This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Risky Game by Tracy Solheim
Publication Date: May 06th 2014
Baltimore Blaze tight end Brody Janik is a natural-born football star. At twenty-seven, his record-breaking athletic performance and his cover-boy good looks have turned him into a household name. But Brody’s hiding a major secret behind his charming public persona: a health condition that may cut his career short.
PhD candidate Shannon “Shay” Everett works multiple jobs to put herself through school—including an unpaid internship with the Blaze training department. Strapped for cash, Shay answers the call of an NFL gossip blogger to uncover personal details about the Blaze players. Sneaking into the locker room one night, she gets entangled in Brody’s secret and swept up by his charm.
Brody isn’t sure what to make of the gawky girl with the whiskey eyes, especially when he discovers she was snooping. His first instinct is to turn her in as a snitch, but she could destroy him by sharing his secret. Instead, he decides to keep her close perhaps closer than either of them originally intended .
I read the first book in this series in October of 2013 and loved it. I read it in one sitting and it is amazing. Tracy Solheim gave me every thing I ever wanted in a contemporary sports romance. I only had a short wait for the second book, it wasn’t an easy wait, and I devoured that one as well. Solheim’s books are wonderful and I am looking for to the novella that is out in April, then for this third book in the series. If you have not read them yet [why haven’t you? I’ve talked about them several times now] you should definitely check them out!
