Release Blitz & Book Review: Fastball by A.M. Hargrove & Terri E. Laine

Fastball: A Wilde Players Dirty Romance
by A.M. Hargrove & Terri E. Laine 
Release Date: September 22nd, 2016
Cover Design: Michele Catalano Creative; Photography: Sara Eirew


USA TODAY BESTSELLING authors, Terri E. Laine and A.M. Hargrove bring a new full-length standalone, Contemporary Romance novel.

Our relationship starts off like a bad joke.
A gorgeous guy walks into a bar and says to me, “Do you want to F#ck?” and damn if I don’t say yes.
And that should have been it—the punch line.
We never should’ve seen each other again.
Only we do.

Turns out sex on a stick, Ryder Wilde is more than an orgasm-giver. He’s a player. Not just any either. A Major League Baseball pitcher. And damn, I want to be his catcher.
Except he doesn’t want to play any games or follow my rules:
No relationships.
No falling in love.

Because he’s used to winning … and wants to claim me as his prize.
His mission is to own me body and soul, no matter how much I push him away.
Powerless to stop him, I can only hope my heart isn’t another casualty of his fastball.

About the authors:
A.M. Hargrove: 
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author. She fancies herself all of the following: Reader, Writer, Dark Chocolate Lover, Ice Cream Worshipper, Coffee Drinker (swears the coffee, chocolate, and ice cream should be added as part of the USDA food groups), Lover of Grey Goose (and an extra dirty martini), #WalterThePuppy Lover, and if you’re ever around her for more than five minutes, you’ll find out she’s a non-stop talker.

Terri E. Laine:
Terri E. Laine, USA Today bestselling author, left a lucrative career as a CPA to pursue her love for writing. Outside of her roles as a wife and mother of three, she’s always been a dreamer and as such became an avid reader at a young age.
In her early years, she and her best friend would tell each other stories over the phone when they were bored. They called them their "soap operas" and generally revolved around whatever boy they liked at the time.
Many years later, she got a crazy idea to write a novel and set out to try to publish it. With over a dozen titles published under various pen names, the rest is history. Her journey has been a blessing, and a dream realized. She looks forward to many more memories to come. 

My review: 

What a pleasant surprise!! I mean, I know that Terri E. Laine and A.M. Hargrove are amazing writers and I loved all their previous works that I’ve read so far but I was still surprised at how much I loved this short read! It was so hot!!! I love me some Wilde boy =P

This is the second book in the Wilde Players Dirty Romance Series and even though you don't have to have read the first book since they are both standalones, the characters are friends and take part in both books so if you want to read this series I would suggest you to read it in the correct order.

The Story:
Gina was abandoned by her own mother when she was a baby and her father never really cared for her. That's why she never gets too close to people to keep from getting hurt. One-Night-Stands and bad boys are what she's seeking and nothing more.
Ryder Wilde doesn't get scared away by her attitude and keeps coming back to her even though she is a hard nut to crack. He's too vanilla for her liking and she believes they aren't compatible though he is determined to try and show her how well they fit together.

Who will be right? Gina in thinking of them as being not compatible or Ryder in believing of them being the perfect fit?
Gina is used to running away but will he keep chasing her? For how long until he’ll give up? Is her sex lifestyle something he’s really sure to try and can he give her what she craves for?

I’ve read the first book and liked it a lot but this one I absolutely loved!! What a hot sizzling read - especially the first part of the book - and her family’s story was so touching!
The steamy parts were sexy as hell and it felt like all the best parts of a full length novel were put into this shortish, quick read. It’s almost like watching your favorite romance movie in fast forward. I didn’t really connect with Gina’s character but I absolutely loved Ryders. I enjoyed how Ryder never gave up and was determined to have her and show her that she's worthy of love. Everybody needs a person like him in his life.

If this doesn't turn you on then I have no idea what does. Hawt baseball guy meets sexy siren with claws! Ready, set, go! Read!! =P
