Here's my candidate for the week:

Boarded by Love by Toni Aleo
Publication Date: September 8th, 2014 
Series: Bellevue Bullies, 1
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance -- Sports

Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey’s in my blood and, not to sound full of myself, but I’m good at it... really good. The draft is within my reach—it’s mine to take—but that’s not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with woman. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words, I don’t do relationships above my family and friends. I’m happy with life. However, I should warn you that my story and how I see it playing out is about to change due to a certain redhead on campus.

She’s beautiful. Stunning. Breathtaking.
She’s my game changer.

He’s trouble from the moment I see him. I don’t know what I’m thinking, but from the moment I meet his gaze, I’m his. It’s a scary feeling.

I’ve never trusted anyone outside my aunt and uncle—and even that took months. I didn’t have it easy growing up. My mom was usually strung out, and she didn’t give me a second thought. Drugs and the men who paid her were most important. It was horrible, but I’m stronger today. Because of my past, security is what I need most. Money assures me that I can take care of myself today, tomorrow, and next month. I don’t want to ever be hungry or go without again, so I work hard for every penny.

Oh, by the way, I’m Claire Anderson. I’m a hard-studying sophomore at the University of Bellevue, dancer for the school team, and a burlesque 
dancer at a club, but that’s my secret.

You may think you know how our story ends, but you have no clue. It’s not easy falling in love, or living happily ever after. At first, it may seem so, but when is anything worth having ever won without a fight?

Especially, when you’re boarded by love.

You stole my cover. LOL! I guess that was bound to happen. Fair is fair, since I did steal the No Apologizes cover. ;D

The_Book_Queen said...

Hehe -- all is fair in L4C! :) We've went over this before; it just means we have really good taste!

Lover Of Romance said...

Nice pick for the week!! I really loved the blurb!! Hope you are enjoying the summer so far!!

The_Book_Queen said...

:) It's been pretty good so far, how about yours?

Sophia Rose said...

Adorable face and more than adorable for the rest. Can't say that he looks like a hockey player to me, but still nice. ;)

The_Book_Queen said...

Oh yeah I was thinking the same thing -- but then I don't watch much hockey, so how would I know? lol

Sophia Rose said...

Too slender, he'd get knocked around something awful on the ice. He's a cutie though so he'd at least make the uni look good.

The_Book_Queen said...

Oh yeah, and I'm sure that pretty face would be messed up something awful by the end of the game. Oh well, we need a little mancandy in our sports romance covers, right?

Sophia Rose said...

Agreed. ;)

Red Iza said...

Ah, who can resist tattoos ? Mine has got tattoos too :)

The_Book_Queen said...

Perhaps L4C should be "Sexy Tatt Sunday" instead. LOL. ;)

Anna@herding cats&burning soup said...

lol Tatts are a plus. Yum!

Fiza said...

Nice tatted hottie on the cover :) lol did we have a tats theme going on, mine has them too :3

The_Book_Queen said...

LOL. I'm telling you, 75% of the time L4C is really Sexy Tatt Sunday. ;) The rest of the time it's Sexy Abs Sunday. I don't think we're complaining though!
