…and that led to his own kind of healing. Overall, I enjoyed the story.

This is the 3rd book in the Bad Man on Campus Series. This is ok to read as a standalone alone which is what I have done.I found this story really sad and heartbreaking at times. But a good story through all the pain.
The author does a good job with the characters.
Glory has had a really hard time in her life. With an incident that happened in her past it sent her on a downward spiral, and when the love of her life left that was when she turned to drink to cope.

3 years later she is on the road to recovery from the trauma and also her alcoholism. Things are better and when Kace arrives back in her life this could be their second chance.

Kace  left to deal with his own problems and his need for distance from everyone he knows to move forward. Now after a successful time as a hockey champion he has returned to get back the woman he loves. However time has changed and Kace’s reputation as player means that the couple will have a lot of hills to overcome if they are going to be together. Hills and obstacles put in their way from the past and the present.
Are Kace  and Glory strong enough this time around to get through them and revive their love. Or will too much have happened and things not been forgive will that eventually tear them apart.
