Goodreads Summary
There’s no playing it safe in love or baseball in this sparkling debut, perfect for fans of Morgan Matson and Kasie West.

Marnie has never had a hard time fitting in with the guys. It would take a lot more than their goofy antics to keep her from joining them at the neighborhood sandlot to do what she loves best: play ball.

Goodreads Summary
You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

Winter Olympics: Top Five Events

Fun fact about me: I suck at sports. I really do. However, what I lack in athletic ability I make up for with my enthusiasm and appreciation of sports. February is setting up to be a good month for sports. To start, we have the Six Nations, which is basically a rugby tournament that unleashes my Welsh pride. However, we also have The Winter Olympics to look forward to this month. The Winter Olympics are always a highlight for me, and truth be told I prefer the Winter Olympics to the Summer one. So, with the 2018 Winter Olympics just around the corner and no signs of this book slump leaving me anytime soon, I thought I’d take the time to share with you my top five must-watch events at the Winter Olympics.
