15 Of My Favorite Sports Romances

Tuesday, September 26, 2017


I am linking up today at The Broke and the Bookish's link up "Top Ten Tuesday".  They have a different topic every week and it's a lot of fun to meet some new bloggers and find a bunch of new books to add to my list!  This week's topic is: Ten Books that Feature Characters ____ (ex: mental illness, characters who play sports, certain jobs, etc).


I've mentioned on my blog before that I'm a pretty big fan of sports romances.  I am a pretty big sports nut, so when you combine sports and romance together, I am happy as can be.  Who doesn't love a strong alpha male type??  I've been going through some major hockey withdrawal, so I had a lot of fun making this list.  Hockey romances are my absolute favorite.


Him by Sarina Bowen (hockey) - 5 stars
Off Limits by Kelly Jamieson (hockey) - 5 stars

Lucky by Carina Adams (football) - 5 stars
Strong Side by Alison Hendricks (football) - 4 stars

Ryker by Sawyer Bennett (hockey) - 4 stars
Penalty Play by Lynda Aicher (hockey) - 4 stars


Have you read any of these?
What's your favorite sports romance?

  1. Oh you picked some good ones! I loved Once Upon a Power Play as well. Another sports romance that I like is Caught by Clare James - the sport is a little different. ;) Great list, Julie!

    Have a wonderful week. =)

    1. I REALLY loved Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy. I've read it twice because I enjoyed it so much. It's an MM romance, if you enjoy those. If not, Irresistible You by Kate Meader is really great too! I enjoyed all of these on my list so much, I hope you enjoy them too!
