Rose

Sometimes life rears its ugly head and messes up your world.

I know too well. It happened to me five years ago when I lost my fiancé.

It took me awhile to get back on my feet, but I finally got my life in order.

Don’t commit. Don’t get attached. Guard your heart.

Seemed plausible…until a tall, dark and gorgeous man commands my attention.

He is the worst kind of temptation.

Funny, charming, and did I mention hot?

Every woman’s fantasy.

A professional baseball player.

Suit up heart because I have no desire to become one of his stats.

John

Sometimes life drops a little miracle right in front of you.

In the form of a beautiful goddess.

Who’s also intelligent.

Snarky.

Oh, and doesn’t fall for my bullshit.

In fact, I don’t even think she likes me.

That’s okay.

I’m an athlete, and I’m used to challenges.

You don’t make it as far as I have in my sport without having goals in mind.

I’ll pursue her like I’m pursuing the MVP award this season.

And, I will conquer.

My name is Tonya Clark. I live in a small town in Southern California with my amazingly supportive husband and two daughters. I fell in love with romance in the eighth grade and haven’t put down books since then.

I own a hair salon, a photography business, and coach soccer, which may leave the question when do I write? It’s how I relax, shutting my brain off to everything else and getting lost in the story. Believe it or not I need noise around me to write and a bowl of peanut M&Ms.

Game Changer is an almost perfect sports romance

Game ChangerGame Changer by Rachel Reid

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oooh I loved this one. I totally get what Dani meant though with her comment that there’s lots of sex because there definitely is!

However, I didn’t find it too overwhelming or that the narrative was missing out on story development because of all the sex. I think it felt believable for me that a closeted ice hockey star would go absolutely nuts once he’d found someone he trusted enough to be himself with and Scott and Kip were smoking hot!

I absolutely adored the meet/cute in this one. Scott comes into the shop where history graduate Kip is working while he tries to find a dream job in a museum and orders a smoothie. Kip has no clue that he’s the captain of the city’s New York Admirals and a bit of a sports megastar.

I also loved that this pair, in the main, talked a lot. There wasn’t really much in the way of miscommunication up until the Admirals made the playoffs and Kip started to feel a bit like a dirty secret as Scott became super busy but couldn’t/wouldn’t bring him along to any of the club’s official events.

The blow out was fairly short and over with a bit of common sense talking by Kip’s dad (who was awesome) and from Scott’s friends on the team (also awesome!) and I’d like to also give a shout-out here to all the secondary characters, who were fully fleshed out and quite vivid even in their limited page time – especially Kip’s best friend Elena and Maria who he worked with at the smoothie bar.

Now I want more from the Admirals because there’s that long tall Finnish defender and the somewhat mouthy Russian from the Boston opposition who I think might be open for more adventures!

Mathieu Beresford was so close to seeing his dream come true.

The thirty-eight-year-old captain of the Buffalo Surge had led his team to the final round of the playoffs with his aggressive defensive play and leadership. During the first game of the championship series, he was taken down, and his leg snapped upon impact with the boards. From his hospital bed, Mathieu watched his team go on to win it all.

Adrift in anger, resentment, and the new direction of his life, he returns to his mansion along the St. Lawrence River. Alone and sulking, Mathieu is not prepared for Indigo Neu to enter his life.

The gender flux twenty-year-old botany major signs on to play nursemaid, confidant, and groundskeeper over the summer and slowly leads Mathieu out of his confusion––one tender smile and touch at a time.

The deeper Mathieu falls, the more he wonders if being lost might not be so bad after all.

Another hit in the Fake Boyfriend series from Eden Finley

39863941Trick Play by Eden Finley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another hit from Eden Finley in this series all focused on the fake boyfriend trope.

This one worked even better for me than the first one, which I also really enjoyed, as I absolutely loved both characters.

Noah was all prickly and unwilling to trust anyone, perfectly understandable when you find out what happened when he was young and impressionable. Matt was a reluctant figure under the spotlight, outed and dumped by his team.

But they were fabulous together, the banter was on form and prickly Noah found that his role as the fake boyfriend was way more than a means to annoy his politician father.

It was also good to catch up with Damon and Maddox from book one and see them still happy together.

There are a few new potential pairings nudging their way into the storyline in this book too and I’m looking forward to reading about Lennon the journalist and Olaf the hockey player.

And yes, I’d love to get quarterback Talon’s story too, especially if it pairs him with his college hook up and fellow NFL player Miller.

Sander March is one season away from the pros, or so everyone tells him.

If only Sander had as much faith in his ability as the Cougar coaching staff does. Outwardly, he’s cocksure, borderline bitter, and slightly sarcastic. All that strut and sass hides a wounded soul though.

Working to hide a brutal past filled with humiliation, abuse, and a family member who still haunts him, Sander has never found the kind of comfort and understanding he so desperately needs. Until he meets Mateo Castillo, a minor league baseball player for the nearby Elmira Egrets. Mateo and Sander click instantly, and a budding friendship develops between the two athletes.

Mateo then introduces Sander to his boyfriend, Noah Coombs, an aspiring manga comic creator. The three men find themselves bonding strongly, and that slowly gives way to sexual attraction. Eventually, Mateo and Noah invite Sander into their relationship. The path to happiness isn’t going to be easy for Sander as he faces criticism from his friends, teammates, and the press for his choices.

The brash young star can handle all that, it’s when his abuser shows up in Cayuga that Sander fears not only for his own safety, but for the lives of the two men he has grown to love. Will Sander’s past tear him away from Mateo and Noah, or will he be able to leave the darkness behind?

Warning – This story has disturbing subject matter.

I like some sports in my MMM romances!

Three-Man Advantage: MMM Hockey Romance (Tripping Book 2)Three-Man Advantage: MMM Hockey Romance by Ariel Bishop

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There’s a lot more actual sport in this one and I think the book was better for it. The real sense of family and friendship you get in a team sport came across much stronger here.

I enjoyed this menage, I think it worked well and Bo and Sasha absorbing David into their relations was done organically and felt completely believable.

David may feel it’s only a temporary thing, but both other men very quickly realise they’d like it to be a permanent situation.

This book is relatively low angst and super steamy with some seriously smexy threesomes which were well written and worked naturally in the interchangeable partnership.

I like how no one bats an eye either in this series, unbelievable in the real world but perfectly wonderful that this ice hockey league and its teams and supporters are totally accepting.
