Howdy-ho, Delighted Readers!
I love doing book tags and reading everyone else’s book tag posts so of course I had to slip in a book tag for our event.
The tag was originally called Sports Book Tag and was created by vlogger, A Tale of Two Ashleys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9KPKoc8lwA&t=73s
I don’t read straight sports fiction or non-fiction (much) so I will be posting all romance-related books for the tag. Oh, and while I’m doing all sports themed books here, feel free to answer with even non-sports books.
Let’s get the ball rolling then…
BASKETBALL: What is the best multi/dual POV book in your opinion?
Most of the sports romances I read fall into this category so it was something of an eeny meanie minie moe thing. I settled on one of the most beautiful stories I’ve ever read. Both the hero and heroine broke my heart and made me cry so much. Sweet Soul by Tillie Cole
SOCCER: What book kept your adrenaline pumping?
Most of the MMA sports romances I read had some suspense to them, but there was one stand out that was loaded with action and fast-paced. Out For the Count by Michele Mannon[spacer]
SOFTBALL: What book seemed surface level, but hit hard when you actually read it?
Again, several of seemingly light and sexy sporty stories had some surprising depth. This m/m college jock romance was one of them. Frat Boy and Toppy by Anne Tenino
VOLLEYBALL: If things go your way, it’s sheer luck. What book is it?
LOL, I figured a guy who had a rep for a temper, was an older player fighting for a spot on the starting line-up, and a heroine who didn’t have a clue about the sport might be in need of sheer luck so I picked Kate Willoughby’s On the Surface would fit the bill.
HOCKEY: What book has enough tension that it made you feel you was skating on thin ice?
I immediately thought of this one. They had a one night stand and she hid the fact that they made a baby until health needs forced her to tell a guy who grew up without a father that he was one. Whew boy did it get sticky there for a while in this one. Foolish Games by Tracy Solheim
FOOTBALL: What book attacked you from all angles?
This new to me author and book came as an unexpected surprise. It had all the feels, discovery, and great character development in a slow burn romance for a college swimmer and a musician in this m/m college romance: Let There Be Light by A.M. Johnson
So, that’s the Sports Romance Tag. We’d love for you to consider yourself tagged and do it on your own blog or social media page. Toss your link in the comments so we can come visit. Hey, even putting your answers in the comments would be fun if you don’t want to bother with a post.
