FAIR PLAY by Samantha Wayland
Fair Play - Samantha Wayland

Savannah is the trainer for the Moncton Ice Cats. She maintains a chilly front so the players don't hit on her. When she learns the team is up for sale, she lets Garrick LeBlanc know and they start to plan how the current owner can keep the team. Because of this they grow closer but, unfortunately, a buyer has stepped forward. Can they keep this buyer from the team? What will happen if this buyer gets the team?

 

There is a lot going on in this book. First, the romance. Second, the team and its sale. Third, problems for Savannah with a certain player. Lots of action and adventure as this story goes on as Savannah and Garrick have to find out the truth about the person who wants to buy the team. Savannah sure is a wiz with tape. It saves her many a day. I liked these characters, especially the good guys. I like how Savannah is oblivious to the support she has and discovers it has been there all along. I was glad the bad guys got theirs. Could not have happened to better couple. They deserve each other.

 

I am looking forward to the other books in this series.

Review: Hometown Hero by Liza Kendall
Hometown Hero - Liza Kendall

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

A baseball star with a reckless streak meets his match with a nurse who can’t be swayed by his charm in Hometown Hero. Mia Adams cannot catch a break. She’s working multiple jobs to try to pay off the debt her scumbag ex left in her name before skipping town. She’s a nurse, takes care of so many with compassion and kindness, and has a side business she’s trying to expand on top of it all. She doesn’t have time for Ace’s attitude, but she definitely could use the money his team is paying her to be his babysitter. Andrew “Easy Ace” Braddock works hard and plays harder. But his luck and bad boy charm can’t get him out of the latest pickle he finds himself in. Injured and laying low in Silverlake while he heals, Ace basks in being the hometown hero at first, which makes him a bit hard to like. He’s overly impressed with himself and doesn’t see past his own nose more often than not, which is frustrating, especially when you see how hard his actions have been on Mia and his brother Declan. Fortunately, around the halfway point Ace has a breakthrough. I enjoyed watching him become a better man. He screws up – a lot – but when he does it in the second half of the book it comes from a good (if misguided) place. Ace has a lot of lessons to learn in Hometown Hero but once he starts to grow his journey is one worth reading.

Attraction sparks immediately between Mia and Ace, but that doesn’t mean the romance is an easy one. Mia is at the end of her rope and I wanted her to not only find love but find someone she can depend on, can lean on in the hard times. I liked that she didn’t just fall all over herself with Ace. Part of that is due to her own issues with him stemming from her father ignoring her and focusing on Ace, the son he never had, when they were growing up. Mia takes a lot of hits in this book that just tug on your heartstrings. But watching her find support and love with Ace just warmed my heart.

Hometown Hero is the third book in the Silverlake Ranch series, but it can be read as a standalone. I loved Mia’s friendship with the Braddock siblings and I enjoyed watching the strained relationship between Ace and his brother Declan start to heal. And speaking of the eldest Braddock… Man, I hope author duo Liza Kendall have a book in store for Declan. The often stoic rancher grabbed my heart in the first Silverlake Ranch book and hasn’t let go since. So while I finished Mia and Ace’s book a satisfied reader, I am seriously on the edge of my seat, hoping Declan gets a book.

The Soccer Star: A Sports Romance (A Keeper Series, #2) by: Melissa McClone
The Soccer Star: A Sports Romance (A Keeper Series, #2) - Melissa McClone

 

 

 

The Soccer Star: A Sports Romance by Melissa McClone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Soccer Star is a wonderful example of why to never judge a book by it's cover. McClone puts her best heart forward and reminds us all what empathy means. Ryker and Lucy don't always make the greatest first impressions, yet something about them makes it hard to write them off completely. At the worst of times two strangers learn what it means to bring out the best in each other. It's always a pleasure to get lost within a Melissa McClone book. With an open heart and a little understanding maybe love can change the world.

Cover & Excerpt Reveal - Behind The Count

COVER & EXCERPT REVEAL

BEHIND THE COUNT by Kimberly Readnour

Release Date: April 30, 2020


Cover Design: Daqri Bernardo / Covers by Combs

Genre: Sports Romance
Trope: Forbidden, angsty, best friend's sister

 


SYNOPSIS

 

Dating my brother’s best friend? Yeah, that’s forbidden…

Noah Geren.
Cessna University’s starting catcher.
Sensible.
My life-long crush.
And totally off-limits.

