Please give a warm welcome to Julie Brannagh! She’s here to share a Top Ten list about Drew, her hunky hero from Covering Kendall.
The top five ways Drew McCoy of COVERING KENDALL unwinds after a game
Drew’s workplace isn’t a cubicle in an office or on a construction site. He spends his Sunday afternoons from September until February each year playing in front of 70,000+ screaming fans. Drew loves what he does, but it’s tough for him (and many other pro football players!) to unwind after a game. Here’s the top five things Drew might be doing shortly after he walks through the front door of his house on a Sunday night…
Drew’s a little hungry after chasing some other team’s quarterback around Sharks Stadium for three hours. As a result, he might be out for dinner with one or more of his teammates.
Zach Anderson stopped by his locker as Drew picked up the overnight bag he brought to home games. Read more
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Sawyer! Describe yourself in five words or less.
[Sawyer Bennett] Empathetic, funny, creative, honest, procrastinator
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about your book?
[Sawyer Bennett] Alex is the first book in my new series with Loveswept, called the Cold Fury Hockey Series. Alex Crossman is a professional hockey player with the Carolina Cold Fury. He’s a bit damaged, a little bit of an ass, and completely averse to developing relationships with people. He’s one of those men that you just want to “fix”. Sutton Price is a social worker that gets sort of gets stuck with Alex to create an outreach program for at-risk youth. Both of them have traumatic backgrounds, but both of them let it shape them differently in their adult lives. This is very much a book about Alex’s journey to really find himself and let the past go. Oh, and it’s pretty steamy and romantic as well!!! Read more

I had a hard time with Winning Ruby Heart. I was fascinated with the premise, especially with all of the reports of terrible behavior by athletes during the last week. While Ruby hasn’t committed domestic abuse, she has committed abuse of another kind: she doped before the Olympics, costing her a gold medal and leaving her reputation in tatters. She was forced to forfeit the one thing she lived for. Now she can no longer participate in any Olympic sport, and for a period of five years, she can’t compete in any sport at all. Read more
I jumped all over this book for two reasons; it features a quarterback hero, and it’s a release under Harlequin’s Kimani imprint. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading anything under this imprint, and since I am a sucker for all things Harlequin, I started hopping up and down with my arm in the air, shouting, “Oh, pick me! Pick me to read this one!” Read more

Some Like it Sinful was bumped to the top of the review pile for one reason – it’s about a hockey player. Oh, and a pastry chef. How could I resist this combination of sugar and spice vs. tough guy brawn? I’m from Detroit and I’ve been a Red Wings fan forever. I live with a hockey nut, too, so there’s no escape from the madness, at least until the Wings are knocked out of the playoffs – again. Then the whole city pouts while putting on a brave face and vowing, “We’ll go all the way next year!” So, yeah, I wanted to read this – badly! Read more
