Rock Fiction Coveting: Blitzing Emily by Julie Brannagh

Takes some digging to find this fits around here. Turns out the female lead is an opera singer; you’d think she’s an actress from that first line. Is that Rock Fiction? Well, hell. Before there was Elvis, there was opera. You decide.

All’s fair in Love and Football…

Emily Hamilton doesn’t trust men. She’s much more comfortable playing the romantic lead in front of a packed house onstage than in her own life. So when NFL star and alluring ladies’ man Brandon McKenna acts as her personal white knight, she has no illusions that he’ll stick around. However, a misunderstanding with the press throws them together in a fake engagement that yields unexpected (and breathtaking) benefits.

Every time Brandon calls her “Sugar,” Emily almost believes he’s playing for keeps—not just to score. Can she let down her defenses and get her own happily ever after?

This is the second in a series, and it looks like the series is about sports, not music. That’s okay. It’s good to see music creep into the rest of the world and not just live in our own little bubble of headbanging goodness.

The idea of a musician and an athlete… I know it’s not new. There’s a lot that’s the same between the two worlds, and even more when you’re talking opera instead of rock and roll. There’s a lot we don’t know about Emily’s life. Does she have a company she’s with, or is she like Placido Domingo and travel all over the world and perform for a wider audience? Until we know all that, we can’t compare.

Lots of questions, most of which begin around Emily. Inquiring minds. Hell, my mind.

Bring it.
