Publisher's Summary

The third book in the New York Times best-selling Field Party series - a Southern soap opera with football, cute boys, and pickup trucks - from USA Today best-selling author Abbi Glines.

Two years ago Riley Young fled from Lawton, Alabama. After accusing the oldest Lawton son, Rhett, of rape, everyone called her a liar, and she had no option but to leave. Now she's back, but she's not at Lawton High finishing up her senior year. She's at home raising the little girl that no one believed was Rhett's.

Rhett is off at college living the life he was afraid he'd lose with Riley's accusation, so Riley agrees to move back to Lawton so she and her parents can take care of her grandmother, who is suffering from Alzheimer's. But the town still hasn't forgotten their hate for her, and she hasn't forgotten the way they turned on her when she needed them most.

When town golden boy, Brady Higgens, finds Riley and her daughter, Bryony, stranded on the side of the road in a storm, he pulls over and gives them a ride. Not because he cares about Riley, of course, but because of the kid.

But after the simple car ride, he begins to question everything he thought he knew. Could Brady believe Riley and risk losing everything?

The 3rd installment is better than the 2nd, but...

This 3rd installment is better than the 2nd (Under the Lights), but nothing comes close to the initial novel, Until Friday Night. I guess the West - Maggie romance is just too damn hard to beat! However, we do find a deeper side of Brady in this book; i.e., he longs to be like his best friends and have the true strong connections to girls as they do.

same as the others

I like the first one then I thought the second one was kind of alike it and now the third one is the same thing. Same likable characters so that's why I finished it. But the storyline is the same and all of them the boy has to go through some terrible thing in his life he starts to rely on a girl to the point where he's completely dependent on her. Something goes wrong toward the end but is easily fixed and they end up together. Cute story but not too much variation.

third book

I was so excited to read this book because I loved the other two. It was so very different from the others but still an amazing read. I am crossing my fingers that the next book gives insight on how things worked out for them after just as the others have.

Love this series!

I listened to this one on my road trip to meet my family for our annual trip to Branson on Memorial Day weekend. While it does tie in to the other books in the series, all of these do really work well as standalones. But because I had read/listened to the other two in the series, I knew Brady. And I have to say that I was sad he was so mean to Riley. But, like the good guy that Brady is, he soon figured out that maybe what he thought he knew was wrong, and that maybe Riley had been given a raw deal by their small town, even including his own rudeness to her. This story was a tear-jerker for reasons other than just Riley's dealing with what had happened to her that led to her being a single mom, as well as taking care of her grandmother with Alzheimer's. Brady is at a point where he has always known or thought that he knew that football would be his life. And sometimes things happen during your senior year that make you question what you thought you knew. That happens to Brady. Enough that I was crying for him. I hated how hard it hit him, but for someone who had grown up with basically the perfect life and family, I guess it makes sense he'd have that hard of a time with it. Then, after having listened to the 2nd book, I had a feeling that Gunner's thoughts on Riley might not be the same as everyone assumed they would be. Brady's cousin Maggie, was the perfect friend for Riley, and I kept waiting for that to happen, and when it did, I was thrilled. Another great book in this series, and I don't know if there will be more, but there were more guys on that football team I'd like to follow. Maybe into a college age/new adult series?
