Alright everyone, hope you're ready, because here is our second edition of our sophomore edition of Rusk University Football Friday!

Today's post topic: Meet Dylan Brenner

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.

Meet Dylan Brenner

Okay. Now you know all about All Broke Down, so what's different this time around? All Broke Down, as the synopsis says, tells the story of Silas Moore, the 'bad boy' of Rusk U! Silas was my absolute favorite part of ALU and actually was the inspiration behind most of my graphics and promotion, for example:
Pretty cool right? Imagine how excited I was when Cora announced that Silas would the the focus of book two? Yeah. THAT excited. In this novel, which I have had the amazing pleasure of already reading, Silas gets a step up and his story is great! I'll have a huge post all about Silas in a few weeks, but today we're talking about Silas' love interest and out other main character, Dylan Brenner!

Dylan Brenner is our female MC for All Broke Down, and in my opinion, one of the best female characters that Cora has written. Dylan is probably the closest girl that Cora has written that I would be attracted to. Why? Not only is she beautiful and smart, Dylan is also passionate. Passion is a very important trait to me, but it isn't passion in the romantic sense: Dylan "fights for causes". Dylan is passionate about helping the homeless, she is passionate about the environment, she is passionate about helping animals. What is there not to love? A hot girl with a heart of gold? Sign me up. Cora has definitely written me an amazing book girlfriend with this read. Dylan is everything you could want in a female heroine and then some. Seriously. She's funny, she's down to Earth, what more can I say? Dylan is the perfect fit for my boy Silas. She is patient, understanding, and gives great advice. She's got an amazing head on her shoulders and a great conscience to boot. Are you on #TeamDylan yet? I know I sure am!

So what does Dylan look like? Cora goes into pretty great detail to give us an image of what Dylan looks and sounds like in the novel, so instead of spoiling that for you, I'll just post a few pics that Cora has sent me of her inspiration for Dylan Brenner!

How's that for an awesome leading female?

Check out this graphic that one of my fellow Carmcats created for Dylan instead! She's one of my favorite Cora-females yet!

Excited? Think you know a little bit about Dylan now? I really think all you Cora fans will really like Dylan, she was a great character who was written very well! In true Cora style, she is strong, funny, and full of awkward! That's all I have for you guys on the topic of Dylan, but have you seen my GIVEAWAY?! Enter below! But first, enjoy this graphic I made promoting All Broke Down!
