Editorial Reviews

“No time is wasted in Williams’s fun, fast-paced page-turner. The love interest is introduced on the first page, and things only get hotter from there until the thoroughly satisfying conclusion.” — The BookLife Prize

“Going down easy like scrambled eggs, pancakes, syrup, bacon and orange juice on a Sunday morning, William’s literary flow is effortless, like a real pro. For all readers who love a great, old-fashioned girl meets boy story, Sidelined is your perfect match.” — Omar Tyree, New York Times Bestseller Author

“Sidelined: The Draft by Bianca Williams is a page-turning, stress-filled romance, with tries, fouls, and of course goals, or in this case, perhaps agendas would be more to the point. Ms. Williams shows poise and talent for creating atmosphere throughout her plot. This is the first book in the series and, given the ending, it’s easy to understand why.” — Reviewed By K.J. Simmill for Readers’ Favorite
