A Sports Romance Standalone

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.

He’s the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom. 

When he runs the bases, every woman’s eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame. 

I’m no queen. I’m a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season. 

Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.

My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.

But there’s not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.

Until the night I do. And everything changes.


Hardball is a SMOKING HOT, SEXY romance with a touch of angst and a ton of heart from CD Reiss. It's a fun, witty, full-length standalone.

Sexy & Sweet Sports Romance will leave you grinning

HardBall by CD Reiss is a charming, sweet contemporary sports romance with some heat. I love the combination of sweet and spicy, and Reiss’ has balanced the two for the perfect game…I mean book.

I fell in love with Reiss’ characters; they are lovable, realistic, and totally relatable. Vivian is an elementary school librarian with a generous heart and a penchant for baseball. She and her fabulous stepdad are ardent Dodgers fans. He is a generous, kind man who is the perfect male role model. His relationship with Vivian is enviably loving and supportive.

When Vivian meets Dashiel Wallace during a school field trip, both their lives are turned upside down. Dash is the elusive, reclusive star shortstop for the Dodgers. He is the quintessential studly athlete. I swooned over Reiss’ descriptions of Dash ‘s athletic prowess and features. Dash, #19, is easy on the eyes, but there is so much more to him. A guy with Dash’s swagger who talks about books and can quote classic literature will undo me every time! What made Dash absolutely delicious was not his seeming perfection, but all his foibles. Reiss’ characterization of this man hit home with me.

HardBall is a pitching dual. It’s all about skill and strategy. The plot is well paced, and Reiss doesn’t rush the layered development of characters and relationships. Reiss did not shy away from showing her characters inner demons and struggles—whether they eventually overcome them or not. The story dynamics and chemistry between all the characters is engaging. Reiss’ always makes me care deeply about her characters; she has also filled my fictional little black book with delightful book boyfriends. Pay careful attention to the descriptions of Los Angeles and the Dodgers’ empire, because it is almost as good as taking a tour of the town.

I loved the structure of the story. It is told in dual point-of-view narrative, and Reiss’ incorporation of late night text messages between Viv and Dash—replete with the typing symbol, “ {…}” is engaging and au courant. I felt the characters anticipation as they stared at their phone screens anxiously waiting while the other typed out their response.

Does Reiss know baseball? Yeah, she does! Her descriptions of the shortstop to second plays are poetic. This book was written by a smart, romantic, woman who is also a fan of baseball. I really enjoyed this enchanting, sports romance; it brought a lot of smiles to my face, a couple chuckles, and a bizarre desire to watch some men in snug white pants run around a grassy field. With HardBall, Reiss’ has hit for the cycle.

Loved it!!

Love the game, the team, the characters, the story, everything. It was such a good read
