Lexi refuses to believe he doesn't care so decides to show him what he's missing. As more and more obstacles are thrown in their way, and the rela [...]
What a roller coaster!Raven and Lexi are so much better together than apart. This book was perfect from beginning to end and I'm so excited that there will be another one because I don't think I'll ever get tired of them.
I was really excited to see how Raven & Lexi's story continued. Then it became a chore to continue reading until I decided to be finished.
The Same Side (University Park Series, #2) by author C.M. Doporto is a powerful flutter worthy novel. I had an amazing insta love connection with portrayed character Raven. He is intoxicatingly magnetic. We see a new light in Raven, as his accomplishments come along with struggles, and a dark past creeping back to haunt him. What path will he go down, and does that include Lexi along his side? I really enjoyed this book immensely, and would recommend in a heartbeat. I was provided an advanced re [...]
I decided to give book 2 a try because the overall ratings are better than book 1. I feel this book was worse! This book was just ok for me. The writing and storyline came across as juvenile again. I felt the characters should be in high school not seniors in college. There were also a lot of lines that were repetitive, and became annoying to me especially "the Raven trap". Just didn't work for me.
Firstly have to get off my chest, bravo to the author for the moment in the book when she lost her virginity. Did I feel as I missed something no, it was probably one of the first books in a very long time that did not make me bang my head against my iPad about the whole best night of my life rubbish, it did not hurt and angels sang. We get to read about all their sexual exploits but I liked how their first night was like a secret between them two as characters.Ok so moving on The Same Side find [...]

I really enjoyed this book! I've read the first book, Opposing sides, and I have to say that I enjoyed the second book, The Same Side, more! I connected with Raven more in this book than in the last book, which is why I loved this book more. C.M. Doporto's books just get better and better and I seriously can't wait until the next book. Team Raven!!This book starts where the last book left off. Raven and Lexi have realized that their attraction is mutual and decide to give a relationship a try. R [...]
A few weeks after her engagement to Collin was off, Lexi found herself trapped by The Raven and she wasn't doing anything to get away from it - or him. Raven had opened up new horizons for her, made her realized all the things she'd been missing, helped her mark off the things in her bucket list. With Raven, Lexi became alive. Raven proved to be a real deal-breaker for her. He had a messy past and complicated life, but he tried his best to steer clear and change. Lexi was helping him become a be [...]
So I've been sick, and had nothing to do but lay in bed and read. (Because that is such a hardship lol) Imagine my surprise when I saw this on Kindle Unlimited. I'd been waiting to pick this one up, not because I didn't want to read it, but because my winter TBR is as along as my arm.Well, it's on KU, so I grabbed it and of course I dove right into it. I'm more than happy to say I was sucked right back into the story of Raven and Lexi. Now I'm ready for the next book and I have to make myself wa [...]
Received from the author for a honest review. The Same Side is the second book in the University Park Series and we start were we left off- Lexi & Raven revealing the attraction to each other. Lexi canceling her engagement to see where this feeling will take them. Raven still not sure if he is good enough for the naive Lexi. The big question is - will Lexi live her life and not the life her mom expects for her? Will Raven let Lexi in and give what they feel a chance? I enjoyed the story even [...]
This book was so amazing!! I am so hooked on the characters and the story line. I thought the first book was great, but this series just keeps getting better and better. The passion that the main characters have feels so real when you read it. I feel like any girl that has been in a very sheltered and controlled life can relate to the way Lexi feels. But oh if we could all have a Raven to help us figure ourselves out! CM you are an amazing author and I can not wait for December!
this book really irked me in many ways how can their relationship go from zero to living together in a matter of a few days I didn't really understand nor feel the deep connection between Lexi and Raven .
This book was an emotional roller coaster that I could not put down! I enjoyed it even more than the first book in the series and can not wait for book 3.
DNF. I just didn't care about Lexi and found the story completely unrealistic and forced
I'm enjoying this series so much. I love the caracters.
CM Doporto continues to rip my heart out with Raven and Lexi's story. I admit it I've been caught in the Raven's trap and I cannot wait until the next book.
review coming real soon!
I absolutely love this book! Is was better then book 1, Lexi and raven are suppose to be together!
Lexi finally decides to take control of her life in this book. She makes changes concerning her career and also her love life. She is going to follow Raven and trust in his love. They go through quite a bit and let me just say her parents (mainly mom) is freaking psycho. I thought Analise was the most psychotic mom in the Fallen Crest series, but this mom might be a big competitor. I mean for GOODNESS sakes, Lexi is 20 (almost 21) and they treat her like she's 14! I can't stand it. [image error] [...]
1 StarI couldn’t even finish this one. It was that bad. The h comes off as such a rube, and terribly sheltered. I didn’t connect to her or Raven.There were some pretty serious issues Raven was dealing with, and I felt like the author blew past his problems, and focused on how the h was finally getting the college experience: drinking, kissing, partying…Raven’s the result of a gang-rape! That qualifies as something that requires more than “Oh I’m sorry,” as a response, and then focu [...]
Good story lots of drama
I'm fronm south Texas so I love that it's based in Texas. Made me smile when they talked about going to South Padre Island!
3 stars again! I just was hoping for more. ------------Spoiler Below--------------Picks up right were the first left off. They kiss! whoo hoo! Then they start forming a relationship. Thing are going good.Then Lexi, her friend, and Raven all head to his moms house for dinner. His mom says something like, "he's lucky to have you" or something along that lines and he is quite on the ride home. Lexi knows something is wrong when he drops her off. A few days goes by and she hasn't heard from him. Whe [...]
The Same Side is the next book in University Park Series. Its an emotional rollercoaster with so much drama. Lexi is not so timid anymore and she is not afraid to get what she wants. It picks up right where OPPOSING SIDE left off. I just had to start this book, as soon as I finished the part one. I enjoyed this book a lot moreG OMG Raven and Lexi together finally. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE !!!!After the Engagement is officially off, Lexi is free again. But to her freedom felt little tainted as nobody s [...]
Finally some romance for Lexi! The same side picks up right where Opposing sides ends, and this book is a lot more action packed then Opposing Sides!Lexi and Raven decide to give it a go, and the chemistry between the two of them is undeniable, and I thought "Yay, everything is going to be great for them now". I was so wrong! When things start getting good between them, Raven pushes Lexi away, and Lexi is devastated.Watching Lexi try to win Raven back was cute, and she definitely grabbed his att [...]
*I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*Having really enjoyed book 1 in the series, i jumped at the chance to read The Same Side, and it definitely lived up to my expectations.In the second instalment of Lexi and Raven's story we see her grow as her own person even more, getting out from her controlling parents and visions of how life is supposed to work in exchange for just experiencing life. I love how she has the confidence to explore something with Raven, they are [...]
I really enjoyed the first one but this one fell a flat. I am giving it 2.5. I will say the book is pretty realistic in regards to college kids behavior and relationships. Lexi acts like a girl who has been controlled by parents and finally cuts loose. Raven is her first hot passionate love affair. She is unsure of herself and insecure and try's desperately to hang on even when being pushed away. She believes their love will make them stronger and they can make it because they are together. She [...]
