What's New to Review ~ Wednesday!It's been another crazy, hectic week here as my house renovations are taking over almost every single other aspect of my life. But, my weekly read was something I was not willing to give up. I put my foot down and explained to my hubby that you wonderful readers NEEDED me to post my blog this morning to tell you all about another fabulous book. (And it was fabulous!) He finally saw things my way, and I got an hour break, and you get to hear about an amazing new novella! So it's a win-win-win!
The Book~Grand Slam is a novella length story, coming in at just over 16k and released by Sweet Cravings Publishing January 22, 2014. A quick read, I was done in under an hour, and some sport analogies in it but nothing that would get anyone confused. I am a sports fan, but not a baseball fan. Football and Hockey are my men sports, and Soccer for the ladies. However, I was not confused at all with the backdrop of this sport, as the author did a decent job of incorporating the big events of a game without over detailing it.
The Plot~A wonderful week of passion after college graduation, leaves our heroine, Brittany, with a lifetime of wonderful memories and a token that she won't soon forget. Raising a child on her own is her personal choice, besides how could she stand in the way of all his major league dreams. But keeping secrets always has its downfall.
When her son begs to her to go to the game with him, Brittany fears that her life will topple to the ground. If big baller Justin were to find out about his son, he may take her life away. She's already lost half her heart to the playboy, she won't let him take the other half of her heart as well.
Enter the hero, it's been almost eleven years since he's seen her, but he's thought of her every day. Sure there are tabloids and gossip columns rumors, but Justin is still searching for the one that got away.
When he hits a Grand Slam and her face appears on the jumbotron, he's sure it's his imagination, but the camera zooms in again and he knows it's her. With raw emotion he aims to get what he lost back, but something doesn't sit well in stomach. And the tides, they are turning.
The Verdict?Ms. Matthews, I am in love with your writing style! This was a story of true character development and emotion. The intertwined back story was believable with all the detail and explanation. A tug at my heart strings and almost a tear in my eye. This story was a step apart from almost everything I've reviewed here so far. With minor sexual scenes written in to enhance the story, but not overpower, I believe that Ms. Matthews will one day grace the coveted New York Times Best Seller list! Really, truly amazing writing here.
It's a "Five Cups of Love" read!
Though I'd give it 6 if I could!