I only want a few things in life.
Graduate with a fashion degree.
To be taken seriously.
And Noah Geren.

After my first year of college, I let the idea of him go.
And it almost worked

Until that late summer night.

Shannon Smith.
My best friend’s sister.
The secret star of my late-night fantasies.
Hotter than sin.
Unattainable

There’s a code among best friends and teammates—no dating their sisters.
Too bad I didn’t listen.

One weak moment changed everything.
And nothing at all.

I’m not good for her.

They call me the sensible one,
But the more Shannon and I are forced to be together,
Staying away makes less sense,
And the reasons become hard to remember.
But I need to stay strong.
For reasons she’ll never understand.

EXCERPT

 

The front doorbell rings, ending any further primping. I trample down the stairs, surprised Noah walked instead of driving. The distance isn’t far, considering he lives next door, but this rain is relentless. I open the door with every intent to ask, but the question dies on my tongue the moment he comes in to view.

 

His cropped hair is soaked, making the normally light brown hue a shade darker. His arm rests against the door frame while the wet fabric clings to his broad chest, defining every delicious cut muscle. The low-slung jeans reveal just enough skin as water droplets skate down his happy trail. I can barely breathe. I’m so busy checking him out I don’t notice the door frame acting as his support until he stumbles.

 

“Are you okay?” I attempt to break his fall, but he straightens himself before I reach him.

“I’m fine.” He plays it off by keeping his tone light, but the slight slur to his speech is unmistakable. Noah’s drunk, which is surprising, considering he never drinks. “I’m more concerned about you. The storm’s nasty.”

 

Those deep-green eyes trap me in place, the small scar above his left eye a constant reminder of how many years I’ve wanted to tell him how much I want him. How I longed for the day he’d see me for more than his friend’s little sister. I thought this crush would fizzle over time, but each moment we spend together only serves to fuel my want. The only thing keeping my secret safe is the fear of being humiliated and rejected. There’s one thing I know for sure; Noah Geren is clueless when it comes to my feelings about him.

 

He runs his fingertips down the side of my face. “You don’t need to be scared.”

My heart hammers in my chest but from a different reason other than the storm. Are my thoughts so easily readable? No, don’t be stupid. He’s only concerned because of the storm.

 

“You shouldn’t have walked over in the rain.” I push the door back farther to let him inside.

 

“’Tis ’kay. I had to check on you.”

 

“I appreciate that, but you’re soaking wet.” I place my arms around his waist and shiver from his wetness pressed against me. Or maybe, it’s from being tucked against his hard frame. It’s difficult to tell. “Take your shoes off. Mom will kill me if you track water on the floor.”

 

Once he complies, I lead him toward the living room, but we stop at the edge of the room. My gaze lands on the white cloth-covered furniture. Yeah, that’s not going to work. I need to get him changed into some dry clothes. Otherwise, there won’t be anywhere for him to sit.

 

“Let’s go upstairs.”

 

He whips his head toward me. “That’s not a good idea.”

 

“What? Why?” I guide his body toward the stairs.

 

“You don’t know.”

 

“Know what?” Truthfully, I want to laugh because I’ve never seen Noah drunk. He’s the designated driver. He’s meticulous about what he puts in his body. Food being fuel and having to put the correct fuel in or whatever reasoning he uses.

 

“What?” I prompt again.

 

“That I like you.”

 

My heart stutters as my mind tries to put more meaning behind his words. I know he likes me, but what I want is so much more than being Braxton’s kid sister.

 

“Yeah, I like you too.” Just more than you’ll ever know.

 

He stops walking and turns to face me. His mouth opens, and for a hopeful moment, I think he’s about to confess some suppressed undying love, but nothing comes out. My body deflates. Even in his drunken state, he can’t admit he likes me as more than just a friend, which serves to reconfirm the fact friendship is all that will ever be between us.

 

“Come on, we need to get you some dry clothes.”
