Love evens the score 

As general manager of the Las Vegas Slayers, Danica Blue goes toe-to-toe with players whose size is matched only by their egos. Quarterback Dex Harper is the biggest and toughest of them all, with a hell-raiser reputation that he insists he doesn’t deserve. And Danica, the good daughter who’s always played by the rules, is suddenly tempted to break every last one.

.

Football is the only thing Dex has ever been able to count on. To save his career he needs Danica’s PR savvy, and he’s happy to help her discover her inner bad girl in return. But glimpsing the real woman behind that sexy, flawless facade is making him realize how much is at stake. Because getting back on the team could mean losing Danica, unless he’s willing to risk it all—and play for keeps….

Welcome to CABR Lisa 🙂

How would you describe the story in MIDNIGHT PLAY using 10-20 words?

Discovery! Danica Blue discovers the joys naughtiness and unapologetically taking what she wants. Badass Dex Harper discovers the power of redemption.
.

.

This is book #2 in The Blue Dynasty series. Should they be read in order? Tell us about the series.

Each book is written to stand alone, but if you intend to read the series, definitely start with book #1, because it sets of a chain reaction that unfolds over the course of the next four books. Is there glamour and spice and sports? Yes! This is a gritty series, sexy and dark with an edge, but the underlying theme of hope in the wake of hell is an incredible reward that readers can count on at the end of each book.

What inspired the story in MP?

Danica Blue is the rule-maker of the Blue sisters, while the others are rule-breakers. In book #1, she appears perfect and doesn’t exactly have her sister’s back when trouble hits the fan. But there’s more to her than perfection. She’s a little bent, has baggage and kinks—and this is all revealed through the arc of her relationship with Dex Harper, the quarterback she fired. He reveals her imperfections while she tries to hide his from the public eye. The result is electric and hot and such a beautiful shade of dirty.

.

.

Did you struggle while writing a particular scene?

If yes, how did you deal with it? Oh, yes, yes, yes. I struggled writing Danica and Dex’s first mouth-to-mouth kiss. First kisses are a huge deal to Danica, so I knew her kiss with Dex had to be perfectly right for them. It would’ve been so effortless to get them to just go for it as early as chapter two, but they’re stubborn, difficult people. When they do kiss, it happens in a very sexy way and there’s an imported wooden table and an over-frosted cupcake involved. *Wink.*

When does Book #3 come out and who’s featured in it?

JUST FOR CHRISTMAS NIGHT releases on December 1. I’m crazy-excited about this book, which features the wild flirt of the Blue family, NFL publicist Martha. She meets her match in Joaquin Ryder, America’s sexiest boxer and a man with a hellish past that may shock some. Envelopes are pushed and boundaries crossed with this book, and the Christmas backdrop just makes me want to snuggle it!

Lisa Marie Perry pictureABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Lisa Marie Perry encounters difficult fictional men and women on a daily basis. She writes contemporary romance fiction with plenty of sizzle, energy and depth. Flawed, problematic, damaged characters are welcome. Her tales feature exciting multicultural mash-ups, sexy guy-next-door heroes and powerful larger-than-life alphas who are brought to their knees by the love of complicated women.

.

According to Lisa Marie, an imagination’s a terrible thing to ignore. So is a good cappuccino. After years of college, customer service gigs and a career in caregiving, she at last gave in to buying an espresso machine and writing to her imagination’s desire. She lives in America’s heartland and she has every intention of making the Colorado mountains her new stomping grounds. She drives a truck, enjoys indie rock, collects Medieval literature, watches too many comedies, has a not-so-secret love for lace and adores rugged men with a little bit of nerd.
