On the DL - Release Blitz with Giveaway

Title: On the DL
Series: The MVP Duet #1
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Sports/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 20, 2018


A second-chance romance as scorching hot as a baseball diamond in August.

Slater "Savage" Harlow

Winning the MVP award for the Birmingham Bandits last year was the highlight of my baseball career. It was the culmination of childhood dreams, calculated adult decisions, sacrifice, and a hell of a lot of focus. Tearing my ACL in spring training? Not what I expected at all.

Now I'm home, in small town Georgia, rehabbing in the comfort of my own home, with people I know. I'm connecting with friends I haven't had time to talk to in years, spending days at home with my parents, and getting to watch my little brother play minor league baseball.

What I don't expect is to see Malone Fulcher walking into Del's Diner one morning while having my coffee and egg whites.

She's old flame, the one who got away, and the woman I compare all others to.

Malone Fulcher

Spending the summer in my hometown wasn't what I had planned, but it's what I need. Recovering from a hard year, both personally and professionally, I need to reconnect with who I am. When my mom encouraged me to come home and do some soul searching, I can't say no.

Memories are all over this small town, from the Baptist Church to the east field on my parents farm, to the diner. On my second day in town, I decide to go in, memories be damned.

I lost my breath as soon as I saw "Savage" Harlow sitting alone at a booth. Our eyes lock, my heart flutters, and my hands shake - all the same way they did back in high school. But back then we couldn't make it work. Going our separate ways to differing colleges, we decided we weren't meant to be.

A decade later, as soon as our eyes meet, I'm wondering if we were right, because those green eyes of his do nothing but take me to a past that I can see being my future.

Author's Note: This does end in somewhat of a cliffhanger!

Review by Barbara

Another great book/storyline from Laramie Briscoe. I can honestly say I love her books and writing style and On the DL did not disappointed. While it’s a little different from her other books, the storyline and characters will steal your heart and hold you close. 

The storyline revolves around two small town kids (Slater and Malone) who were high school sweethearts with big plans for their futures including marriage. But when the girl breaks both their hearts they go on to live their lives, separately. She follows her dreams and becomes  a PR in California and he becomes a huge Pro Baseball star.  When tragedy hits them both (10 years later) they return to their small town to recoup.  When these two hard-headed, stubborn people bump into one another, will they finally talk and listen to one another, and I mean really listen, or will they go through the motions once more. Can they really forget and forgive past mistakes now that they both have their own lives and careers? Has Fate thrown them together t0 give them a 2nd chance or to give them closure?    

 The storyline and the characters are very well written. You’ll feel like you are right there feeling all the love and heartbreak these two go through. You may  want to knock them in the head a time or two, or tell at least one of them to Get a Grip,  but their story is soooooo worth reading. Oh and you even get to catch up on Caleb and Ruby from the Moonshine Task Force series (after all Slater and Caleb were roommates in college). This is a phenomenal book that I Highly recommend reading. But be forewarned, the author will leave you hanging at the end.  But Luckily part two is only a couple weeks away and this reader just can’t wait.  2 Thumbs Up for a terrific book and storyline.

Review by Kathy

I've read this author's work before, having read the Moonshine Taskforce series, and I have to say...this book is a bit different...just a bit. I loved the storyline...small town kids get engaged before going to college, girl loves boy, boy loves girl; all sweet and gooey. But! Boy is looking at a career in the majors, girl needs to be sure that she isn't left in his shadow and wants something for herself. Girl breaks both their hearts. Ten years later, fate steps in and begins to pull these to together, again. They are adults now. Major League player, injured, returns home for rehab. Fired PR person, returns home to decide on her next move. A chance meeting begins to the road to forgiveness, and possibly a second chance at a future together. But, can the past really be put to rest? Will the same mistakes be made that cost them each other, once again? Well you won't find out at the end of this book because the author has dealt us the best cliffhanger I have read in a very, very long time! Do I like it..no. Do I admire it...a definite yes to that!

The characters are very well written and you will be come vested in not only their careers, but their personal lives as well. You can feel their struggle, professionally and well as personally. And right before you hit that wall of a cliffie...you will want to strangle one of them! These two are made for each other, but unless they straighten out a couple of things..Marlow's fears will come to pass and the ending will not be a good one. Fingers crossed!

I absolutely loved this book and I cannot wait to jump into the next one to see what will happen to these two. Oh, and it was great to see a couple of the characters from the Moonshine Task force in this book as well!!! Aaawwww Caleb and Ruby's wedding! 

I cannot recommend this book highly enough! Great job!
