This book haunts me. Levi Brody is a character that should not work. He is a cliche and way over the top. And yet...it works. This books works. Oh hell, does this book work. The character of Levi Brody is one of the top ten fascinating characters. And the story he tells is dreadful, sad, exhausting, and triumphant. Kudos to Mercy Celeste for pulling this off. You absolutely must read the other books in the series before reading this one. This is the book that lives in the background of all the other books in this series. And when Levi Brody comes out (as well as comes out with his own backstory) you get a disturbing, heartbreaking and utterly defiant hero. I have read this book three times and find myself thinking about Levi's response to the world many times.

Deanna Against Censorship's review Jul 31, 2016 · edit it was amazing bookshelves: dark-violent-stark, emotional-hit-to-the-heart, fav-authors, have-not-recovered-yet, m-m, made-me-angry, made-me-cry, mc-to-love, read-previous-ones-in-series-first, series Read from July 31 to August 01, 2016 READ PRIOR WORKS IN SERIES FIRST! Not an easy read. Levy/Levi is one of my favorite characters. Now he tells his life story in his own words. This is all him. All others are just as he perceives them. Emotional. I just finished reading this book and I feel my heart is torn to pieces. The third book has some serious editing problems. This one did not. Must read the next book.

From start to finish, this was simply brilliant writing. I absolutely loved every minute of it, even though I cringed and ached for Levi over and over again. We all knew and loved Levi/Liv, but did we really know him? Well, we do now and it was awful and wonderful. It was no surprise that he was raised poor (basically raised himself and his brother, Jude) and was violently abused, but the extent of that abuse, and the ways it shaped the man he became is all laid out for our viewing pleasure…even though there really wasn’t very much that was pleasant for our favorite quarterback princess. The title and blurb tell you all you need to know about this book. There are no new story lines and very little about Levi and Tracey as a couple, until the end. This is a succinct memoir, mainly all of it from Levi’s point of view. It is heartbreaking, it will make you sick and angry, but it leaves no doubt as to why Levi turned out the way he did. And Jude, his brother finally gets Levi’s point of view on their past, but oh man; I could not believe the way it ended. I was edge of my seat throughout most of this book, and it was difficult to put it down. I was pretty confident I knew what to expect, but Mercy Celeste surprised me and did a phenomenal job of getting inside Levi’s head and showcasing how much damage his upbringing and the abuse cost him. His selflessness and undying will to create a better, safer life for his mother and brother cost him, dearly, and I was really glad that Jude finally got to see those sacrifices. I just didn’t expect that ending. How am I supposed to wait for the next book with that hanging over my head? If you’ve read the Southern Scrimmage series then you must read this book. It is the perfect companion to the series, and lovers of this series will be in for a treat. The snippet at the end lets us know where the series is going next and is exactly what I needed to put my mind at ease, especially after reading the last chapter. So, yes, I highly recommend this book. Enjoy, but be prepared to be heart hurt.
