    Fun addition to the series

    A fun addition to the Love Between the Bases series! Crush Taylor is the sexy silver fox owner of the Kilby Catfish and Wendy Trent is the very serious Mayor of Kilby. These two have had a love/hate relationship for a while now but the attraction that burns between them is about to spark a fire between them. Crush stumbles upon a young woman with an arm that could put some major leaguers to shame. He wants to see her playing in AAA ball. A place no woman has made it too. It happens to turn out that this girl is the daughter Wendy gave up for adoption long ago. As Teri and Wendy get to know each other and Crush works with Teri to get her ready to play minor league ball the dynamics in the relationship between Crush and Wendy begin to change. Will these two commitment phobes be willing to risk it all?? Don't miss this one. It's a great read and I definitely recommend it.

    A perfect game for Jennifer Bernard!

    Kilby Catfish Coach Crush Taylor receives a phone call saying he’s been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Although he’s very pleased, he doesn’t like all the hoopla that goes around that kind of thing. That evening he gets very drunk, and passes out on the baseball field, to wake up to a young woman throwing a baseball, and throwing amazingly well. Teri Dimitri is just passing in town, she’s looking for someone, and Crush offers to drive her. Teri is so good that Crush decides to polish her game, and he’s hoping that she be the first woman to make it to Triple A. Mayor Wendy Trent does everything she can not to tarnish her spotless public image, how will she handle the fact that Teri is her biological daughter? Wendy has always fought for women’s rights, and she makes Teri her personal crusade: she will help her daughter to achieve her dream however she can. Crush is a huge complication though, him being always around; he rattles Wendy and while they’ve exchanged too many barbs to mention along the years, she just can’t ignore the sexual sparks anymore. Jennifer Bernard sure packs a punch in the novella CRUSHING IT! Finally, Crush and Wendy acknowledge what Wendy had tried to ignore, as the Ice Queen burns up the sheets with the retired Playboy Pitcher! It’s great to see a real, sizzling romance between older adults: Wendy is 43, and Crush 51, and a fabulous romance it is as well; they’re both great characters, together and separately, and there are interesting turns to their romance. But the baseball story is phenomenal! Teri is just fabulous, and not stereotypical in the least. She sounds like a 21 year-old, she acts like one, she is passionate about the game; you cannot help to cheer her on. There is also a rather daring plot twist from Ms. Bernard. And we get to see a bit of the players from the team, and their banter has not mellowed. CRUSHING IT is another exceptional story by Jennifer Bernard, filled with vibrant baseball images, complex and engaging characters with terrific backstories, and sizzling sex scenes with two alpha personalities; the book is over before you know it. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    Crush has a crush!!

    Just when you thought baseball seasons was over, Jennifer Bernard has hit another home run out of the park with Crushing It. I have been wanting to have a story of Crush, owner of the Kilby Catfish and his secret crush of Mayor, Wendy Trent. Oh, the secret that Wendy has hid from everyone will finally bring Wendy and Crush closer together or tear them apart. A great book of romance, did I say hot! and plenty of baseball is the perfect read in the off season of baseball. Oh, how I love my romance and baseball. I highly recommend this book!!

    Crushing It

    Crushing It, by Jennifer Bernard, is the fourth book in her Love Between the Bases series and is a novella. The hero is Crush Taylor, owner of the Kilby Catfish, a triple A baseball team in Kilby, Texas. The heroine is Wendy Trent, the mayor of Kilby. Crush meets up with a young girl, Terri, who is throwing practice pitches at the local park. He sees that she has the talent and ability to make it to at least Triple A, if not higher, if he works with her and coaches her. Terri is looking for her birth mother who happens to be Mayor Wendy. Wendy has many secrets in her past, which she doesn’t want the town to know about. She tells people that Terri is a young relative who is visiting. Wendy is afraid of going public with her attraction to Crush which hurts him as he really care for her. He sees that there is more than the great sexual attraction between them. As he gets to know more of Wendy’s past, it seems he understands her better. Add in a freak out by Terri in her first Triple A debut as a backup pitcher, Wendy blaming Crush for pushing Terri too much, and Crush blaming himself before each of them can figure out where they belong in each other’s lives. This was a fun and entertaining story with likeable characters that you want to support and cheer on hoping for that happy ending. I loved the way Ms. Bernard brought humor and sexy into this story. The characters were well written and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I enjoyed reading this book and I highly recommend this book, and all others previously written by Jennifer Bernard to all readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    Fabulous Book!

    Crush Taylor knows how to push buttons. As a Major League pitcher, he tweaked many a batter he faced. And as a man with 3 ex-wives, he clearly hit the wrong buttons in romance. As the owner of a Minor League baseball team, Crush seems to excel as pissing off the media and hometown governing body with his attitude. And there was no governing body he enjoys more to rile up then Mayor Wendy Trent, former beauty queen, present-day ice queen. But when Crush gets a call that he’s made it to the Hall of Fame, Crush finds HIS button pushed. Sure he’s honored to get in, but as Crush finds himself getting reflective about his image and life, he is feeling quite unlike himself. What better way to get on track than indulge in his favorite pasttime of - yep - pushing Mayor Trent’s buttons! Crush Taylor and Mayor Wendy Trent have been secondary, yet important, characters in Ms. Bernard’s “Love Between the Bases” series. There has been a lot of banter between them, with Crush dipping Wendy’s figurative pigtails in the ink well. Now we get to to watch their relationship develop front and center. The readers got a dose of Crush’s backstory throughout the series, but Mayor Trent was a closed book. Stunning, smart and very much alone, Wendy keeps people at arm’s length with a warm smile. When Wendy’s “past” comes looking for her, the calm composed Mayor Trent finds herself on a rollercoaster! I loved this story! Every book in this series was my favorite when I read it, and this one is no exception - “Crushing It” is an apt title! This author is a master at crafting a rich romance tinged with enough conflict and mystery to keep you riveted. Although it is a novella, the characters and plot are so well-written and developed you truly believe that you have read a full-size novel! And although it is part of a series, it works well as a stand-alone story. It was also wonderful to read a story featuring characters that have lived life and “been around the block.” Another fantastic read by an amazing contemporary romance author!
