Release Blitz, Excerpt & Giveaway:
Center Court by Brooke Edwards

Book 1

Order of Play, Book 1

The world of men’s professional tennis has been ruled by the same six men for more than a decade. There have been a handful of shock upsets and victories snatched by underdogs, but they’re few and far between. Now, the next generation are done being denied and have come knocking.

When the time comes, Soren Norgaard knows that the world expects him to lead the charge and take his place at the top of his sport. He’s focused and lethal on the court, until he isn’t. Sometimes the past, no matter how comfortable and familiar, doesn’t fit anymore and needs to be left behind. Soren’s past doesn’t want to let him go, but his future is coming fast whether he’s ready or not.

Elias Engström has been in love with Soren for as long as he has known him. The race for titles, for glory and their day in the spotlight has always been less all-consuming because he knows that there is an entire life stretching out when he leaves the court for the last time. A life that, for the first time, might include Soren in the way Elias wants him. Everything he wants is within reach, if Elias is willing to fight for it.

Special Release Excerpt:

Elias steals into the locker room before Soren’s match against Tyrone Ioannou.

It’s a long-standing tradition before finals. He’d done the same at Indian-Wells and Miami too, and Soren had done the same before Elias had gone onto court in pursuit of the Paris Masters title the previous season.

Some small part of him thinks that without it—the lingering embrace and Soren’s bright, laughing face in his mind’s eye as he walked the tunnel and onto the court to face Tiago Castillo—he never would have won.

He hopes he can give Soren the same.

Soren looks up when Elias slips through the door and pushes away from the wall.

Elias crosses the distance between them and pulls Soren to him, cradling the back of his head in one hand and breathing in deeply.

“You can do it,” he says against Soren’s ear, and holds him there for a heartbeat longer than he intends to. When he pulls back, Soren’s eyes are intent upon him.

He smiles and taps the underside of Soren’s chin with the back of his knuckles.

“Go and show him that you are to be feared, solstråle.”

Soren nods, his face still serious. “I will,” he says and tilts his head to the side.

He studies Elias for a long, weighted moment, and then his lips curl up in the corners.

Elias takes a step back, and the cool air rushing between them is like a slap to the face. He blinks first, and his own smile tugs the corners of his mouth up.

“I cannot wait to see you lift that cup again,” he says honestly.

“I will not disappoint you.” Soren ducks his head and does a half-turn back and away from Elias.

Elias catches his hand, squeezing just once.

“You could never.” He drops Soren’s hand and steps back. “I will see you out there.”

Soren’s gaze on him is a weight that follows all the way into the stands and to the box.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
