Title: Pitch Please
Series: There’s No Crying in Baseball
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: September 8, 2017
Baseball is life, the rest is just details.
Everyone who’s played the game has heard those words a time or two. But Hancock has heard them his entire life from his parents. His family has lived and breathed baseball even before he started little league.
Hancock “Parts” Peters has a name that inspires grins across many faces, but the moment those faces get their first look at him, those grins slide away.
Hancock is gruff, filterless, and doesn’t give a crap who he offends. He is the only man in baseball who doesn’t care if he gets an endorsement or not. He’s there to play the game. He’s there to win. He’s there because baseball is his life.
People think he’s a jerk.
And maybe he is. But if that’s how he has to come off to get people to leave him the hell alone so he can play in peace, so be it. The less people he has to worry about offending, the better.
Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back.
Sway Coffman didn’t mean to rock the boat. She was just there to do her job.
Sure, she was a woman in a man’s world. Yes, she beat out several of those men to get the job as head athletic trainer for the professional baseball team, The Texas Lumberjacks. And yeah, she now got hate mail from those men.
But she’s good at her job, and she earned the position.
What she is not good at, however, is talking to men.
Men seem to see her curvy hips, large breasts and thick thighs and automatically think she is incompetent. Because surely a fat girl couldn’t get the job treating some of the most fit and athletic men in the world, right?
This fat girl got the job, and she is proud of it.
What else did she get?
The attention of the sexiest bearded man she’d ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.
It was enough to bring to her down to her knees…in front of that man, the hot and grumpy baseball player, Hancock Peters.
I love everything about a good sports book, especially when it has a lot of the sport in it. Another part that makes it even better is when the girl also knows about the sport, it makes everything so genuine! And that is what these characters were. Hancock and Sway were so genuine and unique!
First thing, of course, is their spark. We immediately know that Sway has always liked Hancock, but was also immediately see the spark between them. This is so important in a plot and Lani did it so well! Second, is how different Sway is. I love that she isn’t your normal female lead, she’s sassy and she’s a curvy girl. What is not to love?!?!? And we can all appreciate how Hancock likes those specific things about her. There is also quite a contrast between Sway and Hancock, it makes things so interesting.
I found myself really addicted to this book, I got it done almost in one shot too. Lani did so well in keeping me hooked, and I mean hooked, line, sinker! Her characters were real, unique and so interesting! Between that and the real emotions we felt while reading I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to read more of Lani’s work!
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
