My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
I know I don’t normally give you a review of Saturday but I just finished this book and I thought I should let you know now rather than later and fit it in at the end of this ever growing list of reviews.
This isn’t the type of book that I would normally share with you, but if I am totally honest, it is very much the type of book that I enjoy reading. It takes me just a few hours to get through these books and during the grey weather we seem to be having at the moment it beats moping about and doing nothing.
So without further ado … let me introduce the book.
Strike Out! (Texas Titans, book 1), Cheryl Douglas
When professional baseball player, Zach Foster, agreed to go into business with five of his best friends, he didn’t expect their little sports bar to evolve into a national chain, spanning fifty states, but it did. The business helps to fill the void in Zach’s life during the off-season, but when he closes his eyes at night, he still can’t forget the girl who left that gaping hole in his heart when she left him standing at the altar.
Lauren ‘Rennie’ Alexander would do anything to fulfill a sick child’s wish. Not only is it her job, as director of the Sky’s the Limit Foundation, but it’s her passion. So when her assistant brings her a letter scribbled in crayon, complete with an application from the little boy’s loving parents, Rennie is ready to make another dream come true. Until she realizes that sick little boy’s dream is her worst nightmare. He wants to meet his hero, baseball player, Zach Foster. The same lying jerk who broke Rennie’s heart. It’s seems she has no choice but to take one for the team.
Genre: Romance, Contemporary
As I said at the beginning I really enjoy reading this sort of book, the sort of book I can pass away in just an afternoon. They don’t take much work to read and I am not too bothered if my brother interrupts me when I’m reading them. I don’t feel like I’ve missed anything. I have read his book once or twice before but never though to review it.
When I finished this book I debated whether to give it three or four stars on Goodreads. I think in the end I gave it three for one main reason. There are so many ‘big’ moments. ‘Big’ talks, ‘big’ emotions, ‘big’ scenes that in the end they all crush together, there’s not enough separating them all and in the end they lose all importance.
However in the end I really enjoyed it. Who doesn’t love a cushy romance where you know everything will end up right in the end?
I would most certainly recommend this to someone, but it is not a book that I would scream and shout about.
Have you read it? Let me know in the comments.
