OUT OF THE PARK, LOVED THIS!
I'm not a baseball fan, it's not something that's big in my country but it didn't matter, the characters and the plot was what gripped me.
Ainsley and Cooper first meet when he is doing a fan tour at the zoo with children something Ainsley has organised being a worker at the Zoo.
Cooper is new to the team, a rookie, his whole life has lead up to playing in the big leagues and with an overbearing father the last thing he needs is a relationship but it's instant attraction for both of them.
There's hindrances and opposition along Ainsley and Coopers journey to a hea. Home run is definately not a smooth hit and run, theres plenty of obstacles in the way, making this a page turner of a read, I was completely rooting for this couple to find a way they are great characters, and Cooper is definitely a swoon worthy BBF.
I loved the news and blogger parts in between chapters, brilliant idea.
Home Run is compelling, steady paced, told in dual pov's and an ideal weekend relax and get immersed kind of read that will have you swooning,anxious and happy throughout the journey to the final home plate. There's also a little big of hotness thrown in a well balanced read.
Looking forward to Travis Kidd's book, that guy has a wicked sense of humour and I can't wait for his story.
Arc received by netgalley for review
The second novel in New York Times bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin's Boys of Summer baseball series.
Cooper Bailey finally has a shot at being a major league ballplayer, but it will take all his focus and energy during spring training to make it happen. Complicating things is his instantaneous connection with Ainsley Burke. He can't get enough of her, and before he knows it, they're spending every night together. But as happy as he is off the field, his focus on it is suffering, and he isn't willing to risk his lifelong dream over a girl.
But without Ainsley, Cooper's miserable, and his game is still off. No matter what he tries, he can't get her out of his head, and he's starting to realize that maybe he doesn't want to. Baseball is just a game, but Ainsley might be the real thing. Now he just has to convince her of that.
