On The DL by Laramie Briscoe




Title: On the DL
Series: The MVP Duet #1
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Sports/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 20, 2018



Blurb

A second-chance romance as scorching hot as a baseball diamond in August.

Slater "Savage" Harlow

Winning the MVP award for the Birmingham Bandits last year was the highlight of my baseball career. It was the culmination of childhood dreams, calculated adult decisions, sacrifice, and a hell of a lot of focus. Tearing my ACL in spring training? Not what I expected at all.

Now I'm home, in small town Georgia, rehabbing in the comfort of my own home, with people I know. I'm connecting with friends I haven't had time to talk to in years, spending days at home with my parents, and getting to watch my little brother play minor league baseball.

What I don't expect is to see Malone Fulcher walking into Del's Diner one morning while having my coffee and egg whites.

She's old flame, the one who got away, and the woman I compare all others to.

Malone Fulcher

Spending the summer in my hometown wasn't what I had planned, but it's what I need. Recovering from a hard year, both personally and professionally, I need to reconnect with who I am. When my mom encouraged me to come home and do some soul searching, I can't say no.

Memories are all over this small town, from the Baptist Church to the east field on my parents farm, to the diner. On my second day in town, I decide to go in, memories be damned.

I lost my breath as soon as I saw "Savage" Harlow sitting alone at a booth. Our eyes lock, my heart flutters, and my hands shake - all the same way they did back in high school. But back then we couldn't make it work. Going our separate ways to differing colleges, we decided we weren't meant to be.

A decade later, as soon as our eyes meet, I'm wondering if we were right, because those green eyes of his do nothing but take me to a past that I can see being my future.

Author's Note: This does end in somewhat of a cliffhanger!

 I am such a sucker for a second-chance love. Add in a sexy baseball player and you have me hooked. Briscoe never fails to capture my heart and keep me enthralled to the very last page, and this one is no exception. 
I fell in love with Slater and Malone from the beginning. I loved watching them learn who the other has become after all those years. I couldn't get enough of them!
Of course, being a duet, it ended in a bit of a cliffhanger, but don't worry the second isn't far away (I checked). Can't wait to get my hands on the next part of this amazing story!

One thing you can say is this book is really raw. It hits you hard with these twists and unexpected moments that leave you going what just happened! Nixon is just wow. I absolutely adore him and his character. I think it is because he is so flawed and trying to find himself. The connection him and Rowen have is heart stopping as things get revealed and so forth. I do recommend reading the Four Fathers series to get a better understanding of what and why things are happening.
Overall, this is a great kick off to the spin off series. I was in awe majority of the book and found I could not put it down at all. I enjoy this author’s writing very much and this one did not disappoint whatsoever.

Meet Author Ker Dukey 



I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script. I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so I thought it best that I tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made of light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Quit Your Pitchin' by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: Quit Your Pitchin'
Series: There's No Crying in Baseball
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: July 20, 2018 Cover Model: Chase Ketron Photographer: FuriousFotog
What’s wrong with my butt?
She means those words to be directed toward the woman beside her, not him. But he can’t stop himself
from answering. Not when her ass is the most magnificent thing he’s seen in his life.
Apparently, answering her with ‘not a damn thing’ wasn’t what she was expecting.
She likely wasn’t expecting the baseball she took to the face at his next at bat, either.
All it takes is one ill-fated foul ball, and George Hoffman, Lumberjacks center fielder, falls head over
heels in love with Wrigley Field—and yes, that is her real name.
From that point forward, George and Wrigley fall into a fast whirlwind love that ends with them eloping
to Vegas. And he has his potty mouth, titty bar owning, pain in the ass grandmother to thank for it.
Not that he’s complaining or anything.
Who wouldn’t want to be married to a woman that made his heart race like he was in the final game of
the World Series?
The only problem is trying to convince her of that.




OMG I loved this one! Vale once again delivers an amazingly sweet, sexy story that kept me turning the pages. I couldn't put it down.
I fell in love with George from the start, and Wrigley is all kinds of fun and sassy. They hit me right in the feels and I loved every single second of it.
I absolutely cannot wait to see what Vale brings us with the next in this series!

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 8, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Surrender by Amy Daws




Title: Surrender
The Final Harris Brother Duet #1
Series: The Harris Brothers #4
Author: Amy Daws
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: July 19, 2018



Blurb

One night of complete surrender is all it takes.

Gareth Harris is Manchester United’s reclusive star defender. He has control over all aspects of his life. But a lifetime of supporting his siblings and filling in for an emotionally absent father has taken its toll.

Sloan Montgomery is a clothing stylist whose world was turned upside down when she found herself pregnant and moving to Manchester with a man who was never supposed to be her forever. Now recently divorced and struggling with shared custody of her daughter, control is a fleeting concept for this American living in England.

Both Gareth and Sloan are in need of a release.

A moment in time where they can forget about their pasts and family pressures...and just...

…surrender.

No one could predict what happens when both of their defences are down.

Surrender is part one of The Final Harris Brother Duet and concludes with Dominate. The Final Harris Brother Duet reads great as a duo, but to maximize enjoyment, check out the first three brothers’ books in Challenge, Endurance, and Keeper.

One thing about this book is that it will gut you. It is raw, passionate and so so emotional. My heart shattered at times. For Gareth and everything he has had to endure including the pain of his mother passing. For Sloan and being subjected to the evil ex and his mother and everything with it. This story starts with a slow burn as you navigate how these two really got together and close and how their dynamic really works. Their banter is hilarious but also so steamy. You can feel the undercurrents between these two as they would literally set the pages on fire. I loved seeing Gareth and Sloan submit to each other in their own ways. It was panty melting but also heartbreaking at times because of the reasoning. 
This story keeps you on your toes with lots of ups and downs and lots of Harris insanity. But that ending… I knew it was a duet so going into this, it was gonna have a cliffy of some sort. However, I did not expect what we got! My jaw dropped and lots of what the wtf just happened. I had to reread the last few paragraphs because I did not want to believe that was what was happening! I am seriously dying for part two! BRING IT ON!!! I NEEEEEEEEED IT!!!
