W is for Walking




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

W - Walking
(Leah)


Radleigh and I spent a lot of time walking around different places in Cornwall. I took him to almost every cool tourist spot in the county, until I thought he might get sick of it.

He didn’t. The great thing about walking was that there were no other distractions. I mean, there was plenty to look at, and explore, but it was just us. Nobody interfering, nothing we had to rush back to. We had time.

I learned some things about when we both lived in L.A, but in Cornwall, while we walked I learned so much more. He told me about places he used to go when he was a kid, and promised to show me them when we went back to America. He told me about things he used to do with his dad, and stories of times they went on the road together. I learned that Radleigh’s family was important to him, much more than I realised, because he’d never talked about them much before. 

Mostly, I got to know the softer side of him. Of course, he’d kill me for saying he even had a softer side, but it was showing through more and more.

Today's teaser comes from the latest book in the Game On Series, Sidelined.
Blurb: At the age of twenty-one, Bree Collinson has more than she ever dreamed of. A handsome husband, a fancy house, and more shoes than Carrie Bradshaw and Imelda Marcos combined. But having everything handed to her isn’t the way Bree wants to live the rest of her life. When an idea to better herself pops into her head, she doesn’t expect her husband to question her, and keep her tied by her apron strings to the kitchen.

Isolated and unsure who to turn to, Bree finds herself falling back into a dangerous friendship, and developing feelings for the only person who really listens to her. Torn between her loyalty to her husband and her attraction to a man who has the perfect family she always wanted, she has some tough choices to make.

While Bree tries to figure out what she wants, a tragedy rocks the Westberg Warriors, triggering some dark memories, and pushing her to take a look at what’s really important.

  2. Walking is one of the best activities to share, especially in surroundings of beauty. This can bring souls together even without words shared.

  3. One of my favorite things in this world to do with my husband is take a walk down the beach with him. Now, we have three more hands to hold while we walk, but it's still my favorite thing to do with him with or without the kids.

  5. Never say soft side to a guy. We'll only deny it.

  6. I remember talking walks like this with my husband when we first got together. You do learn a lot about a person that way.
