Hot Jocks In July Blog Hop


I'm giving away a copy of Striker!

So if you've seen my past blog posts, you know I'm a lover of hot men with wicked skills on the pitch. Strikers, sweepers, stoppers, keepers...

There is no hotter summer fun than taking in an MLS game. the guys are aggressive and game is fast. The crowds are loud and the excitement is addicting. And we haven’t even talked about those hard calves, long sinewy thighs, muscular arms, and corded abs. Forwards sprinting down the field, intricate footwork, scoring by the strikers and impossible saves by the keepers. Not sure what a striker, sweeper, stopper or keeper is? Here are the basics.


Striker – A team’s power scorer.

Forwards – Players who score goals – the power scorers are called Strikers

Midfielders – players between the forwards and the fullbacks

Stoppers – The stopper is good at stopping attacks. The stopper is strong and tough and helps defenders mark the opposing teams striker.

Fullbacks – defenders closest to their goal

Sweepers – Sweepers are aggressive defenders. The sweeper stops breakaways and “sweeps” the ball, clearing with long kicks.

Goalkeeper “keeper” – defends the goal



Do you have a favorite sport? A favorite player?

I'm a total baseball nut. I watch my Rangers every day, but I also love football and I'm looking forward to that season starting in a few weeks. It would be way too tough for me to pick a favorite player. I love all the Rangers & Cowboys! :)

I'm a total hockey fanatic. My favorite player is Torrey Mitchell, and I'm completely heartbroken that he'll be playing with the Minnesota Wild next year and not my beloved San Jose Sharks. Sigh. Anyway, I've heard wonderful things about STRIKER, so please count me in!

It's funny, I don't really have a favorite sport or anything, but I do enjoy reading about athletes :D Maybe it's because in a book you actually get to know the character behind the sexy guy.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Blogger's been giving me trouble off and on this week, so I apologize in advance if this is a double post! I've been dying to read STRIKER, though my favorite sport is hockey. (Torrey Mitchell is my favorite player, and right now I'm heartbroken that he'll be playing for Minnesota next year instead of San Jose. I haven't gone to see the San Jose MLS team play, oddly enough.) I'm also looking forward to seeing Ryan Lochte swim in the Olympics!
