You know those stories where the smart girl tutors the dumb
jock? This isn’t it.
Blair
What’s the probability of insulting the one guy on campus I
need to help me pass statistics? If I knew, I wouldn’t be standing in front of
Wes Reynolds begging him to tutor me.
Basketball player, sexy, arrogant, always sleeping through
class… these are the things I knew about him. What I didn’t know is that he is
a seriously smart jock.
Wes
What’s the best way to get rid of the peppy and unrelenting
girl that keeps asking me to tutor her? If I knew, I wouldn’t be staring at her
tan legs and attempting to teach her statistics.
Sorority girl, fine as f**k, determined, ball buster… these
are the things I knew about her. What I didn’t know is that she is all the
things I didn’t realize I wanted or needed.
Or that one semester with her would change everything.

 

 

Excerpt
“Rise and shine,” Joel says as he nudges me. I’m not asleep.
I wish I were. My eyes are closed, hat pulled down, but there’s no sleep to be
had.
“She’s coming back for more.” The tone in his voice is
almost inspired.
I don’t have to look up to know who he’s talking about, but
I do anyway. She’s the most entertaining thing about this class. Open my eyes
and lift the hat, turn it backward so my view isn’t the least bit blocked.
Today she’s wearing little pink shorts that show off tan
legs, yellow tennis shoes that don’t match but somehow work, and a bracelet
with a little charm around her left ankle. It’s too small to make out, but I
stare anyway. Her brown hair is pulled up in a high ponytail, and she has a
megawatt smile plastered on her face. A big bow on top of her head is all she’d
need to look like head cheerleader of my high school fantasies.
“Wes, hey, can I talk to you for a second?”
“What’s up?”
I’m hella impressed by the balls on this chick. She’s put
her foot in her mouth, not once, but twice, and damn near insulted the entire
student athlete population, but she keeps coming back. She has determination
and grit. I admire that about her.
I also am not in the least bit offended by her assumption
that I’m a dumb jock. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t surprised she came right
out and asked who my tutor was, but I know exactly what it looks like. I’ve fed
into the stereotype for years, doing nothing to make it seem otherwise. Well,
nothing but get straight A’s.
“I have sort of a favor.”
“What’s up?” I stand to walk with her out of the class.
“The tutor center was a bust. I know you said . . .” She
looks like she’s choosing her words carefully. “Do you have old study notes or
tests from previous semesters?”
“Still convinced I’m not capable of passing on my own, huh?”
“I’m sorry, really, no offense. I just want in on whatever
study materials you’re using. I can’t afford to fail another test. What’s your
secret?”
The secret? I’m fucking smart. Photographic memory smart and
statistics is my whole world, but I can’t resist messing with her.
“You know, saying no offense doesn’t make whatever you’re
saying less offensive. It just makes you feel better about saying something
offensive.”
Joel snickers behind me. I just can’t resist fucking with
her. She’s making it too easy.
“Sorry. I’m really so sorry. What about the other guys on
the team? Anyone have any awesome math tutors who aren’t available to us
non-jock students? I can pay.”
“Couldn’t say for sure, but I don’t think so. Most the guys
hold their own academically.” I lean in catching a whiff of her hair. It smells
good—like sugar cookies or candy canes or something sugary sweet that I want to
sink my teeth into. “Shocking, I know.”
Her shoulders slump in defeat, and I can tell she’s finally
accepted that I have no answers for her. At this point, I almost wish I knew of
someone to send her to. I don’t exactly travel in circles that clue me in on
secret study sessions and underground tutor societies.
“Thanks anyway.” She gives a little wave with the hand
clutched around the strap of her backpack.
Joel catches up to me, and we watch as she crosses the
campus toward the library. “Dude. That chick . . .”
“I know,” I say, and we continue to stare after her
completely awe stricken.

Blog Tour COMMANDER in BRIEFS by Kristy Marie

Commander in Briefs is a novel that accomplishes so much more than a typical romance. The first lines lured me in, the story held me hostage, and the characters stole my heart.”

Commander in Briefs is LIVE and 99 cents for a LIMITED TIME ONLY! Read it for free with Kindle Unlimited!Commander in Briefs

by Kristy Marie
Publication Date : December 5, 2017
Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Fifteen years ago, I saw him
Seven years ago, I begged him.

Locked in a twisted game of friends, I gave Theo Von Bremen everything.
We were reckless.
We were dangerous.
We were crazy in love.

Until he came along.

Cade breathed fire into my soul, forever changing my direction
He was my salvation.
I was his redemption.
He became my mission.

I became his Commander.

But where does that leave Theo?
Exactly where I want him.

On his knees.


 

 

A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, I started this journey back in 2009, reading and writing when my daughter was napping. I read everything I could get my hands on, finding my passion among romance authors. Establishing my place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became my dirty, late-night secret as opposed to my career.

After eight long years, I am days away from releasing my debut novel, Commander in Briefs. I hope you enjoy Anniston and Theo’s story. It was a long road with these guys, but I can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.

Cade’s story is scheduled to release summer of 2018.

 

My Book Review

I am shocked this is Kristy Marie’s debut novel! It is so well written. With all the steamy romance in this book usually I would get bored or it gets redundant, but NOT in this book!

Commander in Briefs led me on quite the roller coaster! I had no clue where this book was going to take me, and I assumed based on the title it was maybe a political romance? Nope! I will let you know its a mashup of a Baseball sports romance and Military romance-ISH tied into one along with several other layers to the story.

Anniston & Theo are childhood friends turned Friends with Benefits. Their banter and ‘games’ have you laughing out loud and wanting them to face their reality of being together. I really love Theo and his selfish, childish at times, behavior because that is most likely what a playboy, hot baseball pitcher is probably like in the MLB with everyone fawning all over him. All in all this is a great book and I look forward to what Kristy Marie comes up with next for this series!

Fast Five Friday BASEBALL ROMANCES

Happy Friday Booknerds!

 

Did you watch the World Series and already miss baseball season? I’ve never been a major major baseball fan, football is more my jam. But I do LOVE going to a baseball game and the beer always tastes better there, ha! I always joked that my children will not play any sports that are not timed, but I just signed up my oldest child for Tee-ball since Soccer is not working out so well…. And pretty much my baseball exposure relates to this scene in Sex and the City – of course – Carrie Bradshaw is EVERYTHING!

Ok so onto my Baseball Romance Reading List! I have only read the first book listed, but have already added the rest of the books to my TBR on Goodreads!

 

Now go sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” with some peanuts, ice cold beer and cracker jacks while you devour one of these steamy sport romances! Maybe even some version of this Beer Pong…
