GIVEAWAY: Off the Ice by Piper Vaughn & Avon Gale


Good morning, y’all!

Today, we’ve got an exciting post–a kind that I’ve not really done before and I’m kind of nervous and also excited!

See, I’ve done giveaways on here before (one of which flopped hard), but I’ve never done one for physical copies of a book. However, when Piper Vaughn and Avon Gale asked me if I would be willing to host a giveaway of some signed copies of their book OFF THE ICE [goodreads | amazon], how could I say no? I couldn’t!

And yes, you read that right: I have 3 SIGNED copies of the OTI paperback looking for a loving home! And the giveaway is international!

If you’ve had the book on your radar for a while and just haven’t been able to pick it up, or it’s newly brought to your attention, now’s the chance to try and grab a free copy! So, check out the blurb below, and if the book sounds like something you’re interested in, keep on scrolling for the Rafflecopter form!

Off-the-IceHe’s hot for teacher

NHL star Tristan Holt may be at the top of his game, but he’s already thinking one play ahead. Hitting the books in the off-season means he’ll have a business degree to fall back on when it’s time to hang up his hockey skates.

But his straightforward plan is complicated by his undeniable attraction to his sexy sociology professor, Sebastian Cruz.

Impressed by Tristan’s brain as well as his brawn, Sebastian can’t help lusting after the gorgeous jock. With tenure on the line, Sebastian won’t break the rules by becoming involved with one of his students—at least, not until the end of term. Once final grades are posted, though, their naughty mutual fantasies can become reality.

Tristan’s not sure he’s up for being the poster boy for openly gay hockey players, but Sebastian’s never been the type of man to keep his sexuality—or his relationships—in the closet. For Tristan, being with Sebastian might mean risking more than just his heart.

    1. Forgot to add my suggestion for a diverse sports romance! I just recently read “Crossing the Touchline” by Jay Hogan and LOVED IT. Loved the romance and technical rugby info as well as the Aussie/NZ slang. Read it! 🙂
