The Synopsis & My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘DOUBLE COVERAGE’ (Love and Sports Series book #2):
***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Love and Sports Series.***
I was thrilled to be invited to read and review the ARC early-copy of the second novel of the ‘Love and Sports Series’ by Meghan Quinn titled ‘Double Coverage’ because I loved the first novel so much. First off I have to say the end of this novel left me saying, “Wow, just wow!” This story definitely takes you on a whirlwind of emotions because of the roller coaster these characters go on while dealing with feelings and the relationships they are involved in. As with the first novel, you will also get this story in multiple P.O.V’s, eight P.O.V.’s to be exact from: Piper, Mason, Lexi, Jake, Jax, Ryker, Hannah and Brooke.
On a flight to see her long time friend Lexi’s special day, red-haired beauty Piper Shores, had no clue how an obnoxious hot guy she meets on the flight would become more than she expected. After an eventful weekend of wedded bliss and new acquaintances, Piper gets back to her life as a waitress at a local Denver sports bar with her co-worker and friend Hannah. She becomes intertwined in an unexpected relationship with a sweet-loving southern guy named Jax, who she starts to fall for quickly. But Mason, with his alpha-male persona, seems to make her feel strong confusing emotions and won’t stop pursuing her once he realized that she makes him feel alive again.
Mason is Jake’s best friend and a professional football player in Denver. He met a female who was dressed with a hoodie and sun-shades, on his flight to be the best man in a wedding. After meeting Piper, he comes to the conclusion that she is rude but one sexy woman. Mason likes how Piper seems to make him feel alive again after having had his heart ripped out by his ex-fiance Brooke. Even though it takes him a little time to finally realize that Piper is who he wants, he has to deal with the fact that he might not be able to completely have her. But the one thing about Mason, is that he is determined to make Piper his.
Then, you have Hannah, Piper’s co-worker and friend. She’s sweet, nice and a good-girl who is dating a guy who she sees when he’s not away for business. Once she meets Ryker, Masons teammate and friend, he begins to never stop letting Hannah know that he’s interested in her. She is determined to wait faithfully for her boyfriend Todd, for the day that he’ll propose to her. Ryker on the other hand, is determined to make Hannah see that she should be his and until then, he offers her friendship.
In ‘Double Coverage’ you’ll get a chance to get to know all of the characters well. We get to experience the relationships as they blossom and we witness some as they are destroyed. As the reader, you’ll sometimes feel at odds about which people belong together. These characters seem so realistic because of their imperfections, their emotional turmoil and the choices they make while trying to figure out what they truly want. And let me warn you…there are many moments of hot interactions, filled with body on body, steaminess that will leave you breathless and make your toes curl.
Will Piper stay with her safe and sweet boyfriend Jax or will she follow her strong feelings for the hot-alpha-male Mason? Can Hannah stay happy waiting for Todd or will Ryker’s persistence pay off and win Hannah over? Find out where Brooke and a hot model named Ashlin fit into the equation. I recommend this book because it’s from a great new series and the characters of the the story keep you interested in seeing where the story will take each of them. Check this one out for sure. 🙂
This novel is from the New Adult category and you’ll find that there are some scenes of a sexual nature.

How I imagined the characters while reading ‘DOUBLE COVERAGE’:
‘DOUBLE COVERAGE’ Teasers:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘DOUBLE COVERAGE’★★★
Piper’s thoughts on Mason: And those eyes, she knew she just passed them off as brown, but they were more than that. They had character in them, charm and kindness when he was caught off guard. His eyes spoke words, words that, for some odd reason, hit Piper in the heart.
Piper’s thoughts: Mason was a very impressive alpha male. Unfortunately, he was way too alpha for her. She already had to deal with an alpha male, her dad, most of her life, dictating her life. She didn’t need to get involved with one romantically, no matter how attractive he was or how much her body ached for the man’s touch.
Ryker and Mason: “Jesus, she was amazing.”-(Ryker)
Mason cocked an eyebrow at Ryker as if he was crazy. “Dude, you said two words to her.”-(Mason)
“It’s love at first sight. She will be my wife one day,” Ryker said with a cocky grin, while staring at Hannah’s retreat.
Mason and Jake: “How do you suggest I go after someone who thinks more highly of a rotten carcass on the side of the road than me?”-(Mason)
“First things first, stop being an ass to her.”-(Jake)
“Then, bring out the charm. Bring back the old Mason.”
“Easier said than done, man.”
Jax’s thoughts on Piper: He wanted to make sure the girl in his arms remembered who she belonged to. From now on, Piper was his; he had marked her and he was going to make sure it stayed that way.
Piper and Mason: “What are you doing here?” she asked, while her heart pounded uncontrollably.
“I realized I left with the wrong woman.”
“Don’t Piper, please don’t. Just…just hang out with me.”
Piper’s thoughts: She couldn’t fathom not being with either of them. Jax was sweet, caring and the perfect man any woman would want to be with. Mason was intense, demanding and irresistible. He was a challenge. They were different, but both very loving in their own way.
