Six Ways from Sunday (Southern Scrimmage #1)Six Ways from Sunday by Mercy Celeste

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is just something about Mercy Celeste’s writing that pulls me in and completely captivates me. Six Ways From Sunday was a fairly short read, but intense and emotional throughout and it ended beautifully. I loved both characters, Bo and Dylan, and their connection is soul-deep. I don’t want to say too much about the story since it’s a pretty quick read and you’ll discover most of the main story arc in good time, but between a loveable football badass with the turf skills to make a seasoned pro athlete cry and a solid, stoic Force Recon Marine who sacrifices nearly everything for his country, these high school best friends are a memorable couple and I couldn’t stop thinking about what they went through even over a week later. This is also the start of one of my new favorite contemporary male/male series, so if you’re new to Ms. Celeste’s writing, this would be a good one to start with regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of football! Bo & Dylan will captivate and romance you into a book coma!

If you already know you like Ms. Celeste’s stories and haven’t yet tried Beyond Complicated, give it a go… or at least check out the blurb and some reviews (that story is not for everyone!) It’s much longer, addresses serious issues, and is one of the most aptly named books I’ve ever read.

    I thought this one sounded good too and I’ve got it on my wish list.

    I really loved Bo and Dylan’s story, but after reading all three stories in the series, I wish Mercy Celeste would revisit and give closure to our first couple in the series. The way she left their relationship in the third story left a bad taste in my mouth. I feel Bo Dylan deserve closure, especially Bo’s feelings towards Dylan and whether or not he truley mad the right decision in his heart.

      Hey Katherine! I completely agree. I was just checking in on this series over the holiday break, and I saw that there is a new book planned for Spring 2015 release – Sunday Schooled – that is supposed to tie up the relationship between Bo and Dylan as well as giving closure to the Bo/Levi arc. This series is sort of like a soap opera – all over the map and with lots of drama! While I like that, I’m also ready to see these guys have some peace. 😉
