ARC Review: Home Run King by Stella

HomeRunKing_ecover
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! 

Couple Chemistry Rating: 5/5 Shells

Favorite Quotes: “Once we get through the next few weeks, then together, we can figure how to move forward. But you can’t let your team down. You love baseball.” “I love you two more than I’ve ever loved the game.” Katie & Gage.

Except: Home Run King by Stella

Home Run King by Stella is an all new standalone sports romance coming February 22nd!!

HomeRunKing_ecover

Blurb: 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. 

 Excerpt: When her eggs were done and the two slices of bread popped up from the toaster, I took both plates to the table and went back for our drinks. Two glasses of orange juice and a handful of pills later, I took my seat in front of her.

“What are these?” she asked while studying the assorted capsules in front of her.

“Vitamins. I read about all the good ones you need and even asked the clerk at the drugstore about which prenatal was the best.”

Her gaze lifted from the table to my face, and the pale-blue color turned so light they were almost see-through. Every now and then she’d look at me like this, almost in awe, yet I couldn’t figure out why. Actually, it made me a little uncomfortable at times, as I wasn’t sure how to react to the brief glimpses of affection in her stare. Although, this time, I was pretty sure it was confusion rather than adoration.

“When did you get these?” A hint of surprise danced in her soft-spoken words.

“This morning.” I shrugged and scooped a spoonful of egg into my mouth. “I went after my run.”

Normally, she’d berate me for talking with my mouth full, but not this time. Instead, she went back to studying the pills on the table. “What’s this?” She held up the black bean and squinted as if she needed glasses to see it. “Is this a coffee bean?” And just like that, the Katie I knew was back.

“Yeah. You won’t shut up about coffee, so I got you some.”

“What am I supposed to do with this?”

I lifted one shoulder and took another bite. “Eat it. Smell it. Doesn’t matter to me what you do with it. Heck…drag it through a cup of hot water and call it a latte for all I care.”

Release Blitz & Review: Third Base by Stella

ThirdBase_ecover.jpg

The Cover: I adore this cover! I think it’s visual pleasing to the eye and very sexy! I like how the baseball bat was added but I feel like it needed more baseball added to the cover because the sport is a important part of the story! A-

Basics: Third Base was released on November 2nd, 2017, published by GFY Publishing and is 335 pages long. Genre wise Third Base belongs to sports romance, childhood romance and contemporary romance. 

Description: First base: kissing.
Second base: above the waist.
Third base: below the waist.
Home run: no explanation needed.

Every baseball player knows to keep their eye on the ball and swing for the fences. Each base counts, but a home run is the goal. No one wants to strike out. This is true both on and off the field.

Ellie had been my best friend since we were born, and we had a plan—get out of the tiny Alabama town we’d grown up in and go to college…together. But even life’s best-laid plans could throw a powerful curveball. Rather than attend classes, I was now the starting pitcher for a Major League team.

While my game-day stats were impressive, my record with women was less desirable. I was the professional baseball player who hadn’t been able to make it past third base since the one and only night I’d played hardball with my best friend. 

When the bottom of the ninth came to a close on my career, I had to decide if our friendship was worth more than a few extra innings.

Third Base Teaser Handle

Overall thoughts: FINALLY! A baseball romance! I loved the romance book world but when it comes to sports romance I thought they all revolved around football! I absolutely adored this story; there is nothing better than reading about two people growing up together and falling in love, along with dealing with a few bumps along the way. I thought the writing and story was very relatable and honest and I enjoyed Ellie and Coby’s relationship very much. 

If you are looking for a sweet childhood, baseball sporty type romance with some fun humor along the way, Third Base is for you! Harper and Walls make a great team and I will definitely be looking forward to their future works together.
