Overview

The Black Jack Gentlemen Series - Detroit's expansion soccer team

They play hard. And live harder.
A city and a sport with something to prove—Meet the men who take that challenge.


~~ Red Card - Black Jack Gentlemen Book 2 --
Free will makes us human.
Choice makes us individuals.
Love makes us unique.

Metin Sevim has it all. At the pinnacle of international soccer playing success, he has managed to craft a perfect world for himself along the way.

When fate strips him of free will and the ability to choose his own path, he retreats from everyone and everything, destroying his hard-won career in the process.

Dragged back from the brink by his desperate family, Metin reluctantly agrees to coach the Black Jack Gentlemen Detroit soccer team but remains debilitated by memories and loss. When a surprising friendship emerges, it renews his passion for life, providing much needed solace… and extreme complications.

A saga of family dynamics and gender politics that cuts across cultures and circumstance, Red Card illustrates the human capacity for forgiveness through the life of one man as he attempts to rebuild his shattered existence.

Meet the Author

Microbrewery owner, best-selling author, beer blogger and journalist, mom of three, and soccer fan, Liz lives in the great Midwest, in a major college town. She has decades of experience in sales and fund raising, plus an eight-year stint as a three-continent, ex-pat trailing spouse. While working as a successful Realtor, Liz made the leap into writing novels about the same time she agreed to take on marketing and sales for the Wolverine State Brewing Company.

Most days find her sweating inventory and sales figures for the brewery, unless she’s writing, editing or sweating promotional efforts for her latest publications.

Her early forays into the publishing world led to a groundbreaking fiction subgenre, “Romance for Real Life,” which has gained thousands of fans and followers interested less in the “HEA” and more in the “WHA” (“What Happens After?”). More recently she is garnering even more fans across genres with her latest novels, which are more “character-driven fiction,” while remaining very much “real life.”

With stories set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch, in successful real estate offices and many times in exotic locales like Istanbul, Turkey, her books are unique and told with a fresh voice. The Liz Crowe backlist has something for any reader seeking complex storylines with humor and complete casts of characters that will delight, frustrate, and linger in the imagination long after the book is finished.

If you are in the Ann Arbor area, be sure and stop into the Wolverine State Brewing Co. Tap Room—but don’t ask her for anything “like” a Bud Light, or risk serious injury.

    Another Liz Crowe winner! As always, it got me in the heart, especially with the not perfect characters in her book, finding redemption. While the second half of the book was not what I wanted to happen, it made total sense through to the end.  Definitely a must read,! Thank you, Liz, for always keeping my heart and mind going at lightening speed!

    Intense Read With Characters Put Through the Emotional Wringer

    As a big fan of sports-themed romances I thought I knew what to expect with Liz Crowe's Red Card but ended up with something unexpectedly intense that kept my emotions on a roller-coaster ride. This book was at times predictable, mostly at the start, but bodly went where I didn't expect a romance book to go late in the story which brought out drastically different sides to the characters. This is an unconventional romance that might very well upset some readers but I applaud Ms. Crowe for her daring.

    Metin is the hotshot Turkish soccer player who could have any woman he wants, and has had them. Before now they've always been of the superficial model-like variety which has become boring. His first meeting with the tall, athletic, and sturdy-looking Alicia intrigues him. He admires her spirit and love of soccer which she desperately wants to play in the big leagues. He's sexy, charming, and oozes confidence except in his dealings with her. Though she's not easy to win over, he's immensely attracted and sets out wholeheartedly to woo her in a whirlwind romance that is super steamy but very rocky. Just when things look to be perfect between them fate decides to intervene and changes the meaning of love and family forever.

    Alicia was raised by her sister ever since her mother died when she was very young. She's never been girly and devotes her life to soccer to the exclusion of all else. Wanting to play professionally has her angry and jealous of those male players who are making millions. Her initial meeting with Metin therefore is full of aggression which ultimately morphs into attraction and a relationship that's full of sexual tension, steamy interludes, and a lot of verbal warfare that's really HOT. All does not go perfectly though with a sister who's been burned by men in the past and who spars with Metin every step of the way. Alicia is torn by the caring yet judgmental nature of her sister Melanie and her love for Metin which leads to many heart-wrenching moments. Fate soon intervenes in their happiness and puts their wedding vows to the test.

    Melanie starts out as a completely bitter woman, one who I found hard to like. She seemed angry at the world but Metin's charming and caring nature finally won her over and they ultimately form a friendship that will come in handy when the going gets tough. Along with adults being put through the emotional wringer, there's also Melanie's teenage boys who are also experiencing hard times in a realistically gut-wrenching manner. From start to finish this is a difficult read with heart-wrenching moments amidst guilt, fear, and anger. Ms. Crowe beautifully balances the steamy interludes with the character's emotional journeys in a richly rewarding way that brings a tear to the eye at times. Characters from previous books make brief appearances which made for a homey feel to the author's book world and provided nice updates to these familiar characters. This is the second installment in the Black Jack Gentlemen series but can be easily read on its own but I'm now left waiting impatiently for the next installment, as will you after reading Red Card.

    Gut Wrenching!! Liz Crowe never fails to deliver. I have read every book Liz has written and I am a staunch Jack Gordon fan but Metin Sevim can give Jack a run for his money! 'Red Card' is a non stop thrill ride with a lot of tears in between. I was shocked and thrilled all at once. The love story and animal attraction between Metin & Alicia is so hot and special and Ayden only added to the family affair. Losing a spouse and losing a child all at once is any person's nightmare. Liz told this story so poignantly and with great care that it was impossible not to cheer for Metin and Mel in the end. The last chapter totally blew me away when Melanie walked into the baby's room. Never expected that ending. It was so beautiful and I cried buckets thru this book. Thought the loss of Blake did it for me but 'Red Card' was explosive and sweet and gut wrenching and every adjective available. Loved it so. This book will linger in my thoughts for a long time. Thanks Liz for another fabulous ride!
