Baseball is life, the rest is just details.
Everyone who’s played the game has heard those words a time or two. But Hancock has heard them his entire life from his parents. His family has lived and breathed baseball even before he started little league.
Hancock “Parts” Peters has a name that inspires grins across many faces, but the moment those faces get their first look at him, those grins slide away.
Hancock is gruff, filterless, and doesn’t give a crap who he offends. He is the only man in baseball who doesn’t care if he gets an endorsement or not. He’s there to play the game. He’s there to win. He’s there because baseball is his life.
People think he’s a jerk.
And maybe he is. But if that’s how he has to come off to get people to leave him the hell alone so he can play in peace, so be it. The less people he has to worry about offending, the better.
Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back.
Sway Coffman didn’t mean to rock the boat. She was just there to do her job.
Sure, she was a woman in a man’s world. Yes, she beat out several of those men to get the job as head athletic trainer for the professional baseball team, The Texas Lumberjacks. And yeah, she now got hate mail from those men.
But she’s good at her job, and she earned the position.
What she is not good at, however, is talking to men.
Men seem to see her curvy hips, large breasts and thick thighs and automatically think she is incompetent. Because surely a fat girl couldn’t get the job treating some of the most fit and athletic men in the world, right?
This fat girl got the job, and she is proud of it.
What else did she get?
The attention of the sexiest bearded man she’d ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.
It was enough to bring to her down to her knees…in front of that man, the hot and grumpy baseball player, Hancock Peters.
I found this book difficult to read. Story jumped around too much and introduced too many characters that weren’t necessary to the story. Finally just jumped to the epilogue to get done. Disappointed as I had read another book in the series first and enjoyed it.
Great start to a new series!
Great start to a new series! This book had it all! An amazing alpha dirty talking hero and a strong feisty heroine that comes off sweet and shy, but don’t let her fool you. Sway and Parts banter was awesome and a great source of entertainment. This book was funny, it was sweet, the characters had chemistry that was scorching! It was so captivating I couldn’t put it down.
Hancock “Parts” Peters is a catcher for his professional baseball team and is known as short tempered, tattooed and one of the sexiest players in MLB! He doesn’t put up with anyone’s crap and he really doesn’t put up with anyone disrespecting women. He is so swoon worthy! I loved his character!
Sway is the head athletic trainer for Parts team. It is a job that she was very qualified for and she was good at her job. She was harassed because of her curvy body and not taken seriously by a few people. She was able to hold her own and with Parts on her side, she could do anything.
I don’t want to give anything away as I want you to experience this terrific story for yourself. I absolutely loved the characters, storyline, humor and all the hot scenes between Parts and Sway.
If you love sports romance, pick up this book! I promise you won’t regret it!
Absolutely, love this cover it couldn't be any more perfect!
I always fall in love with Lani Lynn Vale's characters and Pitch Please was no different. Her writing is addictive and you become attracted to not only the two main characters but all of the supporting characters as well.
Hancock "Parts" Peters is complete Alpha on and off the field, he does what he wants and nothing else & nobody questions that because he is the starting catcher and all-star of the team! Underneath it all, he is just a good southern boy with a dirty mouth! Sway Coffman is the athletic trainer who has baseball in her blood. She is confident and innocent all wrapped up in the perfect curvy package. I love how they had an instant connection but it builds over a quick friendship, their relationship doesn't seem rushed it just seems real...even if it only took them 2 weeks to form an everlasting bond!
Pitch Please was a great start to what I assume will be another standout series by Lani Lynn Vale! I can't wait to see who story will be revealed next...Connor's (fingers crossed)! Oh yeah, and I am hoping that Hannibal has a story coming!
"As long as you're with me, baby, I can handle just about anything."
