It’s here! The cover and blurb for Out in the Offense is revealed! Check out this gorgeous new cover by Reese Dante for Book 3 in my Out in College series, coming January 10.OutInTheOffense-1400x2100

Out in the Offense is Book 3 in my new Out in Sports series set at a Southern California university. This one belongs to Christian and Rory and the sport…football! If you’ve read Out in the End Zone  you might remember that Christian is the quarterback and undisputed leader of the offense. He has a very big secret he’d like to keep at least until  graduation, but he has to pass statistics first. Math has always been Christians’s most dreaded school subject (I can relate!), but his new tutor makes things very interesting. Rory is tattooed bad boy slash former wrestler who happens to be a genius. When an unexpected friendship leads to something more, Christian realizes he has a lot to learn from the former wrestler about bravery, honesty and finding his own truth. Something tells him he can have it all if he finds the courage to come out on offense. Including love.

Out in the Offense will be released January 10. Be sure to mark your calendars and Goodreads pages! Also, Joyfully Jay is hosting the exclusive cover reveal today. Be sure to stop for a chance to win a $10 Amazon Gift Card!

Blurb for Out in the Offense by Lane Hayes:

Christian Rafferty is a talented quarterback with a big secret. He’s determined to make the most of his final season on the football field, and if possible, avoid any confrontations with his conservative parents about his future. It shouldn’t be difficult; he’s become adept at keeping his public and private lives separate. However, when a math class threatens to derail his plans to graduate on time, he realizes he may need outside help.

Rory Kirkland has a reputation for being a tough guy. He’s a former wrestler and recent college graduate who needs a real job. Until he finds one, tutoring is a decent temporary gig. Luckily, his brain is his biggest asset. Rory is a genius. He credits his sport for helping him deal with angst and rumors about his sexuality when he was younger, but he doesn’t care what others think anymore. He likes his new status as an out and proud bi man; and he recognizes something of himself in Christian. But Rory didn’t count on falling for him. When an unlikely friendship collides with intense attraction, both men begin to realize that coming out on offense just might be the surest path to love.
