Blurb:
I’ve had my eye on him since we were teenagers.
I even managed to kiss him once.
But once wasn’t enough.
He stars in every one of my dirty fantasies.
Now it’s time for my dreams to come true.
He’s smart, sexy, and gorgeous, and currently single.
When I hear he’s in a position to act as my caddie for a week,
I decide to bite the bullet and jump on him. I mean it.
Who am I kidding?
I have one week to blow his mind and other things too.
I can only hope my heart survives every one of our heated encounters and that he gets hooked before I do.
Powerless to stop him, I can only hope my heart isn’t another casualty of his fastball.

Blurb...

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace: he has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance.

Picture this: a dinner party at their perfect home, the conversation and wine flowing. They appear to be in their element while entertaining. And Grace's friends are eager to reciprocate with lunch the following week. Grace wants to go, but knows she never will. Her friends call—so why doesn't Grace ever answer the phone? And how can she cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim?

And why are there bars on one of the bedroom windows?

The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie??

My Review

There are a few reasons why I can't give this full marks. But mostly the book chilled me and had me eagerly turning the pages to find out how things would turn out. I'll probably be thinking about this one for a while.


I spent one day reading the hardback copy sent to me by the publishers. I’d briefly read the blurb in order to sign up to read it, but I’m not a blurb reader. I like to go in blind. Thankfully, by the time the book showed it, I didn’t quite remember what the book was about.

So I dived in. And within a day’s time, I’d read the entire book. This book doesn’t disappointment in entertainment value. It was worth the read for sure.

What was lacking? I think I needed more of what happened in the end. We see the stage set for events and then it skips to tell us the results. I needed more. I wanted that satisfaction of knowing more. Considering the POV, I know that is hard. But some authors on occasion will switch POV, thus giving us that extra. It’s hard to explain without spoilers. After the journey, I needed that little bit.

Otherwise, this was a spectacular read. I recommend it.

My NOT book boyfriend is Jack. (I went with Jamie as inspiration because I just finished the series the Fall and his character seems fitting.)

Fastball by A.M. Hargrove and Terri E. Laine

Release Date: September 22, 2016 Cover Design: Michele Catalano Creative Photography: Sara Eirew

FASTBALL_ebook_AMAZON sm.jpg

Synopsis:

USA TODAY BESTSELLING authors, Terri E. Laine and A.M. Hargrove bring a new full-length standalone, Contemporary Romance novel.
Our relationship starts off like a bad joke.
A gorgeous guy walks into a bar and says to me, “Do you want to F#ck?” and damn if I don’t say yes.
And that should have been it—the punch line.
We never should’ve seen each other again.
Only we do.
Turns out sex on a stick, Ryder Wilde, is more than an orgasm-giver. He’s a player. Not just any either. A Major League Baseball pitcher. And damn, I want to be his catcher.
Except he doesn’t want to play any games or follow my rules:
No relationships.
No falling in love.
Because he’s used to winning … and wants to claim me as his prize.
His mission is to own me, body and soul, no matter how much I push him away.
Powerless to stop him, I can only hope my heart isn’t another casualty of his fastball.

Single dad, Beckley Bridges, is sexy as hell. No, really, he’s the hottest thing since the sun was created. Honest to God, crack an egg on him and the thing will sizzle. So what’s the problem? He’s also a gigantic jerk. I hate the bastard. I try to avoid him at all costs. But for some reason, everywhere I go he seems to show up. Only the real issue is his daughter, English. She’s an adorable quirky first-grader who’s the sweetest thing since iced tea. And she’s one of my students but also the love of his life. So I have to deal with him on a professional level. It’s not easy. On a scale of easy to hard, dealing with Beckley Bridges is like nails screeching across a blackboard. But when English’s mother tries to gain custody after abandoning her on Beckley’s doorstep as an infant, he’ll do anything possible to keep English under his roof.
