Series on Saturday: Sports Romance @Kris10Callihan @JenSFred @SarinaBowen @HelenaHunting @ElleKennedy @kennedyrwrites #Giveaway

Posted February 8, 2020 by Anne - Books of My Heart in Giveaway, Series on Saturday / 16 Comments

This is a new feature I developed where each month we will look at our favorite – the best – series in a genre.

The genre here, by my definition,  is a series where the main character has a career in sports.  These are the ones which came to mind or which I enjoyed.  I haven’t read all of these series. KC has a broad knowledge of this genre and made several recommendations.

Since I haven’t read everything, it’s a subset of the possibilities.  I’m sure I am forgetting some great authors. There are also plenty of authors I have yet to read. Please share your favorites with me in the comments, also.

My favorite Sports Romances series are (in no particular order):


Game On                                                               Pucked                                      Off Campus , Briar U
by Kristen Callihan                                    by Helena Hunting                                by Elle Kennedy


Gridiron                                                              Hoops                        Brooklyn Bruisers, Ivy Years, Gravity
by Jen Frederick                                          by Kennedy Ryan                             by Sarina Bowen

  1. You know, I think the only sports romance series I’ve read is Chicago Stars by Susan Elizabeth Phillips and loved it. But, I’ve collected a few series and not yet started them (Chinooks Hockey Team by Rachel Gibson, Play by Play by Jaci Burton, Assassins by Toni Aleo, Fast Track by Erin McCarthy, etc.).

    Sarina Bowen’s series is one my favorites. Her characters are all likable and down to earth. Books have humor and great friendships as well as love relationships in a variety.

  3. I’ve got a few for this one: Him/Wags by Sarina Bowen (m/m hockey), Sweet Home by Tillie Cole (NA- football), Brooklyn Bruisers by Sarina Bowen (hockey), Chicago Rebels by Kate Meader (hockey), The Lone Stars by Katie Graykowski (football), Twin Hearts by AM Johnson (NA m/m swimming), Game On by Kristen Callihan (football), Cold Fury Hockey by Sawyer Bennett, Shattered Past by Cecy Robson (MMA), First to Fight by Jeannette Murray (boxing), Worth the Fight by Michele Mannon (MMA), In the Zone by Kate Willoughby (hockey), The Boys of Summer by Katie Rose (baseball), Red Hot Russians by Elizabeth Harmon (ice skating), Battered Hearts by Kele Moon (MMA), Fast Track by Erin McCarthy (auto racing), Men of the Show by Rhonda Shaw (baseball), London Legends by Kat Latham (rugby), Play by Play by Jaci Burton (variety of sports), and its not from a series but I loved Ride With Me by Ruthie Knox (cycling).

    I’ve actually got a few others that I’m pretty sure will be good on my TBR pile. This post reminds me that I need to get to those.

    • I loved Fast Track! Ride with Me is also a favorite. I actually wanted to do that ride and I did parts of it.

      There still seems to be an abundance of hockey and football books. Thanks so much for sharing so many options. I do this for fun and to highlight some great books/ authors.

  4. I loved the Him/Us series by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, and the other hockey books by Bowen are fantastic. Sawyer Bennett writes a good hockey romance. Victoria Denault has some great hockey romances. It seems like there are a lot more hockey romances than any other sport for some reason.

  5. I love a good sports romance! Sarina Bowen/Elle Kennedy’s Him duet is my absolute favorite. (Let’s hear it for hockey hotties!) But I also love Kennedy Ryan’s Hoops series (Long Shot was especially excellent), Cora Carmack’s Rusk University series, and what I’m read of Elle’s Off Campus series.

    I voted Off Campus because I did love that series. I also loved the Him/Us series by Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen. I read a menage football series back many years ago, but now I can’t recall who wrote it. Stephanie Julian writes a lot of great hockey books. Nalini Singh writes books with cricket players (but not a sports series).
