    My favourite sports romance is Tigers and Devils, because it was my first one and one of my first M/M romances as well

      That’s an excellent, classic choice! One of the first m/m sport romance I read too.

    I always enjoy reading anything that has to do with sports and romance. I don’t have a favorite.

    I’ve only recently started reading more sports based romances, but I enjoyed Avon Gale’s hockey series.

      Avon Gale is a master of the hockey romance. I’ve devoured the “Scoring Chances” series.

    I recently read “The Ongoing Reformation of Micah Johnson” by Sean Kennedy. Enjoyed the book a lot. I liked that the focus wasn’t on romance, but on the problems the protagonist faced in his everyday life. Made it very realistic.

    I don’t have a favorite sports romance, but I guess “Almost Like Being In Love” by Steve Kluger is close – it has baseball references, as well as musical theatre references, funny supporting characters, and a great romance.

    Tigers and Devils by Sean Kennedy comes to my mind when I think about sports romance books. And Caught Running by Madeleine Urban & Abigail Roux, thatโ€˜s another favorite of mine. I think there are a lot more that I loved very much, but these were the first I thought of.

    I second “Dance with Me” and “Scoring Chances”.. One of my favorite books about a sport is Helen Brenna’s “From the Outside:, a m/f Harlequin NASCAR romance. I am not a NASCAR fan, it was the relationship that I enjoyed.

    Since so many of my favorites are already mentioned, I’ll go for a more obscure favorite: Hunted By Liz Powell. It’s not linear, so it seems people love it or hate it.

    My first thought was “Caught Running,” a book that a couple of other commenters mentioned. Even though it has point of view violations (head-hopping), I was able to kind of block that out and enjoy the story.

    I also enjoyed “Dance with Me.” One of the protagonists is an ex-semi-pro football player, but the character interactions and the dancing seemed to take more of the focus. Some of the protagonists’ interactions are hilarious, as at first they find each other super-annoying, and then think, “Maybe he’s not so bad after all.”

    I’m looking forward to reading your jointly-written book. ๐Ÿ™‚
