Today's post topic: ALL ABOUT ALL BROKE DOWN

This is going to be a little different from previous Football Fridays. Each week I will be featuring info about the book (info that I have been granted permission to release by Miss Carmack)! I can't/won't spoil this awesome read for you guys, but I promise by the time October 28th comes along, you will be ITCHING to get your own copy! Here we go with ALL THE INFO about All Broke Down!

Before we get started here with all things All Broke Down, if you haven't read or aren't familiar with book one of the series (All Lined Up), head over to my blog tour and review by clicking here! Hopefully you're already in the know about the Rusk University series so I'll just jump right in and give you guys a little info in the form of the official synopsis for All Broke Down!

Check out the cover and synopsis and then some info about the AMAZING Cora Carmack!

In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack’s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can’t only fight for what you believe in . . . sometimes you have to fight for what you love

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and infuriating, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

Alright, now that you guys have seen that awesome cover, take yourself a minute to calm down, I know the excitement can be a little much! Now take a minute to learn a little bit about our amazing author, my great friend, and fearless leader of the Carmcats, Miss Cora Carmack:

Cora Carmack

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, was a New York Times and USA Today bestseller.
