Brand spankin' new from Regina Hart - SMOOTH PLAY! Check out the giveaway!


The second release in Regina Hart's Brooklyn Monarchs series is now available and I'm suggesting that you run, don't walk, to get your hands on a copy.  This series had an excellent beginning with FAST BREAK and will continue with a third release, although I don't recall the title or proposed release date.
About SMOOTH PLAY:
A passion for the game is what it takes to win. But off the court, it takes a different kind of savvy to heat things up. . .
He's part problem-solver and dream-maker. There's not a crisis he can't avert. And handling the NBA's most explosive team has put PR ace Troy Marshall at the top of his game. It also gives him a chance to give back to the community. But one determined reporter is messing with his flow. And he'll need way more than skill and charm to win this tempting one-on-one. . .
Andrea Benson's instincts tell her that something major is going on behind-the-scenes with this franchise. And a headline story is the only way she can regain the career and good name she let slip away. But Troy's sincerity is throwing her for an unexpected--and very seductive--loop. Can they trust each other enough to uncover the truth. . .or will too many secrets be their breaking point?
My thoughts:
This book focuses on slick PR rep Troy Marshall, determined to sidestep sports reporter Andrea Benson's head-on directness and keep any and all negativity surrounding the Monarchs under wraps. Andrea proves to be strongly determined to get what she wants. It isn't long before what Troy and Andrea want goes beyond the game of basketball and the truth behind issues plaguing the team may prove too much for the relationship they both long for.
Regina Hart, aka Patricia Sargeant, obviously pours her heart and soul into each and every book she writes. Her characters are incredibly realistic and setting descriptions draw you into every conversation and scene.
Interested?  You should be! Here's a link to Amazon so you can order your own copy!
In the meantime, I'm offering up a Kindle version of the first book in this series, FAST BREAK, to get your started.  I'll keep it simple, ok? Simply leave a comment and you'll be entered.  I'll let the giveaway run until this Friday, January 13th. No superstitions here - someone will be lucky on the 13th!

Here's a blurb for FAST BREAK:
It’s 24/7 money, fame, and game on-and off-the court. But the real action is behind the scenes in Regina Hart’s sizzling new pro b-ball series, where the stakes are everything and winning means playing for keeps…
He’s a two-time MVP and three-time championship winner. He lives to be the best. And now that he’s a first-time coach, DeMarcus Guinn will lead the NBA’s worst team to the top his way-or no way at all. But the team’s fiery franchise owner, Jaclyn Jones, is fighting him at every turn. And their unexpectedly seductive one-on-one is the kind of game time he can’t resist…
Turning her family’s team into winners is Jaclyn’s only hope of saving them and her community. She’s used to being in control, but DeMarcus’ determination-and the way he makes her feel-are like no moves she’s ever seen. And with everything they care about on the line, they’ll have to play to win … or lose their hearts.
Huge thanks to Regina/Patricia for allowing me an early look at SMOOTH PLAY - I hope you'll all check out this wonderfully talented author!

Wouldn't mind reading this series whatsoever! I have two backlist books of hers I've started reading one of and simply love it so far and looking forward to reading the other after it, but have yet to get the Monarch series to put in my TBR stack! LOL
