Excerpt:

Two lycans were led forward next; they were small, clearly runts. While one stood tall and showed courage, the other looked as if she were going to faint any second.
 “Kill the left, take the right-.” that same cold voice ordered lazily.
Kill? She was certain she had misheard that. The verdict was unjust and asinine. Did they really expect the woman to be calm? The braver of the two screamed and cried for her twin, but inevitably was drug from the room.
Her sister remained calm now, as if resigned to her fate. She did not beg or fall apart as her executioner approached, and she didn’t flinch when her throat was slit right where she stood. The room was still silent as her body slumped to the floor and the gurgling noises died away. There were very few of them left at this point, and they huddled together as if being in a group would save them from the diabolical creatures playing judge and jury.

RBTL Tours: The Playmaker by Andrew Grey


Title: The Playmaker 

Author: Andrew Grey

Series: Currently a Standalone 
Genre: M/M Contemporary/Sports Romance/LBGTQ 
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Release Date: Nov 2016
Edition/Formats Available In: eBook & Print


Blurb/Synopsis:

Professional football player Hunter Davis is learning that saying he’s gay is very different from actively being in a relationship with another man—especially in the eyes of his teammates and fans. So when Hunter needs a personal assistant to keep him organized, he asks for a woman to prevent tongues from wagging.
Montgomery Willis badly needs to find work before he loses everything. There’s just one position at the agency where he applies, but the problem is, he’s not a woman. And he knows nothing about football. Still, Hunter gives him a chance, but only because Monty’s desperate.
Monty soon proves his worth by saving Hunter’s bacon on an important promotional shoot, and Hunter realizes he might have someone special working for him—in more ways than one. Monty’s feelings come to the surface during an outing in the park when Hunter decides to teach Monty a bit about the game, and pictures surface of them in some questionable positions. Hunter is reminded that knowing he’s gay and seeing evidence in the papers is very different for the other players, and he might have to choose between two loves: football and Monty.

Excerpt:

 So youd change me, Hunter said.
No. Im saying Id work with you to bring out your style.
Okay. Hunter clearly wasnt buying it. Do you cook?
Yeah.
What kind of food? Hunter demanded.
What do you like? I made fettuccine carbonara last night for dinner, I make killer pork chops, and Ive been told my chicken wings are to die for. But I bake them so they dont have all the fat. I make a mean cheesecake and cupcakes too.
What about vegan?
Are you vegan? He somehow doubted it, as big as Hunter was.
God, no.
Then why ask? Ill cook all the meat your football heart desires if youll give me a chance. He thought he might have earned a few points.
What about cleaning?
Im not a maid. Im your assistant. If you want me to find you a cleaning service, I can certainly do that.
Okay. Thats great, but you dont know football. Do you have any idea when preseason starts? Monty shook his head. Practice schedules? Do you have any idea about the demands on my time once practice starts? How about conditioning. Do you run?
Yeah. That I can do. Where do you need me to go for you? Monty realized hed misunderstood as soon as he saw the sneer.
I mean run as in exercise.
Oh. I used to run in school, Monty answered. Look, I may not be the kind of person youre looking for, but Ill do my very best for you if youll give me a chance. He was still trying to figure out what Hunter was looking for.
Hunter sighed. Fine, Ill give you a chance. I need you to put together my schedule for me. You can call Helen to get the things from my agent. Youll also need to contact my publicist as well as the coachs office and the team office. I also have a bunch of laundry upstairs that will need to be taken care of, and I have a team meeting sometime this week. Oh, and I have a lunch this afternoon, but I cant remember what time or with who. Its just some vague memory. So find out for me. I need a cleaning service, so get on that, and Ill need someone to open the pool and clean the hot tub. Its smelling funky.
Monty had grabbed a notebook in his bag and scribbled things down as Hunter had rattled them off.
