Publisher's Summary

What happens when an almost 30-year-old virgin agrees to let her Scottish footballer best friend give her some lessons in seduction? 

Lots of banter, awkwardness, jealousy, and heat. 

Midfielder Maclay "Mac" Logan is a loud-mouthed, tattooed ginger content with focusing on football. But when an adorable, freckled seamstress comes barreling into his life, he finds Netflix-And-Bickering with her to be his new favorite pastime. 

Freya Cook is used to being the invisible woman with a needle and thread, offering cheeky punchlines as she helps dress London's finest. She's plus-sized in body and spirit, and other than her friendship with Mac, talking to the opposite sex is one skill she never mastered. 

However, after one innocent game of Never Have I Ever, Mac offers to play Love Coach for Freya. 

What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off. 

Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don't fall in love with your best friend.

Blindsided is a full length (97,000 words) contemporary rom-com standalone with a sports theme.

AMAZING

This was an adorable friends to lovers romance. I loved listening to this audiobook with its amazing narration (including the accents), duet narration (meaning the male narrator spoke for the male characters and vice versa with the female narrator), and an amazing story overall. In this book, Freya (the female protagonist) is a fun, loving crazy person who is obsessed with animals (especially horses and cats), and occasionally starts talking to inanimate objects when she has something to say (I'm sure we've all done that at some point or another). Mac (the male protagonist) is a buff Scottish football player who isn't afraid to love (unless he is so daft he can't see what's in front of him) and laugh and be himself, even when it may be a bit different to everyone else. These two are definitely a match made well, one that I'm sure will leave lots of readers wishing for a romance like it. This isn't the first book I've listened to/read by Amy Daws and won't be the last with the amazing stories she brings out. An amazing book I would definitely recommend if you think you will like it.

New author, loved it.

what a listen. I loved the accent which piqued my interest to begin with and ...not to be a spoiler alert person....I laughed loudly through some of the scenes. Amy daws writes some belly shaking antidotes. it was truly refreshing. simple storyline but refreshing. Harris brothers sound interesting..might have a go

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫ LOVED IT!!!!

Man I devoured this book! I loved the characters and their relationship. It was so great to read about a female lead who had flaws. Freya had a lot of self esteem issues and to be honest, they are the same thoughts that I think many of us have everyday. I loved how she came out of her shell and with the help of her friends and her man she learned to love herself. First I fell in love with Mac, then with their friendship, then I fell in love with Freya and finally I fell head over heels in love with their relationship. The banter between them was off the charts. I laughed so much during this book. Without giving any spoilers, I just have to say this book had the BEST scene ever in it that was seriously funny but extremely thought provoking. I am not surprised about how much I loved this book though because I expect nothing less from this Author. The narration, as always with all Amy's books was PERFECT. I loved all the accents and I love when a voice fits a characters personality and Will Watt and Charlotte Cole fit like a glove.

Mac-n-Cookie!

This book deserves a million stars. I loved it from the beginning to the end. This was my first Scottish/Cornish (And Amy Daws) Romance novel and if they are all like this – I’m hooked. This book was the friends-to-lovers story done right. It starts off with two completely platonic friends that literally Netflix and Chill. Mac is a tattooed, alpha-male, football player and Cookie (Mac’s nickname for Freya) is a seamstress with insecurity about her weight/size. Freya decides to confide in her best friend about how awkward she is around guys and can’t date because of it – he becomes her love coach to help her out. Here is what I LOVE LOVE LOVE about this book. 1. Not only are both characters loveable alone, they are loveable together 2. Their friendship is solid. It isn’t like one of those friendships where the female character secretly pines away for her cute guy friend. Nope. It all happens unexpectedly and organically a. He pretends to be her brother in order to set her up on a date with a guy she has a crush on. Yes! She has a crush outside of the main character. I loved that it didn’t center around their love for each other only. Instead it shows how they really are best friends and then later in the book, more happens 3. Its paced properly. Not too much too soon. Then when it happens, it doesn’t end right after that. It takes us through to an epilogue! Yaay! 4. They have really supportive friends with positive messages as opposed to the friend telling them to settle or move on. 5. The scenarios feel real to me. If they have a disagreement, they don’t just run back into each other’s arms like any other romance novel – it’s a real time off involved. 6. The narrators were AMAZING! Which was perfect with the author’s writing style. I felt like I was watching a movie instead of listening to audible I really could go on about their bickering, the adopt-a-pet date, and much more – but I want you to actually read this review and get the book! I’ve already recommended it to a few people and plan to read it again one day. I can’t wait to hear about Mac’s sister. I feel like that is coming next.

Best Narrators EVER!!!!

WOW... WOW... WOW... Will Watt and Charlotte Cole were just simply amazing. Best dual narration I have ever heard. I have always wanted Freya to have her own book and Amy Daws blew my mind. I have to say I laughed so hard and I have to admit I cried buckets too. Mac was just simply delicious and I loved him, but I wanted to smack some sense into him as well. This book shows two friends who can't see what is right in front of them. Plus more Harris Clan too, who can say no to hot footballers!!! Highly recommend this book and I loved this narration so much!!!

