[Release Blitz + Giveaway] On the DL by Laramie Briscoe

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!

5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, second-chances, and heartbreak.

This is Malone and Slater’s story. Slater was on top of his game until he got injured. Now he is home and rehabbing that injury. He is spending time with his family and reconnecting with old friends. What he never expected was to see Malone again. She is his one that got away. Malone is back in town which she never thought she would do. She is trying to find herself after a truly terrible year. When she sees Slater, she is stunned. The feelings are still there but she came to find herself not get involved. Will she be able to resist the pull? Or was Slater what she really needed all along? 

I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I highly recommend this book.

5 Stars from Brianna!

Laramie Briscoe has got a way with her words when it comes to a contemporary romance novel. She slays every single time with her journeys and makes my heart flutter with her swoony characters. I'll be honest, the Moonshine Taskforce series is what really won me over with her. (highly recommend y'all!!) but this new duet? Absolutely brilliant and I just can't get enough of Malone and Slater.

On the DL is the first of two books in the MVP duet, dropping two characters you won't soon forget- thank goodness there's two books (cliffy warning!!) with one love story you won't want to end. 

He's home rehabbing an injury. She's home trying to find herself after a tough year. You know the one that got away? The one you had dreams with in high school only to have it all ripped away? Well that was them. And yet the moment they see each other again, they know it's going to be life changing. And as they reconnect... old and new feelings emerge. But life's complicated now... but maybe, just maybe this time it's worth giving their everything?

All of the feels and a ton heart and heat and splashes of angst, I loved every moment these two gave me.. and gosh I can't wait to dive in to the next book to see how everything works out between them.

Grab this now if you don't like cliffys and wait for the next.. because Malone and Slater have wayyyy more story to tell and a whole lot more heat to throw our way.

I highly recommend this book.
