So, you’ve stumbled upon these Unashamed Football Novels. The question has been asked though – why should I invest the time to read them?
First things first, if you love football, if you play yourself, or if you are in a family that plays or loves the game, you will definitely find this series entertaining. We have had feedback from readers just like you who have loved the books. The pace of the stories, the blend of off- and on-field action and the authenticity of the characters give these Unashamed Football Novels an instant attraction.
What has inspired the continuation of this series is the feedback from readers, some of whom are not big on football. A good read is a good read regardless of the subject matter. Not wanting to pigeonhole Jarrod Black, I’ve heard some great comments – a ‘fantastic holiday read’ or ‘I couldn’t put it down’ or even ‘a Mills and Boon for men’. What you’ll get is a storyline you can relate to and a writing style that takes you along effortlessly on the journey.
Jarrod Black is an Australian. He was born and grew up in the suburbs of Sydney, but his family has deep roots in the North East of England. When the opportunity arises to make the move to the UK, he is thrust into the world of the Football League. From there we see Jarrod flourish. Despite never yet reaching the top flight, there are key moments that chart the course of his life and career in England.
If that appeals to you, it’s not a massive investment to get your hands on a copy. The books are available through Amazon around the world, for example here is the link for the UK site. You’ll find a list of links further down…
I’m no prolific reader myself. The satisfaction and escapism I get from finishing a book though gives me almost a duty to write more football fiction, and you’ll find more from Texi Smith coming in the future. In fact, very soon…
