A Sports Romance While My Beloved Sports are Away

I think I’m going to need to start paying for a television package just so I can watch sports. I mean, I was doing fine before the pandemic started. Then, all of a sudden, if there was a game I wanted to watch, I couldn’t go to a bar and see it and soon after that, many sports were cancelled altogether. This is relevant to the review, I swear! I started picking up sport romances to console myself from the sudden dearth of sports in my life, and now my Kindle queue is full of various fictional athletes and their potential love interests, which is how I ended up reading The Chase.

Fixie Farr Finds a Favor

When I read the blurb for I Owe You One, I was immediately excited to start reading the book.

When a stranger asks her to watch his laptop in a coffee shop while he takes a call, she is happy to help. And when she ends up saving the stranger’s laptop from disaster, he insists on giving her an IOU for a favor. According to the blurb, a hilarious bout of favor-trading and love-falling ensues.

Miscommunication as Romance in One Taste of You

One Taste of You was the first contemporary romance to catch my eye in a while. The blurb claims that after one super-hot night together, homicide detective Zeke Chance made a stupid mistake and never expected to see Zoe Sullivan again. When a killer goes after Zoe, Zeke takes the opportunity to make up for his error. Cute, right? So, I picked it up.

Christmas Romance in July

It. Is. Too. Hot. I have been dealing with this year’s ridiculous heat wave by watching Christmas Rom Coms - watching people shiver in too-cold air is a good way to find myself appreciating the 100-degree-plus weather. When I saw this book on my Book Bub list, I thought it was the perfect way to cool down and get some much-needed time away from my television.
