Our Favorite Sports Romances
I think it’s fair to say a lot of us love reading contemporary romances that center around sports, don’t we? We have our favorite series/authors/sports and generally these books will leave you with a smile on your face. NFL season is just getting started and maybe you’re feeling that itch to pick up a sports themed book wo we thought it would be great to pick author’s brains and ask them what’s THEIR favorite sports romances and maybe give you something new to read or simply a peak into their reading tastes. This week it’s all about author recommendations here at Under the Covers and you’ll have daily opportunities to enter our week-long giveaway!
Today we have author Sawyer Bennett sharing with us one of her fave series.
Since I’m a total hockey fan, I would highly recommend the Bad Motherpucker books by Lili Valente! She has written a hot, hilarious series, filled with sexy-as-sin hockey players, witty banter, and the perfect amount of heat, both on and off the ice!
The first book in the series is HOT AS PUCK, and the fun continues with Sexy Motherpucker and Puck Aholic. The whole series can be read as standalones, but trust me…you won’t want to miss a single pucking word. The next book in the series, PUCK ME BABY, releases October 13, and features dangerously sexy defenseman, Alexi Petrov, an alpha male who’s falling hard for the mother of his unborn baby. Hockey, alpha, baby daddy? Where do I sign that contract?
This series had me like a defenseman in the playoffs—in stitches! Skipping this series will land you straight in the penalty box, so check out this series for a seriously pucking good time! You can thank me later!
Don’t miss Lucas by Sawyer Bennett
Released: September 19th 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Cold Fury Hockey #8
Published by Loveswept
The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.
Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.
Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.
Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately:
