Today I am so pleased to welcome Lane Hayes to Joyfully Jay. Lane has come to share an exclusive cover reveal from her upcoming release, Out in the Offense. She has also brought along a great giveaway. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!
Thanks so much for letting me swing by to reveal the cover of Out in the Offense! This is Book 3 in my Out in College series. Each book features a sports theme, and because I’m a huge football fan, I had to write at least one story about a quarterback. Christian is a closeted athlete and captain of his team at a small private college. When a failing statistics grade jeopardizes his chance to graduate on time, he needs help…fast. But Rory isn’t the tutor he expected, but the tattooed bad boy with a big brain challenges Christian to be braver than he thought possible. Maybe even brave enough to come out on offense.
Take a peek at the blurb for Out in the Offense! And be sure to check out the first two books in the series; Out in the Deep and Out in the End Zone.
Out in the Offense will be released January 10. Mark your calendars!
Happy Reading! Lane Hayes xo
Christian Rafferty is a talented quarterback with a big secret. He’s determined to make the most of his final season on the football field, and if possible, avoid any confrontations with his conservative parents about his future. It shouldn’t be difficult; he’s become adept at keeping his public and private lives separate. However, when a math class threatens to derail his plans to graduate on time, he realizes he may need outside help.
Rory Kirkland has a reputation for being a tough guy. He’s a former wrestler and recent college graduate who needs a real job. Until he finds one, tutoring is a decent temporary gig. Luckily, his brain is his biggest asset. Rory is a genius. He credits his sport for helping him deal with angst and rumors about his sexuality when he was younger, but he doesn’t care what other think anymore. He likes his new status as an out and proud bi man; and he recognizes something of himself in Christian. But Rory didn’t count on falling for him. When an unlikely friendship collides with intense attraction, both men begin to realize that coming out on offense might be the surest path to love.
Lane Hayes is grateful to finally be doing what she loves best. It’s no secret Lane loves a good romance novel. An avid reader from an early age, she has always been drawn to well-told love story with beautifully written characters. These days she prefers the leading roles to both be men. Lane discovered the M/M genre a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Her debut novel was a 2013 Rainbow Award finalist and subsequent books have received Honorable Mentions, and won First Prize in the 2016 and 2017 Rainbow Awards. She loves red wine, chocolate and travel (in no particular order). Lane lives in Southern California with her amazing husband in a newly empty nest.
