  • Another home run for this author!

    This book was another home run for this author! I absolutely love how her books are about men who happen to be athletes, instead of letting the sport take over the book! It makes the story so much....more! And JJ & Riley gave us an amazing story, with lots of twists and turns, surprises around every corner! JJ is a pro baseball player, who is living is best life. Until his fun life gets turned around when a little surprise lands in his lap! And he has no idea what to do about it! Luckily, he has his friends and family to back him up, and help him along until he figures it out! Riley is the kind of girl that everyone wants in their corner. She is just perfect! She takes whatever life throws at her and just "rolls with the punches"! When JJ needs help, she immediately offers her services, regardless of how it makes her feel. This book was great in so many ways! All of my favorite types of stories all rolled into one amazing package. This author just keeps putting out amazing books, and I'm just going to have to keep reading them! Riley & JJ's story is one of those that you read in one sitting, and then go back to read again! Definitely a must read!

  • "The air between us crackles."

    I absolutely love Justin and Riley from Samantha Lind’s latest book!! We met them briefly in the first book in the series, and I knew then that they would make a romantic and sexy couple. The addition of a surprise baby, the adorable Evie, made this a five star read for me. The love Justin has for his daughter was immediate and beautiful, even when he had no idea how to care for her. His desire to learn and nurture was very apparent and the scenes where Riley was instructing him stole my heart. I was glad that they always put Evie’s care first and their little family grew closer every day. Riley always knew what to do when it came to Evie which made Justin’s transition to fatherhood that much easier. It was only natural that Justin and Riley began seeing each other as more than employer and nanny, but acting on those feelings was another matter entirely. It was obvious to me that they were crazy about each other, but Riley was uncertain as to what might happen to their friendship if they gave in to their desires. She loved Evie and would never jeopardize her job and she dreamt every night about being with them forever. Life definitely threw Justin a curve ball with the arrival of his bundle joy. Fortunately for him, Riley appeared like a fast ball over home plate to win his heart and make his family complete.

  • Another stellar hit!

    This series just gets better and better! Ms. Lind's confidence in her writing has grown with every new book she releases. This is the story of JJ and Riley. When a surprise knocks JJ off his axis, it's Riley that comes in to save the day. The chemistry between these two is wicked hot.  Their spark lights up the pages. Riley is such a giving soul.  She is just what JJ needs to tame his playboy ways.  I admired her flirty banter and take-charge attitude when it comes to what she wants. JJ is just swoony! Yes, he's a former playboy, but his dirty talk is on point and when he realizes what a treasure Riley is, he is determined to make Riley his own. This a sweet, slightly angsty story that really pulls the reader into the world that Ms. Lind has created. It was lovely seeing past characters make appearances! Don't be discouraged by that last sentence, this can totally be read as a standalone! Fans who have read Ms. Lind's previous stories will see small glimpses into other characters.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Home run!!

    5 Stars Review by Elizabeth Late Night Reviewer Up All Night with Books Home run!! Samantha Lind has delivered yet another book worth tons of home runs!! The Curve Ball is just as addicting as baseball, well in my case football. I remember glimpses of Justin while reading the previous book, The Perfect Pitch. Justin is nice do not get me wrong but boy is that man a playboy. He should be named Playboy extraordinaire with how popular with the ladies he is. However, I can say that man does one heck of a turn around and this time it is not for a woman. Well, a woman he wants to date anyway. Not only did Evie, his daughter, make him see the wrong with his ways, so did Riley. Riley is off limits as she is his best friend's sister. Yep, you heard right. Best friend’s sister. Books within the trope, best friends sister, are always banging because it involves sneaking around -- sometimes. I have read many of Samantha’s books and I have to say that The Curve Ball is within my top five favorite books by her. I was blown away with how well she was able to pin down Riley and Justin. She threw in just the right amount of romance and feels. I loved that there was not any unnecessary drama between the characters. I also loved that it was not rushed, it was well paced. They both had Evie’s best interest at heart before themselves and that made the book all the better.

  • Definitely Catch This One!

    "Evie might have turned my world upside down in a matter of minutes when Erica dropped her on my doorstep, but it was Riley that threw the curve ball I never saw coming." Awww... this was such a sweet story. I mean, who doesn't love a man who is so totally out of his element, finding love with the woman who came to his rescue? So, we have Justin, "JJ" Johnson, catcher for the Indianapolis Lightning baseball team. Player extraordinaire both on the field and off, he's not one for putting down any roots with anyone. Then, in the blink of an eye, his past knocks on his door and forever changes his future. A baby? He has absolutely no clue what to do, right? Enter Riley, his best friend's little sister. If he thinks baby Evie has changed his life, he has no idea what Riley is going to do to it! Riley swoops in to help JJ out when he unexpectedly becomes a single father. He's clueless and she knows just what to do. But the live-in nanny position only fuels the attraction she feels for him until one day - KABOOM!! She knows his reputation of playing the field but she can't help herself. If he hurts her, she'll never survive. Not only would it mean losing JJ, but losing Evie too. Can JJ change his ways, or is all of this a bad idea? I enjoyed this story. No real drama, no angst, just a sweet story of meant to be.
