All Lined Up by Cora Carmack Blog Tour

Hello readers! Long time no read! As my regular readers know, I just returned from an amazing week long cruise to the beautiful Yucatan Peninsula to celebrate my college graduation. As awesome as it was, it means I missed a whole week of blogging. Well, what better way to jump back in that to present to you all the OneGuysGuideToGoodReads Blog Tour stop for the newest novel by the absolutely amazing, fantastic, incredible, astonishing Miss Cora Carmack? Hope you guys are ready for some fun, here we go!

As many of you already know, I am a member of Cora Carmack's Rusk University Street Team and have been working alongside Cora and 24 other amazing bloggers (and Kelly... Hey Kelly :D) to promote this amazing first novel in Cora's new Rusk University series. I'm sure if you are reading this you already know a little about All Lined Up, considering this is the thirteenth and final day of the All Lined Up blog tour, but just in case you haven't, here's some info about ALU!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack follows up her trio of hits—Losing It, Faking It, and Finding It—with this thrilling first novel in an explosive series bursting with the Texas flavor, edge, and steamy romance of Friday Night Lights.

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.

Sounds amazing right? Well it definitely is. You guys can check out a whole bunch more information about ALU from the links on my side bar right over here>>>>>>> 

For any of you guy's who aren't familiar with my friend, and our amazing author, Cora Carmack, here's some information about the amazing Cora! 

Cora Carmack is a twenty-something writer who likes to write about twenty-something characters. She's done a multitude of things in her life-- boring jobs (like working retail), Fun jobs (like working in a theatre), stressful jobs (like teaching), and dream jobs (like writing). She enjoys placing her characters in the most awkward situations possible, and then trying to help them get a boyfriend out of it. Awkward people need love, too. Her first book, LOSING IT, is a New York Times and USA Today bestseller.

Well, if any of you guys have been keeping up with the amazing work the Street Team has been doing, you would know all about the amazing tradition we created in the form of Rusk University #FootballFriday! Each week we selected one of six main characters from All Lined Up and wrote all about that character, giving some amazing insight to our thoughts on All Lined Up, as well as some absolutely amazing graphics! Here's the link to all six of my #FootballFriday posts, I invite you to check them out and learn more about the cast of All Lined Up before getting started with your own copy! 


In addition to all the ALU info we put into our Football Friday posts, I would just like to add that I liked everything about All Lined Up and, in my opinion, it is definitely Cora's best work to date. This book is so easy to relate to in the sense of the college experience, and above all else: it appeals to guy readers as well as the females. Unlike many other New Adult novels, this book is not fueled by sex/sexual tension. Cora has given us a great novel about the freshman experience of college, colored with football, partying, and a HEALTHY romance thrown in that is sure to impress anyone! The cast of characters is great, and the storyline sets us up for several more Rusk U novels in the future! I don't say this often, but All Lined Up is a very special novel and I invite you all to check it out, I promise you won't be disappointed.
