AusRom Today chat with the Saints Team author, Ally Adams.
What inspired this book?
I once worked for a national sporting club and I was also a WAG (player’s wife/girlfriend) for a few years. So I got to see behind the scenes and I decided to capture some of that fun into the Saints team series.
Who are the main characters and why will we love them?
Ah, you may not love Lucas to begin with, but hang in there ladies, he is redeemable. Lucas Ainswright is the modern day David Beckham… hellishly successful, tall, blond, rich, fit and in demand on the sporting field. But he’s had a hard childhood and a troublesome past which threatens his future. Physical therapy student Mia Carter is assigned to be Lucas’s minder. Her heart is in the right place, but she doesn’t put up with his bad behaviour. I’m hoping you will love them both by the end of Team Lucas.
What’s coming up next for you?
I have book three in the Saints series coming out in September—Team Niklas which tells the story of Niklas, the gorgeous German soccer star and the sassy woman he falls in love with. I’m possibly starting the fourth and final book in the series if my publisher, Atlas Productions, kicks me into gear.
Team Lucas synopsis
“Lucas Ainswright won’t even remember my name in a month’s time—but one occasional smile or a look from those searching eyes makes me want to dissect him and put him together again.”
Mia Carter never thought getting suspended from her part-time job for having attitude could be the best thing to ever happen … maybe.
When Lucas Ainswright—one of the world’s biggest sporting stars—needs a minder, it just so happens that attitude is what is needed to keep Lucas in line.
Now Mia’s job is to manage the sporting world’s bad boy and keep him at the top of his game for the season. Game on!
