Interview with Iris Blobel

Why did you write this book?
“I think I Love You” is the 3rd in the Australian Sports Stars Series. I started with Tyson (the AFL player in “Love Will Find You”) and fell in love with his friends Oliver and Markus that I decided to dedicate them a book as well. I decided for Markus to be a soccer player, not only because of my German background, but I started jotting down ideas during the World Cup last year, which Germany won J
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love Romance, but I generally read across the genre, except historical novels and erotica.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Jack Reacher …love him!
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m currently working on another series which is set in a small coastal town called Fermosa Bay. Connor, who’s lived most of his life in London, returns to his place of birth and discovers there are many things about his past he isn’t aware of … or he hasn’t been told of. It’s fun to write. Quirky characters, laid back, and very Australian!
Please tell us about your latest book.
Markus DeLeon and Sarah Winter’s lives couldn’t be more different…
After three years away as the goalkeeper for an English soccer club, Markus has been happy to be back in Australia. He’d missed his family and friends, including Sarah. He’s known her since childhood, and often protected her from the teasing of other children and the troubling consequences of a broken home.
When they attend their friends’ wedding, a new light is cast on their friendship…
Sarah is fresh out of a bad relationship, and Markus has always been the one she can confide in. Maybe it’s the magic of the wedding—or how stunning he looks in a tux—but the attraction between them intensifies in ways they’d never imagined.
But sometimes when risking what you have, you might lose everything…
Following a passionate encounter, Markus isn’t sure how to handle this new aspect of his relationship with Sarah, and literally flees the scene for the coast. Sarah is unsure how to react to his sudden departure, but is soon knocked off course by misunderstandings and a frightening family emergency.
Markus realises his mistake and wants to make things right, but he also faces obstacles. He’s been offered an exciting new job, and an attractive newcomer to the neighbourhood is eager to claim his attention, though the last thing Markus needs is another confusing relationship.
Can Sarah and Markus face the fear and doubt—and the potential loss of their lifelong friendship—to give their love a chance?
