Happy Sunday! I'm not sure how you all feel about Sundays, but for me it marks an end and a beginning, so it's always a bit overwhelming. It's the day I prepare for the week ahead, and today, after having such a busy week, I'm not feeling particularly motivated to get 'er done. Here's hoping the energizer bug swings by and zaps me into gear.
So, for a few weeks now we have been running the Race to 150 Giveaway. It's been slow going and we've extended it, but are still hopeful that three of our followers will soon be able to snatch up those prizes. If you haven't checked out the giveaway you can do so here. If you have already entered don't forget to stop by each day for an extra entry by spreading the word!

In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.
Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.
But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn't bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.
Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It's obliterated.
Dallas doesn't know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn't know that Dallas is his new coach's daughter.
And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.
