Grand Slam by Heidi McLaughlin


Grand Slam by Heidi McLaughlin

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.

First things first: this amazing book is now available in paperback! FINALLY!

Heidi McLaughlin really knows how to make a reader fall in love with her stories. The Boys of Summer series has easily become one of my favorites of all-time. I attribute a lot of this to the fact that she knows baseball and does the sport justice, while still giving the reader the romance they are looking for.

This story is fast-paced and I appreciated that. The story has different complexities happening; one of the major ones being that Travis Kidd is accused of rape, when there is no way he could have done it. Then you have the past relationship between himself and Saylor.

I loved Travis Kidd. It was easy to see why, especially in the past books, he’s always the ladies man. He’s charismatic and charming. Then you have Saylor. Of all of the stories I’ve read recently, I was most happy to see Sayor end up with Travis. Saylor is stressed out, rigid, extremely busy. I loved seeing her character connect with Travis because, as the reader, I felt like I could visually see Saylor become happier when she was with Travis.

If you love sports romance, you will absolutely love this story. The author knows her sport, and weaves a realistic but loving story.
