All Lined Up by Cora Carmack; Football Fridays: Meet Carson

Happy Friday! It's that fabulous time of the week when Cora shares another fantastic Football Fridays post. In case you've missed them, check them all out HERE. Each Friday leading up to the release of All Lined Up, Cora teases fans with excerpts from her pic and pics that inspired her characters. Today's post is all about CARSON! 

About the Book

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.

Now meet Carson. The following is from Cora's post here:

Here's what Cora says about Carson:

Carson is your all-American boy-next-door. He's Texas born-and-bred with just a little bit of country in him. His best feature is his charming smile (because hot Southern boys always have a charming smile). Dallas is pretty partial to his arms, too. You know, with him being a quarterback and all. 

Carson is focused and determined, and his number one goal? To be the starting quarterback for the Rusk University Football team. He puts in hours and hours of extra practice to make that happen, which is part of the reason why Dallas reacts like this when she sees him without his shirt on for the first time:

Here's a few of my favorite Carson lines from the book: 
I keep my eyes on my feet as he ask, "So, Daredevil, besides jumping off balconies, what other crazy things do you spend your time doing?"
"Hanging out in backyards with complete strangers, obviously." 
His blue eyes are practically twinkling when he nudges my shoulder and says, "I've had my hands up your skirt, Daredevil. I think that qualifies me as an acquaintance at least." 

"You're it for me. So run if you'd like, but I'll follow. You can try to hold me at arm's length, but I'll never stop trying to pull you close. Be scared if you must, but you're not going to lose me. Not unless your dad comes in and finds me here, then neither of us will have a choice. "

Cora goes on to say that Carson is a mix between Cade and Garrick. If we're fond of a Golden Boy or a British Boy, then we'll enjoy meeting this Country Boy! I am totally sold! I can not wait to meet this football hottie!
