Blog Tour: Excerpt, Review, and Giveaway for Blindsided by Emma Hart

This is the first book in Emma Hart's new series featuring American Football players.  It's really quite good.  I have an excerpt to share with you all as well!


From Emma Hart, the New York Times bestselling author of the Game series, comes a brand new series where the game is realer, the tension is tighter, the sex is hotter, and the stakes are the highest of all…

Two people. Two agendas. Two games.

What happens when the out-there It-Boy of football meets the secret It-Girl of fashion?

As the daughter of Hollywood’s sweetheart, Leah Veronica can’t even buy a coffee without finding her face on a magazine stand, so it’s no wonder she’s launching her first fashion line in secret. With it debuting at New York Fashion Week in just under a month, extra time in the spotlight is the last thing she needs.

The son of the best quarterback the league has ever seen, filling legendary shoes as the L.A. Vipers’ quarterback was inevitable for Corey Jackson. So was meeting Leah Veronica—the first girl to hand him his ass without putting a hair out of place.

Getting the handsome, prickly blonde into his bed becomes his number one goal. But getting the sexy, over-confident footballer the hell away from her becomes Leah’s—at least until she realizes the best way to do that is to give him what he wants.

If only it was that simple.

When Corey discovers who she is, and private photos of Hollywood’s finest find their way online, everything they thought they knew is thrown into disarray.

And when secrets are exposed and hearts are shattered, they have to figure out if they’ve been blindsided by love or reality, and if it’s worth running the extra yard to win the game they never meant to play.


Leah saunters over to a free table, and my eyes drop to her ass. Damn. That dress really does hug it fucking incredibly. She coughs, drawing my eyes to her face, and half frowns, half smirks at me. I walk over to her, set my beer on the table, and hold my hands up.
“Babe, you wear a dress like that and you’re gonna get looked at. Don’t be blamin’ me for it.”
Her smirk swiftly changes to a full smile. “You’re the most honest asshole I’ve ever met in my life.”
“It’s one of my better qualities.”
“Of which there are few.”
“You don’t know a thing about me, Leah Veronica. For all you know, I have a thousand amazing things about me.”
She leans forward and rests her chin on her hand, her grin still in place. “Yet, equally, you could have even more bad things. Judging by what I know of you so far, letting me find out isn’t a risk you should take.”
“I love takin’ risks,” I murmur, tracing the shape of her lips with my eyes. “Especially when that risk is feisty and strong-willed.”
“Are you calling me a risk, Corey Jackson?”
“What if I am?”
“Then you should be aware that you’re never gonna get to take me—in any sense of the word.”

I pre-ordered this book after reading the first two chapters last week after they were posted on various blogs.  I was very excited to read the rest of the book and knew it'd be good, having read some of Emma Hart's books previously.  I wasn't surprised by how well written the book was, I just wished it was hotter.

The chemistry between Leah and Corey is great.  So is their emotional connection to one another.  I loved their banter and how they tried to one-up each other. I loved seeing them tease each other and just being around one another.  I was certainly expecting fireworks and earth shaking when the two finally did the deed, but the love scenes fizzled for me.  The build up was great, but the rest, not so much.  

I liked how the story was fresh and not with the typical cliches that come with having a sports star as your hero.  I also liked that Leah wasn't a celebrity wanna-be or hanger on and really wanted to do something and make a name for herself on her own.  She's definitely not like the typical celebrity offspring we often read and hear about.  

I loved both Leah and Corey's friends.  I'm hoping to see one or more of them pair off with each other.  Of course, I'm very excited to see how the series will progress regardless.  I started reading this the moment it arrived on my e-reader and I didn't stop until it was finished.  Of course, with a story like this, that's what's going to happen.
