Grand Slam by Heidi McLaughlin

McLaughlin_GrandSlam_TR

Win the game. Lose your heart.

Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That’s supposed to be the “perk” of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don’t want just any woman; I want her.

She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can’t stop thinking about the one night we spent together- and her look of regret the morning after.

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She’s every ballplayer’s dream woman. And I’d do anything to make things right with her.

I’m done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.

Series Page on Goodreads

This series has easily been one of my favorites. I am an avid baseball fan and to see my favorite sport transformed into the romance scene, while still maintaining its sports integrity has been so amazing to read.

With that said, I think the author saved the best for last because this story ripped my heart out. And it was so fitting. These books can be read as standalones, if you wanted to. But I will tell you that reading Ethan and Cooper’s stories first (Third Base & Home Run) will make Travis’ story so much sweeter for you.

In the other books, and even in the start of this story, we see Travis Kidd, player on many levels. Travis isn’t afraid to enjoy the “perks” that come with being an athlete. But then there is another side of Travis that readers have never met before. The serious, caring, attentive side. The side that wants more from his life than just random women in and out.

Saylor Blackwell would like to be immune to Travis Kidd. But she isn’t. I really loved Saylor’s character because she has been dealt some serious blows in life, but it never defines her. One of my favorite aspects of Saylor is that her problems are real. As I got to know Saylor, I felt like I could find many other women, or men, who’d been dealt the same hand and had to rise up over it. I appreciated that the author let Saylor shine, and didn’t try to make her into someone you just felt sorry for. I felt immense respect and admiration for her.

If you love this author, or sports romance, you will love this book. Its intense on a variety of levels, and the chemistry between Saylor and Travis was indescribable.

I can’t say how much I loved this book. Heidi McLaughlin knows baseball and romance, and combining the two has truly been a Grand Slam for her readers.
