Playing the Player by Amy Andr...

<i>Playing the Player</i> by Amy Andrews

I think I may have an Amy Andrews problem. And by that, I mean that I am mildly obsessed with her books. She’s become a complete auto-click for me and I’m hoovering through her back catalogue. Playing the Player is no exception to how her particular book magic works on me. This one, the most recent […]

Something More Than This by Ba...

<i>Something More Than This</i> by Barbie Bohrman

Something More Than This is both a friends-to-lovers story (which is my catnip) and a love triangle (which I am more averse to, traditionally). Katy is a sports writer with a great knowledge of the team she covers and a great best friend in her boss and mentor, Dylan. She’s in a really good groove […]

Sport of Baronets by Theresa R...

<i>Sport of Baronets</i> by Theresa Romain

The Sport of Baronets is a new novella, which kicks off a new series from Romain. It involves Bart and Hannah, whose families have been at odds since time immemorial and are both horse families. They get tangled together in some nefarious activities regarding a horse and eventually figured out that they’d rather be together […]

Irresistibly Yours by Lauren L...

<i>Irresistibly Yours</i> by Lauren Layne

Irresistibly Yours is a delightful novel from Lauren Layne, the first in her new Oxford series. Summary (from her website) is as follows: Hotshot sports editor Cole Sharpe has been freelancing for Oxford for years, so when he hears about a staff position opening up, he figures he’s got the inside track. Then his boss drops […]

Breaking a Legend by Sarah Rob...

<i>Breaking a Legend</i> by Sarah Robinson

Breaking a Legend surprised me a bit. I’m not always into MMA books, but wanted to pick this one up because… well, let’s be honest, that cover is not messing around. Like a lot of other MMA books I’ve read, our hero (Rory) is an ALPHA male who dotes on taking care of our heroine, who […]

Crazy Thing Called Love by Mol...

<i>Crazy Thing Called Love</i> by Molly O’Keefe

  I was totally swept up in this story. Trope alert: this is second-chance love at its best. Maddy and Billy were married lifetimes ago when they were both young and living in Pittsburgh. Billy was drafted into the NHL quickly into their marriage and decided that his free pass to puck bunnies was more […]

Penalty Playby Lynda Aicher

<i>Penalty Play</i>by Lynda Aicher

  Y’all, this book is wonderful. Ticks so many of my boxes: sports, sensitive dude who seems like a douche, lady who can stand on her own two feet, tribal family. Oh, an seriously hot sex. SERIOUSLY hot sex. The stars of our show are Jacqui and Henrik. Jacqui is a music student who works […]

Can’t Buy Me Love by Mol...

<i>Can’t Buy Me Love</i> by Molly O’Keefe

  Okay, so this book took me a little bit to orient myself. That’s not a bad thing, just often unexpected romance novels. I’m not used to having to sort out who the heroine is and who the hero is and in this one, it took a little bit. Of course, had I read the […]

Aim For Love by Pamela Aares

<i>Aim For Love</i> by Pamela Aares

  Aim For Love is the fifth book in the Tavonesi series and is about Sabrina and Kaz. Sabrina is a Tavonesi and made loads of appearances in the previous books in the series. When Aim for Love opens, she’s fresh off a surprise run of fame due to well-received indie film. However, the character that […]

Love on the Line by Pamela Aar...

<i>Love on the Line</i> by Pamela Aares

  Love on the Line is the fourth book in the Tavonesi series, although this one really doesn’t deal with any of the family. Instead, we meet Cara and Ryan – one a reclusive and secretive heiress and one an egotistical and talented ball player. When they meet, sparks fly but walls are up, and […]
