    A great balance of romance, story, wit and drama!

    Overall Rating: 4 stars Do I recommend it?: YES! Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Sports Romance POV: dual Writing: 4 stars. I’ve read books before from Julianna Keyes, and I’ve always enjoyed her writing style. She seems to be getting progressively stronger as a writer, and this book definitely proves that. Story/Plot: 4 stars. I really enjoyed the overall story and IMO it had a great balance of story, romance, wit and realistic drama. If you‘re a baseball fan, then this should be a win for you! I’m not really, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Characters: REALLY liked Grace’s character. She was vulnerable, yet strong and witty without being naïve, silly or bitchy. Tyler was believable and really likeable. There’s a nice story arc in here of seeing the 2 of them mature and develop in their relationship together, very well done! Emotions: Nice balance of emotions. Rooting for Grace, for the team, for Tyler, and ultimately for the 2 of them together. There’s some great banter, and no silly drama, just a nice development in their relationship. Flow/pacing: Perfect, 5 stars Steam: 4 stars, just a couple of well-placed love scenes, not overdone as some books seem to do. HEA: YES Will I read this author again? Definitely, and definitely recommend to all who enjoy contemporary romance!

    Sports Rom lovers with devour this book.

    Gwen Scott has been a fan of the Charleston Thrashers since she was a little girl. And getting a with them was supposed to be a dream. Turns out not everything is fairies and rainbows where her colleagues are concerned. With a head for numbers and stats, being stuck as an errand girl for the PR departments is the last thing she wanted but, the bills need paying so she's keeping at it. A few words uttered without constraint to the coach while on an errand brings her in to his focus and she finds herself advising him on media comments, players and strategies. And of course that also makes her get noticed by some of the players including bad boy Tyler Ashe, the team's shortstop. Even though neither of them are allowed to get involved and neither of them wants anything serious, they soon realise that nothing is as it seems and the best made plans usually fail.

    Cracking baseball romance with humour and heart

    Gwen Scott, rabid baseball fan has got a dream job in PR for her favourite team, the Charleston Thrashers. The only problem is her boss is super-scary, the Thrashers are having an appalling season, her colleagues loathe baseball and she has just been given a hospital pass to deliver the 'talking points' to Rax Stripper, the team's manager - a job that got the last person fired. Luckily Gwen's encyclopaedic knowledge of baseball allows her to make some better suggestions for comments to the press and suddenly she has an in to the team manager. Tyler Ashe was the star player for the Thrashers until his best friend went to jail, now he can't seem to get a break and everyone is blaming him for the team's poor performance, including the sassy new PR girl who doesn't pull her punches. Gwen can't believe her childhood pin-up Tyler Ashe is someone she gets to speak to on a regular basis, but she can't allow him to slide out of press conferences or duck his team commitments. As the season progresses teasing and banter turn into flirting and forbidden kisses. But with the team's reputation on the line, can Gwen and Tyler keep their budding romance a secret, especially when an old sex tape from eight years ago threatens to surface? I recently read another ARC of a sports romance and while I liked it I wasn't blown away, in fact I had almost completely forgotten the book within a few days. This was different, more nuanced characters, more plot, more baseball, more emotions, more heart. In the blurb at the back Julianna Keyes outs herself as a lifelong baseball fan and it really shows. This had everything, romance, bromance, suspense, humour, sport and I loved it. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    Love baseball and witty contemporaries?

    I've been not so casually checking in on Keyes once I realized it felt like forever since she's released a book. Today I cracked this book and barely stopped reading it. It's a workplace romance done sexy but with a decent amount of weight behind that risk. It's a 31 year old baseball player whose best friend is in prison and it makes him lonely and, well, he's evaluating. As a result, he's been withdrawn, depressed and standoffish (the book hints at this as past behavior, it's certainly not the Ty we wind up seeing--mostly). He's a nightmare in the press-non-compliant, skips out on interviews, etc. But he's also a franchise player. Enter Gwen, who on a whim of mourning for her beloved aunt, applied to work for their shared love, the Charleston Thrashers, and got the job in PR. She's low-level and pretty much hates it until her brain for baseball and communication catches the attention of the manager and her boss. I'm going to be really honest: It's CLEAR Julianna Keyes loves baseball. It's clear she knows her shit. It was even clear to me she'd either researched with players or played some (or both). The rich stadium atmosphere-used to such effect as to absolutely, positively remind me of all the things I adored about the field, being a spectator, and the game itself. And there's a lot of play-by-play on the field, which was well executed. What if you don't like baseball? There's still a lot to love here-from the team and club dynamic, to this lovely, developing romance, and a lot of moments that I laughed, (who doesn't hate Todd anyway?), and some that really made my eyes sting. But, if you don't like baseball -- it may be possible that it's too much baseball. There was some fumbling at the end-including the wrap up of some suspense light--and some wonderful, wonderful acts of love. 4.5 stars -- or so.
