Superb disabled representation adds depth to this sports romance

H_R2 LINE DRIVE ebook-1600x2400Line Drive by E.M. Lindsey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That’s two for two on my EM Lindsey experience so far.

This baseball series is shaping up to be an absolutely fantastic one with incredible disability representation.

Here it’s Cerebral Palsy, one of the MCs’ son has it as a consequence of a difficult birth and the way his disability and difficulties are written is exceptional. I have a friend with two children who have CP because of premature birth and their experiences are so similar.

There’s also some fabulous trans representation too as Phoenix is FtM and a typical bolshy teenager.

I really loved the way that this complexity was written, and I loved the sass and conviction that Phoenix had about living his best life.

This is obviously James’ story, aka Scooter, and when you find out more about how he grew up, well I reckon your heart will break just like mine did.

He’s such a sweetheart but he’s also vulnerable and he’s so deserving of being loved even though he doesn’t feel himself capable.

When he crosses paths with Phoenix’s dad Ridley, it becomes very clear there might be a wonderful kind of future there if both men can weather their doubts and insecurity.

What I enjoyed the most about this book, same as with book one, is that these doubts and insecurity issues are utterly realistic and familiar.

You don’t get any unnecessary drama thrown in just for the sake of raising a tension point. The worries, the fears which bring wobbles into the relationship development are genuine.

As James falls head over heels, he’s stymied by not only his own concerns but also because Ridley’s coming to terms with his bisexuality and all the extra complications from being a single dad with a disabled transgender son.

I was cheering these two along their unsteady path with great gusto and as they reached towards happiness I was full of joy for them all

The Epilogue is truly lovely and I’m intrigued now to see what happens next.

H_R2 LINE DRIVE ebook-1600x2400


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


…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.

Rules Schmules Cover


It’s not my milkshake that brings Kieran Kendall to my yard. Okay, maybe it’s a little bit my milkshake. But I also like to think it’s my dazzling personality and my magical… uhm… you get the idea.

Since meeting Kieran, my first, second, and admittedly third impressions of him have changed radically. Not surprising, since he was a prize D during at least two of those encounters. What I should be doing is running from the college basketball star who checks so many of my dream-guy boxes. But do you know how hard it is to find a hot guy who’s as smart as he is talented?

And I’m not just talking about his talent on the basketball court. Heck no.

It’s easy to get distracted by him, because of him, yet as far as he’s concerned, I’m the one who’s a distraction and throwing his carefully constructed plans out of whack.

I should be sorry. I should also be better at guarding my heart.

But Kieran Kendall is under my skin, and getting him to break his rules is far too much fun.