Another Great Book from Amy Daws!

Friends to more is my favorite trope and with Blindsided, Amy Daws has created an interesting story with engaging characters that come alive through the duet narration. I am picky about audiobooks and narrators, but I always love Amy's books on audio. From the beginning it is easy to see the strong bond between Mac and Freya and that remaining platonic best friends is not in their future. After having met them in a previous book I really liked getting to know them better. They were fun and funny, and definitely not one dimensional. I appreciated that they had careers and interests outside of just being with each other. The evolution of their relationship was sweet and hit all the right notes. The author infused the story with enough humor and heart to make it an enjoyable and entertaining read! Mac and Freya's story is a spin-off from the Harris Brothers series, but can be read as a standalone.

cringeworthy

I tried so hard but couldn't get it done. I think I was expecting more chemistry between them.

Great story and narration!

I've never gone wrong with the Harris brothers, and same is true of the two spin-off stories. I particularly loved this one as Freya is so relatable as a character. And who doesn't want a big Scottish footballer who runs around free-balling under a kilt? I was surprised by the amount of emotions that were brought on by this one. I'm used to the humor from this series, but was not expecting the tears to fall as well. Another job well done for Charlotte and Will with the narration on the audiobook as well. I am hoping that we will see more of these two, as well as the rest of the Harris family as it seemed like Tilly and Santino had a history that they need to share with us. I can't wait to see if that happens.

One of the best productions I've ever heard

Thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. My first time listening to Will and his performance was absolutely wonderful. Both narrators were fantastic. This production really brought to life Amy daws characters. Draws you in and you get pulled into it. I couldn't stop for long before tuning in again. Brought such a happy smile to my face listening to these two.

OMG even better in Audible

When I read this book I absolutely loved it. It was one of my favourites in this series but listening to it in audible made it so much more. The Narrators really brought these brilliant characters to life. Charlotte And will did such an amazing job with this one, the accents, the emotions so beautifully real. I could listen to this again and again, and to be honest I probably will. Well done Amy Daws for an amazing book and picking an amazing narrator team.

Pure perfection! Ohhh my!!

Oh, lordy. This sweet, sassy, sexy, emotional, all-encompassing friends to lovers romance is everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. It ticks off so many of my boxes ... it's borderline ridiculous. A swoon-worthy Scotsman - although he is truly a bit daft at times that I wanted to smack some sense into him - deliciously voiced by the talented Will M. Watt (if I had to name my favorite male narrator - it would be him, hands down) and one cheeky, feisty, smart-mouthed heroine, whose skills with the opposite sex are ...uhm, expandable and much too innocent for her age, all perfectly brought to life by the amazing Charlotte Cole. The banter and bickering between those two is out of this world. A match made in heaven. I smiled, I laughed out loud, I cried, I swooned, I screamed and then I laughed some more. It's utter brilliance and definitely one of my favorite friends to lovers romances out there. I need more of Amy Daws' characters' kind of banter, more hunky Scots- and Englishmen and more Charlotte Cole and Will M. Watt goodness. Again, match made in heaven. MORE please!!

This friends to lovers novel with its likable, relatable characters, hilarious banter, emotional moments and steamy scenes had me hooked from beginning to end, I enjoyed this story as Freya and Mac had me laughing and highly amused. I loved seeing the progression of their relationship and their story gave me all the feels. This was an enjoyable tale and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of friends to lovers romance. This duet narration was absolute perfection. I loved Will and Charlotte's voices. They did an excellent job with the characters, with the accents, with the emotions. They had great pace and timing and really brought the story to life. It was an absolute pleasure listening to them narrate this novel.

Amazing!

Blindsided by Amy Daws is contemporary romantic comedy that I listened to on audio narrated by Will Watt and Charlotte Cole. This book is a Harris Brothers series spin off that can be read as a standalone. This is the first book of Amy’s that I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. She took me on an emotional roller coaster. You can’t help but fall in love with Mac and Freya. Will and Charlotte did an amazing job on the narration! I absolutely loved the dual narration and their accents. They really brought this story to life! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves sports romance, rom-coms, or friends to lover’s romance.

Just perfect!

What can I say about this book! it's perfect, just like coming home after awhile. I love revisiting some old characters from the first books. Mac and Freya are soo wonderful together, the perfect couple, and I loved every minute of their story. This book made me laugh out loud, chuckle, giggle and I couldn't contain myself. As for the narration, Will Watt and Charlotte Cole perfect as always, I hadn't realised how much I've missed their narration until I started listening to them agai, they are phenomenal ,wonderful, just a perfect team and I really hope to listen to them again soon.

Phenomenal!

I have never been more excited to listen to a book that I already read in ebook form before and I was NOT disappointed. I absolutely adored this book and Will Watt and Charlotte Cole did what I knew they would do--bring it to life! Mac and Freya are one of my very favorite couples from Amy Daws. They completely stole my heart. The narration was as awesome as the story. I've loved Will Watt's voice for a while now, but he really brings something special with that Scottish accent. I loved every bit from beginning to end!
