ARC Review: Home Run King by Stella

The Cover: I think the cover of Home Run King is very simplistic, actually I think it is TOO simplistic honestly. 

Basics:Home Run King was released on February 21st 2018. Genre wise Home Run King belongs to contemporary romance and sports romance. 

Description: My life was what country songs are made of: my Granny died, my girlfriend broke up with me, I knocked up her cousin, and I was inducted into the Major League Hall of Fame. Yup…just like every country song I’ve ever heard.

But let me start over…my name is Gage Nix. That’s all you need to know.

Actually, there’s a lot more to Gage than meets the eye. My name’s Katie Crisp, and I had a front row seat and the inside scoop. In a moment of grief and desperation, I allowed the Home Run King to…well, hit a home run on my diamond. He not only knocked it out of the park, but he also knocked me up. 

Raising two babies—the one I was carrying, and Gage—wasn’t what I signed up for. But he gave me no choice. I only wish I hadn’t waited until the end of the season to see that he was my MVP. Oh, and the only hall of fame he’s ever been inducted into is his own.

Overall thoughts: Yay for a sports romance book that isn’t football and for versatility! Home Run King is a funny, romantic, sporty romance book that will keep your attention because Katie and Gage’s relationship isn’t normal and the way they started together is beautiful. It’s also a strange one because they weren’t exactly together and boom! They become pregnant so to me that’s a story that I want to keep reading because I want to know how it unfolds.

Gage is one of those guys that are hilarious and irritating at the same time but has a sweet side to him that just makes you wish you were in Katie’s shoes. Katie has her own struggles but she maintains as a kick butt heroine with a fierce determination that will automatically you either relate to or like her. I really loved Home Run King and it’s wonderful story but I had one small issue. They are clearly physical and intimate with one another throughout the book but I didn’t think there was written content for that. But besides I was very happy with this book and I suggest you check it out if you love baseball and romance together!
