Welcome to the Sports!
The Sport Series was something I planned to write, but it was unique to me in that it would be linked by sports and not by characters. I chose the sports based on a couple of things. Volleyball was and always will be my favorite sport. I’d never read a LesFic romance about archery and thought it would be fun to throw an age-gap in there. Softball was the sport I played the longest and thought it would be fun to write about. And soccer was a sport I’d never played but had been a fan of for years, and I wanted to write a slow burn-romance with soccer in the background.
The Sports Series was born, and after I wrote Finding a Keeper, I got a lot of requests to write about Emily and Alison from that book, so I added a novella with them as the focus.
Wyatt Wicked, 28
Sports Psychologist, 29
Sports Series Book #1. This series is related by a sports theme, not by characters.
Everly Holman is between an internship and, hopefully, finding her dream job when she finds an online listing she thinks will be perfect for her. As a relatively new sports psychologist, she’s worried she won’t find the right place for herself. When she applies for a job with the Los Angeles Legends, the professional women’s volleyball team, she finally feels at home.
Wyatt Wicked is the number one volleyball player in the world. She could play in any professional league and had played in many during her career. When the US starts the first professional women’s league, she’s eager to play on her home soil and finally do the thing she loves most in her home country.
Wyatt’s not one to trust psychology in sports. But when she meets Everly Holman, Wyatt not only starts trusting the woman to help improve her game, she also sees Everly as much more than the team doctor. Unfortunately for her, Everly might not be willing to risk her career over their growing feelings. As they both work to establish the fledgling league, they discover that, sometimes, falling in love is worth the possibility of losing everything.
