Fastball by A.M. Hargrove and Terri E. Laine
Release Date: September 22, 2016
Cover Design: Michele Catalano Creative

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.
I enjoyed the last collaboration that I read by these two authors so I was really excited when I saw that they had another release. There were many things that I liked about the story though I felt like it fell short in some areas. Ryder and Gina are hot together! There’s no doubt that they had serious chemistry. There banter was entertaining and I loved the nicknames that they gave each other. Ryder was persistent when it came to Gina, even when he wasn’t sure where things stood with her. You could really tell how much he cared for her. I really liked the relationship that Ryder has with his family. The interaction between him and his sister was hilarious. I thought Gina was the perfect mix of strong and vulnerable. Though she had her fears, for the most part, she didn’t let her past hold her back. That being said, I felt like the story was rushed and parts of it were glossed over. There wasn’t a lot of depth to the story which kept me from really being able to connect with it.
