Play by Play by Kate Donovan  Blurb Former college football star Jake Dublin’s wildly popular sports blog also details his personal life. And lately it’s all about Sophie, the pretty young woman who just moved into his apartment building. His readers know her only as “Elevator Girl,” and they’re all rooting for Jake to score. The blog posts and banter with his followers are all in good fun, and he fully intends to come clean with the woman he’s wooing and wowing. That is, until she confides that she grew up in a house full of jocks and even dated a few. Her verdict? Never again! Jake knows he needs to confess. But somewhere along the line he fell in love with Sophie and can’t stand the thought of losing her. So he procrastinates, and blogs, and digs himself deeper into a hole, until it all leads to a showdown that’s so nail-biting, not even the best play-by-play guy could ever have seen it coming.

Book Club Thursday: A favorite Family

Image
This is one of the reasons I love series, because let's face it, family comes in many different ways. Some of them by blood while other's are by choice. When we picked the theme, favorite families, I couldn't believe how many I wanted to talk about. I finally narrowed it down to one family. Now these brothers aren't blood brothers, they are a family by choice. One of my favorite kind. My pick is the family from Nora Roberts Chesapeake Bay Series. These guys put family first, before all other. You've got to love them.  A champion boat racer, Cameron Quinn traveled the world spending his winnings on champagne and women. But when his dying father calls him home to care for Seth, a troubled young boy not unlike Cameron once was, his life changes overnight. Of the three Quinn brothers, it was Ethan who shared his father’s passion for the Maryland shore. And now with his father gone, Ethan is determined to make the family boatbuilding business a su
