L is for Love

My A-Z Theme is based on my books, the Game On series. You won’t need to have read them to follow this story, since it’s slightly removed from the full plot, like a side story. What it will do is give you a glimpse into my characters, and a chance to get to know them a little bit, PLUS, during the story, you will get a mini tour of parts of the UK! The posts will come from two of my main characters, Leah Walker and Radleigh McCoy. If this is your first time here, please start at the letter A. :D

 L - Love (Radleigh) 

Before Leah, I hadn’t been in love for a long time. The woman I was with before put me off getting serious with anyone else. Didn’t seem worth the hassle. I was pretty happy hopping in and out of bed with women I’d never see again. Sex without any commitment.

I didn’t know how different Leah would be when I first met her. I assumed she’d be like all the others; a quick lay, then telling everyone how badly I treated her, even though I never promised anything more than what I gave her. Things between us never went that way. Not even the quick lay part. She fought me every step of the way. She called me out on my bullshit, and didn’t let me get away with anything.

She’s sexy as hell, but that’s not why I fell in love with her. Nobody ever fought for me the way she did. Nobody ever took the time to look beyond what I wanted people to see. But she appeared in my life and pushed her way in. I don’t think she even knew she was doing it. I was a mystery she wanted to solve, and when she’d put all the pieces together, we both ended up where we never expected to be. We fell in love.

Blurb: After a successful first soccer season in L.A, Jesse Shaw heads to London with his best buddy, Hunter, but his world is turned upside down when a dangerous prank threatens his career and his blossoming relationship with Hunter’s cousin, Isabelle.

Isabelle Mills lives in Notting Hill with her parents and her twin sister, Georgia. When she finds out her cousin is coming to stay, along with his famous soccer player friend, her first instinct is to hibernate until they’ve gone. However, once she meets Jesse, everything changes. He’s everything she ever wanted, but with so many obstacles in their path, can she really risk putting her heart on the line?
