Book Guilty Pleasures: Sports Romances

Posted April 10, 2017 by Andi in Book Guilty Pleasures / 1 Comment

We all have them, those books that we consider “guilty pleasures”. Some people love a good motorcycle gang book, some like a May/December romance, some are for historical fictions. Whatever your book pleasure is it brings joy into your life, sometimes the cheesier the better,

In this new series of posts I will talk about some of my Book Guilty Pleasures. I’m not sure how often I will post these but I hope to have at least 4/5 different types of Book Guilty Pleasures. First up, sports romances.

They are my thing. They have been for a while. My love of them started when I read Jaci Burton’s Play by Play series and Erin McCarthy’s Fast Track series and has only grown since. Some that I have read have been really good and some have been so bad they are good. But honestly even a good/bad sports romance makes me happy. Here are some of my favorites:

Rusk University Series – Cora Carmack
Sport: Football (college)
Cora Carmack’s Rusk University series is one of my FAVORITE sports romances. I love how different all three books are, with book 2 being my handsdown favorite so far (SILAS ♥♥♥). Book 4 is finally out May 1st and I can not wait! I have been dying for this one for a long time.

Off Campus Series – Elle Kennedy
Sport: Hockey (college)
Elle Kennedy wrote a series about a bunch of hot college hockey boys and I was hooked from page one. Hannah and Garrett’s story is one of my favorite plots in books. And they have one of the best first kisses because it is so totally them. But The Score? Now that is where my heart lies. I died laughing at one part of that book and I still laugh thinking about it. Dean is just perfect and I was not disappointed with him at all. This is series is finished as far as I know.

Him Series – Elle Kennedy/Sarina Bowen
Sport: Hockey (professional)
I started this joint venture by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy by accident. I was just planning to read a chapter of Him and before I knew it it was after midnight and I was halfway done. Wes and Jamie’s story was just addictive. I loved how everything played out with this and how strong their friendship was. I didn’t love Us as much, but since it was part of their story I read it. There has since been a spin-off series WAGs)

Cold Fury Hockey Series – Sawyer Bennett
Sport: Hockey (professional)
I binge read the first 4 books in this series in April 2016 and the read the 5th, Hawke, in June of the same year. They were serious crack reads for me. I was addicted from the start and wanted to know more about each of these guys. Garrett, Zack and Ryker have been my favorites and I recently learned about the last 3 books (Lucas out in September). I really need to get back on my read of these guys.

Eastshore Tigers Series – Alison Henricks
Sport: Football (college)
I have only read the first one of this series and it was cracktastic, and I mean that in the best of ways. It was like Him, but with hot football guys and I do love me some football guys. I have been meaning to read the other books in the series but I have been distracted and honestly forgot. Hopefully soon I can read book 2.

Games On Series – Kristen Callihan
Sport: Football (college)
I have read and enjoyed the first 3 books of this series. They were fun and entertaining and the boys were hot. I think The Game Plan was my favorite out of the ones I read and I’m really looking forward to book 4, which is out next week. There also is a 5th book but it has not cover or title.

And there you have some of my favorite sports romance guilty pleasure reads. I know there are a ton more out there that I didn’t list, both ones I want to read and ones I don’t even know about). If you have any sports romance suggestions feel free to tell me about them in the comments.
