H_R2 LINE DRIVE ebook-1600x2400

Blurb

James “Scooter” Harney is good at two things and two things only:

Pitching…

…and running away from his feelings.

So, when he comes face to face with a high school baseball coach who gets under his skin like no one ever has before, James isn’t quite sure what to do about it. After all, Ridley is smarmy, annoying, ridiculously good looking…

And worst of all, straight.

Then, James’ world is turned upside down one evening when Ridley admits that he’s been having thoughts. Thoughts about James. Thoughts that are making him question his own identity.

James knows he won’t make a good boyfriend, but the way Ridley looks at him, the way Ridley trusts him, makes James realize that maybe—just maybe—there’s something worth fighting for.

Exceptional disability rep in this sports romance

H_R1 SWITCH HITTER ebook high-resSwitch-Hitter by E.M. Lindsey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As someone who was paralysed from the neck down for six months and has been left with neurological joint, tendon and muscle damage throughout my body, the disability rep in this book is astoundingly good.

Everything Thierry goes through is something I’ve experienced and E.M. nails not only the descriptions of the sensations you feel – or sometimes don’t – but also the emotional effects it can have on someone.

I also felt Pietro’s ADHD was an authentic depiction, I have no personal experience of this myself but have worked as a volunteer with a charity that helps people with this condition.

The romance itself is a sort of halfway point between a second chance and a “former bully” style with a lot of ground to cover before you, as the reader, could feel that it was possible and I think this aspect was also done exceptionally well.

I won’t go into too much of the plot, but I loved the setting, the secondary characters like Thierry’s friends who are also involved in his recovery and Pietro’s teammate and best friend James aka Scooter, are wonderfully brought to life.

The baseball elements were just enough for me to not have my eyes glaze over because of my lack of knowledge about the sport and still keep me invested in everything Pietro and James were dealing with as athletes.

My one “complaint” as such would be to say I wished I’d known there was already a book for Pietro’s brother Gabriel and his partner Ezra as I would have read that first, throughout this narrative I felt like I was missing bits each time they appeared.

So I would suggest people read Nothing Ordinary: A Hit And Run Novel before this one!

Other than that, my first read from this author and I’m very much impressed.

Very sweet college romance from Christina

55770241._SY475_Bat Boy by Christina Lee

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Christina Lee’s new adult college romances.

Her couples always feel like they really are taking their first steps into a lifelong relationship which has all the right ingredients to succeed.

With this one, she pops in a sports sub-genre plot which also adds some great background tensions without overtaking the main narrative which focuses on both a coming out and an opposites attract theme.

I loved both Brady and Kellan, they were super sweet and had a great build up into a solid friendship which naturally evolved into more.

It’s medium steamy, as I’d expect for an NA setting, and there’re loads of feels all over the place.

This one made me go “awwww” a lot, it is just a smashing feel good romance.

I’m also hugely intrigued by the hints given for the next couple in the series!
