What’s wrong with my butt?
She means those words to be directed toward the woman beside her, not him. But he can’t stop himself from answering. Not when her ass is the most magnificent thing he’s seen in his life.
Apparently, answering her with ‘not a damn thing’ wasn’t what she was expecting.
She likely wasn’t expecting the baseball she took to the face at his next at bat, either.
All it takes is one ill-fated foul ball, and George Hoffman, Lumberjacks center fielder, falls head over heels in love with Wrigley Field—and yes, that is her real name.
From that point forward, George and Wrigley fall into a fast whirlwind love that ends with them eloping to Vegas. And he has his potty mouth, titty bar owning, pain in the ass grandmother to thank for it.
Not that he’s complaining or anything.
Who wouldn’t want to be married to a woman that made his heart race like he was in the final game of the World Series?
The only problem is trying to convince her of that.
A grand slam!
Lani once again brings to life characters larger than life.. you root for and want to throat punch them at the same time. Wriggly and George are a hot mess of a couple that I really enjoyed watching work their way to happily ever after. Looking forward to the other books in this series.
No Character Development This Time
I love Lani Lynn Vale’s books but this one just didn’t click. I felt like we never really got to know the characters or their stories. It was all bam,bam, bam no trust no back story. Also the female leads lack of applying the same thinking of cutting off her own negative family member compared to how she told/did to the male leads made me feel like she was being a hypocrite. Hopefully the next book is better.
I don’t know how this lady does it but my hats off to her. Too have so many characters in your head waiting for their turn an knowing who to turn to must be hard. She never disappoints and with George and Wrigley (perfect name in this series can you tell I’m from Chicago). This angst filled romance might have had the best starting point but in between the beginning and ending is nothing short of fantastic. These stubborn and willful people are so close yet so apart that I ache for them. This book was so doggone good that I wish it didn’t end and neither will you. Thanks Lani for another homer so well with the wait!!!!
